Potatoes au Gratin (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan Option Noted)

004

I do not eat potatoes often; my body just isn’t ready to process that many carbs. That being said, Thanksgiving only comes once a year and these cheesy, delicious slices are worth a once-a-year indulgence. One of my favorite Thanksgiving sides, I am pleased to share these with you today. May your holiday be filled […]

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 […]

Cream of Mushroom Soup (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo, Vegan Option)

001

With the holidays upon us, there are some staples that one cannot live without this time of the year. Unfortunately, allergies, food sensitivities and auto-immune syndromes can often lead to feeling like we have to miss out on many of our favorite foods. Not so, I say! With the exception of baklava, there are few […]

Rainbow Salad

003

One day, my husband looked at me lovingly and said those five little words many of us never expect to hear: “Honey, I miss your salad.” Yes, my salad. I guess it had been a few weeks since I had made one of my nutrient-packed salads and my husband had a craving. Now if only […]

Healthy Lunchbox 2012: Peachy Coconut Streusel Muffins

001

When most people think of muffins, they think high-carb, grain-filled, low-nutritional value item. The last thing I want to feed my children is anything that meets that type of description. The great thing about grain-free cooking is that a majority of flours (nut, seed and coconut) are naturally high in fabulous fiber, protein and nutrients.  […]

Roasted Red Pepper Paleo Hummus

018

I must admit that, when giving up legumes, hummus was not high on my list of things I would miss. Don’t get me wrong…I love a good hummus. It’s just not one of those things that was on our regular shopping list.  In fact, previously, I might purchase hummus once a year and I might […]

Roasted Garlic, Basil and Tomato Paleo Tart

041

This week on FoodNetwork Summer Fest, food and garden bloggers are joining up to share their favorite tomato recipes. I don’t know about the other Summer Fest bloggers, but for me this was no easy task.  You see, tomatoes are a staple in our home. Quartered tomatoes are the perfect side with our morning breakfast. […]

Growing Up Isn’t So Bad, Peter Pan Squash Spiced Oven Fries

002

Today on FoodNetwork Summer Fest, food and garden bloggers are joining up to highlight the vibrant staple: Summer Squash. Oddly enough, the title “Summer Squash” has less to do with the time a squash is grown or harvested and more to do with the sustainability of a squash. You see, summer squash like zucchini, yellow […]

Plum Pickin’ Pineapple Jam

002

This time of the year our pantry and refrigerator is overloaded with all kinds of delicious produce. Most recently, with the help of Bountiful Baskets we have received an overabundance of fruits like cherries, peaches, nectarines, plums and pineapples. So much so that even my large family cannot keep up. What’s a girl to do?  […]

Fermented Spicy Garlic-Dill Cukes and Zukes

summer-fest-logo-92

Between the digestive issues my daughter has faced since she was a baby and my own celiac diagnosis, I have been somewhat obsessed with healing our guts for quite some time. For many years, I thought yogurt and liquid acidophilus were our only options.  It has not been until recently that I have learned the […]
