Dirty Rice Recipe {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Budget Friendly!}

Dirty Rice Recipe {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Budget-Friendly!}

My family loves spicy food and since I decided to start cutting out some gluten and dairy to deal with some health issues I am experiencing, I am on the hunt to find some large family pleasing recipes that everyone is going to enjoy. Do you ever find that healthy cooking sometimes costs more money? I hate that. We live in a rural area so all the gluten free flours, special oils, etc. always cost more than my regular grocery bill. Mind you, we eat clean. I just prefer to cook with regular real ingredients instead of all the specialty items that are surprisingly difficult to find in a small town.

Banana Nut Bread: a No-Stress, Large Family Recipe

Banana Nut Bread: No Stress, Large Family Recipe

I have followed various recipes over the years. I can tell you a few things about making banana nut bread based on others’ recipes that annoy me. Do you have the same pet peeves as me? I can’t stand using loaf pans. Other recipes either seem to make too much where it overflows my loaf pan, or I can never seem to find the magical time vs. temperature ratio so that … Read more

Sriracha Salmon Cakes

Sriracha Salmon Cakes

My husband discovered sriracha a few months ago and he wants it on everything. It is the new favorite condiment in our household.  We put it on our sandwiches and wraps, our eggs in the morning, and our potato fries at night.  We did not realize what a viral sensation sriracha was until we saw a documentary about it on Netflix.  I guess we were caught up in a world-wide fad and did not even know it! This recipe below for Sriracha Salmon Cakes has a nice spicy kick from the sriracha but also a healthy omega-3 punch from the salmon and chia seeds mixed in – I love chia seeds, don’t you? A More Natural Take on a Popular Hot … Read more

Beef & Quinoa Cheesy Stuffed Peppers Recipe

I LOVE stuffed peppers. My husband is more the take it or leave it kind of guy, but my kids go crazy for them as much as I do. They each want a whole pepper all to themselves.

It makes clean up so easy to do one-pot meals doesn’t it? This take on the classic stuffed peppers dish is now a new family favorite … Read more
