Foolproof Salmon & Brussels Sprouts

I did a very bad job menu planning this week.  I’m not sure what was going on in my brain but it wasn’t focused on menu planning.  My menu was: Labor intensive; All new recipes; One recipe included 3-cups of milk, a no-no for a lactose intolerant husband; One recipe called for ingredients I wasn’t familiar with and couldn’t get. One meal included two dishes that needed to be cooked at … [Read more...]

We’re settling back in to gluten free cooking and eating, and thanks to a couple of great gluten free recipe magazines, that’s going well. But we’ve had a slight glitch in the menu planning.  It seems that David also has a beef allergy.  Several times after he’s eaten beef he’s developed hives.  Fortunately Benadryl takes care of it but we’ve been trying to figure out what was causing it.  … [Read more...]
