What does one do when stuck inside during a blizzard? Make cookies of course. And if you live in the mid-Atlantic region of the country, you know what I’m talking about. I’m just hoping I can go to work sometime next week. If not, I guess I’ll just make more cookies:) I hope that if you’re also in the middle of the storm, you are home safe and cozy with heat and a batch of fresh baked cookies yourself.
Have you ever wondered how to make a very tender and delicious beef stir fry? It is easy to mess up a beef stir fry recipe and end with meat that is tough and chewy. How tender the meat turns out depends upon the cut of meat you use as well as the way it is cooked. Plus, if you’re using grass-fed beef, it cooks faster than regular beef and needs to be removed earlier.
These cut-out cookies are awesome, you wouldn’t know that they are egg, nut and grain-free! We have been enjoying baking with gelatin so much lately – yay! It really holds the baked goods together so nicely, making them crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
My friend recently went to Italy and told me all she wanted to do was walk to see all the beautiful scenery, and eat the wonderful food – especially the gelalto. She loved it so much she got a cookbook for making gelato and when I was at her house, I was pretty much drooling over the recipes. I also noticed something in the book called granitas, which are yummy little Italian ices.
Being on a limited diet is one thing. But traveling on a limited diet? I have personally avoided getting on a plane and traveling long distances because it is difficult to do so on such a limited diet. It’s not impossible, but the autoimmune protocol is one of the more limited diets which makes traveling very difficult.
By now you have probably heard about turmeric or curcumin and it’s amazing anti-inflammatory properties. I had read about it and started encapsulating dried turmeric to help with my headaches last fall. But it wasn’t until I started working with my doctor (who is wonderful) that I realized that the regular culinary form of turmeric wasn’t going to cut it when it came to really helping me with my inflammation. Or, I was going to have to take a LOT of it to notice a difference.
I’ve been making these cod cakes for my client and she has been loving them. If you are someone who doesn’t like salmon very much and prefers white fish, you will probably love them. Plus they are nut-free which is an extra added benefit for those of you who can’t have nuts. I hope you enjoy them!
Happy Spring and for those who celebrate, Happy Easter! Spring is my favorite time of year and I think probably everybody’s favorite this year after the harsh winter we had. I’m grateful for the warm days we’ve had and the blossoming trees.
Happy Valentine’s Day! When I was a kid, my mom made Valentine’s heart cakes with a heart cake mold and then brought them to school for Valentine’s Day. These were the days before we knew about my food allergies. The cakes were super moist, yummy and frosted with pink frosting with a red heart in the middle. Yum!
