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 […]

Gluten Free Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip1

This is the BEST gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe that I have ever come across.  I kid you not, they are identical in taste to the classic gluten containing Toll House cookie! I found the recipe on Recipezaar about 6 months ago and they have held up perfectly each time I have made them.  […]

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 […]

Gluten Free Chow Mein Noodles, Take 2

Chow Mein

Whew, VERY busy day! I tried to catch up on my holiday “pre-baking.” I like to make all of my dough ahead of time, freeze them and then just pull them out and cook as needed. Today I got all of the peanut butter centers for my Buckeyes formed and frozen, and made 3 batches […]

Gluten Free Goldfish Crackers, part deux

Goldfish2

I think I have O.G.C.D. (Obsessive Goldfish Cracker Disorder). The recipe that I posted back in August by Roben Ryberg (founder of the famous Ms. Roben’s) for Goldfish crackers just continues to amaze people at how much they taste like the Pepperidge Farms version. They are super easy to make and you can even get […]
