A couple of uses for dill

One of the items we got in our first CSA share from Red Fire Farm was dill.  I haven’t really used fresh dill before, so I wasn’t sure what to make with it.  As I wanted to use at least some of the dill before I froze it, I started looking for suggestions. Someone suggested […]

“Mole” tacos!

After seeing one of my coworkers post pictures of tacos on Facebook (it’s kind of his thing), I got to craving them myself.  I don’t like using spice mixes for things like this, so I just threw in spices until I was happy with the flavor. I decided to add some chocolate to the mix, […]

I tried, I really tried…

Most of my cooking is done by throwing a little of this in with a little of that, so I often struggle to actually write down recipes.  And even when I remember what I’ve put in it, I often don’t actually know how much because I rarely measure anything unless I’m baking. So when I […]

Cheater Banana Bread

Sometimes I just don’t feel like mixing together a bunch of different flours to bake something good.  Sometimes I just want to put something together and then forget about it.  If you’re anything like me, have I got the recipe for you! This is the easiest thing you’ll bake all month, since you use baking […]


Restarted the sourdough starter using 100g brown rice flour and 100g room temperature Brita’d water.  I’ve been tossing half of it and feeding it 50g each of flour and water ever day for the past three or four days, and was a little worried yesterday that it hadn’t started bubbling yet. But today?  SUCCESS!!!  It’s […]

Sourdough starter, take 2

The first sourdough starter just wasn’t smelling any better at all, so I’ve restarted it, this time using less volume.  I’ll keep it smaller than the recipe I found recommended, as I think it was getting a little out of hand (and also expensive, since brown rice flour isn’t cheap!). I, well, started the starter […]

Sourdough starter

It’s been ridiculously difficult to find information about gluten-free sourdough starters on the web.  I’m not sure why, but I was researching this for a while before diving in. I found one recipe at Ginger Lemon Girl, which seemed easy enough that the only thing I’d lose if it didn’t work was a couple of […]

Chicken salad, yum!

I’ve been making chicken salad a lot recently.  It’s so easy to make, yet it’s such a great and versatile food.  We’ve had it as a main course, on sandwiches, and in savory crepes.  And you can make it in just about any variety you desire. The basic recipe is to take some cooked (and […]

Chicken good.

We’ve been having a lot of chicken lately.  Not your average boring chicken breasts, but real, honest-to-goodness whole roasted chickens.  “Roasted chicken?” you may say, “but that’s such a huge pain in the butt!  I only make that for special occasions!”  You would be wrong, though, because it’s unbelievably easy to make.  No really.  Trust […]

Pancakes… with a twist!

I was trying to think of something to use my homemade yogurt in and decided that I should continue with the breakfast theme and make some pancakes.  At first I was thinking that I would make some sort of topping out of the yogurt, but then I saw this post at Tea and Food and […]
