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 […]

Pumpkin Cookies

I am temporarily removing this post because a few days after refrigerating these cookies, something kind of unappetizing happened with their appearance….going to fine-tune the recipe before posting it again:)

Almond-Date Tart With Sweet Plums

  When I said I gave up sugar, I didn’t mean I gave up sweets.  Now I just make healthier desserts, especially with fresh seasonal fruits.  Fresh fruit contains fiber and other nutrients which naturally slow the absorption of sugar while remaining sweet to taste.  As we are nearing the end of the stone fruit […]

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 […]

Blueberry Amaranth Pancakes

  Who says breakfast is the most difficult meal for the gluten-intolerant?  Granted, I don’t always have time to cook in the morning, but on those days that I do, I enjoy creating a delicious, healthy, nutritious breakfast more than any other meal.  Pancakes were always my favorite breakfast when I was a kid, and […]
