Unusual Salad Dressing

I’m at a loss for words when it comes to naming this salad dressing. Maybe you all can suggest a good name for it? For now I’m settling on “unusual salad dressing.” Why? Because it is actually unusual tasting; in my book anyway. And oddly, it is kiddo’s VERY FAVORITE salad dressing of all time! Seriously, put on this homemade ranch dressing, or this Russian dressing, or bottled Italian dressing and we get very little salad in little person. However, if I make this one….down the hatchet it goes. Even seconds are sometimes requested. I’ve made this multiple ways using … Continue reading

Russian Dressing – Refined Sugar Free, Soy Free

Today’s recipe comes courtesy of one of my readers.  She saw my Russian Cranberry Chicken post where I stated making my own Russian Dressing was on my to-do list.  Well, no more.  Thanks to her, she sent me a copy of her Russian Dressing recipe that is soy free and refined sugar free as well as free of all the other stuff I stay clear from.   There is ketchup in the recipe so in order to make this corn free, sugar free and soy free (as well as milk and gluten free) you have to purchase the good ketchup.  … Continue reading

An Allergy Friendly Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is coming soon.  It doesn’t have to be a scary time if you have food allergies. You can still have a great meal. Here are some ideas to go with your turkey or ham to dress your table and nourish your soul.

Fun Finds Friday – Blueberry Sauce

Fun Finds Friday is here! Recently I had been shopping and saw a bottle of blueberry sauce.  As usual, I turned over the jar to read the label.  While it had no allergens (shocking!) it was not blueberry sauce.  It was high fructose corn syrup and other chemical sounding names.  It had something like “blueberry flavoring” in it.  Five years ago I probably would have bought it.  Now?  Not a chance. But then I had a hankering for blueberry sauce to go over pancakes.  So, off I went to find a recipe.  I found a recipe for this blueberry sauce.  … Continue reading

Allergy Free Thousand Island Dressing (And Why It Is Named That)

I like to check out cookbooks from the library occasionally.  I found Cooking Free by Carol Fenster, PhD.  To me, it appears to be one of the “first” allergy friendly cookbooks having been published 8 years ago.  I’m actually surprised that I had not heard of or seen her cookbook before now.  While flipping through the book I came across a recipe for Thousand Island Dressing.  I was never one to eat this dressing, but I thought my husband would enjoy it and in an effort to make our salads varied I thought I would make it.   I adapted … Continue reading

Vegan Ranch Dressing

Two and a half years.  That is how long I have been milk free.  And that is how long I went without Ranch dressing.  I always intended to come up with a recipe for it.  But somehow I never got around to it.  Then a few weeks ago I got a real hankering for it.    Rather than do it myself, I thought I would look for a recipe on another blog.  Surely, someone had come up with a good Ranch dressing!  This Ranch dressing is delicious!  I can barely remember what the bottled stuff from the store tastes like, … Continue reading
