Low-Guilt Treats for Tea

Scones (instagram)

I first saw this recipe a couple of years ago when I purchased the Gather cookbook. My friend Carrie and I agreed that I should make these. What appealed to me was the idea of enjoying a scone that had a fair amount of nutritional value. Continue reading

Breakfast Change of Pace

Scones and Meatlof 011If you follow this blog, you might have seen the most recent rendition of meatloaf that I posted in November: Turkey, Sweet Potato & Kale Loaf.  The recipe was adapted from a meatloaf I had when I was in Chicago.

While I thought the meatloaf was delicious, my husband will not eat kale. This left me with an entire loaf to consume by myself. Because it was so good, this was not really a hardship, but I did find myself trying to come up with creative ways to serve it. Continue reading

I served the rice version of this dish with grilled salmon, a mango salsa, and a big green salad, and my clients—and their gluten-free friend—both said it was delicious.

Mexican Vegetable Stew

Mexican vegetables with Cornbread

Here is another dish I served last month when I needed a vegetarian option. Because I was serving Turkey Chili with cornbread to my meat-eating friends, it seemed logical to have a tomato-based vegetarian stew for my non-meat-eating friends.

Blackberry Pie

Summer 2014 030

As I’ve mentioned before, I have a number of clients and friends who choose (or need) a gluten-free diet. As a result, I am always on the lookout for recipes that are delicious enough to please people with special diet concerns as well as their friends and families who don’t need (or choose) to avoid gluten. Plus, I like a good challenge.

I found this recipe through a quick search online, and I tried it for a client who was hosting friends who eat gluten-free. My client prefers to stay vegan, and this recipe met both of those requirements.
