Good-for-you Creamy Curry

Coleslaw with an asian twist

Coleslaw with an asian twist

Pomegranate and Quinoa salad

This is a no-measure salad, but for the benefit of those who like a little guidance, I’ve put approximates in. It’s oil free, gluten free, dairy free. It serves as a great base, and can be added to easily. It is now eaten at least one day per week in […]

Spiced Quinoa

Spiced Quinoa

Our family is making a drastic change to our diet. We are eliminating wheat, dairy, and all heavily processed items and synthetic products – including sugar. So, time to embrace other grains, and I’m starting with the king – quinoa. This is super-duper health food, and has too many benefits […]

Carrot Cookies

Carrot Cookies

Still on a low sugar diet for the kiddies. The date cakes were such a success yesterday (all gone in 24 hours), I thought I might do a twist on the carrot cake. So here we go – carrot cookies, or “Carrotees” as they are called now. Ingredients: 1/2 cup […]
