Rotisserie Chicken & Leek Homemade Pizza

This past week, my local coop offered leeks in their produce basket. I love trying new things and while I had tried leeks before, I really wanted a new recipe. Lately, I've had a pizza craving. I'm gluten free and try to avoid dairy too, so my pizza experience has been very different than the average person I guess. Lately, I have really been playing around with homemade pizza and decided to try out a leek topping. I'm also a big fan of rotisserie chicken and happened to have some of that … [Read more...]

Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

Last week, I spotted a great deal on strawberries at Sam's Club. I picked up a ton of them and after getting them home it dawned on me that there was no way for me to eat that many before they went bad.Then, the idea of a strawberry pie hit me which was immediately followed by the "ugh, I'm gluten free and can't have pie crust" thought. My sister told me about the new Mi-Del Gluten Free Pie Crusts and I ran to the store to pick one up.  There are two choices, ginger snap or chocolate snap, … [Read more...]

Dairy Free & Gluten Free Blackberry Butter

I've mentioned before that I dealt with a lot of stomach issues this past year, it took quite a bit but eventually I realized I had a serious intolerance to gluten. My oldest son has life threatening food allergies so we know this path well but that doesn't mean it wasn't a HUGE adjustment. Of course, I did lose nearly 40 pounds so it's not all bad. In saying that, I spend a lot of time cooking now and trying out new things, this Blackberry Butter was one of them. I used Earth Balance … [Read more...]

Divvies Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Since it's summertime again, we have returned to the library to start our book reading marathon. While searching for books for the kids, I came across Divvies Bakery Cookbook.  I'll admit, I was skeptical. First, the book has very few pictures. Second, most of these books turn out to be the same-a few good recipes mixed it with some mediocre recipes and that's about it. My son noticed the cupcakes on the cover and asked if we could try it. "Just give it a try," he said. So, I … [Read more...]

Easy Zucchini Pasta

When I went gluten free, I was completely depressed over the loss of pasta. I mean, seriously. I could eat pasta all day. ALL DAY. I'll also admit, I'm not a fan of the gluten free versions of pasta either so that just didn't do it for me. Because of the abundance of allergies and intolerances I'm dealing with, I have a pretty strict diet of chicken, fruit and veggies. That's it. Ok, so I do have the occasional allergy free cookie but other than that, I'm on a strict diet. My body is used to … [Read more...]

Allergy Friendly Cinnamon Banana Bread

I am on a bread kick. Let's just say, I'm craving my old wheat filled bread and really have been searching for bread goodness without the gluten.
