Baked pumpkin seeds

Don’t throw them out! The pumpkin innards might be ooky and gooky but it’s worth digging through them for the seeds. And since you are making a family activity of the carving, why not teach the kids about a healthy treat? We used a cookie sheet with paper towels for the collection of the seeds, […]

Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest

I’ve been attending this gluten free food sampling Mecca since it started in Indy. In fact, when it started, it was not owned by Gluten free & more magazine. It was a local creation.

Sweet potato chickenĀ 

I love sweet potatoes! I also love that they are allowed on a healthy, get fit menu. They can be used in so many ways and are abundant with natural sweetness. In this recipe I tried something new, with what I had on hand and it turned out fabulous!
