Gluten-Free Fried Artichoke Hearts

These gluten-free, dairy-free fried artichoke hearts are one of my absolute favorite treats! They are so good – everyone just gobbles them up. Gluten-Free Fried Artichoke Hearts I love fried foods.  Almost as much as meat and potatoes.  We fry a lot of things.  And there are several different methods.  This one is super easy! Just recently, I actually, successfully made a chicken fried steak....

Vegetarian Fried Southwestern Egg Rolls

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...

Stove Top Homemade Ranch Style Beans

Gluten-Free Ranch Style Beans I’m not sure if it is just a Texas thing, but we love our Ranch style beans.  They are usually made with pinto beans, jalapeño, garlic, lots of spices, beef broth and tomato sauce.   Savory, with a little kick of heat, Ranch beans make a perfect side dish.   They especially make a great combo with restaurant style Tex-Mex rice (also...

Shishito Peppers and Spiked Chipotle Mayo

Shishito Peppers and Spiked Chipotle Mayo

Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayo Before we get to the shishito peppers and spiked chipotle mayo recipe, I want to talk about how much I love Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayonnaise. They have several clean products made with gluten-free and nonGMO ingredients. As well as using fair trade organic cane sugar and certified humane free range egg yolks. So you get a pretty clean product that also...

Ghormeh Sabzi (Persian Herb Stew) & Basmati Rice

Ghormeh Sabzi is a traditional Persian Herb Stew made with various herbs and veggies, beans, stew beef, and dried sour limes. It is naturally gluten-free and dairy-free. For the Love of Persian Food My mother was Persian and growing up it was a huge treat when she would cook a traditional Iranian dish because she was pretty westernized and preferred not spending too much time...

smashed fingerling poatoes

Fried Smashed Fingerling Potatoes

Fried Smashed Fingerling Potatoes So these fried smashed fingerling potatoes were a very happy accident. Super crispy fried potatoes with a soft center, sprinkled with smoked paprika and fresh cilantro then served with Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayo. It was so good! Originally published July 1, 2019. Like a cross between a potato chip and French fries. These would be great to serve at a BBQ...

gluten-free fried cheese sticks made with goat cheese mozzarella

Gluten-Free Fried Goat Mozzarella Sticks

 So really this is the most basic of recipes but we are using organic ingredients to “healthify” these gluten-free fried goat cheese mozzarella sticks. Wait, What? Yes, fried goat cheese mozzarella sticks! So after giving up gluten in 2010, I gave up dairy in 2014.  And my digestive system has been on the mend in a major way.  Then last year I reintroduced goat’s milk,...

Versatile Goat Cheese Alfredo Sauce

Why make a Goat Cheese Alfredo Sauce? Besides the fact that it is just really, really good… For people with casein digestion issues, it may add a whole new option to your dinner menu if you can tolerate goat’s milk! The protein casein in goat’s milk is processed, and likely digested differently, than casein from cow’s milk. You can read a little more about that in...
