How to Make Dairy/Casein-Free, Soy-Free and Corn-Free Butter

How to make dairy-free, Soy-free, corn-free, vegan butter

A couple weeks ago I struck gold when I found a recipe for homemade vegan butter on veganbaking.net.  The recipe’s creator, Mattie, is brilliance personified.  So brilliant in fact, I think he deserves a Nobel prize (make that a moobel prize).  In typical fashion, I had my unsuspecting taste testers try the butter (without telling […]

The 2011 Gluten and Allergy Free Halloween Candy Lists are here! My friend Alison from Sure Foods Living works extremely hard every year to put together these comprehensive candy lists for those of us in the gluten-free and food allergy community.  I am so deeply appreciative to Alison for her amazing dedication and hard work, […]

Menu Plan – Week of October 3

Can you believe it’s already October?  Seriously, where did the time go? I’ve always heard people say that the older you get, the faster time flies by.  Is that physical age or mental age?  Because I’ve been trying very hard to stay 16 mentally (I’ve recently added hot pink to my repertoire of hair colors) […]

Freedom Foods Tropic O’s Cereal (a.k.a. Gluten, Allergen and Synthetic Dye Free “Fruit Loops”) with a Giveaway!

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Soy-Free, Dye-Free Fruit Loops

Gluten and allergen free moms, REJOICE!  The day has finally arrived that our kiddos can make the dreaded Fruit Loop necklace along side their classmates and no longer feel left out! It was precisely the above situation that led me to Freedom Foods in the land down under a couple weeks ago.  When Luke and […]

Menu Plan – Week of August 29

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 […]

Gluten Free and Allergy Free Art Supply List

Art_Class_Supplies

I can not stress the importance of gluten-free art supplies enough, especially for the preschool set.  Little ones are notorious for putting anything that is not intended to be eaten straight into their mouth (see exhibit A, below). And don’t think you’re off the hook if you have older children. Kids are funny little people, much […]

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?? […]

Weekly Menu Plan – Week of June 27

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 […]

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 […]
