Dairy-Free Basil Pesto

Dairy-Free Basil Pesto

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pesto!  Pesto screams summer to me, or better yet, my fantasy of sitting at a seaside cafe in Genoa, Italy at sunset, holding my handsome husband’s hand while a light, salt kissed breeze strokes my face as I sip on a glass of Italy’s finest vino and […]

Homemade Ketchup (Corn-Free)

Corn-Free-Ketchup

I’m not sure if it’s ketchup, catsup, or any other bizarre spelling, but if you are the parent of a child under the age of 10, then you always make sure that you NEVER run out of this key ingredient.  My kids put this stuff on everything, even foods that just don’t seem to make […]

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 […]

Ranch Dressing: Corn-Free, Dairy/Casein-Free, Egg-Free and Soy-Free

DairyCasein-Free, Egg-Free, Soy-Free Ranch Dressing

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE Ranch dressing! I love it on my salads, I love it as a veggie dipping sauce (okay, the veggies are really more of a Ranch delivery vehicle), I love to dip pizza in it and…(close your eyes)…I LOVE to dip my medium-rare grass fed beef tenderloin in […]

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 […]

Eventually Instant Dairy-Free Mashed Potatoes

Eventually Instant Dairy-Free Mashed Potatoes7

I’ve been making “eventually instant” mashed potatoes for about a year now, ever since I gave up using Potato Buds.  I was never one to use boxed potatoes on a regular basis but they did come in handy when time was of the essence.  Now, I have my own convenience mashed potatoes to fall back […]
