Garlicky Broccoli; Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Recipe

I bought a cook book a few weeks ago centered around cooking from the garden. It features recipes from the early 1900s - the thing is, none of the recipes are for vegetables.  You know why?  Because when vegetables are fresh, they're perfect steamed.  I bought the biggest, I mean BIGGEST head of broccoli at the farmers market on Wednesday.  I love my broccoli steamed but I can only eat so much of it. This recipes is light and clean' it's also gluten free, dairy free, soy free, nut free, egg … [Read more...]

I FINALLY found the recipe I created for my gluten free, dairy free, soy free, nut free Stuffed Red (or Green) Peppers! The last time I made these I went into labor in the middle of the night :).

I think the guests might be … [Read more...]

Gluten Free Bread Maker White Bread; Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Nut Free Recipe

There's nothing better than the smell of a loaf of bread baking while homemade strawberry jam is cooking on the stove.  A few years ago, before I was gluten free, this was an easy feat. I have about 200 recipes for bread maker white bread.  I'm ok with store bought gluten free bread most of the time, but occasionally I just can't stop thinking about the taste of a slice of bread  just out of the bread maker, slathered in grass fed butter and homemade jam.  It's the best taste in the world! This … [Read more...]

Quinoa Pilaf with Mushrooms

The first time my husband had quinoa a few years ago it was at a quaint little restaurant in the fishing town of Leland in the Northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan.  If you haven't visited Northern Michigan do a Google search right now and start pinning all of the cool places you want to visit :). I grew up spending my summers "up North" as we call it "down state" (Southern Michigan), but didn't realize how amazingly lucky we are in Michigan to have such beautiful waters, beaches, hills, and … [Read more...]
