Okay, so I bet regular readers of this blog are asking themselves… is she really putting out yet another recipe for enchiladas??
Yes I am!!
I just adore them. They are so versatile and tasty!!
You can make them pretty much with anything you have leftover in the fridge or freezer. For someone like me who thrives off of making cost effective meals these are the ideal format. I have made them with leftover meats and cheeses and BAM dinner is on the table for just a few dollars!! Need to feed a crowd in a pinch… not only would this be cost effective but I don’t know a single person who doesn’t enjoy enchiladas. You will be a beloved hostess (or host)! Enchiladas are also a great main course to take to a potluck or or church social.
I am eager to hear from you… what is your favorite enchiladas? What is our favorite Mexican food recipes?
Whenever I see ribs on sale it’s all I can do not to load my freezer up on them. I know that for most people ribs are a summer treat. However, for me it is a year round culinary delight!!
The one “problem” with ribs is that when it is just Handsome Husband and me for dinner, we always end up with leftover ribs. I also know so many people who have had a backyard bbq and they over planned the food and had leftover ribs. Worry not… Just toss those ribs into the freezer and in a few weeks or months when you are craving the bbq craving… you can have it again, but with a twist!!
Well today I am going to share with you a yummy idea to do with leftover ribs…. making them into a mashed potato bowl!! I served mine with cooked carrots, but trust me… any veggie you like will be great. The funny thing is… the inspiration for this dinner was something I saw served at a county fair. They served theirs to look like an ice cream sundae, but it was a meat sundae.
I am always trying not to waste delicious leftovers and this is a new and exciting way to make sure one of my favorites is utilized to its fullest potential!!
I am a BBQ loving woman!! One thing I love about ordering barbecue at many different places is the fact that everybody makes their sauce a little differently. BBQ sauce is like snowflakes… there are not two alike. Let’s just all agree BBQ sauce can make or break your favorite rib joint!!
At home, I must admit, I do prefer to buy pre-made BBQ sauce. The convenience is hard to beat. But not all BBQ sauces are gluten free… so making sure the sauce you purchase is safe to eat is always a challenge!!
Today, I am sharing a sauce I made that was pretty easy to make. Now is it as easy as opening a bottle and using as desired… no. However, I have never been able to buy peach BBQ sauce either… and I must admit, it was really fun to make!! So I realize that today’s recipe is not one you might make all the time, however, it is one that you should keep handy for when you get a good deal on peaches and want to make your backyard BBQ a little more special.

Gluten Free Crispy Fried Beef in a Sweet Garlic Sauce
Grab your chopsticks! We have a tasty treat for you today. As you might know, I love Chinese food, and I am always experimenting in the kitchen with it. Ya know, it would just be easier if more people opened Gluten Free Chinese Food Restaurants. But until that happens, I am going to be sharing my Gluten Free Chinese Food recipes with you!! Here is the latest gluten free creation… It is a crispy beef and the sweet garlic sauce is very mild. I wanted to include lots of stir fry veggies. This can be served over white or brown rice. I love white rice but lets face it, brown rice is so much better for us… so every once in awhile I like to make sure my family gets brown rice. It works really well with this main dish. Now there seems to be a lot of ingredients and directions to this recipe, but please don’t let that distract you from making this, it actually is not a difficult dish to make and once you make it once, it will be much easier every time there after. So please give it a try and let me know what you think!!
Tip of the Day!!! If you have any recipes with Fresh Ginger… Buy the Ginger in a nice large piece. When you get it home, peel the ginger with a potato peeler. Then grab a large piece of tin foil and wrap it in there and place in your freezer. That way all you have to do is get a fine grater out when you need it and grate it frozen. Stores for months this way and that makes it a lot more cost effective and tasty!!!
As you may know, I love and miss going to Chinese food restaurants!! This is a favorite recipe of mine now that I cook Chinese food at home. Especially when our local Albertson’s Grocery Store has their Sirloin steaks on buy one get one (sometimes two for free). This recipe makes this a great deal. In fact, we normally stock up and freeze those steaks for future use. However, keep in mind if you don’t have an Albertsons near you another type of meat you can use is beef round steak. If you like beef broccoli you are going to love this Chinese food recipe!!
