Food: Dinner Tonight – Gluten Free Lasagna

Gluten-free is always a good idea in my household – considering the different health concerns my family seems to have, and since Italian is is one of my favorite, I mean who doesn’t love Italian, this recipe is the perfect meal for dinner tonight.  And yes, even if I am running around like a chicken with her head cut off, I always insist on cooking for the fam – it’s the only solid or consistent therapy I am committed to, besides my happy color app on my iPhone.
