Oh, holy cow you guys. I think I might be allergic to dairy (cue sarcastic half-hearted woo’s). I currently am working on eating dairy-free and egg-free (already an allergen I just didn’t take it as seriously as I should’ve) for the next four weeks to test the waters, and we’ve been gluten-free for a couple years now. When thinking of going dairy-free it sounded really daunting, not gonna lie.
This recipe gives you a delicious combination of a quiche and breakfast sandwich all baked into one, and EVERY bite is like that. The cheese creates little puddles of goodness throughout the loaf and if you reheat a slice in an oven, toaster oven, or air fryer, the whole outside becomes a toasty cheesy shell and it’s ah-mazing. However, that is not the end to this beautiful piece of art, it also tastes freshly baked when reheated, like c’mon, how much better can this bread be??
Who doesn’t love a holiday flavored drink? This shake has it all with creamy vanilla ice cream, crushed ginger snaps, and sticky sweet molasses all blended with a bit of bourbon. A truly classic holiday flavor made boozy, and perfect for a night in or to serve at a party.
Sugar cookies are always a fun holiday treat. They are simple, fun to decorate, and an activity you can get the whole family in on. There aren’t many gluten-free (GF) sugar cookie options out there. I scoured the internet and looked for weeks at local stores and all I scrounged up were three options. However, after some digging, it looks like these are the only ones that are readily available year round. So which cookies are worth the buy and which should never make it into the cart?
Now I have never been a big fan of stuffing. I am more of a cranberry girl myself, but boy oh boy does Derek love stuffing. When taking pictures I sort of messed up my mom’s original recipe (or so I thought) and I’ve never seen that man more excited about having to remake something. He loves my mother’s stuffing. So what are you waiting for, don’t you want to know how to make the best stuffing in the world?

It’s time for another installment! I hope you are as excited about this as I am because I love doing this series. Now, I thought this would be perfect for Thanksgiving because at least for us, were the only gluten-free (GF) ones in the family, so having easy substitutes for the host to make (or for me to bring over) makes Thanksgiving that much easier. I finally got all the ones I could find (even after searching on google). However, since there are so few options I will also include an easy recipe to make any homemade gravy GF and you can’t even tell it’s GF!
Okay, so I know I always go on and on about how great all of my mom’s recipes are, but if they weren’t good, would I be putting them on here? This dip is super easy, just a cuppa this and a cuppa that and a pop-a-it into the oven (I tried). This dip is cheesy, and bit onion-y and a whole lotta good. Got a party and don’t know what to bring and you want to be the center of attention? This dip is for you!

The Gluten-Free (GF) Skeptic was originally created to share and test GF recipes and to try GF foods from grocery stores, restaurants, and major brands to report back to you guys what’s worth trying and what’s literal overpriced GF trash. I kept eyeing these mixes everytime we went to Walmart (which has the most GF options in our area surprisingly) and I finally realized no one was gonna review them for me and I need to just do it. Also, this is the cheapest GF Skeptic that has ever skeptic-ed. So here is a detailed review of the good, the bad, and the ugly from the Great Value line of GF mixes.
Pumpkin pie, the quintessential fall dessert that has somehow snuck its way into three holidays and I am certainly not complaining. This was/is a family favorite for us (which almost all in this series are, but this one was made the most often). My mother would make this for holidays, just because, and most importantly my sisters birthday (October babies unite). This recipe is relatively easy compared to the other recipes I’ve read (some pumpkin gymnastics people be tryin’ to pull), and it will be a showstopper, promise.

I’ve been seeing these mixes float around a lot lately, and finally decided to pick them up to give them a taste for myself. I figured I would make this a Gluten-Free (GF) Skeptic review so I could share it with all my fellow GF readers! So if you too have been seeing these everywhere and are on the fence about buying them or unsure if you’ll like it, here is an in-depth review!
You better get ready, because I’m going full-Fall right now. Yesterday it was finally cold enough for us to flip from AC to heat and I made soup (oh the heavens were shining down on me that day)! I’m celebrating while I can though because tomorrow it’s back up to 80°F…but I already broke out the scarves so it looks like our AC bill is about to go up! Did I mention that this soup is the one I made yesterday? This recipe is the most quintessential cold-weather recipe I can think of. It’s delicate and light but still has a beautiful velvety texture. The soup is a bit sweet and overall lightly spiced for a bit of warmth on the tongue. Just click through already, you know you want to make the darn thing!

I have two soup recipes I’m known for and this is one of them. I absolutely cannot restrain myself from getting several cheddar broccoli soup bread bowls from Panera in the fall and winter seasons. However, since going gluten-free, that’s not really an option anymore. This deliciously cheesy and creamy soup is to die for and not too hard to whip up. Plus, there’s like so many vegetables in it, it’s like so super healthy (did you read that in a sarcastic and breathy high-pitched voice?).
Growing up this was one of the meals I never really craved but didn’t hate having either. However, when I went and got my first apartment, moved out, and started to see family less, I called my mom to give me the recipe. This dish means a lot to me and just feels like a big hug from her whenever I make it. I was a little shocked to find out that this recipe is so easy and just gives me more of a reason to want to make it often.
