Sweet Potato Souffle (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free, Paleo, ACD)

I love this time of the year! As summer draws to a close, fall produce intermingles with the last of the summer harvest. It is a great time to incorporate your favorite year-round vegetables in new and exciting ways. It is also the time that everyone seems to be gearing up for all things pumpkin. […]

Blogiversary, Loving What I do and an Angel Food Cake for you!

If someone had told me three years ago that more than 30,000 unique individuals would be visiting this website every month, I would have laughed. You see, when I started this site my goal was to share recipes that made my life easier.  To create food that was safe for my family and delicious to […]

Sugar-Free Avocado Fudgesicles

I believe the best way to sabotage something like an elimination diet, especially one that you must be on for health reasons, is to forbid yourself the ability to enjoy a treat every now and then. Especially when you are 9. The process of eliminating Candida has not only brought my daughter and I to a […]

Coconut Butter Cacao Nib Bars (Candida-Fighting, Paleo, Vegan, Sugar-Free, Whole30, ACD, GFCF and more!)

When I started this website, I set out to show the world that no matter how challenging the food restriction, there is a way to still enjoy what you have to eat. Heck, I don’t want you to enjoy your food; I want you to love your food! My second youngest daughter, at just 9 […]

Strawberry Topped Boston Cream Pie (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Paleo)

It might surprise you to learn that my husband and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. Nope. Never. Not once. You see, my husband has this thing against a commercially exploited day supposedly designed to tell the person you love that you love them. He believes that love is something to be expressed on a daily […]

One Minute Microwave Lava Cake (Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)

I love my friends. I love that anyone who knows me in this little town of ours automatically thinks of me when they see something labeled “gluten-free.” Because of this, I get periodic recipes e-mailed or texted to me on a regular basis and frankly, many of these turn into inspiration for future recipes or […]

Share the Love with Vegan Carrot Cake Coconut Macaroons

I have some of the greatest friends in the universe. Really. So when my beautiful friend Shea from Dixie Chik Cooks asked if I wanted to participate in the Kitchenaid’s Pass the Plate event through BeBetsy, I did not hesitate to say ‘yes!’ even before I knew exactly what it was. What I have learned […]

Vanilla Pumpkin Swirl Cake with Vanilla Palm Sugar Glaze (Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free, Paleo)

This is not my prettiest cake by any means, and I thought about remaking it in a number of different pans, but my daughter was so thrilled when she saw the final product that I decided if it was good enough for her, then it was good enough for me. So many of my projects […]

ICM July Winning Recipe: Berry Almond Crunch by Heather, the Gluten-Free Cat and Challenge-Ingredient Announcement!

I can’t believe we haven’t had an Ingredient Challenge Monday since July, but with the Healthy Lunchbox Series overlapping the 2nd Monday in both August and September, missing those months just couldn’t be helped! That being said, with Bountiful Baskets offering blueberries in bulk this summer, I enjoyed the extra time to review and re-review […]

Coconut Flour Apple Crumble (nut-free)

When Phoebe invited me to her Virtual Viewing Party and All-American Potluck, the first thing that popped into my mind was apple pie. I mean, besides hot dogs, what is more American than apple pie? Only, I am not a huge fan of apple pie. Don’t ask me why, I am not 100% certain; I […]
