Tropical Chia Seed Pudding Recipe {Mango, Banana, Coconut}

August 19th, 2014 by Chrissy and Lauren


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…)

Eastern Mediterranean Pizza Recipe

TWD: Eastern Mediterranean Pizza, copyright 2013, gfcelebration.com, All rights reserved

We actually made this recipe for the first time a couple of weeks ago, but it was late in the day and we lacked the necessary natural light to photograph it. This recipe intrigued us, since pita bread is not easily converted to gluten free, and admittedly, we have yet to make just pita bread using this recipe. Before singling out the pita bread, we wanted to just explore this dough for the pizza itself, and if it turned out  to be successful, develop it further for really good gluten free (more…)

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.

Fresh Spring Rolls w/ Thai Sweet Red Chili Sauce

February 24th, 2014 by Bella McKenzie

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…)

4 Ingredient Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches

4-Ingredient Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches

I’ve been going through an (unplanned) dessert recipe detox since the launch of my dessert cookbook earlier this year.

It’s not that I’ve been avoiding desserts, I just haven’t been interested in making them as much. But, realizing that the last sweet treat I shared with you was this Cherry Chunk Protein Ice Cream on June 18, I knew that something had to be done. (more…)
