Glorious (and Gluten-Free!) Appetizers
Crowd-pleasers all, these spectacular appetizers don't contain gluten but are flavor-packed pairings for your favorite cocktail, beer, or wine. Serve them at your next party.
Basic Chicken Soup
Everyone has their own favorite chicken soup recipe, but rarely have so few ingredients added up to so much comfort. This version has classic flavors and, thanks to a simplified method, cooks more quickly than traditional chicken soups (the dish is ready in a little over an hour). There's no need to make a separate stock; the vegetables and meat form their own satisfying broth.
Perfect Roast Chicken
The almost universal appeal of roasted chicken stems from its power to comfort. The ideal roasted chicken recipe will leave your chicken golden brown and gleaming, tender, and juicy. The crackle of chicken as it roasts and the wondrous aroma that perfumes the kitchen provoke a feeling of satisfaction and fulfillment.
Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut Milk and Ginger
Sweet roasted butternut squash tempers the heat of fresh ginger in this vegan soup. Coconut milk is swirled in for creaminess, while toasted squash seeds add a pleasing crunch.
Potato, Broccoli, and Cheddar Soup
Broccoli is used two ways in this kid-friendly dish: it's simmered until tender for the soup base and roasted for the garnish.
Chocolate-Peanut-Butter-Caramel Cereal Bars
Here's a risk-free way to get rich quick: Try our easy take on the classic chocolate-caramel butter bars known as millionaire's shortbread. We swap in crispy, marshmallow-laden rice cereal for its base, and add a thin layer of peanut-butter caramel under the chocolate-shell topping. Just invest a little time to let it chill, and it pays off with every extravagant bite.
