Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I’m kicking off the new year with this savory chicken stir fry that’s flavored with a beautiful medley of Indian spices.
Happy December! I’m so excited to share the recipe for this savory frittata with goat cheese, leeks, and sage with you today. This quick and easy dish is perfect for a special holiday brunch.
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.
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.
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…
Today is an exciting day! I am giving away a 3-pack of Primal Kitchen Mayo. 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,…
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!
When you were first diagnosed with celiac disease (CD), you probably began to follow a diet of elimination and replacement. You eliminated all foods from your diet that contained gluten and replaced them with similar gluten free (GF) ones. You eliminated all medicines and supplements that contained gluten and replaced those. You eliminated all cosmetics…
When you want something healthy with tons of flavor for dinner but don’t have time to fuss, this nutritious paleo and gluten free meal comes together in a flash. The secret? An hour before you’re ready to cook, marinate the chicken breasts.
You’ve just been diagnosed as an adult with celiac disease (CD). Your doctor tells you that in order to prevent further damage to your intestines and to heal properly you must go on a strict gluten-free (GF) diet. You leave the doctor’s office very unhappy with the prescription but relieved that you might have found an…
It’s casserole time! And today I’m serving it up Tex-Mex style! This healthy Tex-Mex chicken and rice casserole is a fun and tasty meal for any day of the week. I’m seasoning the rice with an array of spices (basil, chili powder, cumin, and black pepper) before tossing it with chicken, colorful bell peppers, and tomatoes in a casserole dish.
