Nesting Season

Fall and Winter are the days for comfort foods. Most of which are filling, fattening, gluteny dishes. Last night I found myself making a list of foods that I want to try to make GF versions of. Chicken pot pie is my all-time favorite comfort food. I used to buy Mrs. Budd's brand with the thick crust on top and serve it over rice or mashed potatoes. YUUUUUM. Then I'd sit on the couch feeling like I had just dined on a dish of wet cement.. but the taste was too delicious to pass up! Now that Mrs. Budd's is off my radar, I am in the market for a good GF alternative. I've been stocking up on recipes that I've borrowed from all you awesome GF cooks out there and I might even have one already in my files but if you have a good recipe please pass on the link! I also am going to buy some glutino pretzels and make chocolate covered pretzels one of these days. Maybe for Halloween, ooh yeah, that sounds good! I also am really in the mood for corn bread, maybe with some chili... oh my gosh, so much for losing a couple pounds!!!

Yuuuuuuuum. Boy I miss chicken pot pie.

I was thinking about attempting it with the crust I made for my recent apple pie and the filling from a barefoot contessa episode:

I'll let you know if it works out!

Have you ever seen the Gluten Free Comfort Foods cookbook? I have a copy on my counter at all times. Nothing like a chill in the air to bring about some warm, comfort food cravings! Let me know if y0ou get a pie crust figured out!

Comfort foods are my favorite. If you want a quick pot pie, Amy's makes a GF, Vegan Shepard's Pie. I know it's not quite the same, but I like it. Oh, and cornbread. I love that stuff. Gluten Free Pantry has a wonderful mix. I haven't quite found a good GF recipe yet for it though...

Oh! And for a pie crust, the book You Won't Believe It's Gluten Free, by Roben Ryberg, has a really good one.
