Gluten Free Recipes & Menu Plans

The Weekly Menu May 29 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!   I’m working on a new recipe I’m pretty excited about and should have it ready on Tuesday.  You know how much I miss queso and cheesy goodness, well I may have an actual substitute for us folks that can’t eat dairy!  A faux queso. So here is the weekly menu for next week… The Weekly Menu It’s mostly non-GMO or organic, and totally “free from” gluten, dairy/casein (except goat cheese or...

The Weekly Menu May 22 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  It’s time for the weekly menu again.  We have some oldies but goodies planned for the week.  Yum! So I officially graduate with a 4.0 from Johns Hopkins University this week and a Certificate in Genomics and Sequence Analysis.  And I can actually assemble short sequence reads into genomes!?  Crazy cool.  Now the job search has begun… Meanwhile, I love cooking healthy meals with lean proteins, healthy grains and veggies while finding new recipes...

The Weekly Menu May 15 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful moms and daughters!  It’s hard to believe my mom passed 24 years ago and I’ve lived more than half of my life without her.  I still miss her but it is especially weird that I am nearing the age that she died. But I’m lucky to have had her for as long as I did and I certainly wouldn’t be the person I am today without her unconditional...

The Weekly Menu May 8 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a great week.  Things have been really nice the last few weeks catching up with great friends and eating out at restaurants around town.  Recently we’ve been to Grizzelda’s, Alcomar, Manuel’s and Lambert’s Downtown BBQ. It has become so easy to eat gluten free around here!  Honestly, most places just point out the few things you can’t have and whether the fryer is dedicated or cross contaminated.  Lots of...

The Weekly Menu May 1 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone! Hope your week is starting off great!  Well we had a blast at the annual Food & Wine Fest here in Austin. Such a great group of friends that get together over the last 10 years for the festivities.  It’s pretty awesome.  And there were so many bites that were gluten free it was really nice.  SO much wine and cucumber vodka – I should probably detox. 🙂  Definitely having a little booch...

The Weekly Menu April 24 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Well it’s finally time for the Austin Food & Wine Festival again. ?? And I’ve only got one more week and one final exam to go and I’m done with the genomics certificate school stuff!  ? And it’s my birthday. ?? 45 years old.  Wow!  So much to reflect on and to look forward to as well. And the garden is doing really well this year, too.  I have a lot to be grateful for, including my wonderful husband...

The Weely Menu April 17 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi all!  Guess what time it is?  Weekly menu time!  For the most part, we’ve got pretty simple gluten and dairy free dinners planned for the week.  But I’ve been craving lasagna.  It’s probably been about 4 years since I’ve had lasagna.  And since I’ve brought goat cheese back into my diet because the casein is digested differently than cow’s milk casein, we thought we might give it a shot. I really like the goat’s...

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...

The Weekly Menu April 10 #glutenfree #menuplanning

I’m pretty excited about the gluten free weekly menu plan for this week.  It’s full of flavor and spice and everything nice.  🙂  When you are limited with dietary restrictions, spices make everything better.  I love the bulk organic spices we find at Wheatsville Food Co-op. Of course, almost everything is also non-GMO, organic and dairy free (except for the Parmesan cheese)!  I really love that we can find so many clean and healthy options at...

The Weekly Menu April 3 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Alright, alright, alright.  It’s weekly menu time again.  And my favorite month and time of the year is here!  I love April.  A few grapes are growing on the Zinfandel vine, the roses are blooming, my cucumber vines are growing strong.  Grow little plants grow!  ???  I love having cukes fresh off the vine. Let’s just hope the Wine & Food Festival doesn’t get rained out this year.  And that I finish out the school...
