Barbecued Shrimp

It’s hard to say what I like best about this recipe: the barbecued shrimp itself or French bread dipped in the savory, buttery sauce.  Twenty years ago, this was one of my favorite ways to cook shrimp. In 2003, after I eliminated gluten from my diet, I quit making it […]

Turkey Nachos with Cranberry Salsa

What do you do with all that leftover turkey after Thanksgiving? Turkey Nachos with Cranberry Salsa, that’s what! I found this recipe in a Whole Foods flier years ago. I changed a few ingredients, then down-sized it for my one-butt kitchen.  I’ve never attempted to cook a turkey in our […]

Carnitas Nachos

Carnitas nachos! Imagine Mexican slow-cooked pork over tortilla chips and topped with jalapeños, avocados, tomatoes, cheese and sour cream. Doesn’t that make your mouth water? Not long ago I saw that on the appetizer menu in a barbecue restaurant. I didn’t order them, but didn’t forget about them either.  One […]

Peach Caprese Salad

When peaches are in season, think peach caprese salad. Peaches are a delicious addition to a traditional caprese salad with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. Most people may think of Georgia or South Carolina when it comes to peaches, but in Colorado our mouths start to water when someone mentions Palisade […]

Chicken peanut sauce over yellow squash noodles
Entrees

Chicken Peanut Sauce

Chicken peanut linguini was one of the meals I missed most when I first went gluten free in 2003. Since then I’ve discovered chicken peanut sauce is just as tasty over zucchini noodles (or “zoodles”), yellow squash noodles (are they “yoodles” from yellow squash?), spaghetti squash, rice or gluten-free linguini. […]

Crispy, golden brown parmesan covers the soft zucchini for a tasty treat.   […]
