Who would’ve thought quinoa would be perfect in granola? I love oat granola and I have a great recipe for Honey Oat Granola with Dried Fruit and Nuts that I’ve made for years. Trouble is, we’re eating completely gluten free and mostly grain-free now and oats just aren’t the best choice for us, even gluten free oats. I’ve had to …

Oh how I adore the fall and all it’s wonderful flavors! Don’t you love hot mugs of steaming soup on chilly days? I’ve come up with a recipe made from all my favorite fall flavors…butternut squash, crisp apples, salty bacon, sultry onions and warm garlic. There’s even a splash of white wine and a smattering of sage and a final swirl of heavy cream. Hmmm……I wish I could share with you how good my kitchen smells right now!
This recipe is life-changing for me y’all. I adore a good, cheesy lasagna but because we are pretty much grain-free at our house, it’s not something I get to enjoy often. Until today! I’m thrilled to share my discovery and a clean and healthy Italian comfort food dish I would be thrilled to serve to friends. And the secret ingredient is…you guessed it…
Sliced and roasted eggplant! As long as you peel and slice the eggplant about ¼ inch thick and salt it for awhile to get the excess liquid out, you’ll be fine. It takes a bit longer to cook than boiling noodles in water but it’s a more nutrient dense option than pasta plus it really holds up well to the sauce and cheese. The salting adds more time but if you’re gluten-free, you won’t mind the delay one little bit. And it’s a great vegetarian, gluten-free and paleo option for guests….
Spring is beautifully expressed in a lovely dish of poached salmon, cool dill sauce and sweet roast asparagus. Don’t be fooled by poaching, it’s simply simmering something in liquid until cooked through. It couldn’t be easier and I know once you try it you’ll love it! And happily, it doesn’t add any fat to the dish so it’s a calorie-concious way to cook. You can poach eggs, fish and chicken breasts with ease. I often poach chicken breasts in hot chicken broth then cool and shred for chicken salad. Poaching is an easy and elegant skill to master. Give it a try and let me know how you like it! Poached salmon with dill sauce might be the perfect romantic dinner for two!
