Are you spending too much time on the computer? That’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. After reading this article in The Atlantic and finding out about this new site that calculates the amount of time spent on twitter, I’ve really been pondering this matter.
I haven’t been pondering it too much though. Instead, last weekend, I took a break and left my computer off for 48 hours. Wow, I did have quite a surprise on Monday morning, ... read more →

If you look on the upper right hand side of my site you will find a photo –and link– to my forthcoming book, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. You can pre-order order it by clicking on the book cover image in the sidebar to the right, which takes you over to amazon.com.
I have been working on the book for the past 8 months, well, actually the past 10 years, that’s when I really began cooking and writing down my recipes ... read more →

The other night while I was tucking in my super snuggly 10 year old into bed, we discussed possibilities for the next night’s dinner.
“Fennel” he suggested, “I really like it because it’s sweet and also very healthy!”
“What would you like for our protein dish?” I asked. “What about that roasted chicken I made the other night that you guys gobbled up?”
“No, something else, something sweet and sour,” he replied.
“Ok,” I said. “What about agave lime chicken?”
“Yum! That sounds great.” my ... read more →

For those of you that have been asking about classes, I will be teaching at the Culinary School of the Rockies on January 26, 2009.
In this class titled, “The Art of Gluten-Free Baking,” we will learn how to make classic desserts the gluten-free way. Fun and easy dishes will include chocolate chip cookies, double chocolate brownies, currant scones and apple crisp. I took a class at CSR a couple of weeks ago and had a great time in their gorgeous ... read more →

Leftover turkey? I opened the fridge this morning and noticed I still had a pile of cooked bird from Thanksgiving. While I am more than happy to have a surplus of food during these times, I must admit, I was perplexed as to what to do with it.
Turkey chili of course. Here’s a recipe that I threw together, literally, in the crockpot. Feel free to adapt this chili to your liking and make it up as you go along, like ... read more →

It’s too darn hot here to turn on the oven; the high today is supposed to get up to 100°. The solution? Fire up the grill and throw on some chicken breasts ever so briefly. The mustard lime chicken pictured above is a tangy hit of protein on a hot summer’s day.
I hope it cools off a bit tomorrow as my son plays in the finals of the little league tournament. His team (the “B” team ... read more →

My favorite thing about the picture above? The cilantro on the Mango Chicken and in the glass cup is from my garden. Now, that’s something to get pumped about considering I barely have a yard. And what little yard I do have is taken over by a trampoline for the boys.
We live close to town which was really important to me after living in Manhattan for 17 years. I wanted to be able to walk to ... read more →

I have to give full credit for this photo of Thai Chicken Soup to my boys. They helped me stage the shot and then sat with me at the computer to crop and size the photo. They are becoming such little artists, having far surpassed me in this arena.
The delicious Thai soup above is based on a recipe from Cook’s Illustrated. My friend Deb got me hooked on this magazine last year when she gave me a ... read more →

I have discovered a great new website, myfeasts.com. I found it through tastespotting.com, my all time favorite site. If you ever find yourself in a “dinner quandary,” I highly recommend a visit to tastespotting; the photos are gorgeous and provide much meal planning inspiration!
Alas, I digress, this post is about myfeasts.blogspot.com. The site is a bit of a mystery, as I could not find an “about” page. Was I just missing it? Or is ... read more →

It’s been almost a week since I last posted something here. It seems my entire family has gone into retrograde and I have been nursing everyone back to health for the last month –including myself. The nasty flu that blew through Colorado had me down for ten days straight. I haven’t had one that bad for quite a long time.
On a food note, I continue to be inspired by Elise over at simplyrecipes.com. Last week she posted a delicious ... read more →

UPDATE: please visit my updated Thanksgiving Day recipes post for 2008.
Thanksgiving. I find it challenging to write the word without giving some sort of gratitude. Each year, before we partake in our Thanksgiving feast, we go around the table and take the time to say a few words of gratitude, stating our thanks for things such as the food at the table, good friends and the roof over our head.
Thanksgiving and autumn in general seem to be such a good ... read more →

During this time of year I make gravy on a weekly basis. When the cold, damp weather sets in, rich, warm, gravy makes for a delicious comfort food smothered over roasted chicken or turkey.
4 cups chicken stock
poultry gizzards (optional)
2 medium onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 tablespoon kudzu
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
In a medium saucepan bring stock, gizzards, onions and garlic to a boil
Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until onions are soft
Add drippings from roasting ... read more →

This week, I have been testing the Thanksgiving menu that I shared with those of you signed up for my newsletter. We had almost a full Thanksgiving dinner last Wednesday and leftovers Thursday and Friday. Needless to say, my husband was not too thrilled with eating turkey 3 nights in a row just a week before Thanksgiving.
Below is the turkey recipe I used for our pre-Thanksgiving feast. I will make it again this Thursday for the real turkey day. ... read more →

Every Friday night, I roast a chicken. My children are willing to consume any chicken dish as long as it contains fruit. Such is our unspoken agreement.
This past week, I used apples to lure my children to their protein dish. The combination of rosemary with apples was a natural pairing and the balsamic vinegar, which caramelized during roasting, sweetly permeated the entire chicken.
As I served this up to my family and asked how they liked it, my younger son ... read more →

Fall is a full time of year; especially for a Jewish family with children in a Waldorf school. Last week we celebrated Rosh Hashannah (Jewish New Year), yesterday was Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and this coming Friday is Succot, the fall harvest festival celebrating the bounty provided to the Jews during 40 years wandering the dessert after the Exodus from Egypt. Whew.
During this time of year the Jewish holidays come unremittingly, like waves beating against the shore, ... read more →

Tonight’s project was a gluten free chicken salad with almonds.
Even though the days of August are long and hot, the month seems to speed by every year, and this year has been no different.
Today the boys started school and my older son had his first viola lesson. He locked the viola case to keep his little brother out. When we arrived at the lesson, he realized that he had forgotten the key, leaving it at home in its “secret ... read more →

Each year my husband requests a special dish for his birthday. Last year it was chicken parmigiano.
Classic chicken parmesan goes gluten free when chicken breasts are coated in almond flour. This chicken recipe can be a staple in every gluten free chefs repertoire.
Even though we are on different diets, in my home we partake in one family meal. This way, we come together energetically – we share the same space, breathe the same air and eat the same food.

You missed the Orange Ginger Chicken…
This Paleo/primal-friendly Orange Ginger Chicken recipe is a great way to roast an entire chicken. The recipe is also child friendly –Orange Ginger Chicken is my younger son’s all time favorite dinner recipe.
My husband called and said he had to work late tonight. However, the boys and I were much too hungry to wait. So, before we ate, I snapped a photo of dinner and emailed it to him. I kept a plate ... read more →
