Gluten Free Bread Stuffing | The Baking Beauties

Gluten Free Bread Stuffing

  I was a picky eater as a child. That’s not to say that I’m all bold and daring now. I’m still rather conservative in what I eat, but thankfully I have grown into eating a lot more things. One of the things I never ate as a child was bread stuffing. I have no […]

Gluten Free Caprese Pasta Salad

  Everyone has those nights they don’t know what to make for supper. Especially those days when it’s so hot, you can’t even imagine turning on the oven, or spending more time than necessary in the kitchen. This quick pasta salad takes only as long to prepare as it takes for your pasta to cook, […]

Gluten-Free Spicy Chicken Taco Salad

  My favorite dinners are the kind that are quick to prepare, yet full of flavour. Pasta dishes are always a good option, but as the weather gets warmer and the sun shines longer into the evening, it’s nice to have a repertoire of lighter, healthier salads as well. This Spicy Chicken Taco Salad is […]

Southwest Chicken Mango Quinoa

I love quinoa. Ask me 2 years ago, and I’d never heard of it. Weird how 2 years ago, one hadn’t ever heard of an ancient grain before, but so it goes! I love how quick it cooks up (perfect for those “What’s for supper today” days). I love the nutty flavour it has behind […]

Creamy Quinoa Stuffed Tomatoes

These tomatoes are stuffed with the super healthy, gluten-free, grain-like seed called quinoa. Most of the flavour comes from using the Garlic and Herb flavoured cream cheese. Super simple to make, yet impressive looking and most importantly, delicious! This dish goes great with steak, chicken, or fish.

Waldorf Inspired Quinoa Salad

This salad isn’t a Waldorf salad in the traditional sense, but it takes a lot of the same great flavours of a Waldorf salad, and combines it with the power-house seed, quinoa. I made this Waldorf Inspired Quinoa Salad for supper one day while we were having BBQ beef ring and potato salad, it was […]

Greek Quinoa Salad

Yum! If I had the ingredients on hand, I’d make this Greek Quinoa Salad again. But, I don’t have any feta cheese. Or quinoa right now either. Shoot, guess I’ll just have to be patient and wait a little longer.  We (read “the adults”) really loved this salad. I can’t wait until the summer, when […]
