Psoriasis is the pits and other TMI musings…

Psoriasis.  It’s the pits… literally.  Pits – like armpits.  Since I started this blog to help those of us with psoriasis and arthritis I just thought I’d put it out on the table, get it out in the open, and scream it from the top of a mountain: I HAVE PSORIASIS IN MY PITS AND…

Gluten Free Outback Steakhouse Copycat Bread

We had a great Memorial Day weekend.  I hope you all did too.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather here in south central Alaska.  I have tan lines (which is amazing… I am your typical halibut-belly-white Alaskan girl).  The lawn now looks wonderful thanks to my husband, and the girls even got to jump…

Campfire Potatoes (sweet potatoes or regular potatoes)

  “In Memoriam” by Lilian Leader Have you ever looked, really looked, at a solders face? Sometimes it’s young, barely an adult the hopes of youth still painted in its features. Sometimes it’s old older than faith, older than wisdom, older than time. And sometimes…sometimes it’s a bit of both all at once. Sometimes it’s…

Dairy & Sugar Free Vanilla Iced Coffee

I LOVE coffee.  LOVE it!  Before becoming gluten and dairy free I would always drink real dairy lattes, mochas, and I would always have half and half or another form of creamer in my coffee.  These days I drink my coffee black.  It’s taken me a while to get to this point.  Every now and…

Cherry Almond Energy Bars (Mock LARABAR)

  It is very hard to find gluten free energy bars made from wholesome ingredients.  That’s why I love LARABARS.  They are gluten free and never contain more than 9 ingredients (and most of their bars are mostly raw).  LARABARS are the perfect bar to grab and go! Here is a quick recipe to make…

Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chip Cookies… grain & gum free

I did something I don’t normally do today.  I told my girls they could eat as many chocolate chip cookies as they wanted to for a snack.  ;)  You should have seen the looks on their sweet faces!  They were so happy! I do not use store bought almond flour in this recipe (which is…

Breaded Fish or Chicken Strips… gluten & corn free

I am convinced I have had halibut made, baked, and fried just about every way possible.  My parents moved our our little family from Michigan all the way to the small town of Kodiak, Alaska, when I was only 9 months old.  I grew up eating fresh salmon, halibut, crab, and venison (meals people pay…
