We are now part of a CSA, an Eastern Seaboard CSA that gives us fresh (and mostly organic) veggies from farmers on the East Coast of the USA before the Farm Direct Coop starts up for the late Spring/Summer. The price for organic produce is much better through a CSA, and the food has [...]
This is the first recipe to include dairy on this blog. My daughters passed a dairy challenge at the end of August, and our diet has started to include dairy. While most of the recipes on this site will still be dairy-free, an occasional recipe that includes dairy will appear, like this one.
I recently made my Kale and Black Bean soup, and my step-father got very excited – apparently it tasted almost the way his father’s Linguiça and Kale soup had tasted. So, I listened to his suggestions, and ended up with this soup. I recently served this to several relatives at a family party, [...]
For those who avoid pork, or who would prefer to eat chicken, this is an adaptation of my Sausage stuffed pork with apples recipe.
This is incredibly easy, delicious, and can be on the table in 45 minutes. Serve with some quinoa, rice, or roasted potatoes and pair with roasted vegetables and/or a salad.
This is [...]
This is one of my favorite ways to cook fish! I usually find fish somewhat intimidating, but this recipe is easy, delicious, and almost fool-proof. This was inspired by an early episode of Good Eats and Alton Brown’s recipe. I highly recommend picking up his newest book – Good Eats: The Early [...]

This is a rich and flavorful meal that has a hearty feel to it. The combination of chicken meat, balsamic vinegar, and mushrooms leads to a wonderful depth of flavor and heartiness. A lighter meal with similar flavors is the Balsamic Chick Chick recipe, which pairs chicken with chick peas, plus the wonderful [...]
This is a delicious gfcf, gluten free, family-friendly recipe! It is also (if you double check ingredients!) a wheat free, dairy free, egg free, tree nut free, peanut free, and fish free recipe. This is a faux fast food recipe, ready in under 45 minutes. If served without rice, this recipe is acceptable [...]
My mother started making this “impossible pie quiche” for my grandmother, and then we’ve been able to alter it to make it gluten-free and dairy-free. This tastes like quiche to me, but without needing to make a crust, and the biscuit ingredients help it stay flavorful without needing cheese. There’s no real way [...]
I’ve been missing the creamy taste of Risotto, but haven’t had any arborio rice, nor the desire to stand over a stove stirring for an hour. I’ve added coconut milk to give the dish the creaminess you would usually get from the arborio rice. (Remember that coconut milk doesn’t give a coconut [...]keep looking »
