To finish off our rough day yesterday, I thought I'd make something especially healthy ...
I was going to make peach crisp from a recipe, but I got a little carried away. This is what I ended up with: a peach-apple base with oatmeal cookie crust. Amazing! Served with mini egg fritatas (slices of deli ham in muffin cups filled with whisked egg, milk, salt, pepper and a dash of garlic powder, topped with swiss, baked for 20 mins at 350), this was an amazing comfort meal. I think the cobbler would likely be amazing with cranberries and apples for a Thanksgiving desert.

You may have heard that gluten free is a diet fad. I mean, if celebrities do it, the rest of us follow, right? You may have heard that gluten intolerance isn’t even a thing, celiac either for that matter...
It's gluten free, Trim Healthy Mama compliant (or can be), Paleo, and so much more.
Pizza. It happens. In our house it happens a lot. As in Every Single Friday Night. When it doesn't happen, life feels horribly, disastrously wrong. We used to go out for Friday Night pizza. But once my gluten issue and Fish's egg issue were discovered, it was home-baked or nothing at all....
Once upon a time I was trying to find a recipe I knew my grandmother had sent me in an email. I thought I'd saved it in a Pages doc somewhere, or maybe it was still in Gmail, or on an archive disk. Or maybe ...

Last week I committed myself (noooo, let me finish) to using Pepperplate for meal planning, shopping, recipes. And oh my word, how my life has changed.
I think this will be more meaningful if I show what my meal planning process used to be ...
I started the season with ten lovely tomato plants. A few heirloom, some beefsteak, others. All went well for quite a while. We made it through June, July (even with two weeks of neglect while I was at Hamline University), into August. But then the cool nights hit, and the wet days, and the icky constant dampness. Blight set in.
Last weekend I sacrificed nine of my ten beloved lovelies...

A (potentially) healthy lunch idea!
The scariest thing about these cookies is how fast they disappear! You'd never guess they were healthy.
