a fabulous dinner....

 Check out the new cookbook I found yesterday...

Can you see who the authors are? Jilly Lagasse and Jessie Lagasse Swanson, Emeril's daughters. I never knew he had two daughters who are gluten free. Can you imagine being the child of a great chef like Emeril and not being able to eat a lot of what he makes? Yikes! These two gals have put together an awesome collection of recipes, many of them gluten free recreations of their dad's favorite dishes. I had a wonderful time leafing through it today and marking many recipes that I want to try.

First up, beef stroganoff. Remember when Emeril used to say "I wish you had smellovision so you could smell how good this is"? Yeah, that's how I feel right now!
This dish was not hard to make, but took a little time. I did cut the amount of onions in half & there were still plenty. I also learned about "creme fraiche" a new to me ingredient (kind of like an upscale sour cream). Oh, and I left out the peas. Peas in beef stroganoff? No thanks.

Here's mine, served over gluten free noodles. I should have taken a picture of my empty plate. And hubby's empty plate. And Ally's empty plate. A win! We'll be making this again.

Oh yeah, gluten-free and THREE empty plates - definitely a winner!
