Eat Your Beans & Greens—No, Seriously, You Should Make This Recipe

October 30th, 2008 · 19 Comments

Ever since I first tried this recipe out of Heidi Swanson’s Super Natural Cooking, we eat it at least twice a month, which is saying something in this house where we rarely eat the same meal twice.  And while we don’t fight over the leftovers, the spouse who offers to let the other eat the […]

Pleasures of the Finite (and Some Tasty Cookies)

August 30th, 2008 · 28 Comments

One of the things I found most troubling after my food allergy (and then gluten & casein intolerance) diagnosis was the sudden difficulty with baking.  You see, ever since I learned to bake reasonably well, I’ve loved to do it—and not just because it provides me with tasty food.  Baking is a rare activity in […]

Tidbits & Questions for You: Food Allergies, Celiac, Health, Treats

August 11th, 2008 · 15 Comments

My best friend is going for a job interview in California, where I fully expect they’ll offer her the job (and that’s not just me being supportive–she’s just pretty much got it in the bag); she leaves on Wednesday. (I’m not sniffling only because I’m not really *thinking* about it yet.)  She’ll be staying in […]

Easy-Peasy Flourless Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies

July 21st, 2008 · 13 Comments

You may have seen an easy cookie recipe floating around the interwebs, particularly around the gluten-free interweb circles, that involves simply peanut butter, eggs, sugar, and chocolate chips.  I first saw the recipe on Mary Frances’s blog a while back.  I can’t eat eggs, and I was curious whether the cookies would work with an […]

For the Love of Wine & Friends

July 9th, 2008 · 17 Comments

Despite the lack of energy that surgery brings, extrovert that I am, I knew I would be seriously jonesing for some company by two weeks after the date, so we planned our fifth monthly wine-tasting party for July 6th.  Every month, I mean for us to take extensive photos of the food and wine so […]

A True Spring Dinner

May 15th, 2008 · 6 Comments

I worked last Saturday morning and thus sent my husband to the neighborhood farmer’s market (which is only held on Saturday mornings) to pick fresh, local vegetables for our week’s meals. He came home with several veggies, including a bag of lovely fresh, shelled peas. He had picked the peas rather at random, but peas […]

Allergen-Free, Gluten-Free Coconut Macaroon Pancakes

May 7th, 2008 · 6 Comments

When I saw Heidi’s coconut macaroon pancakes, I knew I had to try them. When my friend Les saw them independently, she felt the same way. We integrated them in to our simplicity circle retreat meal plan. When the time arrived to make them, we altered them to be gluten-free and egg-free, and we hoped […]

Creamy Wild Rice Soup from Super Natural Food

April 28th, 2008 · 10 Comments

This was the sequence of events: One of the other simplicity members and I had both taken note of Heidi Swanson’s macaroon pancake recipe. We decided to make it on our retreat. I took it upon myself to gush to the group about Heidi’s blog: the amazing photos, the natural ingredients, the quality recipes. Then […]

Fairly Quick & Healthy Meals for a Busy Week

April 14th, 2008 · 5 Comments

I successfully kept myself busy while my husband was gone (some might say overly busy), he’s come home from Europe safely, and he brought me gluten-free pasta from Italy! I hear it’s going to be fabulous, so I’m really excited about it.  Nonetheless, I’m holding off on using any this week because I’d already gotten […]
