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 […]

June 2013 Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten-Free Event Roundup!

For many of us, the month of June brings about final school days, warmer weather, the need and desire to travel abroad. When faced with dietary restrictions, chosen or otherwise, challenges can be averted with a little planning and innovation. Throughout June, several of my favorite bloggers shared their tips and delicious recipes to help […]

Coconut Flour Country Biscuits

Biscuits are one of those cherished southern foods my grandfather was an expert at. Learning how to make these dairy-free proved to be a mild challenge…making them gluten-free?  Difficult to say the least. My largest challenge came after discovering that I am sensitive to nuts. Over the last several years I have played with dozens […]

Pomegranate Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Just over one month ago, I gladly shared the secret that got my children to eat brussel sprouts. These lemon-infused brussels made it easy to deceive my children into trying more than just one bite and helped them discover that they like brussels. Only, I don’t like deceiving my children. And while these brussels defy […]

Autoimmune-Friendly Paleo Apple Sausage

To my readers on Facebook who were expecting this recipe earlier today, my apologies. An impromptu date with my husband took priority, although I am excited to be able to get this recipe to you tonight. I first created this sausage back when I did my first Whole30 and needed something that was quick yet […]

Sweet Potato Hasselbeck Potatoes

If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, undoubtedly you have seen some of the photos of the lovely meals my family and I have been enjoying recently. Funny thing? In addition to our usual grain-free and dairy-free fare; every meal I have made and every meal I have photographed over the last five […]

Paleo Garlic Cheese Biscuits

A few weeks ago, my friend Shirley Braden from Gluten-Free Easily posted her recipe for Garlic Cheese Biscuits. When she shared the link over on Facebook, I commented on how amazing her biscuits looked to which she said: “Sunny, I’m looking for you to make a grain-free version. I haven’t gotten to that yet, but […]

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 […]

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 […]
