mexican bowls

This is a per­fect lunch or din­ner with left­over pot roast. In fact, I make a pot roast just for this pur­pose. Inspired from my favorite “fast” food restau­rant, Chipo­tle, this was my once a week treat. Now that night­shades … more




gluten-free at burger lounge!

When you give up gluten, you also give up con­ve­nience. The num­ber of restau­rants at which you can eat tends to shrink dra­mat­i­cally, and you are left hav­ing lengthy con­ver­sa­tions with wait staff. If you live in San Diego or … more




gluten-free swedish meatballs

Find­ing my night­shade intol­er­ance forced me to give up meatballs…at least meat­balls that way I’ve always pre­pared them. In an attempt to find a meat­ball I like, I sud­denly thought…‘Swedish.’ There is pork in here, which I rarely eat, but … more




sloppy gluten-free burgers

With Udi’s ham­burger buns, I am able to give my kids a mouth-watering ham­burger that they love! The buns freeze well, but I use them within a few days of pur­chas­ing. Go wild with top­pings, or stay with the basics … more




fajitas

Liv­ing in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia, I have an appar­ent fond­ness for Mex­i­can and Mexican-inspired food that bor­ders on obses­sive. Cilantro, onions, limes, gar­lic and pep­pers are sta­ples in my kitchen and the fam­ily knows that if they don’t like a par­tic­u­lar … more




rolled tacos

When I want to use up left­over Pot Roast, this is a great, savory snack or din­ner. I don’t like to serve fried food very often, but when the fam­ily craves it, I fig­ure if they’re going to eat it, … more




stuffed bell peppers

I think this dish was a sta­ple in many homes in the 60’s and 70’s. It’s kind of a clas­sic in the ranks of those huge Camp­bell soup-based casseroles my mom would make dur­ing the week. This has been updated … more




roasted short ribs

This is a great week­end meal that you can put in the oven and for­get about. I buy them when­ever they’re on sale because they can be pricey. My kids love these with a gluten-free BBQ sauce. Prep time: 15 min­utes … more




beef pot roast and gravy

Your home will smell great when you come home from work and your din­ner is ready. Save left­overs for the week­end for a big Machaca break­fast. Mix with your favorite BBQ sauce for BBQ Beef Sand­wiches along with Coleslaw or … more




hungarian goulash

My hus­band is 100% Hun­gar­ian and guy­las leves, as they say in Hun­gary, is a hearty stew wor­thy of a long sim­mer to be eaten on a fall or win­ter day. I think every Hun­gar­ian fam­ily has their own recipe, … more




mock enchilada

I hon­estly have no idea who named this, but my broth­ers and sis­ters and I grew up on it. Even though I can’t par­take, I love mak­ing it because the smell brings me back to my mom’s kitchen. Great for … more
