During winter I roast vegetables several nights per week. I learned in my Ayurvedic training during the early 1990′s that it’s important to adapt both cooking and eating to the seasons. Mostly, though, it’s just common sense to eat local root vegetables in the winter (this is one of my favorite carrot recipes) and to run a nice toasty oven on a cold evening.
Roasted vegetables are an amazing dish –affordable, easy to make, and quite healthy. One of the best things about this Roasted Cauliflower, Carrots, and Zucchini is the beautiful mini-rainbow of colors the vegetables in this dish create.
So if you’re looking for a roasted vegetable recipe, take a peak at this one –it’s perfect for the most seasoned of chefs, as well as beginner cooks. Personally, I think this is the best way to cook zucchini and carrots… and cauliflower too!

This Rosemary Lemon Chicken has become my go to dinner dish this summer. In fact, I’ve been making it a couple of times a week and loving it, as has my family –children included. It’s super easy to make, very healthy and fabulously fresh and delicious with hints of garlic, lemon and rosemary complementing the flavor of grilled chicken.

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice

I am loving working with the Almond Board of California to promote healthy eating. Almonds are my favorite superfood –they’re full of protein, low in carbohydrates and packed with nutritious vitamins and minerals.
The Almond Board asked me to create a cracker recipe for them so I have developed these wonderfully flavorful Rosemary Crackers made of almond flour. They are delicious paired with olive tapenade or any soft spreadable cheese for a cocktail party. ... read more →

I’ve been slightly obsessed with rosemary lately. I put it in everything and just can’t seem to get enough of this delicious herb. My latest rosemary victim? Gluten free Lemon Rosemary Mini Muffins made with coconut flour.
I find that rosemary almost has a buttery flavor. It’s also power packed with nutrients including iron and calcium. These gluten free muffins are more of an adult treat than something for children. I’ve been in the mood lately for tasty snacking and dessert ... read more →

This is the bread recipe that changed my life –well, at least temporarily, in a small way. As you will see from the bruschetta below and more recipes in the days to come, I have turned this focaccia bread base into several other interesting types of baked goods.
First, however, I do need to disclose that this focaccia recipe is really not my own. It is Laura Dolson’s and was pointed out to me by someone in the low carb group ... read more →

I was reading our local paper yesterday and saw an article on Rosemary Fig Crackers (glutenoid of course) and decided I had to make my own gluten-free version (or g-free, if you prefer).
These gluten free crackers are super easy to make and delicious as well. My husband gave me the thumbs up on them.
Rosemary Fig Crackers
1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 teaspoon rosemary, minced
3-4 dried figs, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil

Rich and decadent Rosemary Chocolate Truffles rolled in cocoa powder.
Last night was the conclusion of a “grand” Memorial Day weekend. My parents came in and took the boys down to the Boulder Creek Fest where they all had a blast. There was much spoiling –meals out, bowling, batting practice at the amusement park and overall non-stop fun. A perfect weekend with the grandparents.
After an exhausting weekend of keeping up with my seventy year old folks, I ... read more →

Every Friday night, I roast a chicken. My children are willing to consume any chicken dish as long as it contains fruit. Such is our unspoken agreement.
This past week, I used apples to lure my children to their protein dish. The combination of rosemary with apples was a natural pairing and the balsamic vinegar, which caramelized during roasting, sweetly permeated the entire chicken.
As I served this up to my family and asked how they liked it, my younger son ... read more →
