Pesto Chicken with Asparagus #glutenfree

I love asparagus. It’s a natural liver detoxifier and rich in vitamins and nutrients. We are growing some in the backyard of our rental home. It’s only the second season so I haven’t harvested very much yet. Next year we should have a good crop and it’ll be there for the people that move in after us. Kind of a nice pay it forward. There are so many different ways to prepare it, but I prefer...

Hawaiian Pizza #glutenfree

This is the second pizza crust recipe I’ve posted, but I like it better because because it is dairy-free as well as gluten-free. I started with a pizza crust recipe from Ina Garten on the Food Network.  I cut the proportions in half and used Better Batter gluten-free flour. Crust Recipe 5 oz warm filtered water 1/2 Tbsp local honey 1 1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil 2 1/2 Tsp active dry yeast 2 cups...

Turkey Meatball Sandwiches #glutenfree

March 7, 2015: I’m updating this blog for turkey meatball sandwiches because I’ve tweaked both the bread and meatball recipe over the years and wanted to blog the cleaner updated versions. The picture above is so old and it’s funny because I could never eat that much for dinner today, but it’s nice to see how far we’ve come in our food journey (we used to eat these all the time and now it’s a...

Cauliflower Crab Cakes #glutenfree

Even though a few Pinterest recipes I’ve tried have been major fails (baked cheese sticks, anyone? ;)) – others have been worth the effort.  A few weeks ago, we used a Pinterest recipe for Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes. They were tasty, filling, and perfect for vegetarian night paired with a kale salad. Make them gluten-free by swapping out smashed up Rice Chex for panko (and adding about one cup instead of a half cup).  I also...

Gluten-free Dairy-free “Beef” Stroganoff

Gluten-free Dairy-free “Beef” Stroganoff One of my favorite dishes growing up was beef stroganoff.  I used to beg my mom to make if for dinner.  I think she used to make it with french onion soup mix and sour cream.  I’m not really sure. But I’ve tried to recreate a gluten-free dairy-free “beef” stroganoff making it a little healthier by using ground turkey instead of beef.  It is a very easy recipe and can all...

Chicken & Broccoli Cheesy Rice #glutenfree

This recipe for Chicken & Broccoli Cheesy Rice is a gluten-free adaptation and modification of an original recipe for “Chicken ‘Divine’” from the Bride & Groom First and Forever Cookbook.  This cookbook is amazing and most of the recipes can easily be converted to gluten-free! At first I used quinoa pasta to replace the regular pasta, but then switched to brown rice. Either will work in this recipe. Just cook according to directions before adding...

Pepperoni Pizza #glutenfree

One of the things I have desperately missed is a decent pepperoni pizza.  After trying many different flour combinations for the pizza crust, nothing really tasted right.  Of course, when I started using Better Batter gluten-free flour, it did the trick.  Not only does it make a delicious pizza crust, but the texture is perfect!  I just had to share… Pizza Crust (I followed the Better Batter recipe for Super Versatile Bread Dough with some minor adjustments):...

Lobster Mac and Cheese #glutenfree

Although I don’t eat fish or seafood 99.999% of the time because of mercury or possible dioxins, plastics or other contaminants absorbed into fish or seafood, this recipe is one of the rare occasions that I use lobster meat.  I really like the sweetness of the lobster with the Applewood smokiness of the cheese.  It is really decadent! 1 box Quinoa pasta (8 oz), cooked 2 cups Lactose-free whole milk 4 tbsp unsalted butter, divided...
