Perfectly Sweet Fruit Roll-Ups


Growing up as a child of the 80’s, fruit roll-ups were one of those quintessential items.  I mean, what was lunch without a vivid green and blue, sugary sweet roll of fruity deliciousness? And fruit roll-ups are made with fruit so they are good for you, right? Riiiiight. When the key ingredients include corn syrup, […]

Whipped Coconut Strawberry Cake (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Paleo Friendly)


February is a big month in our home.  Birthdays, anniversary and more… With all of the hustle and bustle, school and work schedules, it is a wonder we manage to get anything done.

Red Velvet Truffles (Allergy-Free, Sugar-Free, Raw, Vegan)


A short while back I was contacted by Cara, the mastermind behind Fork and Beans, a lovely Gluten-Free and Vegan that I have fallen absolutely in love with, regarding her Valentine’s Day Bake-Off. Given that many of my recipes, especially my dessert recipes, are naturally vegan…this contest seemed right up my alley.   Early on […]

‘Tis the seasons of surprises.   Imagine how tickled I was to receive a package from Ten Speed Press with a new cookbook just before Christmas! Denise Jardine’s The Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Kitchen is everything this lovely cover cracks it up to be…   I mean, seriously, what screams gluten and dairy more than pizza?  […]

Snowball Cookies (Grain-free, Dairy-Free, Vegan)


Christmas in our home means warm ovens and full bellies.  Two years into a gluten-free lifestyle, it seems as if I will never quite catch up with the memories this season brings. Recently, I shared my treasured Chocolate Pecan “Toll House” Pie; previously I have shared newly “tweaked” versions of dairy-free fudge, eggnog, and all sorts […]

Raw, Vegan, Sugar-Free Red Velvet Fudge


When Food Network first offered up their Fall Fest calendar, there were a number of ingredients that I was excited to work with…then there were a few that made me think: “What on earth am I going to do with those?” This is one of those weeks. You see, I don’t normally work with beets. […]

Easy as Pie (Crust) v2


I have a confession to make… My Easy as Pie (Crust), no matter how great, is not my favorite recipe. The flavor is spot-on. And for tarts or other pre-cooked pie crust needs, it really is a fantastic choice… But when it comes to bake-in-the-shell recipes, I often struggle to keep this crust from burning. […]

Pumpkin Custard (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)


You may have not yet noticed…but I am a lover of all things pumpkin. Pumpkin dip, pumpkin with caramel, pumpkin pie….give me some pumpkin candles, pumpkin cookies and pumpkin muffins (gluten-free, dairy-free of course), and I’m a happy girl. With so many holiday events going on, I knew it was high time for me to […]
