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 […]

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 […]

Green Eggs and Ham Quiche

My version was actually Green Eggs and Sausage, but that doesn’t have the same snazzy ring to it as Green Eggs and Ham!  The only reason I even used sausage is because that is what I had on hand for this final attempt at making a quiche (more of a breakfast casserole) for The Gluten-Free […]

Funny Oranges

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. :-D  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 […]

Steamed Artichokes with a Lemon Butter Dipping Sauce

So, a couple of weeks ago I got a recipe in my email inbox from another one of my favorite new blogs, “Snack Girl.” I LOVE Lisa’s blog and encourage you to check it out! It is not a gluten-free blog, but many of her recipes are easily adaptable to be gluten-free. She also does […]

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 […]

Rainbow Chard Sauteed with Mushooms

Rainbow Chard

Some time ago, I made a conscious decision to further transform how I eat and to expose my children to more naturally gluten-free foods, like fresh vegetables. It’s amazing how a naturally gluten-free diet is so much easier on your pocketbook! Fruits and veggies have always been a part of our diet, but probably not […]
