Use Your Microwave Often?

This is the best and easiest way to clean your microwave!

Place 2 cups of water in a microwavable bowl.

Nuke it for 5 mins on regular setting.

After 5 mins are up, leave the bowl in the microwave for another 2 mins or so to let it steam.

Take out bowl (will still be HOT!) and wipe down the oven....everything slips off so easily, no cleaner needed.

Scrumptious GLEE (gfree) Stuffing

I made this gluten-free stuffing at Thanksgiving and it was everyone's favorite (even the wheat-eaters')!! The key is good gluten-free bread.

Melt in pan:
-1/3 c butter or marg

Add and saute until tender:
-1 c chopped celery
-1 c sliced mushrooms
-1/4 c diced onion

Remove from heat and add:
-seasonings such as sage or tarragon or basil or rosemary (or whatever you like)

In bowl combine:
-6 c cubed gluten-free bread (I use one Against the Grain Gourmet gf baguette)
-1/2 chopped pecans
-1/2 cup dried cranberries
-the sauteed veggies & butter above
-3/4 c chick broth or water

Bake stuffing inside roast turkey or chicken or cook separately at 325F for 25 mins covered with foil, then remove foil and bake another 15 mins until slightly crispy.

Even better the next day!
