Gluten Free TVP Gyros with Radish Tzatziki

Gyros are an absolutely delectable Greek dish that usually features lamb piled on  fresh pita bread with lots of tzatziki sauce. They used to be one of my favorite meals but since I can no longer eat the meat or the pita, my gyro options have been pretty limited lately. However, after making 5 minute flatbread, I realized that the flatbread was the perfect vessel to try vegetarian gyros....more

A Glutening and a Detox

GluteningIn May, I had to change doctors. My new doctor didn't really trust my observation that eating gluten caused my vitamin levels to drop. She really didn't even believe me when I told her that I had been diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency that caused me to have many neurological problems. She wanted to know if someone had told me that. When I replied that a neurologist had, she refused to believe me until she got the neurologist's report. Sadly, this is not the first time I've run into this....more

Flourless Chocolate Cake

When we lived in Georgia, there really wasn't anywhere to get gluten free dessert, except the ice cream shops. That's when my baking desires came to full plight.

The only thing I changed was using cane sugar instead of refined.   ...more

Quinoa Brownies

Since discovering quinoa a few months ago, I've looked at tons and tons of recipes with quinoa.  If you haven't heard about all the amazing healthy benefits of quinoa, read this article.  I ran across a recipe for a quinoa chocolate cake that sounded very interesting.  I still wasn't sure about making a dessert with quinoa so I just kept it in the back of my head.  One night at book club, I was talking with my friend Angela about the quinoa chocol...more

A Way to Mark Milestones: Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Salad

This week I am doing something that I don’t do often enough: I am acknowledging the passing of time. It’s a slippery little thing, isn’t it? This careful art of moving forward, of keeping on, this business of involuntary and yet mandatory self progress. It is, all at once, so glorious and also so claustrophobic. ...more
This sounds so good! I'm a lover of all things spicy, so I'm definitely giving this a try.more
