It has been about a week since we brought Baby Yum home from the hospital. I have to admit, I haven’t been playing in the kitchen much- the most ambitious things I’ve made were Mrs. Leepers corn pasta and Conte’s gluten- free cheese ravioli in a sauce with chard and sauteed onions. Exciting! Otherwise I’ve been fueling myself with Amy gluten-free frozen meals (reviews of my favorites coming soon) and other quickies like microwaved sweet potatoes. Our local gluten-free support group has been very supportive, though, with one friend doing a Mariposa gluten-free bakery run and another bringing recipes she’d prepared for me from my blog (thanks Julie!!!!).

Although I don’t have a recipe for you this week, here’s a news flash- Sunshine Burgers has come out with two new flavors! These gluten-free, soy-free, vegan burgers (dairy and egg free) now come in a classic falafel flavor or in a breakfast patty. Take that, you gluten wretches at Boca Burger and Gardenburger! I haven’t tried the breakfast patty yet but have had and enjoyed the falafel burger very much, both on a Kinnikinnick hamburger bun and in corn tortillas with tahini sauce and lettuce. Yum!

  1. Hi! Congrats on your baby!

    I’m a bit new to your blog (started following about 10 days ago), also a bit new to being gluten-free (diagnosed with celiac about 10 days ago :(), but not new to being vegetarian (13 years).

    My eyes brightened when you mentioned Mariposa in this post — you must live in the Bay Area! So do I! What is this local gluten-free support group you speak of? Is it a joinable thing or more of an ad hoc collection of friends you have met? I’ve been trying to find local resources and was shocked not to (thus far) find more of an active community in the Bay Area. I must be looking in the wrong places!

    Congrats again on your new addition. :o)
