Easter greetings everyone! I had no plans for Easter this year so no big menu. I am going to paint my porches and decks today..meaning to start puttering around with the job.

Post image for How to cook fluffy brown rice

Sometimes I spend so much time coming up with new recipes that I forget some of the simple things. Often a new celiac really doesn’t know how to cook! Once I posted a recipe using the leftovers of my roast chicken and someone asked me how to roast a chicken…so I blogged that! Don’t ever […]

Instead of corned beef and cabbage we had a delicious pork loin roast with stir fried cabbage/onion/carrot. I am not a fan of the saltiness of corned beef or the mushiness of boiled cabbage. Call me picky! When I was at the store they had the giant whole pork loins on sale tor $1.99 a pound. I […]
