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...

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...

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...

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...

Goat Cheese Alfredo Sauce #glutenfree

Why make a Goat Cheese Alfredo Sauce? Besides the fact that it is just really, really good… For people with casein digestion issues, it may add a whole new option to your dinner menu if you can tolerate goat’s milk! The protein casein in goat’s milk is processed, and likely digested differently, than casein from cow’s milk.  You can read a little more about that in this post.  So I was really excited to make...

Gluten Free Fried Chicken Tenders #glutenfree #caseinfree

Gluten free fried chicken!  Yum.  Who doesn’t love crispy chicken tenders? It’s one of our favorite comfort foods.  And this is such an easy recipe to prep and fry them up in a pan.  Crispy, delicious and probably a little healthier than what we used to eat. The trick is to brine the tenders in water and seasoned salt, then fry them in a mixture of coconut oil and olive oil.  Super simple.  You can...

Hollandaise and Faux Béarnaise #glutenfree #caseinfree

So… here is the recipe for gluten-free, casein-free Hollandaise and faux Béarnaise sauce I promised you!  Instead of butter and cream we’ll be using coconut fat and ghee.  I’ve spent a lot of time over the years getting it just right.  You really need a mini-prep for this because a blender is too big unless you double or triple the recipe. Since we are cooking for two, we don’t make a lot of it. But...

“Healthified” Artichoke Dip #glutenfree

So you guys — this artichoke dip is amazing!  Dreamy, creamy, clean eatin’ artichoke dip!!!  It has been far too long since we’ve indulged in artichoke dip and this “healthified” version did not disappoint.  ?? The first time I had artichoke dip was at a potluck party in graduate school in the late 1990’s.  And like I always react to delicious new foods – I started to obsess and ask who brought it, how did you...

Meatloaf Stuffed Peppers #glutenfree #caseinfree

We love to “healthify” quintessentially comfort food dishes.  And these turkey meatloaf stuffed peppers are so delicious, especially when you use a tasty BBQ sauce to top it off!  We like Rib Rack BBQ Sauce because it’s gluten free and contains only a few clean ingredients.  To make the filling we add in grated yellow squash and ground oats.  Plus a little gluten free non-GMO liquid aminos for flavor. This recipe is an adaptation of...
