Candied Pecan Banana Bread

Candied Pecan Banana Bread

A Most Versatile Quick Bread

Posted on May 27, 2015
I needed something to serve to guests on a Sunday evening, and I also needed a nutritious breakfast for the next day. So I decided to make some Candied Pecan Banana Bread. This quick bread recipe is not only moist and tasty as any banana bread should be, but it's actually full of things that are pretty good for you too. I used gluten free flour and you couldn't tell the difference, which is rare, and the candied nut topping gave you a satisfying crunch to top it all off. You'd never guess that this was made on the grill. Oh, did I mention that it's also versatile as heck too? You can throw it in a loaf pan for quick bread, muffin tins, mini loaves - which make fantastic little gifts, and even a cake pan if you wanted. You just have to remember to watch that baking time.

Flourless Apple Crisp

Flourless Apple Crisp

With Cranberries And Pecans

Posted on April 07, 2015
Flourless Apple Crisp With Cranberries And Pecans is the perfect end to any meal. This recipe is gluten free if you ensure that you have procured certified gluten free oats. And the best part is that you can pretty much put any kind of oats you have in there too, steel cut, quick cooking, whole, you name it. The sweetness of the apples and the tartness of the cranberries is all you need, and this Flourless Apple Crisp makes for a light and tasty end to a good meal. Or you could eat it for breakfast.

Wilted Kale Salad

Wilted Kale Salad

With Grilled Vegetables And Homemade Dressing

Posted on March 25, 2015
I have now taught my first grilling class. I needed to prepare a program that covered as many different ways to grill in one lesson. One thing though, it had to be vegetarian. That's where Wilted Kale Salad With Grilled Vegetables And Homemade Dressing came in. Actually a bunch of things crossed my mind, but the main thing was that I wanted to come up with four different meals that incorporated the same or similar ingredients. After class I asked which was their favorite. This Wilted Kale Salad With Grilled Vegetables And Homemade Dressing was number one on the list.

Curried Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Curried Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Perfect On A Cold Day

Posted on November 25, 2014
What a perfect day for soup. It was the first snowfall (that stuck) for the season, and to celebrate I made Curried Roasted Butternut Squash Soup. Okay so it was more for the purpose of warming our fingers and toes. It did, however, provide a lovely backdrop for the meal, and the photographs. I was inspired by how much I enjoyed the Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta and wanted to create a warming winter soup using similar ingredients and techniques.

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

With Oatmeal And Chocolate Chips

Posted on September 16, 2014

Sure, you could celebrate national peanut day with just one thing, and that thing was delicious grilled chicken legs, slathered with  Peanut Butter Barbecue Sauce, but what's the fun in that when you can celebrate with TWO recipes? Basically, I don't like to have a meal without something a little sweet at the end. I have a sweet tooth. It's right beside my garlic tooth and my meat tooth. 

This loaf of pure deliciousness is fantastically gluten free and vegan if you can believe it. It's like a granola bar got married to cake and had an oatmeal muffin baby, then sprinkled it with chocolate chips. No seriously guys, it's that good. It makes a filling breakfast, but it's perfect for a relatively guilt free after dinner sweet too.

One Bite Black Bean Brownies

One Bite Black Bean Brownies

On The Grill

Posted on August 24, 2014

When cooking for a crowd there are many times where you have people that have allergies. These are things that need to be considered carefully when selecting a menu. Recently I had the pleasure of cooking for 50-ish people. There were people that were gluten free, dairy free, diabetic, corn free and even egg free! Funnily enough no nut allergies... but I digress. Basically I wanted to finish off the meal that I prepared with a little bit of a sweet treat. I was inspired by The Minimalist Baker's Vegan Gluten Free Brownies to make these, One Bite Black Bean Brownies aren't crazy sweet but they have that hit of chocolate and fudge-ish texture that you like in a brownie.
