One Click Diet Changes with Cooksmarts

I’ve posted recently about food intolerances with my youngest daughter, specifically gluten. When I was navigating the transition into a gluten (and at the time dairy) free diet, I wandered into paleo. It was the easiest solution to being gluten and dairy-free. What wasn’t so easy? Navigating the endless pins and online recipes to find […]


The Best Chicken Biscuit Sandwiches You’ll Ever Eat

I’m not usually prone to drama, but let me tell you – you’ll never want to eat another chicken biscuit sandwich after you eat these. I promise. They’re going to change your life. This is a recipe that Mr. Garland came up with one night when we both were craving Chick-Fil-A but didn’t want to […]


Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

But, since she is eating and sleeping better now I’ve finally started […]

And while we tried many recipes from the book, one has stuck with us time and time again – her recipe for cauliflower orecchiette. It […]

7 ingredient maple mustard stir-fry sauce

Maple Mustard Stir fry sauce

I find many western “Asian” recipes are really heavy on the soy sauce – every dish at PF Chang’s tastes overpoweringly like Kikkoman soy sauce to me. So when recipes call for soy sauce, I cut it in half and I’ve done that here. I have Bragg’s Liquid Aminos on hand as my current soy […]
