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...

Smoked Gouda Goat Cheese Broccoli Rice #glutenfree #meatlessmonday

Smoked Gouda Goat Cheese Broccoli Rice! This version of broccoli cheese rice is made with two kinds of goat cheese, jasmine rice, and coconut milk.  It’s perfect for those of us trying to avoid casein found in cow’s milk.  Plus who doesn’t love goat cheese?  Or creamy cheesy broccoli rice dishes? Recently, at my favorite store the goat cheese section expanded.  We found a goat cheese smoked gouda (smoked gouda is one of my very...

MTHFR & The Weekly Menu #menuplanning

MTHFR! Hi all!  Well as it turns out I have a few gene variants that would account for why I am so sensitive to chemicals, why I have been driven to eat so clean, and why changing so many things over the years has helped my health improve (filtered water, no chemical cleaners, concrete floors, using glass instead of plastic, and all the food stuff…).  As it turns out I am heterozygous for both MTHFR C677T...

Bison Shepherd’s Pie #glutenfree

Bison Shepherd’s Pie You know I love meat and potatoes!  And Shepherd’s pie is one of our favorite comfort food dishes.  And although I like it with lamb, beef or ground turkey – I absolutely love it with bison!  Have you tried it with ground bison yet? And I like lots of fluffy mashed potatoes on top.  Over the years, I’ve made the mashed potatoes several different ways.  Usually boiled Russet, Yukon gold or red...

Gluten Free Flour Tortillas #glutenfree #caseinfree

Happy Taco Tuesday!  I thought I would share this recipe for homemade gluten free flour tortillas today.  We don’t make them often because it takes a little work, but they are definitely worth it.  We like all kinds of tortillas but a nice soft flour tortilla just can’t be beat.  Here we use brown rice flour, tapioca, potato flour and starch, guar gum and coconut oil.  Pretty simple gluten free ingredients. I found the original...

Summer Pasta Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

This summer pasta salad reminds me of my mom and summer and neighborhood block parties growing up.  It was her go-to signature potluck dish, which probably came off the back of a bottle of Kraft Italian salad dressing.  ? Regardless, it was always a hit and so simple to make.  Just cooked pasta, avocado, sliced pepperoni and classic Italian dressing!  Tossed together and chilled before serving.  That’s it! My husband loves it.  There is just...
