Creamy Greek Salad Dressing (dairy-free)

I love Greek salads, the salt from the creamy Feta cheese and the Kalamata olives, balanced by the pungent aroma of oregano.  Yum.

The BEST Mayo-Free Chicken Salad

Dairy-Free Basil Pesto

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pesto!  Pesto screams summer to me, or better yet, my fantasy of sitting at a seaside cafe in Genoa, Italy at sunset, holding my handsome husband’s hand while a light, salt kissed breeze strokes my face as I sip on a glass of Italy’s finest vino and […]

[…]

Homemade Beef Jerky, a Giveaway Winner…and a Revolution

Homemade Gluten-Free, Allergy-Friendly Beef Jerky.  Easy to make, challenging to photograph (in an appealing fashion anyway)! 😉 I love beef jerky, but all too often the prepackaged variety contains wheat so therefore it is off limits to me and my brood.  I’m actually kinda thankful for that because it is not only easy to make, […]

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

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 […]

Biscochitos: Gluten-Free, Dairy/Casein-Free & Egg-Free

Now, I know many people are not fans of anise, but I encourage you to give this recipe for gluten free biscochitos a try anyway, they are scrumpdillyicious.  My best friend is averse to anise and refused to try one…well, until I started calling her names that is. 😉 A funny thing happened once she […]
