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...

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...

Faux Queso #glutenfree #caseinfree

What is a faux queso? Sometimes when you love to eat and cook, something magical can happen in the kitchen. Impromptu and divine. While Brett and I were making King Ranch Chicken Casserole and waiting for it to bake, we snacked on the extra corn tortilla scraps and used them to wipe up some of the leftover sauce in the Dutch oven. And he said “this totally tastes like queso!”  And it actually did –...

Roasted Sweet & Spicy Cabbage #glutenfree

Roasted Sweet & Spicy Cabbage This roasted sweet & spicy cabbage has quickly turned into one of our favorite side dishes!  And it is so easy to make you don’t even need a recipe.  Basically, it is just organic cabbage tossed in ghee and your favorite hot sauce, roasted, then drizzled with maple syrup. We like to use a local brand of hot sauce called Yellowbird Jalapeño Sauce but there are so many gluten free...

“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...

Freedmen’s Inspired Smoked Cabbage Slaw #glutenfree #caseinfree

I know the BBQ steals the spotlight in this pic from Freedmen’s Bar & Smokehouse  but that grilled cabbage slaw in the corner was amazing!  It was smoky and zesty and I couldn’t stop eating it.  I really enjoyed hanging out at Freedmen’s and a chance to check out west campus again (during the summer when it wasn’t super crazy).  I used to live down the street when I was an undergrad at UT and...

Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus #glutenfree #caseinfree

I love me some hummus! And I really like it flavorful and spicy. ? We’ve been buying a new flavor from the store – Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus – and because I usually devour it in two days it was starting to get a little expensive.  So it was time to try to make it at home.  I like to add white beans to the hummus to make it a little creamier plus white beans are high in...

Homemade Red Salsa #glutenfree #caseinfree

Do you have a favorite recipe for red salsa? We’ve been playing around with different variations of homemade organic red salsa and I really like this one! It is easy and has a little kick to it. Since we are trying to keep it mostly organic we’ve used Muir Glen whole tomatoes, fresh organic peppers, onion, and garlic. Of course, you can add more peppers and different types to adjust the heat level, too.  We’ve also...

Asian Fried Rice #glutenfree #caseinfree #meatlessmonday

Hello Meatless Monday! So Asian Fried Rice? It’s been done before. Why blog it again? I’m sharing this recipe because fried rice is a challenge for me and it actually turned out really well!  And trust me that I’ve tried to make ‘Chinese Fried Rice’ with old cooked rice and cold rice – all the ways they’ve said to make fried rice – but it just never works for me. I get mush, especially with Basmati rice...

Just in Time for Thanksgiving! Good Gluten Free Stuffing

It’s Time for Some Good Gluten Free Stuffing I didn’t think it was possible, but the taste and fluffy texture of this gluten free stuffing (it’s casein & dairy free too) is just like the real thing using such a simple recipe and one little trick! I had to give up gluten around Thanksgiving of 2010.  It was always my favorite side dish, so I tried a lot of the gluten free stuffing mixes and...
