Potatoes are a common appetizer in Spain, in small plates known as tapas, often served with garlic aioli sauce or spicy bravas sauce. Potatoes can also be found in a tortilla, a Spanish version of an omelet, with sweet onions. I love the flavors of garlic and paprika from the aioli and bravas sauces. Potatoes with onions are another winning combination. Combining all of these elements makes for a delicious dish. Paprika potatoes with onions are perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Craving the classic flavors of an egg roll but without the wrapper? This one-pan version is an incredibly simple meal that’s made with a variety of vegetables and tastes just like a traditional egg roll.
From the webiste: “Instant Pot
Shredded Chicken Burrito Bowl is the most delicious Burrito you will ever eat. One pot cooking in your instant pot and it takes less than 20 minutes to prepare.”
This sounds quite easy to make one of my favourite things to eat. Can also use with ground pork or chicken.
A pretty simple, classic slow-cooker version, modified to be gluten-free and dairy-free, and to fit my needs for preparation.
Ground turkey, italian herbs, garlic, and marinara.
This sounds like a pretty awesome dish.
Normally, zucchini would be far too wet to make a good lasagne, so this technique can be used to make the zucchini more suitable as a stand-in for the pasta noodles.
I might have died and gone to dessert heaven.
This sounds really basic and easy, when I have time to wait while it bakes. TOO THIN!
This recipe purported to be both dairy free and vegan, yet it listed “unsalted butter”; I replaced it with vegan butter (e.g. Earth Balance Red). It sounds like a really great curry.
The original recipe specified soy sauce and goat-cheese, so I modified it. This does sound like it would be great comfort soup. All that stuff to clear out the sinuses and fill and warm the belly.
This sounds yummy, and bonus gluten-free and dairy-free.
I was in the mood for an old family favourite, tater-tot casserole. This was my family’s standard Tuesday night fare, when my Mom came home from teaching at the Weavers’ Guild and needed something quick to feed to hungry children.
This is another one of those one-pan meals my seester calls “Stuff With Stuff In It” and makes a couple of meals worth of stuff. Mostly this is easy for me to make, doesn’t hurt my hands with much prep or handlind cold items, and is fast enough it doesn’t take all my spoons to make it.
This looked like a good recipe to try with my still-new allergies to dairy and sensitivity to gluten. I modified it a bit to suit myself, but it’s a pretty straight-forward recipe.
Looking for something I can bring to parties that also won’t kill me. I found this recipe at brand new vegan who seems to have similar ideas. As you’ll see, though, this turned non-vegan in a twist at the end.
Made this today for Memrorial Weekend celebration BBQ at my brother’s. I needed something to bring that I know I’d be able to eat and enjoy. Learning to find things I can eat while being out with normal folks is hard. This one, though, is AMAZING. This is pretty similar to Sweet and White Potato Salad except the taters are baked intead of boiled. Plus BACON.
This easy roasted cauliflower is a fantastic side to pasta, meat, or seafood. It also makes a great healthy snack.
I wanted something that was gluten-free and dairy-free to snack on one evening, and didn’t really want popcorn, my typical go-to these days, and thought “Hey, I have some tortilla chips, I have a couple cans of beans, why not make some bean dip?”. So I did.
I just made some lunch for myself and it was stream-of-concsiousness cooking.
Mung beans turn up in various guises in Asian cooking, with fresh sprouts being the most common form. This favorite dish of southern Vietnam uses yellow mung beans—split dried green mung beans with their husks removed. Nuoc cham is a condiment offered as an accompaniment to myriad Vietnamese dishes, such as these crepes.
“A casserole dish of seasonal vegetables that is so easy to prepare. It can be made a day ahead - just reheat before serving. Lemon juice can be substituted for balsamic vinegar, and you can use baking potatoes if you don’t have any Yukon Golds on hand.”
“A baked pear or apple recipe with a crunchy oatmeal cobbler-like topping. Simple and tasty. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Yummy!”
Another bog-standard potato salad recipe using skin-on red potatoes for a large group.
Using sweet and white potatoes, this salad is a bit of a surprise, but very enjoyable.
My cousin found this in the StarTrib and rushed off to the library to copy it down since they don’t subscribe. It was a really beautiful accompaniment to the salmon he grilled up for lunch.
A very different accompaniment for roasted meats, especially turkey.
Bulgogi is a traditional Korean dish, usually with beef. This is a version done in a crockpot, aka slow-cooker.
Buckwheat pancakes made with real buckwheat flour are gluten free.
This pizza’s crust is made entirely of meat, therefor it is lower carb, gluten-free and celiac friendly.
Uses low-fat ricotta cheese as the basis for the crust. Low carb, gluten-free, celiac-compatible.
This pizza has a crust made with zucchini! This should be celiac-friendly (gluten-free).
