What Are You Cooking For Easter?

Well I just found a shrimp ring at whole foods for $8.99 for a 16oz one....tossing the questionable sauce. Does anyone know of any Cocktail sauce thats gluten, corn, and xantham gum free? I found Trader Joe's but it has xantham gum...did not make me puke oddly when  I tried a bit but I want to play it safe. So looks like we are having shrimp with our Easter if I can track down some sauce.

PS Christopher Bean Coffee just put a Easter sell on coffee. Stocking up on flavored ones myself.

Shrimp is so good.  I have not had it with sauce though since going gluten-free.  I wonder if we'd have to make our own sauce with a ketchup that is safe and hopefully most horseradishes would be safe, but I've never looked at the ingredients in it before. I always assume it's just pure ground horseradish, but now I never assume anything anymore. 

I just got my Christopher Bean coffees a few days ago. :) I tried the Amaretto Biscotti one and really liked it.  It was very strong in that apricot almond sort of way, but that was kind of what I was craving, so I really enjoyed it.  I tried the chocolate glazed donut one, but didn't really love it.  I don't hate it, but probably won't buy it again unless I develop a taste for it by the time i finish the bag, hah!  I did taste some chocolate, but it reminded me more of an actual strong chocolate or chocolate liqueur or something. I don't know.  Yesterday I made a cup and I mixed the chocolate glazed donut and the amaretto biscotti together. Not bad.  I also got a trial size of the Jamaica Me Crazy and also the Mistletoe Mocha, but haven't tried those yet.  Maybe today.  It's rainy and cold and damp here and some hot coffee will hit the spot.  I love that Christopher Bean offers decaf.

Yeah the doughnut one required quite a bit of sweetener, and while there was the doughnut flavor...you sorta had to let it sit in your mouth for while and think about it it was a ending to the cupping notes but present....EASTER sale right now with $2 off each bag with them.

I think I tracked down a corn free and xantham gum free cocktail sauce, but more sodium and sugar then I would like. >.> I did find a good siracha mayo I am thinking of getting from JUST condiments.

Easter update, my mother is coming over tomorrow so we can fix the deviled eggs and make the lemon ricotta scones together for a Easter lunch after church on Sunday. I have changed the menu up so, we are using a riced broccoli with sauteed onions cooked in mushroom broth and served over miracle rice >.> cutting corners lol. And we opted for ham steaks that are gluten-free from our local HEB I will sear and cook in a cast iron skillet so their will be less leftovers then a whole ham, and that shrimp ring, we are dropping the beans and the whole family is doing low carb (both parents are diabetic) I and my rolls are also going to be done.....I am debating if I want to do myself some salmon since the ham will not agree with me.

Constant set backs with the broccoli dish led to a epic new dish. Sold out of mushroom broth, my onion was bad so improvised 2cups vegetable broth, 1tbsp onion powder, 1 tbsp coconut amino, 2tbsp butter flavored coconut oil, 2tsp liquid smoke cooked the riced broccoli in it put over miracle rice and topped with cheddar. ....could have used diced ham or bacon on it for perfection but works and taste good. 
I then served up with everything else have a picture...note rolls were in the oven.

Hi AS,

Would you be willing to share your strawberry dessert recipe?  I'm still trying to figure out what to make.  ?

Sorry, I didn't see this until today.  I will share it so you have it for future functions

1 Tub of Frozen Strawberries

1 small container of cool whip (or whipping cream if you prefer to make your own)

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 Large Box Strawberry Jello

Defrost Strawberries and separate juice from the berries.   Make Jello with the 2 cups hot water as instructed on the box, but use the juice plus whatever cold water you need to make the 2 cups cold water needed.    Let jello set up.    Once jello is set up spoon it out and into a bowl add cool whip and nuts and fold it all together.   Refrigerate an hour before serving.

That all looks delicious.  Ever since my stomach issues, both broccoli and cauliflower bloat me, but I am hoping once my stomach heals more maybe it will get better.  I miss them both as side veggies and in cooking with them too.  I had really liked spaghetti sauce on cauliflower.  I never thought of ricing broccoli.  I bet it was really good. 

We ended up doing the Hormel Cured 81 Spiral Ham that they emailed and verified was gluten-free.  It was so good, very tender and moist.  And made scalloped potatoes (used white rice flour to thicken the sauce), asparagus, and then a homemade, crustless cheesecake for dessert (with cherries on top, I got a bag of frozen ones and thawed them out).  We made deviled eggs too.  Everything was delicious, but something bloated me awful, and on and off I got a very mild stomach ache here or there.  Then stupid me ate leftovers Monday night for dinner.  There should have been no gluten in anything (and with gluten my stomach gets much worse pain and I also tend to lose a few pounds if I accidentally eat any), so I don't think it was a gluten issue.  But something didn't agree with me. We made the cheesecake for New Year and I was okay, so I don't think it was that. Unless just fiber from the cherries, onions, and asparagus. I have no idea, but it was annoying. I have been taking iron again too and that sometimes bothers my stomach.  I have no idea what the culprit was, or perhaps it was a combination of things. 

I hope everyone had a nice holiday.

Sounds yummy.  I love nuts added to things.

Thank you!  That sounds delicious and like something my kids would really like!

I ended up making chocolate cupcakes.  I frosted half with vanilla and half with chocolate frosting and decorated each one differently.  They looked so pretty and all got eaten.
