Creating from memory...

I often hunger for nostalgic foods like those I enjoyed as a kid. Unfortunately, I never inherited many documented recipes, like those hand-written on little cards or recorded on scraps of yellowed paper or notebooks. But then I’m unsure if my grandmothers baked or cooked from written-down recipes.

But the one thing I remember vividly is that my grandmothers and great-grandma were all excellent cooks. It seems they were always very creative in knowing what ingredients would complement each other so that everything came out perfectly, tasting just right in the final dish. To me, they seemed to come by the process organically. Their methods were always a scoop of this, a pinch of that, or this much of whatever was going into the bowl or pot.

Most of the family recipes that were passed to me from my grandmothers were recited or were gained somewhat through osmosis, I guess, as I watched them prepare food for our family in their kitchens.

It wasn’t until recent years that I was gifted several boxes and notebooks filled with newspaper and magazine clippings of recipes kept by my grandmothers.

This particular recipe was marked with a star that I’m assuming was a favorite.

It’s a combination of flavors imprinted in my memories of family get-togethers and summertime meals enjoyed by the lake.

I hope you’ll enjoy it while making memories of your own.

We didn’t eat fancy when I was growing up. And it was a rare treat when we ate things like fresh pineapple. This particular recipe variation on traditional coleslaw is a bit of a stretch on the sweet Apple Pineapple Slaw I remember eating as a kid. That one, I think, included little white marshmallows and relied on a salad dressing to bind it together.

Nevertheless, the apples and fresh pineapple have remained in this recipe, and I’ve updated the taste with a honey mustard sauce and some chopped green onions to add a little extra crunch.

Huevos Rancheros (a.k.a. Ranch Eggs) Lac du Nibiinaabe Style

The marriage of eggs with Mexican flavors is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Of all the ways to prepare eggs, poached eggs are, by far, my favorite. For me, they take a good meal to the next level. Add fried potatoes with peppers to poached eggs, and you can’t get a better yum factor!

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
