Gluten-Free Grains In The Rice Cooker

Until now I have been wary of using a rice cooker, because of the toxic chemicals in the non-stick coating. However, last week I bought a new rice cooker with a stainless steel bowl and it is changing my cooking world.  Not only does it cook perfect brown rice, but I’ve discovered it can cook all kinds […]

Chocolate Quinoa Coconut-Almond Bars

Thank you to all who posted website links and ideas for candida-diet recipes this past month.  I especially enjoyed the Ricki Heller blog Diet, Dessert & Dogs. Some creative and original ideas there!  It has been a challenge, but my husband is now in phase II (Woo-hoo!). Here’s a quick, easy dessert I came up […]

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 […]

Quinoa Flakes

  Dear readers, it is good to be back with you again.  I am adjusting to the new quarters and and enjoying the extra space.   However, I do not want to go through the process of moving again for a long time.  The issues we have had are numerous, and I have been quite stressed out over the […]

    This week I had house guests and we spent most of our evenings eating out, with the exception of one night when I roasted another chicken.  I had been looking forward to that for days and planned to post my brining recipe but with all the excitement of cooking for guests I again […]

Red Quinoa Stir-Fry

    Quinoa is one of my favorite grains, and a delight that I may have never discovered had I not gone gluten-free.  It is very nutritious, high in protein (it has all 8 of the essential amino acids), and easily digestible.  Not to mention that is is quite tasty as well, and very versatile. […]

Quinoa-Cornmeal Pancakes

Quinoa-Cornmeal Pancakes Another pancake recipe!  One can never have too many gluten-free pancake recipes.  This one I have adapted from the recipe on the bag of Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flour.  I use quinoa flakes instead of oats (which can contain traces of wheat and therefore gluten), and substitute soy milk or rice milk for the […]
