Recipes – Eggless Pancakes

About a year ago,  I discovered that I was allergic to eggs.  Aside from having to cut out a lot of foods from my diet, it hasn’t been so bad.  I suffered from mild to severe asthma since I was a teenager and after cutting eggs out my asthma has completely disappeared!  If you haven’t […]

Recipes – My egg replacer

I ran out of eggs this morning but really wanted to make some corn bread. So, I improvised. The recipe only calls for one egg so it isn’t that devastating to replace it with something else. I wanted the cornbread to be moist, not-too dense, have good flavor and with a little tang. So I […]

Recipe – Vegetable Medley
