Black and White Breakfast Quinoa

Breakfast Quinoa

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
"Special Breakfast" has been a household tradition since the oldest Kitchen Diva in Training could reach the counter top. It usually consists of pancakes or some kind of eggy bacony thing on the weekends, but the Kitchen Divas in Training have started to use "Special Breakfast" as an opportunity to experiment in the kitchen. I've also noticed that it's become a successful delaying tactic for weekday school! Remember a few weeks back when I wrote about Shrimp Scampi w/ Black & White Quinoa? Well…

How to Make a Great Taco

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
Today, we're going to show you how to make a great taco. Taco Tuesday, a school lunch tradition for many of us who grew up in the 70's and 80's, has occurred with semi-regular frequency at our home, thanks to the imaginations of The Kitchen Divas in Training.  Each incarnation of Taco Tuesday is unique and based on what's in the fridge, what's leftover, and what flavors the girls would like to enjoy. Black beans are always served in some form, as are copious amounts of cilantro, lime, and New Mexico…
Parsleyed Potatoes and Fresh Asparagus

Parsleyed Potatoes

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
Bonjour! It is SO nice to be back writing again! My deepest and sincerest thanks to  all of you who have sent me notes of encouragement over the last 11 (yikes!) months. For those of you who are new readers, or who have wondered why I dropped off the face of the earth last summer, here's a little re-cap: Last year I embarked on the most rewarding and challenging adventure of my life- homeschooling my two beautiful daughters. After a year, we've all agreed it's been the best thing we've ever done…
black bean pasta, chipotle chicken, gluten free madeleine

Black Bean Pasta w/ Chipotle Lime Chicken

Black Bean Pasta w/ Chipotle Lime Chicken, may seem like a mouthful,  but when you try these flavors, I think you’ll agree that this is a fun and flavorful meal. A few weeks ago, fellow bloggers Lazaro from Lazaro Cooks, and Denise from Quickies on the Dinner Table, announced a fun contest (The Quickie Challenge) centered on noodles. Since I already have some fun noodle dishes posted, and a ton of cellophane noodles left over from this fall’s Japchae experience, I originally thought I’d try…

Stuffed Poblano Peppers w/ Goat Cheese & Shrimp

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
The weather here has been simply spectacular. Fall is one of the seasons I really appreciate in the midwest; particularly the month of October. The weather is crisp, the nights are clear, the morning air contains a hint of colder weather to come,while the late afternoon's golden sun dances through the red and orange trees.  It's something I've never experienced elsewhere. *sigh* Last Friday was so lovely, we ended up having a spontaneous picnic dinner outside- probably the last of this year. We…
okra popcorn

Gluten Free Popcorn Okra

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
Gluten free popcorn okra is a great crunchy summer snack, and a great way to use up all the okra you may get in a summer CSA bag. These cute little disks remind me of popcorn shrimp, and they're just as addictive. The first time I ever cooked okra was last summer when I received a bag in my CSA share from Farmer Jill. I knew they appeared in gumbo, but since I grew up out west where we don't eat food like okra, I wasn't sure what to do with them. Enter my friend Georgeann, who is a great [...]
purple potato salad

Purple Potato Salad

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
This purple potato salad satisfies my love of colorful food. I'm obsessed with colorful food. Why have a regular colored food item when you can have an exotically colored one? Think blood oranges, chocolate peppers, blue corn, green eggs and ham, purple potatoes....you get the idea... My favorite potatoes ever are these little purple guys- they are indigo on the inside and royal purple on the outside. My locally grown variety is called "Inca Blue". Potatoes are a New World food. They are native…
apple blackberry basil pie

Gluten Free Fruit Pies: Apple-Blackberry-Basil, and Peach-Raspberry-Ginger (gluten-free of course!)

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
Every 4th of July we host a big barbeque. This began 6 years ago when our city partnered with two neighboring cities to host fireworks practically in our backyard. Each year the party has grown in size and in food quality. The nice thing about having friends who are geeky foodies- not unlike myself- is that we now endeavor to outdo each other with astounding results. Some of what we enjoyed this year: Habañero Garlic Deviled Eggs, Quinoa and Mozzarella Stuffed Roasted Poblanos, Purple Potato Salad,…

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies- Carnivore Cookies- Aptly named by my dear husband, this fun cookie is sure to turn heads at your 4th of July Picnic. I was inspired in part by our family’s ‘special breakfast’ chocolate chip pancakes, and by Mo’s Milk Chocolate Bacon Bar from Vosges chocolate. If you’ve never tried their adventuresome chocolate combinations, splurge on one the next time you’re at the store. Snobby and expensive, yes. Startlingly amazing, yes. But, if you’re a dark chocolate…
GF Irish Soda Bread Final

Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread and Pan Seared Chipotle Corned Beef

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
Today is Bloomsday, a seemingly inconsequential day in the life of James Joyce’s Everyman- Leopold Bloom. Modeled on Homer’s Odyssey, the life of Bloom is juxtaposed against the heroic encounters of Ulysses on his return home from war. For those of us with a bit O’Irish heritage, it’s another excuse to enjoy corned-beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, and of course, Guinness. That is if you’re not gluten-free. It’s Irish coffee for this mama, and gluten-free soda bread. I feel as if I’ve…
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with Crisp Topping (gluten free)

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
A crisp? A pie? A crispie? “The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play..” So begins the first line of The Cat in the Hat. And, as I lay in bed this morning listening to yet another round of thunder and pouring rain, I knew that no yard work would be accomplished today. The weeds and the grass would be left to grow another six inches while I daydreamed of strawberries and rhubarb, and remembered that it was my grandfather’s favorite pie. I’ve been working on a strawberry rhubarb crisp…

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
I’m feeling my way through this whole gluten free baking world. To be honest, I’m much more comfortable just throwing a bunch of ingredients together, tasting, adding a bit of this, a pinch of that, and calling it delicious. The act of writing down what I cook and how has been great discipline. It’s also had me scrambling for scraps of paper as I hit on something worth posting. My children’s pictures on the refrigerator now have competition in the form of slips of paper with hastily scrawled…
creamy polenta

Creamy Polenta & Bok Choy

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
An unlikely yet delicious marriage, bok choy and polenta. The weather was still foul here late last week and out of necessity I reverted to hearty, warming, cool weather dishes. Of course spring veggies and the CSA pick-up wait for no one, so the challenge was pairing hearty winter food with vibrant spring produce. The result was a culture clash of new and beautiful flavor combinations. I’ll be making this again, but this time for sheer pleasure. Creamy Polenta serves 6 Ingredients 1/2 onion,…
carne adovada

Carne Adovada, Gluten-Free Tortillas and Gluten-Free Cornbread

It’s been unseasonably cold here in the midwest. Cold and rainy. In fact, I’ve worn my rainboots so much I feel like I’m in Seattle or London. Alas, there are no flannel wearing, coffee consuming grunge-types to greet me, nor are there clipped accents, cockney cabbies, or the smell of fish and chips wafting out of every corner pub. Not that I could consume said fish and chips.... I’d have to make my own.... So, what’s a girl to do when the sun should be shining on the glorious garden flowers,…

Traditional Risotto (gluten free)

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
Traditional Risotto is naturally gluten free, and when made with patience is a delicious experience for everyone at the table. This version includes a little flavor twist that will give your eaters a delicious surprise! Yesterday was simply lovely. It felt like Spring. Even though there was still a little snow in the shadiest parts of the garden, the girls spent the whole day playing outside and climbing fences. Yes, climbing fences. The son of a friend visiting from out of town showed them how,…

Begin Anywhere Going Gluten Free

by Jennifer Lee Robinson
A few days ago a close friend gave me this wise and prophetic advice- begin anywhere. This quote made famous by composer John Cage inspired me to officially start documenting my journey of self-discovery through gluten-free cooking. I was diagnosed with celiac (I choose not to view it as a disease) in 1998, shortly after I was married. Going gluten free back then was a challenge. Twelve years and 2 gluten-free daughters later I have learned to be fearless in my kitchen. I have learned and continue…
