Rosanna “Mrs. Right”, one of my lovely Hosting With Style book models, recently emailed me this recipe! It sounds interesting, and while it may be some time before I get my hands on all of these ingredients, I figured I’d pass it along to you anyway.
All ingredients except possibly the fish sauce are reportedly gluten-free. If you use a store-bought rotisserie chicken(optional), make sure that it is gluten-free as well if that is a concern for you. Enjoy!

Here’s another high-protein staple in my lunches and dinners this season. Enjoy!
In the slimming-down spirit of Spring, I’ve been experimenting with a sort of Paleo-Meets-Atkins food regimen recently.
I can say that, while this gal loves her gluten free pizza, bread, cereal, and pasta, and I will never forsake these completely, the lower-carb diet is making me feel great! So I’m going to be sharing some high in protein recipes with you over the next few months.
Here’s my go-to breakfast for when I’m sick of scrambled or poached eggs. It bakes up quickly, and I can eat it for a few days. Enjoy!
Gluten-Free Crustless Quiche
It’s the Holiday season, and life has been pretty hectic with a cross-country move into a somewhat nomadic lifestyle of freelance and contract work for me and Husband. Currently, we’re stationed in Atlanta in my parents’ winter home, which they generously loaned us through the season.
During the Holidays, my family and circle of friends celebrates Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year’s, and The Russian New Year. Add in dietary restrictions, and there’s a lot of room for experimenting with traditional recipes! I made these gluten-free latkes for my husband and sister the other day for an intimate brunch. It was my first time making them and I’m really pleased with how they turned out.
Husband and I have been spending November traveling and seeing family. One recent chilly afternoon here in Georgia, I decided to try my hand at eggplant parm for my parents and sister.
It’s my first time making it, and it came out well! Here’s the recipe.
In light of it being Back To School season, a discussion about Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches in my office spawned a poll. Follow the links to get recipes and product links!

My sister Alicia is the author of The Accidental Diet. It’s a hilarious, memoir-esque read with some sage wisdom regarding the yo-yo or fad diet vs counting calories in ‘normal’ foods.
I’m usually in the throes of battling the Marriage Belly, since for some reason living with someone and being the happiest one has ever been in one’s life can tend to make one fat. Also, since eating is communal, it’s easy to feel like you have to keep up with the person you stare at across the table every night.
I’ve found success using the My Fitness Pal app with a few close pals. It’s a calorie tracker, and it points out to me on pretty much a daily basis that, oh yeah, veggies are pretty low in calories. The problem is, most people think veggies and they think salads (which, to me, not only feel like labor to prepare, they feel like labor to eat).

One of my favorite blogs, A Slob Comes Clean, features my recipes for Curried Egg Salad and Curried Potato Salad today. (Thanks, Nony!)
These are great side dishes for your Independence Day Celebration, and they’re Vegan and Gluten-free, too. Happy 4th, everyone!
