Gluten Free Beef and Squash Casserole

I recently had a Doctor's appointment in Jackson so went and visited some of my family. My Dad sent me home with fresh squash. Honey and I love fresh vegetables cubed and roasted in the oven but tonight we decided that we wanted something a little different so this is what I came up with.

This recipe was made gluten free but you can change the pkg cream of chicken soup to a can of soup and make it regular.

Gluten Free Beef and Squash Casserole

1 lb. about two heaping cups fresh squash sliced (yellow or zucchini)
1 c. onions, chopped
1 c. Mini Sweet Peppers, I buy Pero at Wal-mart
1 lb. ground beef
3 c. cooked rice
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. grated cheese
1 pkg gluten free cream of chicken soup
1/2 c. sour cream
salt to taste
1/4 tsp. pepper
Cook squash and onions until tender but not mushy. Drain well. Cook ground beef and peppers in skillet until browned. Drain. Add rice, eggs, soup, sour cream and seasonings. Fold in squash. Put in 2 quart casserole. Top with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbly. ENJOY

Fish Tacos using Rudi's Gluten Free Tortillas

Honey was out of town one night last week and I was really tired from a big day at bible school. Normally I would have chosen to eat a sandwich for supper but this night I was craving fried catfish. I don't know why it had only been  4-yrs since I had eaten any. I had just enough farm raised catfish in my freezer for one person so I decided that my craving was going to out weigh my tiredness. I fried up my fish using 

and made slaw to go with it and it was sooo good.

The next day for lunch I thought about how great my catfish was and decided to use my Rudi's plain tortillas and made fish tacos. Oh man I think I could eat these everyday of the week, they were so good. I heated the fish in my oven until it was hot and crispy once more, then I heated the tortilla put the fish on it with a little cocktail sauce over it and topped it off with the coleslaw. Now after blogging this I wish I had more fish!

Go buy some Rudi's gluten free tortillas they are fantastic!

Easy Gluten Free Somoa Brownies

I had chosen this recipe to try gluten free for some of our family who were coming to visit. Well go figure after I had my saliva glands all worked up the family plans changed. So I decided that I was going to make them anyway and eat the whole thing, not really!

Recipe inspired by Penterest

1 Betty Crocker gluten free brownie mix
1 3/4 cups shredded coconut, toasted
(1) 14 oz. package of caramels, unwrapped
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. milk
1.5 oz. semi-sweet chocolate

Prepare brownie mix according to box directions and cool.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place coconut on baking pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir coconut and cook for another 2-3 minutes until toasted. Watch closely so it doesn't burn.

In a large, microwaveable bowl, add unwrapped caramels, salt, and milk and cook on high for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally (about every 45-60 seconds). Cook until all caramels are melted and smooth.

Add coconut and mix together. Spread over cooled brownies. Refrigerate 4-5 hours or overnight. Remove at least 1 hour from the fridge before cutting. Cut into bars and drizzle with melted semi-sweet chocolate. Let chocolate set and enjoy. store in fridge, but remove 20-30 minutes before serving as the caramel will be hard.
