Meatballs with Dill/Mint Sauce Recipe

When I think of dill and mint together I think of Greece. My favourite tzatziki always has a touch of mint. One day I was asked to make some “Danish Meatballs” with a creamy dill sauce. I happened to have an abundance of mint, it grows like a weed for me. So I chopped some up and had a hit on my hands.

Milky Way Bars Recipe - Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Dairy Free

“Quick Soda Bread” GFDF Recipe

A variation on Jacques Pepin’s Normally traditional Irish Soda Bread is made with a mixture of white and whole wheat flour along with baking soda and buttermilk.  When I was experimenting with Gluten free/dairy free recipes I ran across this and thought it made a reasonable facsimile that was easier to recreate as a GFDF recipe than the traditional one. Makes 1 Round Loaf 3 cups/375g AP Gluten Free flour mix 1 1/2 teaspoons guar gum or xantham, agar agar,  (you can try using 1 well beaten Large egg)* 1 1/2 teaspoons/7 ml salt 1 tablespoon/15ml/11.24g baking powder 1 tablespoon/15ml/12.86g baking soda 1 1/2 cups/375 ml Almond or Coconut milk 1 ½ tablespoons/22ml white vinegar 1/2 teaspoon/2 ml canola oil or any neutral oil of your choice Preheat the oven to 425 F/190 C/Gas Mark 5 Reserve 1 teaspoon of the flour, and combine the remaining flour with the salt and baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl.

Roast Pheasant with Cabbage and Turkey Bacon Recipe

Roast Pheasant Most game is delicious on its own.  Nothing is added by smothering or drowning it in sauces or strong flavours.  Classics are classic for a reason.  Bacon, juniper berries, onion, leeks, cabbage and even sauerkraut seem to work best with most game. Roast Pheasant with Cabbage and Turkey Bacon Pheasant is still hunted with good results.  If you are not likely to head into the woods, process and “hang” one yourself, and most are not, find yourself a reputable butcher that keeps a variety of game in stock.  Free range birds are an excellent choice and much less work.  Be prepared game birds in the USA unlike in most countries is a bit expensive and therefore a treat, but we all deserve treats.  Pheasants have a surprising amount of meat.  A 4-5 pound/1.8-2.2kg bird will easily serve 4-6 people. Serves 4-6 1 onion cut into quarters 1 stalk celery cut into quarters 2 carrots sliced in half vertically and horizontally 1 4-5 pound/1.8-2.2kg pheasant 1 ta

Dairy Free Banana Pudding Recipe

We have been working on a dairy free pudding, in this case a banana pudding using coconut milk.   The following recipe was been reworked a couple of times and the results are pretty good.  In fact, you could eliminate the sugar/sweetener all together when using the roasted bananas.  It all depends on how sweet you like your pudding. If you are so inclined, you could layer the pudding with cookies (as many do), but we prefer them not in our pudding.  It is a personal choice. Also you could strain the bananas before adding to your warm mixture if you do not want lumps.   Again, we wanted the texture of the bananas so we opted not to go this route. 1/4 cup sugar or other sweetener such as honey or gava 3 eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 cups full fat coconut milk 1/3 cup flour 1/2 Tablespoon vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract) 4 bananas, roasted Coconut whipped cream (optional - our recipe to be posted later) When your bananas are roasted, let cool for 5-10 minutes then re
