Smoked Salmon Pasta Salad

I’ve gone back and forth over the years on smoked salmon. We enjoyed it weekly for a while, but then I learned about all of the additives and nitrate issues. Ugh. That knowledge ruins so many awesome-tasting foods, doesn’t it? We were still enjoying some once in a while, but…

Addictive Chocolate Granola Bar Treats

Today, you’re going to love me and you’re going to hate me. I’m sharing my recipe for what we call “Chocolate Crack Bars.” See, look what they do to the gnome! Everyone gets excited when I pop these out of the freezer, which is far too often since they literally…

Cajun-Roasted Root “Chips”

I see it all the time. The perfect baked “french fry” that the author swears is the method to make them crisp, followed by mixed reviews of “these were amazing!” and “they didn’t work, not crisp at all!” And you know what, both sets of reviewers are right. If there…

Smoked Salmon Frittata Bites

Surprise!! Today we are honoring our good friend Amy of Simply Sugar & Gluten Free with a Virtual Baby Shower … For my contribution to the shower, I went out on a limb, choosing something savory that doesn’t involve any butter, cream, or cheese (hang with Amy, you are still going…

Did you enjoy the holidays? My husband and I don’t usually exchange gifts during the holidays, so this year, I felt like a little kid again with all of the wonderful surprises! Tony outdid himself in deal-finding (hello, awesome new, more powerful netbook for just $200!!), my in-laws as usual…

Holiday Pumpkin Bread (Gluten-Free & Vegan)

Even though I’ve never had a gluten-free holiday in the past, as the honorary dairy-free gal in the free-from foodie club, I was invited to join in on the Home for the Holidays: Gluten-Free Style event, hosted by Shirley at Gluten Free Easily. Truthfully, the timing couldn’t be better, as by…

Peanut Butter ‘n Honey Raisin Bran Cookies

The Attune Recipe Contest theme this month ($200 in groceries prize people!) is Homemade Gifts from the Kitchen. The playing field is wide open for entrants, but for my guest post on Attune this month, they gave me a more specific guide, high fiber. So what gift from the kitchen does…

Chili with a Chocolate Kick

I decided to join in for one last hoorah on Taste & Create and was paired up with Kat of the blog Study Food. She’s a relatively new food blogger, which made narrowing down options easier! I ended up going with her Chilli Con Sausage recipe, which was inspired by a…

Maple-Walnut Pear Crisp

My friend Sea at Book of Yum invited me to be a part of her Thanksgiving Recipe Carnival, and since she is so darn sweet, I simply couldn’t say no. The idea behind this particular event is a bit unique … she wants to show people that it doesn’t need to be difficult to…
