My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free, and many are dairy free. Going grain free can feel overwhelming and make you feel deprived especially around the holidays. I hope that in some small way I can help others like me on a journey to regain our health and still be able to eat decadent and tasty food. I also hope to help with holiday treats, holiday items that we all still want to eat. I have several holiday foods on my blog. This will be my second Thanksgiving going grain free and refined sugar free. However, this is the first year of my blog. I am busy in my kitchen trying to create a recipe for croutons so I can have a stuffing. I already have several items on my blog that are ready for Thanksgiving. I am still working on some and creating recipes for Santa Lucia and Christmas as well.
Time to think of Holiday Parties, Scandinavian Santa Lucia Festivals, Scandinavian traditional treats, and Christmas dinner. I am so excited to share my these new ideas and recipes with you. I wish I could say they are already written but they are not and I am awaiting inspiration from heaven above.
I am so thankful this year as last year I was slightly depressed as I had no idea what I would eat or what I would make to eat. Now, I am making several of my family size pizza crusts and I will freeze them for nights that I need something quick to eat. Normally I am not a fan of frozen food but my pizza crusts are delicious. This is my second Pumpkin Pie recipe on my blog. I think this is the one that I am making for Thanksgiving. I will be hosting this year as I don’t think it’s fair to ask someone to cook grain free when they have no experience with it.
I recently wrote a recipe for Homemade Marshmellow Fluff. After making fudge with some of it I had leftover marshmallow fluff and wanted to use it up. Inspiration hit and I thought what about adding it to Pumpkin Pie. Why not? Right? That’s what I did. It left a very delicate flavor. I don’t know that I can describe the flavor or the creamy texture that it created. Make this with my Pie Crust. You can top this pie with Whipped Cream or Homemade Marshmallow Fluff and using a kitchen torch roast the marshmallow fluff for an outdoor feel or touch.
