Thanks Marge Ernest for this great recipe and for the lovely luncheon you prepared for us a bit ago.  Marge served this with tomato aspic and relishes.  I am so thankful for the lovely day we shared together, and even though it may have been years ago, it still remains fondly in my memory.

Sharing a memorable day,

Fluffy Chicken and Rice

This recipe is one of my favorites from Mom Cornish.  I always enjoyed being in the kitchen with her and watching her cook.  She always made preparing meals look so effortless!  Such fond memories!!

FLUFFY CHICKEN AND RICE

1 can of cream of chicken soup (I use this GF recipe.)
1 soup can of milk
3/4 cup uncooked regular rice
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
(I use  GF Clover Valley Onion Soup Mix found at Dollar General.)
2 chicken breasts, halved

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix canned soup and milk, reserve 1/2 cup of mixture.  Mix remaining soup mixture, rice and half of onion soup mix.  Pour into ungreased baking dish.  Place chiken on top.  Pour reserved soup mixture over chicken.  Sprinkle with remaining dry soup mix.  Cover and bake 1 hour, and then 15 minutes longer uncovered.

I have been hungering for Mom Cornish’s fluffy chicken and rice, so I am happy to have figured out how to make it gluten-free!

Have a Yummy day,

Dad’s Favorite Fish Fillets

Dad’s Favorite Fish

 Our daughter used to make this for her Dad and he just loved it!

 Being far from her, she in New York and we in Arizona, we sure do miss her wonderful cooking.   She is so adventurous and really enjoys trying new recipes. This one is certainly a keeper.

6 Fish Fillets
6 Slices of Bacon, partially cooked
6 oz. can of tiny shrimp (I prefer frozen)
6 tomato slices (or 9 cherry tomatoes, sliced)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tsp. chopped chives

Butter Sauce:
3 tbs. butter, melted
1 tbs. lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
1/2 tsp. salt

In a small bowl, combine all sauce ingredients; set aside.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Arrange fillets in an 11″ x 7″ baking dish.  Place bacon slices on top of fillets, top with heaping teaspoon of shrimp.  Spoon half of butter sauce on fish.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Place tomato slices on fillets and sprinkle with cheese.  Pour remaining sauce over fillets and bake for 10-15 minutes more or until the cheese melts.  Sprinkle with chopped chives.

Have a yummy day,

Peppermint Swirl Afghan

I thought that this crocheted Peppermint Swirl Afghan was just beautiful. My decorating theme this year is Gingerbread, and I thought this would fit in so well. I did find the directions on Ravelry, costing $5.99.  In searching I did find instructions that were free. You can download the PDF instructions below.  Enjoy!

National Brownie Day

Each year on December 8, brownie lovers across the nation celebrate National Brownie Day.

 Brownies were created in the United States at the end of the 19th century.  A cross between a cookie and a cake, they soon became very popular across the country.  This is my very favorite gluten-free brownie recipe.  

Gluten-Free Chocolate-Peanut Butter Brownies

 

Sweet rice flour for dusting pan
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into large chunks
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/3 cup oat flour
1/3 cup sweet rice flour
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup peanut butter, heated in microwave 30 seconds to soften

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8-inch square baking pan with oil.  Dust with sweet rice flour.
  2. Set a large pot of water over medium heat and bring to a gentle boil.  Place a metal bowl on top of it.  Place butter and chocolate in metal bowl.  Cook, stirring with a rubber spatuala, until melted.  Remove bowl from heat.  Let cool to room temperature.
  3. Sift oat four, sweet rice flour and xanthan gum together into a large bowl.  Stir in baking powder and salt.
  4. Whisk sugar into chocolate mixture.  Whisk in eggs and vanilla.  Stir in dry ingredients until mixture is just combined.
  5. Pour batter into prepared pan.  Dollop peanut butter onto tip of batter.  Gently swirl peanut butter into batter with a spoon.  Smooth top of batter.  Bake 25 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the middle of the pan comes out clean.  Let cool completely before slicing into 16 squares.  Serves 16

This recipe is from relishmag.com/glutenfree.  It can also be found along with many other gluten-free recipes on the blog, glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com.  The baking time did take a little longer than 25 minutes.  Also I made my own oat flour by grinding whole oats in a coffee grinder.  This recipe is absolutely delicious and could not tell that is was gluten-free.  Yumm!

Have a delicious day,
