No Churn Vanilla Icecream

Okay… I’m going to burst a few bubbles right away, this recipe is not dairy free, paleo or SCD.  It’s made with good ole heavy cream, and it’s unbelievably simple and delicious. Only 3 ingredients in the recipe ya’ll! Anyone can do this.

This is my rendition of a Martha Stewart recipe.  I think it popped up on Pinterest and I was intrigued to make it, within my food restrictions.  Luckily for me, I can handle good quality heavy cream in moderation.

So, it’s the holidays and this is the perfect accompaniment to all of those pies and desserts.  Make it ahead of time and it will be one less thing to worry about the day of.

No Churn Vanilla Icecream

  • 2 cups heavy cream (organic and grass fed if possible)
  • 2/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract (use the good stuff!)
  1. Whip your heavy cream to stiff peaks.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir in about 2 tablespoons of the whipped cream into the honey and vanilla.  This allows the honey to soften and it will more easily combine with the whipped cream.
  3. Gently fold the honey into the whipped cream.
  4. Pour into a loaf pan, cover with plastic wrap and freeze overnight for best results.
  5. That’s it! Enjoy.

Here’s a little preview of the next recipe I’ll be sharing! Caramel Apple Crisp, topped with my No Churn Vanilla Icecream.

I had to snap the photo pretty quickly, because my apple crisp was hot out of the oven and I was running out of daylight.  I’m not sure about where you all live, but here in Maryland it is dark by 5 o’clock these days! Anyways, the crisp recipe will be up this week, along with a roundup of all of my Thanksgiving recipes. So check back for more!

Many blessings,

3 Ingredient Chocolate Buttercream

I was just informed that today is National Chocolate Day! So I decided to quickly finish this post to share with you today. My friend Ashley over at Kitchen With A View, shared this delicious looking Campfire Bark recipe today.  Her blog is not gluten free, but she shares alot of real food recipes, insightful writing and movie reviews by her awesome hubby Chris. Super cute couple and blog, oh and today happens to be her birthday, so be sure to check her out!

Last week we celebrated my sweet daughter’s 2nd birthday! As I made her cake, I realized I had yet to post this incredibly simple and delicious buttercream that I make all of the time.

This is my go to frosting, and has never failed me. Because the ingredients are equal parts, you can make this recipe for one cupcake or multiply to frost a large cake.

Bottom line, this recipe is easy and healthy! (or healthier, should I say…)

3 Ingredient Chocolate Buttercream

  • 1/2 cup room temperature butter*
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  1. Combine all ingredients in bowl.
  2. Whisk by hand or use an electric mixer to whip until light and fluffy.
  3. Immediately use to frost cake/cupcakes/eat by the spoonful (no judgement here).

*for a dairy free version use coconut oil or organic shortening in place of the butter.  Just know that coconut oil is temperamental depending on the temperature.  If it is warmer that 76 degrees your frosting will not set, as that is the temperature in which coconut oil liquefies.

I’m hoping to get up a candy recipe for ya’ll this week.  I plan on doing a candy swap with my kids.  Homemade cookies, candies, stickers, and dollar store finds will be traded with my kids for their super (not) healthy Halloween candy!

Oh and does anyone happen to have any last minute costume ideas (for me). I’m attending a grown up costume party this weekend and am completely stumped…. comment below with your costume ideas pretty please :)

Blender Waffles

I don’t make my waffles any other way these days.  Whipping up the batter makes for a quick and fluffy  gluten free waffle.  This has been my go-to recipe for the past few months… sometimes I add some cinnamon and extra vanilla.

This recipe makes alot, which is great. I love leftover waffles.  I store them in a ziplock in the freezer.  The kids can just take them out during the week and pop into the toaster for breakfast. Easy Peasy!

Blender Waffles

  • 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk (up to 1 1/4 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour, packed
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  1. Turn on waffle iron, grease with coconut oil or cooking spray.
  2. Place all ingredients in blender.  Blend until smooth.
  3. Check consistency, it should be thick but pour-able.  Add more coconut milk until it reaches the right consistency. (At most 1/4 cup more)
  4. Pour batter into heated waffle iron.
  5. Serve warm with Coconut Caramel Sauce or Quick Blueberry Sauce!

Yields 18-20 regular size waffles (not Belgium)

We are adjusting to farm life over here, we now have 35 chickens and 6 goats.  The kids are just having a blast with the animals, I can barely drag them inside to do homework or eat dinner!

If you are interested in seeing more of my family farm pics and day to day food photos, be sure to follow me on Instagram @glutenfreefix.

I’ve got a lot more recipes lined up to post, now that the kids are back in school, I’ll be dedicating a little bit more time to the blog!

So, where the heck have I been??

You may have noticed I’ve been MIA for several months, but don’t you worry, I was not sick. Yay! I’m actually doing better than I have in years… still med free and managing my Crohn’s with my diet (SCD), acupuncture and chiropractic care.  I even added in massage therapy into the mix, for relaxation and overall better health….. or maybe just an hour break from the kids :) Either way, it’s been good for me.

So, where have I been?

Some very exciting things have been happening this past year.  A very big project has kept me insanely busy. But, I’m happy to say that I am back and committed to posting regularly to Gluten Free Fix!! I’ve got lots more recipes, tips, tricks, giveaways, and tons more fun stuff to look forward to so stay tuned. If you’d like to keep up on a regular basis you can find me here:

Oh yeah, and that very big project… Well, it has been designing and building our new home from the ground up. It’s my dream house, and I’m very lucky to have the hardest working husband ever, to whom I’ve been married to for 10 years!!

Jason and I celebrated our anniversary last week by going to an amusement park and riding roller coasters together for the first time since we have been married. He then surprised me by taking me to my favorite restaurant, Komi. If you ever have the opportunity to eat there, please do.  You will never have a dining experience quite like it. Marriage is tough and takes work, but we are happier than ever and truly blessed. Love you, J.

I also hit a milestone birthday… 30!! Eeek. I celebrated with family and friends with a really nice dinner and even some dancing :) Then had a lovely little party at home with my kids, home made banners and sweet gifts galore. I felt very blessed that day, I just can’t even put into words how happy my family makes me.

So, now that I’m back at it I’d love to hear from you guys. If you have any specific questions for me or any recipes, variations or cool tips and tricks you’ve discovered, please share that in the comments below! In the meantime, here is a little preview of my birthday cake recipe, which will be posted next week:

Take care and check back soon for new recipes.
