Airline Travel: Be Prepared with Gluten Free Snacks

crackers

I got home from Ohio late last night and am ready to get back to business!  Traveling GF is quite different by airplane than road tripping with your own food in tow!  I have not been on an airplane in several years because the boys have been so small. Some things that I had anticipated […]

Last Minute Star Wars

Star Wars Cupcakes1

I made Star Wars themed cupcakes for Sam to share with his classmates for his birthday yesterday. Cupcakes are pretty easy and you can find great cupcake picks and liners in stores or online. I found the Darth Vader and Stormtrooper rings on Ebay. I made it through…I am done with birthday cake until July! […]

Star Wars Birthday Party

Wow!  Sam’s birthday was a great success and I am so happy to have that stress behind me! :-)  6 weeks of Death Star pinata making, Light Saber making and Cake sculpting and decorating.  I think I could sleep for a week! So, this is what I learned the most, cake decorating is HARD work.  […]

Full of “Hot Air”

Fiesta1

We went to the “Special Shapes Glowdeo” at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta last night. Personally, I think this is the coolest parts of the fiesta, hot air balloons in just about every imaginable fun shape you can imagine! At the Glowdeo, the balloons do not actually take flight, but at dusk the pilots all […]

Gluten Free Baby

I just saw this and thought I would share…  wish this was around a couple years ago when Luke was eating baby food! Tasty Baby Baby Food. Speaking of babies…  I saw something rather interesting a while back when researching “green” diapers for Luke’s sensitive bottom.  Did you know that Earth’s Best Tendercare Chlorine Free […]

Tom’s Bugles

Bugles-Original-Flavor

Remember Bugles?  The cone shaped corn snack?  The little chips that were so much fun to put on the tips of your fingers and pretend like they were a witch’s fingernails?  Okay, maybe that was just me. :-)   Tom’s Bugles, which I found at my local gas station a while back, are Gluten Free! The […]

Star Wars Birthday Party – Pool Noodle Light Sabers

Light Sabers

Okay, I have A LOT of pent up anxious energy over my 3-D Clone Trooper helmet cake next week!!  I know that in the end, it will turn out fine, whether the end product is the actual cake or some really cool cupcakes. However, I REALLY want to make this cake and have it actually […]

Udi’s Gluten Free Bread Review

PB and J

I think for celiacs this is as huge as the parting of the Red Sea! I have been blogging about Udi’s for a few months now.  I think I called their gluten-free bread something like…  oh yeah, the “Holy Grail” of the gluten free world.  I’m not joking either! The sandwich bread is moist and […]

Navigating A Birthday Party When Your Child is Gluten Free

How to Navigate a Bithday Party When Your Child is Gluten Free

Sam went to his first birthday party of the school year this past weekend.  Sam is new to this school and when he got the invitation he was really excited to go.  I noticed the hours of the party were around lunch time so we called to confirm that lunch was being served and when […]

The Death Star Pinata

Death Star 3

Whew…I think I have made a passable (at least to a group of 5 and 6 year olds) Death Star Pinata for Sam and his buddy Garrett’s upcoming Star Wars birthday party. This is what I used as a guide: Overall, this was pretty easy.  Especially using what was originally a soccer ball pinata.  It […]
