Menu Plan – Week of August 29

weeklymenuplan-small

For this week’s menu plan, I’m taking back Italian.  For the most part, I have steered clear of one of my favorite cuisines since going dairy-free (and mostly grain-free) earlier this year.  But now I’m ready to re-define my definition of Italian goodness.  With the exception of lasagna, I think most Italian recipes can taste […]

Thousand Island Dressing (Gluten-Free, Corn-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Nut-Free, Gum-Free and Refined Sugar-Free)

Dairy Free Thousand Island Dressing2

Thousand Island dressing has always been one of my favorites, a full bodied, creamy dressing with just the right amount of sweetness and tang.  The name presumably comes from the Thousand Islands, which lie between the United States and Canada, in the St. Lawrence river and there is some debate as to when and where […]

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 […]

Menu Plan – Week of July 25

Meatless Monday: Blackened Black Bean Burgers (I will use a chia egg), Zucchini Fries, Salad Tuesday: Chicken Souvlaki (instead of the yogurt, I will make a dairy free buttermilk: 1 1/2 tsp. of fresh squeezed lemon juice plus enough unsweetened (So Delicious) coconut milk to make 1/4 cup; set aside until milk curdles, about 5 […]

Weekly Menu Plan – Week of July 18

weeklymenuplan-small

I have quite a busy week ahead of me, my little one is getting ready to turn 4 (sniff) at the end of this month and I have some gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, refined sugar-free (and synthetic dye-free) Batman cupcakes to try and figure out how to make! Where’s that magic wand when I need it?? […]

Five Star Marinade, Review and Giveaway!

FiveStarNaturalMarinadeBanner

This year is quickly becoming my year of all things marinades, rubs, sauces and dressings.  Growing up, we relied on salt and condensed soup “gravy” to add flavor and moisture to our meats and veggies (which were often dry and/or mushy and therefore required something to help them go down).  Sadly, I was fine with […]

Top Shelf Premium Cocktail Mixers (and a Giveaway!)

Top Shelf Mixers

Let me first start off saying that there are some parts of my “job” as a blogger that are just down right difficult to do and the perfect examples are yesterday’s gluten free beer showdown and today’s review of Top Shelf Ultra Premium Cocktail Mixers.  Sometimes, ya just gotta take one (or two) for the […]

Weekly Menu Plan – Week of July 4th

weeklymenuplan-small

I was so busy prepping for our gluten free 4th of July party yesterday, I forgot to post my menu plan!  Well, better later than never, I say! We had a wonderful time and nothing feels better than knowing all the food at the party is 100% gluten free…no risk for cross contamination and everyone […]

Weekly Menu Plan – Week of June 27

weeklymenuplan-small

I am so happy that last week is finally over, I’m just not used to being THAT busy anymore!  Typically, we are much more laid back with our schedule, I don’t put my boys in too many activities, simply because the commute can interfere with making dinner (not to mention all the snacks that are […]
