Vegan Paleo Fudge Tracks Ice Cream - Allergy Free Alaska

Vegan & Paleo Fudge Tracks Ice Cream

Creamy vanilla ice cream + rich & decadent hot fudge sauce + chopped almonds = pure bliss.  Seriously. You just can’t go wrong with vanilla and chocolate.  I’m very much an emotional eater; I’ve always been one, although I’ve curved it a lot over the last several years (or attempted to). Some days though, despite…

Mom's Apple Pie Allergy Free Alaska

Mom’s Amazing Gluten Free & Vegan Apple Pie

Pie… it’s one of the best three letter words ever (especially when it’s homemade, slightly warm, and served with your favorite dairy free vanilla ice cream and a cup of coffee!). My mom’s homemade apple pie is the best, which is why her recipe inspired me to create my own gluten free version. This Mom’s Amazing Gluten…

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…

Dairy Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer (Vegan/No Sugar Added)

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. I tried everything from dairy free coffee creamers to canned coconut milk to any and every dairy free milk under the sun….

Zucchini Apple Bread or Muffins

I had such an amazing trip back home to Kodiak Island, Alaska! For 4 days I played on the beaches, acted like a tourist visiting the boat harbors, and caught up with old friends. It was fabulous. And in typical Kodiak fashion, it rained and blew sideways the first 2 days I was there, but…

White Cioppino with Kale (Seafood Stew)

It might not be officially fall, but it feels somewhat fall-ish here in Alaska. The temps have dropped, the leaves are falling, and I have the sudden urge to make Dairy Free Peppermint Hot Cocoa (a stevia sweetened version of it anyways) and wear my goose down vest. I’m sad to have to say goodbye…

Foolproof Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Who doesn’t love pizza?! It’s one of those timeless classics that never loses popularity and it can be personalized according to individual preference and allergies. Just because you’re gluten and/or dairy free (among other things) doesn’t mean you still can’t sink your teeth into a slice of delicious pizza. Or eat the leftovers for breakfast…
