Fathers Who Harm

Father's Day has become a more highlighted day of celebration than when I was a child. My father was born in 1927 and lived a pretty long life: he died in 2013, a few months into his 86th year. He was not a bad father. He did struggle with alcohol addiction and was imperfect in other ways, but he was basically loving and kind. He was a workaholic, so we did not have access to him for emotional affirmation, but he told me in his old age that he always loved everything about us kids and felt sad that he had not been a better parent, and he was sorry he was most of all that he had not spent more time with us.  Other men in my family– my grandfathers, my husband, son, uncles, brother– have all shown themselves to be good guys and have adult children whom they love(d) and who love them back.  But I think to myself, having been a social worker to women and children who fled lives with men who put them and their children through Hell, that there are probably a fair number of children, te

Gluten-free Stovetop Stuffing

Gluten-free stove top stuffing-- a delish nosh bowl along with sauerkraut salad, hummus, broccoli, and kimchee.  The recipe for a plant-based gluten-free stovetop stuffing came about when I was using a little poultry seasoning in what I hoped would be a yummy savory quinoa flour waffle. For some reason, the waffle stuck to the iron (grrr) but I tasted the mess and it was quite lovely.  I filed the idea away for some sort of dish containing quinoa flour and poultry seasoning. After making a series of recipes for whole wheat crockpot bread and quinoa GF crockpot bread , I ended up with a heel of quinoa bread about five days old, needing some rescue recipe (too good to throw out or to allow to mold). Tonight was the night. INGREDIENTS FOR THE GLUTEN-FREE STUFFING RECIPE (Serves 4) The heel of a small heavy, soft  loaf of quinoa bread: about 4 slices + end/crust piece 1 cup of veggie broth (or like-chicken vegan broth) 1/2 cup toasted quinoa flour 3 tablespoons of coconut oil or margerine
