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

Japchae with Vegetables

I made this last week and forgot to upload it. It’s Japchae and it’s a Korean noodle dish made with translucent noodles made of sweet potato starch.

They turned out really great and were much less oily too. I added Dukkah seasoning, which was recommended in my Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans … Continue reading

Gallo Pinto

When we vacationed in Costa Rica this past August, they served Gallo Pinto with every breakfast and it was a staple on every buffet. It was so good, we had it for more than breakfast and needless to say, it is so good, I gained a few lbs. Oops! And of course in the morning … Continue reading
