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

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 […]

Merry Christmas!

It’s a wonderful life!   So much more than the title of my favorite holiday movie, this phrase is a belief, the foundation of my daily thoughts and actions. Life isn’t always easy; rarely does it follow a plan. Still, even in the worst of struggles, the richest person is the one who finds themselves […]

Lemon Infused Brussels

There is no doubt that I love my greens. Kale, spinach, arugula and more! There is scarcely a green that my family won’t eat. That is, unless you are a brussel sprout. It wasn’t until going gluten-free that I learned to love brussel sprouts. Before then I gagged at the thought. No matter how they […]

Where I’ve Been and a Christmas Giveaway for you!

I’ve been a bad blogger lately. Life has gotten in the way. I have been exhausted and needing to spend my attention elsewhere and so, my blog has had to take an unannounced break. Even with this my followers continue to grow. For that, I owe each and every one of you a tremendous amount […]

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

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)

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 […]
