Winter Oreos: Gluten-Free, Dairy/Casein-Free & Egg-Free

Gluten Free Winter Oreos

While at the grocery store the other day, Sam spied the Winter Oreos on display. While I was hoping he didn’t notice, the bright red cream put him in a trance! So he said, “Mom, you need to make these. So and so in my class brought them to school in their lunch and they […]

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Sugar/Waffle Cones

Cones3

I had a crazy “adventure” this week! I say crazy because it is December and I needed a gluten free sugar cone and quick! I found out on Monday that Sam’s kindergarten class was going to be making a snack for their winter celebration. The snack was going to be a Christmas tree made out […]

Peppermint Bark

peppermint-bark11

GF Dad here. I’m sure you’ve all figured out by now that everyone in our home is effectively banished from Mom’s kitchen during the holidays.  There are some good reasons for this.  For starters, the rest of us are boys, which means we make big messes, don’t measure ingredients very well, and always want to run […]

Chocolate Fudge

Fudge

Okay, this is nothing spectacular, fudge is fudge right? Well, I just wanted to offer some suggestions for those who may want to make this recipe (or one like it) but haven’t because of the dairy. I made this batch with dairy but I think there is a nifty way around it for dairy free […]

Gluten Free Rice “Krispie” Treats

Erewhon_gf_main

I don’t about you, but ever since going gluten-free, Rice Crispy Treats have just not been the same since Kellogg’s Rice Krispies “left the pantry.” While there are some really good GF Rice cereals out there, the famous marshmallow treat of my past just wasn’t the same, “something” seemed to be missing. I presume it […]

Gluten Free Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

sc2

I have tried for years to find a gluten-free sugar cookie recipe that I could cut the dough into holiday shapes and bake them without the dough either tearing apart, or spreading so much in the oven that all 6 separate cookies merged into one giant undesirable blob. I found a wonderful recipe last year […]

Buckeye Candy

Buckeye Nut in Grass

I may live in New Mexico, but I hail from the great state of Ohio and in my heart I will always be a Buckeye.  What is a Buckeye you ask?  Other than the mascot for my Alma Mater, it also happens to be a poisonous nut from the state tree, the Buckeye Tree. So […]

Cinnamon Candied Apples

Candy Apples2

Growing up we always drove from Ohio to Centre, Alabama to visit my mom’s side of the family for Christmas. My grandmother made some southern specialties that I grew to love over the years (it was hard letting go of my “Yankee” roots!). Besides my grandmother’s Cornbread Dressing and Candied Yams, there were her Cinnamon […]

Gluten Free Gingerbread House

Gingerbread House1

The year Sam was born I started one of our own Christmas traditions, building an annual Gingerbread House! I used to buy one of the kits at the store and each year we had a lot of fun putting them together then taking pictures for our scrapbook. When I was the lone celiac in the […]
