Gluten free, it's not a bad thing



Falafel in a box

I have not yet ventured into homemade falafels, instead I have found a ready made mix that does the trick.  The easy to follow instructions that call for the addition of water and a simple oven or deep-fry option (I shallow fry with rice bran oil) really have made me lazy to try this all from scratch.

I made beef koftas , grilled some halloumi, tomato and egg plant and served this with natural yogurt and babaganoush for a recent get together with friends. Easy!

93 bottles of cider…

Now that the weather is warming up it’s time to get back into the cider tasting.  I’ve avoided the berry type ciders for a while, worried that they might be too sickly sweet.  This apple, blackcurrant, cranberry cider, however, was pleasantly surprising; sweet but not sickly, sharp but not tart. I’m going to add it to my ‘yes’ list.
