    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 12/30/2015 - Sweet potato fries are always a hit. In the first version, the sweet potatoes are battered in corn starch and fried, in the second version, they are baked. Take your pick. Either way, they will make a delicious hit at your next gathering.

    Directions:
    Heat the oil to 375F in a deep, heavy-bottomed fryer.

    Heat the oven to 200F.

    Mix the salt, garlic powder, paprika and sugar in a bowl and set aside.

    Whisk the cornstarch and club soda in a mixing bowl. In batches, dip the potatoes in the batter, allow any excess to drip off and hold on a wire rack. Repeat with rest of the potatoes.

    Fry half the potatoes, stirring occasionally until golden brown and crispy, 6 to 8 minutes.

    Sprinkle with the seasoning and hold in the oven on a paper towel-lined baking sheet.

    Repeat until all potatoes are cooked.

    Serve hot.
     

    Version 2: Baked Sweet Potato Fries

    Don't like to fry? Bake them!

    Set the oven to 450F.

    Just throw the cut sweet potatoes into a large bowl.

    Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

    Drizzle lightly with olive oil, just enough to coat.

    Now, mix it all together and place on the cookie sheet.

    Make sure they're all evenly spaced on the cookie sheet.

    Put them in the oven for 15 minutes, undisturbed.

    After 15 minutes, flip them, maintaining space, and cook and extra 10 minutes.

    Serve hot.

    July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day. As such I am sharing this gluten-free fried chicken recipe. Gluten-free fried chicken is not much different than wheat battered fried chicken, it is simply made with gluten-free flour instead of wheat. The nice thing about this particular recipe, is that it can be egg free or dairy free by using eggs instead of buttermilk and vice versa. However, it is not  recommended to be both dairy and egg free.
    For best results use pieces of dark meat. This will make it easier to bake and fry your chicken. Although, if you prefer white meat, it works fine with this recipe too. Although you will need to bake large chicken ...

    Like any casserole, this one is flexible. I've given you a good guideline for correct proportions, but add more or less salmon or tuna; more or less pasta; more or less peas – you get the picture. It will work and be delicious, regardless.
    Lately I've been using canned salmon instead of tuna in this traditional recipe – Costco even carries wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon (boneless) in the can, which boasts 410mg Omega 3s per serving! So this casserole is not only delicious, but it's a deliciously healthy one-dish meal the whole family will enjoy! Obviously, if you have leftover grilled salmon from the night before, it goes without saying (though I'll say...

    Sure, lots of the meals I make are variations on meals that traditionally contain gluten. However, I also make many that just happen to be gluten-free. Here's one of my favorites.
    Grilled pork chops are an old stand-by. Cheap, easy to prepare, and delicious. I serve this version with steamed fresh broccoli and carrots, along with mashed white sweet potatoes. The result is a quick, delicious summertime meal that is easy on the budget and leaves plenty of calories for wine or a nice dessert.
    Ingredients:
    3-4 Pork chops
    12-16 broccoli or broccoli spears (3-4 per chop)
    3-4 white sweet potatoes (cubed)
    ¼ cup butter
    Splash of milk

    This classic rich, hearty, Irish-style lamb stew is a sure-to-please favorite. I like to eat it warmed up after a night in fridge. I like to work my way through a big pot of this stew over several days, feeding whatever guests happen to roll through the door at mealtime.
    Ingredients:
    ½ pound bacon, thick-cut, diced
    2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
    2 pounds carrots, diced
    1 ½ pounds potatoes, diced
    1 large yellow onion
    3 large leeks, white part only, halved, washed and thinly sliced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    3 stalks celery, thinly sliced
    1 cup beef broth
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
