Turkey and Sweet Potato Hash

I’m going to make this post short and sweet, much like the time it takes to prepare this meal. Turkey and Sweet Potato Hash is one of those Pinterest delights I stumbled upon, tried, and had to share! The sweetness of the ground turkey, sweet potato, and yellow bell pepper work together in harmony, and…

Egg “Muffins”2 Ways: Sausage and Onion (DF) & Spinach, Mushroom, Feta

The school year has started and now I am faced with a whole new world. My 4-year-old daughter has started Pre-K, and with that comes free time for Mommy — Whaaaaat??? It’s kind of amazing. But remember, “With great power (and free time) comes great responsibility.” I’ve decided to use my time wisely during school…

GF/DF Morning Glory Muffins

A few weeks ago, my family and I took a 12-hour road trip to Michigan. Trips like this take planning, patience, and delicious portable food — especially with a 3-year-old. Among the food and goodies we packed for our road trip was a batch of Morning Glory Muffins that I made special for my Gluten-free/Dairy-free…

Hummus Chicken with Squash and Zucchini

It’s Summertime, which means it’s bikini squash and zucchini season! My mother used to love sauteing yellow summer squash, zucchini, and onion when I was a kid. A year or so ago, I was browsing Pinterest for new dinner ideas and saw this Hummus Crusted Chicken recipe that’s made with squash, zucchini and onion and it was…

GF Thai Turkey Meatloaf

Thai Turkey Meatloaf is a really fun spin on the classic comfort food. Turkey offers a healthy spin, combined with flavorful soy sauce (or Tamari if gluten-free), sesame oil and ginger. My husband, David, maintains a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. This dish is perfect for him because it uses cooked Jasmine rice instead of breadcrumbs….

Easy Baked Pork Chops

  There is no other food that my husband, David, loves more than pork, be it bacon, ribs, ham, or in this case, pork chops. I love cooking foods that David loves, especially when they’re easy! I grew up on pork chops, but they were always grilled and seasoned with lemon pepper (which was amazing!)….

GF Michigan Olive Burgers

My husband’s family is originally from Michigan. We traveled to the “Mitten” last summer to visit and I was introduced to the Olive Burger. Olive Burgers are simply a burger that is topped with an olive/mayonnaise mixture. It is absolutely amazing, if you like green olives, that is. I happen to adore them, so I’m obviously…

Baked Chicken and Vegetables

When my daughter and I get home from her weekly dance class, sometimes I feel like there’s not enough time to put a healthy and complete dinner together… And then I discovered this gem of a recipe. Baked Chicken and Vegetables is incredibly healthy and delicious. It takes 30-40 minutes to bake, but the beauty…

GF California Shrimp Sandwiches

If you want an easy and quick dinner or lunch, you’ll love my California Shrimp Sandwiches. They’re a delightful combination of salty, briny capers, garlic, meaty shrimp, smooth and cool avocado, and salty, crispy bacon on toasted Gluten Free (GF) bread. Check them out! First, I make a mayonnaise concoction using 3 tablespoons of Mayo, 1…

Citrus Chicken

I love a dinner that’s simple to put together and healthy! Citrus Chicken isn’t quite as “citrusy” as you might think. Thanks to the Italian seasoning, thyme and rosemary, it’s a very savory meal that won’t directly remind you of a fruit salad. The citrus just brightens up the dish a bit. I happen to love…

Brussels Sprouts, Cranberry, Quinoa Salad

It’s not every day that I crave a salad, but a few weeks ago, it happened. I was inspired by a pin on Pinterest — Brussels Sprouts, Cranberry, Quinoa Salad. It has a fresh orange vinaigrette on it that keeps the flavor bright and clean. You might be thinking horrible thoughts about the Brussels sprouts,…

Deadpool’s Deadlicious Tacos (Carne Asada Tacos)

I love my husband for more reasons that I can count, but one of those reasons is that he is a total nerd. He took me to see the new Deadpool movie on Valentine’s Day, which is entirely fitting for our relationship. A couple weeks later, he ordered a package from Loot Crate. I’m still…
