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...

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 | 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...

Chicken Tortilla Soup | Gluten-free, Dairy-Free

This chicken tortilla soup is made with roasted peppers, lots of garlic, and seasoned salt for deeper flavors.  It is dairy-free and gluten-free. 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. My favorite chicken tortilla soup came from a little taqueria called El Rey on N. Shepherd & Washington in Houston.  And I’m trying to get it just like I remember. Many years...

White Chicken Enchilada Casserole | Gluten-Free, Goat’s Milk

This clean eatin’ gluten-free white chicken enchilada casserole is made with non-GMO corn tortillas, goat’s milk pepper jack cheese, goat’s milk yogurt and Hatch green chiles!  Super simple and delicious. Gluten-Free White Chicken Enchilada Casserole I love white chicken enchiladas!  It would be kinda weird if you didn’t.  Just sayin’ … That combo of the cheese and chicken smothered in a rich sour cream and green chile sauce.  Definitely a comfort food favorite.   I miss it.  So since discovering all the ways goat’s milk has brought joy back into my life, I turned it into a casserole.  A casserole is easier because the corn tortillas we like don’t really bend that easily.  Plus I can make a large batch of this because it reheats...

Perfect Roasted Turkey à la Martha Stewart | Gluten-free, Dairy-free

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. Perfect Roasted Turkey à la Martha Stewart I originally learned to cook a stuffed turkey in those Reynold’s turkey cooking bags, which always led to a lovely and dare I say it – moist – turkey.   But the last few years I’ve been using Martha Stewart’s perfect roasted turkey method 101 and the turkey turns out insanely good.   You just can’t go wrong with a white wine and buttery baste.   We used Earth Balance butter spread or sticks (non-dairy, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO) in place of real butter.   Oh and the house smells amazing. It’s pretty easy but...

Chicken Stew with Mashies | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

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 simmered in wine are classic pot roast and beef stew.  It just makes it so lovely.  I love chicken Andouille sausage gumbo, too.   Can’t get enough! So for this dish, we used to make it with boneless chicken breasts.  I’ve never really thought I liked chicken thighs until I recently had them in a stewed...
