I’ve mentioned a few times that I love Pamela’s Gluten-free bread mix. Well, I haven’t run into a Pamela mix I don’t like yet. Recently, I haven’t been able to get these large bags at the health food store, so I ordered them online. Guess what? If you like to stock up, you can get three large bags (4lbs) for $44 and no shipping. Now I’m stocked up. Each of these bags makes approximately four loaves of bread. It’s a good idea to slice the loaves up and freeze them so they stay fresh longer. Gluten-free bread doesn’t last long, so eat it all right away or freeze it. It’s much cheaper to buy the big bags than to pay about $8 a bag for a small mix that makes one loaf. You can ORDER HERE.
This isn’t my recipe, but it’s gluten-free, easy to prepare and healthy. It has an excellent flavor and I have to share it with you.
Spanish Chicken and Potato Roast (from the Food Network)
1 1/2 lbs Yukon potatoes, cubed
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 tsp paprika
4 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 red onions, sliced into rings
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
2 lemons (one juiced, one cut into wedges)
Preheat oven to 500. Put the chopped potatoes and garlic in a microwave-safe bowl. Add oil and 1 Tbsp water and stir to coat. Place plastic wrap over bowl and punch a few holes in the top. Microwave 8 minutes to partially cook potatoes.
In another bowl toss chicken with the paprika, lemon juice, parsley, salt, and pepper. In a large casserole dish, place onions and potatoes. Bake 12 minutes. Remove potatoes from oven and flip. Top with chicken. Roast about 12 more minutes or until chicken is cooked through. It took me longer to get the chicken done, so just keep an eye on it. Serve with lemon wedges.
Today is my son’s 2nd birthday! He’s so into Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and I made this Toodles cake with little plastic Mickey figurines as side decorations. For this cake, I used two different mixes, one Betty Crocker Gluten-free Yellow Cake Mix (mixed with a Jello Vanilla Pudding mix) for the ears. For the large circle I used Pamela’s Classic Yellow Cake.
Just use three cake pans. One 9-inch pan and two small round pans like so.
