Something to Cook…

Hello GfreeDeliciously friend 

Many people may think of cooler weather when it comes to casseroles, and this casserole recipe is undoubtedly suited for making during those times too. Still, cold weather aside, this dish has become one of our favorites as a summer side dish, making it for cookouts, hearty family dinners, and just about any other occasion where we’re feeding a crowd. Another major plus is that it requires just a few minutes of prep time and only a handful of ingredients.

We were first introduced to this tasty casserole at a summer potluck with friends outside Nashville. With one bite, our family (kids included) immediately fell in love with the creamy, delicious combination of ingredients that meld together when baked. Loaded with tender summer squash, the béchamel sauce with creamy corn, crackers, and a buttery taste, it’s an authentic Southern comfort food knock-it-out-of-the-ballpark recipe that will win a homerun with everyone at your table!

Something to Eat…

Last week I promised you new recipes; I’d hoped to get them to you before the weekend, but things have been non-stop around here for over the last ten days – and very little here at my desk.

There’s so much to share. But first is the new recipe I’ve mentioned above in this email because, after all, we’re swimming in zucchini and summer squash now, so I’m trying to fix all I can with it, from dinner side dishes to desserts.

Then there is this craving I’ve got for a great salmon dinner!

Just in time, this popped into my inbox, so I’ve got to share it. Wild Alaskan Salmon is on Sale at Vital Choice!

The sale is good through 9/6/2022, so I’ll be placing my order soon since we’ve missed the gifts of Great Lakes salmon this year from family (who typically share their catches – but it hasn’t worked out for this year’s summertime visits from them – hint, hint, we still have beds waiting for you:) if gas prices drop and things open up in the schedule!

Does it sound like I’m begging? Not really. Everything seems out of wack when things don’t work out like we wish for… so maybe next year. In the meantime, thank heaven there’s Vital Choice.

Something to Discover…

From a graham crackers guide to oat milk brands, peach muffins that I REALLY want to make soon, and a new interesting article from celiac.com – here are a few Gfree things to discover…

My downtime lately has been all over the place lately. Still, I’ve found a few articles that you might find interesting.

From summer smores to school snacks, graham crackers are a go-to snack and dessert staple. Spokin’s Allergy-Friendly Graham Crackers Guide is beneficial for sorting out gluten-free brands. Their guide features 17 graham crackers, including Spokin Verified, Enjoy Life, and four made in dedicated facilities. See them in the guide or the Spokin app to see graham crackers customized to your allergens. Please note: GfreeDeliciously is not an affiliate partner with Spokin.

I am hoping that this week and the weekend will treat you well. Next week is a full schedule around here, so I’ll take a little break from any new posts to visit with my mom, who’s visiting from Florida through the end of the month. We hope to catch up, do some fabric shopping, and enjoy the last days of summer kicking back.

Thank you for reading GfreeDeliciously’s Playing with Food.

Get 50% Off – The GfreeDeliciously’s website and the Playing with Food eNewsletter are reader-supported. While it’s not all about making money, we can’t do our GfreeMagic as random posts and emails. GFD is a website, an eNewsletter, and a delicious tour through tested and perfected gluten-free recipes for foods that never compromise on taste. Modern-day gluten-free versions of everyday traditional foods for reimagined recipes – delicious, clean, and whole foods prepared a bit differently to eliminate gluten.

GfreeDeliciously is not a cult because gluten-free health coaches, cooks, and creators like me aren’t very good at leading cults (I’ll be the first to point out how little I know). Though, you can count on practical advice and inspiration for cooking, eating, and discovering a whole lot about being gluten-free.

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!
