Deliciously Stale Bread (& a BLT Salad)

June 26th, 2009 · 11 Comments

As many people have discovered after going gluten-free for a while, I have found that I don’t always miss bread, or crave bread, as much as I did when I first started eating this way.  I can go for a week without a bread-like product without feeling a bit grumpy, which often bewilders friends who […]

Wanna play in the kitchen?

June 9th, 2009 · 6 Comments

I’m spending much of my week creating five fall (yes, fall already in the magazine world!) dessert recipes (gluten-free, casein-free, egg-free, soy-free, with vegan options) for a magazine.  I need about five additional testers right now—people who can make one of the recipes as it’s written and report back the results to me by next […]

. . . And That’s Good Enough for Me

June 3rd, 2009 · 9 Comments

A few days ago, my husband tweeted, “If loving cookies is wrong, I don’t want to be right.” That man is a cookie fiend, but the cookies he was eating when he wrote that are especially delicious.  They are made from a recipe I created by altering a recipe I’d already created.  The first recipe […]

Health, Food Allergy, & Sustainability Tidbits for You

February 3rd, 2009 · 8 Comments

Return of the Lost: PF Chang’s-Style Orange Peel Chicken (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Soy-Free)

January 6th, 2009 · 12 Comments

The worst cravings are at the beginning.  You find out you have to live with food restrictions, and you can’t figure out what to eat because all you can think about is what you can’t have.  You create mental lists of lamentations in your head over what you’ve lost.  Your stomach feels hollow in a […]

A Belated Post of Thanksgiving

December 11th, 2008 · 11 Comments

You might think from my earlier Thanksgiving post that traditional holiday foods don’t do much for me.  Au contraire—one of the more difficult things about food allergies has been dealing with family holiday gatherings where everyone, including me, has specific ideas about what we should be eating, how it should be constructed, and how it […]

Peace Be With You (& Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Nutella Waffles, Too)

November 29th, 2008 · 18 Comments

My family is . . . complicated.  My food restrictions, for those who aren’t used to dealing with them, are complicated.  My emotions around Thanksgiving are complicated, too.  Thanksgiving isn’t always the best time of the year for me.  Okay, honestly, it’s often one of the worst days, emotionally, and has been for a long […]

Note: I originally published this post in April, but my friends and I have tweaked the bread recipe since then, so I’m making the changes and bumping it up for the rest of you to see. From April: It’s been nearly a year since I was diagnosed with serious food allergies, which was followed pretty […]
