Easy Vegan Ranch Dressing

107

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 […]

Ingredient-Challenge Recipe: Gazpacho

Gazpacho is a soup best served cold. In this nation-wide heat wave, this soup is a welcome change from the norm. When Shea and I agreed to use bell peppers as this week’s challenge ingredient, there were a number of recipes that came to mind. And while I hope to share my favorite grain-free stuffed […]

Cucumber, Mint and Watermelon Salad

014

I love cucumbers,which is good since (as mentioned before) , my garden is overflowing with them this year.  When Food Network presented cucumbers as the next ingredient for their Summer Fest, I was elated to have another opportunity to share one of my family’s favorite ways to eat this delectable vegetable with you.  This Cucumber, […]

Italian Seasoned Almond Ricotta Cheeze (Vegan)

012

Several months ago, I posted a very flavorful recipe for Seasoned Almond Ricotta Cheeze which was inspired by Heidi from Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom and Carrie from Ginger Lemon Girl.  This cheeze is still a favorite in my household, although I have taken time to tweak and refine this recipe to match a number […]

Red White and Blue Sorbet Sundae

031

It’s hot.  I mean, really really hot.  Yes, I am fully, painfully aware that this is summer, and summer is our warmest season…but seriously.  It’s hot. In the past few months (not weeks, months) my town has seen just a handful of days below 100+ degrees.  We have had absolutely no rain in the better […]

Blueberry Sorbet (Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan)

006

Blueberries.  These beautiful tiny treats surely pack a punch!  In one cup of raw blueberries, you will find a mere 84 calories, 4g of dietary fiber, and a great source of vitamin c, vitamin k and manganese. Blueberries are fabulous in everything from muffins to oatmeal.  Heck, blueberries are pretty darn good fresh from the […]

Ahi Poke (Gluten Free, Dairy Free), Ingredient-Challenge Monday

251

Ahi Tuna.  While this ingredient is definitely a different approach to our Ingredient-Challenge Mondays (which generally uses a fruit or vegetable as the central focus of our challenges), Shea and I felt this highly nutritious food fit well into the ultimate goal of our challenge group: to bring variety to our table while increasing the […]

Raw, Vegan Almond Butter

130

Tonight, because my feature recipe is a two-part masterpiece, I wanted to take a moment and break it up a bit…partially because this first portion requires its own explanation, partially because this portion of the final two-part recipe is so fantastic, I want you to be able to find it over and over again! When […]

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

079

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 […]

Vegan Basil Pesto with Kale

011

There are few things in life better than a fresh bowl of pasta swirled with rich, creamy pesto.  The beautiful green hue, tender chunks of ground pine nuts, hints of basil and garlic blended with creamy parmesan; simply blissful. Recently, when faced with exquisite bundles of basil permeating my kitchen, I knew there must be […]
