I have recently started removing gluten from my diet in order to pinpoint my allergy triggers.
Consequently, I had to change many of my eating habits and search for new recipes.

I was thrilled to run across my Aunts recipe in an old cookbook, knowing how much I loved it AND it was gluten-free.

The herbs are the added twist I love to incorporate into any dish- they just bring a new level of flavor.

Do you have any favorite gluten-free or vegetarian dishes you would like to share?

I’m always looking to try new things!
