Gluten Free Baked Beans in a Crock Pot

I think every area of North America, or maybe every family in North America, has a different way to cook baked beans. When I was growing up in Canada, “traditional” baked beans had no thick and tangy tomato sauce like the canned beans we occasionally buy now. They were soft, warm and sweet. Continue reading

Gluten Free Cheese Grits

So, I might have mentioned, there are a few different eating needs and tastes in our home. Out of the 6 of us, we have three gluten free, one coconut allergic, one almond allergic, one vegetarian for health reasons, one with an intolerance to most raw vegetables, one legume allergic, almost forgot the citrus allergy, and a ten year old that wants to eat “normal food” and a three year old that wants to live on marshmallows and cornflakes. (I personally will usually avoid grains, but will make them for the rest of the family and eat them when they’re cheese grits. Two of us are actually lactose intolerant, but mildly enough that Lactaid pills work well.) Making sure everyone gets something to eat isn’t the problem. It’s making sure everyone eats real food every day, because everyone will eat microwave s’mores or cookies or Glutino chocolate pretzels or grab themselves some chips and salsa. Continue reading
