As you may know, I’m now a gluten-free vegetarian. So, with our already crazy mix of food issues (meat-eaters, vegetarians and food allergies), I need all the help I can get to put meals on the table. Thanks to the graciousness of gluten-free companies, the transition to gluten-free has been much more pleasant than I […]
It’s been a better month thus far on the new Gluten-Free Vegetarian era at our house. Yes, dinnertime is still sometimes stressful. After all, this is our family line-up now: Mom: Gluten-free vegetarian with hypothyroidism Dad (Mr. Meaty): “Normal” omnivore who isn’t a big fan of vegetarian proteins. Kid 1 (Bug, 4): Basically a pescatarian with […]
Who loves fall? I do! I do! I love fall flavors. Fall is definitely my favorite season and fall flavors are probably my favorite food season. Pumpkin, cauliflower and sweet potatoes! Yum! If you love fall flavors like I do, you may enjoy a few of these fall recipes. You can also enjoy seasonal tomatoes, […]
I’ve tried pretty much unsuccessfully four times now to eat fish or seafood. Mostly salmon and once crab when I was out to dinner with friends and the salmon option was an unappetizing giant grilled filet. So, I’m thinking pescatarianism may not be in the cards for me, in spite of my health issues. I might […]
Chinese Sweet & Sour Cucumbers are a family favorite with sliced fresh cucumber and just the right combination of tart & sweet.
Don’t worry, we didn’t kick the girls, Bug (4) and Goose (3) out of the house. We still have four members to our family. But when I got Kathy Hester’s yummy new cookbook in the mail, Vegan Slow Cooking for Two, I made a realization that I probably should’ve made a long time ago. Cooking for two is kind of awesome when you’re cooking for a blended-eater family. I’m mostly vegetarian (experimenting with pescatarianism due to health issues), my husband Mr. Meaty is an omnivore and our girls are undecided.
Should I Become a Pescatarian? Should I become a pesky pescatarian? I don’t actually believe pescatarians are pesky, I just like the alliteration. I’ve been struggling with some health issues lately. My primary issue is hypothyroidism, but I also suffered a bizarre bout of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. It’s pretty strange, apparently calcium crystals slosh […]

OK, we’ve tried A LOT of macaroni and cheese recipes in this family since improving our food choices and going without the blue box. I mean A LOT of recipes, check out all our Macaroni Recipes for a few examples. Before now, our family favorite was this Easy Cheese Sauce poured over macaroni. Obviously unbaked macaroni […]
For a completely unfortunate reason, our family went on an unplanned month-long vacation this summer. It’s been a rough road for our family recently but all the same it was great for us all to get together, tell stories and share our children’s lives. Among all my immediate cousins we have the following kids’ ages: […]
