Sweet and Savory Spinach Crepes

It’s always so fun to get my monthly box of Organic Girl Greens for recipe creation, but this month was even better!  They sent me two brand new mixes to try, Super Spinach and Mache Rosettes. Both are ahhhhhmazing, but lets start off with the Spinach. I enjoy the challenge of not ALWAYS making a…

Soup’s On…..Bone Broth

    Chicken Soup.  You know how they say it’s good for the soul….I think it is.  Of course with how busy we are in life, keeping boxes of organic chicken broth or stock in our cupboards is the way most of us go, it’s easy and convenient to have it on hand.  I admit…

Naked Burrito Bowl

    Regular Burritos are not Gluten Free I am sad to say. Those lovely large tortillas they use to wrap all the yumminess up all snug and then warm, are made with flour.  I have found a nice Gluten Free wrap I use to make quesadillas, but they are to small and not pliable enough…

Mango Madness

I love a good Mango, and they are VERY plentiful here in South Florida. A while back my sister lived in a place with a mango tree and would come over with them by the armful, so you would think I would be adept at cutting up a Mango without massacring it …..wouldn’t you? Nope….

Banana Oat Greek Yogurt Muffins

    Gluten Free Baking. It’s one of the more difficult areas of gluten free living for sure, and most of the recipes you have seen me tackle have come from my trying pre-made mixes.  While there is nothing wrong with that, we all want to know which mixes are worth the money or not…

The Heart of Romaine

  (Originally Published Memorial Day Weekend May 27 2014) So this month when Organic Girl sent me their wonderful Hearts of Romaine to play with, I honestly didn’t even take the kids into consideration.  I knew I didn’t want to hide the sweet crunchy tender hearts, I wanted them to be front and center….but they…

Summer Fruit Cobbler

Blueberry Cobbler I am going to start this one off by being completely honest.  This is NOT low-calorie, NOT low sugar and NOT low fat.  It is however Gluten Free, incredibly simple and ridiculously delicious! When you see the ingredients you will know why. Making tasty gluten free baked goods is a definite challenge, a…

Drink Your Greens Contest

It’s June ALREADY?!?!?!  Wow, I can’t believe how fast this year is flying. Summer is here and that means…..Smoothie’s! (Well if you live in Florida it’s also synonymous with living on the outskirts of hell…weather wise). Wherever you live, you probably drink more smoothies in the summer than you do in any other season, so…

Ratatouille by Julia Child

For someone who loves to cook, I don’t often follow recipes exactly.  I mean I use them all the time, but I tend to have a rather loose manner with them, altering them to my tastes or using my own experiences with a dish.  Except of course with baking.  Baking is a science and experimenting…
