In a medium saucepan combine the butter and brown sugar. Cook until the mixture is smooth stirring frequently. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl beat the peanut butter and brown sugar mixture on low until well blended. Beat 1 minute on medium-high then add the whipped topping and beat an additional minute on low or until it's smooth and well mixed. I take a spatula and stir a few times to make sure it's evenly mixed.
Pour into the chocolate cookie crust and refrigerate.
*Since we avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup I usually make my own whipped topping since all of the common brands contain HFCS. However I have found TruWhip in the frozen section at Rosauer's Huckleberry's Market and it is free of HFCS. It works perfectly when I'm not in the mood to make whipped topping from scratch.
1/2 C choclate chips
1 T butter
2-3 t milk
1 1/2 t agave
In a small saucepan melt the chocolate chips, butter, milk, and agave over low heat stirring constantly until smooth. Add additional milk if needed to get a desired spreading consistency.
Spoon over the peanut butter pie filling and gently spread over the top of the pie. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
I suggest cutting it into small pieces because this pie is rich!

There are a few GF canned mushroom soups out there, some of them cause me to react digestively to the preservatives in them but the Walnut Acres soup didn't give me any problems. The only place I've seen this is Oak Street Natural Market, I haven't really looked for it anywhere else. It's not as thick as some of the other GF cream of mushroom soups so try the different brands and see which one you like best. I know Healthy Valley makes a GF soup and you can find it at most grocery stores.
Turkey Potato Casserole
Adapted from All Recipes
2 C cooked turkey, shredded
1 onion, chopped
2 cans green beans, drained
1 can GF cream of mushroom soup
16 oz cheddar cheese, shredded - use Daiya for a DF option
4 C prepared mashed potatoes
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a 9x13 baking dish layer the turkey evenly on the bottom. Top with the onion and green beans. Pour the soup over the beans and sprinkle 4 oz cheese on top. Mix together the mashed potatoes and 8 oz of cheese then spread over the casserole and seal the edges.
Bake for 40 minutes or until heated through. Top with the remaining 4 oz of cheese and bake until it's melted.

I really like the Breads from Anna mixes, the texture is the closest to gluten bread I have had so far and they taste wonderful. For meals I really like to use the Herb Bread mix to make rolls and I made them for our turkey dinner this past weekend. They turned out so nice that our gluten eating guests went back for seconds and took some of them home, that's a good sign.
To make the rolls follow the directions for a bread loaf but use a large scoop (my Pampered Chef one worked really well) to make the rolls. Smooth the tops with your fingers, make sure they're a little wet, and allow to rise. Bake for 10 min uncovered then cover and bake another 10 minutes.

Casa Sanchez in Bozeman has corn tortillas that are safe for us GFer's but be sure you only have their green sauce. The red sauce has wheat in it and is NOT safe.
Sir Scott's Oasis Steakhouse in Manhattan used MSG on all of it's meats, from the steaks to the burgers. If you have reactions to MSG I would not recommend eating here (very big bummer in my opinion because I love the Oasis) without discussing the seasonings they use on the meat and whether you can get it without them. On a GF note I've never had a problem eating GF when I was there as long as you avoid the obvious gluten filled foods (like their delicious jo-jo's).
Anyone else have any tips to share?
