Thanksgiving Classics eBook: Gluten Free & Traditionally Prepared

by lydia on November 24, 2013

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday. While I do hold a special place in my heart for all holidays, Thanksgiving is by far the one that lights the chef in me up the most. There is just something about taking a day to reflect, and enjoy being with the ones you love all surrounded by some of the most comforting foods. I’ve been preparing healthy Thanksgiving dinners for the past 18 years or so. Even as a guest on Thanksgiving, I’ve always had a hand in part of the food preparation. Over the years I’ve developed, refined and sampled many many recipes.




A few years ago after going gluten free and learning to prepare things in a more traditional manner, I found the need to revamp many of my recipes to suit my new lifestyle. That’s why I’ve created a collection of 18 recipes all gluten free, and some with an option for those who may still eat wheat. I want to share those recipes with others, which is why I’ve created my ‘Thanksgiving Classics ebook: Gluten Free & Traditionally Prepared’. (Get your copy HERE).  I’m not sure which recipe I get more excited about, they all get my mouth watering.



The recipes you will find in my Thanksgiving Classics eBook include;


  • Ambrosia
  • Brined Pastured Turkey
  • Shrimp Bisque
  • Brussel Sprouts in a Sherry Orange Cream Sauce
  • Green Bean Casserole
  • Mashed Turnips
  • Mixed Green Salad with Figs & Candied Walnuts in a Champagne Vinaigrette
  • Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash
  • Sweet Potato Casserole
  • Classic Sourdough Stuffing (gluten free option, traditional option, Sausage or Giblet stuffing)
  • Wild Rice Stuffing or Wild Rice Oyster Stuffing
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Giblet Gravy
  • Basic Pan Gravy


Many of these recipes come with a few recipes in one. All of my recipes are with optimal health in mind. My sweet potato casserole focuses on flavor and not adding a ton of sweetness, you can add some honey but it’s optional. I find it so fun to feed people real food and watch them realize they can actually taste the main ingredients. My cranberry sauce is one of my favorites. I look forward to making the same one every year. I’ve tried so many types of cranberry sauce recipes over the years, but I just keep coming back to this one. I chose mashed turnips instead of potatoes to lighten the starch a bit. You would be surprised how good they are! The Shrimp Bisque is quite lovely and comes with a recipe for stock and shrimp butter, oh my! Shrimp butter – need I say more?! This eBook is for the main dish and side dishes only, no desserts are included.



The recipes in this eBook reflect my own personal favorites that I, my family and many guests have enjoyed over the years. I share them with you in the hopes that they may become some of your family’s favorites as well.

The recipes in this eBook are designed to serve approximately 6 adults. I have included the ingredients that I think are the best quality and most nutritious with which to feed yourself and others. Please feel free to substitute ingredients that are more conducive to your budget, as well as to where you live and shop.

Also please note that there are several recipes that require ahead of time preparation, so please review the recipes carefully so you can plan ahead.

Most importantly, have fun with this book and savor the joy of nourishing yourself, your friends and your families.

How do I get the free copy? it asks me to sign up for your newsletter, which I am a subscriber.

If you are already subscribed, please look for the newsletter I sent out yesterday -the book is also in there!

I had the same question as Norma. I looked for the newsletter, found the gravy post, and found nothing in it about a cookbook. Does that mean I am not signed up for the newsletter or what? Thanks.

Christina -why don’t you try signing up and see? The newsletter had more in it than the gravy post – you are likely referring to being subscribed to my feed.
