Eating pad thai in a restaurant might be hard if cross contamination is a concern.

Most pad thai sauces contain soy sauce and more likely than not, that soy sauce contains gluten.

If you live in the bay area, access to rice (more…)

One thing that can be missed on a gluten free (gf) diet is a burrito.

One idea is to leave the tortilla out of the picture entirely and just focus on the filling.

This "deconstructed" burrito casserole is healthy, family-friendly, and versatile. Once the rice and meat are cooked, it only takes minutes to assemble and about 20 minutes to heat. Dinner is served! (more…)

Was tuna casserole one of your favorite childhood meals? I just learned that my husband is wild for this classic comfort food.

Gluten Free Veggie and Meat Chili Recipe

February 7th, 2011 by Amy Fothergill

Amy's Chili...mmmmm! :)

This is a variation of a “veggies on the verge” soup. When you make chili, it’s a good way to use up some of those vegetables in the fridge you are not sure what to do with. Go ahead and throw in carrots, sweet potatoes and celery if you have it. It will all taste good once it’s cooked. The extra vegetables are not necessary but certainly add nutrients to the mix. You can also use this recipe to make tamale pie.

Read through the recipe first; it’s easier to chop the onion and while that cooks, chop the other vegetables, hardest vegetables first to softest last. Serve it by itself, over brown rice, or even polenta for a complete (more…)
