Poached Salmon in White Wine Tomato Broth

When I first found this recipe on the blog Steele House Kitchen, I was immediately curious. I’ll be honest, this dish is a little strange. I mean, white wine tomato broth? What even is that? The method of crushing poached tomatoes and separating the pulp to leave just the flavorful red broth is not a…

Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Muffins

You may have noticed that these muffins are smaller than what you’re probably used to. That is for two reasons: Everyone knows that the top of the muffin is the best part! With the cinnamon-sugar coating all around, every bite of these little muffins will have that delicious top-of-the-muffin taste. I have no self control…

Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein

I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe! I thought for sure it would be one of those healthy substitute recipes that tastes like a bad knock-off of the original dish, but much to my excitement this one was actually a pretty great alternative to the carb-filled chow mein we’re all used to. And let’s be…

Chipotle Chicken

This recipe began as an attempt to recreate the flavor of the chopped chicken from Chipotle or Qdoba. I spend way too much money on the taco salads from both of these fast food restaurants for a couple of reasons. One is that the food is delicious! I know that Chipotle has had a few…

Egg Drop Soup

One of the best chain restaurants for celiacs and gluten free dieters is PF Chang’s. They have a pretty large gluten free menu that includes most of their classic dishes such as fried rice, chicken lettuce wraps, and of course egg drop soup. They prepare the gluten free food in a different area than everything…

Parmesan Roasted Acorn Squash

“Eat your vegetables” they said. “It will be fun” they said. I don’t think any of us fell for that as kids. One of my earliest memories is choking down a mushy cooked carrot from my bowl of pot roast that my mom made me eat. If I could have had it my way, I…

Roasted Eggplant with Feta and Tomato

I really hope that one of you reading this enjoys eating eggplant. It seems like nobody in my life – or at least nobody that I regularly eat with – likes eggplant. So I made this meal for myself one night when I was alone in the house and there was no one to complain…

Shrimp Ceviche

This is one of those recipes that I find myself making multiple times a week, especially in the summer. I live in Seattle, where 80% of the year we see cool temperatures and cloudy weather. Since we need it so rarely, most buildings don’t have an air conditioning system – my apartment included. So, June…

Green Goddess Dressing/Dip

Lately I’ve realized that approximately 70% of my adult life seems to be spent at the grocery store. It’s crazy how quickly I run out of things, and how often I’m saying “But we just went to the store two days ago! How do we already need to go again?!” One of the most annoying…

Nicoise Salmon Salad

You may have read in my previous post that I had an amazing salad experience a few weeks ago at the Nordstrom Cafe. Don’t worry, this is the last you’ll be hearing of it. 🙂 It was just such a fun surprise to feel so passionately about a salad. I like salad but I don’t love it, which…
