Veggie Paella #glutenfree #caseinfree

I was inspired by Giada’s recipe and wanted to test my hand at this amazing veggie paella. We are always looking for interesting meatless meals to have at least once a week #MeatlessMonday. I’ve made this several times and altered some of the vegetables – not a fan of radishes but love cauliflower seasoned with bright spices. You could probably use any vegetables you like and it’s a great way to get rid of some...

Chicken or Veggie Fajitas #glutenfree #caseinfree

Fajita Seasoning is one of my absolute favorite go-to spices to have on hand in the pantry. We use it for salad dressings, chicken or veggie fajitas. Sometimes it adds a nice kick to breakfast tacos, too. Here are few of my favorite recipes to give you a little inspiration: Fajita Seasoning 2 tsp chili powder 1 tsp salt 1 tsp smoked paprika 1 tsp raw cane sugar 1/2 tsp onion powder 1/2 tsp garlic...

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing & Chicken #glutenfree #caseinfree

Bacon makes everything better (uncured, nitrate-, nitrite-free bacon of course)! Spinach salad is a great way to eat lots of fresh spinach and lean proteins dressed with Alton Brown’s delicious warm bacon vinaigrette! And of course, it is gluten-free and casein-free, too (make sure the bacon and mustard are gluten-free). I used to buy boneless skinless chicken breast and cut them up into pieces (usually 1 1/2 breasts per meal) depending on what I was making....

Cauliflower Crab Cakes II #glutenfree #caseinfree

My original recipe for cauliflower crab cakes (http://theweeklymenubook.com/2013/04/09/gluten-free-cauliflower-crab-cakes/) gets a lot of Pinterest traffic and is a pretty tasty treat so I thought I would share a tweaked version we made without the cheese and with a few more spices so you could enjoy the casein-free version of cauliflower crab cakes II.

It’s almost Thanksgiving!

It’s almost Thanksgiving and I’m trying out a few new recipes this week.  Do you like to experiment with new sides and dishes or are you a traditionalist who sticks with your tried and true recipes? Over the last 20 something years, one of the few things that I knew how to cook was a Thanksgiving dinner.  My mom taught me her recipes before she died and I made them year after year for family...

Ghormeh Sabzi (Persian Herb Stew) & Basmati Rice #glutenfree #caseinfree

Ghormeh Sabzi – A Persian Herb Stew My mother was Persian and growing up it was a huge treat when she would cook a traditional Iranian dish because she was pretty westernized and preferred not spending too much time in the kitchen.  Oh but when my grandmother would visit, we would feast the entire time – she loved to cook all day.  We had several favorites and it was amazing how much work she would...
