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 […]

Glee Gum Product Review

allflavors

I love Trader Joe’s. Every time I go, I grab a pack of Peppermint Glee Gum in the checkout lane. There is something so simple and “clean” about the packaging that you would think Marty McFly had just brought it “Back to the Future.”  Glee reminds me of Chiclets, but without all of the bad […]

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.  […]

Custom Choice Cereal Review

Custom Choice1

This is the coolest gluten free product, just because of the concept behind it! This is right up my alley, especially with the custom pizza labels I make for Sam’s pizza boxes or the GF Happy Meals. Packaging/presentation can make the difference between resistance, acceptance and fully embracing something new or different, especially for young […]

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 […]
