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 […]


Low-FODMAP Barbecue Sauce

This awesome recipe comes from the “Fun Without FODMAP’s” blog. It’s versatile, tangy, and slightly sweet – I used it on Black Bean Burgers and in Vegan Sloppy Joe’s. Enjoy!  


Smoked Salmon Tart with New Potato, Egg, and Dill Salad

I’m loving this little cookbook I found a few months ago, “The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook“. All the recipes use almond flour, and are gluten-free. My husband prepared the Smoked Salmon Tart with a Herb Tart Crust, and I paired it with an original salad of with new potatoes, caraway, […]


Cajun Pork Burgers with Corn Maquechoux

We celebrate late summer with a twist on classic grilled sausage and corn-on-the-cob: Rachael Ray’s Cajun Pork Burgers from “Thirty Minute Meals 2“, with Corn Maquechoux. Pronounced “MOCK SHOE”, this is a dish from southwest Louisiana that the Cajuns learned from local Native American tribes. The original recipe from The […]
