Artichoke dip has always been one of my favorite holiday appetizers. But until we recently reintroduced artichokes into our modified low FODMAP eating, it was strictly off the menu. But even though we are both now OK with artichokes, the amount of onions, garlic and lactose found in most artichoke dip recipes doesn’t work for us. That’s why I created my own gut-friendly take on classic artichoke dip….
Just when I started to feel like I was getting the hang of gluten-free baking, life had to throw me a curveball.
My boyfriend’s naturopath had him try a new treatment for his IBS, and follow it up with a month of Paleo eating.
Now, here’s the thing: He eats ice cream for dessert pretty much every night.
I know, I know, that’s usually not low FODMAP unless I’m buying So Delicious frozen desserts or a Paleo sorbet. But he loves ice cream, and it hasn’t really bothered him previously. The point here is, desserts are absolutely mandatory….
Although it looks like our hopes for an Orange October are dashed (I mean, it IS an odd year, so what were we expecting?) I wanted to share one of my favorite all-time cocktails, which we named the Giants Cocktail both because of its color and the fact that we made it for the first time during one of the SF Giants’ World Series showdowns….
We’re having a heatwave here in San Francisco. And our top floor apartment, like most of the older apartment buildings in the city, doesn’t have any air conditioning. Which is why last night, it was in the high 80s…in our apartment. Ugh. That meant there was only one good way to escape the heat: Hawaiian Stone Sour cocktails.
Like many people who become intolerant to gluten and wheat as an adult, I missed really good bread. Luckily, my longing for exceptional bread didn’t last long since I live in San Francisco and kept seeing Bread Srsly at my local grocery stores. Their perfect little sourdough loaves make exceptional toast for breakfast or sandwiches. I was hooked!
The only thing I couldn’t do with their bread was make bread pudding. The crumb texture of their regular sourdough loaves wasn’t quite right.
