Corn & Sugar-Free Homemade Ketchup

A while back I posted my homemade ketchup recipe. It’s delicious, it’s perfect, it’s wonderful…and we can no longer use it! When I first started making it, I only made it for Jed. I knew that vinegar was made from corn, but that was okay. This wasn’t for Zac. Later … Continue reading

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Quinoa Pancakes (& Fructose Friendly!)

The addition of baking soda to our diets has been wonderful  for baking. It really helps make everything I’ve ever made for Zac fluffier and better textured than they were without it. Including these gluten-free dairy-free quinoa pancakes! A while ago, I realized that the cookie recipe I make for him … Continue reading

Quinoa Roll Out Cookies

Right off the bat I will tell you that this recipe does NOT taste like manna from Heaven. Unlike the “sugar” cookies I created for Jed, these cookies taste like a dry cracker. After all, there isn’t any sweetener in them at all! But for people on a restricted diet, … Continue reading

Perfect Homemade Dry Shampoo for Brunettes

The lifestyle and duties of a Flight Attendant have changed enormously since the 1960’s. Back then, stick thin single gals (and a few fellas, too) happily catered to wealthy customers who preferred to travel in style. I hear there were some AWESOME parties, too. Nowadays, Flight Attendants are more likely … Continue reading

Zac’s Banana Muffins

A couple weeks ago I decided to try and make some sort of muffin for Zac. He’s got the basic ingredients; surely I could make something that resembled a muffin. Since we were re-trialing bananas at the time, I wanted to make a banana muffin. What I created is a … Continue reading

Popped Quinoa

So here’s a fun little recipe: Popped Quinoa. Back when I first made the Crispy Butter Candy Bars for Jed, I had the idea that puffed quinoa would be a great substitution for the puffed rice or puffed millet. If I could use puffed quinoa, then one day, those bars could … Continue reading

Cauliflower-Egg Tortilla

This has become one of Zac’s favorite recipes, and I’m pretty fond of it, as well! I never would have guessed that two simple ingredients could yield something so tasty, but it does. These are really yummy! Now, I’ve made theses several times now, always referring to different recipes online … Continue reading

Vegan Sunbutter Ice Cream

The other day, out of nowhere, Jed announced he wanted Sunbutter Ice Cream. To my knowledge, he’s never even heard  of Sunbutter Ice Cream before, so where he got this latest desire from I have no idea! (Maybe he’ll take after his Mama and be creative in the kitchen.) After … Continue reading

Quinoa Cookie

Sometimes not doing things the way you normally do leads to unexpected rewards. Like these cookies! I’ve said before that one of my time-saving kitchen tips is to cook a big pot of quinoa to leave in the fridge. Then I can simply scoop out however much I need as the … Continue reading

Banana Quinoa Pudding

For my next “simple quinoa” recipe, here’s a recent development in my kitchen: Quinoa Banana Pudding. Well, sort of. Kinda. You’ll see.  With bananas in our diet now, I thought there had to be a way to make a banana pudding for Zac. He’s past the pureed foods stage, of … Continue reading
