Top 12 Country Girl Gourmet Recipes of 2014

12. Potato Soup

This soup is a favorite of my family! It is easy to make and simmers in the crockpot all day. I knew this recipe needed to be on my blog after sharing it with friends and they all agreed it is delicious!

11.New York City Lox and Schmear Bagel in a Bite

A year ago I developed this recipe for RITZ and I have to say the schmear is simply delicious! I have made the schmear much more than just for the super bowl in the past year! It goes well with gluten free crackers too.

10. Gluten Free Corn Casserole

My family LOVES corn casserole and now that I am gluten free I knew I needed to come up with a gluten free version. This recipe is perfect! I have fed it to others who had no clue they were eating something gluten free.

9.RITZ Country Fried Ribs with Zesty Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

This is one of the recipes that made it into the top 12 that really surprised me. Who would have thought to bread and fry ribs? My family assured me they were delicious!

8. Faux Mashed “Potatoes”

This recipe came from my husband deciding to be Paleo. His Paleo lifestyle only lasted  a couple months but I still make this recipe. It is a keeper!

7.Gluten Free Eggplant Parmesan

This Eggplant Parmesan came out of a craving I had and has become a family favorite since! There is no frying of the eggplant either. This eggplant is breaded with gluten free cracker crumbs and then baked.

6. Crockpot Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

This crockpot breakfast has been a hit on my blog since I first blogged about the recipe in 2012.


Who doesn’t like chocolate and peanut butter? You don’t have to be from Ohio to enjoy this treat or wait until Christmas to make them. We love Buckeyes year round! They are among my families favorite sweet treats.

4. Spinach and Strawberry Salad

This is my favorite salad! As long as I can find decent priced strawberries I always have the ingredients to make this salad on hand.

3.Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls or as my family calls them Sweet Rolls are a family tradition and this recipe makes a perfect cinnamon roll. These are one food I dearly miss now that I am gluten free. My goal in 2015 is to venture into the world of gluten free yeast breads so who knows a gluten free version of these may be coming in the future.


2.Gluten Free and Paleo Almond Flour Pancakes

These aren’t your typical pancake but they work in a pinch! They are perfect if you are gluten free or paleo.


1. Roasted Spaghetti Squash

…and the #1 recipe! This post going viral really surprised me! Roasted spaghetti squash is a staple in my diet.  Yes, there are other ways to prepare spaghetti squash but they don’t taste as good as roasted spaghetti squash.
