Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie & Dijon Avocado Salad (A Healthy, Easy, High-Veggie Meal)

January 10th, 2008 · 7 Comments

This is a recipe I adapted from a Vegetarian Times recipe last year. The VT version was okay, but I wanted to boost the flavor quotient. As you can see, I used the staple aromatics I mentioned in a recent post to keep this healthy and make it more flavorful. This meal was a big […]

First 3R Success! Plus Reports on Other Recent Meals

January 4th, 2008 · 9 Comments

I just ate risotto leftovers for lunch–delicious. Here is the recipe for the pumpkin/spinach/cheese risotto my husband made for us, except he made these changes: He used leftover, homemade chicken broth instead of veggie broth; He used 2 small acorn squash, 1 small butternut squash, and 1/2 can of pumpkin instead of pumpkin; Rather than […]

Post-Holiday Eating, or Getting Back on Track

December 31st, 2007 · 5 Comments

As many people did, I indulged a bit over the Christmas holiday week. I was saved from seemingly endless co-worker-made indulgences, subcontracter/vendor gifts, client gifts, etc., by the fact that I couldn’t eat anything anyone brought to me. (My husband could, and did. We passed the rest of it along to grateful relatives.) But I […]

December 31st, 2007 · 9 Comments

Christmas and Hanukkah have come and gone; Kwanzaa ends in two days. When the holidays arrive, what’s a gluten-free cook/baker to make? Here are some suggestions to help you along. (Thanksgiving ideas can be found here.) Starters and Side Dishes–they usually actually take centerstage, don’t they? The protein is just an extra; the starters and […]

State of the Sally plus Still Sick Soup

December 28th, 2007 · No Comments

We got home from our holiday trip yesterday–home after having no real internet access on our trip, home after a drive that stretched to two days due to traffic, home with me still lingeringly sick with the illness I had when we left. And home after eating someone else’s cooking for a week. Our hostess […]

Kicking Off My Allergen-Free Baking Month

December 4th, 2007 · 21 Comments

As I’ve mentioned previously, every month I have a new activity to focus on trying. I learned about my food allergies and my atypical celiac disease this summer in the midst of . . . well, a lot going on in my life. So when I was setting up my activities for each month, I […]

Using up a leftover vegetable tray

December 4th, 2007 · 3 Comments

We can all use some lighter meals to counterbalance our holiday indulgences this time of year; that’s why I planned to have a (soy-free) vegetable stir-fry for dinner. Then I realized (bonus!) that I could use up some of the sliced vegetables that were sitting in our work fridge, left over from the party on […]

The Week in Which I Finally Get to Breathe (and my weekly meal plan)

December 2nd, 2007 · 9 Comments

In about half an hour, I’m leaving for a big annual event that I planned for my (non-profit) job. We’ll have 250 attendees and 50-60 volunteers present. Santa will be there for free photos (which one set of volunteers will take, and then will put in frames they create with the kids). Each of the […]

It’s raining! It’s raining in Georgia! It’s been raining in Georgia for two days! Yes, this is a big deal. For those of you who don’t know, we have been in the worst known drought in Georgia history. Our water source for Atlanta (Atlanta has the smallest watershed of any major US metro area) has […]
