Allergen-Free Fruity Wild Rice Salad

April 4th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Shauna at Gluten-Free Girl recently requested gluten-free recipes that include wild rice. I adore the nutty texture and satisfying flavor of wild rice, and I immediately thought of this recipe–one of my first allergen-free, intolerance-free creations I made after I began cooking gluten-free, casein-free, soy-free, and egg-free. Then I thought, I should share it with […]

Allergen-free meal for potentially picky eaters

April 3rd, 2008 · 4 Comments

My husband left for Europe yesterday and will be gone for 10 days.  I’m happy for him, because he’s getting to visit Sweden–his primary ancestral homeland, and a country he’s never visited–and Italy (Florence!), where he’ll be presenting a paper that is being published at a conference.  He’ll also get to see our Dutch friend […]

Baking Recipe Success! (Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Cow-Dairy-Free Scones)

April 1st, 2008 · 16 Comments

Though initially it was overwhelming, I’ve tried to pay attention to what gluten-free flours bloggers and magazine writers are using and why they’re choosing to use those. Until now, I had not really felt comfortable experimenting much with gluten-free baking (beyond pre-made mixes) because when you cut out gluten, cow dairy, eggs, and soy, a […]

Healthy Meal Plan for an Early Spring Week

March 29th, 2008 · 8 Comments

Whew. I’m back. At some point lately, I started panicking a bit about what I’m doing with my body and my life—about whether I’ve actually learned any of what I think I have learned, and whether much of it is true.  Outwardly and in my routine, nothing major changed lately.  I’m now 15 pounds from […]

Busy Week’s Meal Plan: March 2-9

March 2nd, 2008 · 4 Comments

This is my menu plan for this week.  This week is the beginning of March, so it’s when I’m instituting the inclusion of a leafy green vegetable in my breakfast on a regular basis—I’m aiming for 5 out of 7 days this month. That’s my March new activity of the month.  With the addition of […]

Late Winter Weekly Meal Plan

February 24th, 2008 · 7 Comments

I’m still on the road to recovery from anemia, though I am feeling somewhat better and was able (yay!) to do a run yesterday without the deep, sickening exhaustion that had been accompanying my exercise. (That was my first run—a short one, just a mile—after taking a week off from exercising while I get my […]

One-Dish Meal: Spaghetti Squash Casserole

February 21st, 2008 · 24 Comments

When people tell you that spaghetti squash tastes just like noodles, they’re lying. Or their taste buds are off, or they have some magical way of cooking it. But despite not tasting like carbolicious spaghetti, spaghetti squash does taste good, and it is filling enough to use as a recipe base in lieu of a […]
