The perfect slice of toasted Gluten-Free Pantry Favorite Sandwich bread, lightly buttered and topped with fried egg seasoned with dill, salt, and pepper. I layered it with avocado slices and then drizzled fresh yogurt herb dressing on it… Oh, so good. The cherry tomato halves were the perfect end note.

This week the Gluten-Free menu swap is hosted by Angela’s Kitchen [2] with a very seasonably appropriate theme ingredient of cranberries. I also always enjoy posting my menus with Org Junkie [3]. Don’t forget that Cheryl is temporarily housing the Gluten Free Menu Swap at her blog GF Goodness [4].

Baked Good of the Week: Cranberry cake [7]

I have been fighting a serious sweet tooth lately and so the last thing I needed this week was another cookie recipe. Sorry guys, but I just don’t deserve it. You see, I found these mini chocolate peanut butter cups at Trader Joe’s…. and, well, it’s an old story, but I am NOT ALLOWED cookies for a bit. So instead I thought I’d share a yogurt sauce/dressing that is lovely on fried eggs or tofu.

Fresh Herb Yogurt Sauce
Sauces & Condiments [8]  Dairy [9]  American [10]  
Ingredients
1 cup yogurt, cold
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp. GF honey mustard like Annie’s
sprinkle of sugar
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tsp dried dill (if no fresh is available, if it is use fresh)
1 tsp. dried parsley (if no fresh is available, if it is use fresh)

Handful of fresh basil leaves, julienned, to use as you serve the dish
Handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half and lightly salted

Directions
Whisk yogurt, olive oil and lemon juice together. Season and thoroughly combine.

When ready to use pour amount you will use over your cherry tomatoes and fresh basil. Combine. Then drizzle on salad, fried egg seasoned with dill, or fried tofu seasoned with dill.

Notes
Not earth-shattering by itself, but wonderful on a fried egg in a more waistline-friendly eggs benedict. Would also be nice in a potato salad… hmm…
