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

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

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

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….
