Dairy-Free Hollandaise and Faux Béarnaise

Hollandaise and Faux Béarnaise So… here is the recipe for gluten-free, casein-free Hollandaise and faux Béarnaise sauce I promised you!  I love Hollandaise sauce but can’t eat the regular stuff anymore.   So we’ve adjusted it to be gluten-free and casein-free yet still rich, creamy and decadent.

Easy Roasted Mesquite Smoked Asparagus

Grilled Smoked Asparagus One of our favorite restaurants, District Kitchen + Cocktails, serves the most delicious seasonal and locally sourced food.  And so much of it can be made gluten-free.   Right now asparagus is plentiful and in season and of course on their menu.   I love asparagus because it is a detoxifier (glutathione), feeds the gut bacteria (inulin) and contains lots of vitamins...
