Eggplant Parmesan has always been one of my favorite dishes but since it’s usually breaded and fried, I had to give it up when I went gluten free. Then I found this Baked Eggplant Parmesan recipe from Jamie Oliver in the NY Times and figured that I could make a few changes to accommodate my gluten […]

Carrot Coconut Curry Soup might not be the recipe you were expecting to see the week of Christmas, but it might be the recipe you need. When life gets busy and crazy, I tend to make soup. Not just because it’s comforting and warm (hello, I just turned my AC back on today after what […]

Almost everyone I know is having a hot summer right now. Even my friends up north, many who don’t have AC, are having temps well into the 90s.  That’s when it’s time to break out foods that are cool & refreshing.  My friend Larry introduced me to this cool Cucumber & Mango Salad and I […]

Before you say, “EWWW! Gross, beets” and click away, allow me to try to convince you… My theory is that most people who hate beets have never had fresh from the garden, into the oven, lightly seasoned, roasted beets. If your only experience with beets is the pickled kind or heaven forbid, the canned and pickled […]

When I lived up north and had a big vegetable garden, it was a miracle if the snow peas made it into the house. Same for the sugar snap peas. I’d stand out in the garden and eat them right off the vines. Even snow peas from the store shine in this simple and easy […]
