Italian Seasoned Almond Ricotta Cheeze (Vegan)


Several months ago, I posted a very flavorful recipe for Seasoned Almond Ricotta Cheeze which was inspired by Heidi from Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom and Carrie from Ginger Lemon Girl.  This cheeze is still a favorite in my household, although I have taken time to tweak and refine this recipe to match a number […]

Red White and Blue Sorbet Sundae


It’s hot.  I mean, really really hot.  Yes, I am fully, painfully aware that this is summer, and summer is our warmest season…but seriously.  It’s hot. In the past few months (not weeks, months) my town has seen just a handful of days below 100+ degrees.  We have had absolutely no rain in the better […]

Blueberry Sorbet (Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan)


Blueberries.  These beautiful tiny treats surely pack a punch!  In one cup of raw blueberries, you will find a mere 84 calories, 4g of dietary fiber, and a great source of vitamin c, vitamin k and manganese. Blueberries are fabulous in everything from muffins to oatmeal.  Heck, blueberries are pretty darn good fresh from the […]

Celiac Awareness, Memorial Day and my fabulous Salted Cayenne Roasted Carob Cheesecake (Gluten-Free, Casein-Free, Grain-Free, Vegan)


May is a very important month for our family.  A month dedicated to Celiac Awareness, I have found many reasons to share why it is I eat the way I do, and why I participate in the blogging community the way I do, this month.  Unfortunately being the last month of school, as a teacher […]

Ahi Poke (Gluten Free, Dairy Free), Ingredient-Challenge Monday


Ahi Tuna.  While this ingredient is definitely a different approach to our Ingredient-Challenge Mondays (which generally uses a fruit or vegetable as the central focus of our challenges), Shea and I felt this highly nutritious food fit well into the ultimate goal of our challenge group: to bring variety to our table while increasing the […]

Raw, Vegan Almond Butter


Tonight, because my feature recipe is a two-part masterpiece, I wanted to take a moment and break it up a bit…partially because this first portion requires its own explanation, partially because this portion of the final two-part recipe is so fantastic, I want you to be able to find it over and over again! When […]

Sugar- Free Raw Vegan Lemon Cheesecake, Ingredient-Challenge Monday


When Shea (aka Dixie Chik Cooks) and I agreed that lemon would be the Ingredient Challenge for this week, my mind started wandering.  I love lemon.  Lemon bars, lemon meringue, mint lemon julep (sans alcohol), lemon mint cake, lemonade, strawberry lemonade, raspberry lemonade, lemony citrus shortcake cookies, mmmm strawberry lemon cupcakes…so many ways to use […]

Vegan Basil Pesto with Kale


There are few things in life better than a fresh bowl of pasta swirled with rich, creamy pesto.  The beautiful green hue, tender chunks of ground pine nuts, hints of basil and garlic blended with creamy parmesan; simply blissful. Recently, when faced with exquisite bundles of basil permeating my kitchen, I knew there must be […]

Rainbow Smoothie


I haven’t done a blog in over a week.  After the busy holiday schedule where I was posting 2-3 times a week, this seems like a big lull.  Having lost my grandfather the night of my last post, frankly, I just wasn’t up for another post last week.  The service was beautiful and it was […]

Ingredient-Challenge Monday, Vegan Garlic Kale Chips


I love leafy greens.  Seriously.  Spinach, Mustard, Turnip, Kale…love love love!  My garden was loaded with greens this year and my only wish is that we had more to enjoy!  It surprises and somewhat saddens me that many people look at greens and freeze up; clueless as to how to add these striking gems to […]
