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

Gluten Free Pizza Muffins

I know what you're thinking, how can pizza possibly be good as a muffin? Well, friends, let me tell you. These little pizza muffins are possibly one of the best gluten free things I have ever made. They're gooey, cheesy and are nearly better than actual pizza. And the best part is you wouldn't even know they are gluten free. I had to cut myself off, or I would have eaten all twelve of them....more

Turkey Apple Salad

Summer is such an awesome season, especially here in Michigan. There's just so much to do from going to the beach, checking out farmer's markets, hiking, and the list goes on and on. While I love everything that summer brings, the heat can make it hard to want to cook or bake anything. That leaves me on the constant lookout for easy to prepare meals that involve little to no cooking....more

Gluten Free Spaghetti alla Carbonara

My senior year of high school I made fast friends with an exchange student who was from Italy. She and I had a surprising amount of things in common, even joking that we were long-lost twins. While she was here in the states, my mom asked her for an authentic Italian recipe - because how fun is it to be able to make some nearly authentic Italian cuisine?! ...more

Bacon Avocado Tomato Salad

I love good old fashioned egg salad, but I can't say that I love what it's loaded with. All those calories love to try sitting right on my hips. No thanks. This bacon avocado tomato salad, although not very pretty, is a great alternative that is better for you and contains no dressings whatsoever. ...more
