Coffee & Chocolate Chip Morning Zing Pancakes Recipe
Ready for an awesome way to start the day? I thought these coffee pancakes would be fun way to change things up around here. Now that the kids are much older, I say kids but they’re all teens, it’s safe to experiment with bolder flavors, including coffee here and there. Around here there are a few things no one really likes: baked asparagus, spicy food, and coffee. I’m blessed to have to deal with only a short list. It use to be a lot longer, however, by changing up how some foods were prepared, everything changed. For example: fried cauliflower 🙂 Back to the pancakes. If you find yourself in a creative rut, start experimenting with new flavors. Try things you may normally avoid… you may surprise yourself.

Recipe: Gluten Free, Beef Free, Corn Free, Corn Dogs!!!
Do you hear that friends???!!! It is truly the sound of success!!!! You see, back in the day, before we knew about the wheat allergy, the kids would often eat corn dogs. There’s a gluten free one made by Applegate, but, it’s beef based. So, our allergy kid hasn’t had corn dogs in may years. So, on day, I was online and saw a Tasty Video, and that’s when it hit me. I could make him a corn dog. It was like the clouds above had opened and angels were singing. I kid you not, there was so much singing and dancing and giddy all around joy in the kitchen when we made these. In addition to this post, we’re working on a video for the Youtube Channel 🙂

Corn Free Spiced Apple Pancakes
It has been quite a busy season around here, but we must keep moving forward 🙂 We’ve been working on several collaborations right now, and this is one of them. We’ve teamed up with Hannah from Positively Pure Food. She has an AMAzing Instagram Profile, here’s the link. Like me, Hannah creates awesome allergy friendly recipes, so be sure to follow her for yummy ideas.
Together, we decided to come up with holiday CORN FREE pancakes. That’s right folks. Hold on to your seats. While most of you don’t have a corn allergy, those of you that do understand how difficult it can be to source safe ingredients and then get said ingredients to work together to form something just right. Both Hannah and I put in a lot of time and energy to deliver what we feel are delicious, enjoyable, and safe recipes. For all of my corn free friends out there, enjoy yourself. Indulge yourself.

Corn Free Tuna Lunches
It’s not often that I get to share my food with you, but today I will. I think I generally don’t because I see it as too simple, or sometimes a bit too out there, even for people with food allergies. I’m also fully aware that I have the strangest eating patterns. I think it’s how I cope with the disease. Many of you out there I’m sire know exactly what I’m talking about.
The two dishes here are both tuna based, and were delightful to eat. For those of you that really know my story, you know that I’m allergic to just about everything I eat. I was given a choice – eat was gets to me the least, or starve to death. There are no tubes that can save me, because I’m allergic to the food solutions. I can’t do what most people do, because even water is an issue. After having these meals, I can say that I won’t be eating them again any time soon, however, for a few days, it was sort of nice.
First up: My take on a Tuna Noodle Casserole
Dessert Date Pasta (Sauce) Recipe
If you were to ask Kid Two, he’d tell you that I saved the best for last. He couldn’t stop raving over how good this sauce was. It was rich, deep, and tasted like dessert. However, he did tell me later that it’s like pasta or cream sauce, you can’t eat too much of it. Yet, it was soooo good, he still wanted more. Makes me giggle to myself thinking about it.

Corn & Nut Free Paleo Pancakes Recipe
Every so often, I try to make something that’s corn free, and safe for me to eat. Remember, corn isn’t my only allergy. I’ve been experimenting with tiger nut flour off and on for a while now, and officially, I can’t have it. It was making me really sick. However, before I had to remove it as an option, I had the privilege of enjoying pancakes one last time.
Have you ever had tiger nut flour? If not, let me try to describe it to you, especially when compared to cassava flour. Cassava has a weird fruity after taste in my opinion, and it’s “thin” in a potato/arrowroot starch sort of way. Tiger nut seems to have more body to it, and it looks almost like hazelnut flour. It isn’t a tree nut or legume, rather, it’s part of a tuber. There’s a certain thickness that it brings to the table that I feel works really well with the cassava flour. In terms of price, I think the two are about the same price. The tiger nut that we purchase from Organic Gemini may be a little more, but it is organic, which I think is nice. On to the real reason you came, for the pancakes.

Egg Nog Pancakes!
That’s right, you read correctly. Egg Nog Pancakes have landed at the table. Now, I must warn you, these are delicious, and the texture is just right. I also found that they taste great without any syrup. The syrup in all honesty made it taste a bit funny….
So, here are the instructions, and yummy pictures. To be honest, editing these pictures was very difficult. I sorta wanted to eat the screen. I call these “wannabe” egg nog pancakes as there is no actual egg nog involved, however, when you don’t have the luxury of drinking egg nog, you’ll take what you can get.
