What’s For Dessert: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, GF, VG

I’ve been making Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies since 1987. This is the first year, however, I’ve made a gluten free version! I’m so happy that it worked out, because these cookies have become part of our family’s holiday traditions. I invented the original recipe based on a cookie purchased at Smith’s grocery store. (I don’t

It’s A Party! Herbed Chezee

We call this stuff “chezee”, since it’s not cheese, but it’s a vegan version! It’s comparable to a fresh, soft goat cheeze, mixed with herbs and can be used in recipes in place of it. This is really easy to make, since the nuts can soak on the counter and once that’s done, it only

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. A while back, I got this cookie cutter. It’s the Fred and Friends Gingerdead Men Cookie Cutter/Stamps, and it’s under 7 bucks on Amazon! F&F has all kinds of fun and funny gadgets that will make you smile, some for the kitchen, some for entertaining, and many for

What’s For Snack: It Tastes Like Chicken!

Or mozzarella sticks… Doesn’t matter what you compare it to, I just call it “M-M-M Good!” This is pretty simple to make, and you can use any type of tofu, except the silken varitey. If you make it from soft tofu, it often reminds adults of deep-fried mozzarella. Kids tend to like it made from

What’s For Snack: Gluten Free Seeded Quinoa and Millet Crackers

I recently picked up the October/November 2012 issue of Living Without magazine because it had information about making a Thanksgiving Feast that was wheat and dairy free. In particular, I’m trying to figure out a GF pie crust that works and tastes good. In addition, this issue has five recipes for GF crackers. Since we

What’s For Dinner: Collard Wraps

This week in our Bountiful Baskets we got Collard Greens. HUH? Collard Greens? I have no clue what to do with those! The only thing that comes to mind is that boiled, nasty, bitter Southern dish that usually also includes ham or bacon! DH says, “You said we need to eat lots of dark, leafy

What’s For Dessert: Banana-Date-Walnut Shake

On Tuesday, MIL came over for dinner. She is a dessert-a-holic, so I always try to make something special for after the meal when she is here. On the other hand, dinner was running late due to unforeseen circumstances, so I didn’t have time to make this as an ice cream. Instead I simplified the

What’s For Snack: Pickled Green Beans

I have always loved green beans. I will eat them hot or cold. In a soup, in a casserole, just plain… any way I can get them! When I was a kid, I used to grab a can from the cupboard, open it and drain the liquid, rinse the beans, and pour my favorite salad

What’s For Snack: Kale Chips

Published on September 7, 2012 in Food, Recipe, Snacks

Do you eat Kale? Well, you should! But most people either don’t know what to do with it, or don’t like it. One of the Bountiful Basket volunteers told DH that she feeds it to her rabbits! Wow! Her rabbits are eating healthier than she is! Kale is loaded with nutrition that your body needs.
