I don’t always complain about Italy. And, I’ll never complain about Lucia. Lucia is a friend of mine who helps me around the house to do jobs that I can’t do thanks to the herniated disks and crushed vertebrae I’ve collected over the years. Her husband has Crohn’s disease and has so many… MORE

About this Cook
American living between Italy and Belgium. I'm married to an Italian and I am a mom to three Italian/American girls - all teenagers with bottomless pit stomachs. I'm also a celiac sufferer and allergic to ALL seafood, which is a huge bummer. I don't know which I like more, airplanes or food but can say I don't care for airplane food!
My favorite things to cook
Sweet and savoury whatevers, doesn't mean that my creations are always appetizing. I like trying to adapt gluten recipes with non gluten alternatives. I enjoy the challenge. I prefer to use ingredients from their raw state or as least processed as possible. Mixing different types of GF ingredients is very interesting for learning their qualities. Most of the things I flub up get turned into pie crusts, coatings for baked chicken or bases for other dishes. It's like chemistry lab but you can eat the experiment. I also enjoy trying new ingredients found during my travels.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Burning bread. I get it from my mom. My dad taught me how to choose the worst line at the grocey store. :-)
My cooking triumphs
If I can keep my three teenagers full and still have enough money to pay the light bill, it's a triumph!!
My cooking tragedies
I can't seem to make a decent Gluten Free pizza crust from scratch. Grump, grump.

Vegan Lentil Salad
The kidney bean, corn, lentil and fresh parsley combination in this recipe is exquisite. Unfortunately the amount of "dressing" in this recipe overrides that flavour. Next time, I will half the amount of vinegar/oil and omit the sugar completely. Thank you Kelly for your recipe.

Cheap and Easy Lentil Salad
An interesting flavour and texture mixing kidney beans, corn and lentils. I cooked the lentils in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes instead of in a saucepan as directed. I don't know what balsamic vinaigrette is, so I just used balsamic vinegar. I will leave out the sugar the next time. Make sure the lentils are al dente to achieve a nice balance of texture as well as flavour. I used French Green Puy lentils but imagine that brown lentils would work just as well here, making it even cheaper lentil salad. :-)Thank you kelly for your recipe.
