With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching, I have been itching to find ways to eat the leftover turkey. I know this may seem odd,as there is no leftover turkey yet, but I am anticipating leftovers, as we have never not had them. I wanted to get creative this year and mix things up. Yeah, turkey soup and mashed potato bowls are great, but I wanted to create a unique turkey sandwich. I didn’t want anything complicated, just a different way to enjoy the Read More »

If you read my blog back in January, you will remember that my roommate and I heavily relied on our crock pot. It was the lifesaver, to our busy days, and long nights. As the cold crisp air is slowly creeps into the northeast, I want more and more crock pot meals.
Considering that I don’t eat red meat I have had to get creative in finding recipes, as it seems as though there are always pork, and beef recipes for the crock pot. However, with the little extra time on my hands I don’t mind Read More »
Tacos! Drive thru beef and chicken, crunchy or soft may be our most familiar tacos – staples of a fast food diet. But if you’ve never had a fish taco, I content that you’ve never enjoyed the best taco of all. From South America, across Arizona and up to Alaska, fish tacos are routinely on restaurant menus, even at airports and most home cooks have their very own favorite versions.
Fish tacos, in all their regional variations are a culinary sensation.One you shouldn’t miss out on just because you don’t frequent these locales. They are incredibly easy to make at home.
Gluten-free tortillas are easy to find in local groceries. This makes constructing a perfectly delicious gluten-free fish taco pretty darned easy in under 30 minutes. The best fish tacos I have eaten are made with Alaskan halibut or mahi-mahi. Spicy coleslaw and fusion mayonnaise (spicy, often citrus flavored mayo) are the icing on the cake, when it comes to dressing up a fish taco.
Here’s a recipe for my version of gluten-free fish tacos, just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Add a side of homemade guacamole and pico de gallo and be prepared to enjoy. Viva tacos de Read More »

Fall is here and that means pumpkins are starting to appear on your neighbor’s door step and in grocery stores, which is the universal signal to start carving and cooking pumpkin. Why is it most of us tend to cook with pumpkin only around Halloween and Thanksgiving? Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A, fiber and it is low in calories, so we should find ways to work it into our diet throughout the year.
Pumpkin is very versatile to cook with, so it can be used in both sweet and savory recipes. This Examiner did a little research for gluten-free pumpkin recipes and was amazed at all of the drool-worthy recipes we found. Listed below are just a fraction of the gluten-free pumpkin recipes available online.

I saw an advertisement on TV for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with this recipe. Whilst it sounded, let’s say interesting, I was intrigued and had to try it.
The first time I tried this recipe I bought some gluten free rice crumbs but I found them too crunchy with an almost sand type texture. The next time I cooked this recipe I therefore made my own breadcrumbs by blending a piece of frozen gluten free bread. It turned out really well, the chicken was very tender and it tasted awesome served with cornmeal mash (cornmeal mixed with milk and cheese) and stir fried vegetables.

I have a short New Year’s Resolution list. It’s much the same list that I wrote down last year and the year before. It involves cooking and eating more nutritious foods.
Homemade soups are the most nourishing food I can think of. Enough protein, enough fats of the right sort, lots of vegetables in healthy stocks and broths, rich in nutrients. That’s what soups and stews are made of.
Therefore, my number one New Year’s resolution is to make one big pot of homemade soup or stew each and every week of the new year. Last year I lost focus and fell short of my weekly soup/stew goal, but this first week of the new year, I’m at 100%, starting with a simple gluten-free version of “Beef Burgundy.”
On Christmas Day my son served an amazing Beef Bourguignon for the family. The flavors were rich and earthy. As I listened to him describe his list of ingredients and method of preparation I decided to start the year with an abbreviated, easier version of the classic French Beef Bourguignon recipe, beef burgundy. Here is my first gluten-free stew of the new year.

Now that I am recently self-employed I have been spending my first week of freedom melting in my house. I was tempted to go to Barre class twice in one day because it was a nicely air conditioned environment. I would have really regretted that one. I can only do so much shaking and pulsing…
I have been trying out a few new meatless options for my vegan/vegetarian clients and honestly, it hasn’t been as tough as I had thought it would be! These meatless quinoa meatballs are quite a tasty alternative to the original meatball. They are just as filling, hold together well, and have great texture. I bet even the biggest meat lovers would swoon for these meatless ones. Read More »
