Chili Cheese Spaghetti Squash Bake

March 7, 2017

I will readily admit that as obsessed as I am with spaghetti squash, my family members are not so enthusiastic. They will eat it, but always seem to let me know just how not thrilled they are to have it show up on the menu. They provided plenty of honest feedback for last night’s dinner, [...]

Easy Pad Thai

March 6, 2017

I have made so many versions of Pad Thai I’ve lost count. A couple of times I went to an Asian market and sought out tamarind paste and dried shrimp to create an authentic version. I’ve made it with kelp noodles and spiralized zucchini to keep it grain-free. I’ve added shrimp and chicken and made [...]

Chocolate, Toffee & Pretzel Bark

March 3, 2017

This bark is a riff on the popular no-bake saltine toffee bark that is as easy to make as it is to eat. While it’s obviously still a pretty decadent treat, I made it gluten and refined sugar-free. Instead of packaged toffee or caramel, it’s easy to create a homemade version with palm sugar and [...]

Low Carb Big Mac Casserole

March 2, 2017

Confession: I have never had a Big Mac. Now, before you think I’m being sanctimonious there’s a reason that has nothing to do with health. As a kid and teen I had my share of McDonald’s, but I also had a serious aversion to mayo. The thought of “secret sauce” terrified me, so I stuck [...]

Gluten-Free Hoisin Turkey Wraps

March 1, 2017

I’ve been making a concerted effort to put randoms to good use, hence the inspiration for this easy dish. I really intended it to just be a simple lunch to tide me and my husband over the other day, but he loved it so much that I made it for him twice in one week. [...]

Paleo Caesar Salad Dressing

February 28, 2017

My husband loves anchovies. His favorite pizza is one that is literally covered by the hairy little buggers. I love the briny flavor of the fish, but will admit I’m not a huge fan of their texture when whole. While I’ve used anchovy paste when making caesar salad dressing, but I was intrigued to make [...]

Grain-Free Morning Glory Muffins

February 27, 2017

I have tried many different versions of morning glory muffins over the years; the common element is usually carrots and some kind of dried fruit. I made one with pineapple and wasn’t a huge fan, and since no one here really likes raisins I’ve gotten all fancy by making them with currants. The best part [...]

Classic Gluten-Free Meatballs

February 25, 2017

Ever since our house went gluten-free I have gotten *very* creative in the meatball department. I’ve used everything from cooked quinoa to ground flax to bind my homemade meatballs, and nearly every one of my efforts has been pretty darned successful. Sometimes, though, even I just want the basic, real deal. The kind of meatball [...]

Chinese Orange-Barbecue Cashew Chicken

February 23, 2017

I’ve been using Amazon Fresh for my groceries, and when my daughter unpacked a jar of orange marmalade she thought we had received it by mistake. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever purchased the spread before; it’s just not a product or flavor that’s really my “thing.” Mixed into an Asian recipe by Rachael Ray, [...]

Gluten-Free & Vegan Coffee Cake

February 21, 2017

I may have missed it the first time around, but thanks to Netflix my daughter and I have built up quite the relationship with the Gilmore Girls. I couldn’t resist, then, to buy her the Eat Like a Gilmore cookbook; Lorelai and Rory live off of Poptarts, coffee and chili fries, so I thought it [...]
