About me

My name is Tanja (Sater) Miller and I'm excited about sharing my journey of converting my favorite recipes to gluten free! I am not a fancy cook - I prefer just a casual, fun meal. I am married with grown children (and have small grandchildren) & 3 dogs. I work full time as a registered nurse & I am a geek. Yes, I love Star Trek, Star Wars, Fringe, Firefly, Farscape and most of the other Scify shows. You will probably see a little of my geek side come out once in a while! Please join me on my journey of cooking, baking & converting every day recipes into yummy gluten free meals that everyone can enjoy (not just those with a gluten allergy!) Don't be shy about checking out my recipes....I have the gluten free version along with the regular recipe that I adapted from!

Gluten Free Butter Pecan Cookies

Butter Pecan Cookies with Chocolate Chips (optional)
Butter Pecan Cookies. With or without chocolate chips. SCRUMPTIOUS! The browned butter flavor + toasted pecans & brown sugar = SCRUMPTIOUS! It's an old fashioned recipe that I have re-vamped into gluten free. If you don't have a gluten allergy then you can just use regular flour in place of the gluten free flour. My husband likes it with the added dark chocolate chips...I like it best without chocolate although either way is delicious. Seriously, how can you go wrong with butter, pecans and brown sugar?! The rich flavor of browned butter combined with the melt in your mouth brown sugar + crunchy toasted pecans... I think I could just eat the combination with a spoon....if calories didn't count!

I had to play around with this particular recipe to make the gluten free version taste delicious. The original recipe called for granulated white sugar but I found it made the cookies too crumbly. Switched it to brown sugar and got the texture I wanted. I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you brown your butter. It really brings out the incredible flavor in these cookies and you don't want to miss that tantalizing flavor on your taste buds! Trust me! I have tried it both ways and there is no comparison. The flavor is so much more intense if you brown your butter. (Browning butter simply means to cook it in a saucepan on medium heat until it is completely melted and the butter becomes a golden caramel color and has some sediment. Don't strain off the sediment. Use all of the yummy melted butter that is in the pan....including the sediment). I have never made this particular recipe with margarine or a butter substitute so I don't know if it would turn out the same but I doubt it. The browned butter plays a key role in the flavor of this cookie. I am sure if you have a dairy allergy or nut allergy you could tweak this recipe and still end up with a great cookie....but it won't be the same intense flavors. I also highly recommend that you lightly toast your chopped pecans to bring out their rich flavor and crunch. I have also added toffee bits in the past but I thought it made the cookie a little too sweet....although some people just loved it. Personal preference!

Butter Pecan Cookie Recipe:
  • 1/2 cup real butter (Don't skimp here. Use real butter for the best flavor! There is a difference in this recipe!)
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum (use this only if you are using gluten free flour mix that doesn't already contain xanthan or guar gum. If you are using regular flour, omit this!)
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free flour blend (I used Trader Joe's brand in today's recipe. If you don't have a gluten allergy then you can use regular flour). I personally avoid gluten free flour blends that contain sorghum in my sweet baked goods. I don't like the flavor. It's fine in savory breads.
  • 1/2 cup finely ground almonds or pecans (or you can just use additional 1/2 cup gluten free flour if you don't have this ingredient. I have tried it both ways and it works fine either way).
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, lightly toasted.
  • 1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, optional (I usually take half the dough and leave out the chocolate chips and put about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips in the other half).
In a small saucepan, brown the butter. The butter will melt completely and turn a golden caramel color. It will have sediment in the bottom which is normal. I use all of it....sediment included for this cookie recipe. I pour it into my mixing bowl and let it cool slightly while I toast the pecans. (You don't want to mix really hot butter with the eggs!). I toast the pecans either in a skillet on medium heat stirring frequently so they don't burn just until lightly toasted. The other option is to put on a cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes or until lightly toasted. Watch the nuts closely! They can get burned really quickly! That is the one reason why I do the butter and the pecans separately. That way I can focus on one at a time and not ruin either of them. Butter and pecans are both expensive and I don't want to burn either of them! Add the brown sugar and cream until smooth. Add the eggs and beat for about 2 minutes. Add the salt, baking soda, baking powder and mix well. Add flour (and xanthan gum if you are using gf flour that doesn't already contain it or guar gum). Mix in toasted nuts. If you are using chocolate chips, add them too. Stir by hand. Batter will be slightly thick.  I refrigerate my batter for at least an hour. It is easier to handle and the cookies won't spread so much. They will come out slightly thick, soft and chewy. I found that if I didn't refrigerate the dough, the cookies spread a little more and came out a little crispier. Place spoonfuls onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake 350 degrees for about 9-11 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool before removing from cookie sheets. (I find that if I refrigerate my cookie dough for about an hour then the cookies will be a little thicker and don't spread as much. Both ways are delicious!)

Makes about 3 dozen nice sized cookies or 4 dozen small cookies

By the way, I took these cookies into work yesterday. They all claim they don't like nuts in baked goods. The cookies were all gone by 9am! (The traditional chocolate chip cookies were the last ones eaten!). I have to agree....I normally don't care for nuts in my cookies but these were so darn tasty. The butter and toasted pecans just explode flavor in your mouth. This recipe is a keeper! 

I used farm fresh eggs in this recipe today. My friend April gave me some assorted fresh eggs from her chickens. Different types of chickens lay different colored eggs. (They all cook up the same way but they look so cool looking). I almost hated using the eggs because they were so pretty! I have never had such a beautiful assortment of eggs. I wish I would have photographed the eggs before I used them. I had speckled, brown, white and light green eggs! I love using fresh eggs in my baked goods. Everything always turns out so much fluffier with fresh eggs! Thanks April! If I lived out of the city limits...I would definitely have chickens! I love fresh eggs!

With chocolate chips. See the yummy pecan pieces?

Ready for taste testing! (My favorite part)

These are the crispier version (no refrigerating before baking)

Gluten Free Microwave Bread in a Mug

Gluten Free Bread Microwaved in a Coffee Mug!
Gluten Free Microwave Bread in a Mug! Yes, single serve gluten free fresh bread when you want it! You can add different flavors to customize it. I love this recipe because I am not a person that eats bread daily and I hate to buy a loaf of bread and have it wasted. I don't care for bread once it has been frozen so that really limits me. Plus when I am on vacation, I can whip up a fresh personal loaf whenever I want it in just a few minutes in the microwave! I just travel with a small bag of gluten free flour (like Betty Crocker or Trader Joe's versions) and I take a little travel size packet of xanthan gum and baking powder and those are my basics for my gluten free personal sized bread loaf. If I am traveling on vacation, I just snag a couple of packets of sugar and salt from a restaurant so I have it at the condo/hotel. You will need one egg per loaf but I almost always have eggs so that isn't an issue for me. Most of the condos/hotels that I have stayed in have a mini-fridge. You can make this bread without oil but I prefer a teaspoon of margarine, butter or oil....if you are on vacation then grab a butter packet at a restaurant. I always ask the waitress or cashier and they always give me a couple.

I have learned to live my life without bread for the most part. Sometimes when traveling to beach locations (or hiking trips), I like to have a peanut butter sandwich like everyone else. I hate to be "high maintenance" and pack a different type of lunch. This quick gluten free microwave bread recipe allows me to make a quick personal loaf of bread so that I can pack a sandwich too! This will be great for my upcoming trip to Hawaii with my siblings. I want to keep my suitcase light and travel smart. I hate to spend time shopping for specialty groceries for me (not only are they extremely expensive but shopping is time consuming) and it is wasteful if it doesn't get eaten. I can make a personal loaf when and if I need it. This recipe only takes a few minutes total so I can make it while everyone else is showering. Yep, it is that quick! I like to toast it if I am eating it for breakfast but it makes a decent sandwich for lunches too. I have always eaten it the same day so I am not sure how long it will keep or what the texture would be like a couple days later.

I have made the bread plain and if you add sugar it reminds me of Hawaiian rolls which I really like. Slightly sweet. You can leave the sugar out and substitute it with flour. I have also added cinnamon + a tiny box of raisins (about 2 tbs) for raisin bread. I have also used dried cranberries and walnuts. I have added dried rosemary or Italian seasonings for a savory bread if I am making it at home. You can pretty much customize it to whatever flavors you really like. I have also used the personal bread loaf as a base for a personal pizza. It is kind of like using french bread or bagels as your pizza base. ("Bagel Bites Pizza" idea) You just top it with pizza sauce, cheese and your favorite pizza toppings and bake until toasty and cheese is melted. It is great when you are in the mood for a quick, gluten free pizza snack without all the fuss. You can slice the bread into small round slices or you can slice it lengthwise for a sandwich - hoagie bun size.

The idea of microwave bread in a mug came to me when I was experimenting with coffee mug microwave personal chocolate cakes. I tried a few different recipes and several of them had a bread like texture. Hmmmm.....if I tweaked it just a little then I could have a personal loaf of bread any time I wanted. I liked the concept. I'm still experimenting with flavors and different flour blends. Although the texture is a little heavier than traditional yeast can't beat convenience of this super quick & easy bread and let's face is very economical! I am not saying this is the absolute best gluten free bread...I am just saying that I really like it for a quick personal loaf without a lot of fuss. Who wants to drag out a bread maker or heavy duty mixer when you just want a personal loaf? This is also quick for busy mom's that need a quick breakfast or bread for a child on a gluten free diet. It takes just as long as making oatmeal in the microwave! This bread can also be made into French toast! Come easy is that! (Not to mention that if you cut the bread into the round circles then it makes super cute French toast!)

Gluten Free Microwave Bread in a Mug Recipe:
  • 8 tbs. gluten free flour blend (I used Betty Crocker Gluten Free blend today. I have also used Trader Joe's brand, Cup 4 Cup brand, Hodgson Mill brand and my own gluten free flour blend. They all worked fine. I personally liked my gluten free flour blend and the cup 4 cup brand best. You can find my recipe for gluten free flour blend below). When traveling, I found it easier to take the smaller bags of flour like Trader Joe's or Betty Crocker Gluten Free Flour. I find it easier to go through security lines at the airport with the flour in the original package so I pack new small bag of gluten free flour! (I did not try Bisquick Gluten Free Baking Mix since I did not want a biscuit texture).
  • 1 tbs. sugar (I used raw sugar but you can use regular sugar)
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • pinch of xanthan gum or guar gum if your gluten free flour mix doesn't already contain it (I used 1/16 tsp. which is half of 1/8 teaspoonful. It is literally a tiny amount!)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbs. milk (you can substitute almond milk, soy milk, rice milk or water if you have a dairy allergy)
  • 1 teaspoon butter, margarine or oil
  • (you can add optional seasonings if you want like cinnamon, Italian blend, Rosemary or dried fruit like raisins or cranberries. I would limit the amount of dried fruit to about 2-3 tbs)
Mix the egg, milk and butter or oil together with a fork. Stir in flour, sugar, baking powder & salt (xanthan gum or guar gum if you need to use it).  Pour into a microwave safe coffee mug. You can even mix it in the coffee mug if you have to. I just like to lightly coat my coffee mug with cooking spray or butter/oil so the bread loaf pops out really easy. I have done it without the grease coating and it works okay too but just a little more work getting it out of the mug. Microwave on high for 90 seconds. I usually take a look at it and if still looks uncooked on the top then I toss it back into the microwave for additional 20-30 seconds. You don't want gummy bread. On the other hand, don't over bake it either or you will get a rubbery texture. Cool slightly and enjoy it warm, cold or toasted!

My Homemade Gluten Free Flour Blend Recipe:
  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice flour
  • 1 cup white rice flour (I used sweet rice flour for this batch)
  • 1/2 cup glutinous rice flour (made from sticky rice, gluten free)
  • 1 cup potato starch (not flour)
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk, make sure it is very fine in texture
  • 1 cup corn starch or tapioca starch (I used tapioca starch for this batch)
  • 3 tbs. xanthan gum
Combine all ingredients together well. You can put it in the blender for an extra smooth texture if desired. I store mine in a glass container and use it in place of regular flour in all my recipes. This particular blend I really like for baked sweet goods and breads. (Note: if using my homemade gluten free flour blend you will not need to add additional xanthan gum to your recipe since this batch already contains it!)

Hawaiian Sweet Bread (added the sugar)

Plain white bread (only added a pinch of sugar and substituted the sugar listed in recipe with flour)

Raisin Bread Version. Added 2 tbs. raisins with 1 tbs. cinnamon

Up close view of my sliced raisin bread. It was delicious with strong coffee! :)

I hope you enjoy my very casual, very simple recipe for a personal loaf of bread made in the microwave. I would love to hear any substitutions or additions that you tried!

Truffles! How to do you say yummy?! These are so ridiculously easy that you won't believe it until you try them. They remind me of the Lindt Truffles. Creamy smooth center with a burst of rich flavor. Don't let the ingredients fool you. My son (David) and I made these together and were impressed with the results.  We found this old recipe in a children's church packet from when he was a kid. They made similar ones but didn't dip them into chocolate. They pressed a Hershey Kiss in the center instead. That way the kids didn't get burned dipping chocolate (and I assume it was less messy!) We decided to dip them for a more truffle like flavor. When my mom got here for Christmas vacation....we made a couple more batches. She couldn't believe how easy and yummy they were!

We made them during the Christmas holiday season but you can make these for Valentine's day, wedding favors, baby shower, birthday party, mother's day, father's day or just simply for no reason at all. They are fun to make and the flavor combinations are endless! There is no flour in this recipe so they are naturally gluten free anyway. (Just double check your chocolate chips to make sure they didn't add gluten or process on equipment using wheat flour! Most brands don't contain gluten but double check. I like to use the Guittard brand because they are labeled as gluten free on the package!)

Truffle Recipe:
1 (12 oz) bag of chocolate chips (any flavor you want to use)
1 can (16 oz.) of frosting (like Betty Crocker or Pillsbury - any flavor)
12 oz. candy coating (also called almond bark) - you can use any flavor. Some brands like Wilton candy coating you can get in colors and flavors. Other brands are only available in white and dark chocolate. You can generally purchase them at your grocery store in the chocolate chip section or at craft stores like JoAnn Fabrics, Michael's Crafts, Hobby Lobby, etc.

(You can also add flavored extracts or juice to your filling to customize flavors. For example: in my key lime, lemon and orange flavored truffles, we added some zest and about 1-2 tbs. juice from fresh limes, oranges and lemons although you really don't need to do that if you don't have it on hand. It just gives the filling a punch of extra tartness which we like). You can keep this recipe extremely simple by just using the 3 ingredients above. It will turn out great. I like to play around with recipes a little bit so we usually come up with some interesting flavors. People that know me....well they know I like Chipotle flavor so yes....I admit that I added a touch of Chipotle chile powder to my dark chocolate truffles. Just a pinch of heat. Absolutely devine! Like I said....You can be creative!

In a microwave safe bowl, melt your chocolate chips (whatever flavor you are using is fine). I melt in 30 second intervals so I don't burn the chocolate. You can also use a double boiler if you prefer. Once the chocolate chips are completely melted and smooth, stir in the entire can of frosting and stir well. At this point, you can add any additional flavors if you want. (Peppermint extract, chipotle chile powder, almond extract, butter extract, citrus zest, citrus juice, etc.). I would start off with just 1-2 teaspoons of extract flavor if you are using it. It can be powerful in flavor! Stir well. This will be the "filling" of your truffle. I put it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to let it harden a little bit. It will make it easier to work with. Roll in 1" balls. Refrigerate until slightly firm and chilled. This will keep them from becoming too soft when you dip them in melted chocolate. (If you prefer to keep it can just push a Hershey kiss in the center and call it done. You don't have to dip them. I prefer them dipped although it is a little more work!) Melt your candy coating (almond bark) in the microwave or double boiler until smooth. If you are having a hard time getting it smooth, add a teaspoon or two of Crisco shortening. It will help thin it out. You don't want the coating to be too thick on the truffles. You want a nice thin coat. I dip them with a fork. I lay the ball gently on the fork, dip the entire ball and let the excess chocolate drip off the fork. Place on waxed paper to cool completely so the chocolate will set. Sometimes I will add a sprinkle of colored sugar, sprinkles, chopped nuts, chopped candy, edible glitter, zest, or a contrasting color of candy coating to accent the truffles.

Some of the most popular truffle combinations I have tried:
  • Pillsbury Key Lime Flavor Frosting + White chocolate Chips (I added some lime zest & 2 tbs. fresh lime juice. I dipped them in lime green colored white chocolate candy coating. Sometimes Wilton candy coating will have key lime flavored which is also great but it is seasonal and they don't always have it available).
  • Pillsbury Orange Flavor Frosting + White chocolate chips. I added some orange zest & 2 tbs. fresh orange juice. I dipped them in white chocolate candy coating.
  • Betty Crocker Chocolate Frosting + Dark Chocolate Chips (Some of them I left the filling plain and the other half of the batch I added 1/2 tsp. chipotle chile powder for a spicy kick). Dipped them in dark chocolate candy coating. They would also be delicious dipped in white.
  • Betty Crocker Chocolate Frosting + Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (I added 1 tsp. peppermint extract for a minty flavor). Dipped them in dark chocolate candy coating. They would also be good dipped in white chocolate candy coating.
  • Betty Crocker Lemon Frosting + White Chocolate chips (I added some lemon zest & 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice. I dipped them in white chocolate candy coating).
  • Betty Crocker cream cheese flavor frosting + white chocolate chips (I added 1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and dipped them in white chocolate candy coating).
  • Pillsbury Strawberry Frosting + White chocolate chips. Dipped half the batch in White chocolate candy coating and the other half in dark chocolate candy coating. 
  • Vanilla or Chocolate frosting + Peanut butter flavored chips. Dipped them in dark or milk chocolate candy coating. 
  • Betty Crocker Chocolate Frosting + Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips (I added about 1/4 cup of either crushed Butterfinger Candy bar pieces OR Toffee Bits). Dipped them in dark or milk chocolate candy coating.
  • Betty Crocker Chocolate Frosting + Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips (I added 1 tsp. Instant Espresso Coffee powder and dipped half the batch in dark chocolate candy coating and the other half in white chocolate candy coating.

I hope you enjoy this super easy and delicious recipe for truffles. We had fun making this recipe and it is now a family favorite. You can use any flavor of frosting or chocolate chips to create custom flavor truffles. They also have flavored frosting sprinkles (found in frosting aisle) that allow you to customize your frosting flavor.  (I have not tried using homemade frosting in this recipe yet). There are also a lot of extracts and baking emulsions that you can use to customize your flavors. It just depends on how creative you want to get. The possibilities are almost endless! There is also nothing wrong with keeping it simple. You can just use the basic ingredients and still have a fabulous truffle. Try it. This is a great recipe to make on a lazy weekend or on a snow day! (Okay, we don't get snow days here in the Phoenix area but my friends and family in the midwest....well they sure have got dumped with a lot of snow lately!)

Feel free to post any of your combinations that you try. I am interested in hearing about how you customize your truffles!

Summer Sausage

Summer Sausage. I can't imagine a Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve without my dad's recipe for summer sausage. It is super easy to make and I like that it doesn't have all the funky preservatives that you get from the store bought versions. It's naturally gluten free. You will be so surprised at how easy summer sausage is to make. You don't need casings or anything special for this recipe. This is a great old hillbilly recipe that our family has been making for generations.

I will include the original recipe and my version that has a more intense flavor. You can add any spices that you prefer but keep in mind that because of the curing salt added in the recipe you will want to go easy on adding any spice blends that include salt or your summer sausage may turn out extremely salty! I generally use lean ground beef for the recipe but you can use ground game meat or a mixture of hamburger and pork. You can also use ground chicken if you prefer. The recipe is flexible like that. (Most of our family recipes are very flexible. Sometimes you just have to improvise with the ingredients you have available). The key ingredient in this recipe is curing salt. I use the Morton Tender Quick brand. I have a difficult time finding it at our local stores in Arizona but you can order it online or ask your grocer to special order it for you. I stock up when I go to Ohio. I usually find it on the bottom shelf in the salt aisle. It runs just under $5 for a 2 pound bag and it will last for a very long time since you only use a couple of tablespoons per recipe. I store it in a glass jar. You can sometimes find curing salt at hunting supply stores but you will generally pay a lot more money for it. You might also be able to find it at specialty meat markets. Ask your butcher!

I have my second summer sausage in the oven right now. The one I made for Christmas Eve is long gone and we are wanting one that is a little spicier for New Years Eve. I really wanted one with some jalapeno and cheddar cheese blend but my mom doesn't like that flavor so I tamed it down a little. Just don't tell her I added a little chipotle chile powder! :) I even take a baggie full of my custom spice blend when we go on vacation to a condo that has an oven. It is so simple to make and it is a great snack for evenings or protein breakfast on the go! Sometimes we just want a light dinner of summer sausage and cheese after a big lunch or a tiring day of sight seeing. I like it because I know it doesn't contain gluten like some of the lunch meat, it is more economical and absolutely delicious!

Summer Sausage Recipe:
  • 2 pounds of raw ground hamburger or game meat (you can substitute ground chicken or mix in some ground pork if you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons of curing salt (I use Morton Tender Quick)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Liquid Smoke
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder NOT GARLIC SALT! (I add at least 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper (I add at least 1 teaspoon)
  • 1/4 cup water (I sometimes add BBQ sauce or broth instead for extra flavor!)

The above recipe is my dad's original basic recipe. You can add other spices like I do or add finely chopped cheese and jalapenos which we sometimes will do too. In my version today I followed the above recipe but also added the following spices:
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. chipotle chile powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder or finely crushed onion
  • 1/4 tsp. ground mustard powder
  • 1 tsp. beef bouillon (gluten free)
  • 2 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
Mix all the ingredients together well. (I just mix it with clean hands so I can mix all the spices together really good). Roll into a log shape. Wrap in foil or plastic wrap. Refrigerate about 24 hours. Remove plastic wrap or foil. Bake in either a broiler pan or a cookie rack on top of a cookie sheet with edges so the meat drippings will drain and catch in the pan so you don't cause a fire in your oven!) Oven temperature should be 300 degrees. Bake 70-80 minutes until lightly golden. Cool and wrap in plastic wrap or foil. Store in refrigerator. (It will keep several weeks in your refrigerator!) Slice & serve!

This is the brand of curing salt I use
Ready to mix all the spices and curing salt together!

All mixed up and rolled into a log shape

For great appetizer you can serve with gluten free crackers and cheese or use the summer sausage slice to top with cheese ball, cheese spreads or any other topping instead of crackers. It makes a great presentation on a platter! I love this recipe because not only is it absolutely delicious but it is great to serve guests because everyone can eat it...even your gluten free guests!

I use the summer sausage in in place of a cracker for cheese balls for a fun and elegant appetizer

I have been asked to share this recipe many times. I decided to add it to my gluten free blog since it is easy to make and it reminds me of my dad during the holidays. He is greatly missed and this appetizer reminds me of him.

Happy Holidays!
