Orange Ginger Salmon

Tonight’s culinary experiment involved baking fish in a tiny RV stove. I think I accomplished the challenge with little problems with this fantastic Orange Ginger Salmon.  Over the past few weeks, I’ve been off my cooking routine simply because we’ve been trying to get moved from a larger house to a tiny RV. Full time …

Carnitas & Haricot Verts

This is one of my most favorite meals and it’s all because of fat and flavor. I make a big pan of my favorite pork carnitas and each time, I find more ways to use them. I was late coming home last night and needed something quick. I already had the carnitas in the fridge. …

Stuffed Jalapeño Dip

One of the best tailgating recipes I make is my stuffed jalapeños. These are extremely good but they take a lot of prep time. Scraping the jalapeño peppers, cooking the sausage stuffing, stuffing the peppers and then wrapping in bacon are steps that cannot be left out. I love these for fall Football games. The …

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

I love anything described as red velvet. Red velvet cakes are as Southern as sweet tea and magnolias. I use an old family recipe for a traditional red velvet so I thought these cookies might have half a chance of success if I went with tradition. My last attempt at backing cookies was GREAT! I …

Frosted Ginger Cookies

Let’s bake some cookies! Last year, I learned that I’m terrible at cookies. I don’t bake much during the spring and summer, but I love fall and winter baking. I love baking bars, cakes, candy, pies. I have never tried many cookies until last year and it was colossal flop. So I’m trying again this …

Gluten Free Seven Layer Bars

I love making Seven Layer Bars because they are EASY! The hardest step is melting butter. I’m serious about this one. The other layers are in bags and cans and are easily opened. I first made these a few years ago before I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. It’s been a few years since then …

Thankful for mac and cheese

For the upcoming Thanksgiving day meal, all the conversations between the inlaws and outlaws centered around what everybody would bring. I jumped in front of the conversation and declared I would bring Mac n’ Cheese and I was not going to budge on that. And I was going to make it gluten-free and people were …

Lemon Chicken with Olives

We are in the middle of another spring cold snap and I took advantage of the weather to use my oven again. I limit the oven use in the hottest parts of the summer and try to utilize mostly stove-top cooking or slow cookers. I was actually thinking of making some lemon chicken soup but …

Strawberry Mousse Recipe

  The strawberries have arrived! These beauties are the first crops of our spring farmer’s markets and I have seen a big harvest in our area markets. Some years, the strawberries do not make a great first showing. This year looks to be a great crop of strawberries. Naturally, I had to bring home a …

Sausage and green bean skillet

We had yet ANOTHER delay at school today. This time, for extreme cold. One of these days, I’m going to get my snow in the winter. We’ve had “not cold enough” and “not enough moisture” so I’m hoping for a great combo of both to make snow. Until then..I’m still eating leftovers out of the …

Mushroom Frittata Cooking Light

Breakfast for dinner is one of my favorite meals. With the New Year healthy cooking spree I’ve been on, I’ve been eating several variations of the classic frittata. I love frittatas because I can use a wide variety of ingredients and put the pan under a broiler. It doesn’t get much easier! No tossing or …

Fennel and Sausage Stir Fry

I love quick dinners. What that really means is I love quick dinners that I can make in one pan or pot and spend more time photgraphing than actually cooking. This was one of those nights. The Thanksgiving travel and dinners are over and we both want to eat lighter and leaner this week. I …

Thai Red Curry

This is a big bowl of comfort food and it did not take long at all to make it. I started with this recipe from Sarah Fragoso’s Everyday Paleo Thai Cuisine which is an unbelievably authentic book with recipes she perfected while traveling around Thailand. I then tweaked it a bit because I wanted a …

Cottage Pie

Down here, when the temperatures dip below 90*, we think fall sweaters and hot cocoa are just around the corner so it must be time to turn the ovens back on. During the humidity of June-August, I rarely turn on the oven. But I have missed hot roasted meals and vegetables. I’m also enjoying as …
