I am sort of weary on the taco seasoning situation. I have checked a couple brands and am just not sure about them anymore. I do hear that Chi Chi's brand is safe but, I decided to make my own! It work out really well because I made quite a bit and knew exactly what was in it. Here's the recipe modified from the original found here.
Recipe for seasoning:
2 TBS chilli powder
2 TBS ground cumin
2 TBS garlic powder
2 TBS onion powder
1/2 TBS crushed red pepper (more or less to your liking)
Mix together! This should be enough for almost 3 batches of tacos. I store mine in the freezer. Enjoy!!
Recipe for taco meat:
1 lb ground meat
3 TBS taco seasoning
1 cup water (more or less to your liking)
1. Brown meat until no longer pink and then drain off the fat.
2. Add taco seasoning and water. Simmer for about 5 min.
3. Remove from heat, let stand for 3-5 min. (Sauce will thicken upon standing)
4. Enjoy your yummy tacos :)

People say to try bread last. After your body has adjusted to the new diet and you have grown accustomed to eating non-wheat flours. Well, I made the plunge and decided to try my first gluten-free bread. I chose Udi's sandwich bread because Kroger had it on clearance. I got one loaf for $2.99 instead of $5.99. I was not disappointed in this product! I made a yummy sandwich with provolone, turkey, lettuce, and cucumber. It was so nice to eat a real sandwich instead of a lettuce wrap! I highly recommend this bread to all of you, especially if you can snag a sale!!

Betty Crocker has some great gluten free products out there! I bought the chocolate chip cookie mix from Vitacost with my BetterBatter flour order. Oh my goodness.... these cookies are GOOD! Just like the original ones!! I highly recomend trying these!

Mmmmm. Who doesn't love caramel corn? I have made this every Tuesday for three weeks now to eat while I watch Pretty Little Liars :) This is delightful and of course... gluten free! TGIF :)
Caramel Corn Recipe
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 bag of popped popcorn (I usually love butter but, I prefer plain for this recipe)
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees
2. Line a cookie sheet (preferably with sides) with aluminum foil & spray the foil with cooking spray
3. Lay out the popcorn on the cookie sheet. PICK OUT ALL OF THE KERNALS!
4. In a pot on the stove (over high heat) cook butter, corn syrup, and brown sugar to a boil. Stirring frequently.
5. Boil for five minutes on medium-high heat then, add vanilla.
6. Drizzle the entire mixture over the popcorn and place the popcorn in the oven.
7. Bake for a half hour -- take it out halfway through to stir it (you want all of it covered in caramel!)
8. When it is done, wait for it to cool a little so that you don't burn yourself. (If you allow it to cool too much it will stick to the foil)
Thanks to Morgan & her blog for the original recipe!
