Paleo! WTF? Halibut with Pancetta, Basil & Mushroom Butter Sauce

If someone told me I'd eventually go Paleo, I would have died laughing. Being gluten-free was hard enough! But after a month of having a Paleo diet, the pain levels in my body keep dropping week to week. Treating Lyme disease is not just killing pathogens. Lymies have to use every tool in the tool […]

Halibut with Cherry Tomato Basil Sauce

Halibut with Cherry Tomato and Basil Sauce - 350/365 I know this is a repeat, but it's been a difficult week between massive amounts of work going on for the landscaping project, and just about everything failing all at once, it's been hell. I have a running list of the shit hitting the fan this […]

Coq Au Vin

Coq au Vin 343/365 "People eat because they're hungry. I want to make food that makes people stop eating." -- Bradley Cooper in Burnt.   Have you seen the movie? I really liked it because the viewer had to read between the spoken lines. And the dishes served? Nothing short of a work of art. […]

One Pot Pork Chops with Warm Escarole Salad

One Pot Pork Chops with Warm Escarole Salad - 336/365 It sure is nice to have my appetite back! For the past few years, when I had energy, I'd cook but I wouldn't always eat what I cooked because of the constant nausea brought on by the incessant antibiotics. Thanks to daily intake of bone […]

Classic Tuscan Vegetable Soup

Classic Tuscan Vegetable Soup 329/365 It's soup weather in Santa Cruz Mountains: wet, foggy and cold. I bought a fantastic new Italian cook book, Every Night Italian, by Giuliano Hazan, the son of my favorite Italian cookbook author, Marcella Hazan. This is a fantastic hearty soup that could be made vegetarian by using vegetable broth, […]

BLT Canapes : Happy New Year

BLT Canapes for Appetizer Night - 313/365 "What do you want for New Year's Eve dinner," I asked Mr. Wild Dingo. "BLT's," he replied. So I made these bad boys: BLT Canapes with basil and garlic mayonnaise. They are a bit tedious to make but super simple and oh so delicious! We tend to do […]

Chicken Marsala

Chicken Marsala with reduced Marsala wine, infused with porcini mushrooms. - 301/365 I've made a lot of different versions of Chicken Marsala. Most recipes call for only one pan and are relatively fast and easy to make. This recipe calls for a lot of pots/pans but it's the worth effort. Building flavors independently always trumps […]

Craving

  Craving. 287/365 I had a serious taco craving, Internet. And being gluten-free didn't slow me down. Tacos in Butter Bib lettuce is just as delicious as the corn stuff. Plus you can eat a lot more! And who doesn't love a lot more tacos? Mr. Wild Dingo gave this two thumbs up. He loves […]

What to Do With Left-Over Cranberry Sauce

Vicious Cycle - 280/365  (Sadly, that's not my wine) Mr. Wild Dingo and I visited relatives in L.A. over Thanksgiving. I brought the cranberry sauce. It got rave reviews and I passed the recipe around (the secret is a lot of ginger). Still, we came home with a bucket of left-over cranberry sauce. So I made another […]

Comfort Soup

Egg Drop in Bone Broth Soup - 252/365 This is my favorite go-to meal for those times when I'm feeling sick or too tired to cook. On the other hand, I do eat it regularly for lunch at least 4 times per week and find it's filling and satisfying. It's a very simple meal to […]

Dutch Baby!

Dutch Baby Pancake - 238/365 Where have I been all my life? Why did I never know about Dutch Baby Pancakes? Apparently, they were all the rage in 1977 when they hit the cover of Sunset magazine. I was a mere 10-year old girl then, whose idea of fun was to turn her pajamas into a […]

Mr. Wild Dingo's Awesome Galette

The Perfect Galette - 224/365 Ever since he accidentally invented the Blueberry Crêpecake, Mr. Wild Dingo has had a hankerin' for a galette. So he did what he always does: obsess over finding  just the right crêpe pan and make me buy it. Like he had to twist my arm? After a few weeks of […]

Flower and Foodie

Chamomile - 202/365 Not much has changed these days. Each day my headaches range from mildly annoying to terrifying migraines.  My energy levels are low to the point I can only do one or two things. Saturday was one of those days. Mr. Wild Dingo was off this week and took over some of my dog […]

Weekend Highlights

Insect on a flower 160/365 It was a fairly uneventful weekend. Saturday Mr. Wild Dingo had a friend over for a bike ride and some post ride snacks. I spent a little time hanging out with them and then took a long rest. Later, we gave the dogs an over-due bath. It really helps to […]
