About this Cook
I found out in Sept. 07 that I have Crohn's disease. The medicine combos my doc was putting me on weren't working so she wanted to switch me to meds that cost $3000/month. That wasn't an option so I looked online and found the Specific Carbohydrate Diet that addresses gut problems. I've been on the diet since Jan 5, 08 and have never felt better. If you are or someone you know has Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, Celiac, or chronic IBS and meds aren't working for them, check out (If you decide to do the diet, make sure you follow the introductory phase. has a good guide for introducing new foods that really worked well for me.)
My favorite things to cook
Healthy food that keeps my guts happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I make desserts, my daughter is the dedicated licker...icing, the brownie batter bowl, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook all over again with no lactose, gluten, disaccharides, sugar, and certain starches has been hard, but well worth it to have a happy gut.
My cooking tragedies
Pre - SCD - rice dishes, chicken and dumplings and lemon chicken. Since SCD - everything cooking wise is going well.

Greek Salad III
MMMMMM this recipe was really good. The leftovers got better and better. I can't have feta so I used blue cheese but that was the only change I HAD to make. Thanks for posting this recipe. I'm making it again tonight.

The Real Mojito
YUM YUM. The only thing I did different was to use honey because I can't have disaccharides. If you don't have rum, you can use vodka!!!

Fresh Tomato Salsa
For fast and fresh with ingredients I had on hand, this was good though it didn't have enough flavor for me so I added extra lime and a garlic clove. When I'm in a hurry I will make it again.
