Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

So here is another attempt at converting a old recipe to gluten-free...classic chocolate chip cookies. We have had this recipe in our family for a long time, but haven't made them in awhile.  
As far as I can tell (and remember), they don't taste any different and are maybe even a little better. Of course, I guess it depends on what kind of gfree flour you use that determines taste and consistency. Anyways...on to the recipe!  

-6 Tbsp brown sugar
-6 Tbsp white sugar
-1/2 tsp vanilla
-1/4 tsp water
-1 egg
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-1/2 C shortening
-1 C (6 oz) chocolate chips
-1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour (Once again, I used Bob's Red Mill)

Beat shortening, sugars, vanilla, water and egg until light and fluffy.

Mix flour, soda and salt. 
Blend into shortening mixture.

Stir in chocolate chips...

Try to make them small when you put them on the cookie sheets. These look small, but the cookies ended up being too big and didn't turn out good. 

Bake at 375 for 9-10 minutes. Watch them close b/c they might be done before time is up.

Here's what happens when you make the cookie dough rounds too big...They still taste good, but aren't very nice to look at. :)

These were a little bit smaller than the first ones, but still too big.

When I was putting these on the pan, I thought they looked way too small but they turned out perfect! They spread out so much in the oven!

I'm glad these turned out good, well the last couple of pans anyways! That's what happens with baking though...totally trial and error!
The recipe is supposed to yield 50 cookies, if you make them small that is. I ended up with 30 b/c of the first pan of HUMONGOUS cookies. =) Oh well, they still tasted good and that's all that matters!

Gluten Free Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza Casserole

I'm so excited about my new blog "look"! I hope you all like it as much as I do! :)
I can think of no better way to welcome the new change than with an awesome recipe. This casserole is so quick and easy it's sure to be a hit!  This is another of Marshal's Great Aunt Jean's recipes. Once again, I hope I did it justice. 

Here is what you need: -1 lb sausage -12 in gluten free wide noodles, cook as directed (side note coming) -2 14 oz jars gluten free pizza sauce -2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese -6 oz sliced pepperoni
Prego's Pizza Sauce is clearly labeled gluten free on the back of the jar. 

We have used this pepperoni a couple of times so far with making our own pizzas, and we love it! 

I have used De Boles pasta in the past and loved it and this time was no exception!  Side note: The recipe calls for you to cook the pasta before putting it in the casserole dish to bake. As you can see from the picture, this pasta was ready to go in the oven, no boiling require…

Pie Five Pizza Co. Restaurant Review

Since we have moved back to Nashville (yay!!), we have had the opportunity to eat out more than we used to. There are a few places that we feel safe eating at, and Pie Five was just added to that list.

I have to admit, I was skeptical at first about how (or if) the employees would be trained about cross contamination. The menu does have a disclaimer about the company not being able to guarantee cross contamination, which I was a little leery of since I seem to be pretty sensitive when things are made in cross-contaminated areas. 
Well, let me tell you...this company exceeded my expectations. 
First, let me explain how Pie Five works. It's kinda set up  like Subway. You walk up, place your order, tell them what toppings you want on your personal size pizza, and they put it in the oven. You keep walking down to checkout where you get your drink and by that time, your pizza is ready! It's really a pretty cool system. 
So, some things I noticed:
1) When I ordered, as soon a…

Our Gluten Free Experience In Jamaica

For our honeymoon, we traveled to Negril, Jamaica. We stayed at the Couples Resort in Negril.  For traveling, I packed an assortment of Vans Bars and some Glutino Lemon Bars. 
We arrived late Sunday afternoon at the resort and we were starving. We ate at the Heliconia Restaurant for the first time. 

I ordered grilled chicken with some kind of salsa topping with french fries. It was very good. Definitely hit the spot.

Marshal had the steak with a really great sauce (that I can't remember the name of right now) with french fries. 
After we talked to our waitress about how we don't eat bread or anything with gluten (which we're not sure if she understood or not), the chef came out and talked to us to tell us what we could have off the menu. My chicken was supposed to come with a side of creamed potatoes, but those contained flour so he made me french fries instead. 
We would eat at this restaurant a couple more times for lunch and dinner during the week. 

Breakfast everyday was at t…
