Gluten Free Gravy Recipe

November 8th, 2012 by Amy Fothergill


If you think making homemade gravy is harder than the SAT’s, think again.

Instead of using a gluten-based roux (butter and flour), start using slurries.

A slurry is a combination of a starch and cold water (equal parts) which are mixed into a hot liquid like chicken or turkey broth.

The ratio that I use which seems to work well is: (more…)

“Add What You Like” Turkey Burgers

November 1st, 2012 by Candice Rose Clifford

Yummy turkey burgers! Healthy AND delicious!

Being sick at a young age and having to go to numerous doctors has made me more aware of my body. I know when I feel great and I know when something’s “off”. When I realized food was the culprit of my illness I was persistent until we got answers. There were times I wanted to back down and settle because I was tired of fighting, but thank god I didn’t.

Although I have an amazing team of doctors supporting me, I have learned I’m my own body’s expert. I know what foods make my stomach hurt and I know what (more…)

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Roasted Almonds Recipe

October 23rd, 2012 by Chrissy and Lauren

I have a new addiction. It happens to be to these Pumpkin Pie Roasted Almonds.

I…I….I…..just don’t know what to say. They are perfectly crunchy, pleasantly pumpkin-spiced, and they have a great balance between salty and sweet.

These almonds are subtle. They don’t walk into a room and yell obnoxious things, but rather they are comforting and pleasant to be around. This is why I have been keeping a little jar of them with me at all times. (more…)

I ate a lot this weekend. Way too much actually…in a good way.

For my Dad’s birthday dinner, my mom and I made Ina Garten’s God-sent Truffled Macaroni & Cheese. Despite the loan she had to take out to buy the truffle butter and exotic mushrooms, it was by far the best mac n’ cheese ever.

Let’s just say, it’s going to be rough getting used to plain ‘ol mac n’ cheese after that eye opening experience.

Now, I’m not advocating going into debt over truffle butter, but if anything is worth over spending, this recipe is it.

We also had some extremely gourmet rib eye. Coated with McCormicks grill seasoning, seared on the charcoal barbeque, and finished off with (more…)

I have this strange habit.  I sign up for a challenge, accomplish it, and then stop. Cold turkey.

On Memorial Day weekend, I ran a marathon.  A FULL marathon.  My FIRST marathon.  That was FOUR months ago.  I haven’t run outside since crossing that finish line…well, except to see who just fell off the monkey bars at recess.  Three years ago, I finished anOlympic length triathlon.  I swam, I biked, I ran.  But after finishing that event, the bike sat in the garage, and I don’t think I’ve entered a (more…)

Fall is here! My favorite time of year. At school we have a Starbucks on each campus I see everyone enjoying the pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffees etc. and it drives me crazy that I can just run in and grab one of those delicious looking muffins with the cream cheese on them… (more…)
