Gabby Friendly

P-day (party day) is four days away. I’m in emergency mode – getting all the last minute errands done, baking the last few sweets and preparing the house. Sadly the only solace I have is that in five days, it will be behind me. It’s sad to think of it that way, and I promise to enjoy the day of, […]

Can a back yard party be just a back yard party? Ask Nana!

June 7, 2012

It’s not like I’m the first person to ever throw a party. It’s even less likely that I’m the first person to throw a birthday party at their house. But I may win the most crazy one while doing so. I’ve already been baking for weeks. The requirement being that everything must be “Gabby friendly.” Fortunately in the world of […]

Chocolate Heaven!

May 31, 2012

With the kids’ big birthday bash just a mere couple of weeks away, I have been hard at work. I’m aspiring to make a sweet table of all Gabby friendly treats. In addition to that, my best friend is a vegan. So I clearly couldn’t pass up a vegan brownie cake recipe.     Print Vegan Brownie Cake Author: Ashley Skabar […]

It’s spicy…yet sweet!

May 25, 2012

I dusted off my folder of recipes that I have pulled together over the years. I uncovered a real vintage, circa Real Simple Thanksgiving edition 2006, and decided to give it a go! The best part of this one is that it uses applesauce in place of a lot of sugar so it makes it lower in calories. Coupled with […]

Quinoa…we meet again

May 16, 2012

So awhile back I tried a Black Bean and Quinoa dish. I fessed up that although I have had quinoa at restaurants and enjoyed it, I have never actually made quinoa and liked the end result. You people, a.k.a. my wonderful readers, gave me lots of recipes to try. I’m going to give Jessica Shiffman yet another call out, I’m […]

SMOKED…for more than just bagels

May 8, 2012

I try to cook a nice dinner every Friday in honor of Shabbat. Although, try can be a loose term 🙂 This week I tried a recipe I found in the local Pioneer Press newspaper. I felt like this was a little “out of the box” for me. First of all, it called for smoked salmon. I cook salmon but […]

It’s Saucy Over Here!

May 2, 2012

I like to think of myself as saucy, so I thought…hey why not try saucy green beans with chicken 🙂 I’m a big, HUGE fan of Lisa from Bites for Babies for many reasons. First, she runs a blog about feeding her baby in a nutritious, unique way. I’m after the same thing, duh. Second, she comes up with really […]

I’m surely SMITTEN for these

April 27, 2012

So in the constant quest to feed my family allergy friendly, low fat options…I always welcome recipes. Thanks to Jessica Shiffman, I decided to revisit my pumpkin phase. She introduced me to a new website, Smitten Kitchen, which has lots of great recipe ideas including an easiest baked mac and cheese that I wanted to dive directly into but try […]

Day 4 of the Challenge

April 11, 2012

As mentioned earlier in the week, I’m in the midst of the eight day Passover challenge. Keeping Passover has always been a challenge but now trying to manage Gabby’s allergies and keep Passover is REALLY difficult. Last night I made a meal that I was rather proud of. Tilapia with roasted potatoes I seasoned the tilapia with salt and pepper, […]
