Mango Bread

This bread is light and ever-so-slightly sweet from the natural flavor of ripe mangoes. All you really need is a blender and a loaf plan to make this dairy-free and wheat-free bread. It’s simple and perfect when paired with a cup of steaming hot black coffee. Enjoy!  

 

Stir-Fried Spicy Asparagus

We adapted this veggie side dish from a recipe by David Tanis in The New York Times, and in our humble opinions, it’s perfect. Simple, fast, and versatile – serve it with fish, pasta, rice, meat – we’re definitely making it again!  

 

Miso Butter Salmon

This salmon dish is one of our family go-to’s because it’s easy and delicious. The recipe comes from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.“, a cookbook I’ll be referencing a lot this fall while I train for a half-marathon (I’m trying to avoid getting hangry by having lots of filling […]

 

Chicken Baked with Potatoes and Cherry Tomatoes

This recipe comes from Julia Moskin in The New York Times. It’s a simple meal, inspired by Italian techniques. I left the chicken to marinate while I prepped the potatoes. My teenager is responsible for washing the dishes after dinner; he was definitely psyched that this was a one-pot meal! […]

 

Olive-Rosemary Bread (Paleo)

I’ve finally found a recipe for a gluten-free and dairy-free bread that lasts longer than a few days in the refrigerator, toasts really well, and works for both sandwiches (e.g. ham, vegan cheese, and mustard) and breakfast toast with a shmear of vegan cream cheese! I modified the original recipe […]

 

Cinnamon Coffee Cake (Paleo)

Another winning Paleo offering based on a recipe from “The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook” by Elana Amsterdam. For the past few years, I’ve moved away from sweetening my coffee; instead, I sprinkle cinnamon over the top of a steaming mug of black coffee in the morning. Cinnamon has a sweet […]

 

Sweet Potato Pancakes

My boys love when we make pancakes for breakfast on the weekends. Of course, they’re looking forward to maple syrup and hoping for chocolate chips. As their parents, we’re looking forward to sneaking in some healthy veggies into their morning meal. This recipe comes from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat […]

 

Apricot Bars

We’re constantly on the lookout for better snack options. My husband and I both enjoy something a bit sweet mid-afternoon or after dinner. Since realizing that processed sugar upsets my stomach and drains my husband of his energy, we’ve opted for natural sweeteners like date past and applesauce, with the […]

 

Vegan Sloppy Joe’s with Gluten-Free Flatbread

This recipe from Forks Over Knives was easy to adapt based on the food we had available in our pantry. My older son had three helpings (plus a fourth piece of the Gluten-Free Flatbread from Feasting on Fruit) and all of us enjoyed the meal immensely. It was simple and came […]
