    (Note: this recipe would normally use 16 frozen Pepperidge Farms pastry sheets which DO CONTAIN GLUTEN, so you need to find a gluten-free alternative for this, or simply skip this step in the recipe).

    Ingredients:
    8 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    4 cups chopped fresh spinach (or 1 package frozen spinach, drained)
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    4 ounces cream cheese (same as ½ block)
    ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
    ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
    1 egg yolk, slightly beaten
    1 tablespoon gluten-free flour or gluten-free baking mix

    Directions:
    Beat the chicken breasts into thin cutlets and flatten. If chicken breasts are somewhat thick, use a good knife and cut the chicken breast in half, forming a pocket. Be careful not to cut the chicken breast in half. You will end up being able to open the chicken breast like opening a book... so youll end up with a very large, but thin chicken breast. Do this for each chicken breast & set aside.

    Sauté spinach & onion in oil until onions are tender & translucent. Remove from heat. Toss in all cheeses, egg, and gluten-free flour into pan and stir well.

    Put about an ice cream scoop size dollop of spinach/chicken/gluten-free flour mixture on each chicken breast and spread somewhat thin. Then roll each chicken breast into a roll that resembles a pastry roll.

    If you have a gluten-free pastry alternative, you will then wrap each chicken roll up in the gluten-free pastry, tucking the sides/ends under. Continue to wrap the remaining chicken breasts. Butter your casserole dish & line up the chicken roll ups in the pan, seam side down.

    Bake at 350F degrees for 40 minutes. These can be made a day or two ahead of time, then just pop in the oven before your guests arrive (If you skip the step with the pastry sheets, you can try securing the chicken roll ups with toothpicks, and then remove them prior to serving).

    2 lbs. chicken breast
    1 cup corn meal
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon garlic salt
    Cut chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Put other ingredients into a Ziploc bag, seal, and shake to mix. Drop a couple of pieces of the chicken into the corn meal mixture, seal the bag, and shake to coat. Remove to plate. Repeat until all of the chicken is coated. These can be fried in a deep fryer, in a skillet, or sprayed with PAM and baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

    Cooking with booze is one of the great culinary rites of the holiday season. Apples sauteed with butter, sugar, and cinnamon and polished off with a splash of bourbon, rum, or liqueur are one of the easiest, tastiest gluten-free holidays deserts to make.
    Start by finding yourself some good, crisp, tart apples. I prefer Granny Smiths, Braeburns, Galas, or Pippins, as their tartness combines well with the sweetness of the sauce. But, I've had success with Golden Delicious and Jonathans, as well.  Remember, the alcohol boils off during cooking, so this desert treat is safe for kids. I recommend serving these delicious treats with a big helping of vanilla ice cream. This particular recipe makes enough apples to serve about a dozen people.
    Ingredients:
    1/2 stick of salted butter
    12 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into wedges
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 tablespoons cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    1/2 cup bourbon, dark rum, or liqueur such as Amaretto, Frangelico, or Grand Marnier

    Preparation:
    Wash, core and peel apples.
    Slice apples into 1/2 to 1/4-inch wedges
    Soak apples in booze for 30 minutes. Pour off booze, reserving 1/2 cup.
    In a medium bowl, mix sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg, if desired.
    Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat.
    Add apples and cook slowly, allowing them to brown slightly.
    When apples have softened and browned, add sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix well.
    Pour in vanilla and just enough booze to coat the apples, up to 1/2 cup.
    Stir well and heat until apple mixture is juicy and the juice boils.
    Reduce heat to low and simmer about 10-20 minutes until apples are tender, and most of the liquid evaporates. Stir as needed to avoid sticking and burning.
    Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

    I am one of those people who has been perfectly okay making various kinds of mashed potatoes, and even sweet potatoes, but has been a bit skittish regarding the parsnip.
    Unfamiliarity and fear of the unknown were likely driving factors. Then I discovered this simple way to incorporate parsnips into mashed potatoes, and the result is a big smile. This recipe makes a nice introduction to the parsnip.
    Ingredients:
    1½ pounds parsnips 1½ pounds Yukon gold potatoes 4½ cups water 2 tablespoons butter 1 tablespoon sour cream 1 tablespoons chopped parsley 1 tablespoons chopped chives 2 teaspoons Kosher salt â…› teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Directions:
    Peel parsnips. Cut them crosswise into ½-inch rounds. If you get parsnips with a tough, fibrous core, then cut the parsnips in quarters lengthwise and cut out the tough core.
    Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1 to 1½-inch chunks.
    Place into a medium saucepan, cover with water, add two teaspoons of salt. Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat, cover and let cook for 10 minutes, until a fork can pierce easily. Drain and return the parsnips and potatoes to the warm pan. Cover and let steam in the heat of the pan for 10 minutes.
    Mash the parsnips and potatoes lightly with a potato masher.
    Careful not to over mash!
    Add butter and sour cream and mash some more. Stir in the chopped parsley and chives.
    Add black pepper and more salt to taste.
