It’s going to be another crazy week for me as I prepare to leave for Chicago on Thursday to attend the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo. This will be the first time that I’ve left my brood since embarking on “Operation Leaky Gut” and I have to admit that I’m a little nervous as to […]

Homemade Beef Jerky, a Giveaway Winner…and a Revolution

Homemade Gluten-Free Allergy-Friendly Beef Jerky

Homemade Gluten-Free, Allergy-Friendly Beef Jerky.  Easy to make, challenging to photograph (in an appealing fashion anyway)! I love beef jerky, but all too often the prepackaged variety contains wheat so therefore it is off limits to me and my brood.  I’m actually kinda thankful for that because it is not only easy to make, but […]

mealplanmonday_v2

I did pretty good following my first menu plan last week, I made almost everything I had planned on.  The surprising thing to me was how much less money I spent on groceries having a plan to follow, I think I easily saved a couple hundred dollars!  If saving that kind of money weren’t motivation […]

Homemade Worcestershire Sauce: Guten Free and Corn Free (with a Soy Free option)

Gluten-Free Allergy-Free Worcestershire Sauce

I should have titled this post “WOO-HOOcestershire Sauce” because according to everyone I had taste it for me, it’s that good.  In fact, I pulled out my aging bottle of Lea & Perrins (which is gluten-free) for a side by side comparison, and my husband said the homemade Worcestershire sauce was much better all around, […]
