Coconut Mango Popsicles

  Who doesn’t love Popsicles on a hot day? These are my 3 year old’s favorite treat right now. I started making these when I was working with kids at a summer camp. Then I got a Norpro Ice Pop Maker and now I make a batch at home every week. Sometimes I make my […]

Dairy-Free Spinach & Mushroom Quiche

  Here’s a super easy recipe for a dairy-free quiche that is perfect for a holiday brunch. In fact, I was planning to take it to a pot-luck brunch this past Sunday but my teething 8-month-old kept me up all night and we didn’t make it to the brunch. The upside was that meant more […]

Comfort Foods For Morning Sickness

There you have it, the reason I haven’t been writing much lately, I am 15 weeks pregnant.  Now that I am at the beginning of my second trimester, I have a little bit more energy and an appetite. But until now, I have not wanted to do anything other than sleep, and the last thing […]

Favorite Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free Holiday Recipes

  Well the holidays are almost here again, I can’t wait to bring out some of the old favorite recipes, and try some new ones!  Usually I write about my holiday cooking after the fact, so I thought it would be a good idea to post all my past successful recipes here in one place […]

Family Visits: Gluten, Dairy, And Sugar-Free

  It’s that time of year again – summer barbecues, family vacations, and my annual visit to my parents in rural Minnesota.  I grew up on a farm in a tiny little German town of about 800 people, surrounded by cornfields as far as the eye can see.  It’s very peaceful but I’m always a […]

Orange-Mango Sorbet

  This week I got a new toy – a brand new Cuisinart ice cream & sorbet maker!  I’ve been seeing all these recipes on other people’s blogs for various sorbets and dairy-free ice creams made from coconut milk or nut milk and I can’t wait to try them all.  Today my first attempt was […]

Vegan Date Rice Pudding

  One thing my mother used to make very well was old-fashioned Swedish rice pudding.  It was a favorite treat that I looked forward to around the holidays.  Of course, it was loaded with milk and cream and sugar, so I gave up on that idea years ago.  Until my mother came to visit last […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pie

  Since we are going out of town for Thanksgiving, I decided to make my pumpkin pie a week early.  I have been making this pie for three years in a row now, since it is the best-tasting gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free pumpkin pie recipe I have found.  I’ve served it to family members who are unable […]

Stuffed Green Peppers

  My diet as a child left much to be desired.  I grew up in the Midwest in a little German town, and needless to say, meat and potatoes were the basic staple of our diet.   My mother’s pot roasts (or any meat she prepared for that matter) were always dry and over-cooked, probably because […]

Quinoa-Cornmeal Pancakes

Quinoa-Cornmeal Pancakes Another pancake recipe!  One can never have too many gluten-free pancake recipes.  This one I have adapted from the recipe on the bag of Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flour.  I use quinoa flakes instead of oats (which can contain traces of wheat and therefore gluten), and substitute soy milk or rice milk for the […]
