Thai Style Fried Rice with Beef |

Take your fried rice to the next level with this Thai-Style Pineapple Fried Rice with Beef. It’s super flexible and super delicious. The best part? It comes together in mere minutes. Every now and then, I stumble across a recipe on Pinterest that is, simply put, amazing. That’s not to say that I don’t find good recipes. Or things that we enjoy making on a regular basis. But AMAZING is hard to come by. Particularly when you have to avoid a whole lot of ingredients like eggs, tomatoes, peppers, sriracha, and chili sauce. So when I stumbled across a recipe for Thai Pineapple Fried Rice over at COOKIE + kate, I...

Balsamic Burgers with a Balsamic Glaze

Balsamic Burgers | nightshade free, dairy free, gluten free

B is for balsamic, beef, and burgers. Which come together beautifully in these deliciously simple (and simply delicious) balsamic burgers. And if beef isn’t your thing, feel free to kick it up a notch and drizzle the balsamic glaze on top of your favorite turkey, chicken, salmon, or veggie burger.  Burgers and I go WAY back. They were one of 5 things that I ate as a child, along with french fries, spaghetti, meatloaf, oven fried potatoes, and bologna and pickle roll-ups. (Yeah, I know that last one sounds disgusting. I was teased endlessly for it as a child.) I even ordered a burger and fries at a 4-star French restaurant, much to my...

Beef and Broccoli

Beef with Broccoli | gluten free, nightshade free, dairy free

Never miss out on eating out again with this quick and easy recipe for beef and broccoli. It’s gluten free and nightshade free, and a heck of a lot better than take-out.  There are very few dishes that The Husband and I agree on when it comes to Chinese food. I love anything chicken, he doesn’t. He loves the tofu dishes, I don’t. I’ll do soups, he prefers egg rolls. He’ll do seafood, I won’t. You get where I’m going with this, right? The two categories that we will unequivocally agree upon? Veggie-packed noodle dishes or beef and broccoli. We’ve been known to occasionally switch things up and go for beef with scallions, but we...

Teriyaki Burgers with Grilled Pineapple

Teriyaki Burgers with Grilled Pineapple

When it comes to burgers, The Hubster and I tend to be pretty simple. We like a basic burger, seasoned with a little garlic, salt and pepper. Cook it up, throw it on a bun with some lettuce and pickles and we’re good to go. Some weeks, we get fancy and sauté some onions. Most weeks we can’t be bothered. But every now and then, it’s fun to play around with the old standby. And that’s exactly what we did this week with these Teriyaki Burgers with Grilled Pineapple....

Sriracha Burgers

Sriracha Burgers » Emily Levenson

The very first time I bought sriracha, I had to return it. One week after purchasing it, I was diagnosed with a nightshade sensitivity, ruling out all things made with chili peppers. To say I was bummed would be an understatement. But I suppose I didn’t really know what I was missing when it came to the sriracha. Fast forward 6 years, and sriracha finally made another appearance on our shopping list. Only this time, I didn’t have to return it. Which is pretty darn fantastic, because I’m kind of obsessed with it now. I add a little squirt into ketchup for a little kick. I add a dot into...
