Confessions of a busy mom (and one really great dairy-free buttercream frosting recipe)

buttercream frosting

  I have a confession. Something that has sat on my shoulders for some time. No matter how much I want to, no matter how hard I try… I cannot always make things from scratch. I mean, I really want to be that mom that has her business, writes her blog (or two), is at […]

With Easter around the corner, my family is preparing for the biggest celebration yet. With that comes the desire to provide somewhat ‘normal’ treats without having to break the bank to provide safe treats for everyone and without having to unnecessarily risk harmful exposure to allergens. Recently, I came across a picture of some tantalizing […]

Healthy Lunchbox 2014: Janet from The Taste Space

Last year, Janet from The Taste Space shared with us a luscious Salad in a Jar. Her Topaz Dragon Ginger Dressing is one of my all-time favorite salad dressing solutions. As an opening recipe to this year’s Healthy Lunchbox series, this Quinoa Protein Bowl is an excellent choice for those who is meat-free or simply enjoys an […]

Salted Chili Lime Watermelon Popsicles

Having spent a vast majority of my life split between Southern California and Texas, there is no doubt that my food is heavily influenced by the Mexican culture. When I was pregnant with my oldest biological son, I craved Mexican candy and chili spiced fruits most. These popsicles are a healthy throw back to those […]

This dip is a twist on my Easy Vegan Ranch Dressing. A little less coconut cream and a few drops of essential oil make a world of difference in flavor and texture.

The calendar tells us that autumn has arrived! The weather where you live may or may not agree with that. While we enjoyed temperatures down in the 70’s and 80’s last week (prefect West Texas autumn temperatures), this week we are back in the mid to high 90’s. Meh.  That’s West Texas craziness for you. […]

Sugar-Free Avocado Fudgesicles

006

I believe the best way to sabotage something like an elimination diet, especially one that you must be on for health reasons, is to forbid yourself the ability to enjoy a treat every now and then. Especially when you are 9. The process of eliminating Candida has not only brought my daughter and I to a […]

Roasted Garlic Baba Ghanouj

015

Baba Ghanouj (Baba Ghanoush) is a naturally gluten-free, dairy-free Middle Eastern dish that is typically served with pita bread and/or vegetables. In our battle against Candida, I have found that dips and sauces have become more important to our daily routine. First, kids love to dip their food. Last night we had roasted cod fish, […]

When I started this website, I set out to show the world that no matter how challenging the food restriction, there is a way to still enjoy what you have to eat. Heck, I don’t want you to enjoy your food; I want you to love your food! My second youngest daughter, at just 9 […]
