Handcrafted Dairy/Casein-Free Chewy Caramels

Dairy-Free Caramel

I am super excited about this recipe for gluten-free, dairy/casein-free caramels because I have tried it 3 times using different substitute ingredients and each one produced a buttery, chewy caramel candy…perfect for dipping apples, making homemade candy treats, you name it. First, let me tell you how I landed on it.  I began my quest […]

Garlicky Chicken Thighs in Red Pepper Sauce

Garlicky Chicken Thighs with Red Pepper Sauce1

I recently picked up a copy of Fine Cooking Magazine, the Weeknight Dinner issue, and I have to say that it was a very wise purchase!  Most of the recipes are either naturally gluten-free (meaning no major substitutions are required), or are easily adaptable to be GF. This recipe in particular caught my eye as […]

Gluten Free Halloween

Gluten Free Halloween Punch

I pretty much flarped on Halloween this year and haven’t done nearly as much as I typically like to.  I think I have had a serious case of “spooky block,” not having artificial colorings to fall back on, LOL!  That’s okay though, I will just look back at this as my “deprogramming” year. It’s funny, […]

Dairy/Casein-Free, Egg-Free Chicken Salad

Dairy-Free Egg-Free Chicken Salad

Update 8/10/2011: I have an updated version of this chicken salad and you can find the full recipe here: The BEST Mayo-Free Chicken Salad.  There are also TWO gluten-free, egg-free and soy-free mayos on the market, Soy-Free Veganaise and one by Earth Balance, called Mindful Mayo I’ve been having some trouble in the egg-free, soy-free […]

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Oatmeal

We do not eat gluten-free oatmeal very often, in fact it has probably been at least 3 months since the last time I made it.  I take precautions because there is still some uncertainty about them (you can read more about this on the Celiac Sprue Association website), so I try to diversify my risk […]

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 […]

Gluten-Free Mozzarella Cheese Sticks and a YES! Winner

Gluten Free Cheese Sticks

Gluten-free mozzarella cheese sticks, who’da thunk it? YES! Heck, even in my former gluten-life, I could not make a cheese stick.  I could make a mean hollow tube of fried bread crumbs mind you, but somehow, the cheese always managed to escape! Has this ever happened to you?  You roll your cheese stick in bread […]

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 […]

Dill Dip with Raw Veggies

Gluten Free Dill Dip1

The past two days have been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me as I’ve been preparing to set Luke up with a safe environment at preschool.  Preschool is a dietary-restricted parent’s worst nightmare!  Gluten and food allergens are EVERYWHERE and not just in the popular processed kid fare department (have I told […]
