    on Jan 1, 2012 in Party Flax Holiday Dessert comfort food
    Last night I went to a New Years Eve party and wanted to bring brownies. Since I knew there would be numerous, yummy chocolaty choices, I decided to do something different. I am a fan of dark chocolate candy bars spiced with hot peppers and this was...
  • Pumpkin SconesI LOVE pumpkin! During Fall and Winter, I crave the yumminess of pumpkin. Although I love savory pumpkin dishes such as Thai curry or Caribbean soup, to me the ultimate pumpkin experience comes from a little added sugar! Another ingredient, which com...

  • Seitan Holiday RoastThis is one of my favorite versions of seitan. It is time consuming, so I don't make it very often. I call it a "holiday roast", because I tend to make it for special occasions. However, it is a great recipe to make any time of the year. The seitan c...

  • Whole Wheat - Flax Bread (Using A Bread Maker)
    on Sep 7, 2009 in Flax Bread gluten
    My Mother-in-law gave me an awesome bread maker a couple of years ago for Christmas. I've attempted making bread a handful of times with the machine, but the result was always dry. I finally pin pointed some of my problems and I hope you can learn...

  • Banana Coconut Tapioca Pudding
    on Sep 5, 2009 in Dessert comfort food
    It is official.....I am a coconut! If you are what you eat, this summer I've gone from being a "nut" to a full fledged "coconut." I LOVE using Bob's Red Mill's raw shredded coconut and/or canned coconut milk (Trader Joe's has a great "light" version...
  • Baked PastaI know, I know.....I haven't updated my blog for a LONG while! During the warmer months, I've been making a lot of cold dishes. I've hosted and attended several gatherings over the last few months, where I've been able to share my new cold/room tempe...

    on May 29, 2009 in Breakfast Bread Dessert
    Ok, the name is weird - Pancake Bread! I wanted to make a bread that contained all the things I like to eat on a pancake. My nephew thinks the name is totally wrong; as he feels pancakes are flat NOT bread. He wants me to call this Pudding Bread (The...
  • Key Lime Pie
    on May 7, 2009 in pie Dessert
    Yesterday I was craving key lime pie. Many years ago, when I lived in Florida, I was a total connoisseur of the stuff. Despite my lactose intolerance, if it was on the menu, I had to order it. One slice of that tangy pie with its sweet graham cracker...

    I bought whole wheat pizza dough from Trader Joe's the other day and when I was about to make a pizza for the billionth time I had an epiphany......calzones are made out of pizza dough! I haven't had a calzone since the 80's; so those suckers have be...
  • Lasagna Rolls
    on Mar 2, 2009 in Flax Pasta Italian tofu
    Boy, I have been really slacking off on writing in my blog. I've been cooking a lot, but I haven't documented anything I've created in a while. The other night I made a special dinner for my hubby, which included my first attempt at lasagna rolls.
  • Thick & Tangy Tomato SoupIt has been REALLY cold here in Portland, so I've been obsessed with soups. I made this one over a week ago, but it was so tasty that I don't want to forget what I did. I'm a little hazy on some of the amounts of things - but I added them b
