Delicate flavor, lots of nutrition! Depending on how creamy you like your gluten-free cream of asparagus soup, you can use all milk or use part milk and part half and half. Gluten-Free Cream of Asparagus Soup Ingredients: 1 pound Asparagus, trimmed and chopped 1 Pint Water 2 tablespoons Cornstarch 1 teaspoon Salt 1 Pinch Black Pepper, to taste 2 cups Milk 2 cups Milk, or half and half 2 tablespoons Butter or Margarine Directions: If using fresh asparagus, wash the stalks, then bend near the bottom to break just above the tough part.

While we’re at home on a weekend, lunches are frequently soup and salad. When we’re on our way somewhere, though, I won’t pack soup for lunch — too messy in the car! Neither does a sandwich work, but for a different reason: my hubby carries sandwiches every weekday, so he’s willing to have something different on a weekend. I like to make something without the bread partly because it’s simpler to prepare, partly to keep our carbs down some, and partly just for the variety, to offset possible boredom from his weekday lunches. Sometimes I’ll cut roast beef cubes from a lean roast beef like I’ve mentioned before. I especially like a round eye roast, or a bottom roast cooked the […]
Trying to pack a lunch is hard enough as it is, but making it gluten-free is even harder. When my hubby and I take a trip together, I’ll often pack a lunch since that’s usually more dependable than hoping to find something gluten-free for me “on the road.” (That most likely means I’ll be having something like a bag of tortilla chips and a bag of peanuts from the vending machine.) Let me tell you that I’m not satisfied by that while smelling my husband’s hamburger and fries! I’ve learned that when I do fix myself a lunch, I’d better fix double, though, because I’ll end up sharing it with that same guy who’d otherwise be ordering a full […]
The flavors of these two beans subtly complement each other, like the visual effect does. Whether they’re the whole or cut version, they’re one of my husband’s favorites.

We normally try to eat on the healthy side of average, which means lean meat and plenty of vegetables. Once in a while we get a taste for a hot dog, but the chicken/turkey/pork varieties don’t satisfy that taste. Lean beef hot dogs do, so I’ll share that with you… … Recently we had some Hebrew National franks, which are one of the gluten-free brands we like. For information on Hebrew National labeling about gluten, look here. For the Hebrew National franks site, you can look here. Since the franks are already cooked, you just need to simmer them in a covered pan with a small amount of liquid until heated through. That liquid can be water, or it can be […]
