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 […]


Post image for Cocoa Teff Hot Cereal (Mock Cocoa Wheats)

Does anyone remember Cocoa Wheat Hot cereal? It was a favorite in our home. I always fed a lot of hot cereal to my kids in the winter and I am a big fan myself. We lived in the country and waited for the school bus in the cold weather (yes, I waited with them!) […]

This was a quick dish made by cooking 1/2 lb of lean hamburger with chopped onion and mushrooms and adding a little beef broth and corn starch, served along side fresh asparagus. Total time, including making the noodles was […]

This is a reminder to all people on a gluten-free diet to wander down the ethnic aisles of any large grocery store you find yourself in. Recently, I was doing just that at Meijer in Bloomington, IL. I was enjoying looking at all of the Asian, Indian, Mexican and other cuisines. They have very little […]
