Corn free egg free gluten free dairy free lime cookies

St. Patrick’s Day Part 3 of 3 – Festive Corn Free Cookies

It’s been a long few days of experimenting with different things, and I am happy to have a nice corn free solution for dessert. WARNING: This is a really long post due to several components.

I have say, I started this with the best intentions to have beautiful shamrock cookies. I had it all planned out, there would be icing, colors, and yumminess galore! Too bad the cookies wouldn’t hold their shape, but where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Organic corn free pasta pesto and bread

St. Patrick’s Day part 2 of 3 – Pesto

So, here’s the idea for this year: start with the Avocado Rice for lunch, then, incorporate this awesome pesto into your dinner. I suspect that you will really enjoy this sauce.

You have to know, I have been dreaming of pesto for some time now, and decided to get brave. I searched quite a bit for a pesto recipe that I could modify, but everything was calling for cheese and nuts (as a dairy free option). I didn’t have nuts on hand, and in all honesty, didn’t like the sound of it. Needless to say, I had to make something up, and well, it was really good. This recipe has such a nice, natural creaminess to it, as if there were a nice cheese mixed in. It’s really exciting actually.

St. Patrick’s Day Part 1 of 3 – Festive Green Rice

This is the first of three special St. Patrick Day recipes for this year. As someone who is part Irish, I have always enjoyed the creative festivities during March. This recipe works well as a lunch or dinner, and serves two nicely.

Corn free waffle bread

Savory Waffle Bread

Remember the Waffle Bread recipe I posted a while back? As promised, I experimented a bit and have an additional version to share with you!

If you’re living with food allergies, I can’t encourage you enough to get brave and experiment in your kitchen. If you’re new to cooking or baking, experiment on recipes that you have mastered. For example, take a basic pancake recipe, and experiment with adding cinnamon and nutmeg. Small changes can make BIG differences, and this recipe is an example of that.

For Nightshade Free & Low Histamine: Use a custom savory blend instead of the Bragg season blend.
For Vegan: Use organic maple syrup instead of honey. Read More

Organic red potatoes quartered and cooked

Quartered Red oh-so-delicious Potatoes Recipe

I have a feeling that potatoes, like pizza, are simply loved by most children, no matter what the country of origin. Our kids love all things potatoes, which has given me the freedom to introduce different flavor profiles to them, including curry and turmeric. This rendition of our quartered potatoes is by far one of their favorite.

You can mix these in a bag, similar to a shake and bake style, or you can season in the pan directly. I tried it both ways, and in all honesty, I didn’t see a huge difference in the two batches.

Failed Not Brownie

Failed Not Brownie

So, I just want to give you a heads up, you know, as “your friend in the kitchen” should…

The kids and I wanted to do something special to celebrate March 4th, (3 x 4 = 12)…

We had these great ideas of cakes, cookies, smoothies, basically, sugar!

So we settled on a trio of things – a white brownie (not brownie) frosting, and then a layer of chocolate brownie, and maybe even have some peppermint in there too! So of course, we made the not brownie first. It’s essentially a regular brownie without the cacao, and a little extra sugar. We mixed it, we baked it, and waited with anticipation. Sadly, it was awful. It tasted like a bad greasy muffin. So remember… DON’T try this at home.
