Another flexible recipe that will adjust to whatever you have on hand, but as always, the more colorful, the better-looking (for your eyes) and the better for your health. This one had: 1 cup dried black beans, which I brought to a boil with water to cover in a saucepan, over high heat, then turned …
This is the allergen-free version of Jazzed Up Banana Bread, as promised…. but first, a note on flours: I keep a variety of gluten-free flours and starches and just mix and match when experimenting with recipes. My general rule is to dump small amounts of several different ones — trying to keep a ratio of …
Here’s a simple, flexible recipe for autumn-themed quinoa. I was out of breakfast ideas and saw pumpkin quinoa on Pinterest, and that was enough to set me experimenting on my own. I’ve had horrible experiences with overcooked quinoa, so this was carefully watched. Bring a pot ~4 cups water to the boil over high heat. …
When we visited Lourdes in 2008, we ate a chicken dish at this restaurant, but I don’t remember much about it except that it had a winey sauce with a bit of bite, and that it had peppers, which I disliked as a child but now love as an adult. So when I was looking …
Salt cod is one of those things that have always appealed to me. There are so many things you can do with it! You can put it in soups, flake and make fish balls/fritters with it, make into a brandade (my FAVORITE, except the family can’t have it), add to a stir fry, or some …
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1/2 cup chopped onions 1/2 cup chopped red peppers 1 1/2 lbs. green beans, trimmed sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 1/2 cup chopped Basque/Bayonne Ham, or Jamon Iberico or Serrano, or Prosciutto Heat olive oil in skillet and sauté minced garlic …
A Basquaise appetizer that’s really easy to put together and takes no time at all. Plus, olives are soooo good for you. I inherited my mom’s love of both anchovies and olives . The hot peppers add that needed ZING. To make these, you’ll need: an assortment of olives (I got an assortment to represent …
Happy Feast of the Annunciation of our Lord!! We started the day with Mass, and hurried home anticipating breakfast, since Jenn tells us that the food most associated with this feast are WAFFLES. And I think our allergen-free formula’s finally good enough to share. This makes ~6 large Belgian waffles. They’re hefty and crunchy and …
[Note: This dish can be used to celebrate St. Cornelius' Feast Day on September 16. He's the patron saint of ear ache sufferers.] This post is for my cousin Mariel who requested the recipe for this. I had prepared it for one of our dinners around Christmas, when we had our mini-family reunion at my …
Another “convenience food” that my family loves, except that most of the family is allergic to cashews and walnuts, star ingredients in many of Larabars’ products. 1 cup almonds 1 to 1 1/2 cups pitted dates (we’re currently using Deglet Noor, but for previous batches we used Medjool — both work well) 1 tablespoon espresso …

Who doesn’t love Luna Bars, right? I would eat them everyday, but my family can’t. So I got to thinking — they’re really just rice krispies (TM) with a layer of chocolate or other creamy sticky sweet goodness. The sad thing is my allergy-sufferers can’t really enjoy them because these bars usually have stuff in …
Hi!! This blog post has been moved over here. See you when you click!
Well, that was a short conclave!! Thank You, Holy Spirit! I don’t know what we were expecting, but we sure didn’t expect the text from Pope Alarm telling us about the WHITE SMOKE!! We all rushed in front of the computer and forgot all about lunch. It was already a late lunch as I was …
Our whole family loves waffles. My personal love affair with the waffle started with the cheese-filled waffle-on-a-stick at our school cafeteria in high school. When Aisa was little I bought us one of those waffle iron – grilled sandwich combo makers, the kind that pressed the edges of bread together, creating a seal so the …
