Dairy-Free Spiced Honey “Butter”

I think the hardest thing about running a blog (at least for me) is making the time so I don’t feel like I am “missing out” on the fun stuff. There are so many fabulous blog events, and try as I might, I just can’t seem to get posts and…

Chipotle Chicken and Chard Chili

How is that for an alliterate recipe title? So thanks to Lacey’s response on my “how to use these veggies” post, I discovered a great new-to-me recipe from Giada of the Food Network. Of course, her recipe needed a few little tweeks. Cheese? Not in our house. How much fennel?…

Don’t Pinch My Blog, I’ve Got a Green Recipe!

As mentioned in my last post, we are on week one of our first CSA. It was like Christmas pulling out one surprise veggie after another … until I got to the final item, the lump of coal at the bottom. “What’s this?” I said. It didn’t quite look like kale…

Creamy Green Garlic Soup

This recipe is an ever so slight detour from my ususal “grocery store” fare (though regular garlic can be used, as noted), because I have at last joined the CSA world! Last week I got my very first ever CSA veggie box. Now that we live reasonably close to some of…

Jam-Filled Snackin’ Muffins (or Soda Rolls)

I swear, sometimes I feel like Celine reads my mind when it comes to trialing out baked goodie recipes. I purchased some all-fruit spread solely for the purpose of coming up with some jam-filled muffins and PB&J granola for my husband’s morning snack … when low and behold, I opened…

Random Bites of Autumn Deliciousness

I haven’t created many unique and stellar recipes this past week … in fact, since we have been quite busy, I have been enjoying simplicity a bit. Don’t worry, this isn’t just a “what I ate” post. Think of it like a collection of mini recipes. Lunch all week has…

Acorn Squash with Sweet Sage “Butter”

I have been so impressed with how well our herb plant not only survived the move, but also how much it is thriving, even in this cooler climate. Must be all of the great sun it is getting in our very bright new (to us) kitchen. I have found good use…

Cauliflower “Risotto” (Grain-Free AND Dairy-Free)

Recently, I stumbled across the idea of Cauliflower “Rice” on a Paleo / Primal Diet blog. Smitten by this idea for incorporating even more veggies into my dinner (and sneaking cauliflower in on my husband, hehe), I went with it. My first attempt was this Cauliflower “Risotto,” which amazingly turned…

Pulled Pork Potato Planks or Boats

Have you ever driven the Nevada route from Las Vegas to Tahoe? Lets just say it isn’t a foodie haven. When we finally spotted a Safeway (3/4 of the way through the trip) we were overjoyed (yes, it is that pathetic). Ravenous and cold, we headed for the very petite…

Treading Lightly into Fall: Cheap Chinese Chicken Salad

**Don’t Forget, Giveaway: 9 Special Diet Cookbooks, 9 Winners!** Do you find your tastes migrating as the summer heat dwindles? I mean, I know I will be craving hearty soups and pumpkin goodies very soon, but even my salad desires are slowly drifting. Since we will be moving to a…

Trusting Your Gut: Creamy Thai Tomato Soup

I am not always much for stories, but today, I just need to share. Luckily, my story (or two) includes a recipe (a really delicious one in fact) to reward all of you who stick around. Two weeks ago, I was in the kitchen, experimenting yet again. I have been in…
