Good Gluten Free Recipe, Guest Pammee53

We made this recipe on Thanksgiving for our daughter who was recently diagnosed with celiac. Her food options are so limited, it was nice she was able to find this combination. It was pretty tasty, and everyone enjoyed it. I'm sure she will make it often in the future and I certainly will have it ready for her when she comes to visit.
