Plum Torte

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

Have you heard about this famous Plum Torte originally published by Mariam Burros in 1983 for the New York Times? It was so popular that it was published every year from 1983 to 1989, by then the editors felt it had been featured enough.  Apparently not, according to all the backlash they received, after making… Continue reading

Cornbread with Jalapenòs and Chives

Posted in Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

As the summer winds down, I usually do a mental inventory of all the seasonal foods we have cooked and enjoyed to make sure we haven’t missed out. With all the usual suspects all accounted for: tomatoes, corn, zucchini, leafy greens, and more tomatoes, I cast a larger net and discovered I had not made… Continue reading

Flatbread – Gluten Free

Posted in Appetizers, Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian by Pamela

You know when you see recipes that look so simple but contain gluten, so you don’t even attempt them because you assume it won’t work for us gluten free?  Well, honey this is not one of those recipes! This time luck is in our favor.  This flatbread recipe produces a wonderfully chewy, crispy, savory flatbread,… Continue reading

Focaccia with Ramps or Scallions

Posted in Appetizers, Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian by Pamela

We have all become so bored of quarantine meals.  It was time to make something DIFFERENT for dinner today. We were feeling indifferent with the steady staple of 1) some protein from the freezer or tofu, 2) a vegetable that has been resting in our cold garage that hopefully is not moldy yet.  3) gnocchi/rice/potato… Continue reading

Chicken with Artichokes and Olives

Posted in Dinner Party, Gluten Free, keto, Meats, Poultry by Pamela

While it seems I do experiment with a lot of different foods to share with you here, I tend to default to one, maybe two, recipes per season for dinner parties.  I prefer dishes that I can pop into the oven while guests are arriving. Some easy enough that I can socialize and enjoy cocktails,… Continue reading

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted in Dessert, Gluten Free by Pamela

This last week I attempted to create a go-to Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie.  One that you could depend upon, knowing they would turn out fabulous every time you baked them. Made from easily-accessible ingredients, ones that normally lived in my pantry and fridge.  That way, I could just whip them up at a moments… Continue reading

Seared Gnocchi with Bacon and Vegetables

Posted in Gluten Free, Pasta, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

I know there are legions gnocchi fans out there, sadly though, I have never been one.  If given a choice for a Italian carbohydrate it would always be spaghetti for me.  With spicy tomato sauce, carbonara, aglio e olio peperoncino, or just butter and parmesan cheese, each one my favorite. However my daughter sent me… Continue reading

Butternut Squash and Leek Soup

Posted in Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Soup, Vegan, Vegetarian by Pamela

When my daughter was younger she just didn’t like pureed soups.  I could never figure out why?  As she grew older, and more articulate, she informed me that she didn’t like pureed soup because every spoonful feels and tastes the same. Huh, who knew.   To get around that dilemma, I  found a few ways… Continue reading

Shrimp and Grits with Roasted Tomatoes

Posted in Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Seafood by Pamela

I want to share with you my latest food obsession –  grits!  Specifically white corn grits from Palmetto Farms, gluten free of course.  With little knowledge and no prior consumption of them, they are a revelation for me.  I didn’t grow up in the “South”, and have not even one relative that could lay claim… Continue reading

Caesar Salad with Bacon Tomatoes and Onion

Posted in Appetizers, Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, keto, Sides by Pamela

Many, many lifetimes ago my husband worked in the dinning room of a big fancy hotel.  There, they made a “classic” caesar salad, that he still maintains contained no mayo, mustard, and heaven forbid no worcestershire. Looking at the picture you may surmise that this is clearly not that “classic” recipe, with the additions of… Continue reading
