Gluten Free

Breads, cakes, cookies, pasta – all the yum, none of the gluten!

Meal Plan / Week 14 July 2019

Another unusual week – all my boys went out of town and left me home alone, so I prepared mostly snack foods with only a few entrees. Even when I’m prepping for one, I still try to make healthy and tasty food. Enjoy these recipes, including sweet Vegan Carrot Cake, […]

 

Chicken White Bean Salad

I was preparing dinner for one, so I wanted to make something fast, inexpensive, and delicious. A lovely olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing fancies up this simple salad, made of pantry staples – canned chicken breast and canned cannelloni beans. This salad is fresh and light on a bed […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 13 June 2019

All my boys were out of town this week, leaving fewer mouths to feed, and fewer meals to prepare – four dinners and one easy breakfast. Each of these recipes provides ample leftovers. Enjoy! I’m also excited to share a recent article I wrote that was published by the Whole […]

 

Sheet Pan Pork with Fennel and Apples

We wanted to love this easy one-pan meal, but the flavors didn’t quite mesh together. If we were going to make this again, we’d use a combination of yellow potatoes and turnips to partner with the apples, instead of fennel. We’d also keep the oven at a constant temperature and […]

 

Summer Squash Bread

This is an easy grain-free sweet bread, made with bright yellow summer squash (aka zucchini) and flavored with pumpkin butter and toasted walnuts. The original recipe from the Food Network called for unsweetened apple butter, but we had some Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter on hand, so we used that instead. […]

 

Avocado Lime Tarts

We used the receipt of a few pounds of Bacon Avocados in our farm basket as an excuse to look beyond guacamole and expand our avocado recipe repertoire. Enter these beautiful individual tarts from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” We served these cuties for dessert after a fun dinner […]

 

Roasted Trout with Bacon

This may be one of our favorite preparations for trout, ever! Our eight-year-old enjoyed it so much, he was willing to try to cheek meat (which he loved)! We served this alongside our Roasted Cauliflower with Cumin, Chili, and Almonds.  

 

Oven “Fried” Chicken with Sweet Potato Salad

If you’re looking to try a preparation for chicken breasts that mimics southern fried chicken but without any frying, this is an easy recipe for you. The flavorful breading is made of cornmeal instead of wheat flour, and we kept our version dairy-free by using vegan Parmesan. We paired this […]

 

Simple Avocado Toast

It really doesn’t get any more beautiful than this – fresh avocado, warm crusty bread, olive oil, kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. We love Udi’s Millet-Chia bread, but really, any two slices of your favorite toast will do. This is a great building block for so many delicious […]
