Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread

  My mother asked me if I could adapt her zucchini bread recipe to be gluten-free so she could make some for my niece, who recently found out she has a gluten intolerance. (Zucchini bread is a big thing in Minnesota, where my mother lives.) I kind of came up with a hybrid of her recipe and […]

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 […]

Persimmon Galette With Brown Rice-Cornmeal Crust

*Note: Because this recipe contains butter, it is not dairy-free. You could try substituting non-dairy shortenings such as coconut oil or lard, but results may not be the same. You may be able to tell from this more ambitious recipe that my appetite has returned! Though I continued to have morning (or rather, all-day) sickness into […]

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 […]

Clam Sauce With Eggplant & Brown Rice Pasta

  Did you know that clams contain more iron than any other food? They do – even more than liver or beef.  So in my quest to increase my iron intake, I decided to revive an old recipe that I haven’t prepared since my days of eating wheat pasta.  Now I just serve it over […]

Traditional Homemade Granola, With Gluten-Free Oats

  Lately I’ve gone back to eating oats.  Gluten-free oats, that is.  I’ve written about oats before but it’s worth revisiting — oats themselves do not contain gluten, but they are often cross-contaminated with wheat.  So unless they are certified gluten-free there is a chance they may contain wheat, and therefore gluten.  There are a couple of […]

Gluten-Free Brown Rice Lasagna With Sheep’s Milk Ricotta Salata

  Despite the fuzzy picture (my camera’s been on the fritz lately), this is the most exciting entree to come out of my kitchen in years.  I had not eaten lasagna since I went gluten-free and dairy-free four years ago.  However, I recently discovered ricotta salata, a sheep’s milk ricotta that I can tolerate on occasion.  […]

One Lovely Blog Award

  This week my friend Amy at Simply Sugar & Gluten Free gave me this blog award – she is a generous and inspiring woman who has written a lot of gluten-free and sugar-free recipes, many of which are dairy-free as well.  I was touched and also now have the opportunity to pass this on to […]

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 […]
