Classic Beef Stew #glutenfree #caseinfree

Meat and Potatoes! I love you. My favorite is probably classic beef stew, or maybe pot roast, or steaks and frites… okay any type of beef braised in stock and wine. With potatoes. And spices. Love it all. Meat and potatoes are like wine and cheese – meant for each...

The Weekly Menu Jan. 4, 2016 #glutenfree #menuplanning

The game plan for the weekly menu hasn’t changed much from last year – we’re keeping it homemade, clean and fun! We love to cook at home and choose real food that is mostly organic, non-GMO (to avoid trace glyphosate), dairy/casein free (except for the Parmesan cheese) and totally gluten...

Happy New Year! #2016

Happy New Year!!! Wishing everyone a #happy, #healthy and #bountiful 2016! New Year’s Day for Brett & me is all about football (because yesterday wasn’t enough) and eating “traditional foods” for good luck, health and prosperity! Black-eyed pea salad (for #goodluck), greens (for #money and #prosperity) and pork/crumbled bacon (for #progress). Although...

Meet ‘n Greet The Casual Veggie Cookbook

My journey with food has evolved over a lifetime, but dramatically changed about five years ago when I finally figured out that gluten (then eventually casein/dairy) were making me really sick on top of other processed foods, chemicals and additives in the food my husband and I were eating. So we made a...

Roasted Chicken Recipes #glutenfree #caseinfree

Roasted chicken and veggies is such an easy, tasty dinner dish and it takes very minimal prep. Doesn’t that look delish (the secret ingredient is sumac)!? There are so many different ways to season chicken and I’m going to share a couple of my absolute favorite spice blends with you...

This weekend we attended the Austin Wine & Food Festival and it was such an amazing time #foodie! Over the course of three days, including a pre-festival get together on Friday, we got to spend time with so many of our good friends, ate some amazing bites (there were lots...
