Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine especially wonderful because my son came home for the summer just in time for Mother’s Day. Woo-hoo!

This week I am hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap. The theme for the week is [click to continue…]




I’m going to toot my own horn for a minute… Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies are the BEST chocolate cookies EVER! (Cue dancing in the kitchen here…) Ok, I’m back. But, honestly, these cookies, with their perfect chewy edge and soft center, intense chocolate flavor and large chocolate chunks are just the thing when chocolate craving hits. The little punch of spice is optional, but I do recommend trying it. The warmth really balances the rich chocolate.  All that AND they are gluten free and dairy free.  I’m telling’ ya – it’s cookie heaven!

gluten Free Menu Swap-Spring radishes

Radishes are the theme Heather of Celiac Family picked for this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap. Because radishes are so easy to grow and spout up quickly, I have always had the kids plant them so we usually end up with a boatload of the little guys. I don’t do anything very exciting with radishes most of the time – scrub, slice and toss on a salad, or add to Kimchi or Napa Cabbage Slaw. I do have a batch I am experimenting with fermenting right now. I’ll let you all know if they turn out tasty. My youngest (the picky princess) isn’t a big fan of radishes, so won’t eat the peppery little things raw, but will eat them sautéed. It is such and interesting way to eat radishes. Sautéing really cuts the spicy factor down and leaves you with a crisp tender bite. The recipes my family have liked are Sautéed Radishes with Spinach (with a piece of bacon chopped and cooked before adding anything else to the pan) and Sautéed Radishes (using coconut oil instead of butter). How do you eat radishes?

Menu Plan…Monday? – March 31, 2015

March 31, 2015

Hello! I’m just getting around to posting my menu this week. Better late than never, right? I pulled the taps from our trees on Saturday, but we have SO much sap to cook down. Cooking sap has is pretty much been my focus along with canning all the syrupy goodness. Mmmm… I’ve got a busy […]

Menu Plan Monday – March 23, 2015

March 23, 2015

  Spring break is over for us (and it SNOWED last night) so we’re getting back to our regular routine. I’ve started cooking down sap in our turkey roaster (the only good good excuse for snow in the Spring is that it’s ‘sugar snow’ and means the syrup season is still going strong. Yum!) This […]
