Zeia Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts + Toppings

The Gluten-Free Pizza Basics Zeia Pizza Crust One of the things I love about following gluten-free friends on Instagram, is that word spreads when new gluten-free products appear or if someone honestly shares that they really liked something. That is how we found this pizza crust. So it is not sponsored, I’m just glad to share. Zeia gluten-free pizza crusts are gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, dairy-free...

Mom’s Favorite Summer Pasta Salad

Summer Pasta Salad This summer pasta salad reminds me of my mom and summer and neighborhood block parties growing up.  It was her go-to signature potluck dish because it was so easy to make.  And quite honestly, I think it came off the back of a bottle of Kraft Italian salad dressing. Just cooked pasta, avocado, sliced pepperoni and classic Italian dressing.  That’s it! My...

Gluten-Free Greek Moussaka

Homemade Greek Moussaka Recipe Greek moussaka was not something I ever thought to make at home. Until I went to the Austin Food Blogger Alliance Christmas party hosted by MezzeMe Turkish Kitchen. One of the seasonal dishes they offered us was an individual Greek moussaka. But I couldn’t try it because it is made with a béchamel sauce using flour that isn’t gluten-free. Plus the...

Restaurant Style Tex-Mex Rice

Restaurant Style Tex-Mex Rice I love Tex-Mex (a fusion of American and Mexican cuisine).  It is hard to grow up in Texas and not love it.  And we have a lot of incredible Tex-Mex restaurants here in Austin that we frequent on the regular.   I mean what is not to love about enchiladas, tacos, chips and queso, guacamole, salsas, beans and rice.  And there...
