    Gluten-free, vegan soft pretzels-Part 2

    Here is part two of the soft pretzel saga! This will give you choices if you have a gluten-free flour preference. The only difference between this recipe and the recipe in part 1 is the flour! The flour I use in this recipe is different (it has different ingredients) and also has the xanthan gum incorporated. This dough is tasty, no after taste but the dough is a little harder to shape and a little bit chewier than the other recipe in part 1! Try both and pick your favorite :)! The best-looking shape and easiest shape to form for these pretzels are a simple twist. I used the excess…

    Gluten-free, vegan soft pretzels-Part 1

    If you’re new around here, we have a number of food allergies/sensitivities in our home and I am always making and creating new things so that we can eat the yummy foods we love, without the harm. It’s a journey, not a destination, hahaha. This week, I created two soft pretzel recipes that both do not have gluten and both are vegan. The difference? The flour used! I found that this recipe had dough that was a little bit easier to work with, but it does have an after taste that I didn’t quite love. Other than that, the recipe also tastes the most like gluten soft pretzels (if you…

    Gluten-free, vegan cream cheese thumbprint cookies

    These cookies are an amazing treat! Who says you can’t eat amazing desserts when you have food sensitivities?! Even though there are ingredients that my family can’t have, I am determined to create recipes that are both delicious and safe for them to eat. I used our homemade plum jam (we moved into a house that had two plum trees!). Use any jam that makes your heart happy! Some Notes about the recipe: When making the indents on the top, I used a round 1 tsp measuring spoon. I barely indented the top (be careful with this step, if you make too much of an indent, the jam will leak…

    Dairy-Free Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce {make it vegan}

    This is one of my absolute favorite sauces! It’s one of the recipes I always have the ingredients on hand for, the one that I make when I want/need to make something good but fast. You can do so much with this. You can easily make it vegan. I served this on spaghetti squash noodles, so the meal was also gluten-free. I also served it with our favorite smoked chicken (recipe coming soon!). The end result is really good! You can also serve it with pasta (I used a gluten free penne pasta here). Or you can add chicken sausage on top. The possibilities are endless! This sauce comes together…

    Dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free fried chicken recipe

    We have a lot of food sensitivities around here, we just roll with it! When you want a piece of fried chicken, what’s a girl with a bunch of food sensitivities to do?! Make it, of course, haha. I am sure there are recipes out there, but this is one I made using what I had in my pantry and it turned out yummy. I spent my early years in the south, so I guess it’s an instinct that I use a cast-iron skillet and Crisco to fry things, haha. I use this thermometer to make sure the chicken is up to the correct temperature, but not overdone! Seriously, one…

    Dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free breakfast casserole!

    Having an allergy sensitive household can be difficult sometimes! If you have ever been to a pot-luck, you know the ones where you bring a breakfast casserole or some other dish that is full of butter or cheese, you know how hard it can be! Or, if you want to make a nice hardy meal in the morning quickly, put it in the oven while you get ready, and pop it out of the oven and have a delicious, filling meal, it can be tricky if you have a lot of food sensitivities to think about! My favorite way to serve this meal is…at dinner! Really, it’s a great recipe…
