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!).

Homemade “Nutri-Grain” Bars

Nutrigrain3

I used to love Nutri-Grain bars, pre-celiac. I miss having something easy to grab for breakfast in the morning, that I actually like. I have tried all the GF cereal bars and while they are okay, they are not the same. I found this recipe and WOW! They taste just like I remember Nutri-Grain bars […]

My Gluten Free “Happy Meals”

My Gluten Free "Happy Meals"

Alright, I will share my secret for putting a big smile on my little ones’ faces… In December when Sam was diagnosed with celiac, one of the first things he asked me was if that meant he could no longer have a McDonald’s Happy Meal. I asked him what his favorite part of a Happy […]

Gluten-Free Play Dough Recipe

Back to School & GF Play Dough
