Eat, Drink, Be Merry with Udi’s Gluten-Free (And Me!)

Christmas is two weeks from today (panic panic panic), but whatever winter holiday you celebrate, now is typically a time for friends, family, eating, drinking, and general merriment! For those with celiac disease, gluten-intolerance, or really any sort of restrictive diet, this happy season can also be accompanied by anxiety, discomfort, and feelings of missing […]

Spaghetti (Squash) & (Black Bean) “Meatballs”

One of my favorite ways to come up with a new recipe is to take a classic dish and transform it into a healthy, gluten-free, vegetarian meal that doesn’t lose any of the deliciousness. And what’s more classic than Spaghetti & Meatballs? (Let’s all just take a moment to get the giggles out of our […]

Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Pecans

These pecans are amazing. One of the best parts of the holidays is having a bowl of these on hand at all times. I got this recipe from my mom, because I just had to learn to make them at home! This past Christmas, and the one before that, I made several batches of these […]

Quinoa Aglio Olio (vegan)

This dish was a recipe of my own creation, and it combines food from three different cultures! I try to do this every once in a while, by throwing Italian ingredients in a quesadilla or taco, or by using Asian seasonings in a Middle Eastern dish, but I think this one might be my favorite […]

Rainbow Quinoa

I am so excited to share this recipe, because I not only made quinoa for the first time, but I completely made up the recipe!

Spinach and Black Bean Quesadilla

I’m a quesadilla nut. I’m not sure why but something about the crispy tortilla and melty cheesy goodness just makes me drool…to the point where I used to make quesadillas for breakfast…and lunch…and dinner. Thankfully I’m out of that phase, but quesadillas are still a go-to quickie meal for me. The spinach and black beans […]

Childhood Lunch Remix

I have fond memories of eating grilled cheese as a child, and it’s one food that I’ve never gotten sick of and probably never will. As an “adult” I’ve revamped the grilled cheese to be even more delicious. Because I made this for lunch in the middle of the week I did not pair it […]
