Book Review: The Complete Allergy-Free Comfort Foods Cookbook

I have really enjoyed Elizabeth Gordon’s cookbooks, as I explore more possibilities for cooking gluten-free/vegan/allergy-friendly. Her 2012 cookbook, The Complete Allergy-Free Comfort Foods Cookbook: Every Recipe Is Free of Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Nuts, and Eggs, is a great read, especially if you have anyone in your household with severe food allergies. The wide range of […]

Book Review: Outside The Lines

The PR pitch was that children would enjoy coloring Outside the Lines: An Artists’ Coloring Book for Giant Imaginations. Kids? Pfffttt! How about me. Hehehe. My Mom loved to color with me when I was little. She would lay on the floor and patiently color, while I had the patience of a squirrel, unable to […]

This and That…..

Is it just me or is summer slipping by too fast this year? I have noticed maple leaves falling already and a few of my blueberry bushes are turning flame colors. But it has been nice and I won’t complain. The highlight this week was playing bike shop and dusting off my bike. Kirk got […]

Sunflower & Peach Jam Quinoa Donuts

I was excited to have an idea for a treat that Alistaire could enjoy: gluten-free, nut and peanut free, egg free – well you know the spiel. Quinoa flour is one I work with only here and there, it has a pretty strong flavor so I usually avoid it when baking, unless it is a […]

Coleslaw So Freaky Good

Like how often does anyone praise coleslaw? It’s the third rung dish that shows up at BBQ’s and potlucks. And honestly, it is too much chewing and usually bathed in a bath of mayo. None of which is good – to me. (Well, there is its even yuckier cousin…the carrot-raisins salad that is bathed in […]

Gluten-Free Fresh Peach Cobbler

I hit the sweet spot with this recipe – soft, sweet peaches, fluffy cake, all mingled together. And I helped empty my box of peaches a bit more…. Alistaire happily enjoyed the treat (and so did we all!). I figured if my little man did his first real hike (he did nearly 1/2 a mile […]

Gingered Peach Refrigerator Jam drizzled over Peach Ice Cream

Someone bought a 25 pound box of class 2 peaches at the farmers markets this past weekend.  (What is class 2? Just the not so pretty ones – which honestly I could see no difference outside of some scars on the peels – you get 5 pounds more for $5 less than class 1.) Buying […]
