Smoky Goat Cheese Pimento Cheese

Smoky Goat Cheese Pimento Cheese Wait, what? I love pimento cheese!  And I haven’t been able to make it or eat it since 2014 when I finally acknowledged that I just couldn’t handle dairy anymore.  Before then, I used to make this killer recipe – Died and Went To Pimento Cheese Heaven! It’s not very good for you with all the cheese, cream cheese and mayo.  Served on white bread or crackers or fried into...

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 Weekly Menu Dec. 12 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Oops!  The week sort of got away from me and I forgot to post our weekly menu yesterday.  I actually made the menu and we hit the grocery stores but I forgot to do the blog this week.  Well it’s Monday and here is the weekly menu for the week! We’ve been Christmas shopping, buying and wrapping presents, decorating, getting the holiday cards out and everything else done.  How about you? My mom-in-law is in...

Meatloaf Stuffed Peppers #glutenfree #caseinfree

We love to “healthify” quintessentially comfort food dishes.  And these turkey meatloaf stuffed peppers are so delicious, especially when you use a tasty BBQ sauce to top it off!  We like Rib Rack BBQ Sauce because it’s gluten free and contains only a few clean ingredients.  To make the filling we add in grated yellow squash and ground oats.  Plus a little gluten free non-GMO liquid aminos for flavor. This recipe is an adaptation of...

The Weekly Menu Dec. 5-11 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  Hope you had a great week!  We pulled out the Christmas decor and bought some new stuff, put lights up, decorated the tree, ordered Christmas cards and are feeling pretty festive! One of the things I love about coming up with a menu for the week, is that it allows us a lot of flexibility.  We ended up eating out a couple times instead of cooking last week so we are going to...

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...

The Weekly Menu July 11 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  I was so excited that my gluten free P.F. Chang-y lettuce wrap recipe and photo were published in the food section of the paper!  It was a great piece by Addie Broyles, an awesome food writer for the Austin American Statesman.  She has also created fun food related projects on Instagram like #Austin360cooks and the #theyearofbaking.  Here’s the link to the article with a great Whole30 idea for tacos from the Smoking Ho,...

The Weekly Menu July 4 ?? #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a fun summer and enjoying the 4th of July weekend!  We’ll be grilling up a couple of bison burgers and making homemade fries! So yum!  And of course it is time for the weekly menu again.  This week I’m going to add another layer of restrictions to our diet because I’m having a lot of digestive issues.  Last week we made fajitas with onions and peppers and guacamole and...

Southwestern Steak Salad #glutenfree #caseinfree

Summer time = Big Ol’ Salad time! And grilling season! So why not indulge in a steak salad loaded with veggies and a perfectly grilled steak! The nice thing is you can add whatever veggies you like or want to throw on the grill. We usually grill mushrooms and red bell peppers and now corn is in season so go ahead and grill some of that too! Whatever your heart desires. You can’t really go...

The Weekly Menu May 9 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? Hope all the moms were celebrated well! I finished up my first semester at JHU online and it was challenging but I learned so much and dusted off a few cobwebs on the old brain!  Blogging and most social media were on the back burner for a bit. I’ve got a bunch of articles to read and tweets I need to get set up soon. We did still have to...
