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 […]

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 […]

Green Garlic Shrimp Scampi With Vegetables Over Brown Rice

  Happy memorial day! My apologies for being behind on keeping my blog updated, but it’s been a crazy month here and I’m dealing with some personal medical issues that have temporarily kept me away. I’ll be back in action soon, but in the meantime, here’s a picture of a meal that my husband threw together the […]

Coconut-Shrimp Soup With Brown Rice

  I finally got the Nourishing Traditions cookbook by Sally Fallon this week! I have made some of her recipes which I found in some other books I have that she’s contributed to, but I am so excited to delve into this cookbook, which unveils the myth that it is unhealthy to eat animal fats (that’s […]

Maple-Pecan Pie With Sorghum/Brown Rice Crust

  Happy holidays, everyone!  Hope you are enjoying some good times and delicious edibles:)  I can’t wait to hear about all the treats and goodies and scrumptious meals you prepared.  I think my best effort this year was a pecan pie.  Not being an experienced pie baker, I decided to follow the masters.  I adapted Carol Fenster’s […]

Brown Rice Pasta Primavera With Basil-Pinenut-Pecorino Pesto

  This weekend was our housewarming party, and I was so excited to have a dining room where I could put the extra leaves in the dining table and lay out a good spread!  (Not to mention have enough room for guests to mingle!)  We had black bean & corn salad, a beautiful bowl of […]

Gluten-Free Brown Rice Lasagna With Sheep’s Milk Ricotta Salata

  Despite the fuzzy picture (my camera’s been on the fritz lately), this is the most exciting entree to come out of my kitchen in years.  I had not eaten lasagna since I went gluten-free and dairy-free four years ago.  However, I recently discovered ricotta salata, a sheep’s milk ricotta that I can tolerate on occasion.  […]

Vegan Date Rice Pudding

  One thing my mother used to make very well was old-fashioned Swedish rice pudding.  It was a favorite treat that I looked forward to around the holidays.  Of course, it was loaded with milk and cream and sugar, so I gave up on that idea years ago.  Until my mother came to visit last […]

How to Make Gluten-Free, Yeast-Free Sourdough Bread From Scratch (from a starter)

  In an attempt to cut my grocery bill, I decided that this week instead of paying $9 for a loaf of Grindstone Bakery gluten-free, yeast-free bread (which I love!), I would try to make my own.  I usually react to packaged active dry yeast, but I don’t react to the Grindstone bread, which does […]

Guide To Cooking Gluten-Free Grains

This is a guide to cooking all kinds of gluten-free whole grains.  Some work well as a side dish with a dinner entree, others are perfect for a hot breakfast cereal.  Most of these whole grains can be found in the bulk food section of your local health food store.  If you cannot find quinoa flakes […]
