This is adapted from a recipe I clipped this past spring. It is gluten, dairy, soy, and egg free. It could easily be vegan/vegetarian and corn-free by checking ingredients.
Everyone in our house loves asparagus, but they love it as soup even more – they frequently have seconds (or thirds!) of this soup. [...]
My husband came up with this recipe, and the girls liked the squash a lot better than my “just steam it” veggie strategy. We scarf it down each time it’s made!
3 yellow squash, sliced in circles (I’m sure zucchini would work too)
1/2 cup cornmeal
splash olive oil
pinch kosher salt
4 cloves garlic, minced [...]
For the marinade:
3-5 lbs chicken pieces (wings, legs, thighs all work well)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 garlic-sized piece of ginger, minced
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup gf soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 TBS apple cider vinegar or rice wine vinegar
Mix everything but the chicken in a microwave bowl, heat 1 minute and stir until brown sugar is [...]
When Applesauce is this easy, why would you buy it?

freshly ground nutmeg (optional)
Put apples, cinnamon and sugar in crock pot.
Stir in water, lemon juice and nutmeg
Cook low: 5-7 hours
Cook high: 2.5-3.5 hours

Quick tip -
When a recipe calls for couscous or barley, a great substitute (with even more nutritional oomph) is quinoa.
It’s also incredibly easy – rinse 1 part quinoa in a few changes of water. Add 2 parts stock or water and bring to a boil. Let simmer 15-20 minutes, until water is absorbed.
This is my favorite. It’s an adaptation of a few recipes, plus some twists of my own. The basic concept of adding Ginger Ale came from Alton Brown of Good Eats. Brilliant. Adding a little fresh ginger boosts the taste a bit, and the sauce ends up very yummy, but it [...]
This is one of those easy-peasy recipes that is almost not worth writing down. But it’s so yummy (and the picture came out so well!), that I wanted to share.
This is a delicious gfcf, gluten free recipe! It is also a wheat free, dairy free, egg free, tree nut free, peanut free, fish [...]
I love candied nuts. Unfortunately, most commercial candied nuts contain wheat starch for some unknown reason. I am sure there are dozens of recipes out there for candied nuts, but this is one I just threw together when my sweet tooth and almost-empty cupboard collided. They are fabulous as a snack, over [...]
I’ve always loved these, but they never turn out quite right. Then I saw a recipe on another website and played around with it until it worked well. This was a huge hit for brunch – there were no leftovers, and the children AND adults were wishing I had made more! The [...]
