It’s time for the weekly menu again with lots of tasty gluten free and dairy free recipes!  We are trying two new recipes this week – a new seasonal salad (of course) and a Persian dish called Loobia/Lubia Polo (green bean rice).  I’ve tried to make it before but this...

Hi everyone!  Time for the weekly menu + recipes.  Talk about “healthified” comfort food – this week’s menu plan is definitely going to be decadent but surprisingly easy!  October is such a crazy month – football is in full swing and the weather is almost perfect.  I love cooking soups,...

Hi all!  Aren’t the weeks just flying by!  I really love this time of year – the cooler weather (well at least it is supposed to be cooler), football, warm soups and stews… So of course, it’s time again for another weekly menu to get through it all with peace...
