Creamy Cucumber Salad (corn-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, sugar-free)

Creamy Cucumber Salad

I’ve been thinking a lot about my 96 year old grandma lately.  She and I have always been really close but sadly, we live over 1,000 miles apart and I haven’t been able to see her in nearly 3 years.  I’ve always been compared to my grandma, mostly by our similarly strong personalities but the […]

Raw Sweet Potato Chips

Raw Sweet Potato Chips

I know what you are probably thinking, “Raw sweet potato chips, Heidi?  Did your oven break?” Notice I didn’t say raw sweet potato slices.  Although, those are quite tasty too!  Allergic to carrots?  Cut raw sweet potatoes in the shape of carrot sticks and dunk in your favorite veggie dip, you just might be surprised. […]

Homemade Beef Jerky, a Giveaway Winner…and a Revolution

Homemade Gluten-Free Allergy-Friendly Beef Jerky

Homemade Gluten-Free, Allergy-Friendly Beef Jerky.  Easy to make, challenging to photograph (in an appealing fashion anyway)! I love beef jerky, but all too often the prepackaged variety contains wheat so therefore it is off limits to me and my brood.  I’m actually kinda thankful for that because it is not only easy to make, but […]

Homemade Worcestershire Sauce: Guten Free and Corn Free (with a Soy Free option)

Gluten-Free Allergy-Free Worcestershire Sauce

I should have titled this post “WOO-HOOcestershire Sauce” because according to everyone I had taste it for me, it’s that good.  In fact, I pulled out my aging bottle of Lea & Perrins (which is gluten-free) for a side by side comparison, and my husband said the homemade Worcestershire sauce was much better all around, […]

Fluffy Buckwheat Pancakes, Chia Egg Replacer & Corn-Free Baking Powder

Modified Elimination Diet Pancakes

It doesn’t matter how you eat on a regular basis, one bite into one of these bad boys and I promise, you will be asking for more. I think these are without a doubt the best gluten-free pancakes I’ve made in the past 5 years and the most devilishly satisfying aspect of all? The pancakes […]

Detox January and a “Blues Clues Smoothie”

Green Smoothie2

When was the last time you said ‘I love you’ to yourself? Was it with a quiet day at the spa? A cucumber eye treatment with a purifying avocado, kale and lemon masque perhaps? Prior to a few days ago, that would have been my idea of self pampering.  I’m great at wearing green veggies […]

Corn-Free, Egg-Free and Soy-Free Mayonnaise (with a Giveaway!)

Egg-Free Mayo1

Homemade corn-free, egg-free, soy-free mayonnaise.  It may not seem like a big deal to some, but for this food allergic foodie…it was nothing short of a Christmas miracle! Having this little gem of a recipe allowed me to make a corn-free, dairy/casein-free, egg-free and soy-free Ranch dressing on Christmas day to go along with my […]

Biscochitos: Gluten-Free, Dairy/Casein-Free & Egg-Free

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free Biscochitos4

Now, I know many people are not fans of anise, but I encourage you to give this recipe for gluten free biscochitos a try anyway, they are scrumpdillyicious.  My best friend is averse to anise and refused to try one…well, until I started calling her names that is. A funny thing happened once she finally […]

Homemade Marshmallows: Corn-Free and Egg-Free (and Heidi’s Favorite Dairy-Free Hot Cocoa)

Homemade-Corn-Free-Egg-Free-Marshmallows8

It only took me close to a year to attempt making homemade marshmallows again, but there is no better motivation than being thrust onto the food allergy playground! I first attempted to make corn-free, gelatin-free marshmallows last January (you can read that post here), but there were egg whites in it.  I also used xanthan […]

Cut-Out Sugar Cookies, Corn-Free Powdered Sugar & Sugar Cookie Icing

Welcome back for Day 6 of 12 Days of Gluten-Free Christmas Cookies, being hosted by Maggie of She Let Them Eat Cake!  So far, there have been some tantalizing toe tapping delights: Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free’s Pistachio-Cranberry Biscotti I shared a recipe for Dairy-Free Fudge Gluten-Free Life With Jen’s Chocolate Peppermint Wafer Cookies The Mommy […]
