Review: Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking

Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking: 101 Entirely Plant-based, Mostly Gluten-Free, Easy and Delicious Recipes by Dana Shultz My rating: ★★★★★ When we visited friends in Scotland in April, they introduced me to a vegan cookbook called Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking: 101 Entirely Plant-based, Mostly Gluten-Free, Easy and Delicious Recipes. Because I am me, and have difficulty... Continue Reading →

My immune system collapsed in the wee hours this morning, when I woke up to a coughing fit and severe sinus pain. I haven't done much today except sleep, but I did manage to put a meal in the slow-cooker so I will have home-cooked lunches this week. I love this recipe for barbecued chicken and cornbread because... Continue Reading →

This slow-cooker Thai curry recipe turned out great. Now I have lunches for half the week, too. It's gluten-free but not vegetarian; I think it could be made vegetarian with a bit more eggplant and sweet potato instead of the chicken, plus a proper substitute for fish sauce. It's disappointing not to be able to... Continue Reading →

Today I made vegetarian mole chili, cornbread, and raw chocolate chip cookie dough bites. Tonight I am full!   In the wee hours of the morning, Zen heaved herself up the stairs not once but twice because FunkyPlaid and I were too asleep to pay attention to her. Goodness knows how long it took her... Continue Reading →

I'm feeling a bit ill tonight after a run of generally good health days. I sometimes forget how precarious that health can be, so tonight's photo is of two gluten-free treats that make me happy. The guide was a gift from Courtney, and I'm looking forward to visiting all of the gluten-free restaurants and bakeries... Continue Reading →

Despite this being the least appealing food photograph I've ever taken, I was highly impressed by the meal I made from the SunBasket gift we received from my mom. This was a recipe for salmon with mango salsa, and it was easy to prepare and cook, a boon for this exhausted librarian at the end of... Continue Reading →

Yesterday I ordered a supposedly gluten-free dish from a menu of a local chain of Italian restaurants. We had never been to the restaurant before, so I relied on the menu and the server to be accurate. They weren't. Today I felt miserable with all of the symptoms of accidental gluten ingestion, like coming down... Continue Reading →

Day 362 of Project 365: Fall in Line

Before I went gluten-free, I was too intimidated to try making homemade lasagne. Even though I knew it was basically just layer-cake pasta -- how hard can that be? -- I avoided making it. Post G-Day, one of the first recipes I learned how to make was polenta vegetable lasagne. Using pre-cooked polenta and jarred... Continue Reading →

Day 300 of Project 365: I Ate a Croissant

My 300th photo is of the first croissant I've eaten in four years. Genius, a wonderful local company, makes gluten-free croissants. I do not know what sorcery they use to make the croissants so good, and I do not care. I only care that I can eat croissants again because the croissant dreams have been... Continue Reading →
