OH NOOOO!

I know to stay away from treats that contain artificial flavouring because these products contain gluten. But discovering that this contains gluten just makes me sad.


Beware of chocolate bunnies and have a safe Easter.

Curry Cauliflower Soup


Oh my goodnes, this bowl of soup will go down as the best bowl of soup I have ever made. The recipe is from the Looneyspoons Collection. And I just tweaked it a bit according to the items that I had on hand. 

Since I didn't have evaporated milk, I substituted coconut milk. What is curried food without fresh ginger? So, I threw in some of that. I didn't have Swiss cheese so I substituted it with Sovrano, a hard ripened cheese. And I believe that is it for changes to a fabulous recipe.  

It is the perfect soup to take off the chill from yesterday's snow.

Cookbook Love

I made a tray of Ooo-la-la-sagna from one of my favourite cookbooks, The Looneyspoons Collection. I left out the red pepper flakes since I used hot Italian sausage in this recipe. Oh and I threw in some chopped sweet yellow peppers and shallots. I also used gluten-free lasagna noodles (corn and quinoa) that I didn't have to pre-cook--easy!  


Seriously, if you don't have this cookbook in your collection this is one that you should pick up and they have many gluten-free recipes in here too. The recipes that are not gluten-free are easily adaptable like the sweet potato crust on their Hungry Guy Chicken Pies recipe. I just substitute gluten-free flour for the regular flour they call for in the recipe and it worked out great.

I haven't found a recipe in this book that I don't love.

Baked Eggs


Marinated Artichoke Hearts
Red Peppers
Eggs
Shallots
Ham
Gluten-free bread crumbs

Mozzarella Cheese

This time I layered the marinated artichoke hearts on the bottom of the buttered dish. I enjoyed the tender texture of the artichokes using this method.
