Breakfast Outside The Box

My daughter wanted to eat a donut that someone had given her for breakfast and we both wanted Eden to have something equally […]

Tomato Panzanella Salad

Leftovers would be perfect for anyone to eat on “Meatless Monday.” My children are crazy for croutons so learning to cook them is a useful skill for many recipes. And cherry tomatoes are sweet right now, as opposed to long awaited summer tomatoes. Since we don’t need […]

bacon and corn griddle cakes

I found these pancakes on (just click on that link) and…wow. While they have a standard pancake base which includes egg and milk the photo alone has empowered me to believe that I can begin with our milk free base and go from there. From there recipe girl adds cayenne, corn, cheese, scallion and of course bacon. […]

NYC Rainbow Italian Ice

At some point during our unusually warm spring here in NYC an Italian Ice Vendor showed up in front of my children’s school.

Gluten-Free Bread

This is my gluten-free bread – the recipe is available here: This also includes a short essay about transforming my love of bread baking when I started eating gluten-free. I always loved to bake bread, and this is the standby recipe/formula that I now use. It tastes a little different every week because I always change up the flours – the trick […]

Stuffed Bell Peppers

These are stuffed bell peppers made without dairy, eggs, or nuts. You can even make them vegan. We love these in our family because you can add a variety of veggies, beans, rice, and/or meats, and they taste great baked inside a giant bellpepper. These are easy to accomodate any allergy since you can put whatever you want in them.
