Gluten Free Cornbread

Gluten Free Cornbread @yourhomebasedmom

You’ll never know this is gluten free cornbread.  Great texture and taste. Yesterday I shared a yummy slow cooker double beef chili recipe with you.  As far as I’m concerned you can’t serve chili without cornbread.  And at our house, cornbread must be made in a cast iron skillet!  Of course, if you don’t have one you can make it in an 8 x 8 baking dish but I think things taste better when they’ve been cooked in cast iron and I just like the way the cast iron skillet [Continue Reading…]

Wild Rice, Dried Cherry & Jones Sausage Dressing

Gluten Free Wild Rice and Sausage Stuffing

I love Thanksgiving.  It probably gets the award for the most cheated holiday though.  In the retail world it seems like we go right from Halloween to Christmas and Thanksgiving just gets skipped right over and cheated out of it’s time in the holiday limelight. I always look forward to Thanksgiving.  Usually for our family it means a trip to Utah to enjoy the holiday with our extended family and our own kids who were all going to school in Utah. This year, though, I am even more excited because [Continue Reading…]

As I mentioned the other day our gluten free journey continues.  This time with my husband.  The good news is, it is helping.  He has done so well with his new way of eating (and lost about 10 pounds as a bonus) that I decided to make him a treat this weekend. You see, one of the downsides of being married to a food blogger is even when you can’t eat the stuff she still keeps making it  – for the blog!  So this last week he has had to [Continue Reading…]

Dairy Free and Gluten Free Cream of Chicken Soup


When my daughter Cali was diagnosed with a wheat and dairy intolerance several years ago it took some adjusting.  It was almost like learning to cook all over again.  One of the biggest challenges was taking some of our family favorite recipes and adapting them so that Cali could eat them.  One of Cali’s favorite family dinners is Hawaiian Haystack.  It is what she always picked for her birthday dinner.  With a wheat intolerance and a dairy intolerance there was no way she could eat it as it contained cream [Continue Reading…]
