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. This recipe is made with chicken.  The reason why I really like it is because I often want an alternative, quick meal and I don’t always want a mouth full of chicken.  In fact, I don’t...

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...

I absolutely LOVE these healthy muffins!  They are great for using up some veggies in the fridge.  These muffins are so forgiving and allows you to put almost anything into them…well, within reason of course. I have made these a few different ways with great success, so now you can clean out the fridge and enjoy the warmth of muffins that offer lots of nutritive value . My next venture is to use gluten-free flour.  I’ll update this post when I...

Creamy Mushroom Soup with Spinach

Creamy Mushroom Soup with Spinach

Creamy mushroom soup – flavorful and filling While growing up I never was a fan of mushrooms, but over time I learned to appreciate their earthiness.  When mixed with other vegetables and covered in sauce, it’s hard to taste the uniqueness mushroom brings to a dish.  But when you allow them to be the highlight of a dish, the flavor and nutritional benefits shine through. I’ve never made mushroom soup prior to making this recipe.  Since I rarely seem to...

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.

I feel fortunate enough to have participated in one of Cathy’s Teleclasses and purchased  her ADD Parental Strategies program.  I really needed my husband to understand more about ADD so we could help our son better.  The program dove into who we are as people and showed us the importance of communication between us in order to communicate more effectively with our son.  I’d recommend this program to everyone, whether they have ADD kids or not.  It’s a real eye opener!  Thanks.
