I have a treat for you this weekend! Gluten free vegan easy and super creamy tomato basil soup! A classic comfort dish!
Yes, that is right – this recipe is creamy, rich deliciousness that is vegan and doesn’t take forever to make!
It has been exceptionally cold around the Mid West these days, and while this is the time of the year that my heart longs for a warm repose, there is nothing like a warm classic soup to soothe the soul!
Okay, I really didn’t mean to rhyme!
But anyway, I started making this and didn’t know where I was going. Seriously.
All you chefs out there know what I am talking about… (more…)

This is one of our very favorite desserts. It meets all the criteria we look for in making a dessert. It is generally loved by young and old alike. It doesn’t require baking, there are no gluten free flour ratios to balance out, no added sugar, free of lengthy preparation and complicated steps, and most importantly so delicious. In our globally connected world, you can now find strawberries almost year round. We generally prefer to eat foods as they are available seasonally, and locally grown if at all possible. But that is just not always practical when you live in a high desert environment, where so much of our food gets trucked in. Nearly all our local stores carry quite an assortment of (more…)

Let’s be real for a minute. I bet that when you hear “pudding” you really hear “Snack Pack.”
It’s ok, me too. No shame in that. As kids, we didn’t know any difference.
If you were lucky enough, those glorious little snackies appeared in our lunch bags, day after day, and were the most coveted item in the cafeteria, well, besides Gushers.
Snack Packs reminds me of the legendary film, Billy Madison, and this clip. Great movie.
Now that we aren’t 6 any more are grown-ups (I use that word loosely), go throw away that Snack Pack you were about to peel open, and dig your spoon into a jar of this heavenly stuff. (more…)

I remember those extremely busy days for my husband and I back between 2010 and 2011. I mean, don’t get me wrong, we are always busy, but I mean at that time we were just so busy that sometimes we couldn’t fathom the thought of cooking.
Yes, those type days exist, even for gluten free vegans… (more…)

I have to say that my husband is one brilliant chef. I love him.
He always does the complicated yummy dishes, but sometimes it is simple and delightful.
These quesadillas were just that – simple and delightful.
These savory quesadillas were so good and the Daiya cheese made them perfect!

Since summer weather hit, most of my evening meals consist of spiralized veggies topped with some kind of yummy sauce. Thankfully, I’m not left to my creativity alone. I’ve had lots of help from our Raw Foods Thursdays participants.
Here are a few posts that you’ll want to check out:
Do you have a spiralizer yet? If not, let me highly recommend that you get one. I guarantee that it won’t become just one more kitchen gadget that you need to find room to store once the newness wears off. I use mine almost on a daily basis. Not only does it give you creative ways to use veggies but it increases your vegetable consumption, because squiggly veggies are just so much more fun to eat than veggie sticks!
I’ve been wanting to share this raw pasta dish for a while. It’s super easy to make and even more fun to eat! I hope you enjoy it! (more…)

Everyone has different reasons for making food (like Nutella) at home which they can buy off of the shelf; it might be economic or for health reasons. Since the first time I tried Nutella, I never had the desire to make it. But, when the day came that my darling dairy-free daughter could no longer partake because of the milk in it, I considered it.
I had seen a recipe for the hazelnut spread in my high-powered blender but assumed it was hard. I decided one day to take a look and was very happy to find that 1. it was not that hard (1 hour start to finish with time in between when you don’t have to do anything), 2. I had most of the ingredients in my cabinet with the exception of the hazelnuts (aka filberts), and 3. the recipe did not have any dairy in it. Ok, time to shift the paradigm again. (more…)

When most of you land on our website, your have come to expect yet another gluten free dish, ideally in a baked version. Don’t worry, we are still developing gluten free recipes and plan on doing so for some time to come. However, in our own home, we also prepare many raw food dishes as well. We especially enjoy the many (more…)
