apple crisp
Holiday meals are  just around the corner, and if you’re slated with bringing dessert, this recipe is perfect.  It’s simple and so delicious that no one will suspect that it’s healthier than the usual apple pie.    The filling is made entirely from apples which become sweeter as they cook. This is similar to what happens …

As promised, let’s get to the dessert recipe. After releasing the thought, “It’s just going to be a few months before I can get back to my favorite foods”, I became determined to find delicious replacements because it became real clear the dairy and egg sensitivity/allergy timeline had to be extended.  And then came the realization that real …
For me, making the ‘simple’ decision to go Gluten Free was definitely based on  health concerns and not because it was something ‘hip’ to do. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I had to give away a lot of food before it went bad.  I was told that I had food sensitivities, and I would have to refrain …
