I’ve based the recipe on the original from the Gourmet Vegan site which has loads of fabulous recipes to tantalize those taste buds and this tarte tatin (I keep saying it in a sing song voice, like ta dah!..

One of my favourite things for dishes is red onion and balsamic vinegar mix, it’s just packed with flavour and can be used as a side, for burgers, for pies, for tarte tatin… did you read that in a sing songy voice now??

If you've been hanging with me for awhile here on Gluten-Free Goddess, you already know how much we dig quinoa. It's one of our favorite gluten-free grains. I've grown to love- even crave- quinoa's distinct smoky-nutty flavor. Acorn Squash Stuffed with Mushrooms and Rice. Barley and Vegetable Skillet Salad.

It’s absolutely, positively, delicious. Let me begin by warning you that this dish contains tofu. I just laughed when I typed “tofu.” It ain’t exactly…my thang. But guess what?

Yes, a high schooler. Those of you who picture her as she appeared in her first photo on this blog can perhaps appreciate how strange it feels to look at her and see both that nine-year-old girl and the beautiful, smart young woman that she’s becoming.
