Mushroom Cornbread Stuffing Muffins

Mushroom Cornbread Stuffing Muffins

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is this week! With a power outage lasting 8 days after Hurricane Sandy, I feel like I lost a week and have been busy trying to catch up with work and home, and fixing all the things that broke due to the hurricane. There are still so many people that are without power so I am extremely grateful to be back in a warm, lit kitchen cooking again.

Today, I’m sharing an updated collection of my Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Thanksgiving Recipes. I put together a list last year and have added a few more from this past year. Last year was my first year cooking a gluten-free Thanksgiving and this year, I feel much better equipped. Although my youngest son is the only one on a gluten-free diet, it is just easier to make the entire Thanksgiving meal gluten-free. We also have some dairy intolerances in our family, so I’ve compiled recipes that are gluten and dairy-free.

If you’re still planning your Thanksgiving menu, I hope this collection of healthy gluten-free and dairy-free recipes from my kitchen provides a resource for you.

Enjoy and I wish everyone a blessed Thanksgiving holiday!
