Parsnip, Bacon and Carrot Medley

Okay, so one of my goals for the New Year is to try a couple of vegetables/fruits I haven’t before tried.  One of those is parsnips.  I’ve heard about them, seen them in the store, and I get the feeling they are probably pretty good, but I just haven’t up and tried them yet.  I …

Orange-Barbecue Broiled Chicken – Gluten Free

100_3504

Necessity is the mother of invention…or something like that.   I am so inconsistent about my menu plan.  I’ll be really organized and plan a week’s worth of meals for a few months, and then I’ll fall off the wagon and can’t think of a thing to cook for dinner for the next few weeks. …

Turkey Meatloaf Gluten Free

100_3573

I’m a big fan of comfort foods.  It’s a shame, really.  Why aren’t comfort foods ever the foods we consider most healthy?   Not cool. Thankfully, there are ways to provide myself and my family with comfort foods and make them a LITTLE healthier, and still tasty.  This turkey meatloaf is proof of that (although …

Strawberries and Cottage Cheese

100_3661

One of my favorite new breakfasts is this easy, simple, and naturally gluten-free dish:  strawberries and cottage cheese!   1/2 cup of nonfat cottage cheese has 80 calories, and, and it gives you 21 grams of protein.  A full cup of strawberries (halved) is only 49 calories, and have 3.3 grams of fiber!  A cup …

Gluten Free Bread (Udi’s Copycat)

100_3494

    Since discovering that I couldn’t ever eat gluten again, I’ve tried a few GF bread recipes.  I had so many failures, and got so frustrated, that I accepted that I just wouldn’t be able to make a homemade bread ever again….and I didn’t attempt for nearly a year.   I found a recipe …

Easy Pina Colada (Non Alcoholic)

100_3491

I’m sick of winter.   It feels like here in Utah, our winter is almost half the year.  We often have snow starting in November, and continuing until March. 5 MONTHS!  And we’re only halfway done. I get desperate, man.  I really do.  I’m pretty sure this lack of sunshine, abundance of cold and smog, …

100_3280-1024x768

I first made these PB cups over the summer.  I am proud to say that I haven’t made them since, but man, oh man, I’ve thought about them often…and I think now is the perfect time to give in and indulge!     Homemade Peanut Butter Cups (Adapted from Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body) …

For those of you who enjoyed canning tons of apple pie filling over the fall, this may be right up your alley.  I didn’t do a lot of apple pie filling, but I did a fair amount of peach pie filling, so I believe I will have to make these with my peach as a …

Peaches, Peaches, and More Peaches

413609

Oh man, oh man, I love this part of summer….the part where we get to eat fresh that which we (or others) have planted and harvested.   My mom’s peach trees have done amazingly well this year.  We have no idea why this year was so great, but man, was it ever.  Bless my mama’s …

Gathered the Harvest…Now What? Spaghetti Sauce with Zucchini and Yellow Squash

100_3376

We had a good time yesterday plucking food from our garden.  We finally picked a few tomatoes, and we also have two large zucchinis, 3 yellow squash, some basil, parsley, and grapes.  Made me smile, looking at my proud Buddy Boy holding his basket of produce.:-)   Now, to make sure it doesn’t go to …
