Seasons Greetings from New Mexico!

Snow in New Mexico- Karina Allrich

Bunny tracks and a low flannel sky sifting snow. My view today. We have a buffalo roast with cranberries and wine in the slow cooker. A fire in the kiva. A quiet-as-a-field-mouse day here in northern New Mexico.

Snow in New Mexico- and bunny! Karina Allrich

Sending out a bundle of wishes for a safe and warm holiday to all- be it Christmas, Hanukkah, Yule, or simply Thursday. Be well, Dear Readers. And thank you for your comment love this past year. I appreciate every kind word, your recipe tweaks and stories shared.

Snow in New Mexico- Karina Allrich

One more glimpse of snow in New Mexico- our view. 

My New Year's gift to you? During the next week- or two- I'll be busy behind the scenes creating printable recipes. 

Be safe, be healthy, and be good to one another.

Merry Christmas to you too.

I just want you to know how valuable this blog is to myself and my daughter(16).

She is allergic to so many things. When we found out a year ago about her food allergies the first thing out of her mouth was "I'll never have a wedding cake, will I" and that began my quest to find cakes, cookies, etc for my sweet loving girl.

Today, we made your breakfast brownies. They are great, and she didn't feel left out either.

Bless you, my dear.

Bless you.

Thank you for all you do all through the year Karina! And thank you for the gift of printable pages!
Happy Everything to you!

Awww bunnies and snow! I'm very jealous, I love both!

Have a Happy Christmas and thank you for all the yumminess you provide throughout the year!

Love seeing the pictures of New Mexico winter. How exciting about the printable recipe pages. I was just thinking today that I need to improve my own printing process, but I think that may have to wait until I'm retired!

Printable recipes! Yay! It is a gift to my husband as well for he panics watching me spill and splash ingredients near my laptop that I set on the kitchen counter. Thank you.
Many Blessings,

Printable recipes!?! You mean I won't have to chop vegetables and pour hot liquids by my laptop unless I really want to? But that was half the fun of making your recipes!
(Sarcasm aside printable recipes rock!)

Happy New Year!! :-)

Sounds lovely. We also have a flannel sky in Oklahoma, and Bill bought me your Tastebook for Christmas. I'm very happy.

Tweaking isn't fun behind the scenes, but it will be nice for your readers.~~Dee

Fabulous! Can't wait for the print feature. I love organizing my recipes in 8 1/2" by 11" looseleaf notebooks with all the recipes in plastic sleeve protectors. So easy to find, and it's cut down on the number of cookbooks I keep on hand (I'm truly overboard on collecting cookbooks).

I also want to take this opportunity to tell you how delighted I am with your most recent recipes--many nutrition-dense and vegan. Also, thank you for updating during this busiest of seasons. And finally, what awe-inspiring scenes from around your home. Almost makes me think I'm living in the wrong place! Those snowy mountains are gorgeous.

Beautiful pictures and sentiments (love the "quiet-as-a-field-mouse day" ... those are the best days I think!) and the meal cooking in the crock pot sounds absolutely divine. Looking forward to the results of your tweaking. ;-) Thanks so much!

Thank you Karina, and happy holidays to you. I will enjoy the printable recipe feature.

Wanted you to know I made the mexican chocolate cake to rave reviews for Christmas dinner. I also made your pumpkin corn muffins - several asked for the recipe, and I pointed them your way. With food like this, my husband loves doing dishes. ;)

Karina Dear, happy holidays!

I love your recipes! They've brought brightness to what initially felt like a gloomy diagnosis: gluten intolerance with assorted food sensitivities. Could be worse, I realized, after doing some research. Lucky me, I only have "Celiac Lite"!

I've been enjoying your recipes, art, blog, and links to valuable information for some time now, and am grateful for your skill as an artist and chef and writer. The Jungian slant resonates as well. I wonder what the archetype of gluten disorders looks like...

Printable recipes directly from your website will be wonderful! I've been copying and pasting them into Word...tedious reformatting worth the effort, needless to say, ans saves my laptop. Thank you, thank you for taking the tedious steps toward an easy-to-print option.

Snowed-in here in Portland, OR :( but a perfect opportunity to try another delicious Karina recipe!

Jenn said...

Another fan eagerly awaiting printable recipes -- I'd be lost without my 3-ring-binder eclectic "cookbook," too!

Happy holidays! Your photos (and your description of your quiet winter wonderland) are beautiful!

Marla said...

Happy Holidays and my best for 2009. I don't have the beautiful snow here in the Central Valley of California but it is plenty cold. We have never met but you have been one of the most influential people of my life this past year...helping me to get healthy. All my best to you and your family.

Lauren said...

Hope you had a blessed holiday, Karina! I still make your positively addictive fake cheese sauce to go with veggies at least once a week. Thank you for all that you do! I'm sorry if I was a bit critical about agave earlier in the year. We all have to use what works for ourselves.

Here's to a delicious gf '09!

so extremely happy about the printable pages- i have been scribbling down the recipes then running them down to the kitchen not my fav way of going about it..i am already cooking-baking challenged need all the help i can get/thankyou!

Hi, Karina!
I am SO HAPPY I've run across this blog!!!!!!!
Our family has been gluten-free for nearly 6 months now, and after stumbling across your blog yesterday I can hardly pull myself away from the computer! I cannot wait to try your pumpkin pie - and I'm so happy to have access to your yummy recipes. They look so fabulous and I can't wait to try them all. Thanks for doing the blog!!!!! Happy New Year!

Happy new year Karina. I'm new to this blog - was looking for a way to cook my quinoa flakes one day and came across it. I've been hooked ever since! Your enthusiasm is infectious and your photos wonderful. Thank you very much for being so generous.

I also wish to apologize for an earlier comment I made this year disparaging tuna casserole. I came across an earlier post of yours regarding said casserole, and I realized I had put my foot in my mouth.

Thank you for your blog. It is a touchstone for me--a place filled with inspiration and joy in living. Please know that you are truly appreciated. Much love to you and yours in the new year.
