Necessity really is the mother of invention. Geoff and I were invited to dinner the other day. The host was preparing enchiladas (OMG they were soooo good!). Thinking I could whip up a batch of our potato flour tortillas, I offered to bring some. Seemed like a great idea at the time, but when I went to make them – and of course I left it to the last minute – I didn’t have all the ingredients, so I improvised. Am I ever glad I did! These gluten free tortillas made with black beans may not be the prettiest, but they taste great, roll out well, stay soft, and don’t turn to mush in baked dishes. Out host sent us home with some left overs and these were still fantastic three days later! We haven’t tried them as a wrap yet, but I’m sure they would be perfect.

This meal is on the table in under thirty minutes, but it sure doesn’t look that way! And all that’s required are some chicken breasts, an orange, a few odds ‘n ends, and some spices. The recipe is versatile too – feel like an Asian influence – add more gf soy sauce, ginger, and peppers. Looking for something fresh and fruity, cut back on the spices and let the orange shine through. Truly easy peasy! (Scroll down for the recipe.)

Made in the microwave, this gluten free (and dairy free) sponge cake is airy and not too sweet. And with a double hit of almond, it tastes like angel food cake – which is a bit of an addiction of mine. This cake is perfect for those times when you just want a quick treat (read: don’t want to make an entire cake because you know you’ll end up eating the whole thing after everyone else goes to bed!) The problem is that it’s waayyy too easy to make another one, and … well … maybe just one more ….

For some reason, gluten free breakfasts seem to be hard to come by. Until Geoff was diagnosed with celiac disease, I had no idea how many breakfast foods contain gluten! His go-to breakfast is a home blend of different gf cereals but even this got a little boring after a while. In an attempt to mix things up a bit, we came came up with this recipe for gluten free breakfast tarts. Kind of like a gf mini-quiche, they use gluten free pancake mix to help them puff up nice and fluffy and to create their own light, cake-like pastry crust. Good hot or cold, they are a bit of a lifesaver on busy mornings – just make extra the first day and pull them out of the fridge as needed! They are also incredibly versatile. By adding different fillings, you can continually create new savoury flavours!

Oh yeah, these can also be made without power tools 😉
