Greens and Goat Cheese “Muffin”

This muffin is more like a mini-soufflé than a muffin, and it is a delightful, rich, joyful way to eat a pile of veggies for breakfast or snack.  If you’re not familiar with goat cheese, I recommend finding a local farmer to buy from or talk with your grocer about what they’ve got.  You’ll need a soft …Read More

Sweet potato hash is such a joyful, filling, warming dish, great for breakfast and dinner alike.

Oat Kefir Pancakes

These are so easy breezy that I am deeply in love.  With a pancake.  I have been adventuring with gluten-free options due to an auto-immune condition, so it’s so joyful to find simple bready options that satisfy.  I’m loving Jamie Oliver’s new work, and this was inspired by the oat cottage cheese pancakes in his recent blog post. …Read More

Gluten-free Crepes (sweet or savory)

I found this recipe a couple of years ago, and it has become one of my favorites for a little treat.  It can be made either sweet like this one, or savory (just leave out the vanilla and sweetener).  The texture will be a little thicker and rougher than crepes made with finer flours, but …Read More
