How To Make Cultured Dairy Free Sour Cream!!! {Paleo, Easy, Dairy & Nut Free}

  Last week after Lance was sick for over a week and having to put him on antibiotics when his eardrum busted, I started researching ways to improve gut health and counteract the antibiotics. Everything I ran across said to take probiotics (obviously), and eat fermented or cultured foods. I wasn’t really seeing anything I […]

Easy Vegan Dulce de Leche or Caramel Sauce

  The other day when we were at the store both of my kids asked for those little packages of apples with caramel and I said no because of all the dairy and unhealthy ingredients. I was feeling bad ’cause they both wanted them so bad, but then when we were at the health food […]

Egg Free Ranch Dressing or Dip {Whole30, Paleo, Dairy & Soy Free}

After about 1 1/2 weeks into my Whole30 I wasn’t feeling much better so I started reading the book again and saw that if you have any kind of auto-immune issues it might be helpful to cut out eggs. So I took the plunge and decided to cut out eggs for the remainder of my […]

Banana Chia Seed Pudding {Whole30, Paleo, Dairy Free}

  If you’re not familiar with cha-cha-cha-chia seeds (I couldn’t help myself, we sing that all the time around here!), they’re amazing. If you put them in liquid and let them set for a couple hours they soak up the liquid to make a thick, creamy, tapioca-like pudding. It’s a great way to get chia […]

Pesto {Vegan, Dairy Free, Paleo}

  *This recipe is another oldie but goodie that I decided to re-post it since basil is growing out the ears this time of year 🙂  I always dream of having a big, beautiful garden every year but in reality, basil is one of the only things I have ever successfully grown. And one of […]

Vanilla Pudding {Dairy Free, Paleo, Egg Free, Nut Free, AIP}

      If you saw my chocolate pudding recipe, you know that we used to love the Snack Pack pudding cups before going gluten and dairy free. While we have been enjoying my chocolate pudding for some time, I have been unable to re-create the luscious and creamy vanilla Snack Pack pudding cups that […]

Dairy Free & Paleo Queso With Loaded Nachos

I posted this queso recipe awhile back, but after making it again last week and serving it with these loaded nachos, I couldn’t help but post it again! It tastes like a homemade mild Velveeta cheese sauce and is O-So-Yummy, perfect for football season! Also, I listed the purpose and flavor profile of most of […]

Dairy Free Homemade Chocolate Syrup With No Refined Sugar

My kids LOVE chocolate milk, I think most kids do. But usually the first ingredient listed in chocolate syrup to make their chocolate milk is high fructose corn syrup, followed by water, sugar, cocoa, and then a whole list of ingredients that I can’t pronounce and have no idea what they are – EEESSHHH!!! So […]

Chocolate Cheesecake Tart {Paleo & Raw} + Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook Review

First off, the cookbook review… I was incredibly excited when I received an early edition of  The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook  by Ali Segersten  and Tom Malterre (from Whole Life Nutrition) in the mail – I stayed up and read it until I couldn’t see straight! It’s a large, thick book packed with over 300 gluten free whole […]

Easy Chocolate Pudding {Dairy Free/Paleo}

Me and the kids just LOVE store-bought chocolate pudding. Before going dairy free we ate the Snack Pack puddings and after going dairy free I started buying the almond milk chocolate pudding, but it’s just so expensive I hardly buy it. I’ve tried many chocolate pudding recipes over the past few months, and while they […]

Quick & Easy Dairy Free Fudge {Paleo, Honey Sweetened}

I wanted to call this recipe Quick & Easy Paleo Fudge, but since we aren’t strict Paleo around here, I didn’t know if chocolate chips were allowed?? Some of you may remember that I already have a dairy free fudge recipe on my site but it takes FOREVER to make. Several times this month I’ve […]

I wasn’t going to share this recipe until next week but I just couldn’t help myself! How could I put off sharing a rich and moist carrot cake with an EASY dairy and refined sugar free cream cheese frosting recipe? I didn’t get near as many pictures as I would’ve liked, but carrot cake is […]

Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake {Grain, Soy, Dairy, Refined Sugar Free}

I LOVE cheesecake! And if you add chocolate to it, it pretty much can’t get any better! For this cheesecake, the chocolate pecan crust and the chocolate swirl topping is from The Detoxinista. I’ve newly discovered her site and I’m loving it! The chocolate swirl is such a simple method but it makes the cheesecake look […]

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting {Dairy, Soy, Refined Sugar Free}

    I finally found it – the perfect vanilla frosting!!! I’ve made many vanilla frostings over the past few years that I’ve been happy with, but this is the frosting I’ve been dreaming of – it’s the whole kit and caboodle 🙂 This recipe is based off of my cream cheese frosting which uses shortening as […]
