Cappello’s Grain Free Pasta and TX Organics 100% Grass Fed Beef: A Review and Giveaway!!

Steak Salad_1

Disclosure: Cappello’s and TX Bar Organics provided free pasta and beef products for me to review and also for this giveaway.  However, this is not a compensated post and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own. I’ve never been shy about sharing my struggle to commit to the gluten free diet after my celiac […]

Dairy-Free Basil Pesto

Dairy-Free Basil Pesto

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pesto!  Pesto screams summer to me, or better yet, my fantasy of sitting at a seaside cafe in Genoa, Italy at sunset, holding my handsome husband’s hand while a light, salt kissed breeze strokes my face as I sip on a glass of Italy’s finest vino and […]

Homemade Gluten-Free Egg-Free Orzo Pasta

Gluten-Free Orzo Stuffed Delicata Squash

I will be sharing the recipe for the Orzo Stuffed Delicata Squash in a guest post I that will be doing on Thursday, November 11th over at The Gluten Free Homemaker, for Linda’s awesome Squash Fest series.  In order to make it though, you will first need to know how to make homemade gluten-free orzo […]

Gluten-Free Chicken Marsala and Dairy-Free Pasta Alfredo

Gluten-Free Chicken Marsala with Dairy-Free Pasta Alfredo

First thing first.  “Alfredo” is probably not the right word for this sauce, at least not in a technical sense because it lacks one of the most important components of a true Alfredo sauce…Parmesan cheese (shhh…it also lacks the butter and heavy cream, but I won’t tell if you won’t tell). When my husband and […]

Gluten Free and Egg Free Pasta Dough

Gluten Free, Egg Free, Vegan Pasta Dough Recipe

First, I must apologize for the lack of noodles in the above picture.  I’m sure you can imagine the many uses for a plate full of fresh noodles that a 6 and 3 year old boy’s imagination could muster up (I’m still not sure how one ended up in the fishbowl).  I am also sorry […]

How to Cook Spaghetti Squash and Gluten-Free Pasta Sauces

Spaghetti Squash0

My gluten-free dry pasta of choice is Tinkyada (I really cannot recommend it enough).  My boys really like the spinach pasta because they think it looks like worms.  Add marinara to the picture and I am sure you can imagine how interesting my dinner table can get! Over the past several months, I have been […]

Meatballs (Gluten-Free, Corn-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free and Soy-Free)

meatballs18

Maybe I should have called them “Eggless Meatball Wonders,” or “Guiltless Meatballs,” because there are several nutritious ingredients cleverly hidden inside, and you cannot even tell! Ever since I started experimenting with “flax eggs,” I have become increasingly impressed with the results in most of my experiments.  So much so, I have found myself buried […]

Gluten-Free “Boxed” Mac and Cheese

gluten-free-boxed-mac-and-cheese

Okay, so it’s not really “Boxed” Mac and Cheese but “Bagged” Mac and Cheese just sounds weird! I have been making my own “Kraft-like” GF Mac and Cheese for a long time now, mostly because I do not care for the texture of the pasta in the GF store-bought Mac and Cheese.  The other two […]

Tomato-Free Marinara Sauce

pickled beets

This is such a cool recipe! I have not made it in a few years, in fact I forgot about until I made a post and referenced a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EE). Sam used to have a playmate with EE and I got the opportunity to play around with different combinations of foods that […]

Crab Alfredo

Gluten-Free, Crab, Alfredo, Pasta, Recipe

One of my favorite entrees at Red Lobster before I was diagnosed with CD was the Crab Alfredo. Here is my GF re-creation: During crab season, when king crab is marked down to $8.99/lb (versus the $30.00/lb something you pay at a restaurant), I buy a few pounds (okay, probably 20!) and keep it in […]
