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. Still, especially when it comes to birthdays, it is important to give each event the special attention it deserves. This year my […]

Here’s are just some of my previous ICM entries…   What’s different this go-round?   Well, like we did in the final ICM challenges from before, this time we are including […]

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 […]

Cranberry-Orange Wassail

First, let me start by saying that I truly have the best followers in the world. Due to, wellll, life, I have not blogged since the first of the year. In that time, our little town has had record-breaking snow; we have celebrated my husband’s birthday, spent time with friends who have had births to […]

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 […]

Home for the Holidays, Gluten-Free Style: Chocolate Pecan “Toll House” Pie (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Grain-Free)

There truly is no place like home for the holidays. Whether yours is as high-tech as the one featured above, or as simple and solemn as my humble abode, I have no doubt that this simple little phrase “Home for the Holidays,” conjures images and memories like none other. Shirley Braden of Gluten-Free Easily was […]

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. […]
