Fruit for Dessert: Heavenly Ambrosia (Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Vegan)

January 1st, 2009 · 12 Comments

I just ate a little bowl of ambrosia while I was sitting in a steamy hot bath.  It was decadent. Between Halloween and Christmas, my husband and I took part in the dessert slide of doom.  You may know what I’m talking about—a slippery slope from dessert as an occasional treat to dessert nearly every […]

Note: I originally published this post in April, but my friends and I have tweaked the bread recipe since then, so I’m making the changes and bumping it up for the rest of you to see. From April: It’s been nearly a year since I was diagnosed with serious food allergies, which was followed pretty […]

Eat Your Beans & Greens—No, Seriously, You Should Make This Recipe

October 30th, 2008 · 19 Comments

Ever since I first tried this recipe out of Heidi Swanson’s Super Natural Cooking, we eat it at least twice a month, which is saying something in this house where we rarely eat the same meal twice.  And while we don’t fight over the leftovers, the spouse who offers to let the other eat the […]

Pleasures of the Finite (and Some Tasty Cookies)

August 30th, 2008 · 28 Comments

One of the things I found most troubling after my food allergy (and then gluten & casein intolerance) diagnosis was the sudden difficulty with baking.  You see, ever since I learned to bake reasonably well, I’ve loved to do it—and not just because it provides me with tasty food.  Baking is a rare activity in […]

Meal Plan for the Week: Wholesome, Tasty, and Allergen-Free (Plus a weight-loss update)

August 25th, 2008 · 22 Comments

Do you ever have moments when your brain is so mashed full of thoughts, ideas, and feelings that when you open your mouth to speak or pose your hands to type, you pause to collect your thoughts, and then can get little of use to come out? That’s me today.  I’m sitting in a chair […]

Easy-Peasy Flourless Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies

July 21st, 2008 · 13 Comments

You may have seen an easy cookie recipe floating around the interwebs, particularly around the gluten-free interweb circles, that involves simply peanut butter, eggs, sugar, and chocolate chips.  I first saw the recipe on Mary Frances’s blog a while back.  I can’t eat eggs, and I was curious whether the cookies would work with an […]

Allergen-Free, Gluten-Free Coconut Macaroon Pancakes

May 7th, 2008 · 6 Comments

When I saw Heidi’s coconut macaroon pancakes, I knew I had to try them. When my friend Les saw them independently, she felt the same way. We integrated them in to our simplicity circle retreat meal plan. When the time arrived to make them, we altered them to be gluten-free and egg-free, and we hoped […]

Creamy Wild Rice Soup from Super Natural Food

April 28th, 2008 · 10 Comments

This was the sequence of events: One of the other simplicity members and I had both taken note of Heidi Swanson’s macaroon pancake recipe. We decided to make it on our retreat. I took it upon myself to gush to the group about Heidi’s blog: the amazing photos, the natural ingredients, the quality recipes. Then […]

Allergen-Free Fruity Wild Rice Salad

April 4th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Shauna at Gluten-Free Girl recently requested gluten-free recipes that include wild rice. I adore the nutty texture and satisfying flavor of wild rice, and I immediately thought of this recipe–one of my first allergen-free, intolerance-free creations I made after I began cooking gluten-free, casein-free, soy-free, and egg-free. Then I thought, I should share it with […]
