I know so many people are itching to get back out there, to get back to pre COVID-19 “normal.” But the truth is we are far from that possibility. At some point we will all, personally, be touched by this virus.
Today, July 2, 2020 there have been 516,000 deaths reported worldwide from COVID-19.
FWIW I think in the end we will find that this is a significant underrepresentation of the numbers as it now appears that this virus was circulating for months before we caught wind of it. I bet anything that thousands of people in the US, or even tens of thousands who were thought to have died from pneumonia or stroke actually died of COVID-19 related pneumonia or stroke.
But let’s stick with reported numbers for now. In the US alone today total confirmed cases in the country have reached more than 2.7 million, with more than 130,000 deaths.

You want to give it a try. But where to start? The first thing, before diving in, is to understand the difference between celiac disease, gluten...Read More
My girlfriend Laura made this pie a while back and posted a link to the recipe on her FB page. She raved about it so I decided to give it a shot. I was surprised to see that not only is it dairy-free but also very simple to make; just my gig as I don’t particularly like to bake. Not to mention that my four-year-old...Read More
This gluten free bread mix was recommended to me a few years ago. It turns out that this mix is based on a traditional Brazilian cheese bread called Pão de queijo. Similar breads are also found in Bolivia, Paragua, Argentina and Colombia. They can be made from scratch or more commonly from a mix. The main ingredient is usually Cassava or Tapioca flour, and in...Read More
I’ve been buying Cook’s Illustrated at our local health food store for years. Not until about a year ago did I realize that it is the magazine version of a PBS series called America’s Test Kitchen. We don’t get cable (gasp!) so to find a good cooking show on network TV is a crazy jackpot for me. The fabulous thing about this magazine (and show)...Read More
