Hello! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything. I’ve been making a lot of the same things over and over and well, life gets in the way sometimes. But I wanted to share with you this bread recipe I’ve been making very often since last March. It’s very easy and extremely tasty! This bread requires the use of a lot of eggs. Thankfully, I’m at a point that I can tolerate eggs in baked goods, but not by themselves. So, this bread may not be for you if you eggs are big no-no for you. The best part … Continue reading
I love raw veggies and hummus and vegetable dips! There is always something in the fridge to dip into. Now it’s time for a new twist! Introducing Smoky Black Bean Dip. It’s just like hummus, only hummus is technically only made with chickpeas. This is really good with raw veggies and even tortilla chips. Sometimes it comes out looking brown and sometimes it almost looks purple…which is fun and makes it more desirable to kids.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything. I’ve just been making the same ole things over and over. But with the advent of spring, warmer temps, budding trees, I’ve felt the desire to start making new things in the kitchen again. So, with that, I give you this mostly vegetable smoothie. It’s a perfect way to “detox” from all the heavy winter foods. This is one of those recipes where I just dumped ingredients in and took good notes. And it turned out great! You need a high speed blender to get a really smooth texture for this surprisingly delicious … Continue reading
Disclaimer: I was not asked to write this nor was I compensated. I pretty much skip over the gluten free sections of grocery stores and stick to naturally gluten free foods. Or I make it myself. It is more cost efficient and much healthier. However, I did feel like giving these Udi’s Thin & Crispy Pizza Crusts a try. They are gluten free, as well as soy, nut and dairy free! They do contain eggs. The top 3 ingredients in the list are water, tapioca starch and brown rice flour, then all the typical processed food type ingredients. Two come … Continue reading
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
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
If you are a fan of food blogs, I’m sure you heard mention of high-speed or high-powered blenders such as Vitamix, Ninja, or Blendtec by now. I’ve finally joined the ranks and I am not looking back! Never will I go back to a standard blender again! My high-speed/powered blender can obliterate anything! In mere seconds. Take this blueberry smoothie for instance. (Yes, the picture isn’t great….I had to take a picture of leftovers and before it got gobbled up). In a regular blender, blueberries do not get completely pureed and you are left with chunks of blueberry stuck in … Continue reading
I have some exciting news to share! But first, let me tell you about Mylan and Disney. Well, everyone knows about Disney! Mickey Mouse, theme parks, you know. Mylan is a pharmaceutical company; creators of the Epi-Pen. Mylan and Disney have formed an alliance to make Disney parks and cruise ships just a little more allergy friendly. For those with life threatening food allergies, taking any sort of trip is scary and carrying an Epi-Pen Auto Injector to treat potential anaphylaxis is a must! With this alliance in place, starting at the end of 2014, there are now Epi-Pen locations … Continue reading
July is the month to celebrate the French Fry! Did you know that? French Fries can be made out of vegetables other than potatoes. I’ve been serving up a variety of French Fries to the family for about two weeks practicing different types of fries. Turnip fries, rutabaga fries, sweet potato fries and the beloved potato fry. You can find my recipes for these fries by reading my article about French Fries over at My Life With Food Allergies. Click here to learn how. Also shared at Allergy Free Wednesday.
One of the main reasons I do not post every day, or every other day or even weekly is because I will only put up recipes that actually work and taste great. Honestly, I am surprised by the number of food bloggers that “put up recipes” that do not work. I know my way around a kitchen very well, and if I can’t make a recipe that I read on another’s blog work, then I really don’t think the average reader can. I have had this experience time and again when trying other’s gluten free cracker recipes. I have never … Continue reading
