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

Homemade Conversation Heart Candies

Making allergy and intolerance safe, healthier versions of traditional treats for my kiddos on holidays has become somewhat of a mission for me. Last year, I finally managed to master making homemade dairy-free chocolates for Jed, which helped make Easter, Christmas, and Halloween more traditional for him. However, we recently discovered … Continue reading

Homemade Gummy Treats

About two years ago I made some gummy treats for Jed. The recipe I used was simple and delicious, and since I didn’t change a thing about it I only shared the link, not the whole recipe. We loved those gummy treats! There were only two things I wanted to … Continue reading

Fructose Friendly Sugar Cookie Roll Outs

This recipe makes me so happy. It also happens to thrill my 4 year old son, who had never experienced a “sugar” cookie roll-out in his life until I created this cookie for him. While Jed can now have goat milk, he still has to avoid eggs, wheat, sugar, and … Continue reading

Cornbread – Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Fructose Friendly!

I suspect that if you’re born in the South it is somehow genetically implanted in your DNA to have a love of cornbread. Maybe that’s an exaggeration, but it is undeniable that Southerners are fond of cornbread! Even being born and raised in the South, I’ll admit to having “cheated” on … Continue reading

Salmon Pate

Every year for Thanksgiving, my family traditionally lays out a plate of “snacks”: stuffed celery sticks, black and green olives, and pickles are always present, and sometimes other little goodies make an appearance. It’s just enough to take the edge off the hunger brought on by all those delicious cooking … Continue reading

Homemade Pumpkin Puree

You know those recipe blogs where everything is perfect, the pictures are all gorgeous, and the process of cooking is always flawless? Yeah, I’m annoyed by those blogs, too. I’m more of a Julia Child sort of cook. When you make a mistake, just fix it if you can and move … 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

Vegan Cucumber-Cauliflower Soup

Once the stomach bug left, taking with it many of Zac’s safe foods (hopefully temporarily), I found myself trying to find a way to get him to eat cauliflower and cucumber. Despite wolfing them both down with gusto when we first introduced them in trials, he has since become rather … Continue reading

2 Ingredient Cookies

…and what to do with leftover oatmeal! Since we’re trialing oats right now, and Zac has gotten used to eating cookie-like items every day, I knew there had to be a way to make oatmeal cookies for him. After all, he’s got eggs, goat milk, goat milk butter, and quinoa … Continue reading
