Creamy Pumpkin Fruit Dip

With less than a week before All Hallows’ Eve, stores are brimming with orange globes waiting to be carved into some magical piece of artistry. When it comes to pumpkins though, why limit yourself to the simple orange, jack-o-lantern variety? Beautiful yellows, greens and white await. And not only are these lovely additions perfect for […]

Guest Post for Dixie Chik Cooks…Sugar-Free Raw Vegan Pumpkin Pie in a Jar

When my friend Shea asked if I would be interested in doing a guest-post on her site, I was extremely honored and a bit intimidated. Anyone who followed our Ingredient Challenge Monday posts knows that, because of medical reasons, I live a gluten-free and dairy-free lifestyle, and Shea does not. So how am I to […]

Healthy Lunchbox–Garlic Tomato Basil & Pesto Bruchetta (Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

When preparing school lunches for children with allergies or food sensitivities, most moms (myself included) stay focused on keeping the food we send with our children as “normal” looking as possible.

Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger, Elana Amsterdam @ Elana’s Pantry

It could be said that every day is Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger in my home. As a relatively recently diagnosed celiac (almost 2 years), there are reflections and inspirations derived from various bloggers in most everything I make. I still consider myself relatively new to the gluten-free world and have no doubt that I am […]

Vegan Avocado Pistachio Pudding, Ingredient-Challenge Monday Recipe

I spent this past week several hours away from home in work related training; away from my children, husband, phone and computer.  On Wednesday, in a panic, I realized we were approaching a challenge week and hadn’t even picked an ingredient! Thankfully, I was able to reach my Ingredient-Challenge Monday partner, Shea who had something […]

Easy Vegan Ranch Dressing

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 […]
