paleo honey mustard dressing

I love salads, and making my own salad dressing is a must when eating real food. Think about it, it takes minutes to make, you can pick all of your own ingredients and you get to bypass horrible oils like soybean and vegetable, along with all of those crazy items no one can say, but certainaly should not eat (can you say xantham gum, gar gum or carrageenan).

honey lime grilled flank steak

Using different cuts of meat is a great decision when you are trying to go the economical route. Sure, I would always prefer a beautiful Strip Steak or Filet Mignon, but when you are feeding a family of five, that is saved for special occasions or just once in awhile. The beauty of choosing a Flank steak is, if you find a larger sized piece, you can get two dinners out of it.

chicken and rice {gluten free}

Easy gluten free dinners that take minutes to pull together, are so important when life is busy and you want to sit down with your family for a nutritious meal. This Chicken and Rice compilation, is a Mediterranean bowl of sorts, that uses basic ingredients as the starting point, but can take many additions like spinach and mushrooms to make it even better. It doesn't even have to be served piping hot, which makes it an even bigger winner for a make ahead dinner.

Pesto is just one of those recipes that really should say, add whatever you like and blend. Traditionally it is a mixture of basil, pine nuts, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. It is an accompaniment to many Italian recipes, whether it is used alone as a sauce for pasta or additional flavor to soups, stews or even added to meatballs or meatloaf.

paleo banana bread

I took my most favorite banana muffin recipe and readjusted a few ingredients to make it Paleo compliant. I'm am a little afraid to say it's better but I think I hit it out of the park on this one. As a gluten free baker, once you figure out how to use the endless choice of flours and how to combine them, you hit this beautiful sweet spot where recipes come together and just satisfy.
