Blueberry Bread


Gluten Free, Dairy, Egg, Nut, and Soy Free

I ran across this recipe on a blog called The Food Allergy Mama. I changed it just a bit of course, making it gluten free for starters. It was delicious and the Schnappi ate it all up! I think I want to play around with it some more and maybe add some gluten free oats to give it more substance. The bread should actually be called orange blueberry bread since it had a very distinct orange flavor. Either way though it is great!

Things we love- RP’s Gluten Free Fresh Pasta

I found out a while back that RP’s Pasta Company started selling their gluten free FRESH pasta at a store near us (Roots Market).  After calling Veronika and telling her one of our dreams had come true I jumped in my car and went to buy some fresh pasta for the first time ever in my life.  They make gluten free linguini and fusilli.  I tried the linguini first. It was so fast and easy to make (only 2-4 minutes). I just dressed it with a bit of garlic olive oil and some Parmesan so I could really taste the pasta.  It was soft, creamy, and absolutely delicious!! Now, since I have never tried fresh pasta before I had my husband and friend try it and they also couldn’t get over how great it tasted. They would have never guessed it was gluten free!

White Bean Soup with Quinoa and Veggies

Gluten, dairy, egg, and nut free!

This soup is very easy to make. I had all of these ingredients on hand and decided to make a comforting healthy soup. It’s actually a cross between a soup and a stew. What’s great about this is that it’s very versatile. You can add other spices such as cumin if you want a meaty deep flavor or add less stock and make it a chili. I love recipes that kind of give you an outline and then let you play around with it so it fits what you want.

Apple Crisp Recipe  (gluten, dairy, egg, nut, and soy free)

Today is Schnappi’s 1st birthday! I’ve decided to post her favorite desserts. That is until this weekend when I make her carrot cake cupcakes for her birthday party! (Will post that recipe next week). In the summer I replace the apples with peaches and add a little vanilla. If you like more crisp than apple then just double the topping recipe. Of course if you can have dairy replace the earth balance with regular butter. In order for it to be nut free make sure you use a nut free GF flour such as King Arthur’s baking mix which is also soy free. Enjoy!

Mini Gluten Free Asian Inspired Meatloaves

I was flipping through food magazines and came across a meatloaf recipe that cuts the baking time in half and also doesn’t have your meatloaf drowning in its own fat. So I had to try it. I wanted to do a twist on it though. Instead of the normal meatloaf I wanted to create one with asian flavors.

Things we love- Gillian’s Wheat, Gluten, and Dairy Free Pizza Dough

Who doesn’t love pizza??? My friend told me that one time she walked to her local pizza place to buy a little ball of fresh dough (did you know you can do that?!!) so she could make delicious pizza herself. I envied my friend’s ability to do that. And do you know how several grocers and markets have bags of fresh dough next to all of their yummy pizza fixings? Well, I used to walk down the aisle looking at the dough longingly, my stomach grumbling for a gluten free version.
