Creamy Greek Salad Dressing (dairy-free)

Creamy Greek Salad Dressing

I love Greek salads, the salt from the creamy Feta cheese and the Kalamata olives, balanced by the pungent aroma of oregano.  Yum. My all time favorite Greek salad is the one offered at Pappadeaux, have you ever had their Greek Salad, the one with the shrimp?  My oldest son Sam and I would always […]

The BEST Mayo-Free Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad13*

At least that’s what both of my sisters said last week when I had them sample it. I first whipped up this interesting little gem of a recipe back in February, when we had just begun the modified elimination diet before going to see Dr. Vikki Petersen.  I think the hardest foods to give up […]

Homemade BBQ Sauce (corn-free)

Homemade BBQ Sauce

Photo Credit (I forgot to take a picture last week, but will update with my own photo soon) Growing up, I loved the summer time, and not for the reason you may be thinking (no school!).  I loved the hot and humid Ohio summer months for the beautiful green grass and booming maple trees that […]

Weekly Menu Plan – Week of June 13 (and a Thank You)

weeklymenuplan-small

  Like my new menu plan badge?  My very talented friend Alexa from Lexie’s Kitchen designed it for me (thanks Lexie)!  If you haven’t yet “met” Alexa, you really should stop by her blog, especially if you are on a gluten free/casein free diet.  I have made several of Lexie’s recipes over the past year […]

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 […]

Weekly Menu Plan, Rattlesnake Huntin’ (and a Giveaway!)

Rattlesnake Sign

I just love the first week of summer vacation, don’t you? No more of the hectic morning rush out the door to get to school and no more packing gluten free, allergen free lunchboxes!  Instead, I’m now quietly sipping green smoothies on the patio, listening to the birds chirp their little songs and tending to […]

Sorry I’m posting my menu plan so late, it’s been a long weekend of yard work and gardening.  I am determined to grow SOMETHING this year and break the curse of my dad’s black thumb, LOL!  Mike and I have been working hard, building raised beds around the perimeter of our yard and amending our […]

Weekly Menu Plan – Week of May 23

MenuSign

This is my boy’s final week of school before summer break and there are a lot of fun activities going on at school (all involving food of course…which means I’m going to be pooped come dinner time).  Simple and fast, yet healthy and homemade is the name of the game for my allergy-friendly dinner menu […]

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 […]

Before sharing my menu plan for the week, I would like to share a few items that I highlighted on my Facebook Page this week: There is a wonderful website called The Gluten File which is a collection of articles and research pertaining to gluten sensitivity.  I really encourage you to check it out because […]
