Sauteed Mexican Spiced Kale (GF, V, DF, W30, Vegan)

It has a lot of nutritional benefits. Here are some of the vitamins and minerals that kale… Continue reading Sauteed Mexican Spiced Kale (GF, V, DF, W30, Vegan)

Pressure Cooker Rice (GF) – Blog Post #14

One of our favorite side dishes is plain rice with butter and salt. Hubby and the Wee One especially love it.

Potato Casserole – Blog Post #5

I decided to create a new potato casserole for our Sunday dinner.  My mother-in-law told me that she loved it as she scooped up a second helping of the casserole.  So I think it's a winner in my book. I took some elements of my father-in-law's famous creamed potato recipe and put a gluten free… Continue reading Potato Casserole – Blog Post #5

Honey Ginger Carrots

These carrots are made using the same process as my brown sugar carrots.  However, I changed the recipe just a little bit because we were eating an Asian main dish.
