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 Chicken Marsala and Dairy-Free Pasta Alfredo

Gluten-Free Chicken Marsala with Dairy-Free Pasta Alfredo

First thing first.  “Alfredo” is probably not the right word for this sauce, at least not in a technical sense because it lacks one of the most important components of a true Alfredo sauce…Parmesan cheese (shhh…it also lacks the butter and heavy cream, but I won’t tell if you won’t tell).

canvas

Over the past weekend, I found myself in a social setting with several obstetricians and I thought it would be a great opportunity to talk about celiac disease.  Parties are wonderful for launching conversation about gluten sensitivity because it is pretty darn obvious that something is different when you show up with your own gluten-free […]

The Faces of Celiac Disease

Traditionally, Celiac Disease Awareness month is in October and has been since 1987.  In 2009, Canada started to promote Celiac Awareness in May, which I think is GREAT, the more, the better!   On Friday, April 30th, 2010; Zach over at Gluten Free Raleigh made a blog post announcing that North Carolina Governor, Beverly Perdue, […]

Blue Horizon Fish and Chip Bites, a Gluten-Free Vinegar Odyssey and Valuable Lessons Relearned

I have been sitting on this post for about a month now (researching one thing has led to another and yet another), so some of the information in this post is a bit outdated (the ingredients and labeling of the Blue Horizon GF Fish & Chip Bites have been changed since I first bought them). […]

Gluten-Free Easter Candy

Easter

Mike and I are trying something new this year with our boys for Easter.  We are kickin’ it old school! Not sure how popular the “Easter Bunny” will be in our house come Sunday, but I am keeping my fingers crossed!  Instead of loading their baskets with neon colored commercial candies, I am making a […]
