This basic meatball recipe is easy to make. No frying! Flavored with shallot, tomato paste and a hint of Dijon mustard, these simple meatballs are incredibly tasty. My boys and their friends love them!
Meatballs are also a great make ahead dinner dish. Often, when I have a busy day, I’ll make these meatballs the night before, let them cool, and refrigerate them. The next evening, I throw them in a baking dish with a glass lid, cover them with ... read more →

Meringues are a light and crunchy naturally gluten-free dessert that melt in your mouth. Better yet? Mine are made with only two ingredients –egg whites and maple syrup.
Meringue cookies are fun, yet elegant, pleasing both young and old; my children and their friends devour them. So does my husband. We’ll be serving my quick and easy Meringues at our Passover Seder, along with my egg-free Macaroons, in order to give everyone with food restrictions loads of options.
If you’re not Jewish, ... read more →

I first made this Spicy Chicken with Grilled Lime recipe for a Sunday night dinner when my in-laws were visiting. They were delighted by this easy chicken recipe and impressed with how quickly I was able to throw it together after we arrived home with them from a weekend in the mountains. The best thing about grilled chicken? The grill! As in no messy pans or baking dishes to clean up.

Beef Brisket served with Mashed Cauliflower is easy to make and a favorite Paleo dinner in our family.
Growing up I loved the brisket that my Bubby made. It was melt in your mouth amazing. My mother also made an incredible brisket. Now it’s my turn to take a whirl at Beef Brisket –the perfect Paleo dinner entree.
Since I started eating red meat religiously a couple of years ago (rather than every now and then) I have watched my iron levels ... read more →

Curry is a blend of spices –these Curried Almonds are packed with spices that contain highly nutritious compounds.
According to Wikipedia, curry is a generic term used in Western culture that refers to a wide variety of dishes whose origins are from India and other East Asian countries. In traditional cuisines, the precise spice blend of a curry can be determined by everything from regional preferences to family customs. The spices in curries can be both whole and ground.
Wikipedia also states ... read more →

This high-protein chicken dinner (full of cauliflower and olives) is a wonderful Paleo one pot meal.
This hearty, grain-free, savory Paleo dinner dish is a hit with adults and teens alike in our house. I often serve it with a Spinach Salad for a filling, vegetable heavy dinner.
While we eat chicken once or twice per week, I also try to serve the boys (all 3 of them) steak each week as that is their favorite dinner. They are more than happy when ... read more →

Gluten free, grain free raspberry streusel bars, made with high protein almond flour, lightly sweetened with xylitol.
This recipe for vegan raspberry streusel bars is based on one by Brittany at Real Sustenance. Ever since she posted her delicious looking recipe last year during the holidays I’ve been wanting to make it.
I adjusted her recipe by removing the sweetener from the crust and by increasing the amount of high protein items in the streusel so the topping would be a bit ... read more →

Serve tangy Mustard Lime Chicken for dinner with a side of asparagus, or any other healthy green vegetable.
I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes for chicken breast, so I was mighty happy when a reader left this comment on my post for grilled Mustard Lime Chicken:
Fantastic chicken! Our son was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease about one month ago, and I have to tell you that your recipes have been such a help. We all loved the ... read more →

Shepherd’s Pie is a traditional English dish. In Britain it is generally made with lamb or mutton; in this recipe I have made a simple ground beef shepherd’s pie and added bacon for extra flavor.
Shepard’s pie is often referred to as “cottage pie,” by the English; it is a casserole made of cooked meat and vegetables that is then topped with mashed potatoes and baked. I have made this dish into a Paleo casserole by using Mashed Cauliflower for the ... read more →

Dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate, all in one gluten free chocolate chip cookie.
I can assure you, this is not a Paleo cookie. It is not even a Primal cookie. It is a special occasion cookie –a wonderful treat to serve at a gluten free Super Bowl party. It also makes a great holiday cookie (think gluten free Valentine’s Day dessert). Lately, everyone who has been over to our house –gluten free or not –has been gorging themselves on ... read more →

Gluten free tart crust, made with only four ingredients; the perfect base for a variety of fillings.
I love making gluten free crusts with almond flour. This gluten free flour is super easy to use, high in heart healthy protein and fats, and of course delicious.
If you wish to experiment and try to make a gluten free pie crust out of this tart crust, feel free. Just be sure to stop back by and let us know how it works.
I am ... read more →

These gluten free Goji Power Bars were a hit at the gym the other day.
My fellow gym rats were delighted when I brought these Paleo friendly, high protein, gluten free snacks to the gym last week. The consensus? These gluten free power bars hit the spot.
Made with healthy, high protein almond flour and nutritious goji berries, the gang wolfed these down, then asked for more. I promised them I would post this recipe for gluten free power bars and so ... read more →

This dairy free peanut butter protein shake is a great way to start the day. I like to drink it before I go to the gym –the protein (about 50 grams) gives me energy during my entire workout, and then some.
I’ve been on a major peanut butter kick lately, in fact, this is my third gluten free peanut butter recipe in the last week or so. Earlier, I posted my Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies, after that I posted ... read more →

I was working my way through the Cook’s Illustrated website the other night and came across an amazing recipe for Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies. As soon as I laid eyes on that recipe I knew I had to create a high protein, gluten free version. While my husband enjoys all of my gluten free chocolate recipes, this is his fave. He even left a special love note on the fridge for me late last night after sampling them.
Of course this ... read more →

These high protein Sesame Salmon Burgers pair nicely with Garlic Ginger Bok Choy (pictured in background of photo above; stay tuned for recipe next week).
I really like making these quick and easy gluten free burgers because they not only consist of highly nutritious wild salmon (obviously), they’re also packed with superfoods such as garlic, ginger and sesame seeds. Sometimes I like to prepare the salmon mixture ahead of time (think the night before, so that the flavors can meld into ... read more →

I met Silvana last year at Blogher Food and felt an instant connection with her. She is magnetic in a smart, sophisticated, New York kinda way, and I was more than happy to spend a full day at the conference sitting with her for every session and sharing breaks together chatting.
During the day, our stories unfolded, and we learned that in terms of our children, we have much in common. Silvana, the former editor-in-chief at Rachael Ray Everyday, began cooking ... read more →

I’m kinda obsessed with these deviled eggs, and given that Easter is near, what could be more appropriate? They’re easy to make, full of protein and naturally gluten free to boot. My boys love to chow down on them after school and I like to snack on them all day long. Deviled Eggs are perfectly simple and elegant for a party, and make a great casual everyday type gluten free snack as well.
When I make these, I like to double the recipe below, ... read more →

I have been a huge fan of Michael Ruhlman’s book Ratio for quite some time. His work really came to life for me when I saw him speak at Blogher Food last year. He conveys his love of good food in a passionate manner, which I find compelling.So, when my friend Silvana invited me to participate in this month’s Ratio Rally, I said yes, even though I have not really baked using ratios and scales. I am definitely a numbers ... read more →

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: ???????? ????, Hebrew: ???? ???????? dagim ... read more →

My version of Perfect Roast Chicken is based upon one from Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. This go to dish is something I make at least once a week, after which I generally use the carcass for chicken stock. My best friend from childhood, Helen, introduced me to Ina, and I have been hooked on her books ever since.
While Ina’s recipe for Perfect Roast Chicken calls for wheat flour, chicken stock and butter, mine is a tad simpler and gluten ... read more →
