The first time Ernie fed me at his home, he served these rustic roast peppers steeped in peppery olive oil with a touch of sweet balsamic. Roasted over a fire, redolent with garlic, and accented with freshly chopped basil, these silky, […]

I love my morning ritual of heating milk, adding a shot of espresso, and a bit of hot water. When I had to give up half and half, I needed an alternative. I’ve tried lots of coconut and almond milks and some are […]

Lots of restaurants serve sorbet—basil, key lime, pear with hints of coriander, lemon, lemon, or lemon. Made from fruit, sometimes coconut, and very occasionally chocolate, plus water and sugar. Sorbet is usually the only dessert option, other than fruit, for those […]
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 […]
Cleaning out the cupboards as I packed to move home I came across a bag of dried cannellini beans (among so many other things that will get left behind or given to my friends). Dinner was […]

This is our first, and perhaps only, Christmas in London. It’s dreary grey outside but the house is warm and full of family. With two daughters and two grandchildren here we’re having a cozy holiday filled with joyful screeching, heaps of wrapping […]
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.
