Shredded Beet Salad with Fresh Raspberry Vinaigrette

Shredded Beet Salad with Fresh Raspberry Vinaigrette3

I am not an intuitive cook, nor did I grow up in the kitchen with my mom (thus learning how to cook).  My mom did not enjoy being in the kitchen and only did so because, well, we had to eat something.  I really don’t know where I developed a passion for food, but from […]

Dairy-Free Fruit Parfaits and Fun Fruit Sundaes

Dairy-Free Fruit Parfait0

This is a new favorite dessert of mine, it also makes for a high fiber breakfast.  I have been on a melon kick lately and have been branching outside of the cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelons that I usually buy.  In the above photo, the peach colored melon is a Crenshaw Melon. According to FoodReference.com: Crenshaw […]

Strawberry Agua Frescas

Strawberry Agua Fresca0

It has been hot in New Mexico, and I mean Hades hot! The temperatures have been hitting the low 100’s and that is unusual for New Mexico this time of year.  The heat is getting to me and I have found myself being lazy in the kitchen, and with the laundry, and with the, oh […]

Gluten Free Churros

Gluten Free Churros0

Back in early March, Alta from Tasty Eats at Home posted a Gluten-Free Churro recipe for her Kids in the Kitchen series.  When I saw them, I knew I had to make some for Sam.  Churros were his favorite treat before he went gluten-free.  In case you do not know what a Churro is, they […]

Funny Oranges

gelatin-oranges9

After I got the Breville Citrus Press and started making fresh squeezed orange juice each morning, I found myself knee deep in orange peels.  Instead of throwing them all away, I wondered if I could use some of them for a fun lunchbox treat.  I remembered seeing a recipe for Gelatin Oranges on Disney’s Family […]

Homemade Limeade Concentrate

I love Limeade, especially during the hot summer months.  I find it to be even more refreshing than Lemonade or water for that matter.   While I have been learning to reach for water first, or even sparkling water with a spritz of freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice (no added sweetener), I still enjoy […]

Meatballs (Gluten-Free, Corn-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free and Soy-Free)

meatballs18

Maybe I should have called them “Eggless Meatball Wonders,” or “Guiltless Meatballs,” because there are several nutritious ingredients cleverly hidden inside, and you cannot even tell! Ever since I started experimenting with “flax eggs,” I have become increasingly impressed with the results in most of my experiments.  So much so, I have found myself buried […]

Easter Cupcakes

Easter Cupcakes

Yesterday, Luke and I made cupcakes for his class Easter party so we thought we would show you our handiwork! I use the Better Crocker GF Cake Mixes because they are easy and predictable when I am short on time.  I hope to start working on finding some good scratch recipes over the coming months […]

“Tricky” Chocolate Pudding

I blame this recipe for my youngest child’s O.B.S.E.S.S.I.O.N. with chocolate! Luke was my smallest baby, at 7 lbs. 13 ounces and 21″ long. That may not seem “small” for a newborn, especially one that was born 2 weeks early, but Sam was 9 lbs. and 23-inches long! Sam never lost an ounce after he […]

Gluten-Free Powdered Donuts/Doughnuts

Gluten-Free Powdered Donuts

Whether you spell it Donut or Doughnut, they both represent the same thing. Whether you are a Dunkin’ Donuts type of donut person or a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts type of doughnut person, it doesn’t matter because if you are gluten-free like me, you cannot have either! Back in December, I had to figure how to […]
