Curried Cauliflower with Peas Recipe

March 8th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill


A big thank you to Aida Mollenkamp (see my interview with her here) for this recipe from her recent book "Keys to the Kitchen." I have made this twice, both times with much success. The children (now almost 9 and 7) loved it as well. I put my family chef spin on it so it's not quite as spicy. I hope you'll try it, even if you think your kids are picky eaters. It's worth a shot!currycaulidish

gluten free shoppingToday I am going to share with you some tips for cooking for yourself, that I have turned into habits. These tips are helpful for anyone, but are particularly useful for those gluten-free college/ graduate students that are just starting to cook for themselves. Hope this helps.

This year Passover is from sundown on March 25 through April 1, which is great news for those who eat gluten free because a number of gluten-free products have started arriving on store shelves that are only available during Passover. Crackers, bars, macaroons, and cereal are the newest addition to the Manischewitz line of gluten-free products.25024a691138e4650bc6d859a3778192 (more…)

Orange Raspberry Blueberry Muffins Recipe

March 4th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie

I once was in a shopping mall in California (Sears, I believe), and read a screen t-shirt that was soooo hilarious to me that I took a picture of it. It said (and I quote), "Muffins are just ugly cupcakes". It had a picture of this beautifully conceited cupcake staring down its low-esteemed muffin companion.

I know - pretty mean - but I had to laugh!

Now of course, I view it as "Cupcakes are just pretty muffins with hats on", but that is neither here nor there.DSC_0239-1

Are you ready to rock your taste-buds' world? If you answered that question with a big fat “YES” then I have the recipe for you!

First step, make sure you have some gluten-free gnocchi on hand. Whether you make it yourself, or buy it premade, either will work. I used Cappello’s fresh gluten-free gnocchi for this dish.

Second step – make sure you have the rest of the ingredients for this amazeballs dish (literally, it’s amazeballs because it has two types of balls in it – gnocchi and chicken sausage meatballs).

What are your “Keys to the Kitchen”?

February 25th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

I’m lucky. I got to ask Aida this question up close and personal. If you don’t know her name, you should. Aida Mollenkamp is California-based food expert, TV host, writer, and culinary curator. She studied at the Cornell Hotel School (like me!) and Le Cordon Bleu Paris before joining CHOW.com where she worked behind the scenes as Food Editor. Eventually, she moved to television where she hosted her Food Network show Ask Aida (you get the pun now) and later the Cooking Channel show, foodCrafters.

McGnaw the Gluten-free Beaver on Colbert

February 24th, 2013 by Jennifer Harris

My husband has been watching The Colbert Report ever since its inception. Stephen Colbert plays a 'right-wing journalist' with his own flair for reporting the weekly news. Imagine my surprise when The Colbert Report came up in a Google search because of a Thought for Food bit they did on Wheat Addiction.

Wheat is parodied as 'a substance we are all addicted to' based on a CBS news report where Dr. William Davis said (more…)

Rachel Lu Muffins: Truly Homemade

February 22nd, 2013 by Candice Rose Clifford

Heading back to school means one thing when you are on a restricted diet: stock up on all your favorites which you can’t find at school. This break I didn’t do much shopping or searching for new products, instead I ate less process foods and stayed away from sandwiches. This resulted in me feeling much better. (more…)
