On a hot summer day, a scoop of tangy, creamy, crunchy potato salad makes a great gluten-free side dish.

Honey drizzled over warm cornbread…wonderful! Raspberry preserves spread over a another wedge…delicious!
During a week of making extra-easy meals, I really enjoyed a simple pan of crusty cornbread. Some of it went with soup. I toasted another wedge in the oven to go with chili and beans. The last piece was pan-grilled to go with eggs for breakfast.

As fresh asparagus begins to show up in the produce market in abundance, I find many recipes to enjoy it – soups, salads, sides, quiches – you get the idea. The best way to enjoy it, though, is perhaps the simplest – pan-grilled in a little oil (or, if you’re like my husband, in a little butter) until crisp-tender, with simple herbs and maybe a squeeze of lemon just before serving. This is cooking gluten-free, making food everyone will like.
