St Patricks Day 2010

We had a great day all green.  The kids loved the simple things i did and they had fun at their schools too. I took GF sugar cookies to Nicholas and he loved them.  We delivered some to our two neighbors who are GF too. The pics say alot.
Green yogurt, green applesauce, and apple juice and green milk!

The Eggplant was from our new bountiful basket we get each week and the recipe I found was great. I called them Pizzas and the kids gobbled them up. Here is the recipe. Enjoy!
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup egg white with 1 tbsp Italian dressing
  • 1 cup glutino dry bread crumbs salted and peppered and 1 tsp basil
  • 1 eggplant, sliced into 1/2 inch rounds 8-10 slices
  • salt to taste
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced or 1 pt stewed tomatoes
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese or Asia-go
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese or goat cheese
  • 1 cup of Gruyere grated


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place eggs and bread crumbs in 2 separate bowls. Dip eggplant slices in eggs, then in bread crumbs to coat. Fry coated eggplant slices in the skillet until golden brown. Season with salt, and drain on paper towels.
  3. In same pan put onion and tomato with juices and cook down till no juice, similar to pizza sauce.
  4. In the prepared baking dish, layer eggplant, onion, tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, feta or goat cheese. Top with Gruyere.
  5. Bake 20-30 minutes in the preheated oven, until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Dutch Sugar cookie recipe
The sugar cookie made me giddy, it rolls out beautifully and tastes great, you can cut it good with cookie cutters and the joy it brings to my boys faces when they can have a treat like the rest of us.

SERVES 36 -40 , 36 -40 cookies (change servings and units)



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Have on hand 2 ungreased cookie sheets.

  2. In a small bowl, whish together the flour mix, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In the bowl of your mixer, cream sugar and crisco. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients, mixing enough to combine. The dough will be a soft ball. With your hands, knead in enough of the potato starch to make the dough easy to handle and roll out.

  4. Using about half at a time, place a piece of plastic wrap over the ball and roll out to about 1/8 inch thickness. This is so easy I didn't even use the plastic wrap.

  5. Cut into desired shapes and place on pan.

  6. Decorate with coloured sugars before baking or use frosting to decorate after baking.

  7. (With this dough, you can use all the scraps.) Just scrape them together and roll out again. They will not get tough.

  8. Bake for about 10-13 minutes. Cool very slightly before removing from the pan.
