Indonesian Shrimp Fried Brown Rice Recipe

Indonesian Shrimp Fried Brown Rice - this healthy dish is so flavorful - you have to try this!

This Indonesian Shrimp Fried Brown Rice is so flavorful, not your typical fried rice recipe. Years ago, my husband and I were fortunate enough to visit Bali. It was an amazing experience, and to this day, I have wonderful memories of the beautiful landscape, the friendly smiles, all the friends we got to know better, and the feasts we were treated to. One of my favorite memories from that trip was the fried rice we were served each morning called Nasi Goreng. I think I could eat that … [Continue Reading...]

Gluten Free Mexican Taco Nacho Mac and Cheese Recipe

Gluten Free Taco Nacho Macaroni and Cheese - a quick, easy, healthy and delicious kids dinner recipe + 3 tips on how to get your kids active in the kitchen

This Gluten Free Mexican Taco Nacho Mac and Cheese is a quick and easy dinner idea that comes together in less than 30 minutes. My youngest son is a little foodie just like his older brothers, although I'd say he takes it to the next level. He has his own signature spice/herb blend that he sprinkles on top of just about everything he eats (we even bottled it up to make it look official). He is also the king of condiments (chimichurri and guasacaca avocado "green sauce" are two of his … [Continue Reading...]

Roasted Broccoli Red Bell Pepper Pancetta Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Roasted Broccoli Red Bell Pepper Pancetta Breakfast Casserole - great for a crowd at brunch!

This Roasted Broccoli Red Bell Pepper Pancetta Breakfast Casserole is perfect for a crowd at brunch. This past weekend, our church had a farewell party for our Associate Pastor where everyone brought something. I've always loved the idea of potluck meals where everyone makes something different and you end up with a smorgasbord. That's something I truly appreciate about our church - the feeling of community. It almost sounds a bit old fashioned in this day and age of high tech where … [Continue Reading...]

This Indian Spiced Quinoa Pilaf with Peas recipe takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. Fragrant with whole spices, including cardamon, cinnamon, cloves and cumin seeds, this side dish is deliciously healthy. A number of years ago, I took a few Indian cooking classes from a local woman.

Before I took her classes, I was totally intimidated at the thought of cooking Indian food. … [Continue Reading...]

Gluten-Free Swedish Pancakes Recipe

Gluten-Free Swedish Pancakes with Fresh Strawberries and Honey - these thin pancakes are so tender, they practically melt in your mouth

Have you ever eaten at IHOP? Before we had kids, we used to go to IHOP on the weekends with friends and eat brunch, then head over to the tennis courts for an afternoon of fun. Looking back, it's hard to imagine how much free time we had. One of my favorite things to order were the crepes or Swedish pancakes. A few months ago when we were away on vacation, we stopped at an IHOP for breakfast and I ordered those crepes with strawberries on top. Let's just say that sometimes good memories … [Continue Reading...]

Gluten-Free Low Carb Pasta with Asparagus Pancetta and Pine Nuts - this takes just 15 minutes to make - so simple and delicious!

This light, gluten-free, low carb Pasta with Asparagus Pancetta and Pine Nuts comes together in just 15 minutes. I love pasta but at my age, it's easy to pack on some extra pounds if I eat it too often. So, when I made this Pasta with Asparagus Pancetta and Pine Nuts recently, I swapped out pasta with gluten-free, low-carb tofu shirataki noodles. Visually, these shirataki noodles look just like spaghetti, although their texture is a bit crunchy. They come in 4-ounce packs in the … [Continue Reading...]

There's something about the swirling that makes even the most unartistic person feel artistic. This recipe uses a combination of oat flour and almond flour, making it naturally gluten-free, with a really nice texture and a hearty feel to it. I've used oat flour and almond flour in quick breads very successfully … [Continue Reading...]
