Chocolate Mousse Pie: Dairy Free, Gluten Free

One of our favorite desserts for the holidays is Chocolate Mousse Pie.  This easy pie is a snap to make and only has 4 ingredients!  Best of all, it tastes delicious.

Pumpkin Carob Cookie Bars – Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free

One of my favorite food bloggers, Jessica at Good, Cheap Eats, is experimenting with gluten free living to help with an autoimmune condition.  She posted a recipe for Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.  Of course, I’m always on the look out for good gluten free recipes, and these bars looked delicious!

Banana Cake Muffins: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free

I used to love banana cake.  However, once I had to give up many of the main components–gluten, dairy, and eggs–I figured my banana cake days were over.  But this week, after a little experimentation in the kitchen, I found banana cake can once again be in the food repertoire, and it’s delicious! (This post […]

Beef Teriyaki Burger with Spinach – Gluten Free, Dairy Free

With summer just around the corner, my husband decided to make some burgers.  We’ll probably make these and grill these later in the season, but yesterday was a chilly day in the 40s, so we used our George Forman grill indoors. I was envious watching my family eat these!  As soon as I get spinach […]

Slow Cooker Pinto Beans, Hot Dogs & Peppers

Problem:  Two hot dogs left in the refrigerator and four hungry family members to feed. Solution:  Create a new, frugal recipe using the hot dogs as an accent for flavor.
