Gluten-Free White Chocolate Chip Chocolate Cookies (NOT Dairy-free)

Since being pregnant, or maybe since I’ve been in remission, or maybe because my medicine is so good – I’ve been able to relax my diet.  I still try to eat gluten-free, dairy-free, and legume-free when I can, but when it’s not convenient, I have been making exceptions. I was craving these delicious cookies that I can’t remember baking since I was in high school. I found a recipe online...

Cranberry Scones with Orange Icing Gluten Free Lactose Free

If I knew scones were this easy to make, I would have tried to make them a long time ago. My scones rival starbucks and the co-op. They are delicious!  The key for me was not to over mix them, otherwise they will turn out hard and dry. This recipe is also easy to double, it makes 4 big 300+ calorie scones!  I made 8 for our Palm Sunday brunch...

Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake Gluten Free and Lactose Free

It’s been some time since I made this recipe (February 22nd!). I’m a little late on posting it!  My husband LOVES baked pasta dishes, and I had been missing alfredo sauce SO MUCH. I found a recipe that I used lactose-free milk with and dairy-free parmesan cheese and it was EASY to make and super delicious. I cooked the chicken with some olive oil and Italian seasonings.  While cooking the...

Ragu Pasta Sauce

My aunt Liza has a wonderful Italian mother.  She passed this recipe to my Mom who gave it to me. It’s really called Sandro’s Ragu. But my mom just calls it Ragu.  It makes a TON of sauce. It’s perfect to put over short pasta such as penne, or the recipe calls for farfalle. We used gluten-free penne. The garnish is grated parmesan cheese (optional).  We used Go Veggie! dairy-free parmesan...

Crock Pot Split Pea and Ham Soup

One of my favorite soups (that I can always eat because it’s Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and BEAN Free) is Split Pea and Ham.  I made this for the first time for a family night at our parish last week. I doubled the recipe below and added less chicken broth than it called for (mostly because all of it wouldn’t fit in my crock pot!).  Plus, this was super easy to make...

GF LF Stuffed French Toast

My favorite thing pre-chronic illness was Stuffed French Toast at the Best Western University Inn in Moscow, ID.  I would have it almost every time I went there, and especially on my birthday.  This dish is not for people on a sugar-free diet. While you can make it gluten and lactose free, it’s full of fat and calories.  Once I found a Lactose Free Cream Cheese, I was in business!...
