{Recipe Alert} Healthy, Gluten Free Baked Fish & Chips (the fries are free of all 8 allergens)

fish-chips-thumb

I can’t tell you the last time I  had a fish stick. Not only because they’re typically filled with unhealthy bad-for-you fish and preservatives, but because they’re rarely ever gluten free. So I decided it was about time Adam and I enjoyed our own gluten free and grease free version of the dish. I don’t…

There was one thing I TOTALLY missed when I was in Disney… my morning smoothies. I just don’t feel right if I don’t have one! It’s not the same when you’re eating eggs or pancakes or waffles for breakfast (though delicious… doesn’t get my morning started in the same way). Every single week day morning…

When I was in college, I would eat a calzone a day. I’m not even kidding. There was this pizza place a few blocks away from me that served the most garlicky, calzoney (my new word) deliciousness that I can’t even begin to describe. My roommate and I would order them almost every night and…

There’s something romantic about brunch for me. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the thought of being served breakfast in bed like in the movies. Does that even happen in real life?! No, don’t answer that because if you write a comment below saying, “Oh my husband/ boyfriend/ girlfriend/ fiancee/ mom/ stranger I…

As you know from reading this blog, I admit pretty often that I am a HUGE chocolate addict. So big. And sadly, most chocolate contains soy lecithin, which I am highly sensitive to. No matter how many times I try to trick myself and my body that I’ll be okay, I’m not. Thank goodness for…

When I was little, I always liked to hear my mom tell me the story of what she ate before she went into labor with me (well, other than when I made her tell me what kind of day it was when I was born – sunshine with huge, beautiful “birthday clouds”). And I liked…

Though there’s frost outside and we keep getting winter weather warnings from the news, Adam and I still like to once-in-awhile eat foods that remind us of summer. One of the things we like to do is have a BBQ night where we eat hotdogs, hamburgers, “grilled” chicken and veggies, you name it! This past…

A few years ago I was hosting a party with friends and was planning the menu. I realized that everything I wanted to eat had some sort of dairy in it, yet, one of my good friends who was going to be in attendance, can’t eat dairy. So I knew I needed to tweak the…
