Gluten-Free Vegan French Onion Dip, Football Party Food (and a few giveaway winners)

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Vegan French Onion Dip

Since going dairy-free earlier this year there have been few things I actually miss (I’m not vegan but we don’t eat dairy and my son is allergic to eggs).  Which is really quite surprising to me seeing that it wasn’t too long ago that I could put back nearly a gallon of milk a day.  If […]

Crunchy Cookie Family Shot

I was the recent recipient of 4 complimentary packages of Enjoy Life Foods New Crunchy Cookies and while I did not personally sample them (I avoid all grains and cane sugar), my guys had a lot of fun “working” on my behalf…it’s a tough job, ya know! I really like Enjoy Life Foods, they are […]

Egg-Free King Arthur GF Bread1

Of all the many successful ingredient tweaks I’ve made over the years, this is one I am especially proud of, an egg-free version of King Arthur Flour’s Gluten Free Bread Mix. While I no longer buy very many gluten-free prepackaged products, this bread mix is one occasional exception I will make for my kiddos (even […]

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 […]

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 […]

Raw Sweet Potato Chips

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. […]

Fluffy Buckwheat Pancakes, Chia Egg Replacer & Corn-Free Baking Powder

Modified Elimination Diet Pancakes

It doesn’t matter how you eat on a regular basis, one bite into one of these bad boys and I promise, you will be asking for more. I think these are without a doubt the best gluten-free pancakes I’ve made in the past 5 years and the most devilishly satisfying aspect of all? The pancakes […]

Egg-Free Mayo1

Homemade corn-free, egg-free, soy-free mayonnaise.  It may not seem like a big deal to some, but for this food allergic foodie…it was nothing short of a Christmas miracle! Having this little gem of a recipe allowed me to make a corn-free, dairy/casein-free, egg-free and soy-free Ranch dressing on Christmas day to go along with my […]

“The No Biggie Bunch” Book Review and Giveaway!!

Recently, while I was “tweeting” (on Twitter) about Sam going through some social “celiac growing pains,” I got a tweet back from @NoBiggieBunch about a book series for children called “The No Biggie Bunch.” Intrigued, I went to the website and checked it out. I got excited because it appeared as though the book series […]
