Homemade Gluten-Free Mac and Cheese

Gluten-free mac and cheese recipe from Gluten-Free Goddess- creamy, with real cheese.


Old School Comfort


One of the first recipes I shared here on Gluten-Free Goddess was our old school, homemade, family style mac and cheese recipe. I won't mention how long ago that was, or how old the recipe actually is, darling. I first learned to make it in eighth grade Home Ec class (does Home Economics still exist? Do they even teach cooking in middle school any more?). Aside from these ponderings, and the unnerving sensation of years advancing, rolling, as Warren Zevon says, like a rockslide down a hill, I've been craving this simple mac and cheese like mad lately.

So I thought I'd post our latest version of it. Seems like old fashioned comfort food is the medicine I need lately.

Maybe you do, too?

The Best Exotic Soup Recipe- Evah?


On a whim I threw together this North African inspired fusion of flavors led by cravings and intuition. We slurped it down and scraped our bowls. Turns out that sweet potatoes, chick peas, roasted green chiles and coconut milk make for one scrumptious soup. 

I think you'll love it.

Dairy-free never tasted so good.

Gluten-Free Rice Crispy Treats

Karina's Gluten-Free Rice Crispy Treats recipe uses almond butter.


Old School Rice Crispy Treat Goodness. Sorta.


Gloomy, rainy Sundays seem to stir up all kinds of sneaky devils and hungry ghosts in the guise of food nostalgia. I dreamed up my post about Zucchini Gratin on a Sunday, stirring up a bread crumbed casserole of desire fraught with secret emotions and sticky attachments. Food as familial comfort. 


Food evoking a warm embrace. 


Food as a way to connect our twenty-one grams of soul to this earth. The ground of being.


And I think I know why I'm tip toeing in the garden of nostalgia lately.


The world seems bent on disruption and displacement. Technology has forever altered the Old School way of doing business, looking up recipes, sharing a joke, researching a project, assembling an automobile, heating a home, influencing an audience, pitching to consumers, gathering the latest news. 


The Genie is out of the bottle. And new rules apply.


But there are a few things that I stick by. In my sixth decade I still side with Hope. And Progress. And Equal Love, Equal Pay, freedom of speech. I see all my fellow humans as co-travelers on this short ride of Life. My Sisters, and Brothers. 


We're all in this together.


And so I offer treats. Old school style. Dated, maybe. But tasty? Yep.
