Mojito Green Juice

Posted on August 16, 2013

Beat the summer heat with this refreshingly healthy green drink.

I have a new favorite green juice recipe. Although I’ve never done a full on green juice diet or green juice detox, I think that green juice has major benefits and drink it several days every week. I feel so healthy when I get a big bowl of vegetables into my diet, in liquid form, in addition to the veggies I eat all day long.

I found a mojito green juice recipe […]

Simple Green Juice

Posted on January 5, 2013

Simple Green Juice made with just three ingredients (cucumber, parsley, and lemon) is ultra refreshing.

Happy New Year! Just in case you are still deciding on your New Year’s resolutions, I found a bunch of quick and easy ones in Esquire Magazine.

Mushroom Masters: Herb Stuffed Mushrooms

Posted on September 26, 2011

I was recently invited to develop an appetizer recipe for the Mushroom Masters, a global competition that helps celebrate National Mushroom Month (September). Since I love mushrooms, and they are so easy to prepare gluten free and Paleo, I jumped at the chance to participate.

For the competition, I created the recipe for these Herb Stuffed Mushrooms –they make a lovely gluten free appetizer for a cocktail party or nice nosh for a gluten free brunch. While this convenient finger food looks […]

Chicken Meatballs from Spunky Coconut

Spunky Coconut’s Chicken Meatballs!

This giveaway is now closed.

This recipe comes from The Spunky Coconut Cookbook by my adorable friend, Kelly Brozyna of the spunkycoconut.com.

Last weekend, between all of my writing deadlines, I snuck out of the house, away from the computer to meet up with Kelly and her family at the Boulder Farmer’s Market.  We grabbed some grub from the market, splashed around with her gorgeous daughters in the creek, then walked around downtown together for a while.

How refreshing!  I […]

Flax Focaccia Becomes Parsley Bruschetta

Posted on July 22, 2009

This is the bread recipe that changed my life –well, at least temporarily, in a small way.  As you will see from the bruschetta below and more recipes in the days to come, I have turned this focaccia bread base into several other interesting types of baked goods.

First, however, I  do need to disclose that this focaccia recipe is really not my own.  It is Laura Dolson’s and was pointed out to me by someone in the low carb group […]

Pear Parsley Salad Dressing

Posted on June 8, 2009

I have a huge parsley plant in our backyard that came back from last year and so have been looking for ways to utilize this super nutritious green herb in different dishes.  I came up with this Pear Parsley Dressing which my family enjoyed quite a bit.  The inspiration for this delicious gluten-free dressing came from the lovely Daniela of Daniela’s Kitchen.

While she served her Pear Dressing over arugula and fennel, I chose to serve mine over a bed of […]

Parsley Pesto with Sundried Tomatoes

Posted on March 3, 2008

Traditionally, pesto is made with basil. This time of year, it’s not so easy to find organic basil at a reasonable price. Really, the time for basil is summer. And we’re definitely not there yet. Not even close, out here in Colorado.

And yet, I love pesto. All those good greens ground up into delightful, fresh flavors.

Last night, in the mood for something delicious and healthy (in that order), I made pesto using parsley. I always keep parsley in the fridge […]
