10 Minute Peanut Butter Fudge

I rarely try recipes I see posted in GIFs on Facebook or Twitter. Not that I’m above them, but 9 out of 10 times they simply don’t come out as expected. But I came across this little gem on my timeline yesterday, and thought it looked easy enough, and cheap enough, to try. Within 10…

Chicken Stew, kind of

image1-223x300

One of the greatest things I took away from my stint in western North Carolina was an affinity for a proper chicken stew. And, of course, being from the south I couldn’t imagine a chicken stew without dumplings or pastry. So, to honor both sides of my taste buds I’ve created a hybrid stew- it’s…

Healthier Potato Skins

When my husband is lucky enough to get a day off I go overboard in the kitchen. After all, the fastest way to a mans heart is through his stomach, right?! So today I’ve been cooking non-stop. And not just for my husband, but for you too. I’ve had several recipes “on the back burner”…

Gluten Free Banana, Flax and Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Giving up pancakes was one of the hardest parts of going gluten free. I, admittedly, ate them weekly…sometimes daily. Topped with syrup, jam, whipped cream, butter, or Nutella there really wasn’t any particular method I didn’t like. And I’ll be honest, there isn’t a pre-packaged gluten free mix on the market that compares to a…

Going GF at Aldi and Menu Planning

Inspired by fellow blogger Ash over at love{dot}lulu I’ve decide this would be the week I began meal planning. Most days I’m a fly by the seat of my pants kind of cook. I take a peek in the fridge, the pantry, and the freezer and create a plan based on what I have, and what I…

Quick Gluten Free Granola

I’ve been buying gluten free granola at the not-so-cheap price of $6.99/lb. for over a year now. And then suddenly, after running out yesterday morning, it dawned on me- MAKE YOU’RE OWN! Seriously, Jane. Get it together! I had oats, dried fruit, nuts, and a plethora of additives, so off to the mixing bowl and…

TIPS & TRICKS: Pasta

IMAG0355-1

Prior to going gluten free pasta was a HUGE part of our diet. It was quick, inexpensive, and versatile. But since we made the switch to a wheat free lifestyle finding a quality, delicious, and inexpensive brand of pasta has been nothing short of exhausting. There was the brand that tasted like popcorn, the brand…

Oatmeal, Flax & Cocoa No-Bake Cookies

Nothing brings back sweet memories of my mom in the kitchen more than Oatmeal No-bake Cookies. They were, after all, the only sweet she could successfully “cook”. lol (Hi Mom!) So it should come as no surprise that they’re a big hit in our home too. But you know I couldn’t just make any ‘ol…

Shrimp and Grits

It’s kind of a prerequisite- If you’re from the south you MUST love grits. When cooked properly they’re creamy, smooth, and O SO GOOD! Now I know I’ve given you an awesome grits recipe before. You can check it out HERE. But this is different. This is a dinner recipe. Yes, grits for dinner. But…
