Perfect (&gluten free) Meatballs!

I've been quite busy lately. Big changes are coming to my little corner of the internet! These changes are, for the moment, mostly behind-the-scenes. There have been some pretty big changes in my life recently, and they are greatly influencing the direction this website will be taking in the (very) near future. Positive and authentic changes, I Continue reading the story "Perfect (&gluten free) Meatballs!"

Gluten free creativity?

I try to be creative in the kitchen. Well, to be more accurate, I don't try...I just do. It just happens, and I go with it. I have fun, and I love what I do. I enjoy myself. My family is quite used to this. They're also very honest when it comes to discussing a new experiment's success points or drawbacks. I don't always enjoy the Continue reading the story "Gluten free creativity?"

Gluten free? Start a garden!

20140124-120430.jpg

Gluten free? Start a garden. Not gluten free? Start a garden. Can you tell where my thoughts are, deep into January, the ponds all frozen and the winds still biting? Cold cold January - my favorite month to start dreaming about gardening. Seed catalogues arrive, and are soon dog-eared and marked up. Websites are visited. Seeds from Continue reading the story "Gluten free? Start a garden!"

Easy Icing for sandwich cookies, using coconut oil

1

20131217-155800.jpg This is my favorite go-to icing to make cookie sandwiches. It's gluten free, and can easily be made milk free as well, by using plain soymilk or almond milk in lieu of the milk. I use coconut oil in place of what is often used - shortening. Coconut oil is fantastic as a substitute, but if you cannot find Continue reading the story "Easy Icing for sandwich cookies, using coconut oil"

Thanksgiving Italian Soup – Allergy friendly

A leftover - based soup! I make some form of this soup multiple times each year. It's a great way to use leftover turkey (or chicken) in a way that is pretty distinct from the typical "Thanksgiving Day leftovers" taste. I love throwing it all in a slow cooker, but it works just as well in a pot simmering on the stovetop. Its fantastic when Continue reading the story "Thanksgiving Italian Soup – Allergy friendly"

Memories of my grandmothers, and potato casserole

I am obsessed with retro vintage sewing patterns. Obsessed. It is a relatively recent addition to the long list of my obsessions - and I blame this one squarely on the hard-working shoulders of my grandmothers. Every time I press my sewing machine into use (which is almost daily now), they both cross my mind. My obsession Continue reading the story "Memories of my grandmothers, and potato casserole"

Bacon-wrapped chicken & chokes

20131102-211257.jpg I LOVE fair food. With a passion. Unfortunately, most fair food is not gluten free. Recently while on a girls' trip to a fair, we discovered these tiny little yummy pieces of fair food perfection - and gluten free to boot! **NOTE: most fair food, even if gf naturally, is fried in the same oil as gluten-loaded chicken sticks Continue reading the story "Bacon-wrapped chicken & chokes"

Vidalia onions are in season! Also, if you're a regular reader, you realize that I love mushrooms. I decided to pair these two ingredients for a little bite size spring snack, incorporating almond flour and cream cheese. Because, well, I am a sucker for bite size elegant little snacks. I admit it! I've made similar mini Continue reading the story "Gluten Free Vidalia & Shiitake Petite Tarts"

Anellini pasta. Isn't it cute? Today, I am sharing a buttery gluten free pasta recipe with you. But first? Let me tell you about my kitchen screw up last night. Sometimes things just go wrong. Very very wrong. I spent hours yesterday preparing dinner for my family. I was pretty proud, as I've developed a cold since returning Continue reading the story "Simple Buttery GF Basil-Parm Roasted Garlic Pasta"

Breaded fried fish with mushrooms – gluten free

6

20120330-195442.jpg I need to go grocery shopping. In a bad bad way. Tonight, I just experimented a bit with what I had on hand and created this recipe. Nothing sparks creativity like necessity, right? Using small tilapia filets dipped in melted butter, breaded with gluten free bread crumbs and seasonings, and topped with sautéed chopped mushrooms, this was relatively easy Continue reading the story "Breaded fried fish with mushrooms – gluten free"
