Chicken Soup

Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

This hearty, gluten-free and dairy-free meal is about as easy as it gets. Made some tweaks to this Betty Crocker recipe: Slow-Cooker Hearty Chicken and Noodle Soup. As adapted, here’s what it looks like: 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into rounds 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1″ dice 1 teaspoon […]

Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

This is the second recipe I’ve tried for Blueberry Baked Oatmeal. There was nothing wrong with the first one, but this one was amazing: Blueberry Baked Oatmeal. The recipe gives you options and I went with the one that was both gluten-free and dairy-free. Great recipe. You get crispy edges, tender middle, not TOO sweet, […]

Pesto Containers

Fresh Basil Pesto

This is an adaptation of a Barefoot Contessa recipe — she is just the best. Here’s the original recipe: Ina Garten’s Easy Basic Pesto. My changes were to use hard goat cheese (Cablanca) in lieu of parmesan and to use all walnuts, no pine nuts. You would think there would be pine nuts when you […]

Green Chile Chicken

Slow Cooker Green Chile Chicken

This is a quick meal to prepare in a slow-cooker, great over rice or in tortillas. I sprinkled a little goat feta on top, but on its own it is both dairy-free and gluten-free. The recipe is below. There’s a lot of wiggle room on ingredients and quantity if you have preferences of what you want […]

Hummus in food processor

Homemade Hummus

I modified this recipe from the back of the tahini container. Seriously some of the best hummus I’ve had. Tahini (pureed toasted sesame seeds) makes it extra nutty and creamy, and lemon and lime juice give it a summery freshness. Well worth it to make a batch fresh, and it only takes a few minutes. […]

Berry Hand Pies

Berry Hand Pies

The original recipe for these uses a star-shaped cookie cutter to make star pies for the 4th of July: 4th of July Star Shaped Berry Hand Pies. I didn’t have a big enough star cookie cutter so went with round. Less exciting but still tasty. The crust is easy to make and is pretty close to […]

Peach Crisp

Peach Crisp

Nothing better than ripe, fresh peaches in season. Some of the ones in this recipe came right off the tree in my parents’ backyard. This fast, easy recipe is perfect for making a simple, very homemade tasting dessert on a summer night: Paleo Peach Crisp. It is dairy-free and gluten-free. I made a couple changes […]

Mayo Bowl

Avocado Lemon Mayo

I found this super fast and easy recipe here: Healthy Avocado Mayo. I followed the recipe exactly, except to use regular olive oil instead of light. This is an amazing dipping sauce for Zucchini and Summer Squash Fritters.
