Gluten-Free Orange Chicken

This gluten-free orange chicken was born out of a desire to make my daughter happy. When my husband had the traditional gluten-containing version while we were out for lunch one day, my daughter looked on in envy. Surely, I believed—after years of adapting recipes for my gluten-sensitive family—the same taste could be achieved without the […]

Gluten-free Asian pot sticker recipe

I just want you to know that I don’t know and don’t claim to know how to cook everything. Some things I’m not interested in and some things…well, intimidate even me. I suppose the biggest factor in trying something new is giving myself enough time to fiddle with it and being able to live if […]

Sautéed Italian chicken recipe

I was working on my cookbook today on the “How to Sauté” chapter. The accompanying recipe was for an Italian chicken that can be sautéed or grilled. I thought it best to test it while it was still fresh in my mind. I like buying chicken that is not raised with antibiotics, animal-products or hormones […]

Weeknight Meals-BBQ Chicken Tenders

I recently attended the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. When I used to go to the Food Show in NYC back in college, I remembered it being about how many samples we could find and gadgets we could leave with. This time, I went looking for products that I like to term “my kid […]

Uno, Dos, Tres…Taquito!

When it comes to feeding my kids, I listen to them with a grain of salt. Well, what I mean is that I give them some say when it comes to their meals but I add my own twist to it, to make sure it’s healthy. So, that day, while shopping with the 4 1/2 […]
