Stuffed Cabbage With Roasted Potatoes and Root Vegetables

Mmm…cabbage, beef, spicy sausage in a rich tomato sauce. Potatoes, yams, and beets roasting in the oven with olive oil, garlic, and rosemary.  A comforting combination for a very chilly day. Sometimes, I simply cannot face another green salad. I long for hearty, “grandma-like”…

Monday Morning Power Breakfast

Ahhh, Monday morning. A bittersweet beginning. Happy to greet the start of what will hopefully be a productive and joyful week, but longing for just one more relaxing Sunday. I have a Monday morning theory. I believe that if you start off with a…

Veggie & Goat Cheese Flat Bread

When I went gluten-free, all I could think about was bread. Well, pretty much any carbohydrate that I wasn’t supposed to consume really. At first it seemed as though I would just have to learn to live with what was being sold in the…

Where Do I Start?

Let’s just face the truth, going gluten-free is a little stressful and a lot overwhelming. Many people not only have to go gluten-free, but dairy-free, corn-free, egg-free, soy-free… When someone receives that kind of news from their doctor, usually the first thing they experience is panic…

Gluten Free, Dairy Free Fudgesicles!

Oh yes, you heard me right, and they are mighty tasty. The funny thing is that I actually bought them by accident! I thought they were the soy vanilla bars that are covered in dairy free chocolate. Not only did I not notice when…

Spicy Grilled Salmon with Garlic & Ginger Green Beans & Quinoa

In an attempt to live “healthier” I’m trying to add more fish into our family meals. I’m not a fish lover. When we go out to eat, typically I will order a nice, bloody, Rib-eye steak with potatoes and a veggie. (Enter a day-dreamy…

Arm Yourself With Knowledge

Statistics show that 1 out of every 100 people in America suffer from Celiac disease.  About.com and several Celiac websites say that researchers believe that there are more than 2 million people in the United States with Celiac disease who live every day feeling…

Dairy Free Yogurt Anyone?

Coconut milk yogurt is surprisingly good. This particular brand has several different flavors, my favorites are blueberry and raspberry. I’ve used this yogurt in all kinds of recipes that call for cow’s milk yogurt and I’ve even used it in place of cow’s milk…

A Must Have

Unexpected gifts sometimes turn out to be the best gifts!  My aunt Judy bought me this cook book and surprised me with it several months ago. Some of its pages are dog eared, it is filled with sticky notes, there are food stains on…

Gluten Free Focaccia Mix

Simply put, I love this product. Chebe has an entire line of mixes. So far, I’m stuck on this one.  I can’t get it out of my head. I’ve made focaccia bread with it, numerous pizzas, snacks for parties…the things you can add to…

Garbanzo Bean Flour?

  So I need to be truthful here.  I have spent the majority of my life despising the Garbanzo Bean.  I’m not even really sure why, but it’s probably because it was something I was forced to eat as a child! (I mean really, isn’t…

Organic Hotdogs

I have to admit, I’m impressed with these hot dogs.  Typically, when I eat a hot dog it’s because I’m starving and I want something to eat fast and I try to ignore what it’s made out of.   Not only are they gluten…
