Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork

Updated 5-19-2013 Happy spring everyone! This month my daughter turns one, and so far there has been a whirlwind of potlucks, picnics and celebrations, beginning with Easter last weekend. I discovered the perfect barbecue dish for such occasions – pulled pork, slow-cooked in the crock pot. It just cooks all day long and literally falls apart […]

Dairy-Free Spinach & Mushroom Quiche

  Here’s a super easy recipe for a dairy-free quiche that is perfect for a holiday brunch. In fact, I was planning to take it to a pot-luck brunch this past Sunday but my teething 8-month-old kept me up all night and we didn’t make it to the brunch. The upside was that meant more […]

Roast Beef & Cabbage in Gluten-Free Teff Tortilla Wrap

  This is actually one of my husband’s creations. (I have been enjoying it up until cabbage went on the no-no list of foods to eat while breastfeeding!) A simple but tasty quick lunch recipe. Take a gluten-free teff tortilla and top it with some sliced roast beef and some grated goat cheddar. Place it under […]

Lamb Meatloaf with Basil & Millet

  Happy summer solistice!   It’s hard to believe but my daughter is two months old already. We are starting to get into a routine, I am getting better at multi-tasking, and I’m even getting ready to go back to work in a few weeks. Thankfully, all of the breastfeeding issues we were dealing with […]

Lamb Chili

  I’m now officially 8 months pregnant, and I guess you could say I’m nesting. I’m not really doing that much to clean or prepare the house, but what I have started doing is cooking – and freezing meals for the postpartum period.  I have heard that broths and stews are excellent for promoting lactation in […]

Spicy Lamb Meatballs With Yogurt Sauce In Teff Tortilla Wrap

  This was a surprisingly savory meal I threw together this week. I have been eating a lot of lamb & other red meat to try to build up my iron supply, and discovered ground lamb as an inexpensive alternative to lamb shanks, chops, or other cuts.  I always have plain goat yogurt on hand, and […]

Brown Rice Bowl With Black-eyed Peas & Ham

Happy new year 2012!  Hopefully you all enjoyed the holidays and all the delicious food that comes with it. Maybe you are wondering what to do with all your leftovers. Here’s a quick shot of what I had for lunch today, made from my leftover new years’ black-eyed peas and holiday ham.   Cooked brown […]

Fresh Black-Eyed Peas With Spinach & Okra

A couple weeks ago I started seeing fresh black-eyed peas at the farmers’ markets. These are awesome because you don’t have to soak them or cook them for hours, just shell them and cook on the stove top for 20 minutes. They taste so delicious and fresh! The other day I made a wonderful batch […]

Chicken In a Pot With Eggplant

    Last week my husband was diagnosed with candidiasis, an overgrowth of the harmful yeast candida albicans, after having issues with constrictions of his esophagus.  Now, in addition to avoiding gluten, dairy and sugar, he has to cut out all carbohydrates for 5-6 weeks.  That leaves pretty much meat and vegetables!  He was certainly […]

Green Garlic Shrimp Scampi With Vegetables Over Brown Rice

  Happy memorial day! My apologies for being behind on keeping my blog updated, but it’s been a crazy month here and I’m dealing with some personal medical issues that have temporarily kept me away. I’ll be back in action soon, but in the meantime, here’s a picture of a meal that my husband threw together the […]
