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.

Soup is my favorite food group… okay, I do realize it’s not technically a food group but it is so wonderful it should be!!
I eat soup year round, regardless if it’s a crazy hot summer day, which in Arizona could easily mean 110 degrees out, or a chilly winter day. Love it year round!
One soup I have tried a few times to make gluten free, usually unsuccessful is broccoli cheese soup. I do not know why I have had such rotten luck with it, but I am proud to say… my losing streak with broccoli cheese soup has come to an end… and I owe it all to CGF reader Paula Z for sending me this recipe.
Paula’s recipe is one I could eat my weight in. Rich and creamy. Filing and stratifying. Meaty and full of yummy broccoli. Oh and did I mention cheesy too!! Home run for sure!!
I did find that after this cooled down a bit it got even thicker. Which of course makes for fantastic leftovers… if you have any that is.
Thanks again Paula Z for this awesome recipe… I truly appreciate it and it will be enjoyed often!!
I know that the holidays are coming. What do I think of when I say that? I think Friends Family and Leftovers. Yes, that’s right I said leftovers. I always buy the largest turkey and ham so that I can make sure I have enough to share with my loved ones, but also that I can keep these leftovers and make awesome recipes from it. I also like to make TONS and TONS of tasty side dishes and appetizers so that they get so full and not eat as much of the turkey or ham so that I can keep it for leftover recipes. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
When we enjoy the holiday season we also get to also enjoy the cool weather and that’s the ultimate time to enjoy a nice thick and hearty soup.
I debated on waiting to share this recipe till we are closer to the holidays but I just could not wait. I am so excited about this because this can easily be made with any gluten free ham you want to purchase in your local grocer and not just limited to lefovers.
This chowder will remind you of a clam chowder type of chowder but with ham, cheese and bacon… that works for me!! I am confident you are going to enjoy this awesome chowder as much as I do!! Dang, just talking about this is making me crave it… I am going to go and heat up a bowl right now!! Click here for Recipe….
When I was growing up, having stuffing was such a treat. The smell as it fills the house and the anticipation of the moment of digging in was all that this little girl could handle. My mother may have not of been the best cook, but let me tell you there was a handful of things she made incredibly and stuffing was one of them!! As an adult, I started making this recipe for my friends… sharing with them the family favorite I grew up on. Although before they tried it they were not to eager to do so because they had never heard of a stuffing with apples but once they did actually try it, they were hooked!!
Upon going gluten free after my Celiac diagnosis I was devastated. Thinking I would never get to indulges in this holiday tradition again. The first few years I made it for my friends but never ate a single bite because of the gluten filled ingredients. Now that was pure torture. It was heartbreaking not getting to enjoy my favorite dish of the Thanksgiving or Christmas holidays!!
Now days nothing stops me from enjoying this dish. I use to always make this using bags of stuffing mix but I have learned it’s very easy to do on your own. And the beauty is that it adds only a few extra steps. But as I dig into my stuffing with the holiday meal it’s worth every second.
I hope you enjoy my holiday stuffing or as some people refer to as holiday dressing recipe as much as we do. Maybe it will be a new tradition in your home. Click here for Recipe….
