Bison Enchilada Soup #glutenfree #dairyfree

Bison Enchilada Soup I love the flavor of enchilada sauce, but sometimes I don’t want all the calories that come with eating enchiladas.  Plus the cold weather and my ridiculous allergies this time of year (cedar and mold) are really making me crave soup.  So why not make a bison enchilada soup!  That sounds really good, right? And, oh it was! I like to use bison because it is a much leaner meat that ground...

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Oct. 26 #menuplanning

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great week. Our little staycation has come to an end since the husband’s project starts up again this week, but it has been a lot of fun. We even made it out to the Zilker Botanical Gardens last week. There were so many steps to climb it was a great outdoor “workout”. We found a few butterflies and enjoyed the historical buildings and dinosaur information – who knew? I’m...

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. 7 #menuplanning

Happy Labor Day! It’a been a fun and busy long weekend (except watching the Horns play what I think was supposed to be a football game – yikes!?) and we’ve still got to get to the grocery store tonight. I’ve got a few fun blog posts in the works, too. So this week’s menu is going to be short and sweet. Don’t miss out on the Kindle eCookbooks while they are on sale (99 cents &...

The Gluten Free Weekly Menu Aug. 17 #menuplanning

There isn’t too much going on this week – just trying to stay cool and hoping we get some rain. We had fun cooking with the Hatch chiles last week. I learned that the secret to any Hatch chile dish is fire-roasting the chiles. You want the paper-like skins to turn black and easily peel off, deseed and chop. I also didn’t know there were hot and mild versions of the Hatch chile. A few hot ones got...

The Gluten-Free Weekly Menu July 27 #menuplanning

This week pork tenderloin is on sale at the HEB so we are going to make one of my all-time favorites: Apple Cider-Brined Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Organic Carrots & Pink Lady Apples. I make the apple cider by cooking down apple juice (make sure it is gluten-free and clean – I like Martinelli’s) with cinnamon, honey and cloves. I remove the cloves, then add the brine ingredients and let the pork marinate overnight. The...

The Gluten-Free Weekly Menu July 13 #menuplanning

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great week full of summer time fun with friends and family. We got a chance to see some live music yesterday at Guero’s Taco Bar with a lot of great friends. The band, Los Aztex, was really fantastic! And check out this lady dancing while balancing a pot of flowers on her head! 🙂 What a fun place to hang out at on South Congress! The restaurant has a...

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...

The Gluten-Free Weekly Menu April 13

Since April is my birthday month, to celebrate I’m giving away free copies of the iBooks version of all my eCookbooks (for the iPad or Mac). I really love the iBooks versions and use them all the time. Just shoot me an email at deana@theweeklymenubook.com and let me know which one you want or if you’d like all three. I’ll send you a reply with the PROMO codes and instructions how to redeem them on...

Roasted Vegetable, Kale & Chicken Soup #glutenfree #caseinfree

This roasted vegetable kale chicken soup is so delicious, nutritious and naturally gluten and casein free because it is made with whole real food and yummy spices! Someone suggested adding white beans to my original version and I love it with the beans (plus white beans are another way to add calcium to my diet). And I’ve added a few more spices over the years to added more depth of flavor. I avoid canned goods...
