Gluten-Free “Nilla” Wafers

nilla-wafers

I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome of this recipe! I had been playing around with various gluten-free recipes for copycat Nilla Wafers, but was never all that impressed with the results. I had actually given up trying for a while until Sam’s teacher sent home the Friday Fun Snack recipe of the week. The […]

Gluten Free Pigs in a Blanket

Pigs in a Blanket1

This is so cool. Personally, I was most amazed with the “Super Versatile Bread Dough” from a recipe I made with my new BFF, Better Batter Gluten Free Flour! This is the first time in years that I have felt “real” dough in my hands. I could not stop playing with it! Super Versatile Bread […]

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chex Power Sticks Breakfast Bars

Chocolate Chex

O.H. M.Y. G.O.S.H. That is all any of us could say after we tried these, they are that yummy! Think Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Power Sticks, just lighter on the chocolate. Luke nearly hyperventilated. I have my very good friend Mary to thank for this recipe, a variation she came up with for her son, […]

Tomato-Free Marinara Sauce

pickled beets

This is such a cool recipe! I have not made it in a few years, in fact I forgot about until I made a post and referenced a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EE). Sam used to have a playmate with EE and I got the opportunity to play around with different combinations of foods that […]

Crunchy Flax Cereal Bars

Crunchy Flax Bar2

I found this recipe on Recipezaar and with a few gluten-free tweaks, made a yummy new breakfast bar! 1 1/4 cups honey (I used 1 cup Agave Nectar but might reduce next time to 3/4 cup) 1 cup Peanut Butter (I used Natural Jif and added 1/4 cup whole flax seeds to it… this is […]

Gluten-Free Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Granola Bars1

Sam has been wanting some chewy granola bars similar to the store-bought Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars that his friends eat. I found the following recipe on a website called Make and Takes. Very cool website by the way! In case you are new to my blog, I should explain what I do for recipes. […]

Gluten Free Power Sticks Breakfast Bars

Power Sticks1

I love these quick and easy breakfast bars. I have been making these for about 10 years, ever since I found the recipe when I went to Weight Watchers years ago to lose those unwanted Freshman 15 I gained when I went to college. Only 4 ingredients that you can easily modify to meet your […]

Tracking Santa and Reindeer Food

gluten free, reindeer food, recipe, kids, Christmas

Last year, my sister told me about a website that “tracks Santa” on Google Earth. It is a really cool website for kids and parents alike, as it really connects to the kid in all of us. We are tracking Santa this year so Sam wanted to make sure all of his gluten-free friends out […]

Gluten-Free Essentials “Speedy Bakes” for Kids

IMG(2)

I am very excited about this product. So much so, I just may have to go buy myself an Easy Bake Oven! Seriously, I bought the Girl Gourmet Cake Bakery as a gift to myself for my birthday! It was actually after my review of the Girl Gourmet Cake Bakery that I was asked if […]

Homemade Gluten Free “Nestle Crunch” Candy Bars

Rice Dream Crunch4

I got the idea for this the day I was working on my GF Rice Crispies post and dipping my Buckeyes in chocolate at the same time. A light bulb went off… I wonder how it would work out to make my own GF “Nestle Crunch” candy bar with chocolate and the Erewhon Crispy Brown […]
