New Year’s Eve and Belle is working on her laptop. Thought I would make a snack for her. Somehow I thought it might make the work bearable. The recipe was for 24 oysters but I only made 5 so I changed the amounts and didn’t have arugula but had her favourite kale. I picked up [...]
Jicama is a wonderful vegetable. Looks like a potato, tastes like an apple. I tell Dylan it is a Mexican apple. He likes it.

Another play date for Dylan and a chance to try and make some good Gluten Free food. It is very difficult to make vegan gluten free but you can if you experiment with a lot of combinations however today, I was not going to be eating the pizza so I did not make it vegan, [...]
