Healthy Bruschetta Dip Appetizer

What I’m looking for and what I’m really craving is just appetizers and snacks that are fresh and easy to make and more importantly, healthy!  If I really was honest with myself, I would tell you that I much prefer grazing on a variety of healthy snacks versus having just a big meal. What is really awesome too is making a batch of stuff in the beginning of the week and snacking on it all week. Some foods like this Read More >>

Marinated Steak And Veggie Wraps

You’re going to love these braised steak wraps. The beef is marinated in an Asian inspired sauce that really gives such a delicious zing. Its a very fresh and fun lunch, dinner or appetizer option.

Asian Pear Salad

Apples are abundant in the state of Washington.  We are fortunate and can have a sense of pride here because apples are such a nutritional powerhouse.  They are so versatile too. You can enjoy apples a million different ways and they always hit the spot, don’t they?  I love how many different kinds of apples there are. Today though, I want to mention a fruit that resembles an apple in flavor (the guts, not the skin) that is now grown Read More >>

Gluten Free Vanilla Coconut Pancakes

Sometimes, you just want breakfast, for dinner. It happens. I do think breakfast foods, like eggs, fluffy pancakes and some salty breakfast meat can really hit the spot sometimes. My version of comfort food looks something like this.  I’ve wondered why these foods are traditionally eaten in the morning, in America.  Tonight, I went all out and even made the pancakes from scratch because I’ve wanted to try a new flour. The selection I chose tonight was coconut flour. Yep!  Read More >>

Easy Homemade Veggie Marinara

One of the challenges of cooking for people is finding options for those who are picky or others who have just a small amount of foods they can eat or will eat. Sometimes there are reasons why some people cannot eat certain foods such as foods that are spicy or extra acidic or some highly sugary fruit. Its easy too for people to feign an allergy to broccoli or tomatoes. I do my best to serve a balance of diverse foods and familiar foods. I place a great Read More >>

Coconut And Broccoli Salad

Oh Broccoli! You’re one of a kind.  Broccoli is such a dramatic food. It’s versatile too. You can see broccoli as a main ingredient like the recipe today or broccoli can take a backseat to be just a component in your meal. Either way, it’s a very delicious choice because of all of its amazing properties. I love to introduce fresh broccoli to toddlers by steaming it to get them used to the flavor. It has so many good vitamins. I often like to Read More >>
