Black Rice with Curry Seasonal Vegetables

We had black rice with curried vegetables for dinner tonight. Black rice is a new food for our table. A food everyone embraced with enthusiasm, as they dug into a bowl of black and orange food. Fun food because it's so out of the ordinary to see black rice on their plates. Or should I say Halloween food. It is Halloween week after all, why not have a little fun ...

Halloween Gingerbread Spiced Spider Doughnuts

Looking to make something fun for Halloween? How about creepy crawler spider doughnuts. The kids and I had fun making these creepy crawler spider doughnuts over the weekend — my younger boys helped glaze while I webbed them, then they put a plastic spider on top (found those at Target for two bucks) for the extra creepy effect. Amidst all the messy glaze it was fun to make. And eat. ...

Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Soup for Dinner, Halloween Style

Autumn is upon us, and what’s better than a soup and sandwich, especially when the day is filled with errands and after-school activities. It was hectic, but no rest for the weary, as the question "What's for dinner?" confronts me.  To de-stress (and get a laugh) I spontaneously threw a little fun into dinner with my old Halloween cookie cutters. I had to dig way back under other stuff that I don't ...

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 ...

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 ...
