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 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, […]

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Oatmeal

We do not eat gluten-free oatmeal very often, in fact it has probably been at least 3 months since the last time I made it.  I take precautions because there is still some uncertainty about them (you can read more about this on the Celiac Sprue Association website), so I try to diversify my risk […]

Dye-Free Lego Cupcakes and a Yummy Earth Lollipop Giveaway

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 […]

Dye-Free Star Wars Lego Birthday Cake (and a Giveaway Winner)

Dye-Free Star Wars Lego Cake2

Have you ever tried to make a Lego birthday cake without gluten, dairy, eggs, soy and artificial colorings? Let’s just say it’s challenging.  The gluten, dairy, soy and artificial colorings are actually a breeze to replace, but eggs are an entirely different matter, they play a very important part in baking! I made 17 different […]

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 […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free “Hostess” Cupcakes

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Hostess Cupcakes

Homemade Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free”Hostess” Cupcakes, why did it take me so long to try this?  I guess I forgot that “Fresh, Wholesome Hostess and Kids Go Together!” Did you notice the part about being fresh and wholesome?  I won’t comment on the “wholesome” aspects because I think we can all agree that we know that statement […]

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free Soy-Free French Toast Sticks

goosberrypatch

Disclaimer: The actual French Toast that you see in the picture is NOT dairy-free and egg-free.  I began this impromptu project late in the evening and I was too tired to make up some homemade dairy-free pancake mix and bake a fresh loaf of vegan bread (especially since I have never made it before)…but the […]

A New Twist on the Plain Ole Lunchbox Sandwich: Spring Rolls (and Vegan Pumpkin Dip)

Gluten Free Spring Rolls

This post is linked to September’s edition of  “Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten Free!” which is being hosted by Ali over at The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen.  Ali chose the theme: Ideas for Packing a Healthy School Lunch, yea!!!  I am really excited to see all of the fantastic ideas that will certainly come of […]

Amy’s Kitchen Gluten Free Burrito Review

1008_new_burritos

I made an impromptu stop at my favorite local co-op today (La Montanita on Rio Grande Blvd. for my fellow ABQ. peeps) and I hit the jackpot!  I have been looking EVERYWHERE for Amy’s new gluten-free burritos and today was the big day!  I only found the non-dairy version, but that was just fine by […]
