I felt very inspired after listening to the “How I Built This Podcast” with Alice Waters, the founder of Chez Panisse Restaurant (and arguably of the seasonal, local, sustainable, and organic food movement). We’ve had a copy of her cookbook, “The Art of Simple Food“, for years, and I always […]
Breads, cakes, cookies, pasta – all the yum, none of the wheat!
The best thing about this recipe is that it produces more curry sauce than you need for dinner; save the leftovers and serve for lunch the next day with a fried egg and a scoop of rice. The recipe for turmeric coconut curry sauce comes from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. […]
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!
Since we’re on vacation, we’re not doing much cooking this week. The meal plan includes a few favorites we prepared before leaving, including an improved recipe for Mango Bread. I’m also excited to include a link to a new General Goodness blog post where I share three great recipes for […]
I really noticed the changing of seasons this week; not because it got colder (we live in Northern California, after all!) but because it was dark at dinner time. You’ll notice that a few of our meal photo’s don’t look great; I’m not a professional photographer, and while I’ll try […]
The Whole Life Challenge is back! Or more accurately, we’re participating in the fall WLC for the next six weeks. This week’s meal plan is very Paleo (with one exception at the end of this post), and includes many of our favorites from previous Challenges. Two new recipes that I’m […]
I wanted to have fun this week, and also make weeknight dinners as kid-friendly as possible without boring me or my husband. I brainstormed three theme burgers, and I’m really happy with how they were received (e.g. eaten without complaint). It wasn’t all burgers, all the time, though. In between, […]
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 […]
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, […]
This recipe comes from the original “30 Minute Meals” by Rachael Ray. We adapted to make it low-FODMAP friendly, and we took the theme a step further by creating an Indian-inspired Mango Chutney Salsa to top the burger. This was an easy and delicious burger, perfect for a weekend cookout […]
