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

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

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

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

Watermelon Feta Watercress Salad with Gochugaru Viniagrette

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

Every summer, we seem to gravitate to one dish, a lot.  This year, the winner was any form of a watermelon salad. Mainly because it pairs so well with BBQ’ed meats and fish.  And any dish that is both sweet, salty and spicy always has my vote.  And,  I am the one cooking, we eat… Continue reading

Tomato Soup with Roasted Garlic and Herbed Croutons

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

I was watching the Barefoot Contessa the other day while she made homemade tomato soup, not hard to do really.  I started to wonder why I’ve never made it myself? I think it is perhaps time to put away the childhood version of tomato soup from the can, We deserve a more refined, grown up… Continue reading

Brussels Sprouts Kimchi

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

I think I have to thank Mrs Kim, a cute little Korean lady in her late 60’s, for making my children adventurous eaters.  You see, she and her husband have owned the Japanese/Korean restaurant near us for as long as I can remember. We started taking our children there when they were perhaps 4 and… Continue reading

Gluten Free Thanksgiving Stuffing

Posted in Gluten Free, Poultry, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

It may be a bit early for some of you to be thinking about Thanksgiving, but not me. With tons of family and friends up north, as in Canada, it’s time to talk turkey. Or to discuss Gluten Free Thanksgiving Stuffing. Since Canadian Thanksgiving is this coming Monday October 14th. Some of you might be… Continue reading

Gluten Free Pasta Shells with Garlicky Kale and Lemon

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

Mealtimes here are more often than not, a compromise, and lunch yesterday was no exception. Earlier in the week I had purchased a nice package of assorted exotic mushrooms, and was planning on mushroom risotto for dinner. However Bunny wanted pasta, she always wants pasta. I had been looking at those fancy mushrooms in the refrigerator for… Continue reading

Quick Tomato Mozzarella Salad – Gluten Free

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

It seems every year at this time, and this year is no exception, we try to fit in all those casual  BBQ’s that we haven’t had time for all summer. This year we promised ourselves we would not schedule every weekend, that we would try for more spontaneous get togethers. With no plans we could… Continue reading

Chicken Salad with Pesto and Garden Vegetables – Gluten Free

Posted in Gluten Free, Poultry, Salad, Sides by Pamela

Today, if you are thinking this is one of my well researched, thoroughly tested and executed recipes. I must say, thank you. Because it was really just some great leftover BBQ chicken, a few veggies from the crisper, and a couple of spoonfuls of pesto. It was really fabulous. If I can give you one… Continue reading

Carrot Salad with Crasins, Cilantro and Jalapeño

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

Yesterday, after setting out breakfast for the kids. I made my usual plea for input. “What do you guys think we should have for dinner tonight?” No response. Perhaps too early in the day? I went through usual litany of choices. Chicken? Fish? Salad? Eggs? Stir Fry? BBQ? Fancy Sandwich? Beans? Pasta? Still nothing. Until… Continue reading
