Goat Cheese PenneBy DesireeGoat cheese and the use of non dairy milk makes this version of mac and cheese easier to digest. The use of either einkorn flour penne or brown rice penne pasta is the go to pasta for this tummy healthy dish.
Poutine For OneBy DesireePoutine originated from Canada. It's a dish of french fries, brown gravy and cheese curds. Here is my take on this Canadian dish using mushroom gravy and sheep milk feta.
Sweet Potato and Goat Cheese Feta PierogiBy DesireeThis pierogi recipe is adapted from King Arthur Flour. I made changes to the original recipe to make the pierogi easier to digest. They can be served as a side dish or instead of playing the role of a supporting actor they can be the star at your dinner table.
Butternut Squash Pizza with Caramelized Onions & GreensBy DesireeIf you like butternut squash you will love this pizza!

Heirloom Tomato and Arugula Pesto TurnoversBy DesireeThis turnover just screams summer. It contains fresh heirloom tomatoes only found during the summer and pesto made with farm fresh arugula. This recipe only makes 4 hand held turnovers but it can be doubled.
Amaranth Leaf and Potato SoupBy DesireeThis soup is filled with nutritious veggies, will fill you up and leave you wanting more! Amaranth greens is the starring vegetable here and you can normally find this green at a farmers market or Asian food market.
Radish TartBy DesireeThis recipe is a take off an Asian classic dim sum....turnip cake. The traditional way to make turnip cake is with a rice flour batter, dried shrimp, some type of meat and mushrooms. I decided to reconstruct this Asian classic, use all veggies and make a quiche like tart.
The Absolute Best Spaghetti SquashBy DesireeThis recipe is perfect for those watching their carb intake or are gluten intolerant. It's quick and easy. The only time consuming activity is cooking the spaghetti squash. And that can be very easy by just popping the squash whole in your oven. First poke a couple slits in the squash. Place the squash on a pan and bake for about 30 minutes. You will know when the squash is done when you can insert a knife into the squash and it goes through easily. Once that is done you're really for the toppings!!! Below is a topping recipe that will make sure you're spaghetti squash is the best ever!
Fried Yellow Oyster MushroomsBy DesireeThis recipe is amazing if you are craving something fried but without meat or seafood. Oyster mushrooms make the perfect vehicle for being battered, fried and treated like seafood. But don't expect them to taste like oysters! What you'll find is a chewy, subtle sweet, nutty flavor which will still be sure to satisfy that seafood or fried chicken craving!
