I have been making pictures from my dinners for the past 5 months- only when I made something that looked very good. I never got the chance to post them when I made them, so I decided to make one post with them (just because I hate to make them for nothing).
So Enjoy!

1. Roasted turkey breast with onion and mustard made into sauce with peas. Cooked potato halves with fresh chopped parsley and olive oil and pickled cabbage salad.

2. Crepes with chocolate pudding, fresh fruit and ice cream.

3. Roasted beef chunks with gravy, mashed potatoes with fresh chopped parsley and plain cooked beets.

4.Sauteed chicken breast with frozen spinach, halved Brussels sprouts, and homemade red pepper relish. Cooked potato halves with fresh parsley and olive oil. Fresh shredded carrots mixed with sugar.

These look incredible, Simona. I never think to take photos of my creations for some reason. I should get into that.

Thanks for showing us all that gorgeous and delicious meals from scratch can be done gluten free. Darn it - I'm hungry and it's only 10 am!

Crepes I have been making from scratch. I will make some today and measure ingredients. I know how the dough should look just by mixing it.

The pickled cabbage I made last fall. I just cut by hands on tiny strips 1 big cabbage, or 2 smaller, 4 red Bell peppers, 6 big onions, 6-7 green tomatoes like for hamburgers, and 5 carrots (shredded like mozzarella cheese). Mix everything together and pure hot pickle juice in it through a small strainer. Do this in evening, let it cool down and put into fridge over night. In the morning put cabbage mixture with pickle juice in glass jars, cover tide and sterilize 30 minutes (put small towel on bottom of wider pot, place jars in pot, pure cold water into pot and wait until boil to count 30 minutes, lower the heat on medium heat and cook).
I'm using special pre-packaged mixture of spices from my country for pickles and every type of vegetable mixtures.
Pickle juice: 5 1/2 cup of water, 2 cups of sugar, 2 cups of white vinegar and spices (4Tbp.salt, 1 Tbsp. whole mustard seds, 1 Tbsp. ground black pepper, 1/2 Tbsp. ground all spice, 1/4 Tbsp. ground coriander and 1/4 Tbsp.bay leaf - amount is based on my visual inspection of pre-packaged bag)
You can make mixture like this: 1 big green cabbage, 8 Italian peppers, 6 big onions, and 15 cucumbers with skin.
2. 2 big green cabbages, 8 big onions, 10 Italian peppers, 8 cucumbers with skin and 1 bag of carrot shredded like mozzarella cheese.
3. 1 red and 1 green cabbage, 8 big onions, 8 Italian peppers, 10 cucumbers with skin, 1 bag of carrot shredded on the smaller side of shredder, but it looks like the side where you cut mozzarella cheese.
4. Cut 1/2 of red cabbage, 3 big onions, 6 Jalapeno peppers or other type- more hot, 2-3 Italian peppers (optional) and mix it together. Cut 2 cauliflowers on smaller florets (like broccoli). Place some of cabbage mixture on bottom of a bigger glass jar, then put one round of cauliflowers florets and cover with cabbage mixture. Continue until you will fill up all jar, pure hot pickle juice over it and sterilize. This is good with any sausage on grill, or with ribs.
My mom knows the recipe for fresh pickled cabbage that will last in the fridge for 7 days and is very similar to #2. I will ask her and post it later in week.

My food is simple and fast to make, not like yours - special culinary creations. As I sad once already, sometimes I don't even know what something that you cook looks like or what are you actually doing with it. Your dinners sound like a some well known chef in 5 star hotel made it for president.

Pictures would be nice, but just reading about your food is giving me a will to do a better job in my kitchen.

P.S.:I had a such a hard time today to make the pictures smaller for this forum. :blink: I will post few tomorow.

Ooo, I must be passionate about my food, otherwise my husband wouldn't stay on gluten-free diet. But I was always handy in kitchen, even before gluten-free diet. Now I just need to adapt little be and the results are great.

Sometimes I wish that I would have house full of hungry people because if I have a "good" day, I'm able to cook 3 dinners and 2 snack. Then we are stuck eating it for 3 days.

Oh, but your dishes look wonderful and I bet they taste even better. I love it when others' passions are evident like this. If everyone let me, I could (and I am not kidding) discuss food for hours and hours and hours, well into the night. My husband's and my conversations always turn into food, even if we start out by talking about business or whatever. :)

You are a sweetheart. I dearly love ingredients and really respect them. I love to try unique things that others don't try. My cooking is adventurous and creative (usually except for now when I'm housesitting and don't have my stuff here!) and I am thankful I can buy such excellent ingredients from specialty stores and other countries on our travels. One of my favourite new things is black garlic. Oh, and Umami #5 paste. Love them.

I would enjoy seeing more of your pictures. They make me very hungry, that is for certain. And I still think that your challah bread is one of the best I've made! If only the weather would cool down enough for me to make more. I can taste it just thinking about it. You are a very good cook/baker, Simona! :)

When I saw the title of your thread I thought you were offering to SEND samples of your food to us. :lol: If you ever decide to make that offer, I'm afraid you'll NEVER get out of the kitchen. They'll HAVE to find someone else to clean!

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!
