Greek Shirataki Salad

Posted in Brunch, Gluten Free, Paleo, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

As you can imagine, I am perpetually on the hunt for new food trends.  Anything that can be adaptable here in my gluten free/vegan/sometimes vegetarian/meat lovers kitchen is a win.  However, it was my daughter who introduced me to Shirataki Noodles by Skinny Pasta- chip off the old block perhaps? Shirataki or Konjac noodles are… Continue reading

Blueberry Almond Lemon Loaf

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegetarian by Pamela

This week, I have been experimenting in the kitchen with a grain free-gluten free-dairy free-nut free muffin.  So far, this darn muffin troubles me.  Sure, I have come across a few recipes online with fabulous pictures of such muffins, which makes me wonder why mine won’t work?  They look good, but the middle of the… Continue reading

Asian Salmon Rice Cakes with Kimchi Mayo

Posted in Appetizers, Brunch, Gluten Free, Seafood, Sides by Pamela

Last Saturday, we invited a few friends over for dinner.   Naturally, we were really excited and planned a fabulous meal – Asian salmon, sticky rice, steamed baby bok choy with garlic sauce.  We even had fantastic kimchi from the Asian store that’s not even remotely close to home, but so good that I drive there… Continue reading

Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

My husband who happily eats everything without compliant, recently pointed out that I tend to gravitate to cheesecake when making dessert for dinner parties or holidays.  “just an observation, that’s all” he said, which is code for please make more, he does really love any type of dessert. When entertaining, any steps you can accomplish… Continue reading

Crispy Coconut Chicken Tenders

Posted in Appetizers, Brunch, Gluten Free, Paleo, Poultry by Pamela

I must admit chicken tenders have never been in my regular dinner rotation, for a couple of reasons. When the kids were young, it was a treat to go to a restaurant, made even more special when ordering something that we normally didn’t cook at home.  Back then anything to get the kids excited about… Continue reading

Ginger Cardamon Spice Loaf

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegetarian by Pamela

My daughter regularly texts me obscure grocery items that she wants purchased – by me of course.  Last month it was: matcha powder, cocoa nibs, jackfruit and cardamon pods.  All with the intention of creating something she most likely has seen on Pinterest. Most of the time these specialty items are used once, then languish in the… Continue reading

Pumpkin Spice Almond Bread

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

Although fall has arrived, I feel it is not my job to bombard you with all things pumpkin.  We can thank Starbucks for starting the Pumpkin Latte craze.  Although it certainly doesn’t stop there, at the grocery store today I spotted Pumpkin Spice Instant Oatmeal, Pumpkin Spice Cheerio’s, Lucy’s Pumpkin Patch Cookies, I draw the… Continue reading

Vegan Blueberry “Cheesecake”

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegetarian by Pamela

I have posted a lot of cheesecake here – mainly because I love them,  also because you can adapt them to so many occasions.  Dinner party?  This Meyer Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake or Key Lime Cheesecake marry well with any menu. Holiday? Try this Pumpkin Pie Ricotta Cheesecake or equally as festive Pumpkin Cheesecake with Candied Nut… Continue reading

Chickpea Flatbread with Crispy Shallots

Posted in Appetizers, Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

I picked up a tin of Za’tar Za’tar while traveling a while back, such a while back that I don’t remember where.  It seemed like serendipity when I found a recipe for Socca – a grilled chickpea flatbread made frequently in the south of France. A Middle Eastern spice blend of marjoram or thyme, oregano, dried… Continue reading

Charred Corn Salad with Tomatoes and Feta

Posted in Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Salad, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

Every summer there seems to be a salad that I gravitate to, and tend make again and again.  The criteria is usually that it’s super easy to whip up, no ingredients that are strange or hard to procure. Extra points if it contains local, in season produce, doesn’t need extended refrigeration, can pair well with most… Continue reading

Blueberry Corn Muffins

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Gluten Free, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

I am not going to pretend that I haven’t posted these muffins previously, I have.  The reason to share them with you again is because they are so versatile.  I made them the first time because I was traveling and needed them to be hearty enough to last in my carryon without being squashed too… Continue reading

Summer Green Vegetable Salad

Posted in Brunch, Gluten Free, Salad, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

Some of the best dishes I have ever created have were developed, not because I followed the recipe correctly (I am really not good at that) but rather because I didn’t have all the ingredients listed, and had to just wing it.  For all you recipe followers, I know that is a tough concept – just call me… Continue reading

Creamy Ricotta Pasta with Broccolinni

Posted in Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Pasta, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

My daughter was home from university last weekend and noticed a small container of ricotta cheese in the fridge.  Lately, I have been spreading it on toast, then showering it with lemon zest and capers, adding few slices of smoked salmon, and finishing with tons of fresh chopped dill for a fabulous and easy lunch….
