  • Thanksgiving Turkey in a Crock Pot

    Ever since last year, when I learned that I could roast a chicken in my crock pot, I wondered if I could do the same thing with a turkey. After trading out my decades-old 4 quart machine for a new 6 quart, I gave it a try. And guess what? IT WORKED!

  • Sunbutter Banana Bread

  • Super Easy Three Bean Chili

    Beans. I like them. But I’m the only one in my household who does. That means I don’t have many dishes that has beans in them. I’ll open up a can of black beans to go on burritos or nachos once in a while, or a can of chili to go on a potato, but a f

  • Dye-free Red Velvet Cupcakes

    Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Did you know that traditional Red Velvet cake uses a whole little squeeze bottle of red food coloring? You can use less if you have the super pigmented stuff, but still, that’s a lot of artificial food pigment. Some

  • Chocolate Sunbutter Pie (with Enjoy Life Foods Chocolate Sunseed Crunch Crust)

    I’ll be straight up honest with you. When I first tried Sunbutter I didn’t like it. Not at all. (Both my peanut allergic boys loved it.) It wasn’t peanut butter, it was different. And that was my problem. It’s not supposed to be peanut butter. After

  • Nut Free Pesto

    Here’s the thing about having a tree nut allergy: for me, most of the time, I don’t feel left out at all. Having spent my whole life knowing not only that nuts are off limits but potentially deadly, they truly don’t have any allure. If I see nuts in

  • Roast a Whole Chicken in your Crockpot

    We have a couple of frozen chickens in our freezer, and I’ve been wanting to roast them but haven’t wanted to spend all day near the kitchen. I then wondered whether it was possible to roast a chicken in the crockpot? A quick consultation with google

  • Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes

    Sunday is pancake day in our house. We pretty much aren’t allowed to deviate from this, unless we make waffles instead. I decided to change things up a little bit this past week though, by incorporating the flavors of the season. And I decided to mak

  • Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

    We went out for dinner the other night, and hubby was the only one of us who could order a milkshake for dessert–there was too great a risk of cross contamination for us allergic folk. The seasonal milkshakes sounded really good though, so we decided

  • Sunbutter Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Pomegranate Martini

  • Cocoa Turmeric Tea

    This is a drink I invented about eight months ago. I’d been thinking about all the foods, drinks, and nutrients “they” say you should consume every day, and how impossible it would be to come even close to the daily quota for most—much less trying to

  • Easy Potatoes Boulanger

    I modified this recipe from the potatoes that accompanied a pork recipe in our McCall's Cooking School cookbook. The pork is killer and I'll post my variation of that recipe sometime, but it's a time-consuming beast, best for special occasions. I enj

    I've been using this pizza crust recipe for a while, when we make homemade pizza. I like it's ease of use--your bread machine does most of the work for you, and it behaves nicely when you spread it out on the pan. If you'd like a way to make your own

  • Slow-Cooker BBQ Pork

    I love my crockpot! It's so nice to dump all the ingredients in one big pot and let time do the cooking all day. I'll use it any time I get the chance! Another thing I love is pulled pork. I've shared my Hawaiian Pork recipe before, so today I'll sha

  • Egg(less) Nog

    Egg Nog. It's a tradition for many at this time of year. I'll be one of the first to say that I love the flavors, the creamy richness, and the decadence of eggnog. Sharing a cool glass with a loved one while bundled up in a cozy sweater is a quintess
