As we’ve discussed, everything is better in mini form.
Except portions of gourmet mac n cheese. Always take the big dish of that stuff. It’s not everyday that you will come across a heaping portion of creamy, cheesy, black truffle-y, mac n cheese.

Here is a really great smoothie that my kids and their friends made with our leftover fruit from a fruit salad. They loved it and so did I! (more…)

Turnips–definitely not a vegetable I grew up munching on. They are never featured on veggie platters, and definitely do not have shelf space at my local Trader Joe’s. I would be so curious to know if anybody ate turnips, on the regular!?
When Jacque brought me a bag full of fresh dill from her garden, she also threw in some turnips…. (more…)

Gluten-Free Peach Blueberry Tart takes advantage of two fantastic seasonal fruits, all wrapped into one delicious gluten-free tart shell. Add a scoop of fresh vanilla ice cream to a slice of Gluten-Free Peach Blueberry Tart for a real summer treat.
If you’d rather make this as a pie no problem- substitute a 9-inch pie plate for the tart pan.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes

I really wanted to try my hand at making homemade ice cream so I asked my stepmummy if I could borrow her ice cream maker…thankfully she said yes! Keeping Bryan in mind (even though he was gone all summer) I thought I would try making some coconut milk ice cream, I figured I should (more…)

Yes, I hit the trifecta on this recipe. I was able to successfully make a pancake without gluten, dairy (in essence, casein) and eggs! It is a vegan, gluten-free pancake.

Substituting the milk is easy. There are many milk substitutes like soy, rice, coconut, hemp, and almond. If you use something sweetened, cut back on the sugar in the recipe. Instead of butter, you can use (more…)

I love bringing along homemade muffins with me on hotel vacations. They’re fantastic for snack or breakfast, can be filled with protein and healthy fats (which I always seem to lack when I travel), and even if they get squished during my trip, they still taste (more…)
