Recipes – Gluten-Free

Pumpkin Spiced Hummus

The first time Joe took a bit of hummus, he proudly exclaimed, “I love this humpus!” Yes, humpus. We laughed so hard that the name stuck. So if you come over and I put out a tray of veggies and humpus, please make sure to refer to it accordingly. For October entertaining, I love to put a pumpkin spin on anything I can. This pumpkin spiced hummus humpus has a hint…

Quick Pickled Carrots with Garlic and Dill

This week I bought the GIANT bag of carrots at Costco and brought them home only to remember that we didn’t bring our BlendTec to Montana. Hmm, what to do with all the carrots? Then I remembered making garlicky pickled carrots a few years ago and instantly had a craving for them. I whipped these up in about 10 minutes, stuck them in the refrigerator, and came back 24 hours…

5 Ideas for a Gluten-Free Breakfast Makeover

As a dietitian with celiac disease, May is one of my favorite months.

The Mini Frittata

I love making frittatas. A little too much apparently, because my family seems to be tired of them. So I started making mini frittatas, just for me. I eat two slices and save two slices for the next day. Perfect! Just like regular frittatas, you can make this any way you like with whatever you have on hand. This one is dairy-free, but you could always add cheese if you…

Last week I promised you the recipe for simple fish tacos Leila requested on her birthday. I make these all the time, and the kids go crazy for them. I think part of the reason is because the fish, while delicious, is also mild in flavor (and not “fishy” at all). The other reason is because Joe and Leila love any kind of meal they get to “dress up” with…

Arugula Bean Dip

Yesterday we celebrated Leila’s 5th birthday with fish tacos and strawberry vanilla cake. She loved the fish tacos, but she may have been even more excited about the cake. It turned out even better than I remembered, and I may have had another piece for breakfast this morning. You can find the recipe for the cake here, and I’ll be posting the fish taco recipe next week. While I was…

Quinoa with Beets and Goat Cheese

Spring Training is over, shorts season is here, and I am not 20 years old anymore. Therefore, it’s time to start working out again. I don’t have much of a plan except to do something every day. Whether it’s a DVD, a jog around the neighborhood or quick circuit in the living room, I am going to do something. Because something is always better than nothing. And I was getting…
