Handcrafted Dairy/Casein-Free Chewy Caramels

I am super excited about this recipe for gluten-free, dairy/casein-free caramels because I have tried it 3 times using different substitute ingredients and each one produced a buttery, chewy caramel candy…perfect for dipping apples, making homemade candy treats, you name it.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free “Toll House” 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

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). 😉 When my husband […]

This recipe in particular caught my eye as […]
