Beef Brisket

Posted on February 16, 2014

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 →

Mushroom Masters: Herb Stuffed Mushrooms

Posted on September 26, 2011

I was recently invited to develop an appetizer recipe for the Mushroom Masters, a global competition that helps celebrate National Mushroom Month (September). Since I love mushrooms, and they are so easy to prepare gluten free and Paleo, I jumped at the chance to participate.

For the competition, I created the recipe for these Herb Stuffed Mushrooms –they make a lovely gluten free appetizer for a cocktail party or nice nosh for a gluten free brunch. While this convenient finger food looks ... read more →

I’m thrilled to be a part of Pacific Natural Foods’ Everyday Chef Challenge!  For the first round of the competition, $5 Dinners, Aggie’s Kitchen, Herbivoracious, A Savory Nest and I will be using a “secret” ingredient along with one of Pacific Natural Foods’ broth products *.

The secret ingredient for this round?  Mushrooms.  I used shiitake, though any type will work for the recipe below.  And I have chosen to use their Organic Vegetable Broth.

Rosh Hashanah Recipes

Posted on September 17, 2009

Rosh Hashanah is tomorrow at sundown and although I’m a tad behind in my planning, we are getting ready.  Thus far, I have put together the below menu.  I’ve been perusing Claudia Roden’s The Book of Jewish Food for additional ideas, as she is one of my favorite cookbook authors.  Of all time.

Although I will not be making the challah that is listed below, I thought others might enjoy using this recipe for the holiday.  I think the recipe ... read more →

Raw Kale Shiitake Salad

Posted on June 30, 2009

The other night I went to a fabulous event in Boulder hosted by Bauman College. During this evening one of the graduates from Bauman’s chef program did a great cooking demo for a raw kale salad with shiitake mushrooms (it had a number of other ingredients as well).

The next day, I was determined to make my a version of my own. Before that evening, I had not thought of eating raw mushrooms, however, after tasting the Bauman salad, ... read more →

Salmon with Mushrooms and Red Pepper Sauce

Posted on December 9, 2008

Mushrooms are one of my favorite foods.  I bought some recently on a trip to the store, though I had no idea what would become of them.

The next day I took out one of my favorite cookbooks, A Cook’s Book of Mushrooms and began to flip through the pages.  I found a great recipe, made a few changes (replacing sugar with stevia, etc.) and whipped it up for dinner.  Although it looks complicated and has a few steps, this recipe ... read more →

Chili Chicken

Posted on March 25, 2008

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 →

Stuffed Mushrooms

Posted on March 11, 2008

Gluten-Free Girl recently announced she is with child.

Out here in Colorado, I have big news as well. Our pet house-bunny was neutered today. After humping every stuffed animal and slipper in the house, we took him to the vet only to discover that contrary to what the Humane Society had told us when we adopted him from their shelter, all of his reproductive capacities were fully intact.

Now, I know this is not the usual subject matter around here and it ... read more →

Yellow Split Pea Soup with Smoked Paprika

Posted on March 8, 2008

When my husband takes the boys up to the mountains for a night or two, first I call Martha for a hike. Then, I go into soup mode.

For me, soup is all about simplicity –vegetables and protein in a one pot meal. I make soup for dinner and often end up eating it for breakfast and lunch the next day. My husband cringes when I tell him this; he has a strong dislike of leftovers, and has not yet discovered ... read more →
