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 […]

Weekend Baking

November 26th, 2007 · 3 Comments

Sunday morning, waking too late to attend church after not sleeping well, I took a few lazy hours to do some gluten-free, egg-free, allergen-free baking. (That’s the contrast between baking on a Sunday after a week off and baking on a normal weeknight: it felt lazy and enjoyable yesterday, not frenetic or harried.) I planned […]

Mind (and Rice) Expansion

November 24th, 2007 · 1 Comment

One great thing about eating gluten-free and allergen-free–yes, there are a few great things! Let’s focus on those, Sally!–is that I am not nearly as tempted to eat all the holiday foods that people have lying around this time of year. Brownies and cookies and cakes at work and at parties: I look at them […]

Success

November 16th, 2007 · 6 Comments

I love it when a meal isn’t terribly complex to put together, but when you eat it, the flavor combination is just heaven. That was tonight’s dinner. I started with Alanna’s sweet potato salad, which would let me use local sweet potatoes and local lettuce. You know how it seems like salad should be a […]

A tasty, quick lunch . . . and this week’s meal plan

November 11th, 2007 · 10 Comments

I wrote a post on another blog a long time ago about the importance of keeping staples for quick meals, especially when you are only cooking for one or two people. Some of the staples I like to keep on hand are these: nuts (pecans, walnuts, pine nuts, etc.–bought in bulk)–which I keep in the […]

Labor-light meals for a busy week

November 3rd, 2007 · 5 Comments

It’s 2 p.m., and I’ve successfully completed Day 3 of NaNoWriMo. I’ve written around 5600 words. I think I may try to pull ahead a bit this afternoon if I have time. (I’m anticipating there may be a day or two this month that I do not have the time to write the full 1667 […]

Soup like sunshine

October 4th, 2007 · No Comments

Sometimes in these days of food allergies and intolerances, I desperately want a food that reminiscent of the glutenous, eggy, dairy-ful food that I am missing out on.  Sometimes I’m happy to use recipes that are naturally free of all of those foods.  I’m always on the look-out for healthy foods that taste fantastic; boring […]
