Mustard-Roasted Whole Cauliflower

After seeing delicious roasted whole cauliflowers all over the internet, I finally decided to try it. This is an amazingly easy, satisfying side dish or vegetarian main. The outside of the cauliflower forms a savory browned crust of tangy mustard and garlic, roasted at high heat. The inside is tender and tasty. I based my […]

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Mongolian Beef

Tried this amazing Mongolian Beef from Paleo Cupboard and wanted to provide a quick overview. It was my first time making a Mongolian Beef recipe and it worked great.

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

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]
