Ranch Dressing (Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Corn-Free, Nut-Free and Soy-Free)

Ranch-Dressing-Dairy-Free-Egg-Free-Corn-Free-Nut-Free-and-Soy-Free

Ranch Dressing Take 2. Last January I shared my first attempt at a dairy-free, corn-free, egg-free and soy-free Ranch dressing and while it’s very good, there are two problems with the recipe. 1). It contains cashews so it’s no good for my friends out there with tree nut allergies. 2). It’s entirely too involved of […]

Knee Slappin’ Good Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins*

I have never had a better blueberry muffin in my life.  Not with dairy, not with eggs and certainly not with gluten. Now, the fact that I was on the modified elimination diet when I made them may have had a teeny tiny influence on my lust for these beauties, but I really don’t think […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]
