DIY Gluten-Free Mix™ — Cornbread Mix

Cornbread is what is called a quick bread.  It doesn’t require any special skills or any special pans.  Cornbread is a wonderful place to begin to learn how to bake gluten-free for so many reasons.  As its name implies, there is no yeast in a quick bread recipe and so no time for rising.  Temperature […]

Sweet & Spicy Baked Shrimp Tacos

Start the new year off right with a flavorful, though light, dinner of sweet & spicy shrimp tacos.  The holidays are over, and I’m ready for lighter dinners to recover from all the socializing I did.  I had never had fish or shrimp tacos until I moved to California in the late 1990’s.  At that […]

Tomato, White Bean and Basil Casserole–Another Harvest Recipe

One of the best things about the end of Summer is the harvest of wonderful, flavorful tomatoes available.  If you grow your own or buy them at a farmers market, you can’t beat the flavor of fresh- from-the-garden tomatoes.  Usually I have such a bounty from my garden that I am looking for new ways […]

Spaetzle, an easy German Egg Noodle

My mother’s mother was of German descent. In fact, my mother spoke German as a child.  She had to learn to speak English to be able to go to school!  I was an adult before I knew this about her.  Unfortunately, I never knew my grandmother.  She died when I was a baby.  I did […]

Beer Bread with Cheddar Cheese and Dill

It’s still winter where we live, and we had a dusting of snow the other day.  Not quite time to rejoice in the warming trends.  We all know there is another cold snap waiting around the corner–just after I get started gardening.  It is so hard to remember it is still February.  That said, I […]
