Momma’s Turkey

Apple Pie Cookies (Grain-Free, Vegan Option Noted)

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

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.

Candida Friendly Cucumber Salsa

My long-time readers have seen me, and thereby this website, through a number of new eating adventures…new diagnosis and many trial and errors. As you know, I have celiac. Two of my 5 children show signs of gluten-intolerance but have not tested positive for celiac. Still, maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle has benefited them greatly. Even […]
