About this Cook
I started this blog for hyphenated cooks like me: those who need a gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and meat-free diet. I have four kids, two of whom have allergies to gluten, cane sugar, eggs, and dairy. One of them was vegetarian, and with these allergies, is now vegan. Wheat also raises my blood sugar too high. It was hard getting used to the new ingredients, but the extra bonus was 40-pound weight loss!
My favorite things to cook
I love ethnic food--Indian, Moroccan, Ethiopian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Mexican. Fortunately, ethnic foods make this hyphenated diet pretty palatable!

Best Ever Popcorn Balls
I made a perfect batch of popcorn balls for Easter with this recipe! It was quick and easy, and the popcorn balls remained easy to eat even after a couple of days. Not like my memories of practically breaking my teeth on mom's popcorn balls!

Teriyaki Marinade with Ginger and Garlic
Excellent marinade for beef, chicken or salmon. This last time, I used rice vinegar instead of red wine vinegar, left out the white wine because I didn't have any, and used barley malt instead of honey. This turned out to be quite tasty on the salmon I grilled. Next time I might try molasses, which is pretty similar to barley malt.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
A good way to turn "same ol'" into "sinful." I highly recommend using tablespoons instead of teaspoons for the measurements of peanut butter and jelly. If you're watching fat intake (if you are, why are you eating peanut butter anyway?), you can get good results by leaving out the butter and grill and just popping the sandwich into a toaster oven.
