Recipe exchange experiment: Butternut squash bake and fudge

So the recipe exchange experiment was pretty much a failure on my end, but I did get two recipes out of it: butternut squash bake and a recipe for a single-serving of fudge. Continue reading

New spreads: Dairy-free. Soy-free. Guilt-free??

How am I supposed to feel about tropical oils? They’re cropping up in all sorts of products, but there is so much conflicting information out there. I remember hearing a year or so ago that you should avoid palm fruit oil. Manufacturers started relying on this oil in many processed foods when they received pressure … Continue reading

My favorite black bean soup

On this first day of winter (can you believe it?) I’ve decided to post the recipe for my favorite black bean soup. This is a perfect vegan winter dish, and it’s so hearty that even my dad and brother love it. If you can eat sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, they are great toppings … Continue reading

Holiday potluck dish: Sweet potato casserole

Have you ever had a cookbook from which you only ever used one recipe? Well, I have a lot of those, so during a recent move, I decided to get rid of a few. Naturally, one of them would have come in handy this past weekend, but the recipe was so simple it turns out … Continue reading

Thanksgiving 2011 success #2: Gluten-free stuffing

Thanksgiving 2011 was my first truly allergy-friendly Thanksgiving, so I had to hunt down some new recipes this year. Some of them were huge successes. Only one attempt had to be tossed. And I made a couple of cool discoveries. My biggest success this year by far was my pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie is definitely … Continue reading

My favorite breakfast: Banana smoothie

When I was little, my mom would make us “banana milkshakes” — frozen bananas and milk blended together — as a dessert. She’s never been big on junk food, and this was a good way to make sure overripe bananas didn’t go to waste. I high school, my preferred breakfast was very similar: peanut butter … Continue reading

The Dairy Dilemma — Or, ‘What can I do when I’m allergic to both dairy and soy?’

Before starting my allergy-friendly diet, I loved dairy products. I drank milk with many meals; I ate yogurt and cheese all the time. I never understood people who didn’t like dairy products. Because I have never cared for eating a lot of meat and I’ve known about my egg allergy since 2005, dairy products seemed … Continue reading

BabyCakes attempt #1: Pancakes

Do you ever wake up craving pancakes? I often do. I usually wake up hoping someone else will make them for me. :) A few days ago, I decided to give in and try a pancake recipe I’ve been wanting to make for a while. It’s the first recipe in “BabyCakes Covers the Classics,” the … Continue reading
