GF LF Mini Cheesecakes

Mom was making her famous cheesecake for Thanksgiving, so I knew I would have to make my own version, unless I wanted to take a Lactaid pill.  Mini cheesecakes are elegant, and super easy to share. Perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Holiday gatherings or any get-together (or, not so elegant: hoard them all for yourself!). Simple to make gluten-free and lactose-free, just track down the “key” ingredients ahead of time.   I found...

GF LF German Chocolate Cake

My sweet husband had a special request for his birthday. I asked him if he wanted me to make him a Lemon Cake for his Birthday (a recipe I’m dying to try to adapt for me from Grandma Bea), but he said he would rather have something like a German Chocolate Cake.  Of course.  So, to the internet I go. I found a Betty Crocker recipe and had some of the ingredients on...

GF LF Easy Cheesecake

Nothing compares to my Mom’s Philadelphia Cream Cheese Cake, but I had to try making my own version to satisfy my cravings. I found a recipe for an Easy Cheesecake and modified with Gluten Free Grahams and Lactose Free Cream Cheese (both found at Safeway).  I also discovered that Dream Whip can be made Lactose Free with Lactose Free Milk, so top this cheesecake with Cherry Pie Filling, or make...

Gluten Free Lactose Free Lasagna

When I have a craving for something, I must make it myself or I risk getting sick.  If I want dairy, I have to take a lactaid pill, but sometimes that still makes me feel yucky. And I haven’t found a “gluten-free” pill (that’s a topic for another time)…and the last time I ate Lasagna, although it was delicious, it was Vegan.  Before that, the last time I had real...

Gluten Free Lactose Free Cinnamon Raisin Vanilla Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce

Early in October, I discovered pudding can be made lactose free with lactose-free milk!  Pudding mix is only corn starch, flavorings, and sugar.  I found a recipe for bread pudding on the back of a pudding box, and made it with Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread.  I also made a dairy-free caramel sauce to top it with for some extra richness. Ingredients Bread Pudding 2 1/2 cups LF milk 1 package...

Gluten Free Lactose Free Banana Cake

Now that it’s been more than a month, I can’t remember why exactly I was craving this cake.  Maybe I was thinking of my sister, Katie, who insisted on my Mom making this cake for her birthday every year to bring to class to share.  Or, maybe it was because my husband and I both went to the store on the same day without telling each other, both bringing home...
