Lemon Icebox Pie

Lemon Icebox Pie is a Southern dessert named “icebox” because in old times it was set in the refrigerator rather than baked. This is a no bake, eggless and lower-in-fat version. There are many variations of this recipe. Usually it is made using condensed milk. My version uses firm low-fat yogurt or Greek yogurt. I also added some lemon juice and finely grated lemon zest to give it more intense, tangy lemon flavor. The low-fat whipped topping helps to maintain a creamy, ice-cream like texture to the filling....more

Gluten-Free Meatball Stuffed Shells

Happy 2014! I know I'm a little late on this, and I apologize. I decided to take a couple weeks off from blogging to refresh, recharge, and let my creativity have a break. I didn't have much time for cooking anyway since the holidays were super busy and I am finishing up with cold number two...which I don't know about you but I certainly do not feel like cooking when I am sick. Anyway, I'm back and ready to make 2014 a great gluten-free year!...more

Toasted Spelt, Escarole, and White Bean Soup

The new year is here and, with it, all sorts of ill-fated resolutions and good intentions. I gave up resolutions years ago because I noticed a strange phenomenon. Thanksgiving would pass, I'd be eating leftovers for days in my sweatpants - ironic that I never work up a sweat while wearing them -  and I would begin a downward spiral of self-loathing....more

Copycat Northwestern Steakhouse Dinner

Mike and I have always been huge steak fans!  Living in a small community in North Central Iowa, with our closest metropolitan areas being about 2 hours away, you’d think it would be impossible to find a good steakhouse in our vicinity.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  In a quaint building, nestled between youth baseball fields in our hometown of Mason City, IA, is hidden a true gem for steak lovers – The Northwestern Steakhouse....more

A Merry Christmas

We generally alternate Thanksgivings and Christmases, so this year we stayed in the area to celebrate Christmas with Mike's family.  His mother joined us for dinner on the 25th and we had a really nice day.  I cooked our dinner, and it was so easy and delicious!...more

3 Day Detox Grocery List

Here is the grocery list for the three day detox. It may seem like a long list of items, but many of them you probably already have stashed away in your cupboards. The fruits can be used fresh or frozen depending on what is in season in your area. I tried to use a similar recipe scheme so that ingredients could be bought in more of a bulk form to save more money....more
