Non-Fat Salad Dressing Bursting with Flavor

Have you ever tried Low Fat Mayonnaise? Seriously, who’s evil invention was that stuff??!! The new fitness plan we are on calls for a leaner menu. And while almost all of the food/recipes are completely whole food based, they do call for a couple of ingredients that I might not…

Did Someone Say Organic Cookie GIVEAWAY?!

Way back in the day, when I first created the website Go Dairy Free, there were just a few fledgling special diet companies out there. One of the first ones I made contact with was Gak’s Snacks. Jill, the mother of a child with multiple food allergies, created a peanut-free,…

Don’t Forget Mom!

The clock is ticking … just over a week until Mother’s Day. I am doing my best to plan ahead so I don’t end up in a last minute panic calling a local florist where my mom lives. In fact, I gathered together some of my top Mother’s Day Foodie…

Sinful Cinnamon-Apple Sauté (Breakfast or Dessert?)

Actually, this little dish isn’t sinful at all, but that title just sounds so good doesn’t it? Well, this saute does produce tender, juicy apples with a wonderfully rich, sweet, and cinnamon-y syrup, rendering it indulgent enough for a healthy dessert. However, I had it for breakfast. I ate it on its own as a part…

Easy Veggie Udon for Ramen Lovers

Earlier this week, I needed something to go with two salmon filets I was baking. Since I was craving some carbs, and it was a little too late to whip up a batch of bread … and I wasn’t patient enough to wait for brown rice to cook, I decided pasta was…

Taste & Create: Sautéed Lemon-Garlic Broccoli(ni)

Is there such a thing as too much broccoli? No seriously. The fact that I ate half a pound of broccoli in one sitting doesn’t indicate that I have a problem does it?  Perhaps I have a slight love for those little green trees, or perhaps this recipe was just…

Mini Mushroom-Parsley Patties

Never one to pass up a good deal, I snatched up an 8-ounce package of button mushrooms that was on for half price yesterday.  It was expiring that day, but at $.86 how could I pass it up!  Though the outsides of the mushrooms were beginning to show their age,…

Sugar-Free, Guilt-Free Banana Bread

The Breakfast-Worthy Banana Bread recipe is now viewable in a new post for you to trial! With a couple of over-ripe bananas beckoning from the counter, I knew it was time to take some baking action.  Luckily, blogging buddy Ricki reminded me of the “Breakfast-Worthy Banana Bread” in Go Dairy Free. Though I…
