Greek Rice Salad

I love a salad you can make a meal out of, and this rice salad will appeal to both vegetarians and meat-eaters. It’s simple, as things should be in August. Just the crisp, tangy ingredients of a Greek salad combined with cold, cooked rice. If you want extra protein, grilled salmon or chicken are flavorful additions. I had this salad three times over the course of the weekend: once with warmed pita bread for lunch, another time with grilled boneless […]

Almond Mocha Macaroon

This recipe should carry a warning label: if you love coconut, this is the best macaroon cookie, completely, utterly addictive, and gluten-free.

For that, you’ll have […]

Hot breakfast cereals are back, and when you find a recipe that can be made days ahead of time and kept in the fridge to be microwaved as needed, it’s a keeper.

Don’t be afraid to mix it […]

Gluten Free Chocolate Drop Cookie Kebabs

This kids’ dessert is fun, healthy, and easy. The gluten-free little chocolate drops are my all-time favorite cookie, and so I never make them. (No self control around these things, but I make an exception to share this recipe with you!) It’s my mom’s recipe, though we never knew anything about ‘gluten free’ when I was a kid, we just liked the soft chocolate taste and texture.  And this is not just a kids’ cookie; they’re great with an afternoon […]
