    Celiac.com 11/20/2013 - Every holiday season, I field questions about the best way to map mashed potatoes. Which method is best? Which recipe?

    This is the simplest, easiest recipe for excellent mashed potatoes, for the holidays or any time.

    3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
    2 teaspoons salt, divided
    ⅓ cup butter
    ⅓ cup cream
    2-3 ounces Greek-style yogurt
    ½ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

    Directions:
    Peel potatoes, and cut into 1-inch pieces. Bring potatoes, 1 tsp. salt, and cold water to cover to a boil in a large pot over medium-high heat.

    Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 15 to 20 minutes until fork-tender; drain.

    Return potatoes to pot. Cook on medium until water evaporates.

    Add butter, next 3 ingredients, and remaining 1 tsp. salt.

    Cook 1 to 2 minutes until butter melts and the liquid boils.

    Mix and mash until smooth. Remove from heat.

    Mix as needed to achieve desired smoothness. Serve immediately.

    Adams has given me some wonderful starting points for recipes, but I wish I wouldn't have to tweak all of them. He uses a lot of dairy and refined sugar - thanks to celiac I have developed an intolerance to both (as well as soy). So I'm constantly trying to figure out an alternative for the butter, cream, milk, yogurt, etc...

    3 pound head of cabbage
    2 green peppers chopped
    1 large onion chopped
    2 cups sugar
    Bring to a boil:
    ½ cup vegetable oil
    1 cup gluten-free cider vinegar
    2 teaspoons salt
    2-3 teaspoons celery salt
    Cool, and pour over cabbage mixture and refrigerate. The longer it stands the better it is.

    The best side dishes are those that neatly bring together a few simple ingredients and pack an unexpected flavor. The sweet herbs in this dish compliment the tangy mustard and offer a bright melody of flavor that will have your guests wondering with delight over the pleasantly zingy flavors.
    You could substitute dried herbs for their fresh counterpart, especially if they’re already in your pantry. Toss in about half of the listed measurement with the olive oil, mustard and garlic.
    Ingredients:
    2 pounds cauliflower, 1-2 heads
    3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    1 tablespoon fresh chopped tarragon
    1 ½ teaspoons fresh chopped thyme
    2 tablespoons ol...

    When I was growing up, pot roast was one of the most favorite things my mom made. I fondly remember many a Sunday when I came home to the smell of pot roast cooking in the oven, and counted the minutes until dinner hit the table.
    These days, with time being tight, I rarely get a chance to make pot roast. This recipe uses a slow cooker to make a delicious, moist and juicy pot roast with carrots, onion and potatoes. Even better, it is easy to prepare, and makes its own gravy.
    This recipe will make 8-10 servings, depending on how hungry your eaters are.
    Ingredients:
    4 pounds chuck roast
    salt and pepper to taste
    5 tablespoons dry onion...

    I've been on a bit of a southern food kick lately, making things like fried catfish, blackened snapper, and the like. This recipe for red beans and rice makes for a nice meal on its own, or in combination with any of your southern favorites. It goes great with your favorite gluten-free cornbread.
    Ingredients:
    6 cups gluten-free chicken stock 4 cups water ¼ cup white wine 4 cups cooked white rice 1 pound dried red beans, rinsed and sorted 1 pound smoked ham hocks ½ pound smoked sausage, split lengthwise and cut in 1-inch pieces ¼ cup chopped ham 3 tablespoons bacon grease 1½ cups chopped yellow onions 1 cup chopped celery ¾ cup chopped red ...
