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 […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free “Toll House” Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I realize you might be wondering why the heck I am posting a chocolate chip cookie recipe this close to Thanksgiving. Most people close to me in my “real” life are most likely thinking, “Oh, there goes Heidi again, off on an ADD tangent…does she NOT REALIZE what today’s date it is?  Where’s the $&@#! […]

Gluten-Free Chicken Marsala and Dairy-Free Pasta Alfredo

Gluten-Free Chicken Marsala with Dairy-Free Pasta Alfredo

First thing first.  “Alfredo” is probably not the right word for this sauce, at least not in a technical sense because it lacks one of the most important components of a true Alfredo sauce…Parmesan cheese (shhh…it also lacks the butter and heavy cream, but I won’t tell if you won’t tell). When my husband and […]

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, […]

Yummy Earth Lego Candy

I have a little secret to share with you.  I am a bonafide silicone ice cube tray-aholic! I have so many of these brilliant little gadgets that I am running out of places to store them.  I should probably look into renting a storage unit for them…although, I think my husband would shove me in […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Pop Tarts

Gluten Free Pop Tart1

Gluten-Free Pop Tarts, I still can’t believe it (and nevermind the goldfish, it’s a bonafide illness of mine)! I have attempted homemade gluten-free pop tarts many times over the years using various recipes that call for pie crust.  While the end results were always tasty, they were not the Pop Tarts™ I remember from my […]
