I absolutely love a good roast chicken and while they really are best cooked in the oven nestled into a bed of onions and carrots and all that good stuff, who has the time during the week?Read More
If you don't know what Bareburger is, I am so terribly sorry. It's an eco-friendly, sustainable, organic, all-things-good burger joint that offers and unbelievable selection of gluten free foods. Now normally when I hit up Bareburger, I naturally go for a burger. But recently, I found myself staring at their menu starving, but not wanting the inevitable gut-bomb and bloat that comes along with any burger (even the gluten free kind).Read More
I have been terribly lazy about cooking (and blogging) for the past few months. I'm not sure if it's just food fatigue, or the fact that I moved this year and am still getting used to my kitchen or what, but I've been terrible at making my usual interesting meals and even worse at sharing them with you.Read More
It's been hellishly hot this summer. And the record-breaking heat has be thinking three things: God I sweat a lot, I need to rehydrate, and we need to take better care of our planet so this horribly inconvenient truth of global warming doesn't get worse! While there isn't much I can do about the sweating (it's nature's detox), the latter two concerns are totally things I can do something about.Read More
We are gathered here today to experiment with the fine art and subtle science of the vegan wonder known as Cashew Cheese. As you long-time readers will know, I am not a vegan, but I do love vegan food for it inventive freshness and ability to make me eat an entire bowl of plants and not feel the slightest bit deprived.Read More
My apologies for going dark for a few weeks there. Blake and I moved into anew apartment, I dog sat, I rescued a dog off the street, returned it to it's owner, and essentially have been doing nothing but getting settled in my new home and eating takeout. But this morning I woke up feeling like I was ready to rejoin the internet and so today I have a SUPER easy, healthy, breakfast recipe for you all.Read More
My mom makes really good granola. There used to be a really big tub of it in our pantry at all times and I would sneak handfuls when she wasn't looking. It's a strange thing to say, but granola is one of my comfort foods.Read More
I am so excited to tell you about my lunch today. It was so delicious I had to bump it up and post about it today because I wanted you Brooklynites to build it into your already packed weekends. I'm sure you're looking at that picture above and going, "What is that? It looks amazing! It looks delicious! It looks like gluten...but that can't be right." And it's not!Read More
I have made no secret of my intense and undying love of Mexican food, nor have made a secret of my love for breakfast. So when The B Man suggested a new Mexican brunch spot in Crown Heights, I got dressed as quickly as possible and enthusiastically stomped over to the corner of Franklin Ave and Sterling Place, fully prepared to stuff my face at Chavela's.Read More
I know, I know, I've been doing A LOT of food posts all in a row and I swear I'll mix it up soon. What can I say? I've been really hungry.
This recipe today is another quick, easy, healthy, delicious staple in my life that is packed with vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats! Whoot Whoot!Read More
On a recent weekend trip down to West Palm Beach to visit The B Man, we stopped into Christopher's Kitchen, and I feel in love with the concept of "nut meat" tacos. As I've mentioned before, I'm not vegan, but I do love vegan food and experimenting with new healthier ways to enjoy my favorite less-healthy foods.Read More
If you've been following this blog for a while you know that I occasionally engage in a little game of Chopped with myself. I look in my fridge and cupboards and I have to make something delicious, healthy, and easy without going to the store.Read More
Okay everyone, Valentine's Day is over and if you're anything like me, you've be indulging in sweets, booze, and fewer veggies than you probably should since Thanksgiving. This happens to me pretty much every year and every year the siren call of sugar becomes harder and harder to ignore.Read More
I really really really love hummus. I love to eat it with veggies, with chips, on sandwiches, hell I'd even eat it with a spoon. But I don't love all the preservatives and whatnot in the store bought hummuses.Read More
Today, I am here to share with you a total lifesaver of a recipe. Pardon the over information, but earlier this week my body was attacked and fell victim to a vicious stomach virus. After the worst was over, I was pretty intensely dehydrated and everything from my mother's wisdom to the health gods of Pinterest told me I needed to replenish my electrolytes.Read More
I know what you're thinking, "A cookie recipe three days after Christmas? How could you, MG? Aren't you supposed to post a cleanse or an exercise plan or something?"
But I've thought of something you haven't, New Year's Eve/Day. If you're anything like me, you spend all your time and energy getting things ready for Christmas and then on December 31st you realize you have a party that night and another one the next day and nothing to take to either.Read More
I love eggs. But I don't love overcooked, dry nonsense eggs. I love my eggs perfectly warm, runny and full of their natural flavor.
Like most people I ate scrambled eggs for most of my childhood. Then the movie Runaway Bride came out and there was a whole thing about how you like your eggs and I thought, "There are different ways to have eggs? Who knew?" For some reason, I'd heard of poached eggs and asked my mom to make some for me. I remember my fork cracking through the egg white, the yolk spilling out and my life changing forever.Read More
Thanksgiving is tomorrow and my preparations are well underway. But if this is your first gluten free Thanksgiving, or if you simply haven't found a suitable GF Stuffing recipe, I'm here to help!Read More
