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 […]

Baked Whole Rainbow Trout

  Last week the deal from the fishmonger at the farmers’ market was whole trout.  I had never baked a whole fish before, but I had heard that baking it whole with all the skin and bones makes for a much juicer, tastier fish (much like how meat cooked on the bone is the most […]

Pasture-Raised Chicken Liver Hash

  When I first started talking about eating chicken liver to increase my iron consumption, some of you asked for recipe ideas.  I had usually just cooked it in butter with onions.  (Which is great by the way.) Though this week the NY Times dining section ran a full feature on “hash” from upscale cooks & […]

Quinoa-Cornmeal Biscuits

    Last night for dinner I was making steamed beets, sauteed greens, liver & onions and wanted something else to complete the meal.  I didn’t want something starchy like potatoes or heavy like grains – I wanted something lighter, more of a comfort food.  I wish I could just whip up some biscuits, I thought.  Wait a […]

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 […]

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!  […]

Stove-Top Kettle Popcorn

  I’ve been spending a lot of time watching movies lately while waiting for my hand to heal after my bike accident.  One of my favorite things to do while watching a movie is sit down with a bowl of freshly stove-popped organic, non-GMO popcorn – complete with unrefined mineral sea salt and melted cultured […]

Low-Sugar Flourless Chocolate Cake

  I have to admit once in a while I cheat.  Never on gluten, but the occasional teaspoon of honey or sweet treat is allowed just to keep my sanity, especially around the holidays.  This recipe uses a small amount of unrefined sugar, and it is not dairy-free, as it contains butter – the only […]

Pumpkin Cookies

I am temporarily removing this post because a few days after refrigerating these cookies, something kind of unappetizing happened with their appearance….going to fine-tune the recipe before posting it again:)
