Homemade kombucha is made from sweetened tea (pure green tea or black tea) that’s been fermented with a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast), also known as a “mother” because of its ability to reproduce.

These mini-latkes are baked, which means you don’t have to stand in front of a hot stove. Infused with autumn flavors like sweet potato, pumpkin and sage, they are surprisingly crisp when freshly baked. (They reheat nicely but they won’t be quite as crisp.) Top them with chopped fresh sage. This recipe can be made with egg replacement; see instructions below.
My son ordered the chicken guacamole melt with a side of hand cut fries. It came with unbelievably good and normal-sized gluten free bread. I had to ask what brand it was it was that good. Thats when I found out that they baked it on the premises and have an entire bakery in their basement that is divided up to avoid cross-contamination.

As a precursor to this issue, my husband and I attended a family wedding in San Francisco recently. My sister-in-laws childhood friend has adopted the Paleo diet (yes, another P word its destiny) and ordered cauliflower-based pizza crusts for dinner one night at home in the Bay Area as we decompressed following the wedding festivities. While Mark & I have had GF pizza crusts, this was our first experience with cauliflower crusts. We topped one with garlicky shrimp and spinach and a small amount of feta cheese (no seafood/dairy restrictions, as you can see). The other was topped with a variety of veggies and some cheddar.
