Gluten-Free Vegan Crackers

Gluten-Free Vegan Crackers

I have the worst luck trying to find gluten-free products worthy of buying at the grocery store that truly taste good. Do you have this problem too? It’s why I make so much of my food at home and I tell you, there is something about making a food from scratch (especially a snack-type of food) that...
Cauliflower Tater Tots

Cauliflower Tater Tots

There is something about tater tots that takes me back to my childhood school days of healthy eating at the cafeteria. Nothing screams good-for-your-body more than a handful of deep-fried tots and whole milk to guzzle it down. Deep-fried Cauliflower Tater Tots? Oh now that is a different story. That’s health food folks because it has cauliflower....

Guide to Sugar and Sweeteners

The Allergen-Friendly Baking series continues and today we are discussing all things sweet. Please keep in mind that this Guide to Sugar and Sweeteners is not intended to promote the idea of any sugar being evil or even that one sugar is superior than the other–we will talk about the affect sugar has on our bodies in another post. Rather this...
Gluten-Free Vegan French Toast

Gluten-Free Vegan French Toast

 Since I just entered into this new world of homemade gluten-free vegan bread, I’m on a kick. A “do whatever recipe I can think of that incorporates bread in it” sort of kick. This means that you should be expecting lots of sandwich recipes for the days to come, by the way. Be prepared.   A very...
Gluten-Free Vegan Bread

Gluten-Free Vegan Bread

  Out of all of the baked goods I can think of, gluten-free vegan bread has been the most exhaustive on my list. In the past week I have made (and failed at) probably somewhere near 6 loaves.  Just in this past week. That doesn’t include the week before, which if added together I probably...
Allergen-Friendly Baking: Guide to Gluten-Free Flours

Allergen-Friendly Baking: Guide to Gluten-Free Flours

I remember when I first started to bake gluten-free how overwhelmed I was. I would sit there at the table with my laptop and want to cry because I was confused over what flours to buy–this site says she uses these gluten-free flours only; this site changes the list of gluten-free flours she uses in...
Vegan Meatloaf Cupcakes

Vegan Meatloaf Cupcakes

One of the tough things about finding good dinner ideas is putting together a recipe that is easy to whip up after a long day at work. Oh, and also finding a dinner that is in the shape of cupcakes. (That is a common requirement, right?) These Vegan Meatloaf Cupcakes are not only a fun party food to...
Gingerbread Donuts

Gingerbread Donuts

Gingerbread is no longer reserved to the houses and men. Though as adorable as they might be, a tower of Gingerbread Donuts is just as cute! This holiday spice is expanding and branching out to flavor all the goodies that it can and mini donuts are not excluded. I’ve been stuck in my house for the past...

Homemade Fortune Cookies

Homemade Fortune Cookies

There’s an amazing party going on over at Keepin’ It Kind where the cookies are abounding. Our gracious (and oh-so-gorgeous) hostess with the mostess, Kristy, has been parading cookies galore all over her place, enticing us to bake while we still have the energy within. Today I was invited to come on over and I thought I would bake her something...
Double Chocolate Chip Kisses Cookies

Double Chocolate Chip Kisses Cookies

Remember those Peanut Butter Chocolate Kisses Cookies you once loved making as a kid? You know, the ones that you ate more of the Kisses than actually put on the cookies itself?  And remember these homemade White Chocolate Peppermint Kisses (click on the underlined words for the link) that I made a couple of weeks...
Living Without Magazine's Special Feature

Living Without Magazine’s Special Feature

Living Without Magazine was the first allergen-friendly magazine I started to read when I first found out about my food sensitivities. It was always a treat to find a new issue on the magazine rack at Whole Foods–I would gobble up all of the information inside while feeling relieved that there was always a solution to my...
