Dairy-Free Ricotta

If there’s one thing I miss since being diagnosed with a cow’s milk allergy — it’s ricotta cheese. I found this recipe at Tastes Lovely dot com Sunday and I made a lasagna immediately thereafter. It was delicious! With the leftover ricotta we had open-faced ricotta sandwiches drizzled with olive oil and salt and pepper … Continue reading

Tempeh Bacon

Hey there! Happy New Year! Hope you are well. I made tempeh bacon the other day and was surprised to find that it was pretty darn good. There are many recipes for this, but most called for liquid smoke. I made a marinade from what I had on hand and hoped it would bake into … Continue reading

Chickpea “tuna” salad

Remember the tuna noodle casserole with crushed potato chips baked on top that our moms made in late 70’s? And you couldn’t go back outside and play until you finished your plate?

I was surprised that they actually ‘snap’ like a cracker when you bite them, but I won’t lie… they are a little … Continue reading

Chicken in the Garden

Well, I’m ashamed to say that it’s been six months since I last posted a recipe here on my food blog. But, I have many reasons! I moved to Florida finally and wowee have I been busy! First, I downsized a four bedroom house with a full basement to get here, then had to downsize … Continue reading

4th of July Recipe Ideas for Your Celebration!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes the foods that come with certain celebrations leave a lot to be, well… celebrated. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good grass-fed, organic burger with all the trimmings like pasta and potato salads but what if you want something other than the usual sides? How about a … Continue reading
