Good Gluten-Free Pizza with Schär Crusts

We made the best pizzas with Schär gluten-free, lactose free, non GMO pizza crusts. We used Funny Farm mozzarella goat cheese, organic pizza sauce and some awesome toppings for the win! Schär Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts I have really been into trying out new Schär gluten-free products lately. And every time I try something new I get even more excited about their gluten-free products. I have used the ciabatta bread to make Caper Basil Vinaigrette Roasted Pepper Toasts with Halloumi cheese. Then I tried the puff pastry dough when it hit the market and it was awesome. You you can find it at Central Market here in Austin. We fried it to make beignets. It’s been forever since I could indulge in a beignet. And the...

Gluten-Free Meatless Grilled Burgers

We grilled the gluten-free Beyond Meat plant-based burger patties and served them on Schär gluten-free hamburger buns and were totally impressed by both! The Beyond Burger So this isn’t a recipe or paid partnership – I just wanted to tell you how good these gluten-free meatless grilled burgers are! We are trying to eat less meat in general. And we plan a Meatless Monday dinner every week so I have lots of veggie dishes on the blog. My latest exciting copy cat was a veggie version of Southwestern Egg Rolls from Chili’s appetizer menu. There are awesome dips like pimento cheese or artichoke spinach dip. Fried goodies like fried artichoke hearts or fried mozzarella cheese sticks. Served up with a nice marinara sauce or yogurt...

Gluten-Free Bison Meatball Stroganoff

This gluten-free bison meatball stroganoff is made with gluten-free fusilli pasta, spice mixture, mushrooms, beef broth, and goat’s milk skyr (Besos) from Bee Tree Farm. Gluten-Free Bison Meatball Stroganoff Beef stroganoff was one of my favorite dishes growing up. I would request it from mom all the time. Just loved that creamy wonderful sauce. I really did love sour cream a lot. It was just as hard to give up as cheese back in 2014. So of course, I do have an old tried and true recipe for “beef” stroganoff on the blog made with ground turkey that is gluten and dairy free. We use coconut milk, beef broth and cornstarch in the spices to create the creamy sauce. Quite honestly though, I’m getting kind...

Gluten-Free Pepper Lime Beef Fajitas

A sirloin flap marinated with coconut aminos garlic sauce, lime juice, freshly ground black pepper and few simple ingredients make the perfect gluten-free, dairy-free pepper lime beef fajitas at home. Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Pepper Lime Beef Fajitas I’ve been going through a fun phase of making some of our favorite restaurant foods at home. Recently, I made a killer gluten-free chicken fried steak and the best vegan potato nachos that remind me of the fries and nacho cheese they served at Fuddruckers. And last week we made Southwestern Egg Rolls like you find on the appetizer menu at Chili’s. And one of our absolute favorites are the pepper lime beef fajitas they serve at Lupe Tortilla. But it can get a little pricey. So when we...

Southwestern Egg Rolls | Gluten-Free, Goat Cheese

Southwestern Egg Rolls I LOVE the Southwestern Egg Rolls they serve on the appetizer menu at Chili’s.  And I desperately miss being able to eat them.  But I love to take an old comfort food recipe and adjust it to fit into my dietary restrictions: gluten-free, dairy-free (except for goat cheese/milk or Parmesan), clean as possible, organic and non-GMO if possible. I had huge success with this white chicken enchilada casserole, pimento cheese, and Philly cheesesteak casserole. So these have been on the list of things to copy cat for some time now.  We finally had some time to make them and I’m so excited how they turned out! The ingredients are listed on the appetizer menu as crispy flour tortillas, chicken, black beans, corn,...

Philly Cheesesteak Casserole | Gluten-Free, Goat Cheese

Goat Cheese & Gluten-Free Casseroles I used to love a good old Betty Crocker casserole for sure!   And I’ve been on a casserole kick lately.  We made baked penne with bison.   And chicken noodle casserole. And thought wouldn’t it be fun to take some other classics and adapt them to my dietary restrictions now that I can eat goat cheese.   One of our favorites is decadent and delicious white chicken enchilada casserole made with goat cheese pepper jack and goat’s milk yogurt.   And at some point I’ll update the recipe for King Ranch chicken casserole we make with vegan cheese using goat pepper jack or the Dutch cheese slices instead. But know what I haven’t had in years – a Philly...

gluten-free chicken fried steak

Gluten-Free Chicken Fried Steak

This classic comfort food, chicken fried steak, is made gluten-free using brown rice flour. And instead of dipping in a traditional buttermilk and egg wash, we substitute goat’s milk yogurt, water and eggs! Love Fried Comfort Foods I haven’t had chicken fried steak in forever. Recently we went to a 100% gluten-free restaurant called Wilder Wood Restaurant and Bar with a ton of classic comfort foods on the menu. And I really wanted to order the chicken fried steak. But they make it with buttermilk. Chicken fried steak is usually dipped in flour, then into a buttermilk and egg wash, then back into the flour. And I can’t digest cow’s milk normally. So I went with the burger and fries, which were amazing! But you...

BBQ Chicken tacos made healthier using clean ingredients

Healthified BBQ Chicken Tacos | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Clean up your Taco Tuesdays by using organic ingredients to make these amazing gluten-free and dairy-free healthified BBQ chicken tacos. Healthified BBQ Chicken Tacos Yep, we’ve gone and “healthified” Taco Tuesdays! Clean eating means different things to different people, but for us it is eating lean meats and clean organic veggies to avoid pesticides. Check out the latest 2019 list of Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen from EWG. And we try to avoid anything else that may contain glyphosate (soy, corn, wheat, oats, canola, sugar, and the list goes on – it is hard to keep up as they now use it as a desiccant, too). I also have to eat gluten-free and mostly dairy-free (goat’s milk is okay and so it a little aged...

Gluten-Free Teriyaki Chicken Kabob Skewers  One of the big things and reason for this blog is that we take classic comfort foods and make them gluten-free. It’s easy with a recipe like this to make sure that it is also naturally dairy-free, too.

spicy chicken spaghetti made with red sauce and jalapeños

Spicy Chicken Spaghetti | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

This recipe for spicy chicken spaghetti is super easy to make and packs a nice kick of spice from the jalapeños!  It is gluten-free, dairy-free and delicious. Spicy Chicken Spaghetti So I originally posted this recipe for spicy chicken spaghetti way back in March of 2015.  But I really thought it needed a little more love so it is getting an update with some new pictures and easy tips for success! I originally tasted this spicy chicken spaghetti at a friend’s house many, many years ago.  Her father, the Judge, made it for us while I was staying at their house for the weekend.  I couldn’t stop raving about it.  So he finally revealed the secret was adding pickled jalapeños to the spaghetti sauce.  OMG...
