Here I am, again, for the first time in years, to share a recipe I made up for Thanksgiving. Why? Well, it turns out it’s delicious. This was our first Thanksgiving as the official hosts and there were three vegetarians on our guest list. I sort of hate it when people assume that vegetarians can just eat […]

I’m not including pictures in this post because, well, frankly, if you’ve seen one scoop of slightly beige ice cream you’ve seen them all. Totally unnecessary to repeat. What is NOT totally unnecessary is making and eating this ice cream. Truth be told I’ve never really been a fan of ice cream… until I started […]
You might be wondering why I bothered to write “gluten free” in the title of this recipe. You’d just assume that potato latkes don’t have gluten in them, right? After all, potatoes don’t have gluten. But this brings us to an insidious part of food production: wheat flour is in things you would never expect […]
Not much to say here except that this is yummy. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. I mean, how likely is it that a low-fat cheesy pasta is actually going to taste good? But, it was, in fact Adam and I were vying for the leftovers the next night!
If you have been reading my blog a while you know that I love soup. I really just adore it and I don’t know why. It’s a vague term and can encompass anything from New England Clam Chowder to Consume, but there’s rarely been a soup I haven’t loved. This one is a nice addition […]

Holy cow this is yummy. And there isn’t even any cow in it! Ha, ha, I know I’m not really that funny. Actually the “funny” part of this recipe is that when I found it in the alli book I was immediately drawn to it because I’ve become a real fan of ginger in the […]
I. Love. This. Pasta. I’m almost tempted to leave this post at that, but that wouldn’t be enough to tell you about it’s lightness, the brightness of the lemon, how quick and easy it is to make.
So I’ve been on this alli diet plan for a little over a month and one of the things I’ve been most pleased with is all the wonderful baked goods I get to eat. There are muffins (wait until we get to the muffins!) and breads and all sorts of breakfast treats that I […]
One of the things I’ve been enjoying on the Alli food plan is that there is no food or food group that is demonized. You can eat carbs and meat and fruits and veggies and even fats in balance without having to feel bad about it.
