Orange Juice is one of the world's leading juices.  It is a staple in many American households to have with breakfast or for those who are about to come down with a cold, since Oranges contain a lot of vitamin C.   There are a a few simple facts I want to address when it comes to orange juice: orange juice has a lot of natural sugar! additives are added to store-bought orange juice, and the FDA doesn't require the [...]

  Artichokes are such a funny vegetable!   They are prickly, hard, stiff, and can be very painful to work with.   It takes time to love these vegetables, but hopefully the recipe below will create a love for artichokes so grand that they will become a staple in your fridge. This was sup super tasty that my husband jokingly asked me to make this for him everyday!  I love to serve with GF crackers, bread, or EVEN the outer [...]

The final day at the bakery was slow, but I was grateful for that since the chopping I had done the previous day had really taken a toll on my arms. I worked with someone new who let me see how the French croissants were made, and I got to see what the pounds and pounds of chocolate I chopped was used for. The baker I worked with that night even commented on how surprised she was to see me [...]

Sometimes, I cheat on my diet and eat things I know my body will react to. I know it’s terrible and the world and I won't get along the next day, but sometimes (for example), I just need some soda. If you have been reading this blog for a while, you know that I can't eat corn. This doesn’t  just mean the beautiful corn cobs people eat at BBQs, or bags of corn meal...being allergic to corn means that I [...]

My tree is decorated, my wreath is hanging on my front door, and the only thing missing is the freshly baked smell of cookies in my oven. However, this time of year is not just about sweets--it is also about yummy and delicious soups! I had some extra time on Saturday afternoon, so I used it cooking up some different soups, as well as a gluten and corn-free mac and cheese! For the soup, I used a pumpkin I had [...]

It has been a few weeks since I have written last.  So much has changed--I have a new website: www.maryleecatering.com (it is still in process, but check it out).  The Holiday Season is quickly upon us, and I can't seem to change my kitchen menu fast enough. It is hard to find differing recipes for Halloween, and then for  Thanksgiving, and of course for Christmas… On top of the change of menus there is also a change of season and weather--which [...]
