1 box philidephia cream cheese creamed with approx. 1 tbsp old el pasa taco mix mixed in (until light orange)

next a layer of cut up lettuce (make sure really dry)

next a layer of cut up tomatoes

a few finely chopped green onions

a layer of grated cheddar cheese on top (i used quite a bit)

this is so good you won't be able to stop eating it! i just made it on the weekend for friends and it was gone fast!

I have never found gluten free imitation crab, where did you get it? whats the name?? I would love to be able to have that again, soooo many dips I used to make with it, so much more inexpensive than real crab meat. I know real crab would taste better, but I cant afford that at every family get together.

I've tossed the package out... but next time I go to that store I will check it out for you :)

2 cups (1 8-ounce bag of Mi-Del Arrowroot Cookies) - finely ground

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 stick of unsalted butter - melted

non-stick cooking spray (I use an olive oil spray)


2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, softened (Philadelphia Cream Cheese is fine)

3 large eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

1 pint Daisy sour cream

Dash of vanilla extract (McCormicks brand)

Optional: zest of 1 lemon

Makes 6-8 servings

Preheat oven to 325. For the crust, combine cookie crumbs, cinnamon and butter with a fork till moistened. Lightly coat bottom and sides of 8 inch pan with non-stick spray. Put the crumbs into the pan and pat them into the sides (about 1 inch up the side) & bottom of the pan. Refrigerate for 5 minutes

For the filling, beat cream cheese till smoth. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well. Gradually add sugar, beating till creamy. Add sour cream & (optional lemon zest) and vanilla. Pour filling into crust-lined pan.

Set the pan into a larger pan that is filled with water so that the water rises about halfway up the exterior of the cheesecake pan. Bake 45 minutes. Then turn oven off and let sit in the oven for an hour. Cheesecake should be jiggly. Remove from the water pan; cool 30 minutes, then refrigerate 4 hours

I thought it would be fun to share each other's favorite recipes, so we can try out some proven winners! Plus, I see a lot of newbies that are stumped on what they can eat.....maybe this could help them out! I'll start!

I've got a couple really good ones:

1. This one is really easy and is great for a Wednesday night dinner:

Oven Fried Chicken

8 boneless skinless thighs

2 tbs paprika

2 cups rice flour

2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 cup butter or marg.

Preheat your oven to 425*

Mix all ingredients except for the chicken and the butter in a ziplock freezer bag. Put butter in a 9x13 pan and stick in the oven just long enough to melt the butter. Then shake the chicken around in the bag and place in the pan. Bake at 425* for 20 minutes. Turn the chicken over and bake for another 20 at 425*

2. This one is more for a special occation, but if you can find some good tails it's really worth it! The measurements are not as exact either, since hubby and I made this one up as we went.

Coconut Lobster

4 fresh lobster tails

2 eggs

1/2 cup to 1 cup of rice flour

1/2 cup to 1 cup milk

1.5 cups of coconut

2 tbs paprika

2 tsp salt

pepper to taste

marmalaide jelly

Preheat oven to 350* Preheat Deep Fryer to 350*

Place lobster on a baking sheet and bake at 350* for a half hour to 45 minutes (until 1/2 cooked and will come out of shells fairly easily)

While lobster is cooking make a batter with the eggs, rice flour, and milk. It should be a thick consistancy so adjust the proportions if you need to.

Then mix the coconut, paprika, salt and pepper on a seperate plate.

When lobster comes out, cut the meat out of the shell. Dip them in the batter and then roll them in the coconut mixture. Deep fry until lobster is fully cooked and coconut batter is golden brown.

Serve with marmalaide jelly on the side.

Ok, your turn!

I have a few favorites.

Not sure what to call it, but I use spaghetti squash a lot instead of pasta, and this is the recipe I use.

2 sweet onions

2lbs ground meat of choice

1 large spaghetti squash

3 cloves garlic

2 jars spaghetti sauce

I bake the spaghetti squash for 45 min to an hour, til soft, although you can steam it too, I just don't have a steamer. Meanwhile, saute meat, then pour out juice and saute onions and garlic (chopped) in same pan, they pick up a nice flavor. I put the sauce in with the onions and garlic and add the meat back in in a big pan, to heat it all up, then scrape all the squash out (it comes out in strings, just like spaghetti) and stir everything together, you have dinner!

Someone suggested on the board baking chicken breast in salsa, it's really good.

We also like burger patties with cheese on top and sauteed onions and baked sweet potatoes on the side.

My favorite gluten-free recipe has to be Herbed Bread Stuffing. I found this recipe on a website last year right after my diagnosis. It is so simple and tastes alot like my mom's. It helped to make my first Gluten Free Thanksgiving Dinner a wonderful experience.

Herbed Bread Stuffing


2 Boxes (12 waffles)of Van's plain gluten-free frozen waffles

2 to 3 medium onions chopped

3 celery ribs, thinly sliced crosswise

1 1/2 tsp Herbs de Province

1/2 tsp dried sage

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)

1 1/2 cups gluten-free chicken stock

Kosher salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Toast waffles until crispy (not burned), let cool and then cut into 1/2 in cubes. Set aside.

Cook onion,celery, and herbs in butter over medium-low heat until soft (about 10 min).

In a large baking dish, toss together the waffle cubes, vegtables, and stock. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Bake for 20 min or until heated through.


I like to add about 2/3 cups dried cranberries, and pecans.
