It’s been plenty hot here, and this week’s gluten-free meal plan makes use of the slow cooker and stove top to avoid turning on the oven on hot summer days. You can even put your slow cooker outside to keep the heat out of the kitchen. But one recipe that’s worth baking is the blueberry cobbler!

I’m still hobbling along with a walker after my hip surgery. Apparently having screws inserted to hold your bone together is a much harder recovery than hip replacement. It’s hard being patient and missing out on summer. But the great news is that my third grandbaby (another girl) was born this week! She is healthy and adorable!

Main Dish

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken with Potatoes – This recipe uses Italian seasoning and salad dressing as an easy way to add flavor.

Turkey Meatballs in White Sauce – Using turkey instead of beef and a dairy-free white sauce instead of a tomato based sauce makes this a nice change from traditional meatballs and sauce. It’s one of my husband’s favorite meals.

Hummus Crusted Chicken – This is a super easy and tasty way to prepare moist chicken on the stove top.

Slow Cooker Ground Beef Stew – In the summer, I add just enough water to help the food cook but not enough to make it soupy. It’s great served over rice, or you can add potato chunks to it. I often make it without tomatoes (adding a little extra water), and it’s just as good. It’s a great way to use zucchini, but keep in mind that the zucchini has to be added only during the last hour of cooking.

Brown Rice Salad with Ham – This can be eaten warm or cold. It’s great to make ahead and have for a picnic or easy summertime dinner.

Biscuit Crust Pizza – This is a quicker way to make homemade pizza that doesn’t require rise time.

Sides

Carrot, Beet, and Apple Salad – Even people who don’t like beets like this salad. The carrot and apple (or pear) and other ingredients add so much flavor that the beet flavor does not stand out. And raw beets do not taste as strong as cooked beets.

Grilled Zucchini – I love fresh summer zucchini, and grilling it is a great option.

Breakfast

Pancakes – Pancakes are just fun breakfast food. These are delicious and great for a lazy morning.

Zucchnini Quiche Muffins – Here’s another great way to use zucchini for a low-carb breakfast.

Dessert

Blueberry Cobbler – I honestly prefer my berries fresh, but once in a while I’ll cook with them, and this recipe really is delicious.

Chocolate Coconut Candy – This is a really yummy treat that doesn’t require baking.

This week’s gluten-free meal plan uses the slow cooker for flavorful chicken, beef, and pasta meals. You’ll find other dinner, dessert, and breakfast ideas as well, including ways to use some summer produce and a couple of fun chocolate treats.

Main Dish

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore – A delicious way to enjoy chicken. I especially like to brine the chicken first.

Salisbury Steak – A great way to dress up ground beef, especially if you like mushrooms.

Baked Chicken Tenders – These have a grain free coating and the chicken always turns out nice and moist.

Slow Cooker Mexican Beef Bowls – I love that everyone can make their own bowls with or without rice and toppings of choice.

Zucchini and Sausage – I’ve been getting zucchini from my neighbor’s garden, and this is such a flavorful and easy way to cook it.

Slow Cooker Pizza Casserole – Using the crock pot for this dish saves you from having to turn on the oven.

Sides

Roasted Radishes – I like mild flavored radishes in salads, but when they are stronger, I find that roasting helps to mellow the flavor.

Smoothie – During the summer in particular, smoothies are a great way to eat fruit and veggies. And you might get your family to eat some foods they wouldn’t eat otherwise.

Breakfast

Multi-Grain Waffles – Waffles are so much fun to make and eat. I love this version.

Rhubarb Coffee Cake – This is a delicious way to use rhubarb, and its grain free!

Dessert

Peanut Butter Pretzels – These are a fun treat. You can use almond butter if peanuts are a problem.

Edible Chocolate Cups – Try putting ice cream, pudding, or other treats in these edible cups.

In this week’s gluten-free meal plan, you’ll find a few recipes that would be great for a Memorial Day gathering or graduation party. I’m taking the coleslaw to a baby shower. And although you can easily buy gluten-free buns, my homemade hamburger buns are soft and moist, and you can freeze the extras.

Main Dish

Chicken Parmesan is always a big hit with my family, and it’s great for serving to company too.

Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes – If you don’t have or don’t want to use a grill for Memorial Day, these sloppy Joes are a delicious substitute for burgers. There are decent gluten-free hamburger buns available to buy, but we love this recipe for homemade buns.

Baked Chicken Tenders – These chicken tenders have a grain free coating which keeps them nice and moist while they bake.

Slow Cooker Mexican Beef Stew – It’s so easy to throw everything into the crock pot, and I love the way the beef in this recipe turns out so tender.

Salmon Cakes – My mom just loves these, so I make them regularly. And homemade tartar sauce is super easy to mix up or try a homemade remoulade sauce.

Biscuit Crust Pizza means there’s no rise time for the crust. The biscuit dough works best in smaller sizes so it’s perfect for individual pizzas.

Sides

Homemade Coleslaw – I honestly can’t get enough of the homemade stuff, and I love taking this to cookouts.

Hamburger Buns – I mentioned these above, but in case you missed it, these buns are soft and moist. And they freeze well too. We use them for burgers or any kind of sandwich. I like to make the buns thick enough to hold a burger but not so thick that it’s hard to take a bite.

Beet Salad – I love what one friend said about this: “I don’t usually like beets, but this is good!” I think the other ingredients in the salad help to balance out the beet flavor. And it’s a beautiful salad!

Breakfast

Baked Oatmeal – Now is the time to enjoy this before the weather gets too hot to bake. You can put it together at night or bake it in the morning. It’s also great for snacks.

Almond Matcha Smoothie – I eat smoothies almost daily once the cold weather passes. They’re great for any meal or snack, but this one is great for getting you going in the morning.

Dessert

Angel Food Cupcakes – I adore angel food cake and these cupcakes are easier to make than a big cake. They’re great for a party too.

Chocolate Coconut Candy – This is a delicious no-bake, no-cook recipe and it’s much healthier than most chocolate candy.
