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.
Gluten-Free Beef Burgundy Recipe
According to our About.com Guide to French Food beef burgundy, or boeuf Bourguignon, is the ultimate slow-cooked comfort food. It is!
The earthy flavors in this simple dish transform run-of-the-mill beef stew into something truly special to be enjoyed with a warm slice of gluten-free bread and a glass of wine. Read More »
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 »
We actually made this recipe for the first time a couple of weeks ago, but it was late in the day and we lacked the necessary natural light to photograph it. This recipe intrigued us, since pita bread is not easily converted to gluten free, and admittedly, we have yet to make just pita bread using this recipe. Before singling out the pita bread, we wanted to just explore this dough for the pizza itself, and if it turned out to be successful, develop it further for really good gluten free Read More »

We made three different kinds of lunchables as part of a back to school segment and they were a hit. We did not let them go to waste and took them for lunch, just like the kids.
These were delicious, light, and healthy homemade lunchables that included Read More »
It’s been a hot summer these past few days in NY. When the heat is beaming, one of my favorite kinds of meals to enjoy is fish on the grill because it doesn’t leave me feeling heavy.
To me, summer is all about enjoying fresh ingredients. Fruit and veggies are at their prime and I always look forward to the first long island corn on the cob. I think my family would honestly be happy eating watermelon every night for dinner; this being a summer tradition I also love.
Regardless of the season, I truly believe in trying to eat clean. My body is living proof that you are what you eat, and with my active lifestyle I believe Read More »
WHY HAVEN’T I EVER THOUGHT TO DO THIS BEFORE?

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? Read More »
