Mache Rosette Nicoise Salad

Organic Girl Organic Girl, oh how I love Organic Girl! Ok, I SWEAR I don’t secretly work for the company, but I discovered them a few years ago and have been hooked ever since. Luckily for me they seem to love me back and this month along with the brand new Super Spinach blend, I…

Cinnamon Port Cranberry Sauce

THANKSGIVING! I have to make this brief as I am working on my Thanksgiving dinner (this is MY holiday in the family) and I will share details of the meal in my post feast/food coma state.  However I would be remiss if I didn’t post at least ONE of my favorite recipes pre-game day. I…

It’s All About The Corn Flakes

When you are Gluten Free you don’t get to enjoy very many fried or “crispy” foods you once did.  Which is probably a good thing.  However for those times you want to make things like breaded eggplant, chicken fingers, zucchini fries or more, most gluten free breadcrumbs just don’t cut it.  Panko is out of…

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Well in the past few weeks while I have been absent from the blog, I have still been cooking up a storm, and eating like I am getting ready to hibernate for the winter. Of course I live somewhere where you can still wear bathing suits through winter, so I better cut it out.  However…

Williams-Sonoma Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

I love fall. Up North where I was born, the air gets cool and crisp, the leaves change color the smell of burning firewood starts to permeate the air.  In Southern California where I lived for so long, the days are sunny, the temperatures range from the mid 60’s to the low 80’s.  You can…

Kale. It’s What’s For Breakfast.

Or brunch……or breakfast for dinner, you get the idea.  Generally when you think of Kale, you may not think of it as a breakfast element unless you are juicing it or using it in a smoothie.  That’s how I used to think of Kale in the morning, then I put it in scrambled eggs and…

Organic Girl Baby Kale Giveaway and Recipes – Snacks

I have to admit, 10 years or so ago I had probably never even tasted Kale.  Now, it’s one of the most talked about leafy greens out there.  I find myself eating some practically every day lately. The fact that the lovely people over at Organic Girl sent me a bunch of their newest product,…

It’s Time To Stuff It

Stuffing, it’s not just for Thanksgiving! A few weeks ago I was in some sort of “stuffed foods” mood.  Not entirely sure why, but I went with it.  First up was the stuffed burgers.  I won’t spend much time on that, as everyone makes stuffed burgers. A friend bought us almost 6 pounds of ground…

Zucchini Chips

Zucchini. As a kid I HATED it.  I don’t know if I ever even tried it, but you couldn’t get me to go near that or any other kind of squash, which was weird because I was generally not a picky eater.  Now one of my favorite foods. Some days Littledude LOVES it.  Others, well…

It’s Cocktail Hour Somewhere

I have a lot of recipes coming up to share but it’s time for another Zia’s Kitchen review. Guess what?  It’s NOT a cookie review.  I have been saying I needed to stop just reviewing cookies and review something healthy. Organic alcohol made with a berry known for it’s incredible healthy properties counts right? (I…

Why is it called Chicken Pot Pie?

Just one of those culinary questions I have.  I mean why is it called POT pie?  It’s a “pie”.  Is it because it is made IN a pot? In that case shouldn’t most things have the term “pot” in the description? It confounds me.  These are the things that keep me up at night. I…
