Healthy Gluten Free Snacks #glutenfree #comfortfood

The Weekly Menu Oct. 31 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  It is time to for the weekly menu again! It’s so crazy to think that this is the 100th weekly menu I’ve posted on the blog or that I even have a food blog.  I had to learn to cook so we could handle my spiraling-out-of-control dietary issues....

The Weekly Menu Aug. 8 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Ugh, August.  It’s too hot.  But one of the fun things about this time of year is that Hatch Festival is here again.  It is such a great way to change up those staple recipes.  So we’re going #Hatch on everything the next two weeks! And we are slowly creeping back into...

I can’t believe this is the last casein free, gluten free weekly menu of the year! It has gone by so fast! I’ve had a lot of fun coming up with the weekly menus and tracking our journey, trying new recipes, meats (bison) and veggies (kohlrabi) while learning and aspiring...

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Nov. 9 #menuplanning
