Vegan Cheese Spiced Potato Nachos

These organic, gluten-free spiced potato nachos are made from Russet potatoes, sprinkled generously with spices and covered in vegan cheese and spicy hot jalapeños. Gluten-Free Spiced Potato Nachos One of the things that has gotten me through all of my dietary restrictions is that I used to be able to eat a lot of things.  And now I just try to recreate those comfort food...

Gluten-Free Fried Puff Pastry Beignets

Gluten-Free Puff Pastry Beignets Yes, please!  They were good.  Really, really good.   And it only took three ingredients to make these amazing little gluten-free puff pastry beignets.   We recently discovered that Schär makes a gluten-free puff pastry dough.   And it is lactose-free too (no dairy ingredients as far as I can tell).  I can’t even describe how excited I was. Right now the only...

Perfect Roasted Turkey à la Martha Stewart

I am super excited about cooking Thanksgiving dinner again! Because I’ve finally worked out the kinks to making some of our traditional favorites both gluten- and dairy-free. This turkey is roasted to perfection with a cheesecloth soaked in a wine and vegan butter mixture. Perfect Roasted Turkey à la Martha Stewart I originally learned to cook a stuffed turkey in those Reynold’s turkey cooking bags, which...

Homemade Chicken Stew with Mashies

Oh it is cold and rainy here in Austin, which has me craving all kinds of soups and stews.  I wanted to update this chicken stew recipe I’ve been making forever with new pictures and a minor adjustment to the recipe. Of course, we cook it with wine and broth and spices.  Lots of veggies, too.   Some of our other favorite soups and stews...

homemade gluten-free ranch style beans

Stove Top Homemade Ranch Style Beans

Gluten-Free Ranch Style Beans I’m not sure if it is just a Texas thing, but we love our Ranch style beans.  They are usually made with pinto beans, jalapeño, garlic, lots of spices, beef broth and tomato sauce.   They are savory with a little kick of heat and make a perfect side dish.   They especially make a great combo with restaurant style Tex-Mex...

Gluten-Free Classic Beef Stew

Meat and Potatoes! I love you. My favorite is probably this classic beef stew, or maybe pot roast, barbacoa short ribs, chicken stew with mashies, or steaks and frites… okay any type of braised beef. With potatoes. And spices. Love it all. And I will say this – I was a vegetarian for several years and we are trying to eat less meat in our...

Chipotle Curry Chicken Salad with apples, pecans, cranberries, celery and chicken

Chipotle Curry Chicken Salad

Chipotle Curry Chicken Salad Just a few simple ingredients can make such a flavorful and easy dinner.   We’ve been making a version of this for years with mayo, curry powder and cayenne pepper added to Granny Smith apples, toasted pecans, celery, dried cranberries and cooked chicken. It’s spicy and sweet and Brett really loves it. Besides prep, the only thing that really takes time...

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. Instead of butter and cream we’ll be using coconut fat and ghee.  I’ve spent a lot of time...

Love Clean Eating Taco Night

Clean Eating Gluten-free Taco Night! Well who doesn’t do taco night at their house.  Around here we have to keep it gluten-free and of course try to “healthify” this fave comfort food.  And making sure it is a clean eating gluten-free taco night. I really love using ground bison more than ground beef in recipes.  It’s leaner and doesn’t contain added hormones or antibiotics.  I...
