Well, summer is over, but the heat is not (at least where I live)! I have found that I can’t do long, involved recipes when it’s really hot. So, this month, I have enjoyed finding some simpler recipes. I hope you enjoy them too!

9 Recipes I love for September –nick_dan_bike

Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free New England Clam Chowder – there’s something about clam chowder that just screams, “FALL!” And, now you can enjoy it in a dairy-free, gluten-free version.

Roasted Chicken and Potatoes with Rosemary, Garlic, Lemon –  just as the blogger says, your house smells fantastic and this is so unbelievably yummy!

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Eggs in Sweet Potato Nests – need a good brunch recipe? These will certainly fit the bill beautifully.

Minty Vegan Shamrock Shake – who says you can’t have a Shamrock shake in September? This is a wonderful, healthy treat for this heat wave we are in now.

Chocolate Chip Espresso Muffins – be honest, sometimes we all need an extra kick in the pants to get going this month! These muffins can make any Monday special…

Gluten-Free Soft Dinner Rolls – the perfect accompaniment to the clam chowder recipe above or your favorite pasta dish.

Bison Sliders with Honey Carmelized Onions – grilling season is still alive and well! How about a healthier burger, made with bison meat (high in protein, low in fat).

No-Stir Risotto – yum, risotto! It’s usually so much work to make because of all the attention it requires. It’s great to find one that you don’t have to babysit the whole time.

Pumpkin-Apple Butter – here’s a great after-school snack for the kids and perfect for spreading on toast in the mornings too. Nothing says “fall” like pumpkin!

gfcf_twinkies

This week at Stockpiling Moms I fulfilled another reader request, a Gluten-Free, Casein-Free version of the Twinkies snack cake. I had fun making these, despite how labor-intensive the recipe turned out to be. I’ve never liked Twinkies myself, because they just seemed like chemicals to me.  However, this version….well, let’s just say it’s tough to eat less than 2 in one sitting! The cakes are nice and light and so is the creamy frosting. I made them in muffin tins, because I don’t have a Cream Canoe Pan, but you could try the canoe pan if you have one. These are a fun item to surprise your children with in their lunches too! Nicholas Rating = 200 Thumbs Up!

 

gfcf_chicken_peppers

This week’s recipe at Stockpiling Moms is Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Chicken and Peppers. The original recipe can be found in Betty Crocker’s Cookbook  (1986 edition).

This recipe is so simple and light, yet so flavorful. I also really love the fact that after making it a few times, you can do it from memory. I made this on a recent vacation for my family (we were staying in a condo with a nice kitchen), since it’s easy to get the ingredients at any grocery store. Serve it with either brown rice or quinoa. My husband always says how much he loves this dish whenever I make it. He gave it 100 Thumbs Up!

 

gluten-free, casein-free scones

This week’s new recipe at Stockpiling Moms is Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Scones. I was asked to create a gluten-free scone recipe by the lovely ladies of Stockpiling Moms, so I decided to go to my 1964 version of the Joy of Cooking  cookbook  for inspiration! My mother has always referred to this cookbook as a “cooking bible”, so I thought it would be a good place to start. The result was a simple scone that is both gluten and casein free (in my version, not the original). Because it is essentially a plain scone, you can “dress it up” with whatever added ingredients you like, such as cinnamon or currants. Please post a comment below about your variations; I’d love to hear them!

gfcf_sweet_sour_grilled_chicken

This week’s recipe at Stockpiling Moms is Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Sweet and Sour Grilled Chicken. This recipe is a new twist on sweet and sour chicken. It’s an easy dinner for a weeknight because you can marinate it the night before and then only have to do about 30 minutes of dinner prep on the night that you eat it. Because it’s a mild, sweet dish, I believe most children will find it very appealing. Finally, it also can be made with ingredients that it’s easy to keep on hand, so it’s a great answer to the age-old question….”What should we eat tonight?”

This great recipe can be found in Celeste’s Best Allergen Free Recipes for Everyday Cooking and Baking; I will be reviewing this cookbook on the blog next week (stay tuned!).  My husband and I enjoyed this dish very much. Nicholas gave the sauce a “100 Thumbs Up” rating!

It’s summer in Southern California and that means surfing! Nicholas enjoyed a week of Surf Camp and the weather couldn’t have been better. It’s also time to list my 7 Recipes I love for July.

These are the ones we have been enjoying this month, and I hope you will too!

1. Creamy Cashew Pasta Salad  – what is it about cold pasta salad and summer? They just go together, beautifully. And, a GFCF version is even better!

2. Shredded Beef Tacos – my son asked me to make “tacos like they have at Chipotle” and this recipe really delivers.  It can be made in a crock pot too, so it doesn’t heat up your kitchen.  My husband and Nicholas couldn’t stop raving about these!

3. Coconut Cajun Shrimp – I’ll admit it…I have a definite weakness for recipes that include both coconut AND shrimp! This one is extra special because it’s spicy to boot.

4. Gluten-Free Crepes – yes, you can make crepes with coconut flour! Another fun item for summer because you can stuff them full of all the fruit that is in season now.

5. Paleo Hungry Man Sweet Potato Casserole – another hearty meal that you can cook in the crock pot. Crock pot cooking is really great for summer, especially if you are very busy.  Dinner is waiting for you in the evening, after a little bit of prep in the morning; fabulous!

6. Asian Chicken Skewers with Spicy Peanut Sauce – chicken on a stick…doesn’t that just scream SUMMER? I’ve seen the prepared, marinated skewers at the store and realized there’s too much junk in the marinade (including MSG and gluten usually). So, I was so thrilled to see such a yummy recipe to make my own.

7. Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free Donuts – “But, Mom! I really miss donuts!” Nicholas was super excited to find out that he could eat these donuts and not violate the GFCF Diet.

gfcf_homemade_larabar

This week’s recipe at Stockpiling Moms is GFCF Homemade “Larabars”. I was challenged by a reader of their website to create a homemade Larabar-type energy bar. This recipe is not only tasty, it is also quite low in sugar (especially if you use a natural peanut butter). My son thought these were rather tasty and was all too happy to take them in his lunch for a snack. Nicholas rating = 10 Thumbs Up!


glutenfree_caseinfree_cheesecake

This week’s recipe at Stockpiling Moms is Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Cheesecake! I was asked to create this recipe by the lovely ladies of Stockpiling Moms and my husband was very happy to offer to be the taster. Personally, the mere thought of cheesecake used to make my stomach clench thanks to my dairy intolerance. But, I embraced this challenge and we were all thrilled with the result. My son wasn’t sure if he would like cheesecake, but he enjoyed it thoroughly too.

gluten-free-sausage-peppers-pasta

This week’s recipe at Stockpiling Moms is Gluten-Free Sausage & Peppers Pasta.  I’ve grown a little bored with simply having sausage with my marinara and penne, so I found this great recipe in Better Homes & Gardens: New Cookbook 14th Edition that I adapted easily to be gluten-free! (As a side note, the sausage I used is a yummy, gluten-and-nitrate-free chicken and apple sausage by Aidells that I purchased at Costco for a great price!) It’s nice to have a quick pasta dish that you can make on a weekday night and not heat up your kitchen too much in summer. My husband gave it 12 Thumbs Up!

6 GFCF Recipes I love for June

eatgfcf.wordpress.com

I started this idea last month by posting 5 recipes I loved for May, and so I’m continuing it here by listing 6 recipes from other people’s blogs that I have enjoyed making this month. Here we go!

1. Fudgsicles from Comfy Belly (yes, these are gluten-free, dairy-free but full of chocolate flavor!)

2. Sweet Potato Latkes from Everyday Paleo  (an easy breakfast solution for those of us bored with sweet potatoes!)

3. Butternut Squash Lasagna from Health Bent (I admit, at first glance, this didn’t seem too appealing….but, wow! It blew me away with all the flavors!)

4. Green Guac Roast Rolls from Eating SCD (I love to do this for lunch; sometimes, I use turkey instead.)

5. Quinoa Gucamole Salad by Just A Taste (We have just discovered quinoa as a great alternative to rice, since my son can’t eat rice anymore. This is an easy, summer salad with lots of flavor!)

6. Carrot Banana Muffins from Elana’s Pantry (A great way to sneak some carrots into your vegetable-averse child!)

Did I miss anything? Please leave a comment and a link to your favorite recipes or let me know if you make one of these choices and how it was. Thanks!
