Check out my two part series on My Life With Food Allergies, describing all the gluten free flours I have in my freezer and refrigerator.

We’ve had some early mornings around here; as in getting out the door by 6 o’clock A.M! So rather than eating nothing or eating poorly, I decided we needed a good protein breakfast bar. It had to: Be able to be made ahead of time. Freeze and thaw well. Taste well, but be low in sugar. Travel well, as in not be crumbly or fall apart all over the place. I also wanted something that would fill us up. Two things are needed for that: protein and fiber. This breakfast bar has both. Let’s look at a few of the … Continue reading
So today marks TWO years since I posted my first article/recipe. Happy Anniversary or Happy Birthday, whatever you want to call it, to me a/k/a Allergy Free Test Kitchen! It has been fun. I hope you have found this blog helpful, encouraging and yummy! So, the summer has been crazy and I feel I haven’t posted as much as I have in the past. Just when I thought things would settle down with the start of school and all, I have computer issues. Computer issues are never fun, but when you write a blog having a working computer is kind … Continue reading
A brownie without eggs is difficult to make. A brownie without eggs that is also gluten free that tastes good is even harder. Sure, I’ve tried many recipes, from bloggers to well-known cookbook authors. I tried many versions of my own with so-so results. I have not found one that I would make again and again. Until now. And I’m sure you have heard of people making brownies with black beans and it sounds strange, I know. But this recipe is so, so much better than other black bean brownies you may have tasted. I know that to be true … Continue reading
What if I told you that you could make ice cream not only without milk, but without dairy free milk too? And what if I told you it would be rich and creamy?

With the pie filling having no added sugar it is super healthy too! What more could you want? Anyone could make this it is so easy! And there are many people without food restrictions that … Continue reading

Maybe you are not gluten free or have allergies, but like to cook REAL FOOD! That is time consuming too!

July is national ice cream month. So what better time to talk about a new dairy free ice cream cookbook!?!? (The author did not ask me to write this, I just chose too). As I happen to have a July birthday, my husband bought me the cookbook Dairy-Free Ice Cream – 75 Recipes Made Without Eggs, Gluten, Soy, or Refined Sugar. I love reading and perusing through cookbooks, but I think it was also a subtle (or not so subtle) clue to make more ice cream. This cookbook is BEAUTIFUL! It is one of the prettiest cookbooks I have ever … Continue reading
Making a casserole is a once in a while thing in my house. I have made this Mexican Bean Baked Casserole a handful of times and thought I would pass it on. It refrigerates well and reheats well, so it works for leftovers. I always love to have leftovers…makes lunch the next day, EASY! The recipe is flexible. Love cheese? Or should I say Daiya? Load it up. Not so much…go skimpy. Same thing goes with a lot of the other ingredients. I use these homemade tortillas in the recipe. I like to top my piece with some dairy free … Continue reading

Today’s recipe is one I found on the Whole Foods blog. I know people are looking for breakfast ideas and quinoa ideas. So I decided to bake this up and test it out for you. This recipe for Cherry Quinoa Breakfast Bake makes a lot, but according to the Whole Foods blog this will last 5 days. That’s perfect! Make it Sunday evening and you’ll have a breakfast ready and waiting for you every morning. It can be eaten cold or warm, but it tastes much better warm. I followed the recipe almost to the tee so I’ll send you … Continue reading
