Learning How To Cook

Hi guys-

I have been starting to cook more made from scratch meals. Its only my husband and I and I do a lot of marinated chickens but I am missing side dish ideas. If you guys would post some of your ideas and recipes that would be great.

I am looking for sauce recipes--like garlic herb, or butter herb, parm sauces.

I would love to hear any great main dishes you might have as well.

I am starting to enjoy it and I am open to all sorts of ideas. We are only gluten-free free if that helps. I know this board is filled with some great cooks and people who are very skilled at converting recipes over--I am sadly not one of those people. So please help me!!!!!

Thanks

I make a very easy parmesan/alfredo sauce for my daughter. Melt butter in a pan, add parmesan cheese, heavy cream (we're calorie boosting for her, you could sub milk), garlic powder (or fresh minced) and a dash of pepper. I don't measure (which is unlike me) because it's so easy, I just do it to taste. You can pair this with pasta, pour it over chicken, or you could make a fettucine alfredo with chicken and broccoli. I toss the pasta in the pan so it's well coated with the sauce.

I love http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ for crockpot recipes. The author's daughter has celiac so all (except maybe a handful) are gluten free. There are 366 recipes from 2008, and she continues to post some recipes in 2009. We love the maple dijon chicken.

I will try to think of some other ideas. Do you like eggplant?

check out '30 minute meal' type recipe books, they have a lot of great, easy ideas.

If you can have cream, it's a great sauce builder since it thickens as it heats. Other gluten-free ways to a nice thick sauces include cornstarch or arrowroot powder (definitely for the cornstarch make a 'slurry' first with a little liquid, then mix in with your sauce).

In grad school I started doing mustard chicken with fresh green beans, I would put milk, mustard and some cracked black pepper in a pan, add slightly pounded chicken breast, add the beans when I turned the chicken over, then thicken the sauce at the end (after taking out the chicken & beans) if you like. Can serve with any starch side, I usually did rice.

Have fun exploring!

I know this is really late, but there is a gluten free cooking course offered TONIGHT at our Wegmans! Maybe they will have it again.

We normally buy marinades and salad dressings to do that sort of stuff.

We really need the cooking class!

You can make really easy pan sauces for any sauted meat, in a mix of olive oil and a bit of butter for flavour (I mostly saute thin slices of chicken, or slices of pork tenderloin that I have pounded thin) . Here are a few that I like.

1/2 cup chicken stock (store bought is OK)

lemon juice from 1/2 a lemon

1 Tbsp capers

1 Tbsp cold butter (add to pan, off the heat, once the above ingredients have slightly reduced, about 2-3 minutes tops)

1/4 cup chicken stock

1/4 cup masala wine

1/4 cup whipping cream

Add to hot pan, scrape bits off of bottom and reduce until a bit thicker

1/2 cup chicken stock

2 Tbsp mango chutney

1 Tbsp cold butter (as above)

I would serve any of the above with roasted potatoes (toss in olive oil, s&p and roast at 425F for about 20-30 minutes) and a simple steamed vegetable.

You can do some really simple things to liven up vegetables. I like zucchini, sliced thin, and sauted with garlic then at the end (on a few minutes tops) a squeeze of fresh lemon and some torn leaves of fresh basil.

Asparagus is excellent roasted with olive oil, s&p in a hot oven (425F) for about 5 minutes then tossed with a splash of balsamic vinegar and a shaving of parmesan cheese.

Heavenly. Many vegetables are excellent roasted: cauliflower, broccoli (keep an eye on this though as the end can burn), carrots, parsnips, beets, sweet potatoes, eggplant, zucchini, peppers, brussels sprouts. Just toss them with some olive oil, salt and pepper and they are simple but very good.

I like to do brussels sprouts by slicing them thin (this can be done in the food processor). I start by toasting chopped hazelnuts, remove them from the pan. Add some oil and throw in the brussels sprouts, with some salt and pepper and saute for about 5 minutes or till they don't look raw. Toss the nuts on and a bit of maple syrup and they are ready to eat.

Hope you find some of this helpful.

most traditional sauce recipes are already gluten-free (at least the ones not skimping on time by adding thickeners)

as for main dishes, again, vegetable, meat products, dairy products, they are gluten-free

as for things like bread crumbs -- gluten-free flour works well in many cases, so do corn flake (or other flake cereals), also, a great use for gluten-free bread after its even to dry to toast -- gluten-free bread crumbs

    • FOUND my sugar cookie recipe from way back when....THANK you for reminding me I also found a recipe for choclate sugar cookies, fudge balls, and even a sugar cookie cake recipe in my old binder I am wanting to make again. Here is my old recipe tell me if it works out Sugar Cookies
      75g Almond flour
      1/8 tsp salt
      1/8 tsp baking soda
      30g (2tbsp) maple or lakanto
      2tsp almond milk
      15g (1 1/2tbsp) coconut oil melted (nutiva Butter flavored)
      1 tsp vanilla
      few drops of almond extract helps bring it out
      And sugar topping/icing 1. Mix your liquid ingredient aside from the milk and oil, and heat slightly (this is so the oil will mix in later)
      2. In a separate bowl mix up your dry. Now combine yoru dry and you wet it is going to be a bit dry, now add in your oil and milk this will form d dough ball.
      3. Place your dough ball in a large gallon plastic bag an roll it out in the bag into a sheet (this makes it less messy)
      4. Cut open the bag and using a cookie cutter cut out the cookies, and place on a greased parchment paper, put this in the freezer for 20mins while you preheat your oven.
      5. Preheat your oven to 325F, when your dough is done chilling place it on a cookie sheet in the oven for 10-15mins til desired crispiness. LET cool at least 10 mins before attempting to remove from the sheet. then you can transfer to a cookie rack to cool and crisp up more. You can top these with a bit of sugar or sugar sub while they are cooling right out of the oven or wait to chill completely and decorate with icing.

    • The first study linked above by knitty kitty is indeed legit!  Mexican Conacyt is like our National Science Foundation - a prestigious and heavily peer-reviewed federal funding source.  I react to corn and corn flour but not to tortillas and chips.  I wonder if the processing (which I think includes lyming) de-activates the protein?  I have used corn occasionally in cooking, and tend to treat it like a condiment, not a side, but this has me re-evaluating.     Edited comments:  Second study is in a questionable journal, one that has been widely noted recently to be a "pay to publish" Journal.  However there are still legitimate scientists who publish there. Regarding corn in the US: last summer we drove through Kansas and Iowa on a trip.  Wheat was everywhere!  Towns that were too small to have a gas station had a grain elevator.  Guess what was growing right next to wheat fields, grain processing plants, etc?  That's right - young corn plants.  I'm thinking all those grain storage places, farm equipment, even the soil, is completely saturated with wheat!  I don't know if it's a problem, I just know that my son said "oh my gosh mom you could never live here, there is what everywhere"
