- basic sauce, w/ fresh tomatoe puree as a base
- Cabot 75% fat free cheese
I don't have a recipe. A friend of mine told me she found it works better just to substitute gluten-free flour for regular, so that's what my first attempt will be. I might add an egg to hold it together better though.

I'd love a good chocolate chip cookie recipe. The ones I made yesterday were nasty! I guess I'm just not used to the taste of the rice flour. Maybe I just need a better flour recommendation for things like cookies.

Actually there are a lot of better and more versatile flours out there now like Aramanth, Sourgum, etc. Becareful because Spelt and Kamut are NOT GF. As soon as I find my chocolate chip recipe I will PM you.

Hi, B'sgirl. Are you familiar with the Gluten-Free Goddess site?

She has a few chocolate-chip cookie recipes. HTH.

It's Wednesday night dinner with friends. My town is having its first Restaurant Week, where restaurants offer 3-course, fixed price meals for $20 or $30, so we're heading to a seafood place tonight. DH is driving back from a conference, so he's on his own.

I've been eating a lot of heavy beef lately, so unfortunately the ribeyes in the freezer will have to wait (at least until the weekend!) and I might just grill up some really spicy chicken kabob sort of thing.
WooHoo, RP! That's a very nice birthday gift! I think some grilled fish or seafood and grilled veggies would taste fantastic. Grilled pineapple is yummy. Also, salmon in foil pouches - no clean up. Anyway, congrats on your shiny, new toy!

Tonight will be the beef with tomato and pepper stir fry I didn't cook last night.

Off to make the pear pie now. I've been out working in the garden since I got home from work. The pie will be a nice treat after all that hauling and tilling.

Then you wouldn't mind if I take a spin on your bike.

Nice grill, Randall. I just got a new one last year and LOVE it! Just gotta get used to all that heat over the old grill and you'll be set. (nice looking scoot in the background, too)

I'm having a grilled ribeye and baked potato, broccoli, mushrooms, garlic bread and a salad. I'm starving and just waiting for the steak to thaw.....

Cade and I made some pasties today as well as trying some peanut butter cookies with egg, splenda and the Laura Schudders peanut butter the kind you have to stir the oil back into...he wanted to make cookies for his aunty who has diabetes so we divided the dough, his had a mix of peanut butter and chocolate chips in it and for his aunty no chips.. Back to dinner, with the pasties, a tossed salad, watercress,toasted walnuts, dried cranberries and evoo and pomegranite vinegar..dessert, why peanut butter cookies of course
