Happy 2011!

As 2010 comes to a close, I know that so much of what made the year good for me was you–readers and other bloggers–who have stopped by to read this blog and have left your wonderful comments, suggestions, and continued support through it all. As I’ve said before, I’d have no […]


Eggplant “Bacon” (Vegan, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, ACD Friendly)

[You have blown me away with all your responses to my call for recipe testers–thanks to everyone who sent emails! I’ll be taking names/email addresses until early next week, so if you’re interested, please send an email to dietdessertdogsATgmailDOTcom with the subject line, “BREAKFAST TESTER.” I’ll get back to everyone later in the […]


Blog Updates: Calling All Vegan Bloggers, Gluten Free Bloggers, Healthy Lifestyle Bloggers, Whole Foods Bloggers and Sugar-Free Eaters!

How’s that for a long blog post title? (I seem to be getting more and more loquacious these days. I mean, what is it about selecting a gargantuan word when a diminutive one will do?–oooops, there I go again. . . .).

Along with more ice and snow, resolve to lose […]


Christmas, 2010 Recap: Don’t Mess with Tradition (and African Sweet Potato Stew)

Last Minute Recipe Suggestions

Who’s ready to celebrate?

With all of my 175 students’ assignments, exams and final marks finally submitted–I am now officially on holidays until 2011–whoo hoo! That makes me one very celebratory gal. Par-tay, I say!

And how about having everything all ready to start cooking my big holiday meal?

Um, no. (Insert sheepish […]


Holiday Nog (Egg-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Soy-free, Gluten-free, Vegan)

Sometimes with food, you experience the same coup de foudre as love at first sight. You might spy a mille-feuille (aka Napoleon or custard slice) in the glass pastry case and know just by looking that you’d relish those myriad strata of light, flaky pastry, cool, smooth custard sandwiched between them. […]


Butter Berry Cake Bars*

*no, of course it’s not dairy butter, silly! The “butter” comes from “butterscotch,” which is what these babies taste like to me. I could have called them “berryscotch,” but that sounded too much like an alcoholic beverage. 😉

Two posts in one day–am I mad?? No, just behind on my posting […]


A Gluten Free Holiday VI: Holiday Desserts

Before I get to today’s post, I wanted to thank everyone for your comments on yesterday’s “What I Eat” post. I am really loving the conversation that’s going on–please add your own two cents!

Can you believe it’s the last installment in the “A Gluten Free Holiday” series? It’s been great […]


My Way of Eating*
