  • ZUCCHINI SWISS CHARD PESTO GRATINZUCCHINI SWISS CHARD PESTO GRATIN
    This is a quick easy dish to make if you need to use up the last of the summer zucchinis.  With this dish you could use store bought pesto and marinara sauce or you can make your own.  For the marinara sauce I used this one.  If you make homemade there will be leftover sauce ...
  • CREAMY POLENTA BOWL WITH SUMMER VEGTABLES AND PESTOCREAMY POLENTA BOWL WITH SUMMER VEGTABLES AND PESTO
    With all of the lovely summer vegetables available this was a simple tasty dish.  It is a replica - sort of, of a recipe I saw somewhere but seem to have lost.  So, it took some " brain storming" with my not so great memory, some liberty with ingredients and luckily it turned out delicious.  ...
  • MEATLOAF WITH GRAVY!MEATLOAF WITH GRAVY!
    Who knew meatloaf gravy could taste soooo good?  I have been craving meatloaf for days now.  We have had the craziest weather - at one point we were sitting at 29 degrees Celsius, out came all of our fans.  Then it dropped back down to 11 - 13 degrees!  So time for meatloaf.  There are ...
  • CHICKEN IN A CREAMY MUSHROOM DIJON SAGE SAUCECHICKEN IN A CREAMY MUSHROOM DIJON SAGE SAUCE
    Here is another chicken recipe from yesteryear.  I have not thought about this recipe in what feels like 100 years!  When you have to give up any dairy that contains lactose it is surprising how many recipes go by the wayside.   Now we can actually buy Lactose Free Cream, and have been able to ...
  • CHICKEN VEGETABLE RICE CASSEROLECHICKEN VEGETABLE RICE CASSEROLE
    There is something about the combination of chicken, rice, mushrooms and broccoli in a casserole that is pure comfort food.  Back in the day, we used to make the old recipe that used canned cream of mushroom soup for chicken and rice casserole.   I have yet to find a good store bought dairy free, gluten ...
  • ITALIAN POLENTA WITH MARINARA ASPARAGUS AND GOAT CHEESEITALIAN POLENTA WITH MARINARA ASPARAGUS AND GOAT CHEESE
    Oh how I love Italian Food. What I love is, Italians keep their food simple, without any fuss or complex ingredients, always using fresh ingredients and as a result their food is always delicious.  Jamie Oliver once said he was born in the wrong country....I very much think the same thing! This recipe was quick, easy, ...
  • SALMON POTATO CAKESSALMON POTATO CAKES
    This is another salmon dish but had to share as it was such a super easy lunch/dinner to make, I can't believe not having made it before now.  Plus, it was tasty and very economical.  At some point during the week we always end up with leftover potatoes in the fridge - such a great ...
  • SALMON IN A GINGER MARINADE WITH A HEART HEALTHY SIDE DISHSALMON IN A GINGER MARINADE WITH A HEART HEALTHY SIDE DISH
    Where has the time gone? I have just realized Gluten Free Delightfully Delicious is soon to be 8 years old! I have not been posting as many new recipes as I used to as life has taken many a different turn in my neck of the woods.  Having said that, I will continue to post ...
  • CURRIED MUNG BEAN VEGETABLE RICE DISHCURRIED MUNG BEAN VEGETABLE RICE DISH
    This recipe is similar to my Mung Bean Stew - with a few changes/additions.  It is said that mung beans are a legume that are heart healthy, they help to reduce cholesterol, are the least gas forming of all legumes, and they also assist in improving/balancing digestion.  It is my goal/hope for 2018 to eat ...
  • CROCK POT WILD RICE CHICKEN SOUPCROCK POT WILD RICE CHICKEN SOUP
    If you read my blog you will know that while I love the idea and convenience of a crock pot/slow cooker - in terms of success we have really had minimal results - just the odd recipe turns out great.  Usually, we find the dish is lacking in flavor, and any meat is over cooked. ...
  • GREEK BAKED ZITIGREEK BAKED ZITI
    While this recipe was a bit time consuming to make - it was worth the effort.  It has been non stop raining in our area which always makes me want comfort food - with a roaring fire in the fire place blazing away to bring in some added warmth and coziness to our dreary damp ...
  • CREAMY TARRAGON SHRIMP AND LEEKS WITH LEMON RICECREAMY TARRAGON SHRIMP AND LEEKS WITH LEMON RICE
    When dining alone I always gravitate towards seafood - always.  DH is not a seafood lover at all - he will eat fish:  salmon, halibut, cod and snapper but that is about it. No shell fish what so ever.  I suppose I could cook more seafood than I do - but honestly I'm too lazy ...
  • ASPARAGUS BACON FRITTATA WITH A POTATO CRUSTASPARAGUS BACON FRITTATA WITH A POTATO CRUST
    We have had an abundance of fresh organic asparagus and fresh eggs - time to make a frittata - something we all love in this household, and yet something I tend to forget to make.  Not sure why that is, but this was a lovely reminder to make a frittata more frequently. 3 cups shredded yukon ...
  • LEFTOVER TURKEY PASTALEFTOVER TURKEY PASTA
    Recently we had a family reunion/gathering in our household.  We had cousins arrive from our homeland in Denmark...family we have never met before.  I fell in love with these far away cousins and it was an amazing, lovely, gathering of the clan. Everyone brought something food wise to the table this day.  Our cousins brought Danish ...
  • GOOD, NUTRITIOUS, GLUTEN FREE FOODGOOD, NUTRITIOUS, GLUTEN FREE FOOD
    This is a post that finally came down to the result of a whole lot of frustration.  I would like to show case wonderful, delicious, food that is GLUTEN FREE.  Most of it, GLUTEN FREE NATURALLY. There is so much negative hype/nastiness out there these days about Gluten Free this, Gluten Free that, Gluten Free being ...
  • LEFTOVER ROAST BEEF GINGER RICE STIRFRYLEFTOVER ROAST BEEF GINGER RICE STIRFRY
    We had the most tender, flavorful sirloin tip roast beef the other day, with quite a bit leftover and this dish was a great way to use it up.  (plus a number of tasty sandwiches for lunch too) If you do not have left over roast beef, using fresh beef strips would be delicious as would ...
  • CHICKEN SHNITZELCHICKEN SHNITZEL
    For some reason we rarely ever see fresh Veal in our grocery stores, however, using chicken in this dish was wonderful.  This would also be lovely with boneless pork chops too. This was such a quick easy meal to prepare - great for those busy days.  Just steam up some veggies, potatoes, toss together a salad, ...
  • GLUTEN FREE BLACK BEAN VEGETABLE ENCHILADASGLUTEN FREE BLACK BEAN VEGETABLE ENCHILADAS
    Years ago, there used to be a cafe/restaurant in town that served the most heavenly gluten free Mexican Pie.  We didn't get to that part of town very often, but when we did this would be our lunch.  Basically, it was an Enchilada - but the corn tortillas were stacked on top of one another, ...
  • REPOSTED TOMATO RICE SOUPREPOSTED TOMATO RICE SOUP
    This has to be one of my all time favorite soup recipes.  It was one of my first soup recipe posts from 2010 and one I make time and time again. Back in the day....I am talking wayyy back in the day, as a teenager I loved the tomato rice soup that came in a can.  ...
  • GLUTEN FREE CHICKEN CHOW MIEN - Re-posted with ChangesGLUTEN FREE CHICKEN CHOW MIEN - Re-posted with Changes
    Lately these days, there does not seem to be enough time in my day to make new recipe creations or for any Internet blog surfing come to that.  However, I did click onto Linda's blog, Boeddhamum Gluten Free and read that she was in the process of re-posting some of her favorite recipes that have ...
  • SLOW COOKER CHILI CON CARNESLOW COOKER CHILI CON CARNE
    On our recent trip away, we went to a restaurant that has been around for years and years.  On the menu's back pages, they listed various meals that were made from yesteryear - one of them being a piping hot bowl of chili con carne served with a bun for $1.50.  Coffee was 10 cents ...
  • BRAISED ITALIAN SAUSAGES - A NEW WAYBRAISED ITALIAN SAUSAGES - A NEW WAY
    So, here it is:  Swiss style Italian Sausages.  I know....strange yes?  But it worked!  We had Italian sausages defrosted in the fridge and ready to go.  Well, that afternoon I had the most intense craving for Swiss Steak. I  have been wanting to make Swiss Steak for ages now and kept forgetting.  Swiss style Italian ...
  • CHICKEN AND LEEKS IN A CREAMY MUSHROOM SAGE SAUCECHICKEN AND LEEKS IN A CREAMY MUSHROOM SAGE SAUCE
    We have had a week of freezing temperatures, and now there is snow on the ground.  The weather reports say rain is coming, but in the meantime it has been mighty cold.   Time for comfort food. This was an easy mid week meal, yet elegant enough to serve if you have company coming.  If you want ...
  • JAMAICAN JERK CHICKEN A RECIPE REVIEWJAMAICAN JERK CHICKEN A RECIPE REVIEW
    I have never had Jamaican Jerk Chicken before.   My daughter recently returned from a vacation to Jamaica and she raved about the BBQ Jerk Chicken she had there.  She also went crazy over their curries.  So another recipe is in the works for down the road....I just need to find Tamarind paste....so far no ...
  • LASAGNA: A NEW TAKE ON AN OLD TIME FAVORITELASAGNA: A NEW TAKE ON AN OLD TIME FAVORITE
    We have had endless days of rain in our neck of the woods which always leads me to comfort food.  Lasagna being a family favorite.  There are a number of different lasagna recipes on my blog and while this is somewhat of a traditional lasagna there are a few new ingredients as well as a ...
  • CROCK POT VEGETARIAN CHILICROCK POT VEGETARIAN CHILI
    This was a recipe that was recently printed in our local newspaper.  I made some changes to the original - and we were delighted with the results.  Slow cooking with a crock pot has always been a little bit of a hit and miss result with me in terms of flavor.  Usually I have found ...
  • VEGETARIAN PAELLAVEGETARIAN PAELLA
    As mentioned in previous posts, I have been cooking Vegetarian meals about twice sometimes three times a week.  Recently, we found this at our local grocery store: No paid advertisement here....just wanting to share something yummy - a lovely basmati rice/quiona blend vegetarian meal. Next to dried pasta, this is the only thing in my pantry ...
  • PORK CHOPS IN A SHALLOT MUSHROOM SAUCEPORK CHOPS IN A SHALLOT MUSHROOM SAUCE
    What is not to love about shallots?  They are in my humble opinion much more flavorful than any onion - hands down.  They are also more of a "killer" on the eyes in terms of their sting! Regardless, they are my favorite in the Allium family.  So much flavor - and a flavor that retains itself ...
  • CREAM OF LEEK AND KALE SOUPCREAM OF LEEK AND KALE SOUP
    Please excuse the picture quality here...very bad lighting! It has been freezing in our neck of the woods.  When it gets to 4 degrees below zero, that is cold!  And unreasonably so for our area.  All I can think about is a lovely hot bowl of soup with warm Gluten Free French Bread.  Mind you, I ...
  • CHEDDAR KALE POTATO CAKES WITH A LEMON DILL SAUCECHEDDAR KALE POTATO CAKES WITH A LEMON DILL SAUCE
    We had these lovely Cheddar Kale Potato Cakes for lunch one day, however, they would be great as a side dish to any main, as well as a yummy Vegetarian main dish served with roasted squash and a salad.  Easy to make and tasty! LEMON DILL SAUCE: 5 Tblsp. mayonnaise juice of 1/2 a small lemon 1 tsp. Dijon ...
