This year for Thanksgiving I made a gluten free dressing along with regular dressing. The gluten free dressing didn't have a lot of flavor--so I think next year I'll try to find a recipe. I made two gluten free chocolate pies with gluten free crusts. The pies were regular recipes I just subbed gf all purpose baking mix. The first one I made was from November Country Living. It had bittersweet , semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips. It was a very firm pie. The second one was this one: http://wannabechefmysti.blogspot.com/2011/06/chocolate-pie-nuff-said.html .
I used a gf crust and this pie was wonderful-- it shifted in transport so it looked horrible--but tasted like chocolate heaven. :-)
The following recipe my mom always made for family get togethers and Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Just writing that made me miss my mom. I thought maybe this was a family recipe but my aunt said it was not. I'm pretty sure my mom used -Stephenson's Apple Orchard Green Rice recipe. Her recipe is a little different, down below is the original.
This is the original recipe from the restaurant
Green Rice (makes 10 servings)
3 c. cooked rice
1 c. chopped parsley
1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/4 c. chopped green pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
14 1/2oz. can evaporated milk
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 Tb. salt
1/2 tsp. EACH Seasoned salt, pepper
1/4 tsp. Ac'cent
juice and grated rind of 1 lemon
Mix first 5 ingredient in greased 2 Qt. casserole. Blend rest and mix into rice. Sprinkle w/ paprika, bake @ 350 about 45 min. until like a soft custard.
From page 43 of the Stephenson's cook book (1999 printing):
I also made her
Apples grated or chopped (with the peel still on)
mini marshmallows (taste good without too)
pecans- the more the better
whipped cream (my mom used cool whip we use the canned spray it's best to put a little on and add the rest right before eating)
and the last recipe of my mom's is
mix together and enjoy.
(My mom added powdered sugar)
I also make a cheesy green bean casserole --we found a recipe in an old cookbook and changed it.
Cheesey Green Bean Casserole
3-4 cans French green beans
my uncanned condensed soup x 2 (from the LLL cookbook)
4 oz. grated cheese
salt and pepper
Butter a casserole pan added beans
after making the soup stir in cheese and onions, pour over beans and bake 30-45 minutes.
I have a dairy-free daughter and one who likes the following:
Fresh (or frozen) Garlic Green Beans
Slightly steam or stir-fry green beans
add olive oil or butter
couple gloves of minced garlic
This is my sister-in-law making her famous turkey gravy.
