Strawberry Chocolate No Bake Cheesecake- Gluten Free and Vegan

No bake cheesecake is simply a fan favorite. Who doesn’t love no bake desserts? This Strawberry Vegan cheesecake drenched in chocolate ganache and topped with a decadent strawberry sauce is made with easy to find ingredients and will be loved by anyone- even those who are not vegan or gluten free.

Pressure Cooked Black Beans

Instead of buying canned beans I buy my beans in the bulk bins at WinCo. It is ridiculously cheaper than buying by the can and there are no nasty preservatives in them. 

Herb Roasted Chicken, Potatoes and Veggies. One pan dinner- Gluten Free, Dairy Free.

Anything that is herb roasted works well for my family dinners. I love seasoning meat, vegetables and potatoes, then letting my oven to do all of the hard work.  Having herb roasted meals often means that they are naturally gluten free and that makes a perfect, simple and inexpensive meal.

I recently made a sheet pan dinner, it called for pork chops, but I did not have any, so I improvised with chicken. It also had potatoes, but not a vegetable. I wanted to create a one sheet all stop shop dinner because I just don’t have time to mess around or wash a million pots and pans.

4th of July Cookies- Gluten Free, Dairy Free

These gluten free and dairy free sugar cookies are soft and chewy just like they should be. They are made with easy to find ingredients and it’s very simple to make. They are the perfect texture for cutting out with cookie cutters. You will find yourself turning to this recipe for all holiday’s and special occasions. The kids will love using the cookie cutters and decorating their own cookies.

I created this recipe during the holiday’s last year. Sugar cookies were one of my favorite cookies prior to going gluten free. I would make butterflies, hearts and many other festive designs for every occasion.

Double Chocolate Chip Blender Muffins- Gluten Free, Dairy Free

Blender Muffins have reserved themselves as a staple in my house. They are full of healthy goodness and are gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free and flour free. They take less than 10 minutes to throw together and then around 20 minutes to cook, so naturally I gravitate to them as a wholesome healthy baked good that tastes like dessert.

I don’t mind throwing them at my kids when they whine about being hungry, or need something to hold them over until breakfast is ready. They have protein, oats, flax and zero refined sugar. No guilt here.

Easy Picnic Foods for Gluten Free and Dairy Free Families

We anxiously have awaited the nice weather in the Pacific Northwest. We had a long and wet winter that seemed to linger on and on.

I am not a huge fan of summers having spent the majority of my life in the hot California heat. Here in Washington State though- the summers are welcomed and loved.

23 Gluten Free Dairy Free Recipes Dad will love

Father's Day is already this weekend. This year has literally flown by. With so much to do it seems like the days are never long enough. It's time to start thinking about what we will do for those special dads in our life.

My husband is usually pretty simple. I make him a HUGE breakfast of everything he requests and then a really nice dinner. For breakfast he always wants eggs, bacon, pancakes, potatoes- you know the works. For dinner he almost always requests Pot Roast (this recipe is currently only found in my e-book Cold Weather Comforts). A roast is typically a little on the higher end in price and it does take about an hour and 45 minutes start to finish, so it can be a little more work than a typical Sunday dinner. That is ok though because it is the day to appreciate everything dad or your hubby does for your family that day.
