Fried Apples (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Vegan)


It has been three weeks since my last post.  In that time, I have changed servers (which put my site down for 10 days), gotten neck deep into my new position at school and have flat-out been exhausted. Even so, I don’t like being away for so long. Thank you for being patient and sticking with […]

Vegan Avocado Pistachio Pudding, Ingredient-Challenge Monday Recipe


I spent this past week several hours away from home in work related training; away from my children, husband, phone and computer.  On Wednesday, in a panic, I realized we were approaching a challenge week and hadn’t even picked an ingredient! Thankfully, I was able to reach my Ingredient-Challenge Monday partner, Shea who had something […]

Easy Vegan Ranch Dressing


Ranch dressing.  Who doesn’t love ranch dressing?  Well, okay, maybe people who can’t have dairy…and people who don’t like preservatives and unnatural chemicals in their dressing. I happen to love the flavor of ranch dressing, but I do not like what dairy does to me, nor do I love preservatives or unnatural chemicals in my […]

Molten Lava Cake (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Grain Free, Soy Free)


This is not one of those healthy desserts that I so love.  This is one of those “I really need a chocolate fix, and not just any chocolate fix, something over the top” desserts that I indulge on just a few times a year. When my family and I took the opportunity to turn a […]

Blueberry Cobbler (Gluten-free, Dairy-Free, Grain-Free, Vegan)

This blueberry cobbler is a healthy twist on a classic dish.  […]

Celiac Awareness, Memorial Day and my fabulous Salted Cayenne Roasted Carob Cheesecake (Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Grain-Free, Vegan)


May is a very important month for our family.  A month dedicated to Celiac Awareness, I have found many reasons to share why it is I eat the way I do, and why I participate in the blogging community the way I do, this month.  Unfortunately being the last month of school, as a teacher […]

GF/CF Baked Vegan Jalapeno Poppers


Warm, spicy, crisp peppers. Hot, melted cheese.  Crunchy breaded exterior. I challenge you to find a greater appetizer than jalapeno poppers.  The cream cheeze used to fill these beauties is so great by itself, I was tempted to  just stop there and eat it up…but after my son had asked me more than a dozen […]

Vegan Nutty Butter Easter Candy


I have had the intention to make Gluten Free-Dairy Free Nut Butter cups for my kids for a while now.  With Easter quickly approaching, the television heavily laden with Reese’s commercials and the grocery aisles loaded with these smooth, creamy treats, well…it seemed about time to make my kids a treat they so readily deserve. […]

Sugar- Free Raw Vegan Lemon Cheesecake, Ingredient-Challenge Monday


When Shea (aka Dixie Chik Cooks) and I agreed that lemon would be the Ingredient Challenge for this week, my mind started wandering.  I love lemon.  Lemon bars, lemon meringue, mint lemon julep (sans alcohol), lemon mint cake, lemonade, strawberry lemonade, raspberry lemonade, lemony citrus shortcake cookies, mmmm strawberry lemon cupcakes…so many ways to use […]

Ingredient-Challenge Monday Vegan Red Velvet Whoopie Pie (Gluten Free, Diary Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Corn Free)


Ingredient-Challenge Monday Vegan Red Velvet Whoopie Pie (Gluten Free, Diary Free, Corn Free) When my Ingredient-Challenge Monday Girls came to the decision that we should do a “something red” special for Valentine’s Day, my mind immediately ran to favorite ingredients like strawberries, raspberries, even cherries.  Then, I went shopping with my husband…my gluten loving, dairy […]
