Cashew Cream Alfredo {Dairy-Free}
As Jake's gluten-free, dairy-free experiment continues, I am having to do some experimenting of my own. Earlier this week I decided that I wanted a creamy alfredo penne with my roasted salmon. As it was, I told the minis it was gluten-free and dairy-free; i...

Fresh Khalal Dates
Some people when faced with a new-to-them fruit or vegetable will run the other direction. The Manns? Nope. We scoop it right up and wonder how we're going to eat it. I'm on the email list for a website - Local Harvest - that assists in my desire for culina...

Lamb Tikka Masala {Dairy-Free}
Chicken Tikka Masala is a family favorite. I know, I know, we have a lot family favorites. But lamb, on the other hand, has really only been a favorite with the talls in the family. I'm not sure I can still call us that, given that our 13-year-old sprouted ...

Rhubarb Tart {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free}
Rhubarb tart is pretty much my family's favorite dessert of all time. I don't know if it's because rhubarb season is so fleeting that this tart is something they dream about for the rest of the rhubarb-less year - or if it just really is everyone's favorite...

Provençal Vegetable Tian
Normally, I turn these ingredients - eggplant, zucchini, bell peppers, tomaotes - into ratatouille which, my version at least, is very fast and very loose. Here's one I did with the kids at school: click here . It's a veritable celebration of a garden's bou...

We love cheese. It's not just a summer fling. It's a persistent, passionate affair. So, when I saw the Market Hall was on the Rockridge Food Tour , we were more than a little excited. My Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf, who adores cheese almost as much as I do, sq...

I have been going to this office for years, but what prompted me to write a review was that I just took my two kids to see Dr. Sethi. I'm not sure why I've been avoiding taking them to an eye doctor; they see their regular pediatrician annually. But we finally went and it turns out that one of my kids needs glasses, the other one doesn't. What I liked about this experience: they did a COMPLETE eye screening on the boys, including visual acuity, pupil function, extraocular muscle motility, visual fields, intraocular pressure and ophthalmoscopy through a dilated pupil. Both the doctor and assistants were patient with the boys' many questions and thorough in their answers. I appreciate any business that doesn't rush me out and speaks to my kids directly, not always through the parent. In the end - with my child who needs glasses - they were thorough with their sizing, cognizant of my budget, and delivered everything in a timely manner. I highly recommend Dr. Sethi's office and was just reminded - through their email system - that it's my turn for my annual eye exam.
