Polenta and Ragu Replication

There is this restaurant a few of my friends love to go to for lunch. It was also one of my fav places until changing my diet. They make the best pizzas ever. Ever. Unfortunately they are one of those restaurants that refuses to offer gluten free options. And every time I go in there … Continue reading

It’s been a while…

It’s been over two months since my last post. I had intentions of posting a lot leading up to the holidays but we had a very difficult family situation come up and I just couldn’t find it in me to blog, let alone cook.  It took me until recently to get back into the swing … Continue reading

Mom’s Thanksgiving Turkey Stuffing

Mom’s Thanksgiving Turkey Stuffing

It’s the time of year where the weather is cool and crisp (except in Texas where it’s just cooling down), you start seeing Christmas adds everywhere, and you start to think about what your Thanksgiving plans are.  For me, it’ll be a pretty low-key Turkey day this year.  We’ll go visit some family the Saturday after … Continue reading

Dinner and dessert

No recipes in this blog, sorry. I didn’t even think about writing down what I did today when I put together the marinade for the flank steak. I was in a post-reflexology zone. Body and mind were relaxed, and slightly hungry. So I threw together the steak marinade, got it in the fridge to get … Continue reading

Beware of the scrambled egg???

Beware of the scrambled egg???

Hubby and I traveled to Colorado over the Labor Day Holiday for a friends wedding.  We flew in a day early so we could explore Denver and spend some time in the city before heading up to Fort Collins for the wedding weekend.  We had a lovely time in Denver, despite their “heat wave,” and … Continue reading

Zucchini Bread *updated!*

Zucchini Bread *updated!*

I did a lot of reading on a lot of different gluten free blogs yesterday all in my quest to come up with a great g-free flour blend, and I think I accomplished that goal! There are so many differing opinions on what is the best blend and what ratio of starches to flours, and … Continue reading

Gluten-Free FDA Labeling Standards…. FINALLY!

FINALLY! The FDA has finally decided to actually set standards for gluten-free labeling. YAY!  Here’s a link to the article from CNN, but here’s the standards as outlined on CNN by the FDA: Foods that inherently do not contain gluten (i.e. raw carrots or grapefruit juice) may use the “gluten-free” claim. Foods with any whole, … Continue reading

Chocolate Crepes – Gluten and Sugar Free!

Chocolate Crepes – Gluten and Sugar Free!

That’s right my friends. I have developed an amazing gluten and sugar free chocolate crepe recipe that is AMAZING! It tastes so much better than pretty much all of the other crepe recipes I have tried. And I tried a bunch. Whoever thinks that Gluten Free flour blends make delicious cakes and treats is lying. … Continue reading

Honey Thyme Pork Loin Roast

Honey Thyme Pork Loin Roast

Y’all, I had never made a Pork Loin Roast before until last week. I have done pork tenderloins, chops, thin cuts, and ribs, but never a Pork Loin Roast.  The best part of about that delicious center cut piece of meat was how inexpensive it was! I’m telling you, I’m going to be buying and … Continue reading
