The Weekly Menu Aug. 1

Hi everyone!  Hope you had a great week. Time to plan the weekly menu! Also, I’ve been playing in the kitchen the last two weeks and experimenting with some new recipes.  Some are for a contest I was invited to enter using Kerbey Lane Pancake Mix.  Kerbey Lane Cafes are local (since 1980) and kind of famous for those pancakes.  Now they sell the mixes and you can use it to make other goodies, too!  I picked the gluten free gingerbread flavor to see what I could come up with.  And OMG the house smells amazing!  Recipes coming soon!

I’ve also been trying to work on dairy/casein free versions of some of our favorite comfort foods – you know like cheesy casseroles and twice baked potatoes.  We haven’t had a King Ranch Chicken Casserole in years and I really wanted to see if I could use some of the tricks and dairy free products I have found to pull it off.  It was so good!  I honestly couldn’t believe it, but YAY!  I’m working on posting the recipe soon, too.  It’s not an easy throw in the slow cooker kind of thing – but it’s worth the work. ?

And I’ve got a knock off recipe for the amazing smoked coleslaw we had at Freedmen’s BBQ the other day.  Because I could eat that all day long.

So here is the mostly organic, nonGMO (because of glyphosate not the technology), gluten free, dairy/casein free weekly menu for next week!

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.
