Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free Soy-Free French Toast Sticks

goosberrypatch

Disclaimer: The actual French Toast that you see in the picture is NOT dairy-free and egg-free.  I began this impromptu project late in the evening and I was too tired to make up some homemade dairy-free pancake mix and bake a fresh loaf of vegan bread (especially since I have never made it before)…but the […]

Vegan Cashew Cream Cheese, Vitamixed

Cashew Cream Cheese

I am feeling pretty darn excited about this homemade vegan cashew cream cheese I recently made, thanks to the amazing Carrie over at Ginger Lemon Girl!  Seriously, who’da thunk it?? Sure, vegans have known about the amazing powers of nuts for years, but, I am not a vegan.  I’m not even dairy-free (yet), so up […]

Gluten Free Pizza Rolls and Toasted Ravioli

Gluten Free Toasted Ravioli

Okay, here it is!  This is so exciting for me, I never imagined being able to enjoy toasted ravioli again.  Not only is the toasted ravioli in the above photo gluten-free, but it is also allergy-friendly too! This post is now linked to a great series that the lovely Jenn (a chemist!) over at Jenn […]

Gluten Free and Egg Free Pasta Dough

Gluten Free, Egg Free, Vegan Pasta Dough Recipe

First, I must apologize for the lack of noodles in the above picture.  I’m sure you can imagine the many uses for a plate full of fresh noodles that a 6 and 3 year old boy’s imagination could muster up (I’m still not sure how one ended up in the fishbowl).  I am also sorry […]

Lunchbox Fun: Inside Out Sandwiches & Homemade “Panera Bread” Tomato Soup

LunchboxFunInsideOutSandwiches

The inspiration for this nifty little concoction came from the Taste of Home Magazine.  I thought this would be a great introduction to the joys of sandwiches for my kiddos, who are meat-sandwich adverse.  I really don’t get it, but they will only eat a nut butter & jelly sandwich.  Deli meats must be cubed […]

Homemade Dairy-Free, Soy-Free “Processed” Cheese

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Soy-Free "Processed" Cheese0

Okay, let’s just address this upfront.  “Say whaaa?“ Well, there is a very big NEED for gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free cheese slices and I can’t seem find a commercial one anywhere!  I got excited the other day when I found some “cheese” that looked like it would fit the bill perfectly BUT then (there’s always a […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Sopaipillas

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Sopapillas4

Gluten-Free Sopaipillas.  Fluffy “pillows” of fried dough, drizzled with sweet honey…oh, how I never thought this day would come!! Why is this such a big deal to me, you ask?  Well, I live in New Mexico, the birthplace of sopaipillas and they are as commonplace in New Mexican restaurants as bread baskets are in Italian […]

Homemade Gelatin-Free “Jello” Oranges and Fruit Cups

Gelatin-Free-Jello11-300x199

My youngest son loves “jelly” cups (a.k.a. Jello/Gelatin), but when we started a synthetic dye-free challenge a few months ago, out went the Jello brand gelatin cups!  I tried a product by the NutraDrink company called Natural Jel Desserts back in May (see my “Funny Oranges post”) and while I was initially impressed with the […]

Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Gluten-Free & Soy-Free Chocolate Pudding

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding2

For this chocolate pudding, I pretty much merged two recipes I found online: a recipe for Homemade Vanilla Pudding that I found on allrecipes.com and Tyler Florence’s recipe for Chocolate Pudding which I found on FoodNetwork.com.  I then made my dairy-free substitutions and finished with MimicCreme Healthy Top Whipped Cream! Ingredients 2 cups Milk (I […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free Chocolate Pudding

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Chocolate Pudding0

NOTE:  This recipe does contain tree nuts (almond and cashews).  At the end of this post, I will tell you of a dry pudding mix that will setup with dairy-free milk (at least it does with So Delicious Original Coconut Milk). Okay, I am really excited about this recipe!  My 3 year old LOVES chocolate […]
