How to Make Mustard (and a recipe for Dee’s Rosemary Thyme Grainy Mustard)

But once again condiment inspiration struck me while we were in Copenhagen visiting our friends when G […]

New Year, New Beginnings and a Roasted Pepper Salsa Recipe (gluten free, dairy free, soy free)

Published by under Dee Thoughts,Gluten Free Recipes

How to Make *Perfect* Brown Rice

The complete milling and polishing that converts brown rice into white rice destroys 67% of the vitamin B3, 80% of […]

Earth’s Own – Almond Fresh Milk

A few months ago, Earth’s Own approached me and asked me to review their “Almond Fresh” milk products on my blog. I was pretty excited because it meant that (a) I get to promote something I already use everyday and love,  and (b) I have a $20 voucher to give away for Earth’s Own Products […]

Bean Cooking Chart

Published by under Dee Thoughts,Helpful Websites!

Since I’ve been cooking a lot with beans this weekend (and FYI  – when you use *dry* beans and rinse them well after soaking/cooking there is little to no resulting fartiness!) I thought I’d share a site I’ve found *very* useful…and that is also making me desire a pressure cooker for Christmas… *lol* WOW does […]

Weekly Meal Plan – May 29 – June 4

Published by under Dee Thoughts,Weekly Meal Plan

I’m feeling some guilt for letting my blog go for a WHOLE MONTH…but at the same time, not kicking myself too hard for it. I got busy and stopped cooking. And stopped meal planning. Got lazy with my supplements…and I got sick. Had no energy. Felt like crap. First Stefan was sick, then I was […]

Weekly Meal Plan – April 17 to 23, 2011

Published by under Dee Thoughts,Weekly Meal Plan

OK so I’ve been asked to share what a typical kind of week is for us meal-plan wise. Now to be 100% honest, we’ve been a little weak on sticking to a meal plan recently, what with visitors from Sweden,  then my birthday week (which including many nights eating out)…so this is a good week […]

Every month she rounds up newsworthy items, recipes…all kinds of great gluten-free information! (If you’re not already subscribed I highly suggest it!)
