Yummy Ramen Recipe


This recipe was inspired by Edible Hawaiian Islands Magazine - the winter edition.

When I saw this recipe I thought that Ramen might be a good thing to share with you. I have been buying this Lotus brand of Ramen for several months. Ramen is one of the most simple meals when you are not in the mood to cook much, and every now and then a gal needs noodles!


I keep mine in the freezer so that it stays fresh. Use whatever vegetables you might have on hand and whatever broth you might have. It is all good!


Boil the noodles for 4 minutes.

Strain and place the noodles into a bowl. Add warm broth, chopped veggies and whatever else your little heart desires.


In the picture I used some steamed spinach, left over pumpkin squash and chopped cabbage. Enjoy!

Are you ready for the bread of a lifetime? This vegan banana with millet is what makes this moist bread have a nice crunch to it. Make this for your friends for the holiday. Or, just for you. Hide it somewhere you can find it for a late night snack, or first thing in the morning. Such a yummy!


3 ripe bananas (about 1 1/2 cup)

3/4 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp chia seeds soaked in 2 1/2 cups water for about 20 minutes (use flax as well)

3 tbsp melted coconut oil

1/2 cup of brown sugar

3 1/2 tsp double acting baking powder

3/4 tsp Celtic Sea Salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

3/4 cup sesame milk (blend 1 heaping tbsp of hulled sesame seeds with 3/4 cup water)

1 1/4 cup almond meal

1 1/4 cup gluten free flour or gluten free pancake mix (organic, of course)

1 1/4 cup millet (un-cooked)

Began Banana Bread


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line pan with a little coconut oil, the a sprinkle of flour of choice.

Mash bananas and combine all ingredients together, and blend thoroughly. Bake for one hour and 12 minutes, depending on your oven. Cool slightly before serving.

When ever I make this, I can hardly stand waiting till it cools. I go for it as long it is not too hot to hold. Notice it may be very moist at first, but it firms up after it cools. Yum, Yum, Yum

Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats


There is really nothing like a scrumptious bowl of hot cereal almost any time of day, but especially on a cool morning. Personally, I love a bowl of steel cuts oats for lunch or an afternoon snack. Now, you can have gluten free steel cut oats from Bob's Red Mill. In this recipe I added a chopped apple and a few dates. Then I topped my steaming bowl with my holiday cranberry sauce flavored with doTerra's Wild Orange Essential Oil. OMG! I can hardly wait for tomorrow to make it again.

The Products I Love

I love telling people about the products I use, because it makes a huge difference. I use what I find to be the best, so you will often see some of my recipe reflect a brand. I am learning to bake more and experiment with gluten free cooking and backing. So, you will see a lot with Bob's Red Mill products. They have such an incredible variety, made with impeccable integrity, which means delicious taste and texture.  I am also experimenting with non-dairy milks and creamers. NutPods has just come into my life. It is fantastic! Not over flavored or too sweet; great product
