finished.jpgHey foodie friends! This recipe is from my long time friend Bob Ardolino. I remember when his wife was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. We had no idea what gluten free cooking was all about. 

We were so worried about what she would not be able to eat, we lost focus for a bit on all the great things that are delicious and gluten free

Over the years Bob has managed to come up with tons of delicious, gluten free recipes to make for Michele. Yes, Michele and I are very luck women. Our husbands love to cook for us! 

Thanks for sharing this with us Bob. Keep your pictures coming!
easypizza-after.jpgHey foodie friends! I'm looking for some input from you all. 

I recently went out to eat at a place I enjoy very much. I had a great meal. The service was great. My experience was wonderful!

The reason I was compelled to post was the woman at the next table who was trying to order and receive a gluten free meal. The kind server did not know what gluten free is and kept bringing food that had to be sent back because it had ingredients containing gluten. I thought WOW, anyone who owns, cooks at or serves food in a restaurant needs to be aware of the importance of requests for gluten free food! Food allergies in general really. 
diane-plated.jpgHey foodie friends! This is a great dish if you're in the mood for a shrimp dish with a little kick to it. 

If you're not a fan of the heat, it's also delicious without the cayenne pepper

Simple saute technique and so yummy! Rather than reinventing the wheel, I'll refer you to my shrimp scampi recipe for the basics.

Most Glens Falls home improvement stores that I have visited sell wood chips if they sell grills. There is hickory, applewood, Jack Daniels wood barrel chips and many more to choose from. 

Smoked meats, veggies and fish are easy to do with a smoker box . This chicken was so crispy on the outside and still juicy on the inside, it really was some of the best 
chicken I've had.

My cooking experience started out of necessity, and with lots of successes and not so successful gourmet delights, I learned to be a little creative with some foods and found things that stay consistently on my list. Spending time in the kitchen is therapy for me and entertaining to share the successes. I look forward to sharing some of my creativity with everyone.
