“Glowing skin is always in.” Long story about this recipe.  This morning one of the cats decide to drape herself over my neck like the picture of the Good Shepherd.  She was not comfortable on my lap as I reached over her to work on my computer so decided that it would be best for…

STUFFED ONIONS

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.  An onion a day keeps everyone away.” This recipe appealed to me because I love roasted onions and because the possibilities are almost endless.  I also see these onion cups as a way to use leftovers. And then there is the question of why a person might…

GLUTEN FREE POTATO DUMPLINGS

“Most of our ancestors were not perfect ladies and gentlemen.  The majority of them weren’t even mammals.”  Robert Anton Wilson Robert Anton Wilson, obviously, just spent some “quality” time with his family.  Some of his books look interesting but they aren’t going to get the dumplings made.

CAULIFLOWER SAUCE

“If the road is easy, you’re likely going the wrong way.”  Terry Goodkind I needed another dairy free sauce for the sake of my marriage and my friendships.  It was then I remembered that cauliflower can be whipped into a consistency that resembles mashed potatoes.  It was then I realized that I could probably thin…

“Go and do, don’t sit and stew.” I’m on a mission to clean out my freezer.  In my freezer are a few dozen jars labeled “soup”.  God only knows what combination of ingredients I decided to call soup. There is also a jar labeled “chicken”, which I know is chicken thigh meat simmered in broth,…
