There’s a gluten-free baked penne recipe that takes less than an hour? Yep! You’ll need a decent sauce. If you make you’re own, that’s ideal. But if you don’t, no worries. There are some decent brands that aren’t packed with sugar and preservatives. I suggest starting with one…(Read More)

Do Thanksgiving pies cause you stress? Let’s be honest, pie-making is not everyone’s jam. If not, no worries. You’re still a good person. Thanksgiving can be stressful enough with the cooking, family drama, travel, and overall craziness of the season. Don’t add more stress to your table with dessert anxiety…(Read More)

Lemon Basil Quinoa Salad is loved to the last drop! I whipped up this dish for multiple parties this holiday season. Much to my delight, it was a hit everywhere I took it! My dish not only hung with cool foods, like potato salad, pasta salad, and roast beef, it was the first thing gone…(Read More)
