Tropical Sand Cup

We’ve come up with a different take on the traditional “Dirt Cup” and made it an allergy-friendly recipe. Last spring, Enjoy Life Foods gave us the ingredients for making their dirt cup. It was very good! My wife thought she might have had a slight reaction to it though. Since Enjoy Life Products are top 8 free (so safe for her tree-nut allergy), she wondered if she had a possible Oral Allergy Syndrome to avocados. I was brainstorming for a while about what I could substitute the avocado with. With summer still going, I wanted a fun treat that would remind me of vacationing at the beach. Since we live by the Rocky Mountains, we don’t have any beaches, just a few reservoirs. I put on my Super thinking cap and remembered the dirt cup from the spring. I needed to sub out the avocado, so I thought bananas would do the trick for the pudding base. We didn’t have any rice milk which the original recipe called for, but we had some So Delicious Coconut milk. With these flavors mixed together, the Tropical Sand Cup was born!

VeganEgg French Toast

Breakfast. I love it. I really love starting our morning off with a nice, big breakfast. Sunday’s around here are known as Pancake Day. It’s a nice treat to make something more fun and a little more time consuming for a lazy Sunday morning. Once in a while I’ll make waffles to mix it up a bit. One thing I have always wanted to try for my kids is French toast. There’s just something about the thick bread coated in an egg mixture and covered in syrup and powdered sugar that sends my taste buds tingling. But the problem is, my oldest son is allergic to egg and you can’t just take any egg replacer and make French toast out of it. In fact, when I was first learning about egg substitutions and we started using Ener-G, I asked if we could use that in French toast. My wife laughed a little and said “no.” I’ve seen recipes trying to circumvent that such as using a banana mixture, but he’s not that fond of bananas anymore and I wanted something that was going to be more like real French toast. Enter VeganEgg.

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!

Teal Pumpkin Spice Cake

This delicious beauty is top 8 free! It can also be corn free if you use organic powdered sugar with tapioca starch and other safe-for-you ingredients (flour, vanilla, colors, etc.) Decorate this cake with teal frosting and bring it to your next Halloween party! It’ll be a great way to spread awareness about the #KeepItTeal campaign and show everyone that allergy-friendly food can taste delicious too!

Sunbutter Banana Bread

So it was the end of the year and our boys were about to embark on that time-honored tradition of driving their parents crazy for two weeks. Otherwise known as winter school break. As we went through the Lost and Found there was a nearby basket teeming with overripe bananas, for free. I picked up a bunch and Eileen asked me what I was going to do with a bunch of rotten bananas. I didn’t know, but I knew they were free. Then it hit me, banana bread! She looked at me quizzically or maybe rolled her eyes, and we went home. Now, I’ve had banana bread, but I’ve never made it. Usually it has walnuts in it, which is a big no-no in our tree-nut allergic house. So out went the walnuts. I wanted to try more baking with Sunbutter since both our boys love it and I thought bananas and Sunbutter go together, so why not?

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 full blown meal doesn’t really happen since I would be the only one eating it. My in-laws took us out to eat recently and everyone had leftovers but me. That seemed like the perfect opportunity for me to make a pot of chili. Plus, I saw a recent ad for our local grocery store about chili, so I thought it was meant to be. I have fond memories of chili going back to being in grade school when Friday’s lunch would be chili day complete with a warm tortilla for dipping and a cinnamon roll for desert. I had never made my own chili before and I was excited to try it out and recapture those fond memories. What I love about this is how easily adaptable it is. The original recipe called for ground beef, but I used ground turkey. Or you don’t have to add any meat at all; I’ll bet tofu would work well in this too or use beans only. I decided to use three different types of beans instead of one, but you can easily swap out one type for your favorite or double up on one that you like more. But the best part of this recipe I think is the slow cooker. Just put everything into it and it’s ready to go for dinner. (I love easy!)

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 people have documented allergic reactions to food dye, and there are also behavioral links to the stuff. It’s definitely not the best for you. Personally, I have not been able to move myself away from artificial colors entirely, though I’ve been limiting them except for my sons’ birthday parties (when I tend to go to town on the frosting.) I have been looking at alternatives more often though, and toying with using beets as the color source for Red Velvet Cake. I was worried it would taste like beets, and there was a bit on my first try, though I was the only one who seemed bothered by it. Zax even ate several of that batch without frosting, and he didn’t make any complaints–and let me tell you, that kid is picky! I felt it was too beety though, so I . . .
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 I came to terms that it’s supposed to taste like sunflower seeds (you know because that’s what it’s actually made from) I began to like it. Now I love the spread and I wanted to experiment more with using it instead of peanut butter in different recipes. Chocolate Sunbutter Pie is my first. But I wanted this to be a top 8 free treat and the problem is the crust. Usually I would use a graham cracker crust, but it has gluten. And the gluten-free ones I’ve seen has egg. Ugh. I was having a quick breakfast of Enjoy Life Foods Chocolate Sunseed Crunch bars and I thought this would be a perfect match. You can’t get enough chocolate or sunflower seeds. But it was a soft baked bar, not a crust. But would it work? Yes. It’s not a perfect crust, but it’s still delicious and fits perfectly with the chocolate Sunbutter pie. It also makes it top 8 free. I wanted to make this really easy by using . . .
