Cooking Blues

Sometimes I wonder if cooking is overrated.  Specific ingredients.  Long hours in the kitchen.  Debates between chefs, brands, and what is considered to be healthy.  There's the sink full of dishes... 

Then again, in some shape or form, food is absolutely necessary to be able to go on living -- especially if you are one who keeps close watch as to what you put in your mixing bowl.  When done right, food is down right amazing. Therefore, cooking definitely has high rankings in life.  (No wonder we have so many great cookbooks here!). 

Got the cooking blues and are not sure what to make on this stretch of snow and rainy days?  Sometimes I find myself turning pages until I find something good or go back to a long forgotten favorite.

I highly recommend Gluten Free Italian.  It is sure to be a homey pleaser, and it is one of the top selling gluten free books we have.  Within this cookbook there are many meals that don't contain wheat and are low in sugar.  Try the Spinach and Potato Frittata, breadsticks, Focaccia bread, and the various fettuccine dishes. So far, everything I've made so far has been absolutely delicious.

If you have to eat, you might as well make the best of it right?
