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 […]

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 […]

Spaghetti Squash with Black Beans & Spinach

  Spaghetti Squash with Black Beans & Spinach   First off let me say that I recently dropped my camera and ever since it has been hit or miss getting it to focus.  Sometimes it turns out great and others not.  I plan to get a new, better camera sometime this fall.  Until then I will […]

Gluten-Free Brown Rice Lasagna With Sheep’s Milk Ricotta Salata

  Despite the fuzzy picture (my camera’s been on the fritz lately), this is the most exciting entree to come out of my kitchen in years.  I had not eaten lasagna since I went gluten-free and dairy-free four years ago.  However, I recently discovered ricotta salata, a sheep’s milk ricotta that I can tolerate on occasion.  […]

Balsamic Dijon Marinated Chicken With Fingerling Potatoes

  Back at the farmers market this weekend, I found some crisp spinach, amazing heirloom tomatoes, and tasty varieties of fingerling potatoes.  Add a split chicken breast, Dijon, and some Bariani balsamic vinegar & olive oil, and I had the perfect Saturday night dinner.  I owe Mark Bittman of the NY Times for the idea […]

Green Smoothies For Healing And Wellness

  As you may have read in my recent posts, I have been nursing a fractured hand after a bike accident over the 4th of July weekend.  In fact, yesterday was three weeks from the incident and I went to the doctor and was allowed to remove the splint permanently because the bone is healing […]

Easter Brunch: Polenta Pizza

  One of my favorite things to do on Easter is going to the farmers’ market and seeing all the blooming flowers and fresh spring vegetables and fruits coming in season.  Green garlic, asparagus, sugar-snap peas, ripe strawberries….yum!!  So I spent my Sunday off having a lazy cup of coffee and cooking some more elaborate meals than I normally […]

Tuscan White Beans and Spinach

  Forgive me, dear reader, for my lack of posting over this eventful holiday season.  A 10-day road trip, trying to go back to work full-force immediately afterward, and a week-long illness have really cramped my style.  I am still not 100-percent but today for the first time I woke up with a little bit […]

The Good Egg: Pasture-Raised Eggs & Sweet Potato Hash Browns

  If you’ve never tried a truly pasture-raised egg, you have never had a real egg.  If you’re not sure if you’ve had one, you probably haven’t.  You’d know it if you saw it.  That bright orange yolk and the colorful shell that’s difficult to crack are unmistakable.  Once you’ve tried one, you’ll never go […]

Black-Eyed Peas & Spinach

  One of the most common concerns of gluten-free, dairy-free, and/or sugar-free dieters is, “I just don’t have time to cook dinner every night.”  I hear you – yes, I used to be the one who made dinner-in-a-box several times a week.  When I first realized I would have to change my diet, I was […]
