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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Corn-Free Light “Corn” Syrup

CF Corn Syrup6

So you may be asking why on earth am I making a post on this, especially since we do not have a corn allergy in our house. Well, I am making this post for a few reasons: 1) The documentary King Corn flipped me out. If you are interested, check out the film’s trailer below. […]

Tomato-Free Marinara Sauce

pickled beets

This is such a cool recipe! I have not made it in a few years, in fact I forgot about until I made a post and referenced a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EE). Sam used to have a playmate with EE and I got the opportunity to play around with different combinations of foods that […]
