Gluten-free, Lactose-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m so proud of myself for trying to make another gluten-free cookie from scratch.  While we can applaud the gluten-free Pillsbury dough we’ve been buying, the dough I made yesterday is even better!  As my mom always said, the key is good ingredients, and that certainly rings true with this recipe.  Also note, this recipe is doubled. Ingredients 1 cup butter-flavored Crisco 1/2 cup butter 2 1/2 cups packed C&H...

Gluten-free Dairy-free Enchiladas and Grain-free Mexican Rice

We have always used a pre-made Enchilada sauce that Francisco said tastes authentic.  Tonight was the first time we made Enchiladas in over a year, and they were DELISH!  On the side we had Mexican “Rice” which was shredded cauliflower and broccoli, seasoned as we would have seasoned traditional mexican rice. Enchiladas Ingredients 2 packets pre-made Enchilada sauce Daiya dairy-free cheddar-style shreds 4 Mission gluten-free Tortillas 2 grilled chicken breasts...

Gluten-free Dairy-free Breakfast Burritos

Since Francisco has been going to work so early, he suggested we have ready-made breakfasts for him to heat up quickly in the morning.  It’s been so nice and also saves me some time as well before work.  The last two weeks, we have made and freezed enough breakfast burritos for the entire week in under an hour. It’s great to prepare a lot all at once – more food...

Bean-Free Hummus – Baba Ganoush Eggplant Dip

I’ve mentioned before that the biggest tragedy of my life has been living without hummus.  I’ve tried several recipes and have come close, but not close enough.  I was eating out at a Greek Restaurant and saw an eggplant dip and thought that this might come close – and it did!  At least, close enough!  The consistency is a little less sticky, and a little more liquid than traditional hummus,...

Gluten-free, Dairy-Free Pulled BBQ Pork Sandwiches and Coleslaw

Like most modern families, we make all of our own food at home, with a little assistance at times from pre-made items.  There are a few we have found recently we absolutely love!   We picked up a bottle of sugar-free BBQ sauce and we always have a bottle of simple coleslaw dressing on our grocery list!  Twice in the last month, we made Pulled BBQ Pork Sandwiches with semi-home...
