Sausage, Spinach & Polenta Skillet

October 25, 2017

When time is of the essence to get dinner on the table on weeknights, I love the convenience of packaged polenta. It’s an easy and healthy gluten-free replacement for pasta in casseroles and other Italian-inspired dishes. I love this one in particular as it’s a foolproof way to get my kids (and husband!) to eat […]

Cheeseburger Skillet

October 20, 2017

I came up with this dish because I realized I hadn’t pulled out my spiralizer in a while, and wanted to come up with something a little more creative than the traditional zucchini “noodles.” I’ve purchased butternut squash and sweet potato noodles at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s and thought I’d try to make my […]

Instant Pot Adobe Chicken

October 18, 2017

I have found a lot of great Instant Pot recipes on various blogs and websites, but only recently have I noticed the “wonder pot” being covered in mainstream media. I adapted this dinner from Food Network, tweaking it to make it gluten-free and a little cleaner. While I did use chicken legs as called for […]

Italian Spaghetti Squash Casserole

October 16, 2017

  Every time my kids and husband see a spaghetti squash on the counter, I undoubtedly receive some kind of highly unsolicited and very whiny feedback. Apparently they are not the hugest fans of the big yellow beast, and think if they keep letting my know just how they feel I’ll stop preparing it. As […]

White Chicken & Apple Chili

October 13, 2017

Truth be told, “white” chili isn’t really white. They’re frankly quite difficult to photograph as they’re more of a muddy light brown in color, but I do understand the importance of distinguishing between them and the traditional red-based variety. I’ve tried my family out many different variations of white chicken chili, and they’ve always been […]

Sweet Potato & Chicken Roti Wraps

October 12, 2017

Sometimes photos don’t do a recipe justice. Wraps and quesadillas are always hard to capture, as it’s a challenge to make the insides look as delicious as they (hopefully) taste once they’re stuffed in a tortilla. This recipe that I adapted from The Food Network was loaded with flavor and pleasantly surprised everyone. The kids […]

Cassava Flour Brownies

October 11, 2017

I cleaned out my pantry a few weeks back and was saddened at the items that wound up in the trash. Sometimes I buy somewhat obscure ingredients for one recipe or another, and then find myself afraid to face them again. Worse than the ingredients wasted in a recipe flop, however, are those that go […]

Roasted Maple Sweet Potatoes & Brussels Sprouts

October 8, 2017

I have a secret weapon when it comes to getting both my children and husband to willingly eat their vegetables: roasting. The Brussels sprouts of my youth were boiled and smelled like sweaty gym socks (sorry, Mom!). The oven can transforms sprouts and pretty much any other veggie by crisping them up and bringing out […]

Honey Sriracha Chicken Quesadillas

October 6, 2017

My kids entered middle and high school this year, so I’m trying to encourage them to be a little more involved in the kitchen. I was impressed when my sixth grader took the initiative to make his own lunch last weekend, and I tried hard not to laugh too hard when I saw what he […]

Cheesy Skillet Gnocchi

October 2, 2017

I love gnocchi, but rarely eat or prepare it as most varieties aren’t gluten-free. Although they’re potato dumplings they also usually contain wheat flour. I’m a huge fan of Cappello’s pasta, which is almond flour-based and the most delicious gluten/grain-free pasta alternative I’ve ever tried. It’s a little on the pricey side but definitely worth […]
