Last Minute Thanksgiving Made Easy With Udi’s

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful…that I’m not hosting! I’ve basically been a lump on the couch the last two months (yay, First Trimester!), so my kitchen is barely up to the task of dinner-on-real-plates, let alone a big feast for tons of family. Still, Udi’s has come through again with more products to make life […]

Gluten Free Grab and Go

Udi's Collage

The work from home life is less than glamorous at times. Like the time you didn’t get to shower until 3 (we won’t talk about how many days it had been)…or the time your laundry pile was taller than you…or the time you made a cheeseball for dinner. And that was all just last week! […]

7 Easy Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas

I’m not a morning person. I feel like you need to know that about me before I ever write another food-related post. If I’m going to make an elaborate omelette or coffee cake, it will probably be on a whim at around 12:45…in the morning. My energy starts to appear around 11 AM (on a […]

With my grill on high, I cooked this London Broil for nine minutes and then flipped it to cook for nine more minutes. To get classic searing on the meat, leave it alone for the full cooking time on each side.

  It often seems as though your efforts to eat inexpensively mean having to sacrifice what many of us see as standard fare. For example: What about beef? With the toughest cuts of beef starting above five dollars a pound, a juicy grilled steak will bust the $7 Dinner budget… or will it? Very recently, […]

Get Prepared – 30 Day No Cook Menu Plan

Chili

  It doesn’t take much to render us powerless . . . that sounds deeper than I mean.  I am talking about electricity.  One ice storm, one tornado, one well-placed lightening strike, and we are thrust back to pioneer life, possibly for several days or a few weeks.  Here are some ideas to prepare you […]

Summer Picnic: Have All the Class without the Expensive Price Tag

Picnic

  With the warmer summer weather, I’d been aching to get out for a day of hiking with my husband – complete with a picnic lunch. I saw a great article on NPR about how to fix a meal that stays fresh all morning while you’re hiking. But after thinking about it, I realized that not only […]
