fork cutting a gluten free no bake coffee cheesecake
No bake Coffee Cheesecake When Javy coffee reached out to me about trying their coffee concentrate in a recipe I had a few come to mind. This was the one that Mr. Everything picked. Mr. Everything loves my no bake cheesecakes. They are creamy and fluffy and not as rich as traditional cheesecake. I don’t know about you but traditional cheesecakes are too rich for me. I barely get a sliver of it and still can’t enjoy the whole thing. No Bake Cheesecakes are another story. They still have the creamy tang you love about traditional cheesecake but it’s light…
Chicken Kabobs with summer time veggies are an easy and delicious dinner that can be ready in under 30 minutes. Learn the tricks to making the perfect kabob.
Queso Fundido with Chorizo is a melted cheese appetizer that’s packed with flavor. It’s one of my favorites to order when out to dinner. Sadly, the last time I had it in a restaurant I was ‘glutened’ sometime during our meal. It scared me away from our stand-by Mexican restaurant and left me without the joys of Queso Fundido. So, as is my fashion, I learned how to make it at home. This recipe is definitely different from the one I used to order. I’m pretty sure the restaurant used processed American cheese. Their Queso Fundido was very loose and…
This gluten free pesto pasta salad is one of our favorites. The pesto is fresh and flavorful with an amazing toastiness from the pistachios. The fresh mozzarella is perfect for balancing out the pesto, so that every bite is flavorful and exciting. This salad is wonderful fresh or after its chilled in the fridge for a bit. Just make sure to use pasta that you like the texture of once cold. I find that pasta made with corn or quinoa tend to have the best texture cold but it’s a personal preference. The mozzarella is marinated in oil and spices…
Mexican Street Corn Salad. Just like normal Mexican Street Corn but without the cob or the mess of assembling the cob. Don’t get me wrong. I love eating corn on the cob and I fell in love with Mexican Street Corn right away. But having to lather every cob with the sauce and then crumbling the Cotjia cheese in a large enough tray or pan to roll the cobs in was too time consuming and messy for me (especially all the dirty dishes afterwards). So I made it into a salad. It’s easier and I can make more of it…
Breakfast Totchos = Golden tater tots, smothered in melted sharp cheese & loaded with scrambled eggs, sausage, and other toppings.
Classic Scotch Eggs with a cheesy twist. Cabot Vermont Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cheese takes Scotch Eggs to a new level of flavor.
Gluten free chocolate chip cookies are the best in your pocket recipe. When it’s been a hard day and you want a little pick me up, you can whip up these cookies quickly. A little soft and gooey (especially when warm) and crisp on the edges. These cookies are perfect with a glass of milk or cup of tea. You can eat them all in one sitting, share with friends, or freeze extra for later. Frozen cookies are perfect for nibbling on during hot days. I start by combining the gluten free flour, baking soda and salt together in a…
Cream Cheese Frosting is the best frosting in my opinion. The creaminess and tang pair so well with all sorts of cakes and baked goods. It’s also one of the easiest to make, using only 5 ingredients, and whipping up in no time. I always use it when frosting my spice cake, carrot cake, and even my classic yellow cake. You can just slather it on with a spatula or if you’re feeling fancy you can pipe it into beautiful designs and patterns on your cake (which is not my strong suit but I try sometimes). This frosting isn’t just…
Eggs Benedict is one of my all time favorite breakfasts. It used to be reserved for only the occasional outing on a weekend, but after I went gluten free it was so hard to find it anywhere. I still only know of one restaurant that serves it gluten free in my area so I decided that I should just learn to make it myself. And you know what? It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Now I make it whenever I feel like it. No more restrictions and I know it really is gluten free! How to…
I’ve always loved getting eggs Benedict when out for brunch. It’s a special treat that I look forward too. I’ve had it in so many forms, the classic with English muffin, Canadian bacon, and poached egg, and even bread-less with crab, asparagus and poached egg. The thing all of them had in common? Hollandaise sauce. What is Hollandaise Sauce? Well, it’s an emulsion of egg yolks, lemon juice, spices, and hot melted butter. It creates a creamy and tangy sauce that’s perfect for breakfast items or vegetable dishes. There are several methods for making a hollandaise but the almost fool…
Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are a classic flavor combination. The lemon gives the perfect tartness and the poppy seeds balance out the sweet/tart flavor, bringing it all together so it’s not overwhelming. Lemon poppy seed used to be my go-to in coffee shops and bakeries. It’s a satisfying flavor combination and it’s also hard to screw it up. So it was usually a safe bet. Do you have an old stand by that you order (or used to order) to see how good a place is? It’s not any different when making them at home. Just 10 ingredients and a…
