A line from the sound of music came to me as I prepared to write this post: "let's start at the very beginning. A very good place to start." And when it comes to cooking or baking gluten free, I completely agree. You can master all of the skills of cooking, baking, or substituting, but if you don't have the ingredients, it's going to be more than a little challenging to make the food. Below is a basic pantry guide [...]

*this was originally posted on March 2, 2015.  The month of March is about Spring and all that comes with it. For some it’s spring cleaning and gardening, while others celebrate St. Patrick’s day, but I also want to note that it is Women's History month. So, as you prepare the delicious salad, below, think about the women who have meant a great deal in your life and have helped you get to where you are. Now, onto salads. I think [...]

  Ashley: Community is the bedrock of daily life, providing a foundation for living. By this I mean that community, family, friends, and acquaintances, is the context in which people craft their lives. Here rituals and traditions emerge, forming us and our lives into rhythms. Here we make meaning out of both the challenging and enjoyable moments of life. It is against the backdrop of these meaningful connections that we find and make our places in the world. Because I [...]

Food for the Long Hot Days of Summer

By | 2016-05-17T09:59:36+00:00 August 4th, 2015|Categories: Blog, Gluten Free, Recipes|Tags: , , |

For me August means long, hot, languid summer days where I can’t imagine anything more appealing than a day spent lying in a hammock in the shade, with an iced drink in hand and music playing in the background. The only option that rivals it is spending the evening sitting outside on a patio with friends or sharing a meal at an outdoor concert or movie. The first thing to go on increasingly hot days is my willingness to spend [...]

It is getting so hot in Southern California. When I moved out here 3 ½ years ago I wasn’t ready for not having Central A/C in my home, but not a lot of homes or apartments in Southern California actually have Central A/C. This makes for a very frustrating and irritable cook! When I cook in the kitchen during the summer time, I have to think about what I can make that won’t make my house 100°F. This is very [...]
