Carrot Cake with Cream "Cheese" Frosting - Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free (but no one will know!)


I have come to the conclusion that I am not going to change the world or anything else by writing blog posts. I hope, at least my ego hopes, that the recipes I post provide something nurturing to those who try them. However, I also know that I am one small entity in a very large world. The truth is that the biggest impact I can have is on those closest to me, in how I live my life, in how I conduct myself, in how I treat those with whom I come into contact with each day. If, by chance, you read this recipe and you make it for someone and they enjoy it, then the ripple has extended even further than I expected. If it so happens that someone enjoys this who happens also not to be gluten-free, yet loves it just the same as many in my circle did, then so the better.

Frying frenzy!!! Oh my goodness, me? Yes, me. I can’t believe it myself…

Red Kale Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing (gluten-free and dairy-free, of course)

Happy Spring!!! I have decided that no matter the season, it’s going to be my favorite. No matter the day, the moment, it’s going to be my favorite. Though the truth is that I do love the onset of spring (almost as much as the onset of summer – which is probably my ultimate favorite). That means that today is unanimously my favorite day: the first day of spring, the Spring Equinox. Lovely…

Beef Noodle Soup – Pho (gluten-free, dairy-free)


This is not traditional by any means. At least I don’t believe so. In fact, it may not even be close. It may not even fit into the category of gourmet. In which case I say, you have to get out of the box sometimes! It was, however, derived from one of those, “Oh my gosh, I have to have it now!” moments where nothing else would do. Nothing. And it had to be pretty much now!

Crispy Kale Chips (gluten-free, dairy-free)


Sometimes you just have to keep it simple. Now that the holidays have passed, the excitement of the New Year has faded, and the ski/snowboard season in the Pacific Northwest is rather “bunk” this year, things could feel a little bleak. February often brings about that sense, or so I’ve heard from many. So my friend and I decided to do a “cleanse” for the month of February, to prepare us for the upcoming new season…spring. I settled on an “anti-inflammation diet”.
