Trader Joe’s Chicken Tortilla Soup

This is a first for me.  Both of the TJ’s that I frequent have at least one area for food samples (and at the Newport shop there is a wine bar! I know you’re jealous…cheese too!)  So one of the TJ’s samples I had recently was some Chicken Tortilla Soup.  I thought it was a […]

Gluten Free Stuffed Mushrooms

Easy Gluten Free Stuffed Mushrooms

A lot of stuffed mushroom recipes call for some sort of bread based binder for all of the ingredients.  I’ve experimented with grinding rice crackers or using a rice based bread, but in the end, I find that unnecessary.  So these are super simple and yet very tasty, with the flavor of the mushroom really […]

Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets and Sweet Potato Fries

Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets and Sweet Potato Fries

  Who doesn’t love chicken nuggets, right?  Poor Shani was so sad when she realized this was one of the foods pretty much off her list due to her gluten allergies.  And it definitely is when we eat out.  However, with some creativity, I’ve been able to make a pretty good little nugget that’s a […]
