Creamy Scalloped Potatoes – Dairy and gluten free


“What do you want for dinner?” Those without food allergies don’t realize how easy this question is to answer for them. Add the fact that you can’t eat a list of common foods in quick cooking recipes and coming up with an answer to that question just got harder. We’ve sort of been in a rut with dinner lately. We’ve had our “favorites” that are easy to make and taste good, but they are getting old. I’m hoping that you’ll start seeing a host of new dinner ideas here, as I’m determined to create some new favorites that we can all eat.

Last Sunday I picked up a new product, Daiya Vegan Cheese. We’ve tried the rice cheese. Ick is the only word for it, so I was a bit hesitant. I’ll be doing a product review post about it soon, but the long story short is I’m very impressed. It closely resembles cheese in both taste and texture. It is expensive, about $4.50 for a bag at our local health food store. I would say it’s worth it though. Try these potatoes and you’ll be standing in line to buy more of this “cheese”

Landon loves ham so we threw some cubed ham in with it, but it could easily be made omitting the ham.

Allergy Free Strawberry Banana Peach Smoothie

Looking for a refreshing but nourishing blend of allergy free goodness? We have tried for many years to come up with a good tasting and allergy free smoothie. Before I knew that I was allergic to milk I would go to Jamba Juice all of the time and I loved it, but it did not love me back! Now that we have found the recipe that has a great taste and is easy to make, we have been making it more nutritious by adding ingredients like fresh spinach. Surprisingly you can’t even taste it, but the color that it becomes is a dead giveaway. Adding the 15 leafs of spinach turns the entire smoothie a nice greenish brown.
