Chinese Takeout Chicken

Ever since I added this Swiss Steak recipe to our rotation, I have been dying to experiment with the sauce-yielding-technique it uses. What kept coming to me when I made the steak was, “This would make an amazing base for Chinese food.” So I toyed around with the ingredients and flavors, and I think I […]

If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve likely seen reference to one of my staple dinners when D is traveling. I take whatever cooked meat I have on hand, usually leftovers from the night before, shred it in the food processor, and heat it up with some ketchup, mustard, and a little molasses. It’d be an […]

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, I hunted and hunted for a casserole to serve Christmas morning. I like to offer up something protein-rich and savory along with a touch of something sweet. But, in years’ past, I’ve found the GF, DF casserole recipes to either be lackluster or chock with nightshades. This year, […]

Finally! Fish Tacos!

Today you get the third installment in my Fish Taco recipe – the actual Fish Taco recipe. Corn makes me feel lousy, so while I serve these to the kids and D on corn tortillas, I use Zenbelly’s Plantain Tortillas for myself. If you’ve found a non-grain tortilla sub that you love, please share it in […]

I love fish tacos. I LOVE fish tacos. Fish tacos + Kristine = true love 4ever. (And the ones I make are kick a$$.) It’s that creamy, crunchy combo that just lights my fire. I’m going to share the recipe with you. But I’m going to do it over the course of three days, because […]

This is not only a picture of what it looks like below my standing work station, but also a little hint, hint for the pop culture-savvy, close readers among you. Folks in Georgia, Tennessee, North & South Carolina, Mississippi and Alabama, don’t forget to head to your local Whole Foods Market today for grassfed beef […]

I was stumped. It’s not a cobbler, a buckle, a betty or a crisp. It’s not a pie or a pudding. It’s cake-ish but not really cake-like. I didn’t know what to call it. So, as I opened up WordPress to blog the recipe, I asked my seven-year old, who raved about the dessert last […]

Food for the 4th

The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday. It happens during the summer, and I live for summer, so there’s that. It happens when the produce is amazing and simple and local. So there’s that, too. It’s all about community and the “big deal” is the neighborhood parade and fireworks on the hill. It usually […]

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 […]

Fig Envy

I am a fiend for figs. My grandmother’s yard in Texas is full of fig bushes and trees and, when I would go there in the summer, I spent as much time as I could harvesting the little delights. My Granny and I would pop a few in our mouths, freeze some, and roast others. […]
