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 […]

Slowcooker Green Chile Stew (and Home for the Holidays Giveaway Winners)

Green Chile Stew

I love Green Chile Stew and I cannot think of a better soup to warm you up on a cold, dreary winter day.  And the green chile is great for clearing out the sinuses! This recipe for Green Chile Stew comes from my father-in-law, Jim…he’s a bonafide soup master. Print Slowcooker Green Chile Stew Prep […]

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 […]

Kickin’ Chicken Soup

Kickin' Chicken Soup

My in-laws are the king and queen of soup recipes and this is one of my absolute favorites, perfect for a crisp autumn day like today…it will warm you right up! Another bonus, it’s naturally gluten-free so there are no hard-to-find specialty products you need to buy or make ahead of time.

The BEST Mayo-Free Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad13*

At least that’s what both of my sisters said last week when I had them sample it. I first whipped up this interesting little gem of a recipe back in February, when we had just begun the modified elimination diet before going to see Dr. Vikki Petersen.  I think the hardest foods to give up […]

Garlicky Chicken Thighs in Red Pepper Sauce

Garlicky Chicken Thighs with Red Pepper Sauce1

I recently picked up a copy of Fine Cooking Magazine, the Weeknight Dinner issue, and I have to say that it was a very wise purchase!  Most of the recipes are either naturally gluten-free (meaning no major substitutions are required), or are easily adaptable to be GF. This recipe in particular caught my eye as […]

Dairy/Casein-Free, Egg-Free Chicken Salad

Update 8/10/2011: I have an updated version of this chicken salad and you can find the full recipe here: The BEST Mayo-Free Chicken Salad.  There are also TWO gluten-free, egg-free and soy-free mayos on the market, Soy-Free Veganaise and one by Earth Balance, called Mindful Mayo I’ve been having some trouble in the egg-free, soy-free […]

Soothing Lettuce Wraps, P.F. Chang’s Style (gluten-free, corn-free, dairy-free, egg-free and soy-free)

PF Changs Style Gluten Free Lettuce Wraps

  Has anyone been to P.F. Chang’s yet to try their new gluten-free menu?  I haven’t been yet, it’s a little tough during the school week but will be going soon! Sam and I are going to have a mommy/son “date” on Friday (no school) and go to P.F. Chang’s for lunch (then to see […]

Gluten-Free Eggplant Parmesan

Gluten-Free Eggplant Parmesan

I found a great recipe the other day for Eggplant Parmesan so I thought I would share it.  Before going gluten-free, I always liked the Eggplant Parmesan at the Olive Garden, thinly sliced and crispy, topped with marinara, shredded mozzarella and fresh grated Parmesan… yummy. I don’t know about you, but I have never had […]

Gluten-Free “Boxed” Mac and Cheese

gluten-free-boxed-mac-and-cheese

Okay, so it’s not really “Boxed” Mac and Cheese but “Bagged” Mac and Cheese just sounds weird! I have been making my own “Kraft-like” GF Mac and Cheese for a long time now, mostly because I do not care for the texture of the pasta in the GF store-bought Mac and Cheese.  The other two […]
