Grain-Free Cheeseburger Pie

May 10, 2017

I think I have created more low carb, grain-free twists on the humble cheeseburger than I have any other dish. My son has declared cheeseburgers his favorite food (occasionally they tie with bananas), and it’s one meal that all of us enjoy. Last night’s dinner was my take on the “impossible” pies made with packaged [...]

Gluten-Free & Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

May 4, 2017

My husband gives my cooking the most praise, but also is its harshest critic. This is particularly true when it comes to baking, for which I am actually grateful! Since I do a lot of allergy-friendly and/or healthier ingredient substitutions, I take a lot of risks when it comes to treat-making. If a finished product [...]

Breakfast Spaghetti Squash Casserole

May 1, 2017

Since I broke my foot I find weekday mornings particularly challenging, when I’m trying to hobble around getting the kids ready for school. Last week I ate plain Greek yogurt and berries just about every morning because I just didn’t have the time or ability to prep anything else for myself. While the kids were [...]

Mango Frozen Yogurt

April 27, 2017

It’s been so gray and rainy here in CT all week that I’ve been trying to find ways to brighten things up. This homemade frozen yogurt seemed perfect, as it’s loaded with summery flavor and and pretty much looks like sunshine in a bowl! While you can make this with either fresh or frozen mango, [...]

Homemade Healthy “Hamburger Helper”

April 26, 2017

Let’s talk Hamburger Helper for a minute. I never tried it myself until I was a poor college student. As an adult I’ve never bought it for my kids, because what it offers in convenience it sacrifices in healthy ingredients. The most popular flavor (I believe) is the cheeseburger macaroni. There is a dizzying array [...]

Loaded Bahn Mi Fries

April 25, 2017

I haven’t been posting a ton of new recipes due to my broken foot. While I’m stilling in the kitchen as much as I can (I am really mastering the art of crutch cooking), it’s hard to get the pics needed for blog posts. My “studio” is across the room, and I’m often prepping when [...]

Buffalo Baked Potato & Chicken Casserole

April 19, 2017

I sent my husband and daughter to the grocery store for me the other day, knowing full well that it was a gamble. I confess that I’m a complete control freak in the kitchen, so I hate giving up control of any aspect of the meal-planning. Happily they did an amazing job and found almost [...]

Sheet Pan Jambalaya

April 17, 2017

Sheet pan dinners are trendy lately, but I didn’t choose this recipe to hip. Since I’m cooking with a broken foot, anything that can cut down on my prep is a blessing! Other than chopping the vegetables, there isn’t much hands on effort required to create this creative twist on the classic cajun entree. Since [...]

Paleo Double Chocolate Banana Bread

April 12, 2017

I broke my right foot last week, so getting my groceries delivered by AmazonFresh is one way I’m coming close to maintaining my sanity. I actually love going food shopping, and (unsurprisingly) I’m not so quick getting through the store. I read every label and fondle every avocado and other produce looking for the perfect [...]

Nicoise Egg Salad

April 11, 2017

Every Easter week I find myself with 18 beautifully dyed hard-boiled eggs and only one person who will eat them: me. I love using mashed avocado in lieu of mayo for a quick healthy take on a traditional egg salad. This year I thought I wanted to come up with something a little more creative, [...]
