I made a great dinner tonight! Got the recipe from one of rachel ray's 30 min meals on food network, adapted a bit.

Here it is:

Gluten Free Chicken Cordon Bleu Burger

Surprisingly delicious! Sorry I forgot to take a pic as I was to busy devouring it!
2 slices canadian bacon
1 slice swiss cheese
enough ground meat for a burger (I used ground turkey)
1 hamburger bun (or just a half for open-faced)
seasonings for meat: paprika, onion powder, garlic salt
1-2 tbsp EV olive oil
mustard/mayo if desired
Fry the canadian bacon in hot oil until just starting to crisp, then remove to paper towel.
Knead the meat and seasonings together, and form a ball. Flatten into pan, and cook until no longer pink.
Meanwhile, toast the bun, place the cheese, and meats on top of bun, and either microwave or toast until cheese melts. Add mustard. Eat up!

Been awhile since I posted. Here are my latest concoctions:

Super yummy, very healthy spinach salad!

Completely gluten-free :D

Mandarin orange pieces
Raw mushroom pieces
Shredded mozzarella cheese (I used good ol' string cheese)
Toasted almonds (chopped, then baked @ 350 degrees for 10 minutes)
Bacon or chicken pieces
Kraft Creamy Poppyseed dressing
Directions: Mix, then scarf!

My attempt at Gluten Free "Thin Mint"-like cookies.

Made the cookies using a cake mix by Eating Gluten Free (check out the website at, which is my friend's local business.

The cookies turned out great, very crisp and flavorful. But the coating was another adventure...
