This recipe is based on one by Ellyn Goodrich at epicurious.com, called “Alaskan Halibut and Salmon Gefilte Fish Terrine.” While Goodrich’s recipe makes a gefilte fish “loaf,” mine is for traditional (yet gluten free) gefilte fish balls (like my Bubby made) only with more vegetables, so that they are a bit lighter and healthier than the standard gefilte-fare.
What are gefilte fish? Here is Wikipedia’s definition:
“Yiddish Gefüllte Fisch (Gefilte fish;from German gefüllte “stuffed” fish) (Yiddish: געפֿילטע פֿיש, Hebrew: דגים ממולאים dagim ... read more →

This recipe for quick and easy grilled salmon is based on Kalyn’s Grilled Salmon with Maple Syrup Glaze from Kalyn’s Kitchen. I find that her site is a fantastic source overall, and particularly for protein filled entrees. I had the pleasure of being on a panel at Blogher last year with Kalyn, and am looking forward to seeing her again this year. The Blogher Food Conference is less than 2 months away.

Kumquats are in season right now. What’s a kumquat you ask? Essentially it’s a citrus fruit that closely resembles an orange, though it is much smaller. If you want to know more about kumquats there is a great article over at the Cooking Light website.
Meanwhile, here’s a cozy holiday recipe for gluten free Kumquat Garlic Chicken. We’re having this tonight for the first night of Hanukkah, along with Squash Latkes and gluten free Matzo Ball Soup, of course.

There was a shortage of Fish Kabayaki the other night when I made this amazing dish from Jaden’s Steamy Kitchen Cookbook. I used salmon to make this sweet and tangy fish dish and it was phenomenal.
The boys were unhappy that I did not make more, so tonight I’m making it again and doubling the recipe to 2 pounds of salmon so all can eat to their fill and still have some for leftovers the next night. I’m making it right ... read more →

My younger son is a big fan of my Chipotle Orange Chicken and asks me to make it on a weekly basis. Since it’s perfect grilling weather, I decided to make a version of this recipe with chicken breasts that could easily be thrown on the grill –just in time for when they arrive home from baseball practice.
Yes, we’re back in baseball season, this time it’s fall ball.
I like to serve this tangy, gluten free chicken dish with grilled broccoli. ... read more →

This Pad Thai is one of my family’s favorite dishes. Add a heap of grilled chicken or sea food and you have a delicious high protein meal.
I purchase my noodles at the Asian market in town and haven’t seen them online. If you are looking for noodles, you’ll need to check out the Asian markets in your neck of the woods. If anyone knows of a good source for mung bean noodles that would be accessible to everyone (think Whole ... read more →

Are you spending too much time on the computer? That’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. After reading this article in The Atlantic and finding out about this new site that calculates the amount of time spent on twitter, I’ve really been pondering this matter.
I haven’t been pondering it too much though. Instead, last weekend, I took a break and left my computer off for 48 hours. Wow, I did have quite a surprise on Monday morning, ... read more →

The other night while I was tucking in my super snuggly 10 year old into bed, we discussed possibilities for the next night’s dinner.
“Fennel” he suggested, “I really like it because it’s sweet and also very healthy!”
“What would you like for our protein dish?” I asked. “What about that roasted chicken I made the other night that you guys gobbled up?”
“No, something else, something sweet and sour,” he replied.
“Ok,” I said. “What about agave lime chicken?”
“Yum! That sounds great.” my ... read more →

As some of you know, I write an op-ed column for The Daily Camera, covering political, economic and environmental issues. As we face increasing food prices and shortages worldwide, food becomes a more important aspect of such aforementioned matters.
This week, my column was called, The Politics of High Fructose Corn Syrup. In it, I discussed our government’s gigantic corn subsidy and our country’s growing waistlines. When I awoke this morning, my husband asked if I had received ... read more →

I have discovered a great new website, myfeasts.com. I found it through tastespotting.com, my all time favorite site. If you ever find yourself in a “dinner quandary,” I highly recommend a visit to tastespotting; the photos are gorgeous and provide much meal planning inspiration!
Alas, I digress, this post is about myfeasts.blogspot.com. The site is a bit of a mystery, as I could not find an “about” page. Was I just missing it? Or is ... read more →

After preparing a plethora of Valentine’s sweets, I once again have post-holiday “dessert burnout” syndrome. Thus, I now find myself constantly craving protein –for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks.
I will be eating a lot of these tasty little seafood patties in this new phase of protein craze. Hence I am delighted to share one of my favorite recipes with you –this one for simple, savory shrimp cakes.

I find nothing as yawn-inspiring as a food blogger who “yums” at their own creations. I see it on blogs all the time. “‘Yum, yum and yum,’ and did I say, ‘yum?!’” I can hear them now, oohing and ahhing at their own creations. However, I may soon become part of this silly little navel gazing taste-bud gazing club.
Tonight I made sesame noodles. That old dish from the Chinese restaurants in New York. I didn’t think I’d be eating sesame ... read more →

You missed the Orange Ginger Chicken…
This Paleo/primal-friendly Orange Ginger Chicken recipe is a great way to roast an entire chicken. The recipe is also child friendly –Orange Ginger Chicken is my younger son’s all time favorite dinner recipe.
My husband called and said he had to work late tonight. However, the boys and I were much too hungry to wait. So, before we ate, I snapped a photo of dinner and emailed it to him. I kept a plate ... read more →
