I got Manda's email saying that this week's food was licorice as I was eating bunch of sauteed fennel. If I had realized, I would have waited! I didn't want to repeat it again this week, so I will do my best to make anise flavored cookies (fingers crossed!!). If not, there IS some fennel in the garam masala, although I do understand that's pushing it a bit.
I really love the flavor of licorice, and you can buy a wide range of GF licorices. Yum!
Never in my life did I think I’d say this, but here goes…for a millisecond, I wished I lived in Toronto. For someone like me who hates the cold, that’s beyond Why, you may ask? Because Ricki is giving away home baked goodies from her new cookbook, but only to locals. Those further out may have to
“settle” for Ritter sport bars.
Garam Masala chicken and Gingery Soup
Crunchy and Creamy Beans and greens (for the monthly Adopt a GF Blogger event)
quick and easy…
Turkey cutlets in tomato sauce with steamed broccoli
Quinoa with arugula winter pesto
I will definitely be making the Daring Baker challenge (but alas, not for me…making it vegan/grain/sugar free seems to be way too hard)
Anise cookies (maybe)
SO much goodness on the menu, as always!!
Oh Cheryl! Thank you for that GF licorice link, I was getting really depressed that I could not find some. I know the GF fruit twizzles or whatever they’re called are avaliable in most health food stores but I want pure licorice! The good stuff. The true stuff..
I love you.
Believe me, you don’t want to be here in winter! Now, summer is another story (80+F and sunny. . .). Thanks for the link, and good luck in the contest! And I still love the sound of that pesto!
Your arugula pesto looks yummy! I will have to try that. My husband, Tom, makes the pesto in our house and tosses it with quinoa, veggies, or rice noodles. Thanks! -Ali 🙂
I’m with you, let’s get a summer place near Toronto so we can visit Ricki and sample her yummies!
