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. Take a gluten-free teff tortilla and top it with some sliced roast beef and some grated goat cheddar. Place it under […]

New Gluten-Free Bakery In the SF Bay Area!

Hello readers, for those of you who live in the San Francisco Bay Area, just a quick shout out to let you know there is a new gluten-free bakery in town, Bacano Bakery. For the moment, they are only selling at farmers’ markets, until they build up their business and acquire a storefront, which will […]

Lamb Meatloaf with Basil & Millet

  Happy summer solistice!   It’s hard to believe but my daughter is two months old already. We are starting to get into a routine, I am getting better at multi-tasking, and I’m even getting ready to go back to work in a few weeks. Thankfully, all of the breastfeeding issues we were dealing with […]

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 […]

Brown Rice Bowl With Black-eyed Peas & Ham

Happy new year 2012!  Hopefully you all enjoyed the holidays and all the delicious food that comes with it. Maybe you are wondering what to do with all your leftovers. Here’s a quick shot of what I had for lunch today, made from my leftover new years’ black-eyed peas and holiday ham.   Cooked brown […]

Teff Pancakes

  I am always trying to increase my protein intake, and that’s especially important for snacks and breakfast foods, which are not always high in protein. In the mornings I eat a lot of eggs, sometimes bacon and sausage too, but also I want to choose grains that are naturally high in protein. One of […]

Persimmon Galette With Brown Rice-Cornmeal Crust

*Note: Because this recipe contains butter, it is not dairy-free. You could try substituting non-dairy shortenings such as coconut oil or lard, but results may not be the same. You may be able to tell from this more ambitious recipe that my appetite has returned! Though I continued to have morning (or rather, all-day) sickness into […]

No-Mayo Egg Salad

Here’s another great comfort-food recipe that is super easy to prepare! It doesn’t use mayo, which is on the list of foods to avoid during pregnancy, though I generally don’t cook with mayo anyway. A little dijon mustard goes a long way! (Recipe is pictured above on gluten-free multi-grain toast from Mariposa Bakery in Oakland.) […]

Comfort Foods For Morning Sickness

There you have it, the reason I haven’t been writing much lately, I am 15 weeks pregnant.  Now that I am at the beginning of my second trimester, I have a little bit more energy and an appetite. But until now, I have not wanted to do anything other than sleep, and the last thing […]
