Stuffed Yams

I am saddened to say that for about the first 40 years of my life, I only had yams once a year. Typically on Thanksgiving and usually swimming in Karo syrup, brown sugar, and pineapple juice.  Just a little slice because I liked the…

Baked Halibut and Sweet Potato Fries

I only have one photo today of our lunch. Although I’m using it twice. I took several but evidently something happened between taking them and saving them. When I went to upload, all were just plain white, except one. With all the positives of…

Pretty In Pink ~ Lemon Lime Cakes with Coconut Frosting

Yep, that day is here. Love it or dread it, it’s pretty much a national holiday. For those of you who dread it, this is for you, courtesy of my friend Julie on Facebook. Ha! Thankfully, I’ve never had reason to dread it. Tony…

Cheesy Grilled Tuna with Spinach

The first thing I usually hear when I tell someone I’m allergic to gluten and dairy is, “Wow, that must be really difficult.” Does this look like I’m living the rough life to you? Surely not. On the contrary, although I would say going…

Easy Pasta Night

I’m noticing that since we made the decision to move and have put the house up for sale, that “easy” has been my go to word for a lot of things. It’s weird when your house is up for sale because you feel like…

Individual Chicken Pot Pies

Have I told you about my love affair with pie dough? We go way back. In fact, I look for ways to have more pie dough in my life. What’s not to love? It’s the crowning glory of  pie! Or it should be anyway….

A Cheesy Lunch

Do you ever have one of those days where it’s hard to get out of bed, it takes forever for your face to wake up, and all you can think about is comfort food? Well, I probably don’t even need to say it, but…

Because Sometimes, You Just Need To Start Your Day Off With Chocolate

We all have those days, don’t we? This is just a little treat that somehow helps to right what went wrong in our morning routine. Please drink it out of a beautiful cup, it makes all the difference in the world. Dairy Free Hot…

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…

Heaven in The Form of Caramel Corn

I’m not a big fan of crunchy, crispy, caramel corn. I like mine warm, gooey, and slightly salty with a hint of vanilla. It’s a totally different experience than regular caramel corn. It seems lavish and special. Because it  is special. It’s not one…

Coconut Ice Cream with Warm Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Peaches

Peaches, coconut ice cream, brown sugar, and warm, soothing Fall spices? Honestly, there aren’t enough descriptive words to tell you how delicious this was. I could eat this every day of my life. Next time I make it, which might just have to be…

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…
