    The gluten-free puff pastry is from Tartelette (http://www.mytartelette.com/) and it is simply amazing! I was going to use it to make a quiche, but ended up making a strawberry tart instead. The crust was wonderful, it tasted remarkably like wheat but my family and I agreed it was the best crust we’ve ever tasted; we haven’t even had a wheat crust that good. I write more about my experience with making the puff pastry and working with it in my post. If you haven’t made Helen’s gf puff pastry, you really must! You will not be disappointed.

    I may have said this already (I know I’ve thought about it a couple times), but even if its a repeat I think its okay… :)

    I would LOVE to live near you so I could attend your classes. They sound like so much fun and I know I would learn a lot. When I’m done with grad school I’ll have to look for jobs in Texas :)

    I hope this counts. Mine is an combination of two recipes written by others…and the result is delicious.
    We found ramps at our farmers market this weekend and I picked up a couple bunches having no idea what to do with this wild grown leek. They are pretty pungent and garlic-y. Deep in flavor, and perfect for these savory biscuits.

    I linked up an older recipe this week. It’s one from back in my gluten-eating days. Making it gluten free meant no condensed soups and you can also make it with coconut milk to make it dairy free, which is what I did. It’s a terrific comfort food dish, but still healthy. Since it’s still cold here, I’m thinking it will be just right for us and some others. :-)

    All the best on th finals and everything else you always have going on, my dear! Thanks so much for this terrific weekly roundup and your blog.

    I agree with you that everyone’s definition of “healthy” is a little different, and that should be a-ok! It’s a wonderful thing when you finally figure out what works for your body.

    This week I am sharing a simple sweet treat, high in protein and low in carbs, it’s a soft-serve like strawberry cheesecake “ice cream.” hits the spot for me!

    Hi Amy, I left my broccoli crepes here, this morning and just now, I came back to add something from My Sweet and Savory and I could not find it. If it is duplicated, please delete one. I apologize if I messed anything up.

    Just another note. I have a long list from eating Well to make, thanks to you. What a wonderful giveaway that was.

    @Chaya, I haven’t touched any of the submissions. I’m not sure what happened. Maybe Mr. Linky was acting up. :) Add as many different entries as you choose.

    P.S. Thanks for highlighting my German Chocolate Cake. My family really enjoys that recipe.

    thanks so much for the tips on eating out!! I really appreciate that because you are right- we don’t always feel like cooking and still responsible for what we put in our bodies. :) Hope everybody likes the gluten free, vegan an soy free biscuits. Wish I lived in the Dallas area-I totally go to your class! good luck on finals :)

    Hi Amy,
    I really appreciate your words re: healthy recipes, and how that phrase does not mean the same thing to everyone. I’ve linked to a black quinoa salad I made for a Mother’s Day potluck…my non gluten-free friends really liked it, so enjoy!

    I’m calling my submission “Quinanna Cookies”

    I adapted the recipe from the Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flakes box recipe for Crispy Quinoa Cookies. I substituted two ripe bananas for 1/2 cup honey and 1/4 cup of brown rice syrup for 1/3 cup brown sugar. I substituted 1/4 cup safflower oil for 1/2 cup butter. I also substituted almond butter for peanut butter and omitted the optional nuts. These guilt-free cookies had a sweet and salty goodness without a lot of sugar or fat.

    Hi Amy, Love your site and how creative you are with managing your program and still creating amazing food! Thank you for sharing your great space with us. My first visit article is about two gluten free items that are both full of great lactobacteria! Herbed Sheep’s Milk Yogurt Cheese and Crazy Mixed up Sauerkraut! Enjoy! Will grab your feed and see you on the tweeter! Take care! Alex

    What a fantastic blog! While I do not practice gluten free, I am a diabetic and stay away from all “white” stuff.
    I hope I managed to do the link correctly, if I didn’t please
    help. I am far better in the kitchen than at the computer!

    My submission this week is gluten-free, and has a little bit of optional maple syrup in the dressing.

    Loving all the recipes!

    Amy Reply:

    @Lindsay at Kitchen Operas, What kind of maple syrup do you use? Grade A or B?

    Lindsay at Kitchen Operas Reply:

    @Amy, To be honest, I’m not sure!

    My dear friend’s family has a sugar bush, and she is kind enough to bring me back a gallon each year from Quebec.

    There’s no indication of grade on the cans… but it is DIVINE and I’m supporting not only a small business, but a somewhat local one too.

    These stuffed peppers are delicious and so quick and easy, if

    you don’t have a taste for lamb, ground turkey works as well.

    My approach to cooking is not gluten free but as having type

    2 diabetes I stay away from sugar and other white ingredients.

    Something that you’ve done here is created a community for all of us working to eat *healthier*, and that’s going to mean something different for each of us based not only on our dietary restrictions, but where we are on our individual journeys.

    For example, I’ve started drinking (and adoring) green smoothies in the morning, and I’m super happy for all the green veggies, superfoods, and staying power, without the sugar of just fruits… but my Dad is starting on fruit smoothies as a change from bacon and eggs every day. It wouldn’t help if I made him a kale smoothie tomorrow morning, but starting to add a leaf to his banana smoothie will get him transitioning. And it’s his way of getting healthiER.

    My rant. Done.

    @Lindsay at Kitchen Operas, You are so welcome. :) And, just so you know – I’ve been working on getting Joe (my husband) to drink green smoothies for months. I’ve had to do exactly what you did and ease him into it. He will actually drink one that is green in color now. His smoothies are heavier on the fruit than I usually make for myself but, hey, he’s drinking more fruits and veggies than he usually eats in a day.

    Yes, it’s just like you said – healthIER is the goal, not an unachievable perfectly healthy.

    Hugs, my dear.
