Ground Pork meatloaf with mushroom gravy and brussel sprouts. TB had potatoes and raw veggies instead of the sprouts!

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

I made a Serious Eats recipe tonight: Honey-Soy Glazed Salmon with Bok Choy. I'm trying to make friends with salmon since it's supposed to be good for you. After tonight, we're still at the acquaintances stage - someone you visit with about once or twice a year. Himself kept saying "the bok choy is really good"...

I did the bok choy a bit differently than suggested. I seared it a bit in a bit of toasted sesame and vegetable oils, then poured in a little of the marinade along with some water, covered to steam it a bit, then took the lid off to reduce the liquids. Served everything up with a bit of TJ's brown basmati rice.

I'll just show you the salads, since they were so pretty

I had a cucumber salad with wasabi dressing (sinus-clearing! Whew!) and DH had an avocado salad with mixed greens.

Big Brag!

As some of you may know, I made most of the Thanksgiving feast for my husband and his family (mother, sister and her husband, and his nephew). The only contributions to the feast made by other family members: Mom made the dressing and sweet potato casserole, and Sis made the green bean casserole. I will not comment on either, except to say I was thankful that these holiday staples were taken out of my hands!

The turkey was the star of course. I used the method and recipe from Americaís Test Kitchen, and even though my bird was 5 lbs larger than the one in the recipe, it came out picture perfect! And in less than five hours! I did fill the cavity with aromatics, and massaged softened compound butter under the skin before roasting.

My cranberry sauce was good, a little too tart perhaps. Cranberry sauce is easy, though.

Gluten-free dinner rolls were a qualified success. They were a bit to dense and dry, more like biscuits than rolls. A generous application of compound butter made them palatable, though. My whole wheat rolls, on the other hand, were OUTSTANDING! I credit their success to Bobís Ted Mill Whole Wheat Flour, and itís distinctive nutty flavor, and to two teaspoons of gluten that I added to the recipe. Really REALLY good bread dough thatís very versatile.

The braised red cabbage, also from Americaís Test Kitchen, was delicious, popular, and very easy to make. It wouldíve been even easier if Iíd taken a mandolin along, or a food processor.

Butternut squash soup was and always will be a hit. I need say no more.

The surprise of the feast, though, for me was the gluten-free coffee cake. I have NEVER had better coffee cake! Iím going to make it again and again, and Iím not gonna tell a SOUL that itís gluten free! Moist, dense, sweet, nutty, it is the perfect accompaniment for after dinner coffee or drinks, and a must have for the next dayís brunch. Here is the recipe: Gluten-Free Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe - Genius Kitchen You can add some chocolate bits and/or some raisins or fruit to the topping; I would only add them to the middle layer, as the top has no moisture and tends to get a little brown - the fruit might burn on the top. Do not fail to make this recipe!

A very satisfying experience, with the added pleasure of seeing my adopted family enjoying my efforts. On to Christmas! (Beef Wellington, I think!)

Dance like no oneís watching, sing like no oneís listening, but cook like EVERYONE is eating!
