Most often for lunch I grab some random leftover.  My son had other ideas on Monday so after quickly accessing what was available in the frig, this is what I came up with and according to Jack, it was "The Bomb".  

'Cream' of Cauliflower, Butternut Squash, & Walnut...

I AM a southern girl.  But I did not grow up LIKING greens.  In fact, as a kid, having greens was the quickest way to ruin a perfectly good meal.  

Fast forward to today and I love them.  CRAVE them.  Better yet, my 10 year old loves them.  ♥...

Nothing says love like a hot bowl of Tomato Soup.  

I made the REAL cream version of this soup many times in one of my previous places of employment. It's truly a very easy soup to make - and while this was the first time I altered it to be dairy free, I was really plea...

This was a baking experiment that worked!  Woohoo!  

I cannot always say that.  Baking is a SCIENCE.  It can be quite a challenge making substitutions, especially when working in the gluten free arena.  I am putting in parenthesis the ingredients as per the origina...

This is a favorite of mine.  But then again, I love Kale.  

I didn't always love it though - I think it's important for you to know that.  But an odd thing happened the more I ate it.  Kale is loaded with chlorophyll, which is really good for you, in case you didn'...

Jack LOVES Italian Wedding Soup.  If you cannot tell already, we love soup, in general.  With that said, I was getting a little burned out so was very happy to come up with this yesterday.  Jack was really impressed when he found out it was the first time I had ever ma...

Every weekend my son asks for the same thing:  a 'special' breakfast.  If you're a SWEET lover and have gone gluten free, you know this can be a PITA (Pain In The Ass) request.   Thankfully, with a few exceptions, I prefer a savory breakfast to a sweet one....

This was a really tasty twist on an old standard.  I was browsing epicurious.com when I came across the recipe, but, I switched it up a little bit from their version.  What can I say - theirs didn't include onions.  Cabbage and onions go hand-in-hand to me....

This is another of my one dish meals - which always makes me happy.

I enjoyed our dinner tonight, but I don't know that for me, it will be a keeper.  What a great salesperson I am, eh?  It was good.  It had really soft, well-blended flavors.  I generally like a bit more...

Yes, I'm still in warm soup mode, I am very much looking forward to some chilled summer soups.  My son has been nagging me for Gazpacho all winter.  

I opted for a lighter vegetarian Lentil Soup.  Not only was it tasty, easy to cook, but relatively inexpensive...
