Gluten-free Buckwheat Polenta

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Polenta with Roasted Asparagus + Tomatoes

A decade ago, if you had asked me to name a whole grain other than wheat I would’ve been totally stumped. Now, the world of gluten-free eating has opened me up to a wide variety of grains, including millet, sorghum, amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, teff and wild rice (If you’d like the scoop on gluten-free grains […]

Dairy-Free Cauliflower Chowder

Thick and Creamy Dairy-Free Chowder

Endless inspiration surrounds us. I’m inspired by those who reach out to others with kindness. I’m inspired by incredible acts of courage. I’m inspired by the little guys who stand up to the big guys. I’m inspired by the countless charitable and non-profit organizations that work to make our lives better, safer, healthier and happier […]

Gluten-Free Sorghum Salad with Tahini Dressing

Gluten-Free Sorghum ‘Couscous’ with Tahini Dressing

I often feel baffled about what to bring to potlucks. What will be pleasing to most palates? What is easy to transport? What can I have as a satisfying main dish if there is nothing else at the potluck I can eat? Is my dish too weird or healthy? Not to mention the pressure I […]

Stuffed Shells with Dairy-Free Cream Sauce

Stuffed Shells with Dairy-Free Cauliflower Cream Sauce

Have you ever been lured by a bright, alluring or unusual ingredient at the grocery store? You know, like a gleaming cascade of blood-red cherries, a trendy bag of coconut flour, or a knobbly lump of celery root? As a food blogger, this is something that happens to me quite regularly. Look – it’s a […]

Gluten-Free Vegan Ramen in a Mason Jar

Gluten-Free Ramen in a Mason Jar

Mason jar salads have become immensely popular and I think they’re a fantastic idea. And yet I’ve never made one because as I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a fan of raw salads –  and no adorable mason jar is going to change that. Then a few weeks ago, a friend posted this recipe for travelling […]

One Pot Gluten-Free Pasta

One Pot Gluten-Free Pasta

One-pot pasta dishes made a splash in the food world last year, thanks to Martha Stewart. I repeatedly heard from many bloggers and friends that one-pot pasta could not be done with gluten-free pasta because it would become a thick, gluey mess. I never thought to question this, likely a product of my agreeable, conciliatory […]

Root Veggie Loaf (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Parsnips and carrots are distant relatives. In my mind, the parsnip is like that weird and graceless cousin who shows up to your family barbecues with nothing interesting to say. It’s the vegetable you want to like because, you know, kin is kin, but you simply can’t get past the pale and hairy exterior, the […]

Gluten-Free Southwestern Shepherd's Pie

Southwestern Shepherd’s Pie (Gluten-Free and Vegan)

Thanksgiving dinner is my husband’s domain. Each year the menu is the same: turkey, roast potatoes and parsnips, steamed carrots, sage and onion stuffing, beef gravy, Yorkshire puddings. He’s utterly set in his ways about it. When we first moved in together, he threw a fit because I cut the carrots into chunks instead of […]

Savory Kugel (Gluten-Free and Vegan)

I didn’t grow up in a strict, fanatically religious household, but we were observant. For us, practicing Judaism meant more than going to shul once a year and eating chocolate gelt during Chanukah (and, sorry to tell you, we did not get eight presents). I went to Hebrew school two afternoons a week, and attended […]
