GF Spice Muffins

Spice Muffins

B. was my helper today to make (okay, create) these muffins. We all were in the mood for muffins, but I didn’t have any pureed vegetables, apple sauce, pear sauce, or bananas. I usually like to include one of those for moisture and flavor. So we rustled up some coconut milk instead. The batch turned […]

Sprout-Purple Cabbage-Pumpkin Seed-Tomato Salad

Sprout/Cabbage/Pumpkin Seed Salad

I can’t believe how much I’ve enjoyed this salad. Yumm just doesn’t describe it. Layered at the bottom of the bowl is a layer of mixed sprouts (alfalfa-red clover-fenugreek sprouts). Next, a generous scoop of the salad I mentioned yesterday — shredded purple cabbage, mung bean sprouts and lentil sprouts, tossed in our favorite dressing. […]

Farmer’s Market

The last three weeks have been incredible at our Farmer’s Market, which until recently, really didn’t have much beyond eggs and bread. But a couple other farmers are coming to the market. We’ve brought home: plums, figs, pears, peaches, apples, sweet corn, green beans, kohlrabi, onions, broccoli, purple cabbage, heirloom tomatoes, and cucumbers. I’m probably […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

Update: I have remade this cake using sprouted spelt flour, coconut oil, and with Rapadura (evaporated cane juice) as the sweetener. Delicious! See: Spelt Lemon Cake. We haven’t enjoyed this delicious and very lemony cake since going gluten-free over a year ago. I miss it! It calls for whole wheat pastry flour. I am thinking […]

Freezer Storage for Ground Nuts


When I grind nuts — whether fine, medium-fine, or coarse meal — I do several cups at a time and store the excess in the freezer for use during the coming week(s). For some time now, I have been using quart- or pint-size glass jars to store the ground nuts, instead of plastic zipper-seal bags. […]

GF Cracker Mix in a Jar — Make Ahead or Gift


When measuring out the ingredients to make a double-batch of Cheezy Gluten-Free Crackers, I fill a quart size jar with all the dry ingredients for another double-batch of crackers. I store it on the door of the freezer. It is ready for me to use sometime during the coming week. I just transfer the contents […]
