Sweet Baby Banana! A Fun Fruit Topping Your Kids Will Love

Baby Banana Topping

Last week when I was cruising the aisles of Whole Foods I found a treasure in a pile of bananas. Hidden beneath the plain Jane normal bananas was a whole hand of baby bananas! I haven’t found a good picture, but each baby banana is about as long as an adult finger. There are 15 […]

Gluten Free Menu Swap – November 12th

Gluten Free Ravioli

Here’s the picture of my gluten free tortellini attempt. As you can see we ended up making ravioli. This week’s menu starts off easy since it is largely a repeat of last week! We had quite a busy week buying a new car and working on a house that we’re putting up for sale, so […]

Pumpkin Stuffed French Toast

Pumpkin Stuffed French Toast

We’re having our first freeze tonight and our house is cold. I’m bundled up in my favorite college sweatshirt with my hands wrapped around a mug of hot chocolate. It seems like the perfect night to write about a warm comfort food breakfast. Sunday morning we were up early since David didn’t realize that the […]

The leaves are starting to change color here in Alabama and my winter garden of greens is flourishing. I think that the arugula and lettuce are almost ready to harvest, so I made sure to include them in my menu for this week. And as soon as we get our first frost the chard, collards, […]

Do You Know the Muffin Man?

Gluten Free Banana Muffins

Monday morning I was attempting to clear a path through the dirty dishes when I came upon an extremely ripe banana. With no idea what we were having for breakfast, I took this as a sign that we should have Banana Nut Bread. What followed was a typical early morning cooking experience in the Pickett […]

Gluten Free Menu Swap – October 29th

David and I just got back from a great weekend with my parents, and I am so glad that I took the time last Sunday to prepare menus for two weeks. I knew then that we would get in late today and that I would be tired, so I decided to be nice to myself […]

Halloween Quesadillas

Gluten Free Halloween quesadillas

I first made these quesadillas a few months ago and realized that they would be perfect for Halloween. Besides being orange and black, these quesadillas are really fast to make which is perfect for a night when you’re trying to cook, trick-or-treat, and get kids to bed at a reasonable hour. I’m going to give […]

How to Prep a Butternut Squash

Peel the butternut squash

Winter squash can be a bit intimidating to the uninitiated. They suddenly appear in the supermarket when the first hint of autumn is in the air, a heaped pile of colors and shapes. A lot of people buy them for decoration. But the wise cooks buy them and cook them up into wonderful pies and […]

Gluten Free Menu Swap – October 22

David eating his carseat

We’ll be out of town this weekend, so my menu for the week is based on what is in the refrigerator that needs to be eaten. I think I did a pretty good job, since our grocery bill today was only a third of what it usually is. The meals are relatively well-balanced and I […]

Curried Sweet Potato Fries

sweet potato fries

I made up a new recipe last night! This is a pretty common occurrence, but it’s always exciting because of the suspense when you take the first bite. I knew I’d hit on a good one when I wanted to go back and make more as soon as we were done eating. Unfortunately neither John […]

Falafel on Flat Bread with Creamy Cilantro Sauce

Falafel with Creamy Cilantro Dressing

Falafel on Flat Bread. Fast Food for the Gluten Free Family. That’s what falafel is for me – a meal that seems as indulgent as stopping by McDonald’s. It’s not that it’s really fast….it just tastes like it should be. Start by making the dressing. It needs some time in the fridge for all of […]

How to Make Gluten Free Cream of Mushroom Soup

Sauteed Mushrooms

So many of the favorite dishes from my childhood started with a can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup. Poppy Seed Chicken, Chicken Rollups, Chicken Spaghetti Casserole, my Grandmother’s gravy….all unattainable on a gluten free diet until you learn how to make a white sauce. For more great gluten free recipes like this one, make […]
