This quick and easy ragoût is one of my favorite go-to meals on busy days. I usually workout at 5:00 in the evening. After an intense workout, the last thing I feel like doing is spending a lot of time cooking dinner. So on workout days, I either prepare dinner in the morning and set it in the slow cooker or I turn to one of my recipes that come together fast, like this incredibly tasty ragoût.
I have an extra special post for you today! I’ve compiled my family’s favorite gluten-free recipes that I make each year for our Thanksgiving dinner. I love cooking for our holiday feast, but it can be a little tricky to reinvent the Thanksgiving staples for those who have gluten intolerance.

Autumn in New York usually means a slight chill in the air, a visit to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard, and afternoon walks to admire the vibrant fall foliage. It doesn’t mean softly falling snow. But this morning I looked out the window only to see that it was snowing. I’m not ready for winter yet! Thankfully, the tiny snowflakes soon turned into rain.
I’m so excited to share this recipe with you today! These pork chops are mouthwateringly tender and cooked over a bed of sweet carrots and onions in the most intense savory gravy. The flavor is like a gourmet meal, but your slow cooker does almost all the work for you. And that also means that there isn’t a pile of pots and pans to clean up after dinner.
Quick one pan meals are one of the best time-saving strategies for getting healthy meals on the table on busy weeknights. This quick one pan, Spanish style chicken with cauliflower rice is super easy and big on flavor.
Today is an exciting day! We’re giving away a bottle of extra virgin olive oil. In the previous post, John wrote about the extraordinary health benefits of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). One of our favorite EVOO’s is Kasandrinos. It’s made from Koroneiki olives from the current year’s harvest and is certified organic. And the taste is…
Sometimes recipes are born in times of adversity. That’s how this easy paleo chicken with baby spinach and mini sweet peppers entered the world. I had planned to roast a turkey breast for dinner. But when I turned on the oven, I heard a pop! Hmmm….That didn’t sound good. I also noticed the power to the stove had gone out. Obviously, the breaker had tripped. I reset the breaker, but when I turned the oven on, again I heard that pop! That was it. My oven was dead.
So many kids are heading off to college this fall, and I know many of you moms are full of anxiety. This is especially true if your child has celiac disease. After being so careful at home to steer them clear of gluten, we worry if they will be as careful when they’re on their…
Mayonnaise is a favorite condiment in my house, but the highly-processed store bought variety is not something I want my family eating. It’s filled with unhealthy fats, preservatives, and chemicals. I’ve tried making mayo by hand with real food ingredients, but that was hard work and it only kept about a week in the fridge….
Who doesn’t love a good massage? Well, my kale is loving one right now as I’m getting ready to prepare a delicious kale salad tossed with pistachios, cherry tomatoes, and juicy Kalamata olives. But why am I massaging the kale first? If you’ve ever had a raw kale salad, you might have noticed that the kale was a little bitter and its texture a little coarse. However, if you massage the kale for only about five minutes, it will begin to soften and wilt. This seems to break down its dense cellulose structure leaving it easier to digest and much tastier.
Potatoes are a real comfort food and what better way to enjoy them in the summertime but in a rich, creamy potato salad? There’s just something about a cool dish of potato salad that makes a summer meal a true delight. At the same time, though, I used to shy away from eating potato salad. I used to think something this tasty couldn’t be good for me. After all, it’s potatoes and mayonnaise. We all know what potatoes do to our waistline, right? And commercially prepared mayo is processed with all kinds of ingredients that we really don’t want to eat. Fear not!

Do you eat 24-hour probiotic yogurt?
Well, if you’re one of three million Americans who have celiac disease, or if you’re one of seven hundred thousand people who have ulcerative colitis, or if you’re one of the twenty-five to forty-five million people in the U.S. suffering from irritable bowel syndrome, or you’re someone that is taking or has taken a lot of antibiotics, then you probably should be eating this healthy yogurt.
