Gazpacho is chilled tomato-based soup with lots of veggies and a bit of a spicy kick is just right. For my kids, I explained it was “salsa soup”, which interested them. The adults loved it, and all the kids enjoyed it, too.
On a hot summer day, a cool bowl of gazpacho [...]
One of my friends on Facebook posted her variation of the Chewy Chocolate Raspberry Cookies in Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook. This is my adaptation of her adaptation.
I’ve now made this with 3 types of preserves – Lingonberry, blueberry, and raspberry (a special sneaky batch while the berry-allergic child was out of [...]
I was making a chocolate bundt cake for my middle daughter’s 9th birthday when I ran out of cocoa powder. I wanted to make an icing-type frosting, and modified it to include chocolate chips rather than cocoa. It turned into this delicious fudgy frosting. All three girls (and the other tasters) agreed [...]
There is nothing quite like the smell of a freshly baked apple pie – it brings back wonderful childhood memories of moms and grandmothers baking. If you’ve been living gluten-free, pies can seem unattainable. However, this is an easy and wonderful pie that is allergy-friendly and delicious. Show someone you love them [...]
If you don’t need to make the full 6 pie crust recipe, this version makes a top crust, bottom crust, and a spare crust to freeze for later.
This is a delicious gfcf, gluten free, family-friendly recipe! It is also (if you double check ingredients!) a wheat free, dairy free, soy free, could be [...]
This recipe is inspired by a Pennsylvania Dutch mystery by Tamar Myers I read a while ago, and have since returned to the library. It’s further inspired by several recipes I found online that weren’t quite what I remembered. It’s slightly sweet and slightly tangy, and using red/purple cabbage makes it look beautiful. [...]
I was recently at Starbucks, and when you don’t drink coffee or caffeinated tea, AND can’t have milk, there’s not a lot of choices. I was in the mood for something warm, though, and managed to spot the “Vanilla Rooibos Latte”. Since Starbucks has soymilk, I had it made that way. Yum! [...]
I’ve wanted to make one of these recipes for ages, and I finally decided to try it. This was a huge, huge hit! It is basically a sugar-cookie-type crust, with various chocolate toppings. You could make it with jam and fruit on top, but we were in a chocolate mood!
This is a [...]
yummmm…. We love creamy, chocolately pudding!
This is a delicious gfcf, gluten free, family-friendly recipe! It is also (if you double check ingredients!) a wheat free, dairy free, soy free, egg free, tree nut free, peanut free, fish free, shellfish free, corn free, top 8 allergen free, and vegan/vegetarian recipe.
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
This is free of the top 8 allergens, so it is unlikely to be too much for a baby’s first birthday. If your child hasn’t yet had many spices, you can leave out the nutmeg & cinnamon, but it tastes great like this.
This recipe really works best as cupcakes, and since little kids [...]
