Pot roast

Not My Mom’s Pot Roast

This is easy. My mom didn’t really make pot roast. My memories, growing up in an Italian family on the east coast, were of risotto, bracciole, meatballs and the occasional roast beef. Unfortunately, roasts were not her forte. My dad would always ask her to under cook it “You can put it back in if […]

Gluten Free Waffles (and regular too)

I love making waffles for the family; even on the weekdays. I always make extra and put them in the freezer. My almost 3 year old daughter would eat them every day if I let her. She’s the one with the gluten sensitivity so I’ve adapted a favorite recipe just for her. The thing is, […]

Beef Paprikia with Noodles (Gluten and Dairy Free!)

My friend Stuart has been after me to provide some more blog entries. Although he’s a vegetarian, I hope he doesn’t mind this one on beef. I think it’s worthy, and the recipe I provide later could also be made with a veggie ground round. I have recently become a “conscientious carnivore” by purchasing locally […]

The Best Quinoa Pilaf

I attended a veggie pot-luck dinner with some friends recently. I look forward to meeting up with this group because they are so creative with the use of grains and veggies (ahh, people after my own heart!). Ironically, the family chef brought only wine because I am currently without a kitchen (more to come on […]

Beef Saffron Risotto

I was asked recently for my “signature dish”. That was a tough one. I have a few that I find I make over and over that would qualify. But when it came down to it, I thought about what it is I feel I represent; easy, nutritious and delicious meals that can feed the whole […]

The New Rice Krispy

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE rice krispie treats and would eat them everyday if you gave me the opportunity. But now, as a mom, I evaluate every snack and although I do allow my children to have special treats, I try to avoid a lot of processed food and especially things made with refined […]

The Best Gluten-Free Brownies

Do you remember some of the products like “I can’t believe it’s not butter!” or “I can’t believe it’s frozen yogurt!”? Well, get ready for “I can’t believe these brownies are gluten-free!”. I have been cooking and baking gluten-free since July 2007 when a doctor told me that one of the reason’s for my daughter’s […]

Yummy, Yummy in my Tummy!

Yes, that is what my 4 year old said tonight of dinner. And what was it? An easy, tasty dish that was ready in less than 31 minutes (just in case Rachel has that 30 minute thing copyrighted!): Grilled Italian Sausages served on top of Lentil-Rice Pilaf with Peas. My family really likes sausages (remember, […]
