Frontier Bites- Bite sized Granola Clusters full of gluten free goodness!
Christmas in July
At least that is what it felt like when my Love with Food Gluten Free Subscription Box July 2016 came! I am a sucker for anything in the mail, and packages I can open have me even more excited! I just love all the individually sized goodies. They are so great to throw in my purse or diaper bag, so that I’m never left hungry!
I understand, and I have the answer.
We’ve all been there. You just made an awesome dinner, such as my Louisiana Style Red Beans and Rice, you eat till your stuffed and then you have just a little bit leftover. Now, I have no issues eating leftovers, but I have more than one friend whose husband will not eat leftovers. Talk about frustrating.
No worries, Peruvian’s have figured out a way to solve this leftover beans and rice problem.
Tacu Tacu is the answer.
Red Beans and Rice is a deliciously easy one pot meal that is ready in under 30 minutes!This post is part of a sponsorship with First Fresh Chicken Sausage. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting My Gluten Free Miami and the companies that support it!
A NOLA Love Affair
My hubby and I love New Orleans. We went there for our honeymoon and had the best time eating our way through the city (doesn’t everyone plan their vacations around food?) it was amazing, but it was BC (before Celiac). Red Beans and Rice, Muffalata Sandwiches, Gumbo, Banana’s Foster…the kind of food you dream about.
One of my favorite things to make when I am missing New Orleans food is Red Beans and Rice.
Unfortunately, it can be a bit tricky to find a good sausage that is also gluten free. Plus, I don’t have time to spend all day cooking to get that delicious New Orleans flavor.
Give Me Easy or Give Me Take Out
Well, that’s how I feel, but if you’ve been gluten free for any length of time, you know that take it out really isn’t an option AND it’s extremely pricey AND not usually very healthy.
As much as I want to be a “Pinterest Mom” with a freezer full of food for the month and mason jar salads ready to go, it’s just not gonna happen.
I work, I have a toddler, I have the smallest kitchen you’ve ever seen (I wish I was joking), but I still have to feed my family so I am always on the lookout for easy gluten free meals that I can whip up, the less ingredients and dishes needed the better!

Peruvian Causa, Spicy Mashed Potatoes
One of my absolute favorite Peruvian dishes is Causa. Causa is super simple to make and has so many uses. Causa itself refers to the spicy mashed potatoes that are seasoned with aji amarillo and lime. It can be filled with chicken salad, tuna salad, avocado, shrimp salad, ceviche or really anything you like! Traditionally it has a bit of mayonnaise on top to counteract the spiciness, and in true Peruvian style, a hard boiled egg.
Mango season is just starting here in South Florida. Before long the mango trees will be heavy with ripe, sweet mangoes. Where all over the United States kids are running summer lemonade stands, here you will see kids standing by the road selling buckets of mangoes. By the end of the summer everyone will have eaten their weight in mangoes.
