A family breakfast favorite! One of my family's favorite weekend traditions is to wake up and have Swedish Pancakes. Once upon a time, before children, my husband and I stayed at a sweet bed and breakfast in the PNW (Pacific Northwest) called Alice Bay Bed and Breakfast: http://www.alicebay.com in the Washington Skagit Valley. They served the most amazing breakfast which convinced me to buy the cookbook. I have been dreaming about the Swedish Pancakes in this cookbook ever
I woke up this morning to rain, which is a rare event around here lately. A very nostalgic feeling came over me after many years of living in the Pacific Northwest and that's what inspired tonight's family dinner- Salmon, Potato and Corn Chowder. Gluten-free, kid-friendly, adult-friendly, healthy, affordable, includes all-the-food groups meal (that's what makes a meal nutritious in my opinion). I think I checked all required boxes! You could easily leave out the bacon or
So, it's Saturday night and the question was, should we go out or eat at home? While I love restaurants, I don't always enjoy the big price tag that goes along with it. It was also one of the most beautiful nights outside-80 degrees, sunshine and warm air means we get to set outside in our beautiful Colorado environment. What did we have? One of my favorite easy meals: Cedar Plank Salmon with Grilled Lemons Roasted Blue, White, and Red Potatoes Roasted Carrots Yogurt Chive
So, I'm six months into eating gluten free. I've had some good cookies out at bakeries that are gluten free. I've made a couple of bad recipes at home. Finally, I have a great....no, unbelievably great recipe for gluten free chocolate chip cookies. My kids don't know the difference and I feel like I get to have something that's maybe even better than what I'm used to (and that's saying a lot considering my milk-your-own-cow-make-your-own-butter upbringing). They are cris
About four years ago I started making yogurt for the family, because of a couple of reasons. First, there is so much sugar in most yogurts! Take a look at the labels if you don't believe me. Second, the cost. At the rate I was consuming, yogurt was becoming a $100 a month investment. Don't believe me? Start adding it up! So...I bought this great little yogurt contraption and haven't stopped since. Here's what you do: Measure 5 cups of milk (I use organic 2%, but you c
I wanted to start my first blog off with a picture of what I just made for my family at my table. My son's favorite, Swedish meatballs adapted from an America's Test Kitchen Recipe (made gluten-free so we can all eat it). It has been his favorite since about three years old (he's almost nine now). Some of you may be looking at this and thinking....she's a registered dietitian and she's blogging about meatballs in a cream sauce? Yes, that's correct. And this is why I wan
