The herbs and spices in this dish bring out something amazing in the meat so don't leave those out and never leave off the special nut pesto sauce on top as that brings the dish to the next level! Everyone who has been a guest at our house loves the dish. Get after it and enjoy!

We spent last weekend in Portland, Oregon for my nephews wedding and had an incredible time catching up with family. My older sister who used to not cook or know how to really eat healthy until I showed her how easy it is about 9 years ago, has now surpassed me on many things in the realm of cooking healthy and I couldn't be more proud of her. It is so awesome to be able to share ideas and recipes with your own family and learn new tricks here and there when you all believe how important it is to eat clean and listen to what your individual bodies are telling you. Who would have thought that my sister would be such a pro now on knowing what to eat. This gluten free granola recipe is one of hers and it is the bomb!

Spending time with good friends is priceless and I cherish every moment I get to spend with quality people eating quality food! Brunch the other day brought some good friends together not only for me but also for my boys...time with the ladies while the boys had a playdate always works in our favor! So a nice grain free quiche was in order. I've been making this quiche for years! This is a recipe that I morphed from one of my very very first "Gluten-Free Baking" books that my mother-in-law bought me over 15 years ago by Rebecca Reilly. Its still a go-to book for me especially around my kids birthdays. I realized when the ladies all asked me for the recipe that I had actually never blogged it so it is about time. The crust is from one of my other recipes, the Paleo Raspberry Streusel Bars minus the almond extract. I hope you try this one out this summer and enjoy!

There was a time when my sister was on a bed and breakfast kick thinking that she wanted to open one so she had a knack of eating at restaurants and recreating the food that she ate in her own kitchen. It always amazed me at how she would pick apart a meal and find all the wonderful tastes that were combined to create such a delicious meal and then make it her own. This recipe goes way back and came from one of her creations originally called "Victoria' Monterey Eggs". She gave me a hand written note with no date but I want to say this was somewhere around 1998. I've made this a few times and each time a little different depending on the ingredients I've had on hand which is why you will see so many ingredients listed as "optional". I love the flexibility of this recipe and that each time it comes out fantastic. My husband loves it because he can have immediate breakfast to go in the morning for work if I make this on a Sunday. Serves 6.
