Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Maple Pumpkin Pie - Allergy Free Alaska

Gluten & Dairy Free Maple Pumpkin Pie

The first Thanksgiving that I was gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free was interesting. It wasn’t bad by any means, just different. I was going through a time of transition, an adjustment period in my diet, and I had to learn how to make my favorite recipes differently. It was actually my sister in law…

Paleo Animal Crackers

I loved animal crackers as a child. My mom would frequently buy them for me as a treat. I would play with them, bite a head off, play with them some more, dismember a bear… It sounds much more gruesome than it is, BUT admit it – you did it too! I wanted my children to…

I normally don’t take creamer in my coffee. Well, at least not anymore. I used to. Up until I changed my diet and couldn’t find the right sort of dairy free creamer substitute.

Raw Beet, Carrot & Apple Salad with Ginger Lime Dressing

Beets are not something I would normally purchase, so working with them was a new experience (but a good one!).  After a quick search online, I found that beets are highly nutritious (especially when eaten raw) and contain antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification properties.  They’ve even been thought to have anti-cancer benefits. All the more reason…

Hearty Curried Carrot Soup (vegan)

I do most of my blogging from my laptop at the dining room table, which is just off the kitchen near the glass doors leading to our backyard. I love sitting here with a nice big cup of hot coffee. I’m able to look out and watch the girls playing (either inside the house or…

Blueberry Coconut Butter

Blueberries grow wild in Alaska. We had tons of blueberry bushes in Kodiak where I grew up and {much to my mother’s delight} I loved to pick them! My friends and I would go blueberry picking and come home with our little buckets full of blueberries. We would fill the kitchen sink up with water,…

Kimchi Me Crazy (dairy free/Paleo & GAPS friendly)

My best friend is half Korean. When I was 8 or 9 years old I remember sitting at her kitchen table while her mom served us lunch. I was mortified when I discovered there was seaweed in my won ton soup. My friend recognized the look of horror on my face and said, “Eat it….
