TheGlutenEffect

If you have been reading my blog for long, or happen to ‘Like’ my Facebook page, then you know how much I love Dr. Vikki Petersen’s educational videos!  In fact, I have 22 of her videos on my video page.  Really, I love her and what she is doing for the gluten-free community!  More specifically, […]

Gluten Free Spring Rolls

This post is linked to September’s edition of  “Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten Free!” which is being hosted by Ali over at The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen.  Ali chose the theme: Ideas for Packing a Healthy School Lunch, yea!!!  I am really excited to see all of the fantastic ideas that will certainly come of […]

Vegan Cashew Cream Cheese, Vitamixed

Cashew Cream Cheese

I am feeling pretty darn excited about this homemade vegan cashew cream cheese I recently made, thanks to the amazing Carrie over at Ginger Lemon Girl!  Seriously, who’da thunk it?? Sure, vegans have known about the amazing powers of nuts for years, but, I am not a vegan.  I’m not even dairy-free (yet), so up […]

Amy’s Kitchen Gluten Free Burrito Review

1008_new_burritos

I made an impromptu stop at my favorite local co-op today (La Montanita on Rio Grande Blvd. for my fellow ABQ. peeps) and I hit the jackpot!  I have been looking EVERYWHERE for Amy’s new gluten-free burritos and today was the big day!  I only found the non-dairy version, but that was just fine by […]

Gluten-Free Mozzarella Cheese Sticks and a YES! Winner

Gluten Free Cheese Sticks

Gluten-free mozzarella cheese sticks, who’da thunk it? YES! Heck, even in my former gluten-life, I could not make a cheese stick.  I could make a mean hollow tube of fried bread crumbs mind you, but somehow, the cheese always managed to escape! Has this ever happened to you?  You roll your cheese stick in bread […]

Dancing in the Kitchen with Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef (and a GIVEAWAY!)

GlutenFreeGirlandtheChefCookbook

I am over the moon about my brand new cookbook, Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef: A Love Story with 100 Tempting Recipes, but not just because of the brilliant recipes that lie within.  The recipes, no doubt are amazing, I can tell that by texture alone (I have been without my sense of taste for […]

Gluten Free Pizza Rolls and Toasted Ravioli

Gluten Free Toasted Ravioli

Okay, here it is!  This is so exciting for me, I never imagined being able to enjoy toasted ravioli again.  Not only is the toasted ravioli in the above photo gluten-free, but it is also allergy-friendly too! This post is now linked to a great series that the lovely Jenn (a chemist!) over at Jenn […]

Gluten Free and Egg Free Pasta Dough

Gluten Free, Egg Free, Vegan Pasta Dough Recipe

First, I must apologize for the lack of noodles in the above picture.  I’m sure you can imagine the many uses for a plate full of fresh noodles that a 6 and 3 year old boy’s imagination could muster up (I’m still not sure how one ended up in the fishbowl).  I am also sorry […]

Mini Pops Popped Sorghum Review (and Giveaway)!

MiniPops

I am SO EXCITED about this review and giveaway that I can hardly stand it!! To all my corn-free friends out there (especially the itty-bitty’s), it’s time to throw a popcorn Mini Pop party! What the heck is a “Mini Pop” you ask?  Well, Mini Pops are an itty bitty corn-free version of popcorn made […]

Lunchbox Fun: Inside Out Sandwiches & Homemade “Panera Bread” Tomato Soup

LunchboxFunInsideOutSandwiches

The inspiration for this nifty little concoction came from the Taste of Home Magazine.  I thought this would be a great introduction to the joys of sandwiches for my kiddos, who are meat-sandwich adverse.  I really don’t get it, but they will only eat a nut butter & jelly sandwich.  Deli meats must be cubed […]
