Gluten free, grain free, egg free, nut free, refined sugar free (everything) free brownies.

My garden is flourishing and the basil plants are doing particularly well. Hence pesto, gluten free, dairy free, chopping board pesto. A couple of years ago, I saw a recipe in the local paper for a chopping board pesto, and then just the other day, my friend the fabulous Patrick reminded me about making pesto using this method.
My favorite way to eat this delicious green stuff is on a gluten free (of course) cracker. Enjoy!

This recipe for quick and easy grilled salmon is based on Kalyn’s Grilled Salmon with Maple Syrup Glaze from Kalyn’s Kitchen. I find that her site is a fantastic source overall, and particularly for protein filled entrees. I had the pleasure of being on a panel at Blogher last year with Kalyn, and am looking forward to seeing her again this year. The Blogher Food Conference is less than 2 months away.
