Jump to Coconut Lime Recipe I promised more gluten-free recipes when we thought Ella might be gluten-intolerant. It turns out she’s not, shellfish was the culprit, but I am well-stocked with alternative flours, so I’m keeping my promise. Besides, just because we aren’t cutting it out entirely doesn’t mean we shouldn’t eat less of it.
Jump to Snickerdoodle Recipe One of the great things about being a mom is that your kids have friends, and then you get bonus kids in your life. If you’re really lucky, those kids have moms you like and you get your own amazing friends out of the deal. I’ve pretty much hit the jackpotContinue reading Snickerdoodles
Happy Tuesday! I wanted to get in a quick post ahead of Cinco de Mayo (barely). This lime and garlic marinade comes together quickly and is perfect for grilled chicken thighs. You could use breasts too, but they won’t be quite as juicy and flavorful. Slice up the grilled chicken thighs to use in tacos,Continue reading Lime and Garlic Marinated Chicken Thighs
Jump to Beef Stew Recipe This recipe makes good use of the red wine and balsamic marinade I posted a few weeks ago. I feel like it’s really a dish better suited for fall and winter, but we still have plenty of cool days ahead in Central Oregon. Plus, I made it for the cookbookContinue reading Red Wine Beef Stew
We are still about five weeks away from peak strawberry season, but I bought a package at Safeway this past week that was pretty good. Otherwise, to get our strawberry fix, we rely on frozen organic strawberries. We purchase the big bag at Costco unless we are fortunate to still have some Oregon strawberries inContinue reading Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie
This is a really long post, so I’m not going to bother with extra chatter. Don’t let the length put you off, though. Quiche is easy, especially if you use a store-bought crust. You may even skip the crust altogether if you coat the pie plate with non-stick spray. I just have listed many differentContinue reading Classic Quiche (with Optional Fillings)
Jump to Marinade Recipe It’s beginning to look a lot like grilling season! It will be hit or miss here in Central Oregon for another couple of months, but we have busted out the Weber a couple times already. I used this marinade on some tri-tip beef (pictured above) and it worked beautifully.
It’s hard to believe the Easters with my “little girls” are now memories. Such happy ones, though, and I’m pulling them out today in picture form. I’m also including some favorite Easter recipe links in case you need some last-minute ideas.
Jump to Potato Soup Recipe We’ve gone gluten-free in the Schubert-McCallum household. I’m not gonna lie; we all hope it’s temporary. Ella had an allergic reaction recently, though, so until we get the test results back, she is avoiding wheat and gluten to be on the safe side. I am joining her in solidarity, andContinue reading Potato Soup, Gluten-Free
My oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe is a slightly tweaked version of the one provided on the Quaker Oats box. I add in a little more butter and vanilla, and I substitute coconut sugar for white sugar, so the cookies are not quite as sweet but have fantastic flavor and texture. They are more crispContinue reading Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
