  • Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies (With A Twist)

    One cannot have enough cookie recipes. Sometimes I’m in the mood for double chocolate chip cookies and sometimes I’m in the mood for peanut butter cookies. This time though, I had a hankering for classic chocolate chip cookies. We’ve redefined the word classic in our house. We take classic and twist it four times. Once to make it gluten-free, a second time to make it dairy-free, a third time to make it egg-free, and a fourth time to make it a little bit healthier. I jumped ...
  • Peanut Butter & Chocolate Smoothie

    In case you haven't noticed, I’ve basically given up refined sugars. It was a really hard thing for me to do, but now that I’ve done it, my life has changed. I finally see food as a source of energy. I finally taste the sweetness of real food. I find it much easier to get through the day with two wild lovely ones running around now that I don’t rely on refined sugars to give me a false burst of energy mid-afternoon (only to crash in a pile of crayons half an hour later). ...
  • Chocolate fRAWsty (or Fudgesicles)

    I am excited to share a RAW food recipe with you! So what does the term ‘raw food’ really mean? I’m sure some of you reading this post are thinking, Well it’s obviously sushi. Really? Maggie’s going to post a sushi recipe? I thought she was vegetarian. And a few of you are probably thinking, Well it’s obviously fruits and veggies right? Anyone can do that. Cut them up, put them in a bowl, serve them with some ranch dip, and you’ve got raw food. Geez, thanks Maggie. ...
  • Chocolate Cereal Bars

    Craving chocolate, but it’s breakfast time? I’ve got just the thing for you. Personally, I like my chocolate to be dark. The darker the better. I think it’s because of the little chocolate buzz I get. Oh, and it helps to know that dark chocolate is a brain food! These chocolate cereal bars are an easy, nutritious, and incredibly satisfying nut-free snack for your little ones who are headed to school. But they’re also great for you when you need a chocolate fix but want ...
  • Frosted Sugar Cookies

    We made sugar cookies this week and it was oh so fun. I love baking with my kids and sugar cookies are perfect because the kids can get so involved: mixing, measuring, pouring, rolling out the dough, playing with cookie cutters, and then decorating. It’s the perfect afternoon activity. And then we get a sweet reward at the end! We used this recipe as our base, I made a few modifications (outlined in the updated recipe below) so I could make them egg-free and refined sugar-free. I ...
  • Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

    I’ve been on a bit of a cookie kick lately. I think we’re all in search of the perfect cookie, right? And right now, this is the perfect cookie. It happens to be a gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free cookie. I received two issues of  Cooks Illustrated for Christmas (thanks to my Mom). I’d never read it before and wanted to test it out before going for a full on subscription. Well, I am hooked. I’ve already learned so much from just two issues! Each article is FULL of ...
  • Chocolate Chunk Pecan Squares

    I think New Years Eve is a little overrated. I’ve never really been into it.  Even when I was a young, carefree, wild, and single girl I didn’t really enjoy it more than any of the other party nights in my year!  Do I sound like a total party girl?  You know it! A great New Years Eve these days - I've got two little kids who don't care if I've been up late carousing, they still get up bright and early - includes hanging out with people I love and it includes eating a great meal.  ...
  • Gluten-Free Gingerbread House

    Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Egg-Free Gingerbread House And it tastes (and looks) darn good!  If I do say so myself. It was definitely a big project, but Callum and I had a lot of fun creating our first ever gingerbread house! I used my recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free gingerbread cookies and it worked perfectly. The hardest part was finding a dairy-free frosting recipe to glue it all together. I asked my friend Heidi from Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom and she sent ...
