Chopped Greek Salad with Quinoa and Lentils

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

I have noticed that every summer I seem to gravitate to a go-to salad, one I can quickly whip up for a impromptu BBQ at a neighbors,  a dish to pass for a picnic, or maybe just for a quick fix dinner here.  Last year it was this Summer Squash with Feta and Herb Salad, the… Continue reading

Kohlrabi and Apple Slaw with Harissa Dressing

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

Luckily, everyone here loves coleslaw, and, in my quest to make sure we all get enough veg in our diet – that certainly helps.  While fish tacos usually get a traditional savoy cabbage slaw –  other meals are ripe for different versions of coleslaw. The beauty of coleslaw is that you can julienne almost any vegetable and… Continue reading

Broccolini Frittata with Crispy Potato Crust

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

I am sure I have mentioned before, that we eat a lot of eggs for dinner here.  Sometimes it’s a quick and easy frittata – like this Broccolini Frittata today, or maybe eggs Benedict with blender hollandaise, always a hit. And, my all time favorite – toast with smashed avocado, a sprinkle of lemon juice,… Continue reading

Chicken Soup with Lime Avocado and Quesco Fresco Cheese

Posted in Gluten Free, Paleo, Poultry, Sides, Soup by Pamela

I have confessed in the past, to discussing dinner options while eating breakfast, which I think is smart if you have to think about defrosting or running to the market if you need a few more items.   I have not shared though, that I tend to discuss how to make — insert any dinner/… Continue reading

Brussels Sprout Kale and Pomegrante Salad

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

Corn Muffins – Gluten and Dairy Free

Posted in Gluten Free, Paleo, Sides, Soup, Vegetarian by Pamela

Okay, I was handed a challenge today.  A dear friend’s son has been having serious digestive issues, their Doctor suggested a version of the candida diet, which means basically no sugars or most grains.  He is 15 years old, and very active in sports, so starving all the time of course.  Could I possibly develop… 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

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

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
