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. Discard the tough part; chop the rest. Cook asparagus in boiling water in covered 2-quart saucepan until tender (just takes a few minutes once it’s boiling); drain, reserving […]

Enjoying the sun and the daffodils today, encouraging the dog to chase off those voracious squirrels that make our birdfeeder their all-day banquet, cleaning up some winter litter from the yard — this is not a day that I want to spend much time cooking. Time to pull out the shrimp from the freezer and make a quick meal that will be on the low-fat side. Not completely low-fat — after all, I can’t make it too low-fat or my husband will rebel against such “healthy” eating! The shrimp and garlic dish is excellent as is, and the sugar snap peas with carrots and onions is also wonderful as it is, so I’ll actually cook them as two separate dishes, […]
You can serve this as an appetizer with a relish tray of celery and carrot sticks, broccoli and cauliflower florets, pepper strips, blue corn tortilla chips, G.F. rice crackers and G.F. pita chips. Or, put some in a lunch box with…

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 cubes from a lean roast beef like I’ve mentioned before. I especially like a round eye roast, or a bottom roast cooked the same way, […]
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 […]
