Caesar Salad with Bacon Tomatoes and Onion

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

Many, many lifetimes ago my husband worked in the dinning room of a big fancy hotel.  There, they made a “classic” caesar salad, that he still maintains contained no mayo, mustard, and heaven forbid no worcestershire. Looking at the picture you may surmise that this is clearly not that “classic” recipe, with the additions of… Continue reading

Lemon Cheesecake Brownies

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

Two circumstances lead to the creation of  these Lemon Cheesecake Brownies.  The first, I had a container of mascarpone cheese in the fridge nearing its expiration date and wanted to use it up.  The second, while chatting with a friend I discovered her husband was going to be out of town and she would all… Continue reading

Blood Orange Ricotta Cheesecake

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

For the last few years I have defaulted to three super easy desserts to serve at dinner parties.  If you entertain you know it’s more than enough work to come up with a menu, shop, cook a fabulous meal, and set a beautiful table.   Last year it was pears that I popped into the oven… Continue reading

Scones with Currants and Honey

Posted in Brunch, Dessert, Gluten Free by Pamela

A few years ago, I made my first attempt at baking scones and came up with this Blueberry Scone Cake, while really good, and everyone gobbled it up without any question as to its provenance, I felt I hadn’t nailed a traditional scone.  That’s the thing with gluten free baking, sometimes it’s an epic fail,… Continue reading

Mussels with Chunky Tomato and Broccoli

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

With this hot summer weather, I think everyone wishes they were on the French Riviera eating moules frites while sipping rosé, am I right?  Not the usual mis en scène here, though.  I often find myself caught in an endless cycle of summer salads, which I rotate depending on mood.  However, I am really proud that I… Continue reading

Lemon Zucchini Loaf with Lemon Drizzle

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

Every year around this time, I get the urge to bake.  It seems like ages since I last turned the oven on.  Lately, it has been too hot to even contemplate any form of baked good; that is until this week.  Yippee! This endeavor dovetailed nicely with the banner crop we have of zucchini this… Continue reading

Charred Corn Poblano Salad with Feta

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

Most summers I tend to obsess over one specific salad.  A salad that circulates through pot-lucks, bbq’s or just dinner at home.  Last summer I made this Quinoa Lentil Salad many, many times.  The previous summer, my garden was bursting with vegetables, which inspired this Summer Squash Salad with Feta and Herbs. This year a… Continue reading

Shirataki Asian Noodle Salad

Posted in Gluten Free, keto, Paleo, Pasta, Salad, Sides, Vegan, Vegetarian by Pamela

Last month I enthusiastically shared my interest in Skinny Pasta, now one of my new go-to’s for a quick lunch.  As I previously told you; these noodles are virtually calorie free, carb free, no sodium, grain free, gluten free, vegan, full of fiber, oh and they come in different shapes too!  A lot of hype… Continue reading

Carrot Apple Walnut Muffins

Posted in Brunch, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian by Pamela

Last week, while perusing Instagram, my daughter asked if I had ever made carrot cake.  Well, sure a long time ago B.C. (before Celiac’s) I did.  Back then I could bake just about anything with success, regular flour is… predictable.  Gluten free, well not so much. I love carrot cake, it’s a great way to… Continue reading

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

Pasta with Eggplant and Roasted Tomatoes

Posted in Gluten Free, Pasta, Vegan, Vegetarian by Pamela

I wonder how many people eat eggplant on a regular basis?  It doesn’t seem to fall into our weekly dinner rotation as, say, broccoli or green beans. We like it, we do!  It’s not even that exotic or hard to find, we just forget about it perhaps. And then you cook some and remark “why… Continue reading
