Recipe Update: Thai Chile Salmon

When I first shared my love of Thai Chile Salmon, I paired it with roasted potatoes and okra.  Recently I have been eating a lot of quinoa in an effort to eat more nutrient dense foods.  Low iron stores on my last blood work means more bison (higher in iron than beef), spinach and other [...]

Recipe: Chicken, Walnut & Raisin Salad with Pomegranate Dressing

Last week I shared one of my recent favorite dinner salads – Simple Steak Salad.  This week I want to share another simple salad using a store-bought rotisserie chicken.  Eating healthy doesn’t have to be time consuming or complicated.  By using a store-bought rotisserie chicken (remember to check the gluten-free status), the time it takes [...]

Snow Cookie Day

Snow.  The weather forecast yesterday was sucky all around.  High winds along with freezing rain and sleet were the sounds I woke up to as they cruelly knocked at my bedroom window.  I had planned on running 5 miles before the storm hit, but that plan was scrapped when I took the puppy out and [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–December 3, 2012

Hello, December!  At least the calendar says it is December, but the temperature sure doesn’t!  Today the temperature got into the mid-60’s!  It sure is odd to walk out of the house in Columbus, Ohio on December 3rd and not need a coat.  The morning greeted us with some dense fog – dense enough to [...]

The fruit dip is one that my sister first introduced me [...]

The Little Things–Inside-Out Thin Mints

Do you ever find yourself trying to find out what will make you truly happy?  What is happy?  Don’t worry, this post isn’t going to delve deep into what makes a person happy.  Rather, it is the small things that can add up to make you happy.  One of those small things happens to be [...]

Recipe: Pumpkin Shrimp Pasta

A short time ago I had the pleasure of reviewing a pumpkin pasta sauce.  I love all things pumpkin and this sauce is no different! Since my first taste, I have been dreaming up new ways to use this pasta and my latest creation is paired with shrimp.

Thanksgiving Chat: Stuffing/Dressing

One of the first things I worried about when I started the gluten-free diet was my beloved Thanksgiving Day stuffing. Some people call it dressing, whatever, I call it delicious! I have tried many different bread options for the dish – gluten-free bread, gluten-free cornbread and most recently Canyon Bakehouse gluten-free bread.

Recipe: Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

I wanted to make sure that I shared the very easy recipe for the Wordless Wednesday post that went up yesterday.  Sometimes I get busy and forget I shared a yummy looking picture – I promise I don’t mean to leave you hanging on purpose.  This meal was one of the easiest to make and [...]
