Joan, I wonder, is there some specific health reason you're looking for gluten-free recipes?

I meant to comment on my great love for dark, rich coffee with half-and-half and honey. I usually have two cups with my toast and my A.M. Rx. Another couple of cups when I complete my daily chores and sit down, usually in a horizontal position.

Does anyone have recipes for gluten-free dishes that taste good and feel good to the tongue? I made my family-favorite tuna casserole last week and used gluten free noodles. It tasted so bad we emptied our plates and the rest of it into the garbage.  

I don't like the taste of gluten-free pasta. The gravy looks and tastes bland. I finally figured out how to make a lump-free gravy, 

Lump-free gluten-free gravy

take the hot liquid off the heat, make a slurry with gluten-free flour, stir it in slowly with a wire whisk, and return the liquid to the heat for a good long cook, stirring often, reducing the liquid by half. 

None of us like my sugar-free menus either!


The greenhouse produces far more fresh vegetables than we can eat. Guess what - we are becoming a cook-free, gluten-free, sugar-free family.

Just commenting here to keep the group "active". Had French toast with strawberries for breakfast. Coffee, too.

Watching a couple of rabbits cavort while the dog is inside. My pair of bluebirds are checking out the same box they had 3 babies in already. I didn't know they had two "litters" a year.

Look a beautiful day. I'm headed out for a walk. Have a good one!

Howdy doody coffee lovers (and others). I'm not sure why, but I've been getting headaches while sleeping recently. They're in the back of my head by the upper neck. They've always been caffeine--deprived related (I get them if I don't drink coffee).

However, the headaches are occurring despite drinking my usual evening cup. I'm wondering why.

Hi Randall. Same for me, I love coffee but seldom drink more than the two cups at breakfast. If my brains don't clear up from the coffee, I take some very dark chocolate or do just simple things....

Good morning! I heated up my day old coffee for breakfast and then forgot to drink it. Either coffee doesn't appeal to me anymore, or I'm getting senile--maybe both. Although I like coffee, I don't drink very much--2 cups a day max, often just one.

This group is getting mighty lonely.

The first full day of spring looks promising: the sun is popping up, robins are jousting for the mating potential, farmers are prepping their machinery. I had an egg sandwich, an orange, and coffee for breakfast and am ready to tackle the day. Lots to do, but I won't bore you with details.  Have a good one!

A good morning for hot oatmeal (with blueberries) and, of course, coffee. It's a blustery rainy morning. However, the predicted tornadic storms petered out which is good news. The sun is supposed to come out this PM.
Enjoy your day and the rest of the week.

That "different" breakfast sounds good Randy.
