  • Sweet potato casserole recipe
    on May 16, 2011 in vegetables vegetarian nuts gluten-free
    When I was invited to an Easter lunch and needed to come up with a dish to bring, I immediately thought of sweet potatoes.  I don't typically associate sweet potatoes with Easter, but I guess I was in the mood for them.  I didn't want to ma...
  • Grilled mojo chicken and eggplant recipes
    on May 3, 2011 in vegetables grill chicken gluten-free
      About a month ago I got a grill.  It was one of those days that I won't soon forget, and not because I'm that obsessed with the grill (but I am enjoying it often!).  You see, I have a Corolla, so transporting most furniture, applianc...
  • Mamom's fumi salad recipe
    on Mar 17, 2011 in vegetables salad chicken
    Thanks to everyone for all of the kind messages encouraging me to keep the blog going.  That is my intent, though I'm sure my posting frequency will not be what it once was.  The one person that most consistently expressed her desire for ne...
  • Funk.
    on Sep 20, 2010
    I've lost my cooking mojo, and it's getting to be a serious problem.  As classes started last month, I knew that I would be a lot busier and would have to plan quick meals most nights.  Not a big deal, I've made plenty of good food that doe...
  • Weekend Herb Blogging #246 recap
    on Aug 15, 2010 in weekend herb blogging
    I'm excited to be hosting Weekend Herb Blogging this week, and once again I'm amazed by the variety of fruits and vegetables that were featured this week, and the creative ways that everyone used them.  Without further ado, here are the entries...
  • Fig gelato recipeI'm not generally a fan of fruit-flavored ice cream because it usually has a fake, chemically taste to me (unless we're talking about fresh peach ice cream from Dickey Farms).  But gelato is another matter.  I've had my fair share of gelato...
  • Light summer squash casserole recipe
    on Aug 2, 2010 in vegetables vegetarian gluten-free
    One of my favorite southern foods is squash casserole.  The squash is mushy (in a good way) and almost melts in your mouth.  It must be a family favorite, too, because Mom always made one for Thanksgiving until I took over the cooking dutie...
  • Georgia food adventures
    on Jul 29, 2010 in fruit vegetables grains Georgia
    You're probably tired of hearing me talk about all of the wonderful food I've been enjoying since the move.  Too bad, because I have to share more.  One of my favorite luxuries of living near Atlanta is being able to make occasional trips t...
  • Trinidadian chicken curry recipe
    on Jul 25, 2010 in vegetables chicken gluten-free
    Just after getting my cooking mojo back last week, I headed to Toronto for a conference.  Toronto is a great place to eat because you can find authentic food from all around the world within a few blocks (I ate at Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, and...
  • Maque choux with sausage recipe
    on Jul 16, 2010 in cajun vegetables turkey
    I moved to Georgia at the perfect time.  Ok, so it's not the best time to be moving stuff (my shirt was visibly soaked with sweat all day Monday after hauling boxes of books into my new office), but as soon as I got here I was inundated with del...
  • Blueberry and fig smoothie recipe
    on Jul 11, 2010 in fruit snack
    I've been in Georgia for about 2 weeks now, and I finally feel settled. The movers delivered my stuff yesterday (I found out the hard way that sleeping on an air mattress for that long is NOT pleasant), and before that I barely did any cooking. I h...
  • Carrot macaroni and cheese recipeI've been in denial for the last few weeks, but I'm finally starting to accept the fact that I'm moving across the country in less than a week.  Don't get me wrong, I'm beyond excited, but I always turn into a mess before I move.  When I le...
  • Hello again!
    on Jun 18, 2010
    Wow, it's been a while.  Between finishing up things in the lab, packing, and trying to see everyone before I move next week, I've been quite busy.  Plus, last weekend I went to Florida to throw Mom a surprise birthday party.  I think...
  • Two gluten-free granola bar recipesIn addition to the fig, pecan, and flax crackers I made for my Mother's Day care package, I also sent two kinds of granola bars.  I found two recipes that sounded fantastic and couldn't decide between them, so I went overboard as usual.  Lu...
  • Cabbage stuffed with quinoa pilaf recipeI loved this simple quinoa pilaf, especially because my last pilaf was virtually inedible.  The flavors were very simple, but the combination of quinoa, tomatoes, raisins, and pine nuts was perfect.  I got the pilaf recipe from Gluten-Free...
  • Warm butter bean, red onion, and spinach salad with mustard recipeEven after making Brunswick stew this week (which is getting better and better!), I still have butter beans in my freezer (for some reason I thought it was a great idea to cook 3 pounds of them a few months ago).  Before I made the stew, I was i...
  • Brunswick stew recipeI'm ecstatic right now.  I have a lot of recipes in the queue, but I have to tell you about this one immediately.  One of my absolute favorite meals in the world (perhaps THE favorite) is my grandmother's vegetable soup with cornbread. ...
  • Fig, pecan, and flax crackers recipe
    on May 13, 2010 in fruit snack vegetarian nuts gluten-free
    Since I've started packing up my apartment, I've become even more sensitive to the fact that nobody wants more junk to sit around.  So for Mother's Day, I wanted to give Mom something useful.  Between work and taking care of my grandmother,...
  • Let's talk about sorghum
    on May 11, 2010 in grains gluten-free
    I'm guessing that a lot of people have had sorghum syrup at some point in their lives.  And those of us who have adopted a gluten-free diet have almost surely had sorghum flour and sorghum-based beer.  In fact, I use sorghum flour more than...
  • Rhubarb and strawberry compote recipeMy favorite farmers' market opened last weekend, and I'm so happy to have plans every Saturday morning again.  I'm trying to enjoy the spring offerings and not think about the fact that I'll move before the market really gets going.  Last w...
