Once you try this, you will make this over and over again!  I know I have!  It makes for a great snack!  Better print this out! If you love this, why not Like … Continue reading

Quinoa For Breakfast (And What is Quinoa Anyway?)

If you have been gluten free for a while now, I’m sure you know all about quinoa (pronounced keen-wah).  If you are new to gluten free or not gluten free, you may have heard about it as it has been in the news the last few years as a power food.  There is no need to be gluten free to enjoy this grain. (It’s not technically a grain, but it is often referred to it as that.  We’ll get into this in a minute).  In fact, I challenge you non-gluten free foodies out there to try it.  It has so … Continue reading

Jerk Chicken Rice and Beans

Buckwheat Millet Pancakes Gluten Free and Allergy Friendly

Making a gluten free pancake without eggs and milk is no easy feat; at least not for me.  I have been trying all sorts of combinations of flours and egg replacers.  Some were so-so and some were bad.  I even had one turn out fabulously, but I didn’t follow my own rule of writing meticulous notes so I’m in the process of recreating that one. But in the meantime I have settled on this one.  It does turn out every time.  It is high in fiber and a little denser.  It will not be light and fluffy and airy.  But I think that … Continue reading

Apple Pie Porridge

I have never been one to like oatmeal.  It just seems too mushy to me.  But I know it has health benefits like high amounts of fiber, little fat, and no sodium or cholesterol that I should be enjoying.  That is why I decided to try steel cut oats.  Steel cut oats are oats that have been cut, not rolled and I think of it as less refined than the rolled oats.  They are not mushy, but have some texture…almost chewy.  Cooking time is a little longer, but not too bad. But they were still bland.  I had to come up with … Continue reading
