Ranch Dressing

I decided to make a ranch dressing in preparation for making chicken, bacon, & ranch pizza. Below is the recipe I ended up with. I am sure I will post alterations to this at a later date, but for now: enjoy! Notes: B I used primal kitchen avocado mayo and whole milk dripped/strained yogurt. If … Continue reading Ranch Dressing

Crab Cakes (Low-Fat)

I have not introduced crab yet for LEAP. I was finally able to find lump crab meat with no other ingredients besides pasteurized crab (Whole Foods). I've combed through some recipes out there to come up with my own SCD legal recipe that also reduces fat (no mayo here). I am currently trying to increase … Continue reading Crab Cakes (Low-Fat)

Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie

This one is too good not to have its own post off of Instagram. It's filling and gave me a needed protein boost. Enjoy!

Coconut Pineapple Cupcakes

Updated on 11/13/18. The cake recipe has changed on the original site. I've updated the recipe below and credited the original site for the inspiration. I've also made this printable as one recipe instead of 3 individual recipes. My birthday just passed and I wanted to try making something for myself and my boyfriend to … Continue reading Coconut Pineapple Cupcakes

Carrot-Free Nomato Sauce

I recently accepted, after about eight attempts, that tomatoes do not agree with me. I already knew that most nomato sauce recipes contained carrots - which I cannot have. So, I set out to attempt making a nomato sauce by altering the need for carrots. I also do not use red wine vinegar and I … Continue reading Carrot-Free Nomato Sauce

Green Tea & Lavender Face Wash

After searching for a natural facial cleanser for some time now, I decided that making my own may be the best way to control what I am putting onto my skin. With all of my intolerances and new skin issues, this provides me with the flexibility to change up the formula as needed to accommodate. … Continue reading Green Tea & Lavender Face Wash

Monster Muffins

This is my SCD Monster Cookie tweak. I wanted something with a bit more substance for Christmas Eve and I do love Monster Cookies, so I felt that this was a natural progression. Enjoy! Leave a comment with your thoughts and/or any adjustments if you try them.

Turkey Meatloaf

My first SCD Thanksgiving meal was a success. The sauce pictured in the image is the cherry pear sauce located on the site. I simply roasted my veggies in honey, mustard powder, salt, and olive oil along with the turkey meatloaf (same time, stirring occasionally). Veggies include: celery, broccoli, string beans, and spinach.

Cherry Pear Sauce (Thanksgiving)

I can no longer have cranberries, so I decided to try something new for a similar sauce for Thanksgiving. It came out wonderfully, but it isn't very tart. If you're looking for tart, I would replace the grape juice with SCD legal tart cherry juice and reduce the pears by 2. I would likely also … Continue reading Cherry Pear Sauce (Thanksgiving)
