I’m at home with my parents this weekend. You know what that means? It means I have access to my Mommy’s kitchen! She has gone gluten free, and always has very cool fresh ingredients that college kids like me can’t afford sometimes… So of course we had to have a little fun cooking together- mother daughter style. We made some tasty gluten-free cornbread, and some Mexican fish stew (my mom had some really fishy fish in her freezer that wasn’t so good, so we needed to cover up that taste with lots of spices!). Without further ado, here are the recipe’s and pictures of our lunch today. It was super tasty, I recommend these recipes, and I definitely recommend taking some time to cook a meal with somebody you love!
Mexican Fish Stew:
We pretty muched used the exact recipe off the foodnetwork website which can be found here.
The only things we did differently were that we used some not-so-tasty white somethingorotherfish instead of Tilapia, we added to hot chile peppers to mask the somethingorotherfish taste a little more, and we used a can of corn instead of corn on the cob!
It was spicy. it was delicious. it made my nose run.

Gluten-free Southern Cornbread:
We had to make our own little recipe for this one 🙂
1 1/4 cups cornmeal
1/2 cup tapioca flour (told you she had cool ingredients!)
1/4 cup sweet white sorghum flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 1/4 cups coconut milk (or almond milk, soy, whatever you want)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 stick butter
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Whisk all the wet ingredients (eggs, milk, vinegar) in another bowl. Add your butter and mix some more. Pour the wet bowl contents into the dry bowl. Mix intil consistent mixture (electric mixer is best for this!). Pour into a sprayed baking dish (about 8 in. square or so is a good size).
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes 🙂
It looks a little something like this.

Happy eating, happy Easter, and happy cooking together everyone!
