Strawberry jam made from Oregon berries is one of my favorite taste treats. Even though I would love to make up a pantry full of strawberry, blackberry, raspberry and blueberry jams, the reality is that I need something quick and easy to do in small batches.

Pesto

One of the flavor treats I’ve found in my gluten-free adventure is pesto. This version is also dairy free which I’ve comed to prefer.
