Gluten-Free Chewy Chocolate Chip/Toffee Cookies

Before baking.  Notice the size of the cookie
I have been baking and cooking for many years and when I see a recipe I can tell right away if it’s going to taste good or will it need some tweaking.    I have yet to find a recipe that does not need an extra ingredient or maybe deleting one will make the food tastier.  Either... Read more »

The World According to Veganstylist Her Royal Highness

I’m in the future and I see all the animal warehouses smoldering.  I’m in the future and all the slaughterhouses have been leveled.  I’m in the future and we are all vegans. The people of the earth or at least in America, the only country that genetically modifies its food and the revolution is on... Read more »

Gluten-Free Dining at Joe's Seafood Restaurant in Chicago

I have more pet peeves than I wish to acknowledge publicly.  Since this is a food blog I will address the peeves that deal with food service.  Cleanliness and good service is a given not an “Oh this never happens, it is only this bus boy and he will be retrained,” nonsense. To celebrate Lenny,... Read more »

Wannabe Lunch Lady Vegan Gluten-Free Rolls Recipe

When people go to sell their home,  some tend to have fresh bread baking or just-out-of-the-oven cookies to embellish in the minds of potential buyers the feeling of warmth.  The aroma of fresh bread brings to mind many happy memories; waking up to a warm breakfast of French toast made with fresh bread, or being...

Carlucci in Rosemont Will Accomodate the Vegan Gluten-Free

The last time I visited Carlucci in Rosemont an Italian restaurant was maybe 4 years ago.  Last night I made my return debut and was quite surprised by the food selection.   They will accommodate the gluten-free challenge but not so much the vegan.  People that don’t consume carcass tend to scare caveman restaurant owners. I... Read more »

Dinner With Roasted Beets For a Tittillating Experience

Dinner is usually a “What am I making tonight?” dilemma.  A carcass dish of some sort has to be provided for my “I’ll eat anything that doesn’t eat me first” husband and then of course the side dishes.  The side dishes tend to be the veggies and/or grain dish. Handling carcass has become quite a... Read more »

Desperately Seeking Vegan Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Recipe

Rice Flour pizza dough
Pizza can be eaten for breakfast, snack, lunch and dinner and practically any time except during Chanukah and then only Chinese food is allowed.  I don’t make the rules; I sometimes follow them as long as they are convenient to me.  I love pizza. Gluten-free crusts are not as great as a wheat crust.  The... Read more »

Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Josh, my middle son is preparing to take the Bar Exam in two weeks.  While studying (I assume, more rant on this later) he came across a recipe for gluten-free vegan chocolate chip cookies.  I should ask him if the recipe was under Torts or Constitutional Law. I will give him credit for discovering this tasty... Read more »

Vegan and Gluten-Free Stamina Crackers

Knowing very well that seeds and nuts are high in calories but chock full of vitamins and minerals, I have created a cracker that will give you energy, pep and fiber to keep you full until your next meal.    The assumption is that you eat every three hours or so and the fiber rich high...

Seeds (Chia,Sunflower,Pepita,Sesame etc.) What Are They Good For

Sometimes it is much easier to have a jar chock full of all kinds of seeds than going from container to container to pull out what you need.  I found a large glass jar at the Container Store and then went to my new favorite grocery store Fresh Thyme the equivalent of Whole Foods but... Read more »
