Menu Plan Nov 20 #glutenfree #thanksgiving

Well the holiday season is here.  Do you have your menu plan ready?  I’m super excited about Thanksgiving this year because I’ve finally worked out the kinks to making some of our traditional favorites both gluten and dairy free. We ordered a veg-fed, organic, antibiotic free bone-in turkey breast from the Wheatsville Co-Op.  I really like the way it turned out last year so I’m going to baste it again in chardonnay and Earth Balance...

The Weekly Menu Sept. 4-10 #freefrom #menuplanning

Time for The Weekly Menu It’s football season!  Still so excited to see the Longhorns play this year.  We always start off with such high expectations. ?? Also, I’m finding out all kinds of things about my genetic variants.  I ran a program from Found My Fitness to look for certain SNPs in my raw 23andMe data.  The results were pretty interesting.  I have another marker for an increased risk of Celiac disease (so 5...

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 Feb. 6 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Happy Super Bowl Sunday everyone!  I’m looking forward to this game and of course all the commercials.  We have our gluten free spread ready to go and nibble on all day.  Yay! School is getting pretty busy for me – I have a lot of reading, a paper due, a presentation and a mid-term coming up.  That usually means less time in the kitchen cooking. So I like to plan things that are easy and...

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 Weekly Menu Nov. 28 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi all!  Hope all of you celebrating Thanksgiving had a lovely week.  So have you started watching Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party yet?  I really dig it.  Martha made her perfect roasted turkey on the show and so we tried it out this year.  It was the best turkey I’ve done so far!  Partly because the turkey was organic, free range, nonGMO veg fed… but also the basting! We covered the turkey breast with...

Thanksgiving Weekly Menu #glutenfree #realfood #menuplanning

Hi all!  How is it already time for Thanksgiving again?  Wow!  We haven’t cooked a turkey the last few years but I’m actually looking forward to doing it again this year.  One of the things my mom taught me before she died was how to cook an entire Thanksgiving feast.  We do it a little different now because of my dietary restrictions and sensitivities, but I’m excited to feel good enough to cook a big...

The Weekly Menu Aug. 1 #glutenfree #menuplanning

Hi everyone!  Hope you had a great week. Time to plan the weekly menu! Also, I’ve been playing in the kitchen the last two weeks and experimenting with some new recipes.  Some are for a contest I was invited to enter using Kerbey Lane Pancake Mix.  Kerbey Lane Cafes are local (since 1980) and kind of famous for those pancakes.  Now they sell the mixes and you can use it to make other goodies, too!...
