So-Its-Halloween-Gluten-Free-Dairy-Free-474x600

While I’ve stopped accepting complimentary gluten free products to review on my website, I recently made an exception when Heather from So Lucky Gifts contacted me with an offer too tempting to refuse.  A gluten free, dairy free Halloween gift box containing c.h.o.c.o.l.a.t.e.  My boys made it very clear they’d take me down if I […]

Green Beans Fries_1

I learned a very valuable parenting lesson a couple years ago when I conducted a little McCarrot Fry experiment on my kids.  The big takeaway was this: brand names and packaging are very powerful weapons in a parents’ war on picky kids.  In my particular case, my 4 year old, Luke, is the picky eater […]

Gluten Free St. Patrick’s Day Fun and a Recipe for Shamrock Smoothies

Healthy St Patricks Day Recipes for Kids

  St. Patrick’s Day has always been a fun holiday for me, everything from pinching the poor hapless soul who doesn’t wear green (or orange!) to chugging more than my fair share of green beer back in college.

Gluten Free 101

  Nothing brings back fond memories of 1980’s childhood quite like that morning American staple known as “breakfast cereal.”  I’m not sure at what point we co-opted the term “cereal” to basically convey a mostly sugar-laced, artificially colored bowl of glutonium, but the word has found its way into the American lexicon…so be it.

Gluten Free Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup

  Okay, so someone (Erin, you know who you are) told me that it was national pancake day today, thus usurping my gluten free waffle groove!  Not being one to disappoint, I dropped everything and went into complete hyper-drive mode, because I KNOW pancakes.  I’m still waiting for the “national don’t eat crappy food” day; […]

Gluten Free Goldfish Tutorial_17

I cannot think of another processed food that has become more embedded in the minds of children than Pepperidge Farms’ Goldfish Crackers.  While they are not only just naturally entertaining in design (brilliant marketing if you ask me), they are the perfect size for kindergarten age fingers to expertly handle while they learn to count, […]
