Easter Cupcakes

Easter Cupcakes

Yesterday, Luke and I made cupcakes for his class Easter party so we thought we would show you our handiwork! I use the Better Crocker GF Cake Mixes because they are easy and predictable when I am short on time.  I hope to start working on finding some good scratch recipes over the coming months […]

Rubber Eggs, A Science Experiment Gone So So Wrong

On a recent trip to a local teachers supply store, I picked up a book titled, “Kid Concoctions, Creations and Contraptions” by Robynne Eagan. The book appealed to me for a few reasons. As I was flipping through it to see if I would want to buy it, I eagle eyed a few naturally gluten-free […]

WOW! What an amazing giveaway this has been! It is nice to know that I am not alone in my struggle to come up with creative lunchbox meals for my boys… and my quest to find the “perfect” lunchbox solution! I had a lot of fun this weekend cleaning out all of our old lunchboxes, […]

Gluten-Free Monster Truck Birthday Cake

I will go into this later but I had so much fun today at my “Stage Cakes” cake decorating class that I wanted to show all my GF and Food Allergy mom friends our potential in making fun and safe birthday cakes for our precious children. There are definitely some flaws if you are looking […]

You are gonna LOVE this! I signed up for the Easylunchboxes.com Newsletter after I totally fell in love with this lunch box system and guess what I found in my email inbox today?? A Newsletter! Warning: You MUST laugh at my joke, even though it really isn’t funny, or even a joke for that matter. […]

Easy Lunchbox System Review and Giveaway

I cannot even BEGIN to tell you how thrilled I am with this lunchbox system!! Before I go into the specifics of the Easy Lunchbox System though, I need to vent. I kid you not, I am overflowing with lunchboxes and containers! I have never found a “one size fits all” solution to packing the […]

Jumping through the Pringles Loophole

popbox7

I know that Pringles (which are NOT gluten-free) as well as many other mainstream chips are just not good for you, you will get no argument from me on that one. However, raising a child with celiac disease can be very difficult when it comes to social situations, as any parent with a child that […]

Glazed Doughnuts

I made these doughnuts a few weeks ago for Sam’s Flag Ceremony at school. His class was in charge of the ceremony and his teacher was going to buy doughnuts for the class to have as a treat afterward. Mind you, this was during the same period of time as the “Magic Wand” Friday Fun […]

Amy’s Gluten-Free Non-Dairy Mac and Cheese Review

amys-dairy-free-mac-and-cheese

So in case it hasn’t been made clear yet, I like trying new things. Especially when it comes to innovative food substitutions! I haven’t done a lot of dairy-free/vegan posts because I try to avoid straight-up soy when possible. My mom is a breast cancer survivor and I prefer to not eat plant estrogen, “just […]

“Tricky” Chocolate Pudding

I blame this recipe for my youngest child’s O.B.S.E.S.S.I.O.N. with chocolate! Luke was my smallest baby, at 7 lbs. 13 ounces and 21″ long. That may not seem “small” for a newborn, especially one that was born 2 weeks early, but Sam was 9 lbs. and 23-inches long! Sam never lost an ounce after he […]
