GLUTEN-FREE CORN DOG MINIS

I have a guilty pleasure. Actually more than one but I’m only going to out myself with this: I have a thing for hot dogs. And I don’t even care if you scrunch up your nose and shout an audible ‘ewwwwww’ – it’s totally fine. I’ll just eat yours too. And for […]

CHILAQUILES CASSEROLE AND THE BIG POTLUCK

I will always hold a special place in my heart for The Big Potluck – it was the very first ‘conference’ I attended after launching Smith Bites; it was also the first time I’d traveled sans The Professor since we had married. I was nervous about actually meeting people who […]

GLUTEN-FREE FRESH RHUBARB PIE

CHILLED CUCUMBER AND DILL SOUP

I, for one, am counting the days until The Professor and I can sit outside on our porch, sip some wine and enjoy dinner al fresco; and if it’s not too much to ask, I’d also like to break out my flip-flops – heck, I might even get all crazy […]
