My boys and I are very into salads right now. And It’s my job to change it up with different and fun salad dressings to keep them interested. The scrumptious salad above is 100% from my garden. It includes a variety of lettuces, dino kale, tomatoes and cucumbers. I love sending the boys out to […]

Finally, a gluten free cracker that is egg free as well! Who do I have to thank for this tasty cracker? Mark Sisson of Mark’s Daily Apple and author of The Primal Blueprint and The Primal Blueprint Cookbook. I am a huge fan of Mark and his work.

This gluten free, dairy free and vegan Chocolate Sorbet recipe is an oldie but goodie from my recipe archives. What are these archives of which I speak? A binder with more than a thousand of my unpublished recipes. Anyway, this frozen treat is one of my mother-in-law’s favorite gluten free desserts, and she asks me to […]

We’re back in town after an amazing vacation and I just can’t get enough grilled veggies. These grilled portabella mushrooms are my husband’s favorite. I’ve been grilling everything though –zucchini, broccoli and lots of chicken. I’ll be posting a recipe for grilled broccoli before summer’s end. My grill is getting a really good workout these days! Grilled Portabella […]

This recipe for Grilled Zucchini is one of my favorites for several reasons. First, it’s a good way to use up the prolific zucchini of August. Second, it’s mighty easy to make. And third, it’s delicious. Let’s not forget reason number four though –zucchini and summer squash are a healthy side dish for any meal. […]

These healthy Chardonnay Crackers have a deep, rich and buttery flavor. They’re great for everyday snacking or as an hors d’œuvre. I like that they’re high in protein and have good fats (due to the ) and full of antioxidants (in the Grape Seed Flour). They’re a wonderful recovery snack as well after a good […]

I confess, I have an addiction to broccoli rabe. I love the bitter flavor of this delicious green vegetable. I have always believed that bitter is such an important, yet under rated flavor in our culture. I think a lot of people drink coffee for the bitter flavor that we all need so badly. My […]

This new and improved gluten free Peach Crisp was a lot of fun to shoot and even more fun to eat. I’m loving (rather than dreading) taking pictures ever since I took the Food and Light Photography Workshop. Why another Peach Crisp? Well, a number of you had left comments on my “old” Peach Crisp […]

I took the picture for this tasty apricot salad dressing after my first day at the Food and Light Photography Workshop that I attended here in Boulder, Colorado.

This super healthy Asparagus Basil Salad is a not just nutritious, it’s a treat for the palate. Trust me, it’s delectable, especially right now using wonderfully ripe vegetables at peak season.

My children loved this gluten free Cherry Blueberry Crumble made from fresh ripe fruit. As you can see, they placed a huge dollop of Whipped Cream on top.

A while back, I posted a recipe for Cabernet Cookies, using Cabernet Grape Seed Flour from AprèsVin. I thought they turned out very well –not too sweet, full of antioxidants and rich, dark chocolate; basically, my family was hooked. Recently, I was reviewing the comments for that post and saw this one that Jenné from […]

I am on a coleslaw roll. In fact, my children are so tired of coleslaw that they have begged me to stop making it; I made coleslaw with dinner every night last week and just can’t get enough crunchy cabbage. One afternoon last week, I put out a query on Twitter (my favorite e-venue to […]
