Ahhh, ice cream. Even better: salty and sweet ice cream. The combination of salty and sweet is one of my favorites. I love taking a bite and not knowing exactly what it will taste like.

Also, in case you were wondering, I use this Kitchenaid ice cream attachment for my stand mixer. It works great – during the summer, I keep the bowl frozen in the freezer so that any time I’m in the mood for ice cream, I can grab it and make a refreshingly cool treat immediately.  


I finally ate the last of this last night, and I’m really sad that it’s gone. It was the perfect ending to the last weeks’ worth of dinners.

I guess I’ll just have to make some more. 


I am a firm believer that ice cream is appropriate at any time of year, even when it’s -20′ outside (although it never gets quite that cold here in the Pacific Northwest), but it is especially precious and fulfilling when the sun is blaring and you’ve been playing outside all day.

Two Eggnog recipes. The first, a Vegan Eggnog Coffee (or tea) Creamer that will transform a boring cup of coffee into a healthy eggnog latte. The second, a Light, Dairy-free Eggnog recipe made with dairy-free milk, ground spices and a touch of coconut sugar.

We made three different kinds of lunchables as part of a back to school segment and they were a hit. We did not let them go to waste and took them for lunch, just like the kids.

These were delicious, light, and healthy homemade lunchables that included (more…)

Easy Tamale Pie: Gluten-free and Dairy-free

August 29th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

A few years ago, I made a version of tamale pie where I made tamale dough and put something in the middle (honest, I can’t remember; it might have been chili inside). I’m not sure why that went out of my rotation. More recently, I made a tamale pie as more of an experiment with black beans and salsa on the bottom and tamale dough on top. That was a huge hit.

Sweet Summer Salmon Recipe

July 25th, 2013 by Candice Rose Clifford

It’s been a hot summer these past few days in NY. When the heat is beaming, one of my favorite kinds of meals to enjoy is fish on the grill because it doesn’t leave me feeling heavy.

To me, summer is all about enjoying fresh ingredients. Fruit and veggies are at their prime and I always look forward to the first long island corn on the cob. I think my family would honestly be happy eating watermelon every night for dinner; this being a summer tradition I also love.

gluten free nutella recipe

gluten free nutella recipe

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…)

Gluten-free Dairy-free Blueberry Muffin Recipe

March 14th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

Whether you make your own gluten-free flour mix or buy one like Auntie’s Flour Blend, it’s easy to make really tasty muffins. You just need a fool-proof recipe!

I’ve been making these muffins for about 5 years. When my daughter was first diagnosed with a gluten and dairy sensitivity, I put my best foot forward and figured out the perfect combination of ingredients to create a moist and flavorful end product. There are a few rules, though, that are important to follow. Here are my suggestions:blueberry_muffins

Gluten-free Dairy-free Belgium Waffles Recipe

January 9th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

I don’t know about you but when I smell Belgium waffles at those kiosks, I really wish I could eat gluten. Last year I vowed to find a replacement and I must say, I nailed it. I have made it two ways; with the caramelized sugar and without. Both are still delicious and my children are very appreciative of the effort I have made (read: this is not a quick recipe but worth the wait).

This New Year’s day, I thought it would be fun to make them as a treat. The crowd (both gluten-free and not) agreed it was a winner. Read through the (more…)
