Whatcha gonna make for dinner?

Sometimes the hardest part of making dinner is coming up with new and yummy ideas. So I decided the easiest way to do this would be to give you a giant list of meals I often rotate. Ha. I plan to post my recipes for many of these but for now at least you have the ideas all together and could always look up a recipe online in the mean time. If there is a particular recipe you want- just let me know! And yes I make all of these gluten free but you don't have to. :)

Woah man. Hungry yet? The cookbook pictured contains only a few of these recipes but is a great resource for new ideas to the allergy ridden folk.


  1. I can't wait for you to post pics and recipes!!! I'm super excited and very hungry!

  2. This is awesome! Thanks! You know me and Mikey have only eaten out ONCE in Portland? Well, plus two pizzas. But still, that's what a budget will do. Plus eating healthy to get fit after a baby. If you would have told me a few years ago that I'd be cooking every meal at home for three people I would have thought you were insane. Now I'm used to the planning and cooking time required. Seriously, Mikey's talking about briefs and statutes and things and all I can think is so first I'll make the lentil soup in the crock pot, that'll last us for four lunches, and then I'll need some veggie burgers for the other three days this week, for dinner we had spaghetti bolognese last week so he won't want pasta so maybe some roast chicken or pulled pork? But Finn doesn't like meat so I'll need some whole wheat pasta for him and maybe he'd like some avocado again. Haha. So this list will help a lot. Remember when you were first starting to cook for your family? I love ideas that work.
