Sweet Incredible Banana Bread- Gluten Free

image

I was walking through my kitchen and noticed I had 3 very ripe banana’s in the fruit basket.
The first thing that popped in my head was banana bread! Oh how I missed banana bread- I hadn’t had any since I went gluten free 3 years ago.
I decided it was time to change that. I was going to have banana bread and so was my daughter!
I had basically just placed an order for a gluten free, dairy/casein free banana bread and now I had to figure out how to do it. Continue reading

Strawberry Coconut Cream Cake

For months I have been trying to find a cake- including frosting recipe that the whole family could enjoy. With Giada being Casein/dairy free on top of both her and I being gluten free I thought it would be a pretty tall order to fill.

Turns out I was wrong! It just took me stepping out of my comfort zone for a second and the result was amazing! Continue reading

Orange Peel Chicken

We usually have Sunday dinner at my parents house every week. This week they were staying with friends for the weekend and would be back in time for dinner but not to cook it.

I originally found an orange peel shrimp recipe on Pinterest and adapted my recipe from that.
It was delicious!

Hide the Veggie Hamburgers!

I’m sure all kids go through this phase… You hear about it everywhere. The Veggie Stand Off! My son, Nicholas is 3 1/2 years old. I use to never have a problem getting him to eat his veggies but the last few months it has been almost impossible.
I tried everything! I only made his favorites, started making smoothies but nothing really worked.

Then one day I saw something on TV about taking roasted veggies, chopping them up and adding them to a meatloaf. Then it hit me- I could make hamburgers that were gluten and casein free for my daughter and packed full of hidden veggies for my son! It was brilliant!!! Continue reading

Chicken and Kale with Potatoes!

Kale… You hear it everywhere. It is suppose to be a super food. So a few months ago I was wandering around the produce department at my local grocery store and decided to go take a look at it.
I found a very hearty green that was pretty cheep. So even though I had no idea what to do with it or how to cook it I picked up a bunch.

I came home and started looking around the Internet for different ways to cook it and what it went well with.
I found a recipe on FoodandWine.com and decided to take the basic idea and do my own variation.

Here is what you will need… Continue reading
