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 […]

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 […]

Good Morning! Breakfasts without Gluten, Sugar, Eggs or Dairy (with a Giveaway)

book-goodmorning1

If you’re like my family and cannot have gluten, dairy, eggs or refined sugar then you know how challenging breakfast can be!  For the past few months we’ve been enjoying green smoothies and homemade breakfast sausage…7 days a week…and we were in need of a little change up, at least on the weekends.  So, when […]

mealplanmonday_v1

It’s going to be another crazy week for me as I prepare to leave for Chicago on Thursday to attend the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo. This will be the first time that I’ve left my brood since embarking on “Operation Leaky Gut” and I have to admit that I’m a little nervous as to […]

Raw Sweet Potato Chips

I know what you are probably thinking, “Raw sweet potato chips, Heidi?  Did your oven break?” Notice I didn’t say raw sweet potato slices.  Although, those are quite tasty too!  Allergic to carrots?  Cut raw sweet potatoes in the shape of carrot sticks and dunk in your favorite veggie dip, you just might be surprised.
