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...

Creamy Cole Slaw

Are you looking for a slightly sweet cole slaw that’s a great side to have with BBQ pork?  Then this is it!  I’ve made this cole slaw for many years and I always get complements.  I think it’s because I add in colorful veggies, so it’s pretty and it has just the right amount of sugar.

You helped me last year, around this time, with my son, Patrick – who is thriving by the way!!!  I hope your ears have been burning because I have been singing your praises and forwarding your website like crazy.  I so appreciate you and the work you do, how you support families in supporting their children’s unique learning styles.  I have got to get more of your cards!  As a massage therapist, I listen to a lot of clients tell me their frustrations… makes for easy referrals!

Mostly I’m thankful to Cathy Dick, for helping me a lot with previous decision making and daily planning. She has helped me put into practice a mind-set to be something that I wish to accomplish by the end of each day to the end of the year– focus on that, and make sure I do things in terms of preparing myself mentally and physically before I start.  She has a lot of great resources that she shares freely too.  You can trust her to do what she says she’ll do.

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!
