Happy New Year! #2016

Happy New Year!!! Wishing everyone a #happy, #healthy and #bountiful 2016! New Year’s Day for Brett & me is all about football (because yesterday wasn’t enough) and eating “traditional foods” for good luck, health and prosperity! Black-eyed pea salad (for #goodluck), greens (for #money and #prosperity) and pork/crumbled bacon (for #progress). Although we’ve been making black-eyed pea dishes for New Year’s Day for a long time – the idea of making the black-eyed pea salad first and...

Meet ‘n Greet The Casual Veggie Cookbook

My journey with food has evolved over a lifetime, but dramatically changed about five years ago when I finally figured out that gluten (then eventually casein/dairy) were making me really sick on top of other processed foods, chemicals and additives in the food my husband and I were eating.

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu May 25 #menuplanning

Hi everyone! Hope you are having fun on this Memorial Day weekend. We are going to hit the boardwalk for a 5-mile walk if it isn’t raining. And I’m very excited to have joined the Austin Food Blogger Alliance and look forward to meeting lots of new foodies in Austin. So I thought I would give a quick rundown of what this blog is about. I had to start eating gluten-free in 2010 and casein-free...

The Gluten-Free Weekly Menu March 9

Hi everyone!  Hope you had a nice week despite all this crazy weather. I’m really hoping we have a spring season and it doesn’t jump straight to the hot, hot, omigod it’s so hot Texas weather.
