Oat Cookies that Embrace Complexity (gluten-free)

I was raised by a single mom.  She married my kind, adventurous and frequently infuriating step father when I was nine,  but, by then a complicated child rearing system was well in place.  The system involved grandparents, the expectation that

This tart would be good as part of a fancy tea menu, although I mostly packed it for lunch and ate it along with cold soup.  Are you noticing the packed lunch theme across the recent posts here?  That is

Buttermilk Chive Spoonbread (Gluten-Free)

Here is another dish that I plan to make for Thanksgiving.  It is a spoonbread, which is basically a cross between a custard and a cornbread.  If you have gluten-free eaters to feed on Thanksgiving this is a very good

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Kim Chee Sauce

Golden Split Pea Fritters with Bacon and Chanterelle Mushrooms (Gluten-free or not)

The beauty of this fritter recipe is that it combines very expensive ingredients (chanterelle) with very cheap ingredients (yellow split peas).  Yellow split peas are among my favourite legumes.  They have a cheerful color, a sweet flavour and a texture
