Ok so I missed getting this up before Thanksgiving but pumpkin is good for you all year long. It’s low calorie, low fat, full of B vitamins, beta carotene (for Vitamin A), potassium and fiber. It’s also smooth and creamy and the perfect foil for ginger, cardamom, nutmeg and cloves. Tess […]
Several years ago in early September I discovered Molino Creek Farm tomatoes — my first dry-farmed tomatoes. My Lord! I don’t know if I ever had tomatoes so red; so sweet; so seductively rich with flavor. At first I ate them plain, like fruit bursting with juice that sometimes dribbles down […]

Welcome!Hi! Join me as I chronicle my food intolerant life through recipes I’ve created or adapted, travel experiences, restaurants and nutrition from my newly found perspective.
Welcome to RecipesLots of the recipes you'll find here are things I've been cooking for years and never did contain gluten, casein, eggs, soy or yeast. Then there are recipes that I've adapted using gluten-free flours or dairy free milks and even things to replace eggs. The most challenging have been baked goods. You need to get from "Wow that's not bad," to "Oh my God that's delicious." I'm working on that.
