What says summer better than a light and fresh lemon vinaigrette salad?  One with blueberries it…YUM!!  The vinaigrette is easy to prepare ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to put your salad together.  Just pour over the top and toss.  This would also be delicious with dried cranberries in place of the blueberries […]

Mexican Quinoa with Roasted Vegetables

Let me begin by saying, zucchini and carrots are not typically “Mexican-style” veggies, but they taste delicious in this dish!  In other words, there are no rules.  Add whatever floats your boat.  Zucchini is abundant this time of year, so why not?  I had a ton of carrots in my fridge, so why not?  You get […]

Easy Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Cookies

As you may have noticed, these carrot cake cookies are gluten-free but not grain-free.  Normally all my recipes are both but I decided to add some gluten-free oatmeal for a little extra texture.  Therefore, they are technically not grain-free but could easily be converted by omitting the oats and adding additional almond  flour.  I honestly didn’t […]

Beef Liver with Apples and Onions

    Forgive me for loving liver so much!  I know not everyone is a fan but my hope is that I will convert one person at a time.  For this recipe, the apples add that touch of sweetness that some may need to break through that “I don’t like liver” mentality.  And well, onions and […]
