This is my first attempt at making any type of pie, but my mom has made this pie recipe dozens of times, so I know it’s good. As with most gluten free pie crusts, you have to press the dough into the pie plate instead of rolling it out. I messed up a bit with this part because I forgot to check the depth on the bottom of the crust. It turned out way too thick… oops. Luckily, the dough tastes like a sugar cookie, so it wasn’t the end of the world. Next time I will remember to check the depth with a fork before baking the crust. Other than that slight misstep, the pie turned out great. Read More »

This is a great way to start the day on a sweeter note, without the sugars found in more traditional sweet morning fare—something that works great for those following a gluten-free–and even grain-free–lifestyle. It is packed with fiber, Vitamin A, protein and healthy fat. Use sweet potatoes or winter squash that has been pre-cooked to make preparation fast and easy–there should be plenty on hand, either before or after a Thanksgiving feast! This is a dish that pleases young and old alike.
• 1 cup cooked Sweet Potatoes or Winter Squash, skins removed
• 2-3 raw Eggs
• ½ cup unsweetened Almond Milk or Coconut Milk
• ½ tsp. ground Nutmeg
• ½ tsp. ground Cinnamon
• 1 tsp. Vanilla extract Read More »
I can’t believe that it is almost Thanksgiving! Where has this year gone to, or this month further more lol The fall is flying by, and I must say I’m loving it since I love the holidays. This is the first year that I will not be participating in the traditional Thanksgiving meal with family, as my Mother and I will be venturing to NYC for the week!
I did though, however, prepare for this and the Christmas holiday meals by recreating my absolute favorite side dish. I thought my holidays would be ruined when I went gluten free and thought I’d never eat my Mother’s stuffing again! I’m pretty crafty, so I of course I found a way to avoid a major meltdown at the dinner table.
I knew a meltdown was certain to happen if I had to watch others eat stuffing in front of me, dun dun dun….so I found a gluten free stuffing mix and recreated Mom’s recipe, and it tastes exactly the same! Read More »

Yeah,turkey soup and mashed potato bowls are great,but I wanted to create a unique turkey sandwich. I didn’t want anything complicated,just a different way to enjoy the Read More »
I loved the idea of gifting my homemade cake stands to friends and families for the holidays. (Thanks everyone!)
Thing is – you can’t really give a cake stand to someone without having treats on it, especially if they know that you love to bake.
So I tried to figure out what seasonal recipe I could make for the stands that I could prepare ahead of time, freeze, would appeal to everyone I know (gluten-free, vegan, egg allergies, potato allergies etc), and will stay on the stand with little concern of things breaking.
Tall order, right? Read More »
