These meatballs are very similar to the filing of a dumpling or wonton without the wrapper. My family really enjoys them. They are gluten-free and dairy-free and can easily be made paleo. I recently brought these Asian chicken meatballs over sesame noodles to a party. It was a big hit! For a paleo version, serve them over zucchini noodles and check the ingredient list; there are a few adjustments. Read More »
Wings are quintessential half-time finger food. No wonder! Wings are economical, easy to make appetizers that everyone enjoys. Find a recipe in this collection of our best wing recipes from About.com Food and Drink Guides.
When a recipe calls for soy sauce, be sure to use a gluten-free product. Same goes for hot sauce. I use Frank’s Red Hot Original sauce in my wing recipes.
I have shared my rice bowls many times in the past, and they are some of my favorite, quick meals. However, the other day, I had a huge sweet potato that needed to be used, but I really wanted a burger. I didn’t want a bun, so I decided to make a burger bowl or deconstructed burger. I made my sweet potato into spicy sweet potato hash browns & then layered in the bowl with some mushrooms that I had sauteed in extra virgin olive oil and white wine.
One of my bestest friends and (oh my gosh we’ve been pals for 10 years) bridesmaids, Carolina, makes some awesome food. We’re old.

I have a treat for you this weekend! Gluten free vegan easy and super creamy tomato basil soup! A classic comfort dish!
Yes, that is right – this recipe is creamy, rich deliciousness that is vegan and doesn’t take forever to make!
It has been exceptionally cold around the Mid West these days, and while this is the time of the year that my heart longs for a warm repose, there is nothing like a warm classic soup to soothe the soul!
Okay, I really didn’t mean to rhyme!
But anyway, I started making this and didn’t know where I was going. Seriously.
All you chefs out there know what I am talking about… Read More »

I remember those extremely busy days for my husband and I back between 2010 and 2011. I mean, don’t get me wrong, we are always busy, but I mean at that time we were just so busy that sometimes we couldn’t fathom the thought of cooking.
Yes, those type days exist, even for gluten free vegans… Read More »
In my pre-coeliac days, canapés were a doddle. Even on a budget. The day before a party I would buy the cheapest bread from the supermarket, cut out as many circles of bread as I could get out of each slice, dip them in olive oil and press them into pattie tins or mini muffin tins and bake. I would end up with hundreds of little crisp toasts that kept overnight in a sealed box ready to be topped with an array of fresh toppings throughout the evening.
These days, that isn’t an option! Gluten free bread is too expensive to buy, too small to get more than 2 circles out of (with a lot of wastage), and frequently too crumbly to use. Home made is better – but that is an awful lot of bread to make, slice and cut. Just not practical – especially when you have no fridge or kitchen space – or time – for advanced prep because you are running a supperclub!
So this week I was left wondering what I could use as canapé bases for our Christmas Party that would be a) gluten free b) economical c) effective and these are my top three suggestions:
To take a load off of your plate for the upcoming Thanksgiving preparation, here is a game plan for a quick and easy side-dish that will absolutely delight the palates of your family and friends.
