It’s a casserole dish that tastes like a veggie pizza! Perfect for Meatless Monday dinners and a great way to use up some extra veggies. I found the original version of this recipe in the Old Farmer’s Almanac Garden Fresh Cookbook.  But of course, I made a few adjustments to make...

Asian Chicken Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

You know I love a salad piled high with veggies #EatTheRainbow! I really think it is the best way to fill my body with nutrients, minerals and all the goodies you get from fresh veggies. And I’m always looking for ways to use up the rest of a head of cabbage. And in this case we had a little extra red lettuce so we added it in with the Romaine, too. Add in a little lean...

Spiced Zucchini Muffins #glutenfree #caseinfree

Summer = zucchini, zucchini, zucchini! I’m actually not a huge fan of it sautéed or grilled but always love baked zucchini goodies, like zucchini bread or chocolate muffins – see my delicious gluten-free recipe for chocolate zucchini muffins, too. Yum! There are so many recipes for zucchini bread out there, but I really wanted to try this spiced version from Martha Stewart because of all the spices in it. We love spice! So I made...

Happy 4th of July! Hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend.  What are you making this weekend?  We’re cooking up some Asian turkey burgers. This is such an easy and scrumptious recipe for gluten-free, dairy/casein-free turkey burgers packed full of flavor!  Made with a little GF soy sauce or substitute coconut aminos if avoiding soy sauce, Thai red curry paste, chives or green onions, salt and pepper – that’s it!  If you like a little...

Mango Chutney Chicken Salad #glutenfree #dairyfree

This mango chutney chicken salad is so flavorful and packed with all types of nutritional goodies – cultured probiotics; good spices like turmeric, cayenne and pink salt; vitamins and minerals from the mango, fresh greens, seeds and nuts. There are so many layers of flavor, especially from the mango chutney! And even though my husband doesn’t usually like the dishes heavy with turmeric as much as I do, he really liked this one! Perfect for...

Thai Beef Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

As promised, here is the recipe for Thai beef salad! It is such a delicious dinner full of flavor and fresh ingredients (ginger and garlic). The original recipe came from Ellie Krieger on Food Network. To make this gluten-free use GF soy sauce and Thai red curry paste. All of the other ingredients are naturally gluten and casein free. Make sure the cashews are safe, too. This salad is a great use of fresh basil from...

Chicken Tortilla Soup #glutenfree #caseinfree

Ahhhh, chicken tortilla soup. Where do I begin? To use one of my dad’s favorite words – I am somewhat of a chicken tortilla soup “connoisseur”. I have probably ordered it at every Mexican restaurant or hotel that I’ve been to since I first discovered it more than 20 years ago. I’ve also grown picky. I don’t like it green or thickened or with a giant corn cob in it. So I would like to tell...

Spiced Roasted Chicken #glutenfree

Spiced Roasted Chicken (seasoned salt & sumac) with Roasted Veggies Roasted chicken is such an easy, tasty dinner dish and it takes very minimal prep.  Especially, if you also roast some seasonal vegetables in the oven with a little EVOO, salt and pepper.  Doesn’t that look delish?  The red color comes from the spice sumac.  There are so many different ways to season chicken and I’m going to share a couple of my absolute favorite...

Eggplant Chicken Parmesan #glutenfree

One of our favorite indulgences used to be fried chicken, which I had to give up when I went gluten-free and started eating better. Now we make chicken coated with gluten-free rice chex (a generic version that doesn’t contain BHT) that is baked or lightly fried in olive oil.  Or you could skip the bread crumbs and use a gluten free flour instead (like Bob’s Red Mill all purpose – bean blend or oat flour).  In...
