Quick, easy, and simple lunch. Corn tortilla skillet crisped. When one side is heated, flip, then add refried beans, pulled pork, and cheese. Cover skillet with lid until base is firm and cheese is melted. Topped with guacamole. TheMike topped with Guacamole and taco sauce.  Easy peasy in that the pulled pork was cooked months ago, shredded, and frozen in small packages for quick use. Took out of freezer, added to a skillet with a splash of water, covered, and heated.  Guacamole made with @simplyorganicfoods liquid Guacamole mix packet.  Tostada? Tlayudas? Regardless of na ..read more

Chocolate chip cookies

Guittard chocolate chips made gluten free today.  I thank them for have cup and gram measurements on the package recipe.  I used the semi sweet chocolate chips, and recipe on said package.  I used 2.5 cups of my gf flour blend which is just a bit more than 400grams, but that's what I know from baking, and from having started to measure flours in grams a few years ago.  Guittard uses #sunflower lecithin which works for me!   #chocolatechipcookies  #chocolate #glutenfree  #glutenfreetastesgreat  #celiac  #coeliac  #soyfree&nbs ..read more

Meatballs

Meatballs of sorts.  Using recipe I got from an Italian friend years ago.  In place of the cornflakes, I save up the ends of my bread in freezer, then thaw, pulverize in food processor, and then lightly toast in nonstick skillet.  As TheMike has been reacting to celery/parsley/cilantro/coriander, I left out the parsley and added in oregano, thyme, basil, and some fine shred carrots. (Hey, carrots are good in meatloaf, maybe they'll be fine in meatballs!) The new jar of minced garlic didn't POP when I opened it, so I dug out the few small cloves I had on had, peeled and then ..read more

Took time to make a nice pot of chili whilst watching Mary Poppins movie.  Experimenting leaving out the celery family (coriander and cumin) to which we think #TheMike has been reacting. He doesn't like Cilantro, or parsley. Coriander is Cilantro seed and cumin ie also in the celery family.   Oregano 2tsp Thyme 1/2 tsp Smidgen of Marjoram Hungarian sweet Paprika 2 -3 tsp Chili Powder 1 1/2 T Garlic 2 tsp minced Onions 1 small, diced Molasses, 1 tsp Two cans beans  Half pound beef (tonight is Waygu that was on extreme sale) Tomato sauce 1 can Diced tomatoes 1 can Half ca ..read more

In thr wonderful news, i did yoga today for first time in months! . Hand/wrist surgery where i had a benign tumor removed in August.  Had that for about 18 months. Doc thought it was ganglion cyst and to just "deal with it". Decided I was done doing that in April. Had MRI in July which was read as a giant cell tunor (not good). Local doc said he wasn't touching it and sent me to ortho hand surgeon.  Ended up being a faster and better surgery with a diagnosis of (benign) fibroma of tendon sheath. Yay. Followed with 6 weeks of physical therapy after sutures were removed (sutures due to ..read more

Fresh Bread: Success!

One of the things I've made off and on over the last year (and really, the last twelve years) is bread. I've tried different ways, but I've had great success with this breadbook Gluten-Free Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day  which I bought in 2016 (I found the receipt in the book the other day!).  I had really missed Artisan/crusty/peasant style bread.  Oh, the days of going to Panera are long gone, but being able to make that kind of bread, and have a meal of heart bread and great cheese are back.  When I first bought the book I did make the Mix 1 and 2 as they sug ..read more

Pork Roast Becomes More: tacos, pizza, more

I love making this pork roast.  One, because it's sooo tasty, and two because it makes me smile when I think of the first time I made it and the geriatric feline in his last year perked right up after two hours of the pork roasting, his nostrils working when his appetite was poor.  (And yes, he got some from the very middle before I shredded it and completely mixed/shredded the meat).  Pork Roast:  Roasted Pork Butt / Pork Shoulder, the simply made roast keeps on giving in so many ways!   In my oven, this cooks for 8 hours. In the electric roaster (large enough ..read more

Thanksgiving dressing--or stuffing without stuffing it in the bird, and gravy.

What do you call the side of bread with veggies?  I grew up with it called "stuffing" but some say it's 'dressing' since it 's not cooked inside the bird.  Cooking inside the bird is often said to not be good as it can inhibit the flow of warm air through the cavity of the turkey.  I also think it's just a loss *less* work to bake it in a pan than it is to stuff it in a turkey, then remove it to a dish before serving.   One of my fond memories as a child was sitting at the table in the days before Thanksgiving (it may have been the weekend before), where I opened loa ..read more

Time for Turkey

America's Thanksgiving holiday is just around the corner. I know it may seem daunting that this year of 'separate but together' we have to make our own things. Let's break it down into sections.  One of the things to consider is that instead of having "all" of the sides that you would have at a large gathering, that you pick a few that you can eat that day,  and with leftovers.  We usually travel to The Mike's family for Thanksgiving. We've already decided to stay home and safe for several reasons: we don't feel comfortable eating inside with the masks off in an intimate spac ..read more
