  • Grain-Free Sesame-Almond Crackers

    I’ve been fighting a nasty cold for two weeks now. Every couple of days I get a little break where I feel close to my normal self. But this week I had a major setback. I woke up with incredible sinus pain (the day after Livvie’s 2nd birthday!) and realized I had my first sinus infection. A trip to my Naturopath quickly healed the sinus pain but the next morning I woke up with double earaches. Yes. Each ear was aching! Say that ten times fast. And so the blog had to wait this week ...
  • Gluten-Free & Veggie Chili

    Hallowe'en is around the corner and Diane from The W.H.O.L.E. Gang is hosting this month’s Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten-Free.  Diane's theme is Scared Silly.  She wanted us to create something using an ingredient we once feared. Well people, I used to fear beans.  I knew nothing about them and therefore never ate them or cooked them. Growing up my Dad and my sister and I used to sing the song Beans beans the musical fruit, the more you eat…well you get the idea. So why would a ...
  • Roasted Butternut Squash Dip

    Have you noticed that little kids LOVE to dip? In fact, who doesn’t love to dip? I find it so hard to avoid the dip section of the appetizer table. Most dips are made with dairy, which doesn’t sit well with me anymore. Sometimes I have to physically pull my own hand away from the dip. Seriously. Even though I know it’s not good for my tummy, I still really want to dip my cauliflower into that lovely little bowl of creamy goodness. So what’s my solution? I bring my own dip ...
  • Cookies and Cream Cake

    Move over Dairy Queen. Because we don't need your gluten, your dairy, or your HFCS. Look at this cake!  Look at the layers of yummy, healthy, tummy-friendly goodness. I made this delicious gluten-free and dairy-free Cookies and Cream ice cream cake for my Mom for her birthday. It was divine. My friend Heather is the ice cream cake queen.  She makes dairy and gluten-loving ice cream cakes on a regular basis.  So when I decided to make my first ice cream cake, I knew I ...
  • Rosemary Onion Crackers

    I really wanted to call this post Maggie's Gone Crackers. I recently had the chance to go shopping at Whole Foods (food bloggers dream about this) and I bought some really yummy crackers.  They inspired me to make my own.  Look out Mary! These aren't your every day, "Mommy can I have some peanut butter and crackers?" crackers, although I think they taste super yummy with almond butter.  They're a little fancy - whip up a batch next time you're having your friends over for dinner. ...
  • Quinoa Spring Salad

    It is salad season! The Farmer's Markets are bursting with mesclun mixes, fresh spinach, and arugula.  It's so fantastic. Sometimes though, I need a break from green salads in the summer.  And this salad is the perfect distraction. Have you tried a quinoa salad yet?  I hope you've at least tried quinoa?  It's such a nutritious grain, it's so easy to prepare, and it's so incredibly versatile.  Now is the time to give it a try. This salad would be a perfect accompaniment to ...
  • Let’s Do Ice Cream Cones (Gluten-Free & Vegan)

    It's been a busy week here in She Let Them Eat Cake land! One of my most excellent regulars is celebrating a birthday today and she has a gluten-free wish list: chocolate cake, cinnamon bread, pizza crusts, and sandwich bread. So I've been in the kitchen all week long (in between pirate play and preschooler outings).  Thus, a short and sweet (literally) Friday Finds for my faithfuls.  But I've included a really cute picture that should melt your heart, if not your ice cream. So ...
  • Tofu or Tempeh BBQ Marinade

    I love BBQ season.  It means warmer nights, get-togethers with friends and family, and Pete does most of the barbecuing! I've been enjoying this marinade for years!  I got the recipe from my Mom who got it from her brother (my most excellent Uncle Rick).  The recipe was originally a marinade for Flank Steak... However, I don't eat meat so we use it to marinate tofu, tempeh, and market-fresh vegetables. This recipe is worth making once a week during BBQ season, it's THAT good. ...
  • Gluten-Free Mushroom Gravy

    All family get-togethers require us to bring 'Pete's Mushroom Gravy'. This is the best gravy on the planet. It's so good that I almost didn't want to share the recipe.  You should also know that Pete is the gravy maker in our home.  Getting him to nail down a recipe is always tricky! We discovered mushroom gravy at the best restaurant we've ever frequented - The Candle Cafe in NYC.  That place is definitely on the agenda for every NYC visit. Many non-mushroom eaters have enjoyed ...
  • Sweet Talk with Babycakes

    Interview with Emily of Babycakes NYC I was super lucky to have a chance to sit down with Emily, the General Manager of Babycakes NYC.   I didn't actually sit down with her.  I did sit down... at my Mac... emailed Babycakes a question, and the lovely and friendly Emily replied (I'm sure she was seated too.) I've actually emailed Babycakes a few times with questions about recipes and the cookbook.  I found the replies were always timely and super helpful. So I asked Emily if I could ...
