Lemon Sugar Cookies September 25, 2016

dsc05439I crave lemon a lot. Not sure what that means. Maybe it just means that I like lemon. My son, who can’t have eggs, isn’t really a fan of lemon or sugar cookies (he likes chocolate chocolate chip cookies) so I didn’t bother with an egg substitute.





2 3/4 c. gluten free flour blend (I use Pamela’s blend)

1/8 tsp. sea salt

1 egg

1 c. soy-free Earth Balance

1 1/4 c. granulated sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

juice and zest of one lemon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients in stand mixer until combined. Using small scoop, scoop onto insulated baking sheets, about 2″ apart, then flatten with palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass (greased). Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and cool completely. Not sure how long they last before going stale. 24 hours is as long as they last in this house because I eat them all.


Rosemary Chicken & Rice (one-dish meal) September 18, 2016

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kathy Brown @ 12:23 pm

2 boneless chicken breasts

2 carrots, finely sliced into coins

5 or 6 chives

1 4-5″ sprig of fresh rosemary

1 1/2 c. jasmine or basmati rice

2 Tbs. white wine

3 c. chicken broth (homemade preferred)

1-2 Tbs. olive oil

1 Tbs. cornstarch

salt & pepper to taste

Cut chicken breasts into bite sized pieces. Heat olive oil over medium in large skillet and saute chicken until browned on all sides. While chicken is sauteing, snip chives and rosemary so that you get little pieces and sprinkle all over the chicken, with salt & pepper. Add carrot pieces and stir for a few minutes. Add rice and stir for a couple of minutes (this way the rice soaks up all the chicken juices. Mix the cornstarch into the chicken broth. Add chicken broth & wine to pan. Stir to combine all. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes, until all chicken broth is absorbed by the rice.

I think this would have also been good with a little lemon juice added to it but I didn’t have any lemons… next time… Since I was just experimenting with what I had on hand, I didn’t take a picture, but my son raved about it, so I decided to post here to try again.
