Gluten-Free Cheesesteak Casserole #glutenfree

I used to love a good old Betty Crocker casserole for sure!  And thought wouldn’t it be fun to take some classics and adapt them to my dietary restrictions now that I can eat goat cheese.  So I’ve been on a casserole kick lately.  And you know what I haven’t had in about 7 or 8 years – a Philly Cheesesteak.  So I’m all over adapting this Betty Crocker recipe for Philly Cheese and Ground...

Bison Enchilada Soup #glutenfree #dairyfree

Bison Enchilada Soup I love the flavor of enchilada sauce, but sometimes I don’t want all the calories that come with eating enchiladas.  Plus the cold weather and my ridiculous allergies this time of year (cedar and mold) are really making me crave soup.  So why not make a bison enchilada soup!  That sounds really good, right? And, oh it was! I like to use bison because it is a much leaner meat that ground...

Gluten-free Lemon Ricotta Cookies #glutenfree

Gluten-Free Lemon Ricotta Cookies These gluten-free lemon ricotta cookies are made with Kite Hill Almond Milk Ricotta Cheese and a blend of gluten free flours.  They are light and fluffy with a little sweet, lemony tang from the glaze.  It was my first swing at this recipe and I’m super excited about how they turned out. I originally bought the ricotta to use in a baked ziti dish but changed the recipe at the last...

Baked Penne with Bison #glutenfree

Gluten-free Baked Penne with Bison So while everyone else is vowing to eat better this new year – I’m starting off the year making a bunch of pasta and goat cheese dishes. 🙂 Ever since we found bionaturae gluten free Italian pasta, I have been in pasta heaven.  The taste and texture really beats any of the other gluten free pastas I’ve tried so far.  It is made with organic rice, potato and soy.  And when...

Smoky Goat Cheese Pimento Cheese

Smoky Goat Cheese Pimento Cheese Wait, what? I love pimento cheese!  And I haven’t been able to make it or eat it since 2014 when I finally acknowledged that I just couldn’t handle dairy anymore.  Before then, I used to make this killer recipe – Died and Went To Pimento Cheese Heaven! It’s not very good for you with all the cheese, cream cheese and mayo.  Served on white bread or crackers or fried into...

Weekly Menu Dec 18 #menuplanning #glutenfree #recipes

Time for the Weekly Menu! How did the last year go by so fast?  Well this is going to be a fun food week for us in the kitchen.  I have the time and Brett’s work has calmed down so we are going cook up some of our favorite dishes that are a little more complicated, like Gumbo and King Ranch Chicken Casserole.  Mmmm.  And I saw a video for spinach artichoke pizza circulating so...

Weekly Menu Dec 11 #freefrom #menuplanning

Time for the weekly menu! Hi everyone.  Well we got out the Christmas decorations and even had a snow day!  That is pretty unusual here in Texas but it was certainly fun to see snow cover everything.  This week we’ll be going to see the King and I as well as visiting with family for Christmas gift exchanges and dinner.  So I won’t be cooking a lot.  And the menu isn’t all that exciting this...

Weekly Menu Dec 4 #glutenfree #menuplanning

What’s for Dinner This Week? Okay, so this week we are bringing out some of our “healthified” comfort food favorites.  Nothing too crazy.  I really loved the Potsticker Meatball Asian Soup from the blog  i breathe, i’m hungry so we are going to make that again with ground turkey.  It takes a little work but it was so good! The Chicken Schnitzel is adapted from Thomas Keller’s recipe from Food & Wine.  We use gluten...

Weekly Menu Nov 27 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Time for the weekly menu! It’s almost December!  How did it go by so fast? New favorite goat cheese alert!  Brett found a sliced goat’s milk Dutch cheese from Trader Joe’s that is wonderful.  It melts well and has a very mild flavor.  It has been a game changer for us.  We are going to use it this week to make cheesy garlic bread sticks to go with my first attempt at a homemade French...

Menu Plan Nov 20 #glutenfree #thanksgiving

Well the holiday season is here.  Do you have your menu plan ready?  I’m super excited about Thanksgiving this year because I’ve finally worked out the kinks to making some of our traditional favorites both gluten and dairy free. We ordered a veg-fed, organic, antibiotic free bone-in turkey breast from the Wheatsville Co-Op.  I really like the way it turned out last year so I’m going to baste it again in chardonnay and Earth Balance...
