New Zealand Girl Cooks WorldNew Zealand Girl Cooks WorldAlthough you guys are probably used to periodic radio silence around here by now, this time I actually had a legit excuse: I just got back from a much-needed vacation.  I ended up going on a pretty epic road trip through New Zealand and it was so nice to unplug, go on almost-daily hikes, and eat some pretty amazing gluten-free food.

But as great as the food in New Zealand was (more on that later… Vogel’s gluten-free bread alone deserves its own post!), I’m excited to get back in the kitchen and load up on veggies in an attempt to counteract all that dairy and starch I’ve been eating.   I have a backlog of Thai recipes that I just didn’t have time to post before my trip, so those should be ready to go soon.  Hopefully they”ll be a nice break from all those holiday recipes that are certainly clogging your readers these days.
