Better gluten-free popovers

  I posted a recipe for gluten-free popovers in the post A Menu in Honour of Broccoli Soup. I’ve been experimenting, and I think that this recipe is better.  It uses Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free flour mix (Garbanzo, fava bean, tapioca and sourghum flours with potato starch)  instead of the rice, tapioca and potato mix…

Lard Have Mercy! Gluten-Free, Pro-Glutton Buttermilk Biscuits!

At this time of year,  I choose comfort over creativity.  I am really not all that interested in trying out new foods.  All I really want to do is cook the things that I traditionally cook at this time of year.  Here is an example:  For Thanksgiving I made three pies and, for the first…

Ideas for Thanksgiving Dinner

Last year,  I posted all of my Thanksgiving recipes the week after the holiday.  I realized that this was not very helpful.  Here are links to all of the recipes that we have posted that would be great for a Thanksgiving meal.  Next year, maybe we will get it together to do this for Canadian…

Seville Orange Marmalade with Whiskey and Brown Sugar

Last year, a dear friend of ours returned from a trip to Australia and gave us a fabulous jar of whisky marmalade as a gift.  This is a perfect gift for me, because I LOVE marmalade, but it’s also risky.  I am a woman who has some very strong opinions about marmalade.  Luckily, the whisky…

The Right Kind of Marmalade- Made with Bitter Seville Oranges

I have a lot to say about marmalade.  If you want to read a lot of personal marmalade stories from my childhood, college years and young adulthood read on.  If you just want a recipe for marmalade scroll to the bottom! I grew up eating marmalade with butter on the world’s best scones, baked by…
