Everyone has a different "love language" but one love most people have in common? Pizza of course - especially when that pizza is easy to make, free of most allergens and high in protein thanks to the buckwheat base. If that doesn't get your heart pitter-pattering, I also have three topping combos that might as well make homemade pizza your favorite date.

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 the grocery store, on a table, or at a fair, I generally give them a wide berth and carry on with my day. It’s rare for me to see a food with nuts and think “man, I wish I could have that!” It’s only when the nuts are well-hidden, they’re the only food option nearby, or I’m extremely hungry that I feel any resentment towards foods with nuts (or the people serving them.) I know everyone is different and this is not a universal attitude, but that’s how it is for me. Except for Pesto. I don’t know precisely what it is; maybe it’s the fact that the nuts are well-hidden in pesto, maybe it’s the tantalizing aromas of garlic and basil that come with it, or maybe it’s just that I’m attracted to the foods pesto is generally put onto. Regardless, pesto sauce is one of the few nut-containing foods that I regularly salivate at and wish it didn’t contain those dang nuts.
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 informed me that yes, it was possible, so I decided to give it a whirl. If you’d like a delicious, fall-off-the-bone-tender, succulent chicken dinner with minimal work, this is a great technique! Try it and a perfect chicken will be waiting for you when you get home from work–and your house will smell delicious, too!
Red Pepper Sauce I love Italian food, but with my husband being allergic to tomatoes I only get to enjoy pastas, salsas, and other tomato based dishes while out with friends. Then a cousin mentioned her red pepper sauce recipe. The original recipe had way too much garlic for me and not enough peppers to use it for enchilidas, chili, or a red sauce for pasta dishes so I've modified it to fit my families needs, and it keeps the whole house from smelling like garlic for a week too.

Gluten-Free Oat-Free Speedy Granola! Faster than a speeding bullet. More budget-friendly than your local .99 cent shop! Crunchy as a breast-feeding young mum eating hemp seeds out of a paper sack! ...or if you want to be short and sweet, Crispy Gluten-Free Buckwheat Granola. These days, I have a longing to meander in kitchen at slow speeds, baking and chatting and cooking slow. But as a young professional in Beantown, I have a need for slow food made or available fast. Although it's foundational to self-care and good digestion to eat in peace, and slowly, that doesn't mean every meal I swallow needs to take as long to cook as it does to eat.
3 Ingredient Vegan & Gluten Free Pancakes - I made small little pancakes and let them sit on a non-stick skillet for 2-minutes each side. Topping ideas: honey, nut butter, maple syrup, jam / jelly, fruit, chia seeds, etc. I decided to rock some elderberry jam on these babies. Elderberry is well known for its healing properties.
I've taken my MRM Veggie Elite and Garden of Life Raw protein powders, and with a bit of tinned organic pumkpin, organic non-dairy milk, and spices, paired with a sauce-pan, I made a glass of pumpkin pie. It's bloody brilliant, and oy yes, it tastes like pie: drinkable pie. Gluten free pie. Snow will soon be sticking, and sticking, and sticking again, -- and then for well-ploughed snow-walls up beside the roadways and down the drive, and icicles that hang snaggletoothed two storeys long. Even now, it's rather cold for smoothies. Though I've been making my share of smoothies all the same -- there's little easier to toss together gluten-free and whole-food-fast than a smoothie. (Not to mention, because of the ease of nutritional additions, smoothies are a great go-to: they provide meal supplements for healthy weight gain, or snacks for celiac-athlete recovery that's easily digestible.)
The other night I pulled out my phone while making dinner, looking for inspiration to turn our abundant cucumber and tomato crops into an attractive vegetable dish. After seeing a few ideas, I began playing around. Then hubby walked into the kitchen. Hubby: *gasp!* Is that a Greek salad? Me: It’s a cucumber, tomato, and feta salad. Is that Greek? Hubby: I think so!! So hubby decided to add olives to his salad as well. I dunno, it’s all Greek to me! Regardless of what you call it, this dish turned out to be both bright and refreshing! An exciting change from regular garden salads.
Finding allergy-friendly recipes can be hard when you’re new, which is why I love sharing them here on my blog! This week, I’ve got a great, garden-fresh Cucumber Salad made mostly from my own backyard! If you like cucumber, you’ll love this delicious, easy side dish!
