Slow Cooker Roasted Stuffed Breakfast Peppers

Posted in Gluten Free, and Homemaking

We’ve been fortunate that our chickens have continued to lay throughout the winter. Even though their laying has slowed down some due to the shorter days, I still end up with extra eggs around the house. When I find that I have too many extra eggs on hand, I like to come up with creative ways to use our surplus eggs. Since we love stuffed peppers around here, I thought it would be fun to make a twist on a traditional omelet. Instead of putting the peppers inside the omelet, I would put the omelet in the pepper. While this…

Gluten Free Coconut Granola

Posted in Gluten Free

If you’ve ever priced gluten free granola at the store, you know it can get pretty pricey which is a problem if you have someone in your family who really likes granola. When you have several people who like granola, you end up using granola as a garnish rather than as the main breakfast dish because it’s just too expensive. One of those store-bought bags of granola usually equals roughly 4 bowls of cereal – maybe. Since I buy gluten free oats in bulk, the cost of making oatmeal and granola goes down significantly. I also buy my raisins, nuts,…

Toasted Buckwheat with Cinnamon Apples

Posted in Gluten Free, and Homemaking

Because I want to add more variety in the gluten free whole grains we consume, I thought it would be fun to try out a few recipes with buckwheat. Buckwheat, contrary to how it sounds, is not a wheat product. In fact, it’s not even a grain. It’s actually a seed, but it can be used like a grain. It’s naturally gluten free. Buckwheat has been shown to lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol. It has lots of great health-promoting properties, so it’s easy to see why I would want to add buckwheat to our diet. For this recipe,…

Gluten Free Pumpkin Nut Muffins

Posted in Gluten Free, and Homemaking

For some reason, I was craving something pumpkin yesterday, so I decided to make some pumpkin muffins. Knowing that muffins make a quick and easy on-the-go breakfast, I went ahead and made a double batch, so I could freeze some for later. I like to freeze them individually, so we can just grab a muffin or two as needed. I thought it would be nice to try to make a healthier version of an old favorite. Of course, it would have worked a little better if I would have realized that I didn’t have any eggs. lol! I made them…
