Oat-Flour Fudge Brownies

Use gluten-free rolled oats to be certain your brownies are 100% gluten free. My family uses regular rolled oats because we do not have celiac disease, and any possible trace amounts of gluten in regular rolled oats don’t seem to bother my family. If we had more sensitivity or celiac then we would only use certified […]

African Chicken & Peanut Butter Stew

In Africa peanuts are called ground nuts, because they grow underground. I live in Virginia, where peanuts are plentiful and delightfully affordable. This recipe is inspired by West African recipes that used sweet potatoes and collard greens. Sweet potatoes are sometimes cheap where I live, but sometimes kind of pricey, so I tend to use carrots instead. […]

There are so many food blogs out there and they are so beautiful! Gorgeous studio-quality photography, recipes that turn out delicious, beautiful foods that look so appetizing […]

Brief Update

I have put my GFCF food storage section on hiatus. I had a red notebook filled with GFCF food storage recipes that were well tested, family-approved and ready to write up for the website but I have lost the notebook and looked everywhere for it, except wherever it is, because I CANNOT  find it. Grrr! So until […]

Oatmeal Cinnamon Muffins

These are the muffins I use for breakfast or brunch potlucks when I need something other people can eat and which they won’t recognize as gluten free. They’re hearty, tasty, moist and tender. Most people assume they’re oat bran muffins and I don’t always correct them. My kids like these for a snack and they’re […]

Food Plan 004

I’ve decided not to blog what I planned to eat, because I haven’t been planning so much in advance, as just doing it on the fly. This is of course, subject to change and whims on my part. I wasn’t hungry yesterday much at all. I love the days when my appetite isn’t a ravenous […]

Life, Food Plans & Exercise

  The past couple of days I’ve had trouble writing down what I eat. On the bright side, I haven’t been overly hungry and I don’t remember eating anything very bad for me. Mostly just cleaning up the healthy leftovers in the fridge. I’ve been careful to eat plenty of vegetables which is tiresome and makes […]
