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….

Cherry Banana Bread with Toasted Almonds

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

  Today, I had planned on sharing a chicken and wild rice soup recipe, however I didn’t love the picture I captured at all – that happens, quite a bit judging by all the snaps sitting on my desktop screen that probably won’t get imported.   Instead, seeing that it’s well into the new year,… Continue reading

Key Lime Ricotta Cheesecake

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

I am in the fortunate situation of celebrating Thanksgiving twice every year.  Once in October with my Canadian side, and again in November with all my American friends and family. Some years it is exactly the same dinner both times.  Other years, we vary it slightly to reflect the food allergies or aversions of our… Continue reading

Anniversary Chicken

Posted in Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Meats, Paleo, Poultry by Pamela

The hubby and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago.  Normally, you would think that necessitated a evening out in a dimly lit restaurant with a fancy dinner and exorbitantly priced wine. Truth be told, I am usually all over the super expensive restaurant experience.  Banquette seating and thick napkins.  Swoon.  Michelin… Continue reading

Crispy Shrimp with Asian Coleslaw

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

I certainly have developed a newfound respect for cornstarch.  It usually hangs out way in the back of that cabinet that houses the baking powder and various exotic spices rarely used – until today that is. Sure, most of us already know it can be used to thicken soups, sauces and stew.  But used alone… Continue reading

Blueberry Lemon Quick Bread

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

Usually, I have this crazy notion that the baked goods I post here should be over the top, drool worthy, confections. When really, sometimes you just want a nice little loaf.  A basic recipe that doesn’t involve sourcing hard to find ingredients, especially those you have to order online, and then wait for delivery. Nope, this… Continue reading

Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

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

There are a few gluten-free baked items that really intimidate me.  Croissants, Angle Food Cake and Cinnamon Rolls, for some reason they have always seemed daunting to me.  And, today I have finally ticked one off the list. Gluten Free Cinnamon Buns –  as it turns out, not very hard to make at all.  In fact… Continue reading

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

Knowing me,  you would expect a really healthy recipe today, to help un-do all the merry making we have been up to for which feels like months.   Never have I experienced a Holiday Season with so many parties, with Christmas on a Friday, and New Years Eve falling on Thursday, it was easy to… Continue reading

Triple Chocolate Holiday Cookies

Posted in Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

When Holiday baking, don’t you feel you have to raise the bar a bit? Everyday oatmeal craisin cookies, while good, feel like a Monday morning snack. banana bread, a great accompaniment to a bagged lunch. Even my best lemon ricotta cheesecake, which is a favorite for dinner parties, just doesn’t feel special enough. So, I made… Continue reading

Pecan Pumpkin Pie with Brown Sugar Pecan Crumble

Posted in Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

I had an incredibly hard decision to make this week.  To which, I gave many hours of thought, did some web surfing looking for inspiration; and leafed through many, many old-fashioned books. If you ask me to bring dessert to Thanksgiving, I do not take that task lightly.  It’s crucial to the day, don’t you think?… Continue reading

Gluten Free Paleo/Keto Pizza

Posted in Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Paleo, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

So, last month I shared with you that I was intimidated by the thought of making gluten-free pizza. Now, however, I am turning them out weekly.  Why?  What changed? Well, I figured out that my goal wasn’t to try to make a gluten-free pizza that tastes exactly like regular pizza.  It was to just make a… Continue reading

Spatchcocked Chicken with Fingerlings and Brussels Sprouts

Posted in Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Poultry by Pamela

Okay, I have been debating whether I should share this Spatchcocked Chicken recipe with you. Not because it’s too complicated to make — just the opposite. And, not because it contains pricey or hard to find ingredients — geez it’s just a whole, albeit organic, chicken with a few fingerling potatoes and a handful of Brussels… Continue reading

Crispy Quinoa Pizza

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

Most of you know that I don’t usually post recipes that are long on ingredients, time-consuming or laborious. This pizza does not fall into those categories per se, it just requires time, 6-8 hours specifically.  Yep, that might be a deal breaker, I know.  But, it is really worth it. If you are craving shattering… Continue reading
