Roasted Balsamic Butternut Squash with Goat Cheese

Roasted Balsamic Butternut Squash with Goat Cheese

I like most variety of winter squash, but Lo isn’t a big fan.  He’ll eat a squash dish if I make it (usually), but he’s not a big fan…just a good sport.  And he probably won’t eat leftovers, so I’ll be like – why have […]

Gluten free Zucchini Bread

Gluten free Zucchini Bread

I ended up with some extra zucchini in my fridge this summer (unfortunately, it wasn’t grown in my volunteer garden), so I decided to make some gluten-free zucchini bread for a Norwex party I was hosting (more on Norwex another time…but it’s awesome – and […]

Homemade Magic Shell

Homemade Magic Shell

We eat kind of a lot of ice cream up in here.  I like to jazz my ice cream up sometimes and I was sometimes tempted to buy Magic Shell (or the Reese’s version) at the grocery store, but it’s expensive and I feel like […]

Gluten free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies because I had all of the ingredients and they seemed so easy…and I love cookies. And I loved these.  Gluten free cookie recipes that don’t require a million ingredients are few and far in between, so these were very appealing.  I’m […]

Gluten-free Chocolate-Covered Oreo Cake

This cake recipe is long overdue.  Okay, it’s only been just over a month since I made it, but it’s so good, I should have posted it the next day.  I wanted to make a gluten-free cake to celebrate our friend’s birthday, so I told […]

Cheesy Grilled Stuffed Mini Peppers

I love the bags of those cute mini peppers at the grocery store.  I know bell peppers “should” be purchased organically because they are part of the dirty dozen, but the list doesn’t specify mini sweet peppers, so I’ll just pretend like these are okay […]

Gluten-free Chicken Avocado Spinach Burgers

I found myself with spinach and avocado in the fridge, and some ground chicken in the freezer and remembered seeing a pin about chicken and avocado burgers, so I pulled the chicken to thaw overnight.  This recipe is really customizable because the burgers take on […]

Red Gold All-in-One Lasagna

In honor of the Red Gold “Simply Fun, Simply You” Lasagna Party Sweepstakes on its Facebook page, Red Gold sent me an “All-In-One” gift pack of tomatoes, lasagna noodles, and a spatula to show me how easy it is to make lasagna using dry noodles […]

Sweet and Spicy Squash

I wanted to post this before Thanksgiving because it makes a fab Thanksgiving side dish (as a matter of fact, I made it again for that – but didn’t take pictures).  As usual of late, things don’t get done when I think they will.  But […]

Slow Cooker BBQ Potato Soup

Slow Cooker BBQ Potato Soup

I had a bag of yukon gold potatoes that had been hanging out since before Jenson was born that I needed to use up before they sprouted their own babies.  Potato soup seemed like the easiest way to use up the whole bag and would […]
