Halloween Menu- Mexican Style

It’s interesting how certain gatherings become a tradition in families. I love family traditions and always welcome the beginning of a new one. A few years ago we started “celebrating” Halloween at our house. I put celebrating in quotes because really, none of us…

Breakfast For Dinner

Sometimes, you just need breakfast for dinner. I’m weird like that. I like leftover dinner for breakfast and find it hard to come up with a time of day where bacon and pancakes don’t sound delicious. Especially pumpkin pancakes with apple maple compote. Oh…

Rockfish In A Pocket – Asian Style with Tangy Sesame Salad

I am not a lover of fish. It’s not necessarily that I don’t like it, because I do. But…it just doesn’t seem like a real meal to me for some reason. So when I do make it, I like to add things to it,…

Veggie & Cheese Omelette

Sometimes I just can’t face another bowl of oatmeal or dairy free yogurt for breakfast. I actually prefer dinner leftovers for breakfast, but that’s another post I suppose. I like an occasional omelette, and having it filled with vegetables is certainly not  an unhealthy…

Spinach Pasta With Grilled Veggies, Chicken Thighs, and Walnut Pesto

Typically if I’m on my own for dinner I eat leftovers or toast, or cereal, or sometimes just dessert. However, all day today I was thinking about pasta and that Vegan Walnut Pesto I made a few days ago.  The day that I made…

Roasted Tomato, Pepper, & Basil Soup

This soup is a labor of love. It’s not hard, but it is time-consuming. Do it on a chilly morning when you have lots of chores to do but would rather be milling around your kitchen and filling your house with the amazing scents…

Super Simple Summer Salad

Looking for an easy and refreshing summer dinner? Look no further. This couldn’t be easier. It’s light and refreshing but filling enough to call a meal. Perfect for a hot summer evening when you don’t feel like standing over the stove. 1 Small Head…

Asian Shrimp Skewers with Hot and Spicy Slaw

This turned out so good that I think I might have to make it again in a few days. It’s a nice, light meal that is surprisingly packed with flavor. Perfect for a hot summer evening. I think it would also pair nicely with…

Super Simple Enchilada Casserole

I love Mexican food. I love authentic Mexican food, kinda sorta Mexican food, trashy street Mexican food, you name it, I’ll probably eat it. However, it’s not always friendly to those of us who have to eat gluten and dairy-free. Especially the traditional gooey,…
