gluten-free plum cake


When we first moved into this house, Lucy was only 3. She turned 4 here a few months later, the party a spill of children in their swim suits and their hair floating out behind them as they ran, laughing.

gluten-free blueberry pie


This was the summer of blueberry pie around here. We’re big on peaches and blackberries, plums and strawberries too.

gluten-free peach and blackberry crisp


Around here, there’s only one refrain in the morning: “Can I have a peach, please?” The peaches are lovely and round, ripe and redolent.

we’re making waffles here


These gluten-free blueberry waffles are a near constant in our house this summer. So easy for a big summer morning breakfast.  Before I turned 50 last week, I had survived the normal amount of heartbreaks and disappointments, the way every human does.

they say it’s your birthday


Certain moments of my life, I couldn’t imagine ever turning 50. It seemed impossibly far away — and very much old — when I was a child and in my 20s.

gluten-free peach bundt cake


Almost 20 years ago now, I sat in a darkened comedy club, watching my friend Sharon do a standup routine.

turmeric-ginger tea


The longer I live on this sweet-sleepy full-of-opinions and people-who-want-to-be-hippies wacko rural island in the middle of Puget Sound, the more interested I am in what is happening here.

in praise of shortening


Do you remember loving cowboy cookies when you were a kid? But now that you have to be gluten-free and dairy-free, you think you will never eat them again?

gluten-free chocolate dream cake


I have to admit this: I’m a plain cake girl. While I feel a sort of awe for many-tiered cakes with smooth frosting swooped up toward the edges, I feel a bit tired when I look at them too.

welcome to EatLove


For the past 11 years, and 10 of them with Dan, I have been posting recipes on this site. Together, we’ve created hundreds and hundreds of meals we love.

love is love is love is love


  It’s hard to even know what to say this week. The shooting in Orlando has left us all speechless. (Except for the brilliant Lin-Manuel Miranda, whose acceptance speech in the form of a sonnet he wrote that day is about the only response that has resonated with me all week. He announced this morning that there are now t-shirts with part of that speech available for sale, with profits going to Equality Cares in Florida, to help the families of victims.) I’m going to restrain myself saying anything more about this, for the moment.

Asian pear cider-poached cherries


We live in a place I affectionally call Wacko Island. (It’s Vashon, actually.) This place in the middle of Puget Sound, only a 15-minute ferry ride away from Seattle, feels so far away to most mainlanders.

grilled salmon and black bean taco salad


This is a sponsored post for Mission gluten-free flour tortillas. We eagerly said yes to this sponsorship, for which we have been paid.

peaches and greens smoothie


  This post is sponsored by Align, the gluten-free probiotic we wrote about recently. We were paid for our work but the opinions and words are our own.  Summer’s coming.

gluten-free honey buckwheat spice cake


This gluten-free honey buckwheat cake is also free of dairy and refined sugar. Right after a rainy baseball game, we all returned home with mud on our shoes and grins on our faces.

bean bake casserole


Bean bake casserole for dinner? We’re excited here.  Quite a few things have changed around here in the last decade.

Meet Our Sponsors: Freshly


Freshly, a gluten-free fresh meal delivery service, is our latest sponsor. The opinions and words used here are our own.  As we all seem to grow busier, cooking every meal from scratch, made with whole foods, seems more and more difficult.

writing seminars on Vashon


  As soon as I could grasp that it was people who wrote the books I loved — real people! not magicians!

gluten-free rhubarb pie


Gluten-free rhubarb pie can be yours, if you want it. And you don’t need strawberries. Yesterday afternoon, there was a warm breeze floating in from the west.

roasted garlic bean dip


I don’t write about him the way I used to: breathless, giggling, everything a discovery. The words tumbled out of me then, urgent, since I had to throw them down on the page, as fast as I could, still not believing my luck.
