Summer is the season of buying ridiculous amounts of fresh fruit from farmstands and roadside sellers. What to do with it all once you get home though, especially if you’re not into canning? With most fruits available frozen year round, it seems almost a waste to freeze or cook those precious fresh berries. A healthy […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

It’s going to be hot this weekend in my neck of the woods. This watermelon frosty looks like the perfect drink to enjoy in the sun! For an adults only version, a shot of tequila would go nicely in this also. Try this wonderful summer treat from Lunch Box Bunch! Ingredients: 2 1/4 cups frozen […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
This is a really easy grain free version of banana bread from Deliciously Organic, that comes out consistently and isn’t crumbly or full of starches like many grain/gluten free baked goods. I’ve made it several times now, both in one large loaf and in mini-loaf pans. This recipe would also work well for muffins, just […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
This is a really flavorful soup that comes together easily, especially since lentils don’t take nearly as long to cook as many other dried legumes. The inspiration came from the blog Delicious Obsessions, but I made quite a few alterations when I made it to give it more flavor, reduce the liquid and I found […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
So many people are finding that they have sensitivities to wheat and/or gluten these days, or they just find improved digestion by eliminating it (as is the case for Paleo/Primal dieters), that challenges come up when trying to recreate a favorite dish without these ubiquitous ingredients. Ditch the Wheat is a great website/blog for those […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I’m not convinced you need a reason to make this dish, it is so good. Seafood, especially shellfish, is a really good source of B vitamins and other trace minerals that can be hard to find in a standard diet otherwise. Be sure to choose wild caught over farmed for the best quality, although frozen […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I came across this recipe one evening searching for a fast bread to make to go with dinner that didn’t require yeast and multiple risings. It comes from an old American Heart Association paperback cookbook that my mom sent with me when I moved out as a teen many many years ago (copyright 1973!). I’m […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Since most of us here at Dinner Intervention are not original recipe creators, we always strive to give credit for the great ones we find, even if we end up changing them up a bit to suit our own needs. Unfortunately, that’s sometimes hard to do when we come across some gems in random places, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
For anyone cutting out or back on wheat or gluten, these tasty morsels are easy, chock full of healthy fats and fat soluble vitamins, and delicious to boot.

My family has given up dining out much, but I still get cravings for certain things that I never thought I’d know how to make myself at home. For example, ethnic foods. I love Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, but I get intimidated by some of the ingredients. Where do I get them? How do I prepare […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Possibly my favorite breakfast ever is a good eggs benedict, or really anything smothered in real hollandaise sauce. I’d always assumed it was beyond my skillset to make myself however, and many of the recipes I came across for it made a large batch that would be difficult for a small family like mine to […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
Whenever I cook chicken, it’s usually a whole chicken, which means lots of leftover meat. That makes meal prep for the next few days really easy however, and this recipe is no exception. It took about 30 minutes start to finish, and I’m kind of a slow chopper. This recipe is perfect for a […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I really thought I’d cooked potatoes nearly every which way there is: smashed, mashed, baked, twice baked, fried, roasted, smoked, hashbrowned and leftover-mashed-potato-cakes. They are cheap and versatile and way more than an “empty starch”, especially if you go with Yukon gold, red, or purple potatoes over standard Russets. If you want to up the […]Continue Reading...

Also, some great recipes! Here’s one I tried recently, and it was seriously fantastic, as well as super easy. I […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
My favorite part of Thanksgiving has to be the pie, and I make a lot of pies for the occasion. Invariably, I have quite a bit of scrap crust dough leftover. I also tend to make a few custards and homemade eggnog, which requires a lot of egg yolks, so what to do with all […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
