Pamela's Gluten Free Recipes

Daily forays into the kitchen for 1 celiac, 1 vegetarian, and 2 carnivores


Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Sides

My son came down for breakfast the other day, and says “Hey Mom, remember when I asked if we could make a Tartiflette for my french class international food day?”  Sure, I do.

I remember, because I thought this would be such a fun mother/son activity.  You know, researching the recipe together, because at that point I had no idea what the heck a Tartiflette was. Maybe the two of us would go to the grocery store to pick up all the ingredients, I know that is a stretch with a 17 yr old boy,  I can dream, can’t I?  And, then we would spend time together in the kitchen making it happen.

Well, as he whips through his breakfast, while putting on his socks, checking his phone, and packing his backpack he sheepishly adds “Yea, well, umm its today”.  Of course.

Or, maybe I should say “Bien Sur”.  Although, I did have a few other choice french words in mind.






  • 2 1/2 lb potatoes, peeled and cubed or sliced
  • 1/2 lb slab bacon, cut in small dice
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine, or chicken stock
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 medium wedge of brie cheese, cubed
  • 2 cups grated Gruyere cheese, swiss would work as well


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Place the potatoes in a pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil.
  3. Cook for about 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are easily pierced with the knife.
  4. Remove from the heat, drain, and let sit until they are cool enough to handle.
  5. Cut the potatoes into small dice and set aside.
  6. In the sauté pan, cook the bacon over med heat until browned.
  7. Drain, leaving 1 tablespoon of fat in the skillet and add the onion.

  9. Add the potatoes and season with salt and pepper.
  10. Remove the potato mixture from the heat and place half of it in the ovenproof dish.

Corn Muffins

I know that I have mentioned a few times before, that there are few foods that I don’t like.  And that really influences what I share here.  Why would I spend the time and energy to cook and photograph something that I don’t particularly like, right?. Up until last week, it didn’t occur to me… Continue reading

Irish Soda Bread

Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread

Today, I run the risk of being predictable.  Being half Irish, and with a last name of McDonough, how could I not share a Irish Soda Bread recipe? This one contains currants, which to The Society for the Preservation of Irish Soda Bread would technically make it a tea cake, not a bona fide soda… Continue reading

Mahi Mahi with Mango Jalapeno Salsa

Mahi Jalapeno Salsa

This last week it seemed as if everyone I know was someplace warm.  Can you blame them?  We have had 20 days this month alone, with minus temperatures.  And there are still a few days left in February.  Sigh. And, I have to admit by this time in the season I am getting tired of… Continue reading

Did you know it is officially 28 days until Spring?  And, that is about as long as I have left in my tank for this brutal winter.   I feel like getting out an old-fashioned calendar, you know one that was printed on actual paper, and marking a big X for each of those days…. Continue reading
