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

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

Blood Orange Ricotta Cheesecake

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

For the last few years I have defaulted to three super easy desserts to serve at dinner parties.  If you entertain you know it’s more than enough work to come up with a menu, shop, cook a fabulous meal, and set a beautiful table.   Last year it was pears that I popped into the oven… Continue reading

Mussels with Chunky Tomato and Broccoli

Posted in Appetizers, Brunch, Dinner Party, Gluten Free, keto, Paleo, Seafood, Vegetarian by Pamela

With this hot summer weather, I think everyone wishes they were on the French Riviera eating moules frites while sipping rosé, am I right?  Not the usual mis en scène here, though.  I often find myself caught in an endless cycle of summer salads, which I rotate depending on mood.  However, I am really proud that I… Continue reading

Lemon Zucchini Loaf with Lemon Drizzle

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

Every year around this time, I get the urge to bake.  It seems like ages since I last turned the oven on.  Lately, it has been too hot to even contemplate any form of baked good; that is until this week.  Yippee! This endeavor dovetailed nicely with the banner crop we have of zucchini this… Continue reading

Charred Corn Poblano Salad with Feta

Posted in Gluten Free, keto, Salad, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

Most summers I tend to obsess over one specific salad.  A salad that circulates through pot-lucks, bbq’s or just dinner at home.  Last summer I made this Quinoa Lentil Salad many, many times.  The previous summer, my garden was bursting with vegetables, which inspired this Summer Squash Salad with Feta and Herbs. This year a… Continue reading

Shirataki Asian Noodle Salad

Posted in Gluten Free, keto, Paleo, Pasta, Salad, Sides, Vegan, Vegetarian by Pamela

Last month I enthusiastically shared my interest in Skinny Pasta, now one of my new go-to’s for a quick lunch.  As I previously told you; these noodles are virtually calorie free, carb free, no sodium, grain free, gluten free, vegan, full of fiber, oh and they come in different shapes too!  A lot of hype… Continue reading

Carrot Apple Walnut Muffins

Posted in Brunch, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian by Pamela

Last week, while perusing Instagram, my daughter asked if I had ever made carrot cake.  Well, sure a long time ago B.C. (before Celiac’s) I did.  Back then I could bake just about anything with success, regular flour is… predictable.  Gluten free, well not so much. I love carrot cake, it’s a great way to… Continue reading

Greek Shirataki Salad

Posted in Brunch, Gluten Free, Paleo, Sides, Vegetarian by Pamela

As you can imagine, I am perpetually on the hunt for new food trends.  Anything that can be adaptable here in my gluten free/vegan/sometimes vegetarian/meat lovers kitchen is a win.  However, it was my daughter who introduced me to Shirataki Noodles by Skinny Pasta- chip off the old block perhaps? Shirataki or Konjac noodles are… Continue reading
