Words can not express how much I love my almond & orange spinach salad! Spinach salads are the way to my heart to begin with, but add the almond and orange dressing, the fresh sliced oranges and chopped almonds, plus the caramelized onions…. I am in taste bud heaven This is a dinner I not…

While my Mom was in town she wanted to treat us to a special lunch, which is why we had the pleasure of eating at Leaf in Boulder. Leaf is a vegetarian restaurant just behind Aji on Pearl, and although it doesn’t have a gluten-free menu like Aji, the staff are well informed on gluten-free….

Frozen Sunbutter Fudge

My daughter has struggled with yeast overgrowth in her body, so we avoid peanuts, which grow in the ground and carry fungus (not that this mold is really good for any of us). I came up with this recipe using Sunbutter (sunflower seed butter) because it has a similar taste to peanut butter and everyone…

Zolo Grill, Boulder, CO

This weekend we went to the Boulder Creek Festival, and had lunch beforehand at Zolo Grill. It’s been a while since we’ve eaten there, because it’s a little expensive for us, so it was a nice treat.

Frozen Cafe au Lait

Here is a photo of how I store my nut milks in the frig – almond, cashew, macadamia, coconut, etc. I like to use glass because plastic leaches toxins into your food and drinks. Also glass doesn’t hold odors or stain like plastic. You can find these on amazon: Glass Jugs If you are casein-free…

Chocolate Chip Bars

I have a confession to make. It could be said in the land of gluten-free baked goods, I have only one vice, my chocolate chip bars. They are so good I could just eat them all day, and why not? The almond butter and quinoa are full of vitamins, enzymes, and protein. The coconut oil…

Gluten Free Banana Bread

GlutenFreebananabread

One thing I think we all have in common is the desire to recreate our mother’s banana bread – gluten-free. I have fond memories of eating a warm, fresh slice of banana bread in my childhood kitchen, looking to my mom with such admiration for her cooking abilities. Who knew that baking banana bread qualified…
