Fig Snack Bars Worthy of Sir Isaac (GF/DF/NS)
After years of saying to the Gent every time we walked down the grocery store cookie aisle, “you know, I’d really like to create a whole food, gluten-free, low-glycemic version of Fig Newtons…” I have finally done just that. And … Continue reading
Dessert or Breakfast? Rustic Vanilla Crema & Berry Tart with Almond Crust (GF/DF/NS)
On lazy Sunday mornings with the Gent, I’m often guilty of making dessert for breakfast. “Guilty” is perhaps not the best choice of word, however, since this nutritionally dense, gluten and dairy free, protein-packed, low glycemic tart actually makes for … Continue reading
Gluten-Free Coconut Blueberry Coffeecake (GF/DF/NS)
Coffeecake falls into my favorite genre of baked goods: that place where breakfast and dessert overlap. This recipe will work with many different combinations of berries. I frequently use Bob’s Red Mill GF All-Purpose flour, but those sensitive to legumes should … Continue reading
Pumpkin “Alfredo” Sauce (GF/DF/V)
It’s hard to believe this decadent, velvety “alfredo” sauce is dairy-free and packed with protein, fiber, and anti-inflammatory ingredients, but sometimes miracles do happen! The pumpkin and turmeric give the sauce its bright, cheerful color, while also adding beta carotene and … Continue reading
Feelin’ Saucy: Creamy Orange Ginger Dressing (GF/DF/Mayo-Free)
I’ve always loved saucy dishes, but now that I’m living with Sjogren’s Syndrome, dressings and sauces have actually become a critical part of my diet. Sjogren’s Syndrome attacks the moisture-producing glands in the body, impacting the salivary glands and the … Continue reading
Simplest, Fudgiest, No-Bake Brownies (GF/DF/V/NS)
These brownies are impossibly chewy, gooey, and fudgy. They are also gluten-free and dairy-free, contain no refined sugars, and require no baking — but you can keep that to yourself when you serve them, and let folks marvel at the … Continue reading
Creamy Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup (Gluten and Dairy Free)
The Midwestern Gentleman used to have an amazing recipe (or so he claims) for a creamy chicken and wild rice soup. He has been talking about this soup, longing for it, searching for a comparable recipe, for the past three … Continue reading
Campfire Cooking on a Gluten-Free, Anti-Inflammatory Diet
At first, packing a gluten-free, anti-inflammatory camp pantry for a week-long camping trip in Minnesota seemed a bit daunting. Then I really thought about it, and realized that a lot of what we eat translates fairly well to cooking over … Continue reading

Pesto-Stuffed Mushrooms with Marsala Cashew Cream Sauce
Mmm, pesto! I’ve sung its praises before, but I really have yet to exhaust its culinary potential. Here, it adds flavor and a nutritional boost to brown rice stuffed portobello mushrooms. The protein-rich cashew cream sauce rounds out this dish, … Continue reading
Peanut Butter Swirl Fudge Pops (GF/DF/NS)
The Midwestern Gentleman ran a 50-mile leg of RAGBRAI last Tuesday (yes, he ran it), so I wanted to make a cool treat for him to enjoy when he finally arrived home after this latest insane accomplishment. He loves the … Continue reading
