Make Your Own “Canned” Salmon

If you ever prepare salmon patties or a salmon loaf the recipe almost always calls for canned salmon.  I don’t know about you, but I find canned salmon really gross.  There is black skin in there and bones and you have the added worry of the can being lined with BPA and it is likely not wild caught. So I set out to see if I could make it myself!  And I like to share easy cooking tips now and then.  Follow the pictures below to see how it’s done. First, buy a package of wild caught salmon fillets.  The … Continue reading

Grain Free Gluten Free Coconut Flour Biscuits

I’m intrigued by Paleo baking. For those who don’t know…that is baking without any grains…even gluten free ones. A lot of Paleo recipes I see call for the use of eggs. Especially if one is using coconut flour. That usually requires the use of a lot of eggs. While I normally avoid eggs, I am at a point where I can eat them in a baked good on occasion. One thing I’ve been making with coconut flour is biscuits to go with dinner. These are easy to put together, taste great and guilt free….no gluten, no grain. I blog with … Continue reading

Chocolate Date Balls

Chocolate! Give me chocolate! Who doesn’t love a chocolate treat now and then? These raw chocolate date balls are the perfect way to enjoy chocolate. No added sugar! All sweetness comes from dates. Medjool dates work best because they are so, so naturally sweet and creamy! Regular dates work also! No matter what kind of date you purchase, they can be either hard to find or expensive. So I usually opt to make these around Christmas time. They may not be a “typical” holiday treat, but they do work wonderfully at this time. To me, they are guilt free indulgence! … Continue reading

Grain Free Sandwich Rounds

I have been making these grain free sandwich rounds for quite some time now and figured it is high time I share the recipe! These are so easy and awesome tasting. In fact, they are actually kind of neutral tasting which is what makes them so fabulous! They go with anything! (Yes, they are yellow looking, but one bite and you’ll forget all about the color!) I have made regular “turkey, lettuce and tomato” sandwiches with these sandwich rounds. They are a delish way to make PB&J. Don’t forget burgers…they make a good hamburger bun. And they even hold up … Continue reading

Seriously….these are dangerous. Some cashew butter (try homemade!), coconut, and a few other simple ingredients and next thing you know, you’ve satisfied your sweet tooth. Also shared at Allergy … Continue reading

Spinach and Bean Burritos

I am excited to share this recipe with you today as I don’t post new recipes as much as I used to. This is an old recipe that is coming out of retirement and getting a gluten free, dairy free makeover. (Originally, it came from some magazine…I have it cut out and taped to an index card). Years ago, I made this frequently and in my house it actually goes by a different name. It’s named after a kid who as an older baby/toddler would eat this like there was no tomorrow. Seriously, it was hilarious seeing a 13 month … Continue reading

Pumpkin and Cranberry Granola

Making your own food is part of the gluten free, dairy free, (or allergy free) lifestyle. It just comes with territory and everyone is better off because of it. Homemade is always better! This is so true when it comes to granola; you can control the amount of oil and sugar used. So, in the spirit of autumn and all things pumpkin, I created a Pumpkin and Cranberry Granola recipe for Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT). (I was not compensated). You can find the recipe by clicking here. And if you love granola as much as I do, … Continue reading

Sugar Free, Dye Free, Naturally Flavored Refreshing Drink

All summer long I had been making iced herbal tea by the glassful. Almost every day. Then I decided I needed to make a whole pitcher’s worth. I’ve been sitting on this for some time now and it’s time to share it. It doesn’t need to be summer to enjoy a cold beverage! If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know I like precision. Exact quantities in recipes make for excellent results. Same goes for this drink. Precise recipe = refreshing drink. Don’t freak out about the apple cider vinegar.  It just adds a little “punch” or … Continue reading

Make Your Own Almond Butter

Making your own almond butter is as simple as 1-2-3! Seriously, this isn’t even a recipe. Throw some almonds in a food processor, turn it on, and in about 5 minutes you have almond butter. Smooth, creamy, and only one ingredient. No oils, no sweeteners, (none needed, really), good for you almond butter. I had been buying oven roasted almonds at Aldi assuming they were cheapest there. It turns out that Trader Joe’s oven roasted almonds are 8 cents an ounce cheaper than Aldi. Go figure. Then I checked Sam’s Club and, yes, per ounce, they are 5 cents cheaper … Continue reading

25 Tips For Better Grilling

As I stand in my back yard I can see the back yards of 5 houses. It’s not optimum, but it is what it is. What I find odd, very strange actually, is that none of these people grill their meals. Like ever. We have a least 7 months where weather permits us to grill and I never see anyone grilling. And I’m outdoors a lot. It seems strange to me because grilling is such an easy way to prepare meals. Not only is it easy, it’s usually fast and healthy. Not to mention it’s very easy to make gluten … Continue reading
