Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Corn and Black Bean Salsa

April 22nd, 2013 by Jenny Manseau


shrimp-0051I would grill all year-long if I could. This year we had so much crazy snow drifts that it was a bit impossible to do. I love my grill dearly…great flavors, you can grill pretty much anything, its outside with the sun and the fresh air, easy clean up, and less fats are used! We grill steaks, chicken, burgers, hot dogs, hot sausages, shrimp, fish, pizza, and veggies…tons of veggies! Last year I bought one of those little grill baskets for I think $3.00 and it works like a charm, especially for mushrooms.

Last week we got the tank refilled and have used it quite a bit since. We are both trying to get in better shape and eat healthier (a follow-up post to my I’m on a mission…post will appear soon, I promise!). So the grill comes in very handy for (more…)

Italian Polenta Pizza (For Two)

April 5th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie

I really could not wait to share with you this fun dish that I made. Polenta pizza - something adults, teens, and children love. And it's healthy! Being gluten free and vegetarian sometimes can be a little bit of a task in the kitchen, nevertheless when you have in-season, fresh vegetables and garden herbs and spices, coupled with a few other ingredients in the kitchen, there is no telling what you can come up with.Screen shot 2013-02-12 at 10.02.05 PM (more…)

Quinoa Pizza Bites Recipe

April 4th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

I must preface this recipe with the fact that up until this point, I did not think I liked quinoa. The main reason for my dislike of this seed was that I had a poorly prepared dish with it last year and thought that no matter what, the little gluten-free gems could never taste good. Welp folks, I was wrong. This easy quinoa recipe can be used as an alternative to gluten-free pizza dough and will rock your taste-bud’s world.BitesServing

While shopping for munchies, I noticed the Pizza Al Pollo Asado at Trader Joe's. This Mexican-inspired pizza is made on a corn masa crust and is layered with grilled chicken, refried beans, jack cheese and salsa. I honestly had not noticed it before and according to the packaging, it is made with no gluten ingredients, so I gave it a shot.dffc5c97f4f107e8cd2c62d15f7c265b

Gluten-Free Pesto Fettuccine with Chicken

March 11th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

Since I received the world’s greatest fettuccine noodles in the mail (thank you Cappello’s Gluten-Free), I was determined to make nothing but the classiest sauce to go with them. But, the problem is…I’m not a classy cook. I’m a “that’s too many steps, I’ll probably mess something up” type of cook, which is why this recipe for Pesto Cream Sauce screamed, “I’M YOUR PERFECT MATCH!” during the search my mother and I conducted.FettucineServing-300x300

Curried Cauliflower with Peas Recipe

March 8th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

A big thank you to Aida Mollenkamp (see my interview with her here) for this recipe from her recent book "Keys to the Kitchen." I have made this twice, both times with much success. The children (now almost 9 and 7) loved it as well. I put my family chef spin on it so it's not quite as spicy. I hope you'll try it, even if you think your kids are picky eaters. It's worth a shot!currycaulidish

Are you ready to rock your taste-buds' world? If you answered that question with a big fat “YES” then I have the recipe for you!

First step, make sure you have some gluten-free gnocchi on hand. Whether you make it yourself, or buy it premade, either will work. I used Cappello’s fresh gluten-free gnocchi for this dish.

Second step – make sure you have the rest of the ingredients for this amazeballs dish (literally, it’s amazeballs because it has two types of balls in it – gnocchi and chicken sausage meatballs).

Kale and Beef in Chestnut Sauce

February 20th, 2013 by Cheryl Harris, MPH, RD, LD

Wanna hear something funny? When I first started my blog, I intended it to be an even mix of meals, breads, soups, desserts, etc. that mirrored how we eat. When I re-did my recipe index, I realized that notion bit the dust a few years back, and surprise, surprise, it seems like my blog is brought to you by the letter C and the word chocolate. Not that I don’t love chocolate, but I’d kinda like to balance things a little more.  Just cause.

Then again, as I look at my very un-photogenic, super-yumtastic stew, maybe part of my decision is because dessert photographs better? (more…)

Homemade Mexican Chorizo

February 19th, 2013 by Chrissy and Lauren

Cha cha cha chorizo!

Sorry, that sounded like a good idea at the time. Like a chorizo party.

I can’t say that I’ve had Mexican Chorizo often, I just know that when I do have it, it’s quite a tasty treat.

Also, it’s a fun word to say (noted, above). It just sounds so zesty and authentic.

Truth be told, normally I cheat and go for the Soy Chorizo at TJ’s. It tastes the same as chorizo, but without all the pork fat. Since soy isn’t the greatest for our bodies, and you can’t make it mass quantities for a low cost, this recipe is my new option.

I’ve mostly had chorizo with (more…)
