10 Tips for Successful Gluten-Free Baking

Over the past several years, I have learned a lot about baking gluten free. It is definitely a science, which the "just throw stuff in a pan" part of me struggles with—but I have learned several tips for success. A nice domed loaf ... that sunk later. The joys of GF baking! ...more
Thanks for this Tips. Me and My mother going try this !more

Spinach & Tomato Pie

I am really not a big fan of traditional pie crust. I don't like it in pies and I don't like it in anything else. I always look for ways to create a crust alternative, whether it's a graham cracker crust for desserts, or shredded hash browns for a recipe like this....more

Caramelized Onion and Kale Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

The leaves are beginning to turn vibrant shades of red and orange, the air is a bit chillier, and I am finding myself reaching for sweaters and blankets. Fall is my favorite season. I love the beauty it brings as well as the seasonal foods (apple crisp, pumpkin pie, cider...). However, as we begin the transition into fall, I find myself still trying to cling on to summer a bit. I've been accomplishing this by using up the last of my garden's bounty....more

Kale Mushroom Quinoa

This year was the first year that we planted a garden. Although it didn't do as well as I had hoped, we still got a good amount of produce out of it. Two of our veggies thrived big time though, our one cucumber plant and two kale plants. This was awesome since Steven is apparently obsessed with cukes (we literally were picking up to 7 or 8 a week for a couple weeks!) and I love kale. However, I discovered that I had no idea what to do with all the kale besides make salads....more

Gluten Free Cinnamon Biscuits

I typically only bake when I get a mad craving for something. Which in this case, I was dying to get my hands on a cinnamon roll. And at the mere mention of it, my husband decided he really needed one too. Not wanting the both of us to turn into ravaging cinnamon-roll craving monsters, I broke down and decided to make some....more

Broccoli and Sausage Pasta Toss

Summer is always a crazy busy time for us which means that I need recipes that are going to help me get dinner on the table quickly. Not only that, but I look for food that's going to taste good and will make enough for leftovers (I love leftovers for lunch). My husband just got a new job that will require him to bring lunch to work now too, so let the leftover wars begin....more

Lazy Stuffed Peppers

My sister was over the other night for dinner, which doesn't happen as often as it used to. As I was making this dish, and explaining it to Mel, she asked "You seriously haven't made this before?". I honestly had no good answer, I mean, it has 'Lazy' in the name, so why hadn't I made it? Regardless, I have made it now, and it was so lazy and delicious that I plan to make it again. ...more

The New Gluten Free Labeling Regluation

Hopefully you have heard that the FDA's gluten free labeling rules went into effect on August 5, 2014. So what does that mean and how does that impact the gluten free community (us)? I thought I would provide a quick overview for you to ensure that you know what is going on and what a GF label means now....more
This is both good and bad... The labeling is important, but the number of people who have ...more

Easy Potato, Bean and Sausage Skillet

My husband and I went camping a couple months ago, and since food is always a big part of any vacation, I wanted to make sure that we had some tasty dinners planned. We only have a tent though, not a big fancy trailer with a gourmet kitchen, so I knew that any recipe I picked needed to be easy to prepare. ...more

Gluten Free Crumb Topped Banana Bread

Normally I don't bake unless I have a reason to. Sounds odd, but whenever I have something sweet in the house I usually end up finishing it off way too fast. So to save myself the calories, I just don't bake very much, problem solved. However, this bread came to be because I had some over-ripe bananas that I didn't want to go to waste. ...more
