Chipotle Curry Chicken Salad

Chipotle Curry Chicken Salad Just a few simple ingredients can make such a flavorful and easy dinner.   We’ve been making a version of this for years with mayo, curry powder and cayenne pepper added to Granny Smith apples, toasted pecans, celery, dried cranberries and cooked chicken. It’s spicy and sweet and Brett really loves it. Besides prep, the only thing that really takes time...

Summer Salad with Peach Balsamic Vinegar

Summer Salads One of my favorite gifts from my in-laws back in the day, was alot of the most delicious balsamic vinegars and olive oils from Con’ Olio! We made a ton of really great salads when I was into eating alot of kale salads! And lately, I’ve been on the hunt for some really good vinegars again, because all we feel like eating right...

Gluten-Free Texas Peach Cobbler

Texas Peach Cobbler Texas peaches are everywhere during the summer. You can get them at the grocery store. Find them at the farmer’s markets. Or even go and pick them yourselves in Fredericksburg. They are one of my favorite summer fruits. I love all the summer fruits, but the peaches are amazing. One of the hardest and challenging things for me over the years has...

Gluten-Free Cherry Nectarine Crumble

Gluten-Free Cherry Nectarine Crumble I LOVE summer fruit. Especially, stone fruits like cherries, nectarines, peaches, apricots, and plums. The abundance of summer fruit is awesome. But sometimes I can’t eat it all before it starts to really ripen. But that has actually turned into the best part. Because that is when it is perfect for making a fruit crumble or healthy sorghum millet muffins. I’ve...

Apple Cider-Brined Pork Tenderloin

Cider-Brined Pork Tenderloin I’m not gonna lie, this cider-brined pork tenderloin with roasted apples and carrots is ridiculously delicious!  It is truly the best pork tenderloin I’ve ever had.   We all know how well apples go with pork chops, but brining this tenderloin in apple cider takes it to another level.  And leftovers are amazing the next day. Yum!    And tossing the apples and...

Ghormeh Sabzi (Persian Herb Stew) & Basmati Rice

Ghormeh Sabzi is a traditional Persian Herb Stew made with various herbs and veggies, beans, stew beef, and dried sour limes. It is naturally gluten-free and dairy-free. For the Love of Persian Food My mother was Persian and growing up it was a huge treat when she would cook a traditional Iranian dish because she was pretty westernized and preferred not spending too much time...

It has been so nice to indulge in artichoke dip again and this “healthified” version does not disappoint.  Goat Cheese!

Gluten-free Spinach Goat Feta Puff Pastry

Thank you, Schär Having to eat gluten-free (and dairy-free for awhile) usually meant bypassing some of the most delicious treats. And sometimes you just really miss those old comfort food classics. Lately, we have been trying a bunch of Schär gluten-free products and are just blown away. We found this puff pastry dough at Central Market. They also have the best table crackers and artisan...

Cayenne Date Nectar Sautéed Carrots

Trying Something New I was sent a few types of products from D’Vash Organics to try. They sent me a date nectar, date syrup, sweet potato nectar, and this cayenne date nectar. It is gluten-free, vegan, paleo, organic and non-GMO. The only thing that they asked in return was an Instagram story share. Which I did. But I really liked these products so I wanted...
