This is a really delicious and easy treat to make! Just get a couple of mature plantains (the ones with many dark brown spots), peel them and cut diagonally across the plantain to get pieces about 1/3 inch thick. Fry them in veggie oil or butter about 10 minutes on each side. Some people sprinkle them with sugar but I prefer them plain.
Curried Homestyle Potatoes
I made these potatoes the other morning when I was feeling experimental. To be honest, I don’t entirely remember what I put in them because I always neglect to write these things down. I ate it them with a fried egg on GF rice bread with some OJ. I think it would probably be pretty good topped with some sour cream and chives. So, here is the “recipe:” Peel and cube 3 potatoes...
Veggie Tacos with Homemade Tortillas

Gingersnap Recipe (adapted from 1,000 Gluten-Free Recipes): 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter at room temperature 1 cup packed light brown sugar 1...

Chicken Curry and Coconut Rice
The comedian Mitch Hedberg once wisely said, “Rice is great if you’re hungry and want to eat two thousand of something”…And I couldn’t agree more. To keep me full this week I took a couple recipes out of Carol Fenster’s 1001 Gluten-Free Recipes cookbook: Chicken Curry and Coconut Rice. The curry is somewhat like a traditional Thai yellow curry and pairs...
