Dairy Free Hot Fudge Sauce Without Corn Syrup

When I set out to make an ice cream cake for my son's birthday this year, I knew it wasn't complete without thick, gooey chocolate running down the sides! As is often the case, I couldn't find a recipe that fit our restrictions. There are several recipes for dairy free chocolate sauce but they all had chocolate chips in them or corn syrup. So I set out to make my own recipe and it came out perfectly! ...

It's a fun, easy project to grow sprouts at home. It will save you money and add a delicious crunch to any meal, not to mention they are nutritious power-houses!    Here in Idaho, the winter is winding down, and we are entering spring - a season that is also known as the starvation season.

Through the winter we eat our long storing foods and get lots...

Fresh cherry syrup for gluten free pancakes

Cherry Syrup for Gluten Free Pancakes

I get asked all of the time what I do with tart cherries. Honestly, I will happily warm them up with a little sugar and eat a whole bowl full of them, but I try not to be so indulgent. The bulk of our cherries get tossed into fruit smoothies, but tart cherry syrup over gluten-free pancakes is for sure the family-favorite! https://youtu.be/d9auKcdvCmI You can make this from frozen or canned cherries, sweet cherries, or my favorite fresh, tart cherries. Fresh cherries need pitted before you do anything with them. My favorite method for tender, tart cherries is an open paper clip. I learned this from my friend Laurie at Common Sense Homestead and have used it ever since. Cherry Syrup Recipe Once the cherries are pitted the process is really fast and easy...

I would rather engineer a recipe to work with whole food flours than engineer my flour to work with an existing recipe. Why not use gums? Xanthan gum...

Gluten and dairy free peanut butter cookies that are crisp, buttery and soft in the center. Think it's too much to ask? Using Melanie's Gluten Free Flour Blend makes it possible!     Why I write gluten and dairy free recipes Giving up gluten and dairy was hard but a no-brainer. I was so desperate to find health that I would do almost anything to be able to run around with my kids and be part of life again. We brought our carrot sticks and cucumber spears to many events and didn’t mind standing out because we were just grateful to be able to leave the house.   Fast forward 7 years and I have gained new health with each passing year. We still love our veggies and the food that nourishes our bodies but it...

Gluten and Dairy Free Brownies

Brownies so Good They Can’t be Gluten and Dairy Free Brownies!

Rich, fudgy, smooth, silky and moist, that is how I describe a good brownie, but not how you often hear gluten and dairy free brownies described.   If you have ever baked with gluten free flours you know that it is easy to end up with a tough, dense, crumbly brick. Not this time! Proudly bring these brownies to any event and people will beg for the recipe!     This recipe, like most of my baking recipes has been years in the making. I used to make Tollhouse brownies and wanted something comparable. Failed attempts have been everything from dry bricks to sticky soup that hardened in the bottom of the pan and took days to clean out. My kids are sweet and will eat most of my flops but I can tell by...

Family helping each other

Jesse’s Healing Journey – How Gluten Free Foods and Holistic Medicine Saved His Life

Early October 2017 was sunny and beautiful, a perfect time to finish fall clean-up chores as we headed towards winter. Jesse was weed whacking and the kids teamed up raking leaves and cleaning up debris.     I was in the kitchen putting the finishing touches on my pie crust recipe when Aidan came bursting through the door. My heart stopped, the blood drained from my face as he shouted “Dad is on the ground and can’t get up!” My mind raced. Was he alive, did he have a heart-attack, maybe a stroke?   Flying out of the house I shouted over and over, hoping he could answer back. I heard a faint, “I am over here.” Thank God, he could talk! As I rounded the corner I could see him on all fours struggling...

vegan mayonnaise

Vegan Mayonnaise Your Family will Crave

Vegan mayonnaise got you down? It is expensive from the grocery store and doesn't compare in flavor to fresh, homemade mayonnaise. Many brands contain soy which is a common allergen. Avocado mayonnaise is egg free, diary free, soy free and nut free.   Do you miss rich, silky delicious mayonnaise? There is nothing like tomato juice mingling with mayo in a veggie wrap. It is the ingredient that pulls a dish together and adds a creamy mouth-feel. Sometimes you don't realize how much you enjoy foods until you can't (choose not to) eat them anymore.     Our family has eliminated eggs because of allergies. Healing from food allergies is a journey. There are times that your body tolerates something and then decides it has had enough and you will need to eliminate that food...
