Details

Epicureaders welcomes Kelly as our newest member! In honor of the brains we are not and the diets we are on, let's have a healthy dinner.

Here are a couple of websites with recipes to consider: Elana's Pantry focuses on gluten-free but also on whole grains and no refined sugar--this is where I got that clementine cake recipe, and she has delicious savory recipes as well. Whole Foods market recipes.
