Gluten-free Oatmeal Scones


These are the best gluten-free scones available anywhere.  Many of the ones I have purchased at bakeries and food co-ops are dense and leaden.  These are tender, light and deliciously oat-y.  Try them with butter and a bit of your favorite fruit preserves.  And, of course, a hot cup of tea.

Claritha's Fried Chicken


The virtues of this recipe lie in the incredible crispness of the coating and the juiciness of the meat.  Your kitchen also won't be all oil-splattered with this method which calls for frying in fairly low heat in a covered pot.  Salting the chicken overnight draws out excess moisture so that spattering is kept to a minimum and the chicken remains flavorful and tender.
