Edit: March 17, 2011 Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I’m updating and reprising this recipe post in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. It’s all part of our tradition every year. The Grandparents happen to be visiting this year and while everyone but me is still sleeping right now, it won’t belong before the kids wake up and head straight to the front [...]
Yes, those are little carrot hearts! Isn’t that sweet? This is my husband’s veggie soup recipe which has always been a family favorite. One Valentine’s Day, being the romantic that he is (cough, cough) he made it special for the occasion, turning the carrots into little love messengers! Since that day, the recipe has been known as Love [...]
Mushrooms are magical. No, not those kind of mushrooms. I’m talking about the regular ones.
Minced and cooked, these gems can stand in for meat, bringing an earthy, almost meaty flavor and texture that is way more authentic tasting than any processed soy granules. Healthier, too!
When I set out to make Chili last weekend, I searched [...]
Just look at ‘em. Oh, they taste just as good as they look, too!
I only tried Gluten Free Waffles one other time. They were a disaster. I resorted to frozen Trader Joe’s waffles for my Gluten-Intolerant Spawn when I would make the rest of the family the regular wheat-based waffles from my tried-and-true recipe I’d been [...]
I’ve never been one to load up my plate with all the various side-dishes at Thanksgiving. If I’m going to stuff myself silly (which is certainly a given on Turkey Day) then it’s going to be with only my favorites; Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing, Corn, Green Beans, and Cranberry Sauce. But there is one more player who always [...]
Wheat, Rye and Barley are to the Gluten Intolerant what Kryptonite is to Superman. (Don’t you just love analogies?). If I didn’t know better, I’d think this bread was on the Naughty List. But, just because it tastes like Rye Bread, doesn’t mean it is Rye Bread.
This is really my Mock Wheat Bread masquerading as [...]
Warning: After tasting this, you will never buy the jarred stuff again!
Thank goodness, it’s easy enough to make your own! Since it’s Apple Season, it’s inexpensive to make as well!
You might even be able to get some damaged apples for a song this time of year and since you’ll be peeling them, who cares about [...]
(Oh great – now that song by The Wiggles is going to be stuck in my head all day!)
Do you like French Fries?
I’m going to go out on a limb and make the assumption that you answered “Yes” to that question.
These are a much healthier and much tastier alternative to regular French Fries. We first [...]
Well, another very busy workweek is behind me, and I’m feeling the guilt of not having blogged since last weekend’s Layered Fiesta Dip. It’s not that I haven’t cooked this week, but I haven’t made many new things and certainly haven’t had any free time to talk about it!
Early this week though, before the mad rush [...]
It practically seems insulting to post this, since it is so ridiculous easy and has been around such a long, long time. There are a few different versions circulating though, and I am asked for this recipe from time to time, so I am going to go ahead and share it, in the hopes that some of you [...]
