Mediterranean Quinoa & Brown Rice Skillet

The end of the school year is fast approaching and with summer comes lots and lots of activities. There are concerts to hear, picnics to attend, class parties to celebrate and so on. Needless to say, with four kids our calendar is pretty full. As busy as we are, dinner often needs to be served in a hurry and on those nights I turn to Hodgson Mill Quinoa & Brown Rice mixes to pull together a healthy, nutritious meal in minutes.  Read More »


Quinoa & Brown Rice Halloumi Bowl & #Giveaway

This simple 5-ingredient bowl is amazingly quick, but it is so much more than the sum of its parts. Fresh peppery arugula leaves, tender grains of quinoa and brown rice with Mediterranean herbs and spices, rich morsels of halloumi and intensely zingy, pan-fried balsamic tomatoes make each bite a fresh revelation of taste and texture.  Read More »


Gluten Free Mini Carrot Cakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Glaze

Carrot cake is a welcome dessert any time of year, but it seems particularly fitting to serve on Easter. Maybe it’s the whole bunny/carrot thing, but our family get- together isn’t complete without a carrot cake on Easter Sunday.  Read More »


Southwest Chicken Quinoa & Brown Rice

I have a new favorite one-dish dinner – Southwest Chicken Quinoa & Brown Rice. It’s quick to fix, tastes great and is filled with healthy, good-for-you ingredients, like quinoa, brown rice, tomatoes, black beans and chicken. Top the whole thing off with some melted cheddar cheese and sliced green onions and dinner doesn’t get much better. Read More »


Gluten Free Irish Fritters

I am so ready for spring, I could just scream. We’ve finally made it through February, and the official first day of spring is *so close*, but I just know it’s going to look like winter for another month– except for the occasional brave crocus or daffodil. I’ve taken to buying myself flowers every week to brighten up the place. Read More »


Gluten Free Penne with Pancetta and Asparagus in Vodka Sauce

You can tell spring is on the way when bright green asparagus starts appearing in the produce section of the grocery store. Asparagus is generally available year round, but spring asparagus is crisper, grown stateside and is more of a spring green than the wintertime variety. Some of my favorite spring pasta dishes use asparagus . . .  Read More »


Gluten Free Baked Beignets with Café au Lait Glaze

Beignets are delicious donuts popular in New Orleans. This recipe takes all their good qualities—sweet, tasty, tender, and great with coffee—but leaves out messy deep frying and mountains of powdered sugar. A few years back, I visited New Orleans for the first time. I went with a friend, and we made a pact– we wouldn’t waste time or money buying souvenirs. We would just spend our money on the best food we could find. Let me tell you, that was the best decision EVER made.  Read More »


Gluten Free Beef, Basil & Goat Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups

When the weather is cold, baked pasta tops my list of comfort foods. Nothing warms you up on a chilly night like a big helping of piping hot pasta baked in a delicious tomato sauce and covered with melted cheese. With that in mind (and below freezing temperatures), I decided to fix Gluten Free Beef, Basil & Goat Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups for dinner. This dish has everything I was looking for; noodles wrapped in a savory beef, basil and goat cheese filling that are topped with a flavorful tomato sauce and covered in gooey mozzarella cheese.  Read More »


Gluten Free German Chocolate Whoopie Pies

I didn’t try German chocolate cake until I was in my teens. Isn't that crazy? As a kid, I thought of it as “grown up cake” (whatever that means) because of the Coconut-Pecan frosting. See, I was convinced I hated coconut, and I wasn’t crazy about nuts in baked goods, and the combination of those two textures in a thick caramel frosting was too much for my poor little brain to handle. Fortunately, I slowly acquired a taste for different flavors and textures (including coconut and pecans) and after trying it again over the years, it has climbed the ranks and become one of my favorites. Read More »
