Cauliflower Flatbread for the Lazy Clean Eater

The lazy clean eater? We are All About That here. If I can skip steps in my healthy recipes to save time in the mealtime dash to get food on the table before the tiny tyrant in the house has a meltdown, I’m doing it. This is actually why I hadn’t posted a veggie flat bread-pizza crust-tortilla-whatever recipe on the blog yet. Most of them seem to require that you pre-cook the…

Meat-Lovers Biscuits and Gravy

Growing up in the South I always had a curiosity about biscuits and gravy. I knew it was a quintessential regional dish loved by many, but I had only been exposed to it at hotel breakfast bars so it weirded me out a little. Lumpy white flour sauce with a few specks of pork sausage floating here and there, congealing slowly over hours in a heat tray. Sounds gross right? I…

Carmelized Onion Mushroom Bacon Chive Crustless Quiche

I know nothing about farming, but I really want chickens. How neat would it be to have fresh eggs from your own backyard? There are only three minor problems with my brilliant plan. First of all, we don’t have a backyard because we live in a townhouse Second, I understand you need a rooster to get the hens to lay eggs and the neighbors, while understanding about the occasional smoke alarm fiasco,…

Rosemary Garlic Oven Roasted Chicken

I believe you can savor dessert without gaining weight if you balance the rest of your diet accordingly. The Godfather and I decided long ago to focus our diet on primarily whole foods and I make many things from scratch for our home. We aren’t always perfect, but we do have a pretty great balance between enjoying healthy nourishing foods and the desserts and treats I like to make. For example,…

Clean Eating Cuban-Style: Slow Cooker Cuban Chicken

We are heading into our first “real” winter. The Godfather and I have never actually lived somewhere with “seasons” in the traditional sense. We knew rainy season and not so rainy, blistering hot, and the beach at Christmas – not snow. I really don’t want to think about that right now. I want to cling to the last few rays of warm sunshine, revel in the amazing fall colors and…

Basil Pine Nut Barley Salad

I went to a farmer’s market in Colorado Springs last week with a friend and her daughter. It was very different from my California markets with booth after booth overflowing with fresh local produce. In fact, there was only one fresh produce vendor and I was a little sad until I spied a crate filled with fragrant fresh basil. Basil is magical! By far one of my favorite flavors to…

Chicken Cheese Tortellini Casserole (Freezer Friendly)

You know That Feeling that strikes you on Those Days? Sometimes That Feeling is good, and sometimes it’s not so good, but recently in Godmotherland, That Feeling has been beautiful, and in turn, humbling. Remember last month when I shared my goals for 2014? I wanted to simplify so I could better appreciate the wonderful moments in life. I think it’s happened. I’m typing this post while baby girl is…

We’ve been all about mastering quick and delicious meals here at the Godmother’s house the past few weeks. Our little one is just over a month old and I’m realizing how quickly she’s growing.
