This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many … More 2013 in Review
I first tried muesli when I lived in Germany during college and it’s something I’ve enjoyed ever since. One of the most amazing benefits of eating insoluble fiber such as oats is that if someone you know tends toward high cholesterol, it is one of the few things that can reduce it naturally in addition … More Easy Healthy Breakfast: Muesli
We went to a local gluten-free restaurant the other night that we really want to like. Unfortunately, they just don’t always hit the mark and this time was no exception. They had a pumpkin soup that sounded great. However, it arrived looking very much like dark brown baby food. It wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t … More The 30 Minute Soup
Inspired by the pumpkins on my front porch along with a pumpkin smoothie suggestion from the Vega newsletter, I thought my post run smoothie could use a change. I will chop and roast my own pumpkins after Halloween, so for now I used organize canned pumpkin. Pumpkin is a good source of fiber and vitamin … More Pumpkin Smoothie Time!
I’ve been wanting to make gazpacho, not only because I have an abundance of tomatoes, but I’ve also never made it before. The night before I pulsed some salsa and with the water content of the fresh tomatoes, a few more pulses could have made soup. So after consulting a few recipes, I decided to … More Gazpacho with Olives

However, I was getting tired of chopped tomatoes in my salad. And I had a bit of backlog on the tomato patch because I was avoiding nightshades for a … More Tomato Season Strikes!
Although today was a bit hot, I needed (yes….I needed) to make my weekly batch of gluten free muffins (note I’ve tweaked this recipe to 50/50 almond flour and GF blend). And as long as I was turning on the oven, I could make the GF Peanut Butter Teff cookies and bring some to my … More Summertime Cookin’
I still had some teff left from my teff bread baking and wanted to see if I cook make it sing cookie-style. This was a darn easy recipe I poached off the back of Bob’s Red Mill teff but adapted to my whimsy. I’m still going to play with the recipe but am off to … More Playing with Teff: the Peanut Butter Chip Teff Cookie
With the warm weather finally upon us here in the Northeast US, I’m thinking easy summer salads and grains. It’s something nice to keep in the fridge so I always make a bit extra of a grain or rice salad, although this one was so good it didn’t last long. For 6-8 servings 1-1/2 cups … More Fresh Summer Quinoa
Remember that amazing chocolate pie I made from Gluten Free Gus back in February? Well, when I find something great like that I make it again and again. That darn dessert is impressive to bring to guests, have at your own dinner party and is just so gosh darn easy to make. But if you … More Healthy Dessert Options
