Holiday Recipes, thanks to Mrs. Ed

I wanted to let you know in case you don't follow Mrs. Ed as religiously as I do....she has set up a blog post to list SCD friendly holiday recipes. It is such a great idea to get some holiday recipes together in one place. I plan on trying several of them.

Click here to link to her post.

Thanks Mrs. Ed!


  1. I am planning some scd Thanksgiving items around here too! We'll have the turkey, and probably some baked squash. I will probably make stuffed mushrooms - with homemade sausage and cheese and onions and stuff, oh yum. I am making pumpkin pie, and probably lemon bars. I might make some broccoli & cauliflower, with a little cheddar curry sauce to drizzle on the top. Having been scd for over 5 years, and med and crohn's free for all those years, he is now indulging in the occasional real whipped cream on his pie - made with heavy cream, vanilla, honey and cinnamon. The rest of us like Thanksgiving only for my mom's stuffing. Well, ok. That would be just me :) Wendy PS. If this actually posts, I will attempt again to share with you the coconut flour pie crust I have been using. I tried twice one day, and poof! Gone!

  2. Wendy, please, please, please share your pie crust recipe. I can't wait to try it!!

  3. Coconut Flour Pie Crust Recipe 

    1/2 cup salted butter, melted
    2 eggs
    Honey (to taste)
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup coconut flour

    In a medium bowl, beat butter, eggs, honey, and salt together with a fork, then add coconut flour.

    Stir until dough holds together.

    Gather into a ball, then pat into a 9" greased or oil-sprayed glass pie pan.

    Prick the bottom with a fork several times.

    400 degrees, 8-9 minutes.

    Notes: I make this fairly thin, so thin that I don't use all the dough. The first time I made it, I was surprised it "puffed" up and we didn't like it thick. Also, I think a little extra honey helps with that coconut taste. And lastly, when I baked the pie, I used foil over the edges.

    :) Wendy
