A Grocery Store Adventure

Sun 1

While at my local Sunflower Market the other day I came across a few products that I have not seen before and thought I would share my findings!  I am also trying to keep an eye on dairy free products to experiment with.  Sorry about the quality of some of the photos, I took them […]

Colorations Gluten-Free Play Dough & Disposable Art Gloves

Settling in to Kindergarten

There is so much to consider when sending a GF child to school!  Everyday seems to be a new experience and I realize I have yet ANOTHER GF supply that I either need to make or buy! I have posted a recipe for GF Play Dough in the past and while it is great dough, […]

Gluten Free Snack Box for School

Gluten Free Snack Box for School

Just thought I would show the snack box that I make for each of my boys to take and keep at school. This saves lunch box space and they always have a “backup plan” should another child, etc. bring in an unplanned treat for the class that is not GF. Sam and Luke will always […]

Gluten-Free Play Dough Recipe

Back to School & GF Play Dough

I just received a phone call from Sam’s new kindergarten teacher.  A very nice lady who has never heard of Celiac Disease.  As I explained CD to her and sited Play Doh as an example of cross-contamination, her only comment was, “I don’t know what I would do if I can’t have Play Doh in […]

Gluten Free "Spaghetti O’s"

Gluten Free "Spaghetti O's"

In my pursuit of easing Sam’s transition into the GF lifestyle, I have, as an occasional treat; tried to make replications of some of his favorites like the boxed macaroni and cheese, pizza, Happy Meals and now Spaghetti O’s.
