Gluten-Free Mini Chai Bundt Cakes

With gluten-free cooking, there’s a common struggle, when baking items, it’s challenging to get the proper rise and texture with alternative flours. This recipe takes the cake. (Pun intended.)

Having people over shouldn’t feel like an endless chore and I know if the tasklist gets too long, I’ll stop hosting people as often as I’d like. To stretch a budget, this dinner uses common ingredients and a variety of cooking methods to elevate them.

Eggplant Parmesan with Italian Chicken Meatballs and Garlic Zoodles (Whole30 Edition)

When it comes to eating cleanly, I can handle living without sugar. My true challenges are letting go of carbs and cheese. We’re known for living off of antipasto around our house and it’s a guarantee that a charcuterie will be served at any given party.

This recipe is a lighten up version of an Italian classic, Eggplant Parmesan. By removing a few of the breaded coatings and subtracting the cheese, this recipe is the perfect weeknight dinner and can be made quickly over the stovetop.
