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…

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…

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…

Easter Breakfast at Zia's

Sticky Fingers Scones

Sometimes I really enjoy creating new recipes, altering old favorites to become Gluten-Free and cooking up a storm. Sometimes I just want something already mixed, gluten-free and easy to make. I have been promising a few friends who have had a recent family member diagnosis of a gluten allergy that I would do a list of…

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…

Turkey White Bean Pumpkin Chili

I love my new slow cooker.  I may have mentioned that before.  The only problem I have is that I tend to make a LOT of whatever dish I am making, which wouldn’t BE a problem if I could guarantee the little ones would always like what I have made. That would be nice.  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…

SuperGreen Eggplant Parmesan

Being 1/2 Italian 1/2 Irish can be conflicting for me when it comes to cuisine, but I was raised in the Italian house which means it’s Italian food that dominates in my culinary skills. As a Gluten Free cook some Italian food does present problems I am working on getting around.  I have yet to…

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…

Overnight Tomatoes

I have been making Overnight Tomatoes for years now.  So long I don’t need to look at a recipe. Of course the recipe is so simple I memorized it after the first time, and you will as well. It’s important to note that I did NOT make this recipe up.  I have made little changes…
