In the spring of my 10th year my sweet Daddy and I drove up the mountain to go trout fishing. He was out of work due to a serious health issue and quite frankly, I thought he was going to die. He didn’t and we went on to have more daddy-daughter excursions, but because of his health issues at the time, and because of my youthful ignorance about them, that outing in particular stands out clear as crystal to me.

One of our favorite quick and easy weeknight meals is this Shortcut Korean Barbecue Beef Bowl. Flavors from basic seasonings commonly used in Asian cuisine pair perfectly with bottled barbecue sauce and rich, grass-fed beef, and there’s even some veggies tossed in!
In about 30 minutes, you can have a big batch of barbecue beef plus rice (or if you’re following a grain-free eating plan, maybe some cauli-rice) on the table. It’s a complete meal in one. All you need are bowls and chopsticks and dinner is done! Continue Reading
That time I looked in the fridge after a particularly intense week of recipe development and before grocery day and found almost nothing. Except that barely used jar of organic pasta sauce and some leftover chicken. There’s almost always cheese in the cheese drawer.
If that doesn’t scream Put It All in the Casserole Dish and Bake It, well, I don’t know what does. Continue Reading
Confession: I’m not such a pasta lover. It’s just not something I ever had a lot growing up and Dreamy’s not a pasta lover, so it never really factored into my meal planning UNTIL we created two pasta-loving kiddos. And even if I don’t eat it so often, I always make the pasta gluten-free because we’re a 100% GF household due to my celiac disease and Ma Petite’s gluten sensitivity. Continue Reading
Everybody loves it and most people who have to go gluten-free for health reasons miss it more than any other foods listed. That’s right… PIZZA!
I love making homemade pizza with my Quick & Simple Gluten-Free Pizza Dough recipe, but not everyone can have yeast, and quite frankly, not everyone wants to roll out a crust. If that’s you, no problem!
Now, making pizza at home is as easy as pouring the crust. That’s right, a gluten-free, yeast-free crust that you pour right on top of your toppings and sauce.
Know what’s even better than that? You do it all in one skillet and it tastes phenomenal. As in, I’ve made this several times even after recipe testing was complete. Repeat meals in our house are extremely rare. Dreamy often says… If you love something Gigi makes, you’d better enjoy it because you may never have it again! Continue Reading
Quinoa flakes are one of my favorite nutritious ingredients to use in recipes. I’m not a fan of the “beady” whole grain quinoa, so the flakes (which are just whole quinoa seeds flattened out) are perfect for me. In dishes like my One Dish Baked Breakfast Quinoa, Savory Quinoa Bake and this Ham & Cheddar Quinoa Bake, the flakes result in a creamy texture finished dish that reminds me of holiday pan dressing.
