Enchilada Stuffed Peppers (dairy-free, gluten-free, Whole30, Paleo-friendly)

Trying to find a happy medium between healthy, Whole30 friendly meals and things my children will eat without complaining seems a bit like a full-time job lately. I feel like I've gotten back into a really good routine with meal planning and prepping, and for the most part, meals have been well-received by the Hubs and these boys of ours. Although, our littlest is in this "I won't eat anything unless it comes on a wooden stick or in plastic packaging" phase right now. (I'm telling myself we'll make it through this stage soon without wishing away any of his cute little two-year old quirks.)

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies (dairy + gluten free)

I've always been a fan of peanut butter cookies and oatmeal cookies. These Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies are the best of both worlds combined! I started making this recipe for my kids over five years ago. Though it has always been a recipe of very few ingredients, I've adapted it over the years to use certified gluten-free oats and coconut sugar so they still enjoy the cookies and I feel a bit better about what I'm feeding them.

Almond Crusted Chicken (dairy-free, gluten-free, Whole30, paleo-friendly)

This recipe is one that I first began making for my family nearly five years ago. Each and every time it's been a hit. It also happens to fit into our meal plan perfectly this month. I'm doing a Whole30 and, by default since I'm the cook, the rest of the family is to some extent as well. This recipe is easy to make, healthy, real ingredients and so versatile you can serve it with any sides.

Sausage Potato + Egg Quiche (dairy-free, gluten free, Whole30, Paleo)

If you're anything like me, having a quick and easy, ready-made breakfast makes all the difference on busy weekday mornings as I'm trying to get everyone ready and out the door. These mini Sausage, potato + egg quiches are just the ticket! They only take a short time to prep and bake on the weekends and I can store them in the fridge to have on hand all week long. Just reheat a couple and head out the door!

Apple Cinnamon Quick Bread (dairy + gluten free)

Updated 10-27-17
This recipe has been a family favorite since I posted in originally 3 1/2 years ago. I especially love to make it when the weather starts turning crisp and it begins to feel like fall. This is the perfect warm, comforting breakfast or snack!

Top 10 Recipes of 2016

I've gathered the most popular new recipes from my blog during 2016. I'm so excited to see all of these delicious recipes again, and all in one place! I reposted a few older posts with new pictures that skyrocketed too, like my Scarecrow Crunch and Turkey Quinoa Meatballs.

Fish Tacos with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli {dairy, gluten + egg free}

The best fish tacos I've ever had were in Florida, made with fresh fish straight from the Gulf. Living in the midwest, it can be hard to find really fresh, delicious fish without paying a pretty penny for it. I have been able to find some really decent, wild caught fish at our local grocery store and it is perfect for these amazing fish tacos!

Baked Turkey Quinoa Meatballs {dairy + gluten free}

I started making these meatballs over three years ago when I ended up cooking entirely too much quinoa and needed to find a use for it all. What I love most about these is how easy they are to make ahead and freeze. You can either freeze them before baking and then just take out what you need and let it thaw, or you can bake them all up, freeze them, and remove them to reheat a few whenever you need a quick and healthy meal.

Grilled Shrimp Boil Kabobs (dairy + gluten free)

Our summer meals primarily consist of either tossing something on the grill, or throwing something together quickly before heading off to games, practices, the pool, etc. When we can find a few free evenings to enjoy a slower paced meal, I try to mix it up a bit and try new things, but still try to do our cooking outdoors as much as possible. I can't stand heating up the house by using the oven or stove when it's already a scorcher!

One of our family favorites is a good, old fashioned seafood boil. We've gone all out with crab legs before, which can get a little pricey, especially if you're trying to feed a crowd. Every now and then though, we like to enjoy the food without all the fuss. I've done shrimp boil packets many times as well, but this kabob version is super simple and easy to prep ahead. While a full blown seafood boil is great, this shrimp only version cuts the cost a bit and there's no need to stand over a huge pot of boiling water to enjoy the same flavors.

Banana Bread {gluten free + vegan}

In the past I was never really a big fan of banana bread, probably because it traditionally contains walnuts (which I strongly dislike). My boys used to eat bananas like they were going out of style. However, they usually decide at some point that they're banana'd out and just stop eating them. Annnd, it's almost always just after I've bought a bunch for the week. I typically try and wait them out for a few days to see if they'll change their minds, but when they start to get over-ripe, I just toss them in the freezer to use later on. 

I've used our frozen, ripe banana stash for all kinds of recipes from cinnamon rolls to no-churn ice cream ("nice" cream, I suppose). I am not sure exactly at what point I realized that banana bread doesn't have to contain walnuts. But praise the Lord I did because now I love banana bread! If you are like me and just want to savor the warm, cinnamon-y, enveloping aroma and flavor of banana bread, this recipe is for you!  

(Note: I've edited this recipe from its original version to remove the eggs and added peanut butter. You could totally omit the PB if you prefer. Both ways are equally delicious.)

Grilled Marinated Salmon {dairy + gluten free}

I love quick and easy grilling recipes that taste so good it's hard to believe they are healthy too. We have been super busy lately and our evenings are hectic. I've been missing sitting down to dinner together as a family and enjoying good food and each other's company. We're nearing the end of baseball season so hopefully we'll have a bit of a break in the activities for a few weeks or so.

Our boys have started to become a bit pickier lately, but thankfully they still enjoyed this salmon, as it used to be a favorite. Buying salmon, especially wild-caught instead of farmed salmon can get really costly here in the midwest so I don't tend to make this recipe too often. But every time I do, it never fails that someone in the family wishes we'd have it more often!

Nog French Toast Bake {dairy + gluten free}

Updated December 27, 2015

I love making Christmas a special time for my boys. We do lots of activities on Christmas Eve, including sprinkling reindeer food outside, leaving our magic key for Santa to get into the house, and our Elf on the Shelf, Teddy always leaves them a special gift. Teddy didn't show up this year though. Apparently he knew that his shenanigans would be too stressful for us with a new baby in the house or something. ;) 

In the past I've always made pancakes or coffee cake for breakfast on Christmas morning, and felt rushed to prepare and bake that early while the gift-unwrapping is occurring. A couple of years ago, I decided to make something for breakfast in advance so that I could just pop it in the oven first thing and enjoy the rest of the morning with the boys rather than standing over the stove the whole time.

Grasshopper Pie {gluten free + vegan}

My apologies for being a little M.I.A. since around Christmastime, but thank you for hanging in here! What started as a fun winter/holiday break quickly turned into a sickness-filled couple of weeks for our little family. Shortly after the new year began, we found out that we are expecting! Our family of four will be a family of five in early September and we are SO excited!

I have felt pretty awful for the most part these past few months, but I am thrilled to say that I am (finally) regaining my energy and not feeling sick as often. Just in time for spring - thank goodness!

Ginger Molasses Cookies {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #eggfree #cookies #Christmas

Last Christmas, these Ginger Molasses Cookies were my absolute favorite. The rich molasses and ginger flavors meld together perfectly. I love that these cookies are not overly sweet. I adapted my recipe this year to be egg-free, as well as being free of the other top allergens!

Herb Stuffing {gluten free + vegan}

My Herb Stuffing recipe was my absolute favorite part of our Thanksgiving meal last year. I was pretty excited to make it again this year. As if it wasn't simple enough already, I have found that it can easily be made in advance and refrigerated until ready to bake in order to save some time during the hectic holiday.

Apple Cider Glazed Donuts {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #apple #donuts #fall

I've been seeing lots of delicious looking baked donuts all over the place lately. I decided I wanted to try some and picked up a donut pan for cheap with a great coupon at Michael's. I have the Wilton brand pan that makes six donuts at a time, but this one that has 12 spots would be so much better. I may have to get it too!

Roll-out Sugar Cookies {top 8 + gluten free}

Growing up, my mom's sugar cookies were one of my favorite treats. I remember making them at Easter, Halloween and Christmas with all of the cute holiday cookie cutter shapes we could find. They were this perfect, almost buttery consistency. Not too soft and not too crunchy, topped with a sweet and simple glaze of icing.

I haven't been able to enjoy those delicious cookies for awhile now, so I decided to use her recipe to create a version our whole family could partake in. With a few substitutions to make it dairy-, gluten-, and egg-free, all I had to do was use safe and trusted brands that are soy- and nut-free as well. Making this roll-out dough gluten-free proved to be a little tricky, but after adjusting the flour measurements, they were the perfect consistency.

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes {dairy + gluten free}

It's been quite some time since I've posted a new recipe here. My apologies for not being on the ball this spring. We've been swamped lately and it seems as though I'm constantly throwing meals together as quickly as possible in an effort to get out the door almost an instant after we've just gotten home.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites {dairy, gluten + egg free}

Over a year ago, I discovered a delicious treat from The Girl Who Ate Everything called "Healthy Peanut Butter Bites." (Check out the original recipe here.)

With a few adaptations to meet our dietary needs, this has become one of my favorite, quick and healthy snack items. I call them Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites. They taste SO much like cookie dough, it is just like the best part of making chocolate chip cookies (next to the amazing way your house smells when baking...) - sneaking some of the batter!
