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

Summer Squash Salad with Feta and Herbs

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

Every summer it seems I gravitate to one type of salad, and repeat various versions of it all season long.  Last year, it was watermelon salad, which provided a nice opportunity to use up that huge bag of gochugaru that is hogging up space in the freezer, thank goodness they tasted so good together. The… Continue reading

Almond Cornmeal Cake with Candied Lemons

Posted in Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

If you are anything like me, you would have tons of recipes bookmarked on your computer, a huge pinterest collection, cooking magazines with the edges of certain pages turned down for further reference and notes on scraps of paper that loosely resemble a recipe for this or that.   Strangely enough, this cake was not… Continue reading

Salmon Cakes with Dill and Mustard

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

When I started this blog many years ago, I wanted to include a section that would give you suggestions for using up leftovers.  But, the thing is, I haven’t figured out how to add it — yet.  It’s a technical issue, not a visual one, I will get there. So, this fabulous recipe for Salmon Cakes… Continue reading

Banana Crumb Cake with Chocolate Almond Streusel

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

While my kitchen may be awash in various types of cookbooks, I rarely use them as intended.  For me, they are more of a resource.  I flip through the pages, linger over the fabulous photos, looking for inspiration rather than instruction — most days. However,  this recipe that Ina Garten created is cake perfection.  I followed the instructions… Continue reading

Charred Broccoli Salad with Red Onion Tomatoes and Feta

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

I wasn’t planning on sharing this recipe for Charred Broccoli Salad with you, because I wasn’t really in love with the picture.  Dumb, I know!  Charred brown foods are hard for me to capture, if I were a professional photographer, with all those big lights, and diffusers, and various other assorted pieces of equipment I can’t even… Continue reading

Seared Scallops with Wilted Spinach and Leeks

Posted in Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Seafood by Pamela

Honestly, when will I learn not to go to the grocery store without a list?  I should’ve just turned around, gone home and retrieved it.  Instead, I wander aimlessly, putting random things — that look really good –into my basket.  When dinnertime rolls around, here I am, with a bunch of food that doesn’t really mesh together…. Continue reading

Dark Chocolate Flourless Cake

Posted in Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free by Pamela

With Valentine’s Day looming, I want to declare my love of chocolate,  preferably dark chocolate. Really, really, good dark chocolate. My guy, also loves his chocolate, we are two peas in a pod that way.  So, my Valentine’s Day gift to him is this decadent flourless dark chocolate cake. Moist, rich, dense and irresistible.  A special… Continue reading

Pork Chops with Figs and Feta

Posted in Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Meats by Pamela

Yesterday, I had the TV turned to the Food Network while getting dressed, so I wasn’t really paying attention, just catching a few phrases here and there.  Bobby Flay was making a salad with grilled figs and feta over bitter greens tossed in a balsamic/orange/honey vinaigrette, that much I caught before continuing with my day…. Continue reading

Tomato Feta Eggplant Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

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

I was on a bit of a eggplant kick this summer, made all sorts of salads with grilled eggplant, and only posted one.  Not that I post everything we eat here, quite the opposite.  You see, to get a good photograph of food, it takes a little bit of time, some fussing with the light,… Continue reading
