Delicious Garlic-Herb Shrimp

This recipe isn't for the faint at heart.  You have to like two things: garlic and shrimp.  If you do, you're in luck!  I've made this a few times and it's delicious fresh or after it's rested overnight allowing the flavors to really mesh together.  You could serve it over salad or in a sandwich.  It was a perfect post-Thanksgiving meal. Enjoy!

My Favorite Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Dinner Recipes!

We happily celebrate Thanksgiving in our house - twice. Thank you Canada and US for allowing us to celebrate both in October AND November.  We're twice as grateful (and probably twice as rolly-polly, too).   In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving #2, here's a list of a bunch of my favorite recipes that I enjoy choosing from for Thanksgiving meals!  Sometimes it's nice to just have them all in one location!  Happy cooking!!!

Steamed Artichokes w/ butter

A spread for a small Thanksgiving - rolls, cranberry-pumpkin bread, tomatoes & fresh basil (thanks to my neighbor, turkey, gravy, potatoes, sweet potatoes, cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce). Yum! *Thanksgiving #1*
If only I'd taken the picture BEFORE we had all served ourselves. But it was too tempting to dig in!  *Thanksgiving #2 - how were we still hungry after Thanksgiving#1?*

Gluten Free Main Dishes:

Turkey, Turkey Stock/Broth & Gravy (I like to season, butter, and bake at 425 F in a straight-forward manner. I like to season according to my chicken recipe here - I just tripled it for the turkey, and basted a few times during cooking.  I also made it in a pan with a rack the turkey sat on and used the drippings for a gravy, made from that same chicken recipe, just quadrupled!).

Crispy-topped Peach Cobbler (My Quick Version)

This yummy crispy-topped peach cobbler is based off Zilpha's Peach Cobbler recipe, the grandmother of a family friend.  Zilpha used fresh peaches and quite a bit of extra sugar, but I tweaked it a bit to make a recipe perfect for the peach slices canned in water or extra-light syrup.  Still delicious and packed with the flavors and crispy topping Zilpha intended. Enjoy!

Peach Cobbler/Crisp
Makes one 8 x 8 pan

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In an 8 x 8 glass pan, combine the following:
48 oz/ 1.4 liters/ 6 cups canned peach slices, drained (use peaches canned in water or extra-light syrup)  OR peel and slice ~3-4 fresh, ripe peaches
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup Kristin's Gluten-Free Flour Mix
1-2 tsp cinnamon

Mix together in a large bowl (if you want a lighter topping, make half the amount listed here - it'll work perfectly well, too!):
1 cup Kristin's Gluten-free Flour Mix
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Add, chopping in with a pastry cutter until you have a crumbly topping:
3 Tbsp butter, chilled
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste

Sprinkle the crumb topping over the prepared peaches.  Bake at 350 F for ~50 minutes, until topping is browning.  Serve hot or warm!

This peach cobbler is so flavorful, it can be served alone - no ice cream or whipped cream needed!  Enjoy!

A peach cobbler made with the larger amount of crumb topping - for a juicier cobbler, make 1/2 the topping. Either way it's delicious!
