Kakigori, Japanese shaved ice topped with strawberries, strawberry syrup and condensed milk- the perfect treat for a hot day in California. br>
As always, I love posting my menus with the others over at Org Junkie. And this week Asparagus Thin is hosting the gluten free menu swap. This week the theme ingredient is one of the best, low cost protein sources around- eggs!
Eggs Benedict with homemade GF english Muffins
Green Chili Enchiladas
Vegetarian Takoyaki (technically tofu-pup yaki, but you’ll see)
with vegetarian okonomiyaki sauce and mayo garnished with ao nori
This week I posted up a storm, with a
Retro macaroni Summer Salad Recipe 
Reviews of GF Instant Meals by Glutino etc 
I adopted Naomi and reviewed her GF sweet potato pita recipe 
This weekend DH and I celebrated our sixth year wedding anniversary with a trip to Disneyland. In a few days I’ll do a write up of my experience  with “the happiest place to be Gluten Free on Earth.”
Soon I’ll also be posting a review of the Triumph Dining Guide and a recipe for a sugar-free agave nectar coconut lemon bars.
For this week’s sauce or dressing of the week, I’d like to revisit an old favorite- my DH’s awesome roasted artichoke recipe with a killer fresh herb dipping sauce. It’s that time to start turning on the summer grill, methinks. Enjoy!
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup rice wine, white wine, or apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup dry white wine (Chardonney)- or more if you like
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 -1 onion (chopped)
3/4 cup water
8 artichokes, quartered and choke removed, soaked in a large bowl of
salt & pepper
Place Olive oil, vinegar, wine, garlic, onion, and water in a large
For a faster recipe, steam artichokes until slightly underdone. Then baste with a little olive oil and grill.
Accompanying Dipping Sauce:
Throw in food processor and blend until you get a lovely creamy dip.
*note: recipe may be halved if you like: 4 artichokes work well
