Week 5: Recipes

I had several recipes this past week that ended up being successes, so here they are; I hope you enjoy them as much as we did! *** Roasted Vegetables over Buckwheat (Inspired by a recipe in the Great Vegetarian Cookbook) 1 acorn squash, peeled, seeded and cut into bit-sized pieces 1 lb small new potatoes, halved […]

Week 5: Welcome to February!

Week 5 has come and gone, so it’s time for a recap. I’m going to keep it short this week because it was a pretty uneventful week, and because I have some recipes that I really like from week 5 that I’m  itching to write up and share in a separate post! Last week I […]

Simple Food: Week 3

I could not be more excited to talk about how things went during week 3 of my Simple Food project! This week was completely nuts for me. Not busy like the previous week was when I was running my oldest daughter to rehearsals every night and spending my weekend wrapping brownies and trying to schedule […]

Simple Food: Week 2 Recipes

Benefits of Simple Food

2016: The Year of Simple Food

When I was first diagnosed with Celiac disease, my aunt bought me a really fantastic book called “Gluten-Free Girl”, written by Shauna James Ahern back in 2007, the year I was diagnosed. I am incredibly grateful that this was the first book about celiac disease that I read, because it cast this huge diagnosis in […]
