Gluten Free Recipes and Gluten and Casein Free Recipes
Gluten free recipes for soups, meals, and breads are included.
I have easy gluten free diet recipes for desserts and snacks
that will gladden your heart while helping you heal.
I use Pacific brand unflavored rice milk in many recipes. For powdered milk I use Vance's Dari-Free, but that is a personal preference. These substitutions will be mainly for creamed soups or frostings. My regular recipes generally don't include casein at all.
Time Saving Tips
The best way to maximize your time is to make large meals
when you have time, and freeze portions for the times you can't cook from scratch.
Even if you only have leftover rice from chicken and rice, for example, it can be substituted for the bread or noodle portion of a different meal, provided the meat and vegetables are seasoned gluten free.
This works well in families where only one person is on the gluten free diet. Cooking two separate meals daily is just too hard. Gluten free meals 2 or 3 times a week for
everyone will give you enough portions to freeze for the other days.
It is hard to be the "odd man out" if you are the only one who is
gluten free. Especially in the case of children, it is important to make them feel as normal as possible. So the more meals that they can share the same food, the better. Substituting one portion is much better than an entirely separate meal. Home should be one place they don't have to feel different. It is wise to prepare their plate first though, so that a gluten covered serving spoon is not accidentally used for their serving. In substituting one portion they learn how to work around their dietary limitations too.
The Paleo Diet
For some, all grains seem to cause difficulty. If you have
found yourself uncomfortable after eating even gluten free
grains, you might want to try using the Paleo diet. This
diet is not just gluten and casein free, but totally grain
free. It can be a good way to start your gluten free diet
too, while you are healing.

This can be a temporary thing until you've healed enough
to tolerate other grains, or you can stay on the Paleo
diet if you like the way it feels. It is also helpful if
you would like to lose weight

White Sauces and Roux
Because of the fast pace of life today, many people have never
made a white sauce or a roux. I have a page of instructions on
how to make these thickeners with gluten free flours. You will
need them to thicken stews and make a version of "cream of" (ie: mushroom, chicken, celery, asparagus) soups that is gluten and perhaps dairy free. They will be helpful for several of my gluten free recipes.
