Easy Garlic and Herb Croutons

Quick Note: Congrast to Casi Leigh! Winner of the Rudi’s Giveaway this week. Another giveaway coming up soon! Since I have so many wonderful gluten-free friends, I frequently hear the sorrow of croutons arriving on a prepared salad when dining out. But what many may not realize, is that strict dairy-free people…

Giveaway: Organic Rudi’s Bread & Sandwich Boxes

This is my favorite commercial bread bakery, and frankly, the only brand I’ve purchased in years. I’m big on homemade bread, but when this stuff goes on sale, I sometimes cheat and pick up a loaf for breakfast toast. I love that they run a dairy-free bakery! To get warmed…

Cocoa-Crusted Macadamia Nuts

One of the joys of blogging is making friends with amazing people, and even meeting a few (in person!) whose work you’ve admired over the internet for what seems like ages. For me, one of those people was Amy Green. I got to chat with this sweet lady nearly a year ago (my…

Egg-Free Meatball Marinara

I received a few interesting packages recently that begged to be made into a meal. The first included several boxes of Wasa Crispbread along with a Crispbread cookbook! How cool is that? That shipment was followed by several jars of Barilla pasta sauce and two boxes of Barilla Piccolini pasta.…

Chocolate Cherry Fudge Drop Cookies

On Go Dairy Free today, I have a review up of the gorgeous cookbook Simply … Gluten Free Desserts by my friend Carol Kicinski. This woman is amazing. As you probably know, I’m not gluten-free, but do dabble in the art. Many gluten-free goodies are, well how do I put this…

Peanut Butter Addiction

I was looking through the recipes I’ve created thus far for my next book, and close to 50% of them have peanut butter, nut butter, seed butter, or ground nuts in them (with a hefty chunk being just peanut butter). FIFTY PERCENT! I think I need to tone this down…

Marvelous Honey-Mango Muffins

You thought I had left you, didn’t you? I confess that I almost did. But, it seems I just needed a little time to figure things out. It was time to get started on a second book, but I wasn’t sure of the exact focus, nor how to manage everything. But all is good…

Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Fish Tacos

I was invited by my friend Wendy of Celiacs in the House to be a part of the Gluten-Free Summer Cooking Event with Lindsay Olives. I chose the challenge of making their Easy Grilled Fish Tacos dairy-free (and did I mention that they are soy-free too?). Click the image below…
