About this Cook
I'm allergic to gluten and soy, so I have been forced to learn how to cook nearly everything, since almost all our foods are prepared with these ingredients now. I'm a food activist - for organic, local, and sustainable foods. I also wish to remove genetically-modified foods from nearly everything we eat to protect the diversity of foods that will end up dying off if we keep breeding only 1 variety of each type of food. Remember Ireland's potato famine? There used to be 8000 varieties of potatoes, now there are 4. When disease strikes, we are going to be in big trouble.
My favorite things to cook
Chana Masala; Artichoke Risotto; Stir-fry veggies with rice & beans, cheese & eggs; homemade corn tortillas, gluten-free corn muffins
My favorite family cooking traditions
Unfortunately I can no longer eat most of my favorite family recipes because they all have gluten - swedish pancakes, swedish meatballs, banana bread, crab rolls (nummy!!!), etc.
My cooking triumphs
Borscht, Sizzling Black Bean Soup, creating my own healthy version of "A-1" sauce without any of the traditional ingredients to marinate buffalo steaks! nummy!
My cooking tragedies
I honestly can't think of any. I am very observant & I don't leave the kitchen, so no fires. And I taste as I go & I've figured out how to compensate for flavors, so nothing's ever tasted horrible. Of course, I've never TRIED making souffle, so maybe when I do that might be one. ;)

Quinoa and Black Beans
I was a bit leery of how much I would like this since quinoa can be sour-tasting, but it was DELICIOUS! I wish I had doubled the recipe and frozen half for the next week too - definitely do it! It was great with avocado slices and tortilla strips! Also, add a red bell pepper or roma tomato wedges if you have - lovely!

Apple Gouda Quesadillas
As someone who is gluten-free, I used corn tortillas instead. Instead of green onions, I mixed a drizzle of maple syrup into the mustard and spread on with the back of the spoon first. Then I layered cooked turkey bacon, thin apple slices and some shredded gouda on top. Sandwiched between two corn tortillas, heated in a hot cast iron pan over medium heat til cheese was melted - DELICIOUS! Cut into 4 slices to serve and garnish with remaining apple slices and some parsley or other green.

Ruth's Red Lentil and Potato Soup
Delicious, but I'd love to know what I can substitute for file powder!
