Apple Sage Stuffing

  This recipe is derived from my mom’s wonderfully delicious stuffing recipe. It’s pretty close to hers except I added apples and the celery/onion ratio is a little different. Any stuffing I make is a tribute to my mom. I love her, she’s awesome, and growing up I was On bangs week nice body. Magnesium […]

Jerk Seasoned Sweet Potatoes

I love sweet potatoes! I love them simply baked served with butter, I loved them mashed, I love them sliced, and in any other form you can think of. My husband, on the other hand, doesn’t. He doesn’t mind them, but usually doesn’t go out of his way to eat them. This recipe somehow did it […]

Simple Sloppy Joes

My kids love to eat these (which is always nice) but it’s definitely filling and flavorful enough for us adults too! We also like to mix it up and serve these not only on buns, but on hearty whole wheat bread, pita pockets, or even a flat bread. It makes for a more sophisticated twist […]

Winter Beef Stew

I made this stew this week and I was definitely satisfied. I was excited to eat it despite that I was expecting my husband would most likely say “it’s ok” and only eat one bowl (he’s doesn’t usually go for things that have broth involved as a main ingredient). We ate a serving and he […]

The recipe I chose was posted by my friend Michelle on her blog The Funny Tummy Cafe. Michelle has a similar Celiac story to me […]

Sweet and Hot Sausage Sandwich

My husband and I like to create sandwiches and see if we can impress each other. When I asked him if he thought they were good (we weren’t able to eat together the night I made these) he said, “Yeah, I had two!” So I guess it passed the test. I impressed myself as well […]

Comfort Food Can Be Healthy

When I think about comfort foods I think of noodles and cheese. Two things that my body doesn’t agree with on a regular basis, not to mention the fact that I wouldn’t consider a consistent diet of noodles and cheese to be particularly healthy. Therefore, I find myself in a dilemma. It’s freezing outside, I want […]

Rice Pudding

Every Christmas growing up my mom made rice pudding. To be honest, as a kid I didn’t really like it. I would eat it every year though in honor of the tradition. When I eat it now, however, I wonder how I never liked it!!! It’s the most delicious, wonderful, creamy dish ever.

Black Beans You’ll Want To Eat

I really do like black beans. I usually just buy a can, and they are always a great addition to many of my meals. I just haven’t ever thought of beans being rich and flavorful…until recently. I made the most beautiful and delicious bean discovery. Delicious to the point that my 6 year old has […]

Butternut Squash Delight

If you haven’t caught on by now, I’ve got a lot of butternut squash around my house at the moment. I even found more in the trunk of my car that I hadn’t unloaded yet! Good thing it hasn’t been so hot that it got roasted or moldy! For this side dish I did the […]
