Inspiralized Rice: Parmesan Squash Rice Risotto with Asparagus & Green Peas (Gluten Free)

January 6th, 2014 by

Are you sitting down? Yes? Great, now let me introduce…. Inspiralized Rice!  I didn’t think it was possible, but one spiralized recipe gone terribly wrong, and I discovered that spiralized noodles can be made into rice-like “bits” that mimic the real thing. You’re going to want to Pin, Tweet, Instagram, and post this up on Facebook […]

Baked Salmon & Sesame Butternut Squash “Soba” Noodles with Broccoli (at Against All Grain!)

December 20th, 2013 by

I’m a big fan of Danielle Walker’s cookbook and food blog, Against All Grain. Not only does she whip up some incredibly healthy Paleo and gluten-free recipes, she’s a mother and wife. Plus, she lives in the San Francisco Bay Area (uhm, totally jealous about that). Her health story is inspirational, so make sure you […]

Smoked Chorizo and Butternut Squash Noodle Skillet with Avocado, Kale and Fried Eggs

December 12th, 2013 by

Chorizo. Just the word itself sounds sexy. Smoked chorizo (of the Spanish type) is my jam. On Saturday mornings, while Lu does a little cleaning (he’s the best!), I cook up a big batch of eggs, kale, avocado, onions and chorizo, seasoned lightly with smoked paprika. We can’t wait to dig in.  Before I even […]

Once, my mother and I ordered champagne and lump crab meat at an airport. I actually forget where we were going, but we felt special. There’s something about lump crab meat that’s fancy. I like to think that this spiralized butternut squash pasta dish is regal. The feta and parsley look stunning on top of the […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Noodles with Orange-Cranberry Sauce & Honey Roasted Pecans

November 20th, 2013 by

And another first for me… cranberry sauce! If you haven’t noticed already, I’m not big on canned or frozen veggies and sauces. I think that food is immensely more enjoyable when made as freshly as possible. That’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with canned goods…. I often used canned diced tomatoes to save […]

Butternut Squash Noodle Turkey Bolognese Stuffed Acorn Squash with Melted Gruyere: Two Ways!

October 29th, 2013 by

I tell ya, it’s not easy naming recipes. There’s just too much that I want to convey in each recipe. Simply, this dish is a gluten-free version of a spaghetti stuffed acorn squash. But, it’s much more than that. It’s roasted butternut squash noodles tossed in a fresh turkey bolognese sauce, stuffed into a roasted […]

Autumn Harvest Roasted Butternut Squash Pasta

October 15th, 2013 by

Yikes. That’s a long recipe title. I didn’t know how to shorten it!  “Harvest” simply means the gathering of crops in a season. Well, this season has brought plenty of Autumn vegetables to our local farmer’s market, and I’m determined to use all of them. During our customary Saturday morning trip to the market a […]
