There are so many different variations […]

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 […]

Shrimp Egg Roll in a Bowl

Today is Ash Wednesday so when I was deciding what to make for dinner the night before, I had pulled out a bag of frozen shrimp that I had stocked up on.  I was originally thinking a shrimp jambalaya but was a little short on time.  I also had a bag of broccoli slaw that needed to be used […]

Grain-Free “Monster” Cookies

I’m sure most of you have heard of monster cookies…chocolate chips, M&M’s, peanut butter chips and oats.  This recipe is my healthier version of monster cookies that are grain-free and loaded with dark chocolate chips, walnuts, shredded coconut and cranberries  for a little extra sweetness.  What I love about these cookies is that they are crispy around the […]

Slow Cooker Lamb Stew

Stew is one of those comfort meals that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.  I have very vivid memories of my Mom making it in a pressure cooker.  For my version of stew, I used a lamb stew meat but you could just as well use beef.  Also, I decided to add a browning step and I […]
