Hobbit Day the expanded addition!

I did a post on Hobbit Day and how it came about in my house as a teenager a year or so ago but I thought I would expand on the idea. So if your family is like ours then you have phones and game systems and DS systems, and Hulu, and Netflix and laptops,…

Gluten Free Rosemary Cookies

    My original Rosemary Cookies are by far one of my most popular recipes so I thought I would see if they could be made gluten free without too much trouble or a loss of flavor. I had success! Before we get started let me give you a few tips to help in case…

Gluten Free Fried Pickles

Gluten-Free Fried Pickles I had never eaten a fried pickle until we moved here but now I am addicted! These are a combination of several of the best I have had here with my own twist of using masa and rice flour which keeps them really crunchy. Eat these right away. 3 cups of hamburger…

Gluten Free Scones

Sunflower Brittle with bonus Peanut Brittle recipe

    Apologies for it being so long but I just have not had any good ideas for recipes and then my oven went out. Also, I don’t get paid for this I just do it for fun so forgive the long hiatus. This recipe is an adaptation of one I use every year from…

Enchiladas

Enchiladas have to be one of the easiest things to customize. You can put an unlimited number of ingredients in them and use either flour or corn tortillas and the sauce on top is variable too. I have made mine with chicken, beef, beans, and cream cheese with spinach. I have even done pork filled…

Tex-Mex Beans and Rice

I am no historian so I can’t give you a history of how Tex-Mex food came to be what it is today. I can guess that it is the result of Mexicans trying to replicate dishes that they had at home using the ingredients that they could find in Texas much like the German immigrants…
