Gluten-Free Cheesesteak Casserole #glutenfree

I used to love a good old Betty Crocker casserole for sure!  And thought wouldn’t it be fun to take some classics and adapt them to my dietary restrictions now that I can eat goat cheese.  So I’ve been on a casserole kick lately.  And you know what I haven’t had in about 7 or 8 years – a Philly Cheesesteak.  So I’m all over adapting this Betty Crocker recipe for Philly Cheese and Ground...

Weekly Menu Dec 18 #menuplanning #glutenfree #recipes

Time for the Weekly Menu! How did the last year go by so fast?  Well this is going to be a fun food week for us in the kitchen.  I have the time and Brett’s work has calmed down so we are going cook up some of our favorite dishes that are a little more complicated, like Gumbo and King Ranch Chicken Casserole.  Mmmm.  And I saw a video for spinach artichoke pizza circulating so...

Weekly Menu Nov 13 #glutenfree #recipes

Weekly Menu Time Again! Hello friends.  Well this week is going to be nice and quiet.  The calm before Thanksgiving and my husband’s birthday.  I’m getting excited about pulling out all the Christmas decor and getting festive.  But man does time seem to be flying by.  It’s been almost two years since we adopted Lizzy dog.  Seven years since going gluten free.  Over three years of publishing weekly menus and ever-changing recipes on this blog....

The Weekly Menu Aug 28-Sept 3 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Time for the weekly menu! Well friends, we now have our genetic test results from 23andMe.  And I do have two gene variants that are linked to Celiac disease.  I’m not at all surprised that I also have the MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) C677T genetic variation on one of my chromosomes (heterozygous). My initial understanding of this MTHFR variant is that it prevents the body from flushing toxins well.  Perhaps this is why I am so sensitive...

The Weekly Menu July 10-16 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  Hope you had a great holiday last week.  We got to eat well the first half of the week and I was super excited about how the pulled pork turned out.  We ended up using Franklin’s BBQ sauce instead of making our own and it was so awesome!  Pulled pork is incredibly easy to make in the oven with a nice marbled pork butt. So the second half of the week – I...

The Weekly Menu June 26 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  Weekly menu time again!  I’ve also added a printable shopping list as well. This week we are going to try the Follow Your Heart vegan sour cream since it is made with guar gum and not xanthan gum.  I’ve been really pleased with the non-dairy cheeses they’ve created so I hope the non-dairy sour cream is really good, too. We are going to use it to top the beef fajitas and then make...

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 Oct. 3 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  Time for the weekly menu + recipes.  Talk about “healthified” comfort food – this week’s menu plan is definitely going to be decadent but surprisingly easy!  October is such a crazy month – football is in full swing and the weather is almost perfect.  I love cooking soups, stews and roasts.  We usually only have beef once a week, if that, but I’ve been craving red meat again (probably because I’ve been working...

The Perfect Pot Roast #glutenfree #caseinfree

Time to make the Perfect Pot Roast! You know I love meat and potatoes!  Beef stew, chicken stew and the perfect pot roast!  Cooked in wine and broth with carrots and potatoes.  Served with homemade gravy and mashies. Just yum!  I’ve done it in the slow cooker many times, but it is so much better cooked in a Dutch oven if you’ve got the time. Because searing it is magical.  Especially because the onions (and maybe...
