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!
