Gluten-Free Potatoes with Olive Oil & Parsley in the Slow Cooker

The simplest ideas are sometimes the most useful. This is a simple recipe and it is that simplicity that makes it so good. I did these potatoes in my slow cooker so I made them “on autopilot” while I did other things.
I made the potatoes shown in the picture in the slow cooker as cubed potatoes with olive oil & parsley for seasoning.
Quartered or cubed potatoes with your favorite seasonings would work just as well. I served these recently for dinner with what I call a mini-meat loaf.

Gluten-Free Trail Mix Makes Healthy Snacks

Preparing healthy snacks is usually time-consuming  The good news is that not every snack has to be complicated or time-consuming to be healthy.  Gluten-free trail mix can be as healthy as you want it to be. Quick to make.  Quick to pack.  Easy to carry.  Nutrition on the go.  Those are good reasons to make some with your own favorite ingredients. When I happen to look at what’s available in vending machines or checkout lanes in many places, I’m appalled by how much of it is high in refined sugars and high in salt. They can also be high in volume or quantity. Look at how many “servings” of peanuts are usually in a simple bag of peanuts – two […]

Easy Yellow Split Pea Soup in the Slow Cooker

This winter we’ve been adding more color and flavor to our meals by making our own soups, just like this Yellow Split Pea Soup. It’s so attractive with its yellow color, especially with some fresh parsley to top it.

Some recipes include a ham bone with split peas, but I think yellow split peas have enough flavor on their own that a good stock is sufficient to make a satisfying soup. In the slow cooker, with your favorite stock, this makes a filling dish, suitable for lunch or a light supper. This could easily be vegetarian or vegan by using your favorite vegetable stock.

Rice Grits for a Whole Grain Cereal with Brown Sugar, Cinnamon and Currants

Have you ever had grits?

I absolutely love them on a cold winter’s morning. Grits make a delicious, hot, creamy whole grain cereal that you can top with brown sugar, cinnamon and currants or raisins.

Grits are most commonly made from corn. But grits can also come from rice or other grains. The broken pieces of grain – the “shorts,” “brokens” or “middlins,” better known in the U.S. of A. as “Grits” – readily cook into a variety of dishes.

Floride Pamplemousses, Sucré, à la Jami

For those who don’t speak French, I’m remembering a family friend who just turned 20 a few weeks ago and who gave my husband, Al, what I think is a great idea. A loose translation of the title might be “Florida Grapefruit, Sweetened, by Jami.” Here’s the story…

… I had to skip church Sunday because of something that was going on at home (we were watching a friend’s 2 dogs plus 1 of our own, it was raining, etc… just one of those weekends). Anyway, while at church, Al saw our friend Jami standing in the foyer with a grapefruit in her hand, eating it like an orange… or something that wasn’t sour, so, naturally, she immediately caught his attention. To put it succinctly… He was horrified!

If you know Al, you would also know that in addition to being the…

Easy Banana Bread Recipe

This easy banana bread recipe has been a favorite of ours for a long time. We like it every season of the year, and we especially like to have some for gluten-free snacks.

It tastes good alone, but it also is great with a flavored spread like apple butter or pumpkin cream. If I cut regular slices from the loaf like you see in the picture, they are so good to eat plain that we often don’t even think of adding something to them before the whole loaf is gone…especially if I leave it where my husband can see it.
