  • NOT YOUR EVERY DAY HAMBURGER HELPERNOT YOUR EVERY DAY HAMBURGER HELPER
    Well....when this recipe first began, I certainly did not expect this dish.  No, absolutely not.  It all started with the beginning of a simple Marinara Sauce.  Then work intervened.  The Marinara went into the fridge. Then began the lean ground beef and cheese mixture...still not sure where this was going to go.  Then the now forgotten ...
  • THAI BEEF CURRYTHAI BEEF CURRY
    This was a dish that was inspired by Jamie's Meals In Minutes.  Jamie's dish was made with chicken which would be wonderful here.  I took a few hints from his recipe and came up with my own. Now as much as I love Jamie -  and yes I so do, he uses very hot peppers.  ...
  • ALMOND HERB PARMESAN CHICKEN - GF
    I have been trying different ways to use Kefir milk....this one is a winner.  I have marinated chicken in non-dairy milk with vinegar before and it was delicious.  Kefir milk takes this to a whole new level.  If you have Kefir milk - give it a try, you won't be disappointed!  This recipe is also ...
  • CAESAR STEAK SANDWICHCAESAR STEAK SANDWICH

  • GLUTEN FREE THAI CURRY MARINATED PORK TENDERLOINGLUTEN FREE THAI CURRY MARINATED PORK TENDERLOIN
    This was one juicy, flavorful Pork Tenderloin.  Although, I was pretty sure it would turn into a hardened piece of leather!  My oven DIED!  Dang!  It has always been a finicky oven - it always seemed to fluctuate in temperature, never being consistent.  Well tonight, it finally died it's slow death. Normally, a 1 lb. pork ...

    This is one of those salads that is great for a pot luck, or served for lunch or dinner or as a side dish.  A hearty vegetarian dish that is fresh and delicious too.  Originally I was going to make a vegetarian lettuce wrap, but ended up putting it all together - so good.  I ...
  • PARMIGIANO REGIANO PASTA WITH ITALIAN SAUSAGEPARMIGIANO REGIANO PASTA WITH ITALIAN SAUSAGE
    This was a good way to use Italian Sausages.  And what is not to love about Parmigiano Regiano Cheese.  I may have mentioned in previous posts, we have a lovely market that sells delicious Gluten Free Sausages, of all kinds.  What I did do, was to remove the meat from the casings.  A nice change ...

    Yes, I know, another chicken dish.  I seem to have once again accumulated a number of chicken recipes - so you may see some extra chicken dishes to come.  I guess, because chicken lends itself incredibly well to so many different seasonings and spices.

  • BAKED CHICKEN TAQUITTOS WITH CREAMY SALASA SAUCEBAKED CHICKEN TAQUITTOS WITH CREAMY SALASA SAUCE
    Years ago we used to go to this Mexican restaurant that served fabulous Chicken Taquitos.  After a time, I started getting sick.  It was not from cross contamination, thankfully, but it was from Industrialized chicken.   As a result, we have not had Chicken Taquitos for a long time now.  And, I no longer eat chicken ...
