Years ago, there used to be a cafe/restaurant in town that served the most heavenly gluten free Mexican Pie. We didn’t get to that part of town very often, but when we did this would be our lunch. Basically, it was an Enchilada – but the corn tortillas were stacked on top of one another, [...]
I love lentils cooked any way – especially in soup. The other day was a particularly busy day and on my way home from town I had one more stop to make at our local health food store. Once in the door, something smelled heavenly (I was starving too as it was lunch time).
Our local [...]
Recently I had read an article on the health benefits of cashew nuts. When cashew nuts are soaked and pureed into a luscious smooth mixture it is a perfect addition to soups of all kinds. Then I found this recipe from Sarah, of Making Thyme For Health. Wow, this takes cream of mushroom soup to [...]
Thought I would post this early as beautiful fresh tomatoes in our neck of the woods are not too far away. With an abundance of heirloom tomatoes making stewed tomatoes is a great way to use them up. Although for weeks on end we just eat them fresh off the vine.

Wow, did this dish ever exceed my expectations. It was YUMMY. With the Quinoa and Yams I also used cooked Mung Beans – a powerhouse of nutrition in a small bean. This is a dish that would be great for lunch or dinner – served at room temperature. It will get even better the next [...]

We are huge lovers of pesto in this household. Each year I make Organic Garlic Scape Pesto which we freeze to have throughout the year. This is the first time I have made Tomato Pesto and Oh My Goodness, do we ever love it.
As mentioned in previous posts, every year, we buy our local organic [...]
This is a recipe where you could certainly use cream cheese, however, in this household I always make Yogurt Cheese – or dripped Yogurt. Recently, I discovered there is a company in California called Green Valley Organics that makes lactose free dairy products including sour cream and cream cheese. Oh heaven!
