I Hate Food Intolerances

I’m going to say something that will probably really raise the hackles of Food Allergy Mama’s everywhere: in a straight comparison, I love food allergies and I hate food intolerances.  Of course I’d rather not deal with ANY of them, but let’s face it: allergies are easy in comparison. This … Continue reading

Sorta Horchata (Made with Quinoa Milk)

After making quinoa milk a couple weeks ago, I heard from a lady who said she makes her own quinoa milk and adds some spices to it to make a drink that “tastes a lot like Horchata”. To which I could only think, “Hor-what-a?” So I went to Google to … Continue reading

French Toast – Vegan & Gluten-Free (and Delicious!)

I just love this recipe. It’s quick and easy to make, and gives me a new breakfast option for Jed. Or dinner. Either way. (You know “breakfast for dinner” is always a winner!) French toast was always a favorite of mine, and I sorely missed it when we first had … Continue reading

Hot Cocoa – Rock the Universe Version

One month ago today I shared the first of my hot cocoa concoctions: Instant, Dairy and Fructose Free Hot Cocoa! In that post, I mentioned a “rock the universe” hot cocoa that we’d used, but had to shelve because coconut was the main component. Since Jed has Fructose Malabsorption, coconut … 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

Cinnamon Seasoned “Nuts” – Allergy Free!

Before Halloween, I was looking around for treat recipes for Jed. Flipping through Living Without magazine, I was intrigued by one of their Halloween recipes: Sweet & Spicy Cinnamon Garbanzo Beans. I never got around to making it before Halloween, but better late than never, right? So I made it … Continue reading

Crispy Butter Candy Bar

This week has been an emotionally difficult week for me, with these wretched anniversaries reminding me of our rough year. So I decided that I needed to lighten the mood and indulge in a little not unhealthy, but not really healthy treat making. After Jed’s sudden comprehension of what a … Continue reading

Beat the Heat With Popsicles

I remember playing outside in the summertime as a kid. The sun would blaze overhead and the neighborhood kids would run until we couldn’t run any more. We made up fun games (like Pine Cone War) and turned a disturbing shade of brown from being in the sun all day. … Continue reading

Focus on Fructose

Let’s take a moment to focus on fructose, shall we? I’ve had many comments about Jed’s Fructose Malabsorption, about some of the ingredients I use in my recipes, and just general fructose “confusion” about what we’re doing and why we’re doing it. So, I thought I would clarify a few … Continue reading
