Gluten Free Fried Chicken Tenders

Gluten Free Fried Chicken Tenders Gluten free fried chicken!  Yum.  Who doesn’t love crispy chicken tenders? It’s one of our favorite comfort foods.  And this is such an easy recipe to prep and fry them up in a pan.  Crispy, delicious and probably a little healthier than what we used to eat. The trick is to brine the tenders in water and seasoned salt, then...

The Weekly Menu Jan 30, 2017

Well it’s time for the weekly menu Jan 30 – Feb 5.  I need a lot of comfort food this week. Of course, it is all gluten free, mostly non-GMO and organic… It has been tougher than usual for me to find gratitude these days with the world feeling like it is imploding.  But I will say that I’m grateful for people standing up for...

BBQ Meatloaf Stuffed Peppers

Healthified Meatloaf Stuffed Peppers 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...

Thanksgiving Weekly Menu 2016 | Gluten-Free

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...

The Weekly Menu Aug 8, 2016

Ugh, August.  It’s too hot. But one of the fun things about this time of year is that Hatch Festival is here again.  It is such a great way to change up those staple recipes.  So we’re going #Hatch on everything the next two weeks! And we are slowly creeping back into football season again.  So excited about watching the Horns play this year.  Always start off...

The Weekly Menu July 11, 2016

Hi everyone! Time for the gluten-free, low FODMAP weekly menu July 11! So my digestive system is actually doing a little better on the low FODMAP diet (still also gluten, totally dairy and casein free except for the Parmesan).  I’ve learned a lot more about food this week, too: basically all my spice blends have garlic or onion powder in them – so I need...
