Asian Inspired Rice Noodle Soup

My best friend Olivia is staying at our apartment for a few weeks while she finishes up her last physical therapy rotation. In celebration of her first weekend here, and our unanimous love for Asian inspired cuisine, I decided to stew up some “pho”. I would consider this pseudo-pho because there are a few elements…

Apple Pie 

I love apple pie. There is nothing more comforting than a warm slice straight from the oven and the scent of apple pie baking in the air is to die for. Lucky for me my roomie, as she always does, failed to eat the gigantic bag of red apples she had bought at the store…

Long work days call for a simple dinner…

We all have those days; you get home from work late, hangry beyond belief and are faced with the decision to whip up something or take the easy way out and scarf down a bowl of cereal (I admit I am guilty of cereal scarfing, especially now that Cheerios are gluten free). Cereal is good…

Red Velvet Cake w/ Cream Cheese Frosting

Part II to my boyfriend’s pre-Valentine’s Day dinner consisted of his other favorite… Red Velvet Cake. I know, Red Velvet Cake is not your typical companion to breakfast for dinner, but he didn’t care and his eyes just about popped out of his head when I surprised him with this cake. He is definitely my…

Turkey and Potato Hash

Breakfast for dinner has been one of my all time favorites ever since I was a kid. If my mom asked me what I wanted for dinner, 99.9% of the time my request would be breakfast for dinner. I have always been and will always be a breakfast lover; luckily my boyfriend loves breakfast just…

Pass the Guac! 

Guacamole has to be one of my favorite dips of all time. I eat it with my eggs in the morning, I like it high on my salads, I slather it on my tacos, heck I even eat it out of the bowl with a spoon. Forget the store bought stuff and whip yourself up…

Bananas Foster French Toast

One of my boyfriend’s favorite breakfast items is french toast. I had made a fresh loaf of gluten free sandwich bread last night (recipe previously posted) and decided that it would make a great french toast for breakfast. But not just any french toast… Bananas Foster French Toast!       Here’s what you’ll need… 4…

Peanut Butter Chickpea Cupcakes w/ Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting  

My roommate and I loooooove chocolate and peanut butter. She absolutely loves my cupcakes so I decided to experiment with chickpeas instead of black beans for my cupcake base and make our favorite flavor combo. It worked! The result was moist, peanut buttery and chocolatey AMAZINGNESS. I adapted them from the recipe I use for…

Crockpot Chana Masala 

During our travels in London my boyfriend and I were exposed to the most wonderful cuisine… Indian cuisine straight from Brick Lane💜💜💜 It is an interesting experience picking out the restaurant in which you want to eat (they haggle with you!); we ended up with a 3 course meal including drinks for about $20 each…

Devil’s Food Cupcakes

Here is part II of Chelsea’s surprise cupcakes. Like the Pina Colada Cupcakes I  had to opt for store bought mix due to time constraints, for these beauties I utilized Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Devil’s Food Cake Mix (prepared as directed on box). This recipe yields a dozen full-sized beauties 💜    I placed the…

Sandwich Bread

My biggest frustration when it comes to living a gluten free lifestyle is the cost, and not to mention quality, of gluten free bread available at my neighborhood grocery store. The loaves are small and quite honestly they have more holes than substance; oh, and they don’t taste that great.  I am proud to announce,…
