Super Awesome Pumpkin Bread {Paleo}

  I’m still on my pumpkin kick, and this time I made pumpkin bread! It’s lusciously moist, high in protein, and fills the whole house with the warm spices of fall. Not only was the texture spot-on, but I took Amy’s advice from Simply Sugar & Gluten Free and added orange zest and orange juice to the batter. […]

Carrot Cake Cupcakes With Easy “Cream Cheese” Frosting {Grain, Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Refined Sugar Free}

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 […]

Grilled Chicken Strawberry Salad With Poppyseed Dressing

It’s finally summer here and I am so excited to start cooking with all the beautiful fresh produce that comes along with summer! I am totally obsessed with this salad. I first had it a few weeks ago at Braum’s -something else I’m currently totally obsessed with- and I couldn’t wait to make my own […]

Paleo Pumpkin Cheesecake With Caramel Topping {Gluten, Grain, & Dairy Free}

We had such a long hot summer I am really welcoming all things fall. We’ve been eating lots of sweet potatoes after school and I’ve already made pumpkin pie, pumpkin cupcakes, and now pumpkin cheesecake. I’ve wanted to make a pumpkin cheesecake for well over a year now and I finally got around to it! […]

Pumpkin Spice Muffins With “Cream Cheese” Frosting {Paleo & Gluten Free}

  **You can now follow me on Google+!!! I just set it up and am still figuring out how to use it but just search my name, Cassidy Stauffer, and add me to your circle 🙂 Also, the frosting in the picture is not the cream cheese frosting that is linked below. Welp, it’s officially […]

Dry Ranch Seasoning

I don’t know about you, but I come across recipes all the time that call for a packet of dry ranch seasoning. This recipe can be used as a 1:1 replacement in any recipe that calls for a packet of dry ranch seasoning. If you are looking to make this into ranch dressing or dip, click […]

Real Deal Lasagna {Grain, Dairy, & Soy Free}

Tortilla Noodles   Zucchini Noodles As you can tell, I’m still trying out grain free noodle alternatives. A few weeks ago I made a lasagna with zucchini noodles and then last night I made a lasagna with tortilla noodles. While all of us really enjoyed the zucchini noodle version, hands down the tortilla noodles won. […]

Ricotta Cheese {Dairy, Soy, & Nut Free}

Dairy free ricotta on left, cows milk ricotta on right   *Next time I make this I’ll post a better picture, this one is very sad 🙁 This recipe was actually way down on the list and several weeks away from getting posted, but we loved it so much I just had to jump the […]

Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

I’ve been working on cinnamon roll cupcakes for quite awhile now. I’ve tried many variations, but this one is definitely the best. In most cinnamon roll cupcake recipes they just sprinkle a cinnamon sugar mixture into the batter, but I like this recipe because it adds softened butter to the cinnamon sugar mixture to give […]

Spinach Artichoke Dip {Dairy & Soy Free}

For some reason I’ve been really craving spinach artichoke dip. I wanted dip that was rich, flavorful, and creamy… a dip that if I took it to a party no one would even wonder if I brought it. They would just assume that someone on a regular diet made it using cream cheese, parmesan cheese, […]

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Lara Bars

  Welp, here’s another copycat recipe! I get addicted to gluten free bars and then I start thinking “I could make this and save some money!” That’s especially true with Lara Bars because at my local health food store they’re $1.49 a pop!!! One of the things I like about Lara Bars is the ingredient […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Milkshake {No Added Food Coloring}

You might be wondering how I got that beautiful green color without using food coloring. Well…. I used spinach! When I told my sister-in-law that I put spinach in my milkshake she said, “Eww, that sounds gross!” But I promise you, you cannot taste the spinach at all! Also, you don’t need any kind of […]

Ultimate Grain Free Brownies

*While I still like these brownies, HERE is my updated dense and fudgy brownie recipe that I make all the time and is my new favorite. I certainly have nothing against buying a gluten free brownie mix from Wal-Mart, but I wanted a brownie recipe that was just as easy and tasty using ingredients that […]

Cream Cheese Substitute Made From Dairy Free Yogurt!!!

I know I already have a good dairy free cream cheese recipe using cashews, but after I made my easy peasy sour cream made from yogurt I really wanted to make an easier (and cheaper) cream cheese the same way. At first, I had a bit of trouble getting the same thickness and texture as the small block […]
