Garlicky Noodles (Gluten Free and Nightshade Free)

Garlicky Noodles | Gluten Free, Nightshade Free, Dairy Free

Whip up a soul-satisfying batch of garlicky noodles the next time you’re craving a little something special to eat. Hot or cold, this recipe is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. Eating noodles while avoiding nightshades and gluten at the same time is HARD people. I mean, there are recipes out there for nomato sauces (tomato-less pasta sauces), but every single one I tried left me tired and hangry (and left my kitchen a total disaster zone). So after two failed attempts at nomato sauce, I decided that I needed to change my approach to eating pasta. No more trying to mimic my beloved tomato sauce. Because, let’s...

7 Pasta Recipes That Will Make You Queen of the Kitchen

If I could eat pasta every single day of the week for the rest of my life, I would. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve tried. That undying love for the deliciously doughy and soul-satisfying noodle is the exact reason I wanted my first non-smoothie recipe collection to be all about pasta. In my single lady days, I was known to eat pasta for lunch and dinner for the better part of a week. It was cheap and easy, fitting nicely into my grad student lifestyle. Now that I’m a bona-fide adult, cooking for a husband and toddler, I’ve had to use my noodle (ha!) to expand my horizons and make something other than spaghetti...

Tomato Basil One-Pot Pasta

There are days (okay, all of them) that I am in a rush to get dinner on the table. Where I have approximately 5 minutes before a hangry meltdown transpires. I also typically have a little person hanging off of my body and/or wanting to help. Needless to say, most recipes I make these days are quick, easy, and something that won’t kill The Babe if she’s in the kitchen helping. One-pot pastas fit the bill and then some. I chop, The Babe transfers it to the pot. I continue chopping, The Babe stirs everything in the pot. I finish chopping, The Babe is busy smashing the tomatoes and flinging...

Lemony Lentil Pasta

Before instituting our themed menu plan, we had pasta once a week. And by pasta, I mean spaghetti with tomato sauce. The Hubster would occasionally add in some meatballs or ask me to whip up a meat sauce. Or I’d throw in some chickpeas. But that was the exception to the rule. Not that we were complaining about it. Because we weren’t. But every now and then, I remind myself that it’s okay to switch things up. To get a little variety and try some new flavor combinations. To flex my creative cooking muscles. When I came across this recipe from Edible Perspective, I got really excited. It was so...

Sriracha Lo Mein

Sriracha Lo Mein | Emily Levenson

I honestly don’t remember what life was like before sriracha. Okay, okay, I do remember what it was like. It certainly wasn’t as exciting. Or spicy. Which, in hindsight is probably a good thing since spice made me… sick. Maybe I’m just making up for all that lost time; relishing in the ability to load it on without any repercussions. (Totally.) Other things that I’m relishing? Broccoli. Sounds weird, I know. But it’s been finding it’s way into pretty much everything I cook lately. The Hubster is quite happy about that arrangement. As is The Babe. She freakin’ loves broccoli. If broccoli’s not your thing (which I totally get, I...
