Gluten-Free Potatoes with Olive Oil & Parsley in the Slow Cooker

The simplest ideas are sometimes the most useful. This is a simple recipe and it is that simplicity that makes it so good. I did these potatoes in my slow cooker so I made them “on autopilot” while I did other things.
 
I made the potatoes shown in the picture in the slow cooker as cubed potatoes with olive oil & parsley for seasoning.
 
Quartered or cubed potatoes with your favorite seasonings would work just as well. I served these recently for dinner with what I call a mini-meat loaf.

Gluten-Free Trail Mix Makes Healthy Snacks

Preparing healthy snacks is usually time-consuming  The good news is that not every snack has to be complicated or time-consuming to be healthy.  Gluten-free trail mix can be as healthy as you want it to be. Quick to make.  Quick to pack.  Easy to carry.  Nutrition on the go.  Those are good reasons to make some with your own favorite ingredients. When I happen to look at what’s available in vending machines or checkout lanes in many places, I’m appalled by how much of it is high in refined sugars and high in salt. They can also be high in volume or quantity. Look at how many “servings” of peanuts are usually in a simple bag of peanuts – two […]

Braised Pork Loin Chops with Green Onion Are Gluten-Free and Paleo

The flavors of lean pork and green onion work together so that this easy recipe hardly needs much else. We like these braised chops often, so it’s a good thing the boneless pork loin is so lean and quick to cook. When my family asks, “How long till supper is ready?” — I can tell them this will be ready soon!

It can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. That makes a great weeknight supper, but it tastes good enough for guests, too. Match it with a side dish of asparagus or green beans and possibly some potatoes for a well-rounded meal.

Easy Yellow Split Pea Soup in the Slow Cooker

This winter we’ve been adding more color and flavor to our meals by making our own soups, just like this Yellow Split Pea Soup. It’s so attractive with its yellow color, especially with some fresh parsley to top it.

Some recipes include a ham bone with split peas, but I think yellow split peas have enough flavor on their own that a good stock is sufficient to make a satisfying soup. In the slow cooker, with your favorite stock, this makes a filling dish, suitable for lunch or a light supper. This could easily be vegetarian or vegan by using your favorite vegetable stock.

These gluten-free roasted chicken breasts are flavorful and simple, yet are easy to serve and they look great on the plate, too.

And there isn’t a lot of clean-up afterwards, either. In fact, when I served this delicious meal to our dinner guests yesterday evening, it was so well received that there weren’t even any left-over veggies to put away!

Floride Pamplemousses, Sucré, à la Jami

For those who don’t speak French, I’m remembering a family friend who just turned 20 a few weeks ago and who gave my husband, Al, what I think is a great idea. A loose translation of the title might be “Florida Grapefruit, Sweetened, by Jami.” Here’s the story…

… I had to skip church Sunday because of something that was going on at home (we were watching a friend’s 2 dogs plus 1 of our own, it was raining, etc… just one of those weekends). Anyway, while at church, Al saw our friend Jami standing in the foyer with a grapefruit in her hand, eating it like an orange… or something that wasn’t sour, so, naturally, she immediately caught his attention. To put it succinctly… He was horrified!

If you know Al, you would also know that in addition to being the…

Add Kale, Onion and Peppers to Your Quick Healthy Meals List

I always like to have a few quick healthy meals handy like this gluten-free recipe made from kale, onion and peppers.

My husband actually likes this combination with kale, even though he never gets excited when he hears it’s on the menu. (Don’t tell him that I know he likes it J)

Having several 30 minute meals ready to go when necessary can be a lifesaver.

For more protein to go with these veggies, you can cook an egg or two in the center of the pan during the last few minutes of cooking time. These eggs are not technically poached since they aren’t in water deep enough to cover them, but they will cook nicely if you…
