APPLESAUCE BREAKFAST CAKE

“I’ll eat some breakfast and then change the world.” On my quest to use up my stash of applesauce without my husband knowing that I’m feeding him applesauce everyday, I came upon this recipe for applesauce breakfast cake.  But the plot thickens. I happen to have a reaction to gluten.  It makes me groggy.  If…

BREAKFAST IS SERVED

“Don’t forget to set your scale back 10 pounds tonight.” I really enjoy the early hours of the morning.  I absolutely enjoy them more if I can slip quietly into the day with as little effort as possible.  That’s why I generally make coffee before I go to bed and store it in the fridge…

GLUTEN FREE QUCIK BREAD

“Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.”  Jules Renard On August 20 and 21 I posted a gluten free flour mix along with a recipe for a gluten free pizza crust using the flour mix.  Happy dance!  Loved it!  Except. The flour mix is now languishing in the fridge…

SNACK TIME

“I enjoy long romantic walks to the fridge.” Yes, I’m still following the eating plan on myfitnesspal.com.  Love the app because it sets out a nutritionally balanced diet for me.  The help it gives me is wonderful.  The first 4 weeks I lost 5 pounds.  The plan promises a pound a week.  More important than…

BRUNCH VS BUFFET

“Never test the depth of a river with both feet.”  Warren Buffet Although I intended to search the internet for quotes about buffets, as in a restaurant offering, quotes from Warren Buffet prevailed.  I like the one above. This blog entry, however, is a tribute to Sunday morning brunch.  These are amazing experiences especially when…

CUPBOARD GRANOLA

“Happiness is enough leftovers so you don’t have to cook.” As I was organizing my hallway food cupboard I discovered a plethora of dried fruit, some nuts, a bit of coconut, and a bag with about two cups of gluten free granola.  I knew I was on the cusp of great breakfast and/or snack food.…

PORK AND YAM HASH

“I eat goals for breakfast.” Here’s a simple dish that can be prepared the night before, warmed, and served with an egg or two.  If you’re not hungry early in the morning it would also make a great lunch.  So next time you grill a bunch of pork sausage, that includes brats, set one or…

BLUEBERRY BREAKFAST BAKE

“I believe in chocolate for breakfast.” This is another great recipe for a crowd.  It’s also great because you can prepare most of it the night before.  It is not, however, gluten and sugar free, unless you hunt down some gluten free bread.  Do whatever you gotta do. INGREDIENTS: 12 slices day old bread, crusts…

GLUTEN FREE PANCAKES

“When you love what you have you have everything you need.” My friend (defined as someone who will share recipes) served these one morning.  These pancakes have a slightly nutty flavor and are great next to a serving of bacon and eggs.  No gluten laden toast needed! INGREDIENTS: 1 large egg 2 cups buttermilk 1/4…

GRAPEFRUIT

“May life be crazy enough to be interesting and sane enough to be safe.” So who is going to read a blog about grapefruit!  A goodly proportion of the population can’t even eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice because of the drugs they take.  That just seems wrong.  Almost as wrong as raisins. For those…
