This is one of  my favorite weekend lunches, Chopped Salad with Chickpeas. I am cleaning and doing laundry today but the sunny Spring weather is calling me! I ventured out onto the deck to eat lunch and now I think I am done cleaning! After working all week, it is easy to be overwhelmed with […]


Post image for Gluten Free Baked Cheesecake

A light and delicious gluten free baked cheesecake that is simple to make would be a great choice for your Easter dinner! I don’t post many desserts on here, because I don’t make many desserts!

I get a little tired of baked fish. Sometimes I add lemon, sometimes Dijon mustard or other flavors, but it still gets boring. Once and awhile I just have to break down and bread the fish and fry it. But that adds calories and makes a huge mess. The other night I invented this happy […]

I have been trying a few of Aldi’s gluten free products. I really don’t buy frozen, pre-made foods such as pizza or TV dinners, but they seemed to have some. I had a package of their Penne pasta in the cupboard I’ve been meaning to try, but we seem to have gotten away from pasta […]
