Eggs Benedict Sandwich On 
Gluten-Free English Muffins 
My oh my! This lovely breakfast entrĂ©e was offered on a menu at a local So Cal restaurant. Of course I wasn't able to order it due to the wheat based English muffin, but I could come home and make it!

First I would need to make fabulous gluten free English muffins, which I did, (and was a prior post), and I might add that the entire process was so satisfying. It far outshines a commercial breakfast sandwich that is advertised daily. In fact it kicks it in right in the pan!It took me several days worth of juggling events in my household so I could take the time to make the English muffins. I wanted them to turn out just right. I felt if I couldn't give them my undivided attention they would suffer, and then so would I.

English Muffins

I love, love, lovvvvve great English muffins. Love them. Really. I tried a store bought GF product a while ago and it was inedible as far as I was concerned, it was so dry we could have painted it black and sold it as a premium hockey-puck. Hey! There's an idea, we could make and sell those! No? 
So I decided to try making them, and I'm so happy with the results!
I had bought English muffins rings at Sur la Table, 4 for $6.00. That's it, six bucks. I bought two sets. When I first bought these they were for making hamburger buns. There are several fast food places that have regular wheat English muffins. These would triumph in fragrance, taste, appearance and cost. They are very airy-like an English muffin should be, very, very wonderful taste and the appearance is foolproof!

Granma Lane's Fresh Rhubarb Fixins'
Rhubarb has always been it's own food group to me. I love it made every way possible and the possibilities are absolutely endless. It's packed with vitamin C, antioxidants, as well as oodles of other nutrients and fiber.
I love to eat it warm, and topped with a scoop of homemade vanilla-bean ice-cream for dessert or just because at any time of the day, really.

Clam Chowder - New England Style 
In Gluten Free Foccacia Bread Bowls

I've been making this same recipe for chowder, or "chowdah" if you live in our New England states, for about 40 years. It's very creamy, buttery and perfectly thick, loaded with yummy little clams, tender potatoes, caramelized onions, and some parsley for color and nutrition. Oh, yes, and topped with some crispy bacon pieces. Fabulous.

Lazy Day English Toffee S'Mores Bars 
 God Bless Chocolate!
These are favorite "little smackerals" (Winnie The Poohism's) of both of my daughter's and their friends. I even make these for bake sales, catering, gifts...they are a sell out in many, many ways!
These are oozing dark chocolate sandwiched between a buttery, lightly sweetened gluten free graham crust and heaping mounds of toasted, tender masrshmallows. Just look at them! How could you not want to just reach right in and get one?!
