It’s “Hump Day”! Strange phrase, but always reminds me that the weekend is nearing! I was feeling adventurous in the kitchen yesterday and converted a recipe from one of my favorite chefs – Jacques Pepin. I have several of his cookbooks and have never had a flop…even me! This comes from his “Fast Food My Way” and I would recommend this cookbook. This recipe was easy to adjust – only changing to gluten free flour and butter substitute. Depending on your family’s restrictions, you can serve over couscous, gluten-free pasta, rice…etc. Go ahead, give Jacques a try!
