  10. Hi Linda and other GF friends,
    I invented a recipe that you all might like – it is a GF pizza/Italian sandwich/cassarole – just good food, and Italian is not my favorite as I prefer Asian and Indian food!
    Here is the gist of it: Cook GF rice noodles and put in bottom of baking dish with olive oil. Saute onions and garlic in olive oil, then add ground meat of your choice (I used ground turkey thigh), then add pizza sauce or cooked tomatoes with lots of Italian seasoning and some cayenne pepper. Layer the meat and sauce over the noodles, then parmesan cheese, then a thick layer of sliced mozzerella cheese, and bake. Serve with banana peppers or jalepeno.
    The orginial Italian dish that I got the inspiration uses Italian bread on bottom and top of a pattie made 1/2 beef, 1/2 seasoned pork sausage. My boss brought it from a hole-in-the wall restaurant and it smelled so good! I knew that GF bread would be mush if I used it.

  11. Thank you for including my chocolate orange cupcakes in the highlights from last week Linda. You’ve been getting some great chocolate recipes. It may take awhile to try them all, but I do love chocolate.

  12. Thanks for highlighting my Truffles!
    Sorry I didn’t reply sooner, but just got back from holidays.
