I like anything that has dill. My garden is overflowing with dill that reseeds itself year after year. The first time I saw this salad I thought “a whole cup of dill! – must be good!”
I still have the problem that no one else in my house is a fan of turkey. Thus no leftovers, because no turkey dinners.
One of my other favorite green things is celery! I love the leaves and the insides. In fact I grow it in my garden just to have the leaves for salads.
I like to buy a turkey breast and cook it in a crockpot on low for about 8 hours with white wine, veggies, and some fresh herbs. Sometimes I will use two legs. Make sure to keep the bones to make stock!
This salad is pretty and would be good to take for a holiday potluck. I like it for lunch with or without greens and sprouts.
The holidays would not be complete without green bean casserole. When we first went dairy and gluten free we went many years without this holiday staple. Then I learned to make a roux and I started making this casserole again without the French Fried Onions. And then, ALDI started making gluten free french fried onions and holidays dinner was complete!
Personally I like it if the green beans are still a little crunchy so I use fresh beans. Using can or frozen beans is fine too. The other ingredient that can be changed around is the onions. I like using dried chopped onions, the ones you get in the spice isle. These make me think more of the dried onion soup mix that I used before we started our gallery journey.
I hope this recipe helps make your holidays complete. – SB
Gluten free, Dairy free, Nut Free, Soy Protein free, and Nightshade free in one yummy doughnut that I did not have to make.
I recently took them on a weekend get away with family to enjoy with my coffee in the morning. Traveling can be hard when you are avoiding multiple food allergens. I have found that Katz doughnuts have become my go-to breakfast when traveling.
We finally found noodles that don’t turn mushy by lunch when in a thermos. These Thai Rice noodles are great. My kids have been taking soup for lunch with these noodles quite often this winter. We heat up bone broth to a rolling boil and add the noodles. The noodles only need about 3 minutes in the boiling broth. Put the hot soup and noodles in a thermos and they will be fine at lunch.
If you want to add vegetables or chicken while the soup is boiling it makes a hearty lunch, or a Pho-like dinner.
Starbucks is one of our favorite places. It is always a bummer standing in line looking at all the pretty pastries in the case. We have shed many tears and had more than one argument about can we have it-NO!
So it is always exciting when there is something new in the packaged products that maybe we can eat. This fall it has been the Hippeas. The Fajita flavored ones are the preferred flavor. I can even eat the regular flavored ones. (No Nightshades!) And who doesn’t like a product with a pun for it’s name.
I was lamenting at a gluten-free event how I was sad Gluten-free Rice Krispies were no longer being sold in the USA. The person looked at me like I had been living under a rock. “ALDI’s Crispy Rice cereal is gluten-free” she said.
I went to ALDI that day! At the time I did not shop at ALDI much. The last time I had been there there was not much of a selection for my family. The new gluten-free line of products is good, there is soy flour in the cookies which makes them a “No” for us. The Crispy Rice Cereal however was a “Yes”! So were the marshmallows!
To make the treats I followed the directions on the marshmallow bag, and used Earth Balances Soy-free spread in place of butter.
I also used a tricked learned from one of our favorite teachers. Heat the marshmallows and butter in a glass (or your favorite Pyrex) bowl in the microwave. I don’t use my microwave very often, but this is one of my reasons for loving them. There are no after pictures because we ate them so fast. Next time I will melt some dairy-free chocolate chips on top. Yum.
I hope you enjoy this school time treat as much as we do. SB
I love strawberries. I’ve tried growing strawberries, but the wildlife in my yard always outsmarts me and eats the ripe ones before I can get to them. We always have at least a pint in the fridge at all times. I love strawberry shortcake, but it is not my families favorite. So I tried this recipe.
I have made GF pie crust from a box and it was good, but for this one I made my own.
I like to use just rice flour for this crust recipe. The crust hold up well and is not soggy.
The best part of this recipe is the goo. It makes lots of goo! Plenty to lick off the spoon and maybe mix with some So Delicious Coco Whip.
Most of my house hold liked this recipe. You can’t always please everyone, but I consider most a win. I hope you enjoy this refreshing Strawberry Pie. -Susan
