Orange Peel Chicken


We usually have Sunday dinner at my parents house every week. This week they were staying with friends for the weekend and would be back in time for dinner but not to cook it. So everyone was going to come to my house instead. This wasn’t the first time everyone was coming over for dinner but this was the first time trying this recipe.

I originally found an orange peel shrimp recipe on Pinterest and adapted my recipe from that.
It was delicious!

Chicken and Kale with Potatoes!

Spinach & Ricotta Polenta Cakes

Polenta is pretty much a staple in most Italian homes- even more so in Gluten Intolerant Italian homes.

In my last post I said how I was making the Coconut Dream Bars for a get together I was going too, well these Polenta cakes will also be joining the party.

For the cake part you need Continue reading

Italian Sausage with Zucchini and Tomatoes

Sausage with Zucchini and Tomatoes I love to cook, but I was finding it difficult to find recipes that were both Gluten and Casein free that my kids would actually eat. While searching the web and the app store on my phone hoping to find something to point me in the right direction I stumbled onto the Whole Foods Recipes app! I fell in love. It let me search according to our dietary restrictions, pull recipes that I liked and even compiled a grocery list for me.

We tried the first recipe tonight and it was a BIG hit!

It was fast and easy.

Ingredients: Continue reading
