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! It is very difficult [...]
The original recipe for this yummy dip came from our local newspaper. I changed it up quite a lot – a great dip for veggies or a spread on flat bread or crackers. If you read my blog, you will know I use dripped Yogurt, or Yogurt cheese often – it is such a great [...]
This curry pate is quick and easy to whip up – it begins like a dahl but ends up quite like a hummus. Great as a dip with crackers, served alongside a vegetable platter, or as a spread on Dosa’s – East Indian Flat Bread. This also makes a healthy, hearty lunch too!
I used this [...]
These are a yummy appetizer or even a great lunch. The amount of stuffing I made turned out to be the perfect amount for these mushrooms. Most recipes suggest baking for 10-12 minutes, with my strange oven, they needed a few more minutes.
15 fairly large mushrooms, Crimini mushrooms, about 1 1/2 – 2 inches in [...]
I LOVE Hummus. I have discovered though, my body is not happy when I eat garbonzo bean/chickpeas – just can’t do them. So I thought why not try Pinto Beans? Ohhh and was it good! Served with fresh veggies, gluten free crackers, or even as a spread on gluten free bread – so healthy and [...]
This is a recipe I have been wanting to make forever! And dang, they were good. But, very rich too. I have listed them under “Appetizers” but these would make a nice lunch served with a salad. I will also say they were somewhat of a process to make, but a really nice once in [...]
Happy New Year to all – may it be a year of joy, laughter, and mighty good food! Speaking of mighty good….
Gluten Free Homemade Crackers… Holy Mama, these are mighty tasty. In no way do these look like their gluten cousins. Not one bit. But tasty? With crispy deliciousness? Lord have Mercy is all I [...]
While at the grocery store the other day, I came upon some organic, local, green house grown herbs. They will never taste quite as good as in summer, but honestly, they were wonderful in this dip with fresh vegetables.
Over the holidays, I received some much coveted kitchen tools I had been eying for some time. [...]
We love love Tamari roasted Almonds. These are a great snack anytime, but are also a nice treat around Christmas too. These will be part of the Christmas Foodie Goodies I have been putting together all week for our kids.
There are tons of different recipes out there, lots of different seasonings you can choose from. [...]
I put together this little appetizer plate one afternoon for DH and I to share. With the emphasis on the Roasted Chestnuts. I only purchased a handful, as we had never had roasted chestnuts before, and were not sure what to expect. With the last week before Christmas, life has been hectic. We are [...]
