Big news coming soon! But first … I’ve got a new recipe being featured on Attune Foods today … Healthy “Cheesecake” Grahamwiches! The cheesecake-inspired filling is vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, soy-free, and SO easy to make! Check out the recipe by clicking on the image below (yes, I did sandwich some chocolate in there, because why not?) …
I’ve gone back and forth over the years on smoked salmon. We enjoyed it weekly for a while, but then I learned about all of the additives and nitrate issues. Ugh. That knowledge ruins so many awesome-tasting foods, doesn’t it? We were still enjoying some once in a while, but when I discovered the “salmon trimmings” at our local grocer, it was back on! Not only do they only use hickory smoke and salt to cure their salmon, no other […]
Just in case you missed it – Enjoy my recipe for Coconut Crispy Treat “Nests” with Jelly Bean “Eggs!” A fun one to do with kids on Easter day or any day! No marshmallows! Just a few wholesome ingredients + jelly beans of course.
Today, you’re going to love me and you’re going to hate me. I’m sharing my recipe for what we call “Chocolate Crack Bars.” See, look what they do to the gnome! Everyone gets excited when I pop these out of the freezer, which is far too often since they literally take minutes to make. The recipe is being featured on Attune Foods today, so “crack bars” seemed slightly inappropriate for the title. You will find them labeled as Addictive Double […]
I see it all the time. The perfect baked “french fry” that the author swears is the method to make them crisp, followed by mixed reviews of “these were amazing!” and “they didn’t work, not crisp at all!” And you know what, both sets of reviewers are right. If there is one thing I’ve learned over the years it’s that there are a lot of things that can affect a recipe, and this goes well beyond the ingredients and the […]

Surprise!! Today we are honoring our good friend Amy of Simply Sugar & Gluten Free with a Virtual Baby Shower … For my contribution to the shower, I went out on a limb, choosing something savory that doesn’t involve any butter, cream, or cheese (hang with Amy, you are still going to love it, I promise!). Nonetheless, these little frittatas are rich and packed with flavor. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any baby shower inspired props for decorating. But, I did my […]
Today I’m sharing my secrets for cutting back on added sugars in the morning (I have a “no added sugar” before noon policy that I get right 99% of the time) and a quick recipe for Sweet No Added Sugar Whole Grain Cereal (this can also be used for hot cereals without added sugar too!). See my post with the tips and recipe here on Attune Foods. While you’re there, please share your own tips for healthy breakfasts and cutting back on […]
Did you enjoy the holidays? My husband and I don’t usually exchange gifts during the holidays, so this year, I felt like a little kid again with all of the wonderful surprises! Tony outdid himself in deal-finding (hello, awesome new, more powerful netbook for just $200!!), my in-laws as usual were so generous (love the new powder blue ski coat!), and I even received a cool, and completely unexpected gift basket of treats in the mail …. Is it just […]
Even though I’ve never had a gluten-free holiday in the past, as the honorary dairy-free gal in the free-from foodie club, I was invited to join in on the Home for the Holidays: Gluten-Free Style event, hosted by Shirley at Gluten Free Easily. Truthfully, the timing couldn’t be better, as by coincidence (seriously, this is just a coincidence) we will be having our first gluten-free and dairy-free Christmas this year. Now, the idea of Home for the Holidays is to share […]
The Attune Recipe Contest theme this month ($200 in groceries prize people!) is Homemade Gifts from the Kitchen. The playing field is wide open for entrants, but for my guest post on Attune this month, they gave me a more specific guide, high fiber. So what gift from the kitchen does one make when wholesomeness is a primary concern? Why cookies of course! I went the extra mile in the high fiber arena, using whole wheat pastry flour AND whole grain […]
I decided to join in for one last hoorah on Taste & Create and was paired up with Kat of the blog Study Food. She’s a relatively new food blogger, which made narrowing down options easier! I ended up going with her Chilli Con Sausage recipe, which was inspired by a Nigella recipe. I picked this recipe because I’ve always wondered about cocoa in chili. It is a “spice” that I’ve never used before and thought it might be great for […]
My friend Sea at Book of Yum invited me to be a part of her Thanksgiving Recipe Carnival, and since she is so darn sweet, I simply couldn’t say no. The idea behind this particular event is a bit unique … she wants to show people that it doesn’t need to be difficult to feed gluten-free vegetarians and vegans for Thanksgiving. I’m not a meat alternative guru, so I thought I would stick with one of my specialties, baking. At first, I dreamt up some […]
