Turkey Chili, and Other Quick & Easy Soups From Bone Broths

Now that I have a 5-month-old baby, I no longer have time to prepare all of my meals from scratch. But since it is especially crucial right now to eat nourishing home-cooked meals, the best solution is to prepare them ahead of time, so that I can easily heat them up whenever I am pressed […]

Roast Beef & Cabbage in Gluten-Free Teff Tortilla Wrap

  This is actually one of my husband’s creations. (I have been enjoying it up until cabbage went on the no-no list of foods to eat while breastfeeding!) A simple but tasty quick lunch recipe.

Lamb Chili

  I’m now officially 8 months pregnant, and I guess you could say I’m nesting. I’m not really doing that much to clean or prepare the house, but what I have started doing is cooking – and freezing meals for the postpartum period.  I have heard that broths and stews are excellent for promoting lactation in […]

Spicy Lamb Meatballs With Yogurt Sauce In Teff Tortilla Wrap

  This was a surprisingly savory meal I threw together this week. I have been eating a lot of lamb & other red meat to try to build up my iron supply, and discovered ground lamb as an inexpensive alternative to lamb shanks, chops, or other cuts.  I always have plain goat yogurt on hand, and […]

Gestational Diabetes and the Glucose Tolerance Test

Wow, life is sure getting crazy now that I am in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy. Thanks to my husband for taking over much of the cooking duty lately, though it hasn’t given me much to write about. So I thought I would share my experience with the standard test that is given at this stage […]
