One of the many foods I have missed are my creamy delicious dinner. My mother made the best Beef Stroganoff. In fact I used to request that for my birthday dinner…in June. My mother refused since it was “off season” so I had to always come up with a second option or wait until it was cold out.
Now I can do whatever I want, but her recipe takes hours and has all kinds of gluten and Dairy… since I’m watching what I eat for both health and Gluten/Dairy issues this is something I skipped until I ran across a food blogger that was new to me…Skinnyms.com. I don’t know about you but I’m always hesitant with new recipe sites since some are…um..well… uh…how to put it delicately? Ah forget delicate, some have “healthy” recipes that resemble cardboard more than meals. Horrible…but I gave Skinnyms.com a shot and WOW… she wasn’t kidding. This is great. I made a few modifications to her recipe since it had dairy in it and I always have to tinker…but wow.. it’s super super good! Check this out:
