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 […]

Weekly Meal Plan As Fall Dips Into Winter

November 26th, 2007 · 15 Comments

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 […]

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 […]

Honey Mustard & Veggies: The Baked Potato of the Week

November 23rd, 2007 · 4 Comments

Yep, I’m still in love with having a baked potato for dinner once a week. Last week (which seems so very long ago right now), my simplicity group took on the baked potato theme. Our host for the evening slow-baked the potatoes per my instructions, and the rest of us brought toppings: cheddar, soft goat […]

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 […]

Roasted Veggies & Pan-Fried Goat Cheese Salad

November 7th, 2007 · 8 Comments

This salad was a staple in our house last fall and winter, but things have changed since then. One thing that’s changed is that my body can now tolerate balsamic vinegar as long as it’s not in large doses; that means I’m able to add it to things like these veggies that I roasted. Another […]

There’s nothing in this world like a good baked potato

October 23rd, 2007 · 13 Comments

. . . and Alanna at A Veggie Venture has the secret: it’s baking the potato for a long period of time. That’s it? Yep. Well, baking it for a long period of time after giving it a simple treatment of olive oil (I added kosher salt to my rub) and then baking it directly […]
