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 […]

Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Egg-Free Gingerbread House

Gluten-Free Vegan Gingerbread House

Today’s guest post is by my better half, the man “behind the curtain” in this Glutadoodle Oz of ours.  Without Mike’s love and support, I never would have been able to go on this 18 month journey of self discovery and seeking out the answers to our family’s health issues.  Little did he know 9 […]

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 […]

Vegan Cashew Cream Cheese, Vitamixed

Cashew Cream Cheese

I am feeling pretty darn excited about this homemade vegan cashew cream cheese I recently made, thanks to the amazing Carrie over at Ginger Lemon Girl!  Seriously, who’da thunk it?? Sure, vegans have known about the amazing powers of nuts for years, but, I am not a vegan.  I’m not even dairy-free (yet), so up […]

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 […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Sopaipillas

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Sopapillas4

Gluten-Free Sopaipillas.  Fluffy “pillows” of fried dough, drizzled with sweet honey…oh, how I never thought this day would come!! Why is this such a big deal to me, you ask?  Well, I live in New Mexico, the birthplace of sopaipillas and they are as commonplace in New Mexican restaurants as bread baskets are in Italian […]

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 […]

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 […]
