While I would love to evoke the image of Enya music playing softly in the background, morning sun streaming through the windows, table beautifully set for a healthy breakfast.  That’s not really what happens here early in am.  More likely, it’s a mad dash to get something edible, and, yes healthy would be nice, into… Continue reading

Best Gluten Free Banana Bread – Ever

Posted in Dessert, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegetarian by Pamela

I often lament here that gluten free baking is a chemistry project with some astronomy thrown in. Because, often it seems that not only do you have to have the perfect combination of flours and starches, but also the stars have to align for the whole thing to work out. Some combinations work, while other… Continue reading

Ever notice that food bloggers, specifically gluten free ones, fall into a few categories? There are some that post at least one week before major Holidays, with all the hard to execute Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter foods. Many a Holiday dinner has been successful thanks to them.
