Coconut pie crust (gluten-free, grain-free)

coconut pie crust

Sometimes, I’m thankful for food allergies. I know that if it weren’t for being forced to explore gluten-free recipes, I wouldn’t have ever discovered some of the most amazing recipes ever made. This coconut piecrust is one of those things. It’s certainly the most unconventional pie crust I’ve ever made, but for many pudding pies, and no-bake strawberry cheesecake (a recipe that I can’t wait to share!), it lends a delightfully coconutty flavor and texture. Plus, it’s SO easy to make! {Read More}

No-Bake Coconut Cookies

no-bake coconut cookies

One of my favorite gluten-free recipes, and go-to sweet treat has long been healthy no-bake cookies. But (ugh) since Gabriel has become highly allergic to some of the ingredients (mainly nut butter, and possibly oatmeal), I’ve been playing around with making different kinds of no-bake cookies. The winner? Behold, the no-bake Coconut cookie! I love it! It’s so simple – just two ingredients! Three if you want to add some coconut flavoring, vanilla, or cocoa power. These cookies are perfectly {Read More}

Things We Loved In March

things we loved

Every month, just for fun, I’ll be sharing a list of some of the things we’ve been loving recently. It could be books, or food, or appliances, or toys, or even clothing.  With spring (finally) here, it’s hard not to love, well, pretty much everything! The leaves are coming out on the trees, the skies are blue, the weather is warm. It’s just lovely! We’ve been taking advantage of all this by going on lots of walks, playing at the park, {Read More}

Today, I’m super excited to be sharing one of my new favorite gluten free recipes over at Stockpiling Moms. Yep – gluten-free strawberry scones! If you can make biscuits, you can make these! They’re just as simple, and even better, you don’t have to cut out circles, re-work your dough, and cut them out again.  I have to admit, I was really surprised by how delicious a handful of strawberries made these scones! With each bite of fluffy, slightly sweet scones, {Read More}

Natural Remedies For Coughs

Natural Remedies For Cough

How many natural cough remedies are there? Oh let me count them… Okay, not all of them. There’s no way I could list that many, but as I’ve done more and more research into natural health , I’ve been blown away by how many effective home remedies there are for the common cold. As I’ve said before, I tend to just let things run their course for myself, and if the coughing gets bad at night, I jut reach for {Read More}

Chicken Alfredo Pasta Recipe

Chicken Alfredo Pasta Recipe

Of all the gluten-free recipes we make, I have to say that pasta recipes are some of my favorite, and this chicken Alfredo pasta recipe is certainly no exception. It’s such an easy dinner dish. Alfredo say what?! Yes, you heard (or read) that right! Maybe I should explain that a little bit. I like to make a large batch of white bean Alfredo sauce to freeze in meal-sized portions. Believe it or not, it freezes really well, and then {Read More}
