For the hoagies:

Preheat frying pan over medium-high heat. Cut the hoagie rolls horizontally to open up and make a pocket. Add the blended oil to the pan and stir in the onions. Put the steak on top of onions and add 1/2-ounce of the butter. Cover the pan for 2 1/2 minutes. The meat should have a cooked appearance on top and rare underneath. Using a fork and spatula separate steak from the onions. When the meat is cooked add the salt, remaining butter, and provolone. Cover to the pan to melt the cheese. Divide the steak mixture among the hoagie rolls and serve. If you like, you can add the optional ingredients to the steak mixture before serving.

So I finally got my mom to email me her cheesecake recipe which is the easiest thing on earthand from the package. I thought I knew this recipe by heart but no… blame the drugs no seriously blame Gabapetin for fucking up my memory. If you haven’t notice most of the recipes on this blog is from my mother or for her. She’s literally one of the best cook I know other than my grandfather who recently passed. I’m more than happy that I’m taking over the title and role.

kwcheesecakeMy grandfather was a cooking in the Army back in the day and he took those skills by starting his own restaurant. I grew up eating the best soul food the state of Louisiana had to offer. Yes I know I’m a spoiled little shit.

Yummy Gluten-Free Recipes by Mariah Stuart


Written by: Mariah Stuart

WOW! It has been a really long time. I am so happy to be back on my blog, but so much has happened in the mean time. I am now officially GLUTEN-FREE :( It makes me really sad. I was having a lot of stomach problems for the past year, and finally doc came up with an answer. So my life is changing completely but the good thing about it is… bread is bad for you ANYWAYS. Just a half a week of being gluten-free and I have noticed a lot of changes in my body. I am becoming more fit :) I have a BUNCH of new recipes I want to post. I found the best sauces to cook with!!! I am so excited to share with you all.

The first thing I am obsessed with is… this pesto sauce. Ok…. So when I am craving pasta, I now cook with corn pasta and measure out about a half a cup. Literally all you have to do is put about a teaspoon of this pesto sauce in your corn pasta and its amazing. There are two brands of gluten free pasta I love. Below are pictures of the pesto sauce and pasta. Throw in some veggies to your pasta too and add a little salt and pepper.


1. half a cup of gluten free pasta (Trader Joes or Whole Foods)
2. 1 teaspoon-1 tablespoon of pesto sauce (Trader Joes)
3. frozen broccoli
4. a chicken breast (optional…)

This is such an easy recipe and it tastes so good! I love pesto so this is one of my easy meals that I love to cook now :)

Ok another recipe that I have been cooking are TURKEY BURGERS. I used to hate these things, but I have come up with a yummy recipe that I love. I am assuming this recipe is about 400 calories max but the sugar is low. So… here is what you need to make it….


Ok…you need…
1. turkey burgers (Trader Joes frozen sections)
2. Udi gluten free buns or you can use ones with gluten
3. peppers… onion (I am really bad at food photography haha)
4. garlic
5. salt pepper

How to cook
1. cook your turkey burger
2. toast your Udi burger bun or your bun of choice
3. chop peppers and onion… add garlic, salt and pepper and cover for 5-10 mins

So the trick is to put all the yummy sauces on the bun but keep the sauce amount to a minimum… don’t get crazy
1. half a teaspoon of ranch (I like Whole Foods brand)
1. half a teaspoon of pesto (from Trader Joes… pic is above)
1. half a teaspoon of bbq sauce (I like sweet baby rays from Ralphs)

I know that sounds gross but just try it haha. Also I like to add some peppercinis :) I love spicy food.

So add all the sauces to the bun, add the peppercinis, the onions and peppers and of course… the turkey burger! I am really bad at food photography but hahaha here is the final product! So yummy!


So for a great CHEAT MEAL on the weekend… try these gluten free mini pancakes from Trader Joes. They are so good. They are only 240 calories for 3 but the problem is the sugar content is 11 grams. So eat them only for a cheat meal instead of regular pancakes.


If you keep the syrup to a low fat, low sugar brand…. you can definitely keep this meal under 300 calories.

Ok so my boyfriend loves my baked potato recipe and it is very simple. This is the last recipe for this specific post… but here is all you need…

1. a potato
2. broccoli and cheese mix (Ralphs)


All you have to do is..
1. microwave your potato for 3-4 mins or you can bake it
2. microwave 1 individual broccoli and cheese packet for 2.5 mins
3. cut the potato and enjoy!

I loveeee this recipe because it is gluten free and the sauce is only 40 calories. I eat it for dinner all the time. You will love it :)

With Love,
