King Ranch Chicken Casserole #glutenfree #caseinfree

We love King Ranch Chicken Casserole!  I used to make the Homesick Texan’s recipe all the time before I had to give up gluten and then eventually casein/dairy.  It’s fancy and takes a little more work (because you make the sauce instead of using cream of mushroom soup). Well actually a lot of work and a lot of dishes are going to get dirty, but it is sooooo totally worth it. Now that I’ve tried...

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Oct. 19 #menuplanning

We finally made it out to a Johnson’s Backyard Garden Farmer’s Market! We bought these beautiful organic sweet peppers, lettuce and cherry tomatoes. Of course most is going into salads, but I’m looking forward to using some of the sweet peppers in the turkey and veggie chili tonight! Although, I wasn’t totally convinced every veggie has to be organic – I’m really starting to notice a big difference in the way my body digests organic versus conventional...

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Oct. 5 #menuplanning

Can you believe it is already October? And what a lovely October it is so far (except for my Longhorns – it is just going to take some time…)! October is the time of year to break out the fall soups, stews and chili recipes. So this weekly menu is loaded up! We make it all from fresh vegetables and lean protein (no canned food helps avoid BPA and too much sodium). ???? Since it has been gorgeous...

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Sept. 14 #menuplanning

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great week! September is quickly becoming a very busy month. I’m in the process of applying to a post graduate program – I’ll let you know more about it when I’ve got the application in and if I’m accepted. It’s quite a strange and happy feeling. I’ve been through so much in my life already but I’m so very excited about the future and a potential new career. Anyway,...

The Gluten Free Menu Plan for Aug. 24 #menuplanning

I have FREE promo codes for copies of my eCookbooks made for iBooks on the Mac or iPad! Email me at deana@theweeklymenubook.com if you are interested!!! I haven’t figured out how to do the promos for Google Play and Google Books yet. The last few years have been quite a journey into this mad world of food. My husband and I went from eating out often to cooking at home almost all the time. We...

The Gluten-Free Weekly Menu Aug. 10 #menuplanning #hatchfest

Hatch chiles are here! #hatchfest So I’m making a few easy recipes this week! Every year (for the last 20 years) Central Market brings these New Mexico chiles to Texas for a few weeks for Hatch Fest (you can find them at HEB, too). And just because I have to eat with major dietary restrictions, doesn’t mean that I’m going to miss out on the fun! I really like the Hatch chiles and they are a great...

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...

BBQ Chicken Tacos & Slaw #glutenfree #caseinfree

We live in Austin, Texas so it shouldn’t be surprising that we eat a lot of tacos. Either out or at home. They are so easy to make and the combos are endless. And it’s a great way to use up extra stuff in the fridge. These super tasty BBQ chicken tacos with cabbage coleslaw combine a little sweet and spice and are naturally casein and gluten-free. Also keep in mind that not all corn...

Taco Bowls #glutenfree #caseinfree

We have been making our own taco shells and tostada shells from corn tortillas for a long time (make sure to use gluten-free, wheat-free corn tortillas) – but this is the first time we tried taco bowls and I love them!  Why didn’t we make these before?  They are easier to eat than a tostada and hold more stuff than a taco. They were so easy to make, too. I used some oven-safe ramekins from...

Chicken or Veggie Fajitas #glutenfree #caseinfree

Fajita Seasoning is one of my absolute favorite go-to spices to have on hand in the pantry. We use it for salad dressings, chicken or veggie fajitas. Sometimes it adds a nice kick to breakfast tacos, too. Here are few of my favorite recipes to give you a little inspiration: Fajita Seasoning 2 tsp chili powder 1 tsp salt 1 tsp smoked paprika 1 tsp raw cane sugar 1/2 tsp onion powder 1/2 tsp garlic...
