Soaked Gluten Free Cornbread & Lifeway Kefir Review

Tweet I wanted to make a soaked gluten free baked good. I’ve soaked gluten free steel cut oatmeal before, but this is a different animal (or grain should I say) all together. This time I didn’t just usr a teeny bit of whey in some water. In this recipe I used kefir to soak the flour and cornmeal in. Kefir is a close cousin of yogurt, and has been around for over 2000 years. I have been buying Lifeway Kefir, and I find that I really enjoy it. I bought Read More …

For an extremely simple pie crust recipe I always go to Bob’s Red Mill for the Easy as Pie Crust Read More …

Restaurant Review: Maui Tacos & Lentil Spinach Tacorritos (a recipe)

Tweet    Tacorritos! Hola! There is a restaurant here in Hawaii(and apparently elsewhere across the US) called Maui Tacos, and I will share some information on them with you, but tonight I made tacos for dinner.

I eat corn, and I actually now have a preference for corn tortillas. My dad told me that there is a taco stand down the road from his house Read More …
