Sunflower Seed and Kale Pesto

Sunflower Seed and Kale Pesto

I ate a lot this weekend. Way too much actually…in a good way.

For my Dad’s birthday dinner, my mom and I made Ina Garten’s God-sent Truffled Macaroni & Cheese. Despite the loan she had to take out to buy the truffle butter and exotic mushrooms, it was by far the best mac n’ cheese ever.

Let’s just say, it’s going to be rough getting used to plain ‘ol mac n’ cheese after that eye opening experience.

Now, I’m not advocating going into debt over truffle butter, but if anything is worth over spending, this recipe is it.

We also had some extremely gourmet rib eye. Coated with McCormicks grill seasoning, seared on the charcoal barbeque, and finished off with (more…)

Gluten-Free Mini Caprese Frittatas Recipe

Turnip and Potato Hash Browns

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…)

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…)

Gluten-Free Morning Glory Muffins

The original Morning Glory muffin recipe is said to have originated on Nantucket Island, the creation of Chef Pam McKinstry. I can't think of a better gluten-free breakfast and snack muffin than Morning Glory muffins with well over a quart of healthy fruits, carrots and nuts added. And these fragrant cinnamon spiced muffins are gluten and dairy free.

This recipe is a gluten-free adaptation of "The Original Morning Glory Muffins" which appears in The Earthbound Farm Organics Cookbook - Food to Live By by Myra Goodman with Linda Holland and Pamela McKinstry.

While there are a plethora of places to dine out gluten-free in the Columbus area, there is nothing like the convenience of being able to stay home and prepare your own meal. When I found that I could buy the San-J Thai peanut sauce in local stores, I began to use it in many dishes. One of my favorite dishes to date is this very easy Thai Peanut Chicken and Noodles.
