Mustard-Roasted Potatoes with Dill

I used to think that mashed potatoes were my ultimate comfort food. I was wrong. Mashed potatoes can sometimes be too smooth, or not creamy enough, or so filled with butter that the guilt outweighs the comfort. (Don’t get me wrong, though—perfect mashed potatoes are akin to heaven!)

Gluten-Free Apple Pie with Crumb Topping

If my husband had his way, I’m pretty sure he’d want apple pie–with vanilla ice cream, of course–for every meal. Alas, since our physical hearts probably can’t take it (although our metaphorical hearts would be in heaven!), I try to … Continue reading


Luscious Gluten-Free Fresh Berry Tart

This week was the last week for blueberries at the farmers’ market, and considering how much joy they’ve brought me this summer, I felt like they deserved an honorable send-off for the season. Little did I know that a gluten-free … Continue reading


Variations on Basil Pesto

As summer begins to draw to a close, it’s time for me to share my main weapon for taming a basil forest (and also impressing guests with a fresh but simple summertime meal): basil pesto. It’s amazing as a base … Continue reading
