Athlete’s Pasta Salad- gluten free, soy free, dairy free

Athletes Pasta Salad; Gluten free, Soy free, Dairy free Absolutely love this gluten free pasta salad made with a super light, zesty roasted yellow pepper dressing and veggies.  This flavorful dressing is unique with a base of roasted yellow pepper versus a typical mayo.  I came up with this gluten free pasta salad recipe last summer when my hubby was training for the Tempe Triathlon, hence the title.  It incorporates healthy fat from...

Pumpkin Spice Mousse

Pumpkin Spice Mousse, Coconut Whip An ode to fall.  I started working on my Pumpkin Spice Whip recipe last fall, and now I finally get to post it.  Hooray!  It can be used either as an addition your pancakes or waffles, a dip for other sweets, or to top your coffee and/or hot chocolate on those cool, cloudy days.  If you are making a Cake, this would be a wonderful filling or frosting.  I think I have done it all with this coconut...

Seasoned Oven Potato Wedges and Fry Sauce

  Seasoned Oven Potato Wedges and Fry Sauce I love fries but it is very difficult to get fries from a fast food place that isn’t contaminated with various allergens.  I also prefer not to consume all that oil, especially ones exposed to high temps, so this is the perfect solution. Make oven fries at home.  I know most of you think fries at home will take forever or you need a bunch of gadgets, but you don’t.  You just...

Roasted Jalapeno Dip

Roasted Jalapeno Dip   Currently, this is my favorite Almond Cheeze dip flavor.  It has heat from the oven roasted chili’s and some coolness from the cilantro, topping it with a little taco seasoning blend only amped the flavor.  This alternative to a dairy and soy filled dip is just so good, you won’t miss the things you shouldn’t have.   This would work well not only as a chip and veggie dip, but also...

Apple Salsa

Spicy and sweet, with a little bite to it.  This salsa is sure to please.  A mix of cilantro, jalapeno, onion, garlic, tomato and yes, apple!  If you ever make regular salsa a little too hot, you can just add some diced apple slices to cool it down.  Good tip of the day, store that in your thinker cap.         So in my little town, every year we have a Salsa Festival.  At first it was just thrown together, and sparse, laid out in...
