I Must Love Me Too

If you have neglected yourself,
make a sincere apology to thee.
Gather the "love-me-not-petals" of your life
and start counting "I-must-love-me-too".
In no time at all you have
a beautiful flower blossom within you. ~ Dodinsky Writings

Gluten Free Cider Gravy

If you or someone in your home is avoiding gluten this holiday season, you might be thinking about how everyone's meals will be affected. How do you plan those celebratory meals and stay gluten-free?

If you're sticking with tradition, start with the turkey — some brands of turkey contain additives that must be closely checked to see whether they contain gluten. Read the ingredients, and make sure you're safe.

Gravy is a holiday must. Here's a recipe with a new, gluten-free twist.


1 cup apple juice

1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1 teaspoon garlic

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon lemon juice

3 tablespoons cornstarch

2 teaspoons mulling spice

1 teaspoon thyme


In a medium saucepan, combine apple juice and chicken broth. Whisk in garlic, mustard, lemon juice and cornstarch. Heat on medium-high until sauce reaches a low boil, then reduce heat. Grind mulling spice in spice or coffee grinder. Add mulling spice and thyme to mixture. Heat until desired thickness is achieved. Serve immediately.
