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. […]

Baked! Nacho Cheese Doritos are Gluten Free!

BAKED_DORITOS_NACHO_CHEESE_Flavored_Tortilla_Chips

I pretty much hit the jackpot today at the grocery store. I go in for a bell pepper and 3 hours later I emerge with Nathan’s Famous Beef Franks and (almost) the original Nacho Cheese Doritos… both Gluten-Free! This is exactly why Mike does most of the grocery shopping in our house… I could be […]

Ore-Ida Fast Food French Fries

OreIda

We have been using the Ore-Ida Extra Crispy Fast Food French Fries, which are gluten free, for a few months now when I need to grab something that looks “authentic” for Sam and Luke’s occasional “Happy Meal” treat. Normally, I like to bake my own potato wedge-style fries, with the skin still on, but they […]

Nathan’s Famous Beef Franks Are Now Gluten-Free!!

Nathan's1

This is so exciting! Even though I have never actually had a Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog before, I have wanted to try one ever since I knew that I couldn’t! Am I the only one who thinks that way? I read about this last night but could not find any information to verify it so […]

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 […]

Speake Family Christmas

Here is a clip from a local (Albuquerque, NM) family’s holiday light display, The  Speake Family Christmas. We went to see it tonight and all Luke could say was,  “O.H. M.Y. G.O.S.H…,  O.H. M.Y. G.O.S.H!…” To hear a 2 year old scream out “Oh my gosh” is hysterical. All Mike and I could say was, […]

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 […]

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 […]
