Those who know me know I love to cook and to eat. Few things make me happier than starting a big pot of soup, or lying in the tub reading a cookbook. There’s a reason I spent 3 years designing our kitchen! (See right.)
So here are some recipes that friends have asked me to post. There’s no rhyme or reason to this list--it’s just stuff I’ve made for friends who later asked for me the recipes. (I make a lot of stuff from cookbooks, too, but these are the recipes for which I can’t just point you to a cookbook.)
One note: I’m allergic to milk proteins, so all the following recipes are dairy-free. In the rare recipe where I use margarine, you can substitute butter. Same deal with soy milk and cow milk. Generally I avoid doing non-dairy substitutions by simply avoiding dishes that call for dairy, because non-dairy substitutes don’t taste as good as dairy. And I like food that tastes great.
In early 2011, I realized I had also become gluten intolerant, so recipes posted after that date are either gluten-free or make notes about how to make them gluten-free.
