Been A While!

20 Dec

Hey everyone! I wholeheartedly apologize for the delay in posts and look forward to getting back into my blogging. As for the flood of excuses, I went into December knowing it would be a hectic, expensive, and tiring among other things. We started off with a prompt December 1st blanketing of snow which dethrones the rules of the road making for an overall stressful experience getting anywhere, especially the grocery store. Tre and I had our final exams which is a nightmarish experience at best, with almost 3 weeks dedicated to studying and a relapse into what I’d consider an “undergrad” diet. Then, we enter right into the holiday — the perfect storm of craziness between end-of-year responsibilities at work, braving the retail storm in an attempt to get everyone on my Christmas list hooked up with sweet presents, dealing with an inevitable stress-induced emotional breakdown, and making an effort to accept snow as a regular installment for the next few months of my life. To say the least, it’s a lot.

A WCSR-free Thanksgiving

30 Nov

Yes my friends, this is stuffing! Wheat, corn, rice, and soy-free stuffing that looked AND tasted like the real thing!

Yes, Thanksgiving was last week, hence the lack of posts here and general early-winter disarray. Tre and I were off enjoying our first WCRS-free holiday with a surprising amount of success. Thanks to a number of prolific gluten-free bloggers out there as well as some good old fashioned elbow grease and family support, I was able to create a few fun treats for Tre including stuffing, chocolate cake, double chocolate cookies, and gravy for Thanksgiving dinner and dessert.

In an unexpected departure from my normal cooking routine, I packed up my ingredients and trucked across town to my parents’ house (notice in the picture no BLUE counters). I love cooking with my mom and she was super-helpful when it came to turning my almond flour and flax bread into stuffing and was welcome company on my “black Wednesday” trip to the grocery store for forgotten ingredients.

Stay tuned for recipes, but in the meantime, stay warm! Here in NY it’s getting cold!
