004

Can you believe tomorrow is the second Monday of April? Do you know what that means? That means tomorrow is Ingredient Challenge Monday (ICM)!! Yay! Last month we featured healthy Kale, such a diverse and delicious vegetable, it was difficult to select a winner from the entries we received. And while every entry was positively […]

Spinach, Kale and Dandelion Green Salad with Blood Oranges, Candied Pecans and Blood Orange Vinaigrette

020

Spring is beautifully upon us.  Flowers are blooming, birds are singing.  Children are ready to shed their winter gloom to get outside and play. Then there is the yard.  Lawns need to be mowed, weeds need to be pulled. Or do they? One advantage to living in a drought ridden area is the fact that […]

Vegan Basil Pesto with Kale

011

There are few things in life better than a fresh bowl of pasta swirled with rich, creamy pesto.  The beautiful green hue, tender chunks of ground pine nuts, hints of basil and garlic blended with creamy parmesan; simply blissful. Recently, when faced with exquisite bundles of basil permeating my kitchen, I knew there must be […]

Ingredient-Challenge Monday, Vegan Garlic Kale Chips

003

I love leafy greens.  Seriously.  Spinach, Mustard, Turnip, Kale…love love love!  My garden was loaded with greens this year and my only wish is that we had more to enjoy!  It surprises and somewhat saddens me that many people look at greens and freeze up; clueless as to how to add these striking gems to […]

Healthy Lunchbox 2014: Janet from The Taste Space

Last year, Janet from The Taste Space shared with us a luscious Salad in a Jar. Her Topaz Dragon Ginger Dressing is one of my all-time favorite salad dressing solutions.

085

The calendar tells us that autumn has arrived! The weather where you live may or may not agree with that. While we enjoyed temperatures down in the 70’s and 80’s last week (prefect West Texas autumn temperatures), this week we are back in the mid to high 90’s. Meh.  That’s West Texas craziness for you. […]

Zuppa Toscana (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free)

007-1

I’ve mentioned a number of times how much I love Bountiful Baskets; not only have they reduced our produce costs by hundreds of dollars, every month…I have also been introduced to a number of fruits and vegetables previously unknown to me! Most recently, we received several heads of something called Salad Savoy. Having no clue […]

Lemon Infused Brussels

006

There is no doubt that I love my greens. Kale, spinach, arugula and more! There is scarcely a green that my family won’t eat. That is, unless you are a brussel sprout. It wasn’t until going gluten-free that I learned to love brussel sprouts. Before then I gagged at the thought. No matter how they […]

Paleo Green Bean Casserole

005

Growing up, my stepmother always told me she was a horrible cook. The thing is, I loved her food.  Simple meals made at home are still homemade meals. Living in the small town that we lived in, there weren’t many opportunities to run and grab take-out or fast food and so that meant that we […]
