what’s for dinner?

Summer is such a fun time to try new recipes!  With the longer days we are eating dinner later, leaving extra time to cook delicious meals.  I am currently following the Autoimmune Protocol Diet to try to calm down some of my autoimmune inflammation issues, which has provided an additional cooking challenge (I already eat gluten free).  Here are some of the winning dishes from our house:

After 45 days of eating this food plan, I have noticed significant improvement in my inflammation.  Plus, I like the challenge of cooking with constraints!

Which of these would you try?  Any of your favorite to share?

My little guy and I both love to cook.  It’s probably our favorite activity to do together.  All of the time together spent chopping, peeling and stirring over the stove allow us time to chat about our day.  Here are a few of our favorite things to make these days:

holiday bites

I hosted our annual holiday open house this past weekend and I thought I’d share a few of my favorite holiday bite-size hors d’oeuvres.  My philosophy is to serve just 4 or 5 dishes and have plenty of them to go around!  Huge thank you to Elizabeth with Cutting Board Catering for helping out with the food.  While I can’t really share the caterer’s recipes, I hope that these holiday bites will serve as inspiration for your upcoming gatherings.

Pesto Potato Frittata

Most people think of frittatas for breakfast for lunch, but they are a hearty and substantial appetizer.  Bonus: They can be served room temperature.  While any frittata ingredients will do, this pesto and potato version is a crowd pleaser and vegetarian-friendly.

flavors of fall

Sorry for the radio silence!  Since my little guy turned 5, we have been battling ear infections, which resulted in ear tubes round 2 and an adenoidectomy.  We are still recouping at our house, but I thought I’d share a few of our favorite fall dishes.  We’ve been busy baking here, since Gabriel isn’t ready to get out and about quite yet:

  • Nothing can beat the simplicity of oatmeal raisin cookies.  These are the best (so soft and chewy) and fill your house with a glorious aroma as they bake.

  • I love pecan recipes, especially during this season.  This kale and pecan salad would be the perfect side to serve for a fall dinner.

  • Nothing is more comforting than a fall soup.  This butternut squash is a house favorite for our family for a lunch or a festive dinner starter.

  • Everyone needs a go-to game day dish.  These wings are sure to please even the most upscale of crowds.
