Undefeated White Chicken Chili

A post shared by c a r a k r a m p (@cara_kramp) on

I’m totally going to lose the church chili cook-off this Fall now that I’m writing such a prideful blog post, but it’s time for the world to know the secret to success…. at a Southern Baptist church chili cook-off at least. But just remember, pride before the fall.

My recipe was also featured on All She Cooks a few years back, here’s that link if you’re interested!

Gluten Free Sugar Cookies From Scratch

 photo gluten free sugar cookies 2.0 1_zpsfcudp1mh.png I worked this recipe up a few weeks ago for the adoption bake sale we had at church, & everyone loved the cookies! A few years back, I posted a gluten free sugar cookie recipe that used an all-purpose gluten free flour. The old recipe ok, so if you’re looking for something quick and easy, use that one. Just be sure to use an all-purpose flour that doesn’t have any bean flour in it, you can really taste it in the cookie. Continue reading

Y’all, I have a problem. A cookie problem. But seriously though, I think I’ve made more cookie posts than anything else! I knew I had a sweet tooth, but I don’t think I ever realized just how specific it was toward cookies until just recently. In my defense though, this particular batch was shared with a friend. So at least Matt and I didn’t eat the whole thing by ourselves! Although I’m sure we could have. Sadly. Continue reading

Well that is quite the cookie name, don’t ya think?

I was having a bit of a dilemma naming these guys because they have so much stuff in them. Butterscotch pecan chocolate chip cookies? That is a mouthful… and super boring. Continue reading

Gluten Free Thanksgiving Dressing

This recipe has been in my family for at least four generations. It wasn’t even written down until 2002, when my mom was putting together a family cookbook. It is my favorite thing about Thanksgiving, so when I had to stop eating gluten, I found a way to make it gluten free. The premise is simple – make sure the cornbread is gluten free, and select gluten free seasoning ingredients. So we’re going to start with a from-scratch easy-as-pie gluten free cornbread recipe.

Ten Minute Gluten Free Tartlets

One lazy Saturday afternoon I had this leftover gluten free pie and pastry dough. I had used it to make a quiche but had only needed half of the dough, so there sat the other half. Initially I thought I’d make a chicken pot pie. Then along came the post-nap toddler blues and I really wanted a sweet snack, so these gluten free tartlets were born. Necessity really is the mother of all invention! Continue reading
