gf and me’s potato flour tortillas

These gluten free and dairy free tortillas taste like wheat tortillas and won’t go soggy when baked in dishes like enchiladas. They taste great and are easy to make. The recipe below makes 9 – 10 tortillas but you can also mix the dry ingredients together in a large batch and store in a sealed container. When you want a tortilla, combine the dry mix with water at a ration of about 2:1, adding water by the tablespoon if needed. In other words, one cup of dry ingredients and 1/2 cup water will make 4 four-inch tortillas, 1/2 cup dry ingredients and 1/4 cup water will make two!

bbq ginger-lemon chicken – roast chicken is no longer just for Sunday

Ginger-Lemon Chicken. gf and me 2013.

I know, I know, it looks a little odd on its roost (or should I say ‘roast’?), but this chicken is so tender, tasty, and easy to make, it’s sure to become a recipe staple. A gf friendly variation of beer can chicken, once the poultry is prepped and on the grill, you close the lid and walk away!

Stand the chicken on your grill by using the can and drumsticks to make a tripod or use an accessory like the one in the photo that holds the can and stabilizes the bird. These can be found in the BBQ supply section of numerous kitchen stores – and they’re dishwasher safe.
