The Gluten-Free Weekly Menu July 4


Happy 4th of July everyone! Hope you are having a fun day with family and friends. We are spending it with friends tonight at the Circuit of the Americas to watch the fireworks. And I’m taking a few nibbles with us to share – I bet they won’t even realize the food is sans gluten!

And the updated and re-edited version of my cookbook is almost complete – I’m so excited by the new format!!!  iBooks rocks! It should be done by next week and available as an ibook as well as downloadable as a pdf.  We are definitely doing a free promo again so stay tuned…

So here is this week’s gluten-free weekly menu:

Friday – mini carrot cake muffins; savory egg, bacon, chive and potato mini muffins; turkey sandwiches

Saturday – chili casserole (turkey chili recipe from the cookbook and a new pasta I found at HEB)



Sunday – oven baked crunchy chicken tenders with Buffalo sauce; Brussels Sprouts Salad; Sweet Potato Brownies (the eCookbook and the blog)

Monday – spicy fig strawberry glazed chicken; asparagus (eCookbook)

Tuesday – Cajun chicken; spiced potatoes; red cabbage coleslaw

Wednesdaypasta carbonara (from the blog – this does contain Parmesan so it is NOT dairy free)

Thursdayblack bean soup

Hi! I'm Deana. This food blog is all about cooking wholesome real food and developing gluten free recipes for some of our favorite comfort foods. I also create weekly menus to save time and money while reducing stress and food waste. I had to start eating gluten-free in 2010 and dairy/casein-free (except for the occasional Parmesan or goat cheese) in 2014. I'm kind of a science nerd, too. In the '90s, I earned an undergrad degree in biochemistry from The University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'em! Then followed up with a PhD in biochemistry and a law degree from the University of Houston. I recently earned a certificate in genomics/sequence analysis from Johns Hopkins University, where I also took a very cool food microbiology course.
