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…

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…

4-Ingredient Brownies

I’m so excited to share this recipe! It might sound weird at first, but I promise it’s one of the greatest healthy substitutions that I’ve ever found. When a friend shared their version of this recipe with me, I was skeptical. How can pumpkin taste good in a brownie? I know it’s not a popular…

How to Create a Gluten Free Cheese Platter

No-Bake Breakfast Bites

I’ve seen these be called by several different names, my favorite of which is “Breakfast Balls” (for obvious comedic reasons). But then I giggled every time I said balls so I had to change the name. I make these all the time because they are perfect for a quick grab’n’go breakfast on busy mornings, and…

Apple “Cookies”

Sweets will be my doom. I am so good all day: yogurt for breakfast, salad for lunch, baked chicken dish for dinner…and then those late night sugar cravings come calling, and all my hard work is ruined. I have a difficult time avoiding sweets. That is why being gluten intolerant is actually a bit nice…
