Ready to dive into that chocolate goodness?Let me start off by saying that I don't really remember where I found these pudding packages. I think it was at my local Earth Fare but they can be purchased online at Morinaga (Mori-Nu).Have you ever noticed that whatever it is you are craving, it isn't in your house? That seems to be the case so many times for me. I think I'm going to be really good and not eat something so while I'm at the store, a conscious decision is made not to bring it home. Well......So... read more »

Potato Gnocchi sounds so innocent until the secret is revealed that it often contains wheat. Who knew, right?!
3 c Red Potatoes, cooked and shredded
1 3/4 - 2 c All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour Mix
1/2 t Salt
3 T Potato Water
You can use any type of potatoes. I like the softness this potato adds to the gnocchi and the added color the red skins provide by leaving them on.If you prefer a finer consistency in your potatoes you could mash them up a bit or use a vegetable sieve (food mill).
Using a hand mixer,... read more »
***This is not a Vegan or Gluten-Free product***I wish this were a vegan and gluten-free product.When I have been really good with my eating, I like to treat myself once in awhile with one of these patties on a salad or sandwich. Sometimes I want to be like other people. It's not good to do this to my body and the repercussions are felt.

There is something about fruit (fresh or frozen) that pairs perfectly with sweet cream. Think Strawberries and Cream, Raspberries and Cream, are you seeing what I'm seeing?This Dulce de Leche is simple enough to enjoy with fruit and complex enough to add to cake recipes, cookies, or drizzle over a bundt cake. I like to use this cream in place of canned sweet milk. Ingredients: 1/2 Cup Milk2 teaspoons Starch2 Tablespoons Butter1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar1 teaspoon Vanilla ExtractIn a sauce pan add milk and sta... read more »

I'll be the first toadmitthat the idea of Strict Vegetarianism (a.k.a. Veganism) is a foreign one to me. I'm used to this Gaucho culture that surround us in Porto Alegre, with the Barbecue in the weekends included. However, the world of vegetarian food has been interesting me for the last few years, since I decided to give it a try.
This time I went with my girlfriend to arelatively new place, called the La Rouge Bistrô. It's funny to see how a Cow is in the logo, but it does make sense: they love ... read more »
