Dairy-Free, Paleo Friendly Cheddar Cheese (Vegan Option Noted)

087

January 1, a new year, a new you. While many people use this day to mark their new, fresh eating habits; while many of my friends have begun their sugar-detox, juicing or Whole30 plan, my next Whole30 won’t begin until this Friday. “Why?” you ask? Well, first off, Thursday is my husband’s birthday. And while […]

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

IMG_20121228_094747

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 […]

Potatoes au Gratin (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan Option Noted)

I do not eat potatoes often; my body just isn’t ready to process that many carbs. That being said, Thanksgiving only comes once a year and these cheesy, delicious slices are worth a once-a-year indulgence. One of my favorite Thanksgiving sides, I am pleased to share these with you today. May your holiday be filled […]

Paleo Green Bean Casserole

005

Growing up, my stepmother always told me she was a horrible cook. The thing is, I loved her food.  Simple meals made at home are still homemade meals. Living in the small town that we lived in, there weren’t many opportunities to run and grab take-out or fast food and so that meant that we […]

Cream of Mushroom Soup (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo, Vegan Option)

001

With the holidays upon us, there are some staples that one cannot live without this time of the year. Unfortunately, allergies, food sensitivities and auto-immune syndromes can often lead to feeling like we have to miss out on many of our favorite foods. Not so, I say! With the exception of baklava, there are few […]

Share the Love with Vegan Carrot Cake Coconut Macaroons

019

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)

20121021_212650

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 […]

Rainbow Salad

003

One day, my husband looked at me lovingly and said those five little words many of us never expect to hear: “Honey, I miss your salad.” Yes, my salad. I guess it had been a few weeks since I had made one of my nutrient-packed salads and my husband had a craving. Now if only […]
