Meet pretty Kayla, of the blog Gracefully Vintage, who hails from Sydney, Australia. I enjoy looking at her beautiful Instagram feed which features her vintage outfits and a peek into her life, especially when  she’s enjoying summer and I’m freezing on the other side of the world.

The other day she posted this delicious-looking meal, and I begged her to share! She was kind enough to oblige.

Gluten-Free Chicken Parm for Two

I made this a couple weeks ago while husband and I were settling into our new apartment. It was so tasty I didn’t want it to end! The trickiest part to this recipe is getting the pasta right, since brown rice spaghetti can get messed up pretty quickly.

Ingredients:

2 chicken breasts, no more than about 1 1/2 inches thick

Grill and Smoker Recipes

Here in Florida at what I’ve come to refer to as the Family Compound, my sister’s family and my husband and I have been grilling (with propane and on the smoker) several times a week.

Recently, my brother in law James made pork ribs and chicken wings in the smoker.  I’m sharing these recipes here, including James’s custom dry rubs and sauces.

Guest Post: Rosanna and Paula’s Twist on Pad Thai

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!

Rebekah’s Stuffed Shells – For Moms and Wakes

Recently I visited my younger sister Rebekah Scott, author of the humor and survival guide book Motherhood Is Easy … (Clearview Press) and blog Motherhood is Easy.

I have yet to take the Rugrat Plunge, and so for me, dinners are pretty simple. However, many of you have kids clinging to your kneecaps as I type this, so here’s a quick and easy dish that  freezes well, pleases many, and is great to pass on if you have a friend who’s sick, newly parenting, or grieving; it’s a good potluck dish, too.

I also shot a video in case you don’t have time to read the recipe. Enjoy!

Christmas Menus

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.

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.

Sage Cornish Game Hen and Stock

After my Halloween post, I was asked for my cornish game hen recipe. So heeeere you go!

I always try to make stock with any birds I roast, since I don’t like to waste food. It saves money and makes me feel like I’m making the most of the animal I’ve chosen to eat. This goes double for holiday birds which are larger, hunting game, or Farmer’s market or organic birds which are more expensive. So I’ve included the stock recipe, too.
