Ways to Use Fresh Tomatoes #9,921: Mozzarella and Tomato Sandwiches.

The little bodega down the road mysteriously manages to sell Jersey tomatoes cheaper than the farmer’s market. I don’t ask her to divulge secrets – I just look the other way and have enjoyed inexpensive fruits all summer long. With this latest batch we made mozzarella-tomato sandwiches two ways, vegan/gluten free and regular. For the […]

Glutino Gluten Free Table Crackers (7oz)

The Glutino focuses on the growing, lucrative Gluten Free market. I picked up these crackers on sale for $2.99 at Lifethyme green market in the West Village NYC. It’s a cute box. Each plank of crackers is two pieces which are easily broken apart. They have that brittleness and crunch of non-gf water crackers and […]

Black-Eyed Pea Dip Recipe (Georgian Lobio Variation, Vegan, Gluten Free)

Normally, the delicious Georgian dip lobio is made with red beans as posted about here.

These legumes, while delicious are milder than the traditional so I kicked up the seasoning a bit. The end result […]

Review: Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Biscuit Mix

I don’t generally buy or make biscuits at home but Bob’s was on sale and featured a cheddar biscuit recipe a la Red Lobster. It was a fairly simply recipe involving throwing a few things into a bowl and mixing. After a judicious cheesing and buttering we were good to go. In keeping with tradition […]

Updated: Krish Classic Jeera Khakhra Review (Wheat Crisps)

Good news, gluten free folks: I’d posted about Krish Classic Khakra back in January of 2013. The product featured the words “gluten free” despite clearly being “wheat” based. Recently someone from the company followed up to say that they’ve removed the words “gluten free” so there is no confusion. It’s a tasty product and I’m […]

Vegetarian Pad Thai Recipe

Arguably, there isn’t anything more satisfying than a bowl of noodles. Well perhaps more satisfying is a glass of riesling with said bowl of noodles. Pad Thai is one of those dishes, like biryani that we’d tried to make a few years back but failed spectacularly. They ended up mushy and the tamarind concentrate tasted […]

This is one of the reasons they’re promoting it in […]

Indian Biryani Recipe

Biryani is one of those dishes associate with special occasions like pujas, parties or weddings. It’s a little bit of effort to get everything in the pot, but the end result is very worth it. All the spices cook into the rice to make an amazing one pot meal. It’s highly customizable – veggies and […]
