I had a very food-filled day yesterday. I went to the farmer’s market first thing and got a ton of produce. Then I came home, made myself a yummy spinach salad, and spent the day prepping veggies & cooking (see below) while watching foodie documentaries. In the evening I went to a talk by Alice … More Sweet Potato Salmon Cakes
I’ve seen these on Pinterest a bunch & I’m finally trying them. I started the Whole30 (pretty much Paleo) at the end of last week (hoping to banish my allergies & asthma…it’s only been 5 days & I can already feel a noticeable difference!) & I’m so tired of my mini frittatas (modified to be dairy … More Eggy Avocado Halves
So, the apartment smells like home currently as I make a favorite from my childhood. It’s technically “chicken & rice casserole”, but I simply eliminate the chicken. It absolutely feels like a very 60’s/70’s era dish and yes, there’s a variation in my circa 1976 copy of Betty Crocker’s Cookbook! (eventually I want to cook … More Mushroom & Rice Casserole
I’m on a cooking bender this weekend since I purchased a 2.8 cu. ft. upright freezer last week (my apartment fridge/freezer is abysmally small). ALL of my Le Creuset pots & pans are being used 🙂 This is one of my go-to recipes for freezing. It’s from a ratatouille nature documentary some friends of mine created a couple … More Cindy & Chris’s Ratatouille
This is an old recipe of my mom’s that she got from someone when we lived in England. I used to get so excited whenever she’d make it when I was growing up. It’s just so good (and makes the house/apartment smell amazing), I love to make up huge batches (I usually make a quadruple … More Basic Curry Sauce
I love pizza…I truly think it’s the perfect food. I can get some gluten-free pizza in LA, but most have a thin, cracker-like crust & sometimes I want, well, a deep dish pizza. I meant to blog about this a couple of weeks ago when I made the little pizzas, but life (& a breakup) … More Mini Deep Dish Pizzas (gluten-free)
So, I had seen recipes for these floating around the web & decided to give it a try. I was surprised at how delicious they are given how crazy easy they are to make. Perfect for a quick breakfast! I’ve made a largish batch & am storing them in the fridge so that I … More Baby Frittatas!
A couple of years ago I modified my mom’s turkey chili recipe to make it vegetarian, since I avoid poultry (completely gave it up November 2011, but quit cooking it at home ~July 2009). It’s a white bean chili & delicious. White Bean Vegetarian Chili Ingredients: 2 Tbsp olive oil 1 medium jalapeño pepper, minced … More White bean vegetarian chili & gluten-free cornbread muffins
