So, this recipe makes a lot of food. It’s become a regular in my family’s rotation in part because it does make so much. Any time dinner can become lunch for me the next day, I’m #winning. Before I realized I had celiac and went out to dinner more often, broccoli and chicken was one […]

I found a terrific sort-of-recipe for a homemade version of Korean barbecue in the Bon Appetit November 2015 issue. It’s a sort-of-recipe and not an actual recipe because it has a bunch of different options you can make. Anyway, I took that recipe as a baseline and reduced the sugar content, removed nightshades (which makes […]

In the blog that I run in my fantasies, I posted some fabulous new recipes for you all to enjoy this holiday season. Since, however, you can only see the real, actual WordPress blog and not the one in my fantasy world, I had to settle for this compilation of my existing recipes which are […]

Asian-Braised Pork Wraps

This is one of those recipes that is purposefully mild, so as to have broad-kid appeal. (Looking for another one? Check out my Pesto Chicken Zusketti where you roast the garlic to reduce the bite.) Consequently, for the grown-up palate, you may want to have some sriracha on the table. Actually, my husband strongly encourages you […]

Bacon Cheeseburger Kebabs

Yes. You read that right. Bacon Cheeseburger Kebabs. Some background: The butcher at my nearest Whole Foods Market features a few prepared foods in addition to the cuts of meat. Lately, they’ve offered two versions of kefta, one Greek and one Moroccan. The latter had nightshades but the former, ohmygoodnessgracious. So unbelievably delish. I wanted […]

The big problem is that I can’t eat nightshades and many of the best uses for ground beef demand nightshades – Italian recipes, chili, even the picadillo I wanted to re-create. The other problem is […]

When I am pressed for time and need a simple supper for my crew, I almost always make a frittata. Last weekend, we spent Sunday afternoon at a darling pumpkin patch that is 100% full of Southern kitsch.  We shot corn cobs from pneumatic guns, watched pig races, rode a cow tractor, and more.  We […]

I’ve been trying to vary up my meat selection lately, getting more adventuresome with my cuts.  I rely heavily on my butcher’s advice about how to prepare cuts I’ve never served before and I have also been known to curl up with my [amazon_link id=”061813512X” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]favorite meat cookbook[/amazon_link] before bed. The other day, […]

I’ve been all sorts of sick since Friday night.  Two of the kids have come down with it, too, to varying degrees, but I am far and away the sickest. (Perhaps that has something to do with being sleep-deprived?  Hmmm.) Anyhow, I haven’t held down solid food since Friday, and yet those little kids just […]
