Allergy-free Graham Crackers

This allergy-free cracker is more like a cross between a graham cracker and a Biscoff cookie.  Did you ever have those Biscoff cookies on a Delta flight?  I used to hoard them when on board - that was before they were available at the store.  This recipe is slightly adapted from Cybele Pascal's 'The Allergen-Free Baker's Handbook.'  It takes a little bit of work, but the results are so worth it!

Beef bone broth

I've been reading online about the health benefits of bone broth (rich in numerous vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants - especially calcium, magnesium and phosphorous, which are essential for bone health).  I order my grass-fed beef from a local farm, and the package always includes soup bones - yea!  It turns out the process is very easy.  Within 24 hours, I had 6 pints of delicious beef bone broth.

Paleo Turkey Sweet Potato Hash

Let me just say you have GOT to make this with your leftover Thanksgiving turkey.  It is beyond delicious.  I mean really, you can't go wrong with ingredients like bacon, turkey, garlic, and sweet potatoes. Plus, it's super easy, allowing you to get dinner on the table in about 20 minutes.

Allergy-free Cornbread Sausage Stuffing

My mom hosted an early Thanksgiving dinner this year, and she asked me to make a gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free version of our traditional stuffing.  She had found a great recipe on Martha Stewart's website that she wanted me to make allergy-free.  The first thing I had to do was find a gluten-free cornbread recipe to use, and I ended up using this one with the egg-replacer substitution.

Quick Paleo Spaghetti

This spaghetti recipe is a standard go-to in our house.  The sauce can be either quickly prepared or simmered all day if desired. It utilizes a store-bought jar spaghetti sauce, and I fancy it up a bit by adding meat and fresh veggies.  When it tops a bed of roasted spaghetti squash and fresh, chopped spinach, you have yourself a tasty, healthy meal.

Brown Bread

If you have multiple food allergies, one of the hardest things to come by is a decent-tasting bread.  Udi's makes some great-looking GF bread, but it contains eggs so it's not a good solution for us.  I recently found a recipe for 'Brown Bread' in one of my allergy-free cookbooks, 'The Complete Allergy-Free Comfort Foods Cookbook' by Elizabeth Gordon.

Allergy-free Aussie Bites

Have you ever had those 'Aussie Bites' they sell at Costco?  They are so addictive!  Unfortunately, they are not allergy-free.  I bought some the other day and, because they are so tasty, decided to create an allergy-free version that my daughter could have.

Allergy-free Pumpkin Spice Creamer

For those with a dairy allergy, Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte is not an option, even with soy milk, because the pumpkin spice mix itself has milk in it.  We figured this out by mistake last year when our daughter ordered one and had a reaction after the first sip.  Thankfully, Tiffany at The Coconut Mama has created a dairy-free, vegan, paleo version that is simply delicious.  

Please visit The Coconut Mama's post for the recipe. The six ingredients are combined in a saucepan over low heat until thoroughly combined.  The creamer can then be added to your favorite coffee.  

It can be stored in the refrigerator - I keep mine in a mason jar, and before adding to coffee I just give the jar a good shake.  Now everyone can enjoy a little pumpkin spice latte!
