Recipe Collection: Chicken Broccoli Pasta Alfredo

By | January 30, 2014

Since I first discovered this some 15 years ago, it’s been one of my favorites.  Of course, it used to be something I’d order in a restaurant, or make using a jar of Alfredo sauce and white pasta.  But no more. This is a real food, from-scratch version.  What’s more, this is one of my Read More

Recipe Collection: Grain-Free Chocolate Walnut Cheesecake Brownies

By | October 31, 2013

Who doesn’t need a little dessert…now and then? I try not to make desserts (in fact, right now, I’m supposed to be eating no sugar at all.  I’ve been mostly good).  When I do, I often try to go for grain-free options, because I feel like they’re healthier if they’re focused around ingredients that are not Read More

Recipe Collection: Sprouted Tortillas with Chia Seeds

By | October 10, 2013

One night, I just needed some soft tacos.  You know how that is?  You’re craving it and you just have to have it. I scoured the options at Trader Joe’s, looking for some reasonably healthy tortillas.  There were none I wanted to buy.  They either contained corn and soy, or they were made of white flour.

Recipe Collection: Taco Potatoes

By | October 3, 2013

When I was on the trip with the wonderful people over at Redmond Clay/Real Salt, they had some seriously delicious food.  A couple of the dishes involved layering potatoes with meat, veggies, cheese, and spices and these were especially yummy.  I used these ideas as a jumping off point to create my own meat-and-potatoes layered Read More

Recipe Collection: Fruit Leather

By | September 19, 2013

The summer’s bounty is overflowing right now.  This is the best time of year!  The summer goodies are still pouring out of gardens — peaches, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, peppers, etc. — yet the fall goodies are beginning to come as well (pears, apples, grapes, potatoes, garlic).  It’s just a wonderful time of year for fresh Read More

Recipe Collection: Mint Extract

By | August 1, 2013

Mint is yummy.  I like to combine it with chocolate in desserts, add it to ice cream, and so on.  A few drops of this could be added to tea or water for an upset tummy, too!  The extract is a simple and delicious way to preserve that minty goodness. Ingredients: 1 1/2 c. fresh Read More

Recipe Collection: Carrot Cake Waffles

By | July 18, 2013

There was one evening I couldn’t decide between waffles (which I love) or carrot muffins for breakfast the next day.  Then I thought…I’ll make carrot cake waffles, the best of both worlds!  When I mentioned this on Facebook, over 100 other people thought that was a good idea and some requested to see the recipe.

Recipe Collection: Barbecue Sauce

By | July 11, 2013

I love barbecue sauce.  And it’s barbecue season, no? I haven’t yet found a “perfect” recipe, although this comes pretty darn close.  and it doesn’t use ketchup, which is a big plus for me.  I want to completely control the ingredients. Ingredients: 3 tbsp. butter 1/4 c. onion, minced (I use yellow) 2 tsp. dry Read More
