38 Easy Healthy Dinner Recipes (Gluten-Free)

Summer has officially begun! This means I’m spending as little time in the kitchen as possible. It’s hot, my kids are out of school, and the beach is calling us—so….easy healthy dinner recipes to the rescue! Lately I’m finding that simple...

Gluten Free Mac and Cheese

Summers are not for cooking.  Am I right? The days are long, hot and my kids are only interested in swimming or playing with their cousins.  It’s hard enough to wrangle them to the table to eat…so the idea of spending hours in the kitchen cooking up new...

Pumpkin Spice Bake (gluten-free)

So you all know by now that I am not a chef. I don’t play one on TV, on the internet, or EVEN pretend to be one in my own kitchen. Nope. Not me. That statement begs the question, “WHY does Kula Mama post RECIPES on her website if she’s not a chef?” Good question. I...

6 Ingredient Popcorn Chicken (Gluten-free)

Despite my good intentions, there are nights I forget to plan anything for dinner. It happens. On those days I find myself rummaging around in the fridge at 4pm when the kids are cranky and it suddenly occurs to me that I have no idea what to feed them for dinner. Oh,...

Butternut Squash Hash Browns (Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free)

Spring is here (sort of) and I’m posting about squash, a winter vegetable.  I guess this just goes to show you how slow things are moving around here with two kids.  I’ve had this recipe sitting on my computer for a few months now.  Better late than never...

Sweet Potato with Greens

When all else fails, I go to the sweet potato because Kula Baby always loves them.  This is a great recipe for the young babies out there.  For older children, this recipe makes a great side dish.  Spinach adds the green, while avocado adds a healthy omega-6 fat.  And...

Make-Your-Own Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is a staple in our house.  It’s high in protein and takes less than 20 minutes to make–a mother’s dream.  We use it as a breakfast cereal in the morning and in place of rice at dinner.  Yeah, we sound like quinoa addicts and I’m not...

Quick and Easy Broccoli Soup (Gluten-free)

It seems odd to post a broccoli soup recipe in the middle of summer, but I hear it’s pretty cold in Seattle these days so this one is for all you mamas turning the heat on at night 🙂 We had a head of broccoli that NEEDED to be used tonight so I decided to whip...

Veggie Lo Mein

I’ve been playing the role of a single parent the past few nights while my husband racks up frequent flier miles for work.  He rests his head each night in a Weston Heavenly Bed, while I try to hold down the fort with a 2 and 1/2 year old who constantly wonders...

Chicken Croquettes (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

If there is one thing that really gets me fired up, it’s paying for overpriced organic “kid” food when I know I can make it myself.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the convenience of pre-made food when I’m in a bind.  We keep our...

Super Bowl Chili (Gluten-free)

My husband is always requesting chili on rainy Sunday afternoons and in California we’ve had a lot of rainy days this winter!  As a result I’ve made many pots of chili–some good, some not so good…however last weekend my husband told me...

Super Secret Pesto Lasagna (Gluten-free)

It’s no secret that I like to cook.  Cooking is one of my favorite creative outlets (and creating dirty dishes is lots of fun too).  Sounds funny I know…what’s creative about chopping vegetables night after night?  Well sometimes, when I’m...

Black Bean Tostada (Gluten-free)

There isn’t anything better than a crispy tortilla, chip, or cracker as far as my son is concerned.  So, instead of fighting his crispy obsession I’ve decided to start working with him in this area.  Hence tonight’s Black Bean Tostada creation. This...

Rainy Day Red Lentil Soup

Red Lentil Soup Recipe for a Rainy Day Sometimes good recipes happen by accident as this one did last night.  I had some leftover bacon from breakfast and decided to make Savory Split Pea soup from the Kula Mama website.  However, when I went searching for split peas...

Maple Squash Soup

I’m sorry, did I blink last week and miss summer?  Why does it look like rainy fall weather out my window today?  Here in coastal southern California (or as I like to call it this year: SEATTLE) we’ve hardly seen a glimmer of summer.  June gloom stretched...

Sweet Potato Quinoa Cakes (Gluten-free)

If you asked me to name the number one tool in my mama toolbox I’d answer you without hesitation: healthy homemade finger foods.  Honestly I can’t survive without them.  I feel like I am constantly battling with myself to stay away from easy-to-find...

Peanut Butter Chili

I was standing in my kitchen making chili last month and wanted to try something a little different.  Kula Baby isn’t a fan of tomatoes, they are too acidic for him.  While staring at my pot on the stove a little voice said “put peanut butter in...

Salmon Salad with Parmesan Polenta

I wish I could tell you Kula Baby eats salmon salad with the same gusto he shows Sweet Greens, but I can’t lie.  He usually eats the polenta cakes plain.  When I try to offer him a taste of salmon salad, he scrunches his nose and gives me a look that says...
