About Me

My dog, Jaques, died recently. He was 13 and my constant companion. I’m dedicating this blog to him. He was only a few months old when this photo was taken. It captures his sensitive spirit, which I miss every day.

I started this blog a few years ago when my children began leaving home. I thought they might, from time to time, want to make food I cooked for them while they were growing up. My nest is empty now (my youngest child is in college), and I no longer need to cook for a trio of allergic children.  I still cook without gluten, but I eat dairy now and then, very little sugar, and no pears, ever.

This website contains is a messy collection of recipes I like to make. All of the recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free, and they require little or no sugar.
