All About GF Flour Blends

I've finally decided to put all of my go-to resources for GF flour blends all on one page :)

How to Make Your Own Fajita Seasoning Mix

Since pre-packaged fajita seasoning mix contains gluten, I thought that I'd share what homemade mixture I use. (One recipe that specifically asks for this on my blog is the Green Bell Pepper Casserole.)

Mix all ingredients thoroughly:

3 T. chili powder
2 T. cumin
1 T. ground black pepper
1 t. oregano
1 T. salt (optional)
2 t. garlic powder
1 1/2 t. ground red pepper

Makes 1/2 c.

How to Roast Vegetables

Here is a simple picture tutorial of how to roast vegetables, in case you've never done it before. It is very simple, and you basically use whatever veggies are in season. Here, I show some summer vegetables; you can use yellow summer squash, zucchini, bell pepper, carrots, even eggplant. In the winter, you've got white potatoes, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, winter squash like butternut or pumpkin...whatever you would like. No matter what you throw together it always turns out yummy! :)

Easy Veggie Quiche

This recipe is very flexible...It's pretty much a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. That's one thing I love about quiche! :)

Black Bean Mushroom Veggie Burgers

I noticed that I don't have many recipes on this blog for main meals...It's obvious that I like my sweets and baked goods! ;) However, I still thought this was something to be remedied. I've recently been wanting to play around with a veggie burger recipe anyway. Having never really had very many veggie burgers in my lifetime (actually, I think I've only had one, and it was a frozen soy patty--which in my mind, doesn't count), I decided that this would be my next cooking challenge.

Simply Pie.

It's Friday! ...So this weekend, we're having pie :)

Maybe you read the title of this post, and you don't think that the words "simple" and "pie" should be in the same sentence.

Made-from-scratch pie crust. Just the thought used to cause me to grimace. Yet lately, my view on homemade pie crust is changing.
