Perfect (&gluten free) Meatballs!

1

20140305-150412.jpg

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"

Try this.

Just recently picked some of this (Fox Barrel Blackberry Pear Cider, 5% alc/vol.) up, and was pleasantly surprised. I am always on the look out for a new decent gluten free adult beverage to try...This one is great!

Roasted Garlic Potatoes With Bacon

7

I love roasted potatoes! Garlic is an obsession for me. And I love bacon, of course. So when my son recently suggested adding bacon to my side dish staple of roasted garlic red potatoes, I was all over that. He helped with the prep as well, sweet boy. I love hearing his creative ideas and working together to turn them into reality! Continue reading the story "Roasted Garlic Potatoes With Bacon"

Cheesy Tuna Casserole like Mom used to make…

20120518-194107.jpg

...only different. This is a very cheesy, very mushroomy tuna casserole. But first, the backstory. I kind of lucked out in the mom department. And I'm kind of kicking myself for not thinking of posting this recipe and story for Mother's Day. Why do I always get the best ideas after the fact? Mom and I, either Continue reading the story "Cheesy Tuna Casserole like Mom used to make…"
