Allergen-Free Halloween Candy List 2014

September 12, 2014

Contributed by: Jonathan Glick

Halloween is right around the corner. The holiday of sugar, sugar, and more sugar. Not that I’m complaining. But living with food allergens doesn’t allow for an impulsive sugar fix.
We can’t just go into a store wanting some candy without reading every single label only to find there isn’t anything we can have. Yep, I’ve been there too.
Out of my own frustration I compiled two lists of Allergen-Free Candy for Halloween. One without gluten, casein...


Peach Pecan Cake – dairy free, gluten free, soy free, vegan optional

August 31, 2014

I bought some yellow peaches yesterday from my favorite stand at the farmers market, a local grower 3 hours from us, and made this cake inspired by Ina Garten’s recipe.

Peach season is almost over. Be still my heart. I love peaches and have no problem eating a few in one sitting. The juicier, the better. Peaches are a bakers true friend. They never disappoint, and certainly didn’t disappoint in this peach cake with pecans.

My 13-year-old son helped me...

Raw Blueberry Tartlets

This recipe is from The Golden Door Spa. I had to get the recipe because it is the perfect summer no-bake dessert. I will admit I have been feeling pretty lazy with all the hot days, but not lazy enough to make dessert!

Raw dessert may be your new thing after you try this refreshingly light dessert.  With blueberries at their peak of the season...


Peach Crostata – gluten free, dairy free, soy free

July 25, 2014

I made this peach crostata recipe last night, served warm, for movie night with the family. Forget the popcorn when you have peach crostata!

With all the sweet peaches at the farmer’s market, I couldn’t resist to buy a basketful. There is something so comforting about fruit-filled desserts. Peaches are one of those fruits that can go so well in many recipes. I personally love to add it to my homemade bbq sauce, pancakes, kale salad, and a sauce for...


Bean Salad – gluten free, vegan

July 12, 2014

You know when you just feel too lazy to go near the oven? Yep, it’s one of those days.

Here I’m sharing a light and healthy bean salad that is a quick lunch or dinner. It will taste even better if you make it a day or two ahead, so that the beans soak in the flavors of the dressing.

I reuse glass jam jars for homemade salad dressings. I find it’s SO much easier to just add my...
