Crispy Seasoned Chicken

Chicken Rub Recipe

We eat a lot of chicken in our house and I’m always looking for new flavorful ways to prepare it because lets face it, plain chicken won’t send your brood running to the table for dinner!  The inspiration for this recipe comes from the dynamic duo behind Paleo Parents and the brilliant kid-friendly cookbook, Eat […]

Udi's Southwest Grilled Cheese and Bologna Sandwich

There’s nothing like the call of National Grilled Cheese Month to bring a gluten free blogger out of semi-retirement (a.k.a. Little League baseball season)! I was recently challenged to come up with a grilled cheese sandwich recipe featuring Udi’s gluten free bread and Horizon Organic cheese, and I just couldn’t resist. I know what you’re […]

Gluten and Grain-Free Crab Cakes

Crab Cakes Grain-Free, Egg-Free and Soy-Free**

  I can vividly recall the first time I was introduced to a crab cake.  I was 25 years old and we met in a dimly lit restaurant over a glass of Cabernet.  I was shy at first, but my tall and handsome companion gently urged me to put aside my ambivalence and surrender to […]

Dairy-Free Basil Pesto
