Chicken in Creamy Mushrooms, Spinach and Artichokes

Chicken in Creamy Mushrooms, Spinach and Artichokes

So, there’s been a slight change in my husband’s diet for his autoimmune issue. There’s a whole lot of science behind it, and you’ll notice I tag this dinner as “lectin free”. If you want to know more then read “The Plant Paradox”, but he’s giving it a try. This means dinners that I...

Spaghetti Squash with Beef, Mushrooms and Spinach

Spaghetti Squash with Beef, Mushrooms and Spinach

I’ve mentioned before that my husband has an autoimmune disease. For this reason he has eaten sans gluten for over three years, but in early January he decided to try the AIP diet, or autoimmune protocol. It’s depressingly basic and also new, so the world of Pinterest recipes has not yet caught up. Luckily...

Pizza Casserole

Pizza Casserole

I had pulled a recipe for an upside down pizza casserole from a magazine and tweaked the heck out of it (no olives! no bread cubes! more veggies!). Basically, if you toss anything with sauce and pizza herbs and top it with cheese, it tastes like pizza, so why not hide a crap ton...

Naked Burger Salad

Naked Burger Salad

The title is the worst, but it’s what’s listed on restaurant menus and who I am to change it up? This is a favorite order of my husband’s, seeing as he’s a gluten-hating burger-loving guy. I too, am a fan. I’ve been making versions of this for a while for our dinners, but usually...

Pumpkin Waffles

Pumpkin Waffles

Waffles. I used to crush the multigrain Eggos, three at a time with butter and maple syrup, but the Belgian waffles on menus were never my thing. I couldn’t get the butter into those giant crevices the way I wanted to and then I found the waffle itself to be all air, no substance....

With life with three kids in full gear and a new, unshakable sense that my afternoons with my soon-to-be first grader are fleeting, my kitchen creativity has slowed. I’m not pulling recipes from magazines, perusing blogs and trying to recreate meals I ate out at restaurants. My love for food and cooking is still...

I’d Like Your Help

Why do I have a blog? Sometimes when the creativity is lagging and I’m pressed for time I have to get back to my primary intentions. Though it may have begun as a kind gesture gifted from my brother-in-law, I’ve kept it up for six years for several specific reasons.

What my Kids Eat in a Day

What my Kids Eat in a Day

Thought I’d share this; perhaps you’ll get a tip or two or have a suggestion for me, which I would love. I have found that if you want to get a bunch of moms riled up, start talking about how you feed your kids. Tempers get hot, real quick. Please don’t read any judgment...

What I Eat in a Day

This was suggested to me by a life long friend – a foodie who shares my sentiments about food; namely, how do we balance healthy eating with all of the wonderful, delicious options out there? 

11 Tips to Use Your Freezer Better

11 Tips to Use Your Freezer Better

During my first year as a high school cooking teacher, I received a crash course on freezing from my 70-year-old coworker. Our budget was tight, and wasting food was a cardinal sin. I’ll never forget when she threw a gallon of skim milk in the freezer because of a snow delay—and it came out...
