Light Clam Chowder (and Bread SRSLY product giveaway!)

Have you ever gone on a trip somewhere eager to try the food that place is famous for? Only to realize there isn’t anyone making it gluten free, and dairy free (and soy free)? That’s always a bummer, and plain old sucks. We had an experience like this years ago while on a trip to San Francisco, eager to try the clam chowder in a bowl. San Francisco - famous for their clam ...

Sweet Potato Kimchi Hash for brunch…

I haven’t had a potato hash in who knows how long. Maybe because it’s just potato and onion for the most part. When I opened the fridge for some inspiration I noticed a jar of kimchi hiding in the back. Hmm, sweet potato hash with kimchi. It made perfect sense. But first, I needed to go for a run :) On my run all I think about is how good this ...

Butternut Squash and Zucchini Lasagna, hold the marinara

My kids, and husband love lasagna. It brings everyone to the table. Faster than usual. I actually don’t even need to yell “dinner”. They come running in on their own, eagerly awaiting a big square piece of lasagna to dig into. I think it’s on everyone’s comfort food list. The thing is, how do you make it gluten free, dairy free, soy free yet taste great? This recipe (I posted on Foodista ...

Candy Corn Pudding (and free coupon giveaway!)

When October comes around I begin to think about the colors of fall, the vibrant shades of orange, and yellow in nature, and the food that makes the fall season so much fun. (Speaking of fun, I am giving away 2 free coupons! see below …) Apples and pumpkin are some of my favorite fall foods. However, there is one little candy with the orange, yellow, and white trio of color ...

Easy Beef Stew

Hello fall ... with the beginning of the new season I had to make stew, making use of those "what do I make with this?" cuts in my freezer. What is fall with a comforting stew?  For my beef stew recipe I chose three cuts - eye of round, chuck, and shank cross-cut, all moderately priced cuts that go well in stews. I braised the cuts after I cut into cubes ...

Contributed by Jonathan G. Google + Sunday morning I sat up front eager to learn about the mecca of the web's own social media platform: Google +. Funny, because before Dr. Jean Layton began, someone asked why Google + is important, Dr. Layton responded: "well, if the world's greatest search site launches its own social media platform and you're not interested to see what it can do for you, that's foolish." The session ...

Getting the content OUT THERE

By Sunday, September 28, 2014 No tags Permalink 0

Contributed by: Jonathan While at the IFBC conference I got to network with many bloggers, looking for ways to improve their rankings in the Google world of bloggers. To my surprise many of the women I spoke to were more interested in the ranking on search engines, and getting likes on Facebook than a cooking demonstration. We all walked into our SEO (search engine optimization) session, conducted by Moz's product strategist ...
