Homemade Baked Bison Shepherd’s Pie

Bison Shepherd’s Pie You know I love meat and potatoes!  And Shepherd’s pie is one of our favorite comfort food dishes.   And although I like it with lamb, beef or ground turkey – I absolutely love it with bison!  Have you tried it with ground bison yet?

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.

Gluten-Free Cherry Nectarine Crumble

Gluten-Free Cherry Nectarine Crumble I LOVE summer fruit. Especially, stone fruits like cherries, nectarines, peaches, apricots, and plums. The abundance of summer fruit is awesome. But sometimes I can’t eat it all before it starts to really ripen. But that has actually turned into the best part. Because that is when it is perfect for making a fruit crumble or healthy sorghum millet muffins. I’ve...

Like a cross between a potato chip and French fries. These would be great to serve at a BBQ...

Homemade Chicken Tortilla Soup

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...

Gluten-Free Fried Chicken Tenders and Okra

And instead of dipping in a traditional buttermilk and egg wash, we substitute goat milk yogurt, water and eggs for absolute fried chicken perfection. We Really Love Fried Foods! Isn’t fried chicken and okra such a classic comfort food? Before I had to start eating gluten-free we loved picking...
