Dairy-Free Creamy Mashed Potatos

With Zac actually eating FOOD now, I’ve truly become a short-order cook in my home. Breakfast, lunch and dinner I make a TED worthy meal for myself, a FructMal friendly, dairy, egg and peanut free meal for Jed, and something with quinoa and/or pork for Zac. What I’ve discovered about … Continue reading

Fructose Friendly Refried Beans

Well, I underestimated how much time and effort would be needed to complete my BIG SURPRISE PROJECT (kids, anyone?), and it’s not quite ready yet. Sigh.  Soon, I promise! In the meantime, how’d you like some refried beans? Sure, you can go to the store and buy a can (even … Continue reading

Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Just before Thanksgiving, I discovered this little gem of a recipe on Pinterest. I knew I HAD to make it for Turkey-day! Since I hadn’t ever made it before, I couldn’t share it with you before Thanksgiving, but…bookmark it for next year, folks, ’cause this one is worth adding to … Continue reading

Perfect Sandwich Bread – Gluten & Gum-Free & Vegan!

Before I talk about this AWESOME recipe, I thought I’d give you a little update. Last night, Zac had a definite FPIES reaction. No confusion; his diapers told the story quite clearly. (I’ll refrain from details, as I’m about to talk about food!) We’re not 100% sure it is the … Continue reading

Vegan Cauliflower Cheddar “Cheese” – Fructose-Friendly!

Oh. My. Word. Y’all. I’m happy dancing in my kitchen right now. Ok, so you know how I shared that awesome recipe for vegan cheese that I’d found? The one made from coconut milk? I love that recipe. Sadly, we had to retire it, thanks to Jed’s Fructose Malabsorption. He … Continue reading

Guaca-what? (Fructose-Free Guacamole)

Last night was Taco Tuesday at the Summers house, and out of nowhere, I got the idea to make guacamole. Why I thought Darrel and Jed might like guacamole, I don’t know. So far, the only way avocado has been remotely palatable to either of them is when it is … Continue reading

Fava Bean Hummus

I’ve been wanting to make a hummus recipe for Jed for quite a while now. Snack foods that appeal to a toddler are difficult to come by when restricted by Fructose Malabsorption, and hummus seemed like something I might be able to make within his dietary limitations. Sadly, I hit … Continue reading

Salmon Stuffed Mushrooms

There’s no fabulous story behind this recipe. I just got bored with the dinners I’ve been making and started throwing things together in the kitchen! It’s a bit of an interesting combination, but in the end it turned out pretty delicious. The grocery store had some gorgeous mushrooms this week, … Continue reading

Vegan Southwest Queso

Cauliflower, oh cauliflower…why did it take me so long to fall in love with you? Sometimes in the kitchen, you discover something cool that is very useful – for one  recipe. Some kitchen discoveries, however, continue to excite you with the many ways they can be reinvented. Such is the … Continue reading

Quinoa Teething Crackers

When we started trialing quinoa, I got very excited. I knew that quinoa would offer a lot of variety in Zac’s diet (and, eventually, mine), and to start with I wanted to make him his very first teething cracker. I had seen a few recipes for homemade teething biscuits before, … Continue reading
