Warm Spinach Artichoke Dip (GF/DF/V)
This dip is healthy enough to be a legit side dish at dinnertime, so you can snack away with abandon and without the guilt. This is a good thing, because once you taste it, you may just want to steal … Continue reading
Jam-Swirled Gingerbread Porridge for Frosty Winter Mornings (GF/DF/NS)
Groundhog Day came and went on Sunday, and no one living in the North was surprised by Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction of six more weeks of winter. Temperatures in Iowa have lingered ten to thirty degrees below average for months, with … 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
Pão (de Queijo) Dairy-Free Variations Part II: The Sweet (GF/DF)
My last post featured variations on the small, savory Brazilian snackie bread called Pão de Queijo. This time around, I’ve eliminated the cheese in favor of sweet flavorings, making these pão into tasty little bite-sized dessert pastries that won’t blow your daily … Continue reading
Pão (de Queijo) Dairy-Free Variations Part I: The Savory (GF/DF)
I am obsessed with Pão de Queijo, small Brazilian cheese bread puffs which are traditionally made with gluten-free cassava (a.k.a. manioc, a.k.a tapioca) flour. I find gluten-free “bread” to be something of an oxymoron, so finding a traditional, bread-like recipe … 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
Good to the Last Bite: Gluten-Free Banana Bread (GF/DF)
I have made three batches of this banana bread — with and without chocolate chips and shredded coconut — over the last month, and each time, it disappeared so quickly, I didn’t find the time for a decent photo-shoot. So, … 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
Pineapple-Coconut Sherbet (GF/DF/V/NS)
How do you feel about sherbet? I have always thought of sherbet as the humbler cousin of rich, decadent ice cream and elegant, tangy sorbet (or sorbetto, depending on which country’s frozen confections you prefer). I discovered a new love … Continue reading
