Traditional Homemade Granola, With Gluten-Free Oats

  Lately I’ve gone back to eating oats.  Gluten-free oats, that is.  I’ve written about oats before but it’s worth revisiting — oats themselves do not contain gluten, but they are often cross-contaminated with wheat.  So unless they are certified gluten-free there is a chance they may contain wheat, and therefore gluten.  There are a couple of […]

Apple-Buckwheat Pannekoeken (Dutch Crepes)

  Dutch Apple-Buckwheat Crepes   I decided to revive an old buckwheat crepe recipe which I make all the time, but my original post calls for fresh berries.  This is not really appropriate or desireable during the winter time because fresh berries are not in season.  In the fall, I like to top them with sliced […]

Raw Energy & Antioxidant Trail Mix

Angie’s Raw Energy & Antioxidant Trail Mix   In honor of America’s favorite junk-food holiday, Super Bowl Sunday, I thought I would write about a healthy snack alternative.  I watched the game today, and even though I was disappointed that my Green Bay Packers didn’t even come close to being in the game, I am happy for New Orleans […]

Lemon-Almond Dessert Frittata

  I just love Mark Bittman, NY Times food writer and author of Food Matters and How to Cook Everything.  The other night I was looking through my fridge (which was getting rather empty as it was time to go to the farmers’ market) for something to whip up for dessert, and all I could […]

Mayo-less Deviled Eggs With Capers

  At last I am finally getting around to posting my deviled egg recipe, in time for the holidays I hope.  Deviled eggs used to be one of my favorite treats, especially at holiday time.  But I stopped eating them because I try to avoid mayo, mostly because it is one of those processed condiments […]

Cornbread Stuffing With Walnuts (and Gravy too!)

  I never enjoyed stuffing on Thanksgiving when I was growing up, because it always made me feel so, well, stuffed.  Maybe it was the fact that it was always bland and dried-out, or that I ate too much meat & potatoes as well, or that my body was simply reacting to all of that […]

Blackberry Cobbler

      Okay so I’ve been on a dessert spree lately.  Getting ready for the holidays, I guess.  Though I’m saving the pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving.   Last week I went to the farmers’ market just as they were shutting down, and this guy sold me 3 pints of blackberries for 4 bucks.  Three pints!  […]

Walnut-Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp   When I was growing up, one of my favorite signs of autumn was fresh homemade apple crisp.  Of course my mother made it with loads of brown sugar, flour and butter – no wonder I was so hooked on it at the time!  Now I know you don’t have to have all […]

Easy Homemade Cashew Nut Butter

Sliced Apples With Cashew Butter   Do you ever get tired of stirring up those jars of cashew butter?  You know, when they sit on the store shelves and the oil separates from the nuts and you have to use a big spoon or knife and a whole bunch of paper towels to soak up the splattering as […]

Roasted Poblano (Pasilla) Peppers

Roasted Poblano Peppers   While reading the food & wine section in the paper last week I learned how to prepare the most simple thing – roasted peppers!  Poblano (pasilla) peppers are now in season so I picked up a bunch at the farmers’ market last weekend to try it out.  They were delicious, and so easy!  […]
