Gluten Free Stuffed Mushrooms

Gluten-Free Stuffed Mushrooms

With party season now upon us, there can never be a shortage of tasty gluten free finger foods!  The following recipe for stuffed mushrooms were my husband’s absolute favorite before we gave up dairy. The great thing about this recipe?  The stuffed mushrooms are naturally gluten-free so no substitutions are necessary…unless of course you want […]

Gluten-Free Vegan French Onion Dip, Football Party Food (and a few giveaway winners)

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Vegan French Onion Dip

Since going dairy-free earlier this year there have been few things I actually miss (I’m not vegan but we don’t eat dairy and my son is allergic to eggs).  Which is really quite surprising to me seeing that it wasn’t too long ago that I could put back nearly a gallon of milk a day.  If […]

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Honey Spice Cookies

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Honey Spice Cookies_2

Today’s post and recipe for gluten-free pumpkin honey spice cookies is courtesy of the National Honey Board.  I did add some recommendations to make these cookies dairy-free and egg-free, as well as a couple flavor variations because my husband is not a big fan of nuts and dried fruit in his cookies. The version with […]

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Candied Yams

How to Make The BEST Gluten-Free Turkey Gravy

How to make Gluten-Free Gravy

What is Thanksgiving without the gravy?  Just an ordinary meal in my opinion.  I could honestly go without most of the Thanksgiving feast, as long as I have gluten-free sage dressing drowning in gluten-free turkey gravy.  And maybe some canned cranberry sauce.  Admit it, cranberry sauce is just not nearly as interesting when its not […]

Gluten-Free Sage Dressing (Updated)

Thanksgiving, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Sage Dressing, Recipe

This recipe was originally published in 2009, but I’ve updated it with new photos and substitution recommendations for accommodating additional allergens. This recipe for Sage dressing hails from my Grandma in Austin, Minnesota (hi Gram!).   It is without a doubt one of my favorite Schmidt family recipes and I have such fond memories of making […]

Gluten and Grain-Free Crab Cakes

Crab Cakes Grain-Free, Egg-Free and Soy-Free**

  I can vividly recall the first time I was introduced to a crab cake.  I was 25 years old and we met in a dimly lit restaurant over a glass of Cabernet.  I was shy at first, but my tall and handsome companion gently urged me to put aside my ambivalence and surrender to […]

Kickin’ Chicken Soup

Kickin' Chicken Soup

My in-laws are the king and queen of soup recipes and this is one of my absolute favorites, perfect for a crisp autumn day like today…it will warm you right up! Another bonus, it’s naturally gluten-free so there are no hard-to-find specialty products you need to buy or make ahead of time.
