3 Gluten-Free Summertime Brunch Ideas that Frankly Rock the House

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

The topic of gluten-intolerance has been in the news a lot lately, and if you’re like me, you know people struggling with celiac’s disease or with some less chronic sensitivities to gluten. Having friends and family struggling with these conditions can make getting together for summer breakfasts and brunches a little awkward. Given that so many traditional breakfast items are loaded with glutens, one is left with either making several different breakfasts to accommodate the various dietary restrictions of one’s guests or, even worse, forcing gluten-sensitive guests to feel left out by showing up with their own breakfasts-for-one.

What a dilemma! Well, I think I’ve got an answer. Or three delectable answers, to be a bit more precise. Read the rest of this entry »

Bacon and Sour Cream Chicken Crockpot: UNPLUGGED

Last week, our readers went crazy for the Bacon and Sour Cream Chicken Crockpot recipe we posted on Recipe4Living.com. Obviously we were curious to what all the fuss was about. Bacon wrapped chicken slow cooked in a sour cream sauce? My stomach got full just thinking about it. But we love our readers so we wanted to try it out ourselves. At the office we were stumped with which editor would be brave enough to  take on this potentially heart clotting recipe at home. As the newbie, I swiftly accepted the challenge.

I decided immediately that I would embrace this recipe for what it was, and of course invite as many twentysomething males over to eat the inevitable leftovers. This recipe has the post-college carnivorous man-child written all over it.

I must admit grocery shopping for this recipe was a dream. Five ingredients, three of which I already had at home? I call that a win. The prep time and mess was also mild. I dirtied a whole three dishes. Another bonus, it was  my first time using a crockpot in a while, so I had forgotten the sheer bliss in cooking something, going out for the day, and coming home to delicious home cooked meal. All of these factors made for an easy. no-fuss, man-friendly Sunday meal.

Watermelon Cake

A few weeks ago my mom told me about this watermelon cake that she heard about from a friend. I figured it was just a cake that looked like a watermelon, but she quickly informed me that it was in fact made out of a watermelon. I thought it seemed impossible for a cake to be made out of watermelon, but when I saw the picture of the cake, I knew it wasn’t. After seeing the cake, I knew I had to give the recipe a try for myself, so my mom and I (but mostly my mom), made it over the weekend. This cake is a prefect healthy dessert option and would make a great 4th of July treat! The best part about this cake; NO baking!
