Gluten-Free Birthday Cake: Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Ice-Cream Cake!

SONY DSC

Could there be anything sweeter than my husband being 100% gluten-free solely to support our boy with Celiac Disease?  It’s been over two years since our son was diagnosed, and it’s been exactly that long since my husband has been gluten-free. He even brings his own gluten-free beer to restaurants. In the dessert world, my […]

Rosemary Honey Turkey Meatball Recipe

Good things come in small packages.  That’s what I’ve always been told, and that’s what my kids will always be told, too.  (I’m 5-feet, 1-3/4-inches on my tippy-toes.) Coincidentally, I love small plates and little bites.  I absolutely love a ton of flavor, perfect textures, and cuteness packed into one delicious bite.  This is why […]

Apricot Glazed Carrots

To be honest with you, my favorite part about the Jewish holidays — well, all holidays — is the food. With Rosh Hashanah beginning in two days, I’m still working on my small plates of sweet, delicious side dishes that will make up the main course.  Next up . . . . Apricot Glazed Carrots! […]

Roasted Cauliflower With Annato Seed Oil

Rosh Hashanah begins this Wednesday, September 28th, and my husband’s birthday is the 29th.  I’ll be celebrating both with some “small plates” and a gluten-free birthday cake!  Quite a combination, I know. In the food and restaurant world, “small plates” are essentially mini-dishes on small plates.  The idea is that a group shares several appetizers […]

Friday Flowers: Trumpet Vines and Salted, Spiced Caramel Pumpkin Gelato

SONY DSC

As a kid, I was always excited when October arrived, and a special, seasonal pumpkin ice-cream would arrive at our local Baskin-Robbins ice-cream store.  I thought it was so delicious.  And while I’m sure it still is, I’ve since learned a thing or two about cooking since then, and created my own — kicking it […]

Salted, Spiced Caramel Sauce

This weekend I’m serving Salted, Spiced Caramel Pumpkin Gelato!  Yum!  It’s all about using the flavors of fall. Whenever I make a recipe with many components, I try to get some of them done ahead of time.  So… today we’re making the caramel portion of the gelato. This is very similar to the salted caramel […]

Skillet Jalapeño-Bacon Cornbread Recipe {Gluten-Free}

SONY DSC

My cast iron skillet is one of the things in my kitchen that I absolutely cannot imagine living (or at least cooking) without!  I use it at least once a day — usually a few times.   Can one be in love with a skillet? (Well, I am.) In fact, I even bake bread in my […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Vegetarian Chili Recipe

I just feel like announcing that it is actually getting cold.   It’s beginning to feel like fall, and I love it.  I think fall is my favorite cooking season; it is all about cozy one-pot meals, warming spices, and slower cooking — things that make the house smell wonderful! I’m thinking this chili is […]

Friday Flowers: Impatiens and Lemon Coconut Muffins {Gluten-Free}

Lemon-Coconut Muffins {Gluten-Free} | cookingontheweekends.com

Why do we call muffins “muffins?”  They’re pretty much all cupcakes without the frosting.  Right? Right! I personally like to call cupcakes “muffins” simply to justify having them for breakfast.  After all, it’s a great way to start the day!  ;-) I’m calling these guys “muffins” so you feel good about serving them at your […]

Candied Citrus Peels

You never know when you might wish you had a jar of candied citrus peels in your pantry. Really!  They’re a fantastic addition to cookies, muffins, cakes, and even your hot cup of tea! It’s the perfect, somewhat mindless weekend cooking project.  After just a few minutes of work, the peels simply hang out on […]
