Gluten Free Stuffing for Turkey or Chicken

Gluten Free Stuffing for Turkey or Chicken

This stuffing based on an old family recipe passed down from my Great Grandmother. We grew up calling it "dressing" instead of "stuffing". I've also changed the recipe slightly over the years by including apple and cranberries. Recently I've begun to make it gluten free and it tastes just as good as the regular version. The recipe has been taste-approved by my two non-gluten-free kids. Ingredients 1 Loaf EnerG White Rice Loaf (Gluten free) 1 tbsp olive oil, dairy free butter or butter. Continue reading

While I was working as a counsellor at the Bob Rumball Centre for the Deaf, I would get together for dinner with a couple of fellow employees who happened to be married. They made the best apple crisp I'd ever tasted and they shared their secret ingredient with me. For the record, I usually double Continue reading
