Blueberry gluten-free pancakes

Blueberry gluten-free pancakes

I used a pancake recipe from Bob’s Red Mill for inspiration (of course). They have some of the best recipes with gluten-free flour. I modified it a bit and added in the blueberries. You can replace the blueberries with your favorite fruit, chocolate chips, coconut […]

Sweet potato hash

Sweet potato hash

Ahh… good mornings. They seriously make the whole day better. I had one of them recently. I woke up on time, refreshed, and (mostly) prepared for the day. I also remembered that I made a sweet potato sausage hash the night before! After dicing a […]

Brown rice chips with pico de gallo

Brown rice chips with pico de gallo

This is another easy dish that “wows” guests. I usually serve as an appetizer and trust me, it doesn’t last long! My guests are always asking for more…no matter how much I make! What you need Brown rice chips: 4 brown rice tortillas 2 Tbsp […]

I’m in love with the Farberware Spiraletti Slicer Cutter, found at Target (picture included is from Target.com)! I eat chicken spaghetti every week. I usually make a lot of it at the beginning of the week and eat on it the rest of the week. I love […]

Chicken spaghetti sauce

Chicken spaghetti sauce

I make this sauce weekly. It’s easy to store and easy to eat. I usually freeze some of it too. I put it over gluten-free noodles or make spiral zucchini noodles (pictured)…so good! I think the best way to make sauce is by eyeballing the […]

Muffins: Gluten-free, dairy-free

Muffins: Gluten-free, dairy-free

Updated: November 24, 2017 I updated this recipe to include any kind of fruit filling. Originally, I only made blueberry muffins, but, maybe it’s the fall weather, I added cranberries to this batch. I’ve also tried apple, which is good as well. Basically, whatever fruit you […]

Copper crisper, nonstick tray by Gotham Steel Ti-Cerama

Copper crisper, nonstick tray by Gotham Steel Ti-Cerama

Have I mentioned that I’m a lazy cook? Can I prep it, put it in the oven, and walk away? Yes? Then that’s my kind of cooking. It also means that sometimes, and when I say “sometimes” I mean always, burn the bacon. I put […]

Tangy pork carnitas with red cabbage slaw

Tangy pork carnitas with red cabbage slaw

My sister Kirby’s tangy pork carnitas recipe is so good! It’s a fun, easy recipe that is always a crowd pleaser and best part it, you make it in a Dutch oven or crock pot. Those who know me, know I love to make food […]

Crispy baked chicken wings

Crispy baked chicken wings

I LOVE chicken wings! When I modified my diet, my husband, Tim, and I had to change up our standard poultry seasoning mixture. We came up with an easy and extremely tasty baked chicken wing recipe that still gives you the crunch of fried chicken […]

Focusing on nutrients for better health

Focusing on nutrients for better health

I’m not a chef, I was barely a cook, but now I eat to live. I modified my diet help with my headaches, digestion, mood, and overall wellbeing. I need simple recipes that I can make quickly and easily. I take existing recipes and tweak […]
