• When I made sweet potatoes a few weeks ago, I had a ton of leftovers and was trying to find a creative way to re-use them.  I came up with this sweet potato and quinoa veggie burger and it was a hit with the whole fam (baby included)!  I was really just experimenting when I […]

  • I am amazed at how many people scoff at the idea of eating turnips.  They are a great, nutritious vegetable and can be used in so many different ways!  My first questions are, “When did you eat them and how did you cook them?”.  People usually say that they remember eating the bitter turnip greens […]

  • Our local Wegmans just did a full renovation and as a thank you to its customers, they featured several products at sale prices that were from 12 years ago when they opened!  Pretty awesome, if you ask me.  So, sea scallops were on sale for $9.99 a pound (fresh, wild, beautiful, local) instead of the […]

  • Since life now revolves around our son, I always have him in mind when I am making meals for the week.  I introduced some mashed foods the last two weeks (banana, avocado, sweet potato), and I decided to go for a comforting chicken stew; all the veggies get nice a soft and we can smash […]

  • I have talked before about the health benefits of cabbage and how much I love it.  In this post, I share a shredded cabbage recipe that is both sweet and savory.  When I went to buy some cabbage at the store, I found gorgeous purple and black seedless grapes on sale, and thought they might […]

  • kohlrabi-noodles-allergen free

    This time of year, Kohlrabi is available at our local farmer’s markets and sometimes at the local grocery stores.  People ask me all the time, “What is this vegetable and what do you do with it?”  The easiest answer is:  It is a vegetable similar to cabbage, but tastes like an apple and a turnip […]

  • allergen free salad

    This year, for the 4th of July, we had some friends over for brunch.  I made several dishes that everyone could eat, but then I also had a few brunchy staples like eggs, bagels and cream cheese.  I made a delicious cauliflower rice dish with turkey bacon and wilted baby greens.  The salad in this […]

  • Have you noticed how they make pasta out of practically everything these days?  I like that the pastas that I used to search for tirelessly, and pay a fortune for several years ago, are now readily available at pretty much every grocery store (and much cheaper too!).  My husband and I really enjoy the black […]

  • gluten-free-turnip-noodles

    This week, we bought turnips at the local Farmer’s Market.  Agricola, a local restaurant in Princeton, New Jersey that also has a farm stand at the market for selling produce, had lovely large turnips, so we bought a few.  The young lady working at the farm stand asked what I like to do with these […]

  • Back in the fall, I posted my gluten free, vegan green bean casserole recipe.  It is always a big hit at parties and is super easy to make.  This week, I was in a hurry to make a few meals, so I made sure this green bean casserole was on my list.  I also wanted […]
