Gluten Free Lasagna made with Heartland Oven Ready Lasagna

Lasagna is one of my favorite Italian dishes. I was a very happy girl when I found this oven ready lasagna at my local Super Center!

Brown rice lasagna wasn't too bad, but a little chewy for my taste. These lasagna noodles from Heartland have a wonderful texture! If no one told you they were gluten free you would never know. I highly recommend that you give them a try! Thank you Heartland!

Gluten Free Garlic and Herb Bread Sticks

These amazing looking garlic and herb bread sticks are made using my pizza dough recipe. I added in 1 teaspoon of dried Italian herbs with the bread flour and brushed them with extra virgin olive oil and garlic powder when they were done baking. This recipe makes 6-8 good sized bread sticks, depending on how big you want them to be. They are soft and chewy inside, yet light and fluffy too. I hope you give these are try, they are delicious!

Gluten Free Pizza Four Ways

Pizza Pizza Pizza! Who doesn't love pizza? We got a little creative with our pizza this time. Everyone got to choose their favorite toppings. My new favorite is the BBQ chicken pizza. Sounds a little weird I know, but if you haven't tried this one you're missing out! My husbands all-time favorite pizza is the Hawaiian with jalapenos and my son always asks for pepperoni or pepperoni/sausage combo. I doubled my pizza dough recipe since it only makes one large pizza. Have fun creating our own new favorite pizza!

Light And Fluffy Waffles With Raspberry Maple Syrup

Light, fluffy gluten free waffles with a light crispy texture? Oh yeah! This is one of those recipes that I kept working on until I got it just right! The baking mix I put together is perfect for this one. To keep these waffles light and airy, no xanthan gum is used. It just weighs them down and gives them a gummy texture. Gross! I used a more traditional approach to this recipe and separated the eggs and whipped the whites. It isn't necessary but really does improve the texture.

Apple Cinnamon Bundt Cake With Maple Glaze

I love a really good bundt cake! My home was filled with the aroma of apples and cinnamon as this cake was baking, yum! It is very moist and delicious! I used Granny Smith apples in this recipe, they are tart and sweet and add a lot of flavor. The maple glaze adds yet another layer of flavor, but if you're not a fan of maple any glaze will do. You could also add a crumb topping to this cake by using a tube pan with removable sides or a 9x13 cake pan. Either way you can't go wrong!
