All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour Blend

All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour Blend

I have been trying for a few years to perfect the perfect all-purpose gluten-free flour blend.  This is a great, all-purpose flour/starch blend for making tasty and nutritious baked goods….that look AND taste good.  This blend seems to do the trick in many of my converted recipes. When looking for a wheat-free substitute for wheat flour, you will need to consider a blend.  This is because no other single flour or wheat-free starch behaves the same way as wheat flour...

Sweet Potato and Chicken Patties

Sweet Potato and Chicken Patties

Are you tired of purchasing meatless veggie and grain patties only to heat them up and have them taste like cardboard?  This Sweet Potato Chicken Patty recipe has been adapted from a chicken finger recipe my friend gave me.  She was making these for her toddler, who loves them.

Gluten-Free Kale Pancakes

Gluten-Free Kale Pancakes

Who can resist kale pancakes??  *There is an option below to make these dairy free as well!* I was doubtful these green kale pancakes were going to pass my pancake taste test.  This is mostly because I usually make either buttermilk or sourdough pancakes…when I make them.  These are quick to make and simply yummy!  Cook them on lower heat to retain the pretty green color.  Move over green eggs and ham!  Make room for the king of greens–KALE! I am on a mission to...

Gluten-Free Cornbread That Tastes Like the Real Thing

Gluten-Free Cornbread That Tastes Like the Real Thing

This cornbread recipe is from Pamela’s Products website, although I tweaked it a bit by adding vinegar to the milk prior to adding the milk to the dry ingredients.  This is a another way to obtain a buttermilk-type taste that I prefer in my cornbread.  I also added an extra tablespoon of butter to the batter and a tablespoon of butter to the pan to melt in the oven just prior to baking. Gluten-Free Cornbread – Does it taste just as good? Yes!  This bread has a...

I hired Cathy to redesign my office space to enhance the functionality and create a space that I want to work in. Change in any form is never easy, but Cathy listens to your needs and makes recommendations in a gentle and supportive manner. Her focus is to understand how you need your space to function, so that the outcome is both aesthetically pleasing and feels natural based on how you personally process information. Thank you Cathy!

When we were first referred to Mrs. Cathy Dick at One Degree Forward, my first question was, “Is she a doctor?”  If the answer had been yes I think I would have refused.  Instead the answer was like a breath of fresh air.
