Knee Slappin’ Good Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins*

I have never had a better blueberry muffin in my life.  Not with dairy, not with eggs and certainly not with gluten. Now, the fact that I was on the modified elimination diet when I made them may have had a teeny tiny influence on my lust for these beauties, but I really don’t think […]

Creamy Cucumber Salad (corn-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, sugar-free)

Creamy Cucumber Salad

I’ve been thinking a lot about my 96 year old grandma lately.  She and I have always been really close but sadly, we live over 1,000 miles apart and I haven’t been able to see her in nearly 3 years.  I’ve always been compared to my grandma, mostly by our similarly strong personalities but the […]

Gluten Free and Allergy Free Art Supply List

Art_Class_Supplies

I can not stress the importance of gluten-free art supplies enough, especially for the preschool set.  Little ones are notorious for putting anything that is not intended to be eaten straight into their mouth (see exhibit A, below). And don’t think you’re off the hook if you have older children. Kids are funny little people, much […]

Dye-Free Batman Cake

Dye-Free Batman Cake

Okay, if you want to get technical about it, this really isn’t a “cake” per se, but rather a cupcake tower that looks like a tiered cake.  I made this for Luke’s 4th birthday party on Saturday, after dreading how I would pull off a Batman cake without the use of artificial colorings (namely the […]

Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free Hamburger Buns (and a Giveaway!)

Canyon Bakehouse Buns*

Isn’t that a pretty hamburger bun? And yes, it’s as soft and moist as you might be imaging it to be. While I couldn’t eat any of the buns from the complimentary package I recently received from Canyon Bakehouse for this review, I know how moist and fluffy they are because I was able to […]

Weekly Menu Plan, Rattlesnake Huntin’ (and a Giveaway!)

Rattlesnake Sign

I just love the first week of summer vacation, don’t you? No more of the hectic morning rush out the door to get to school and no more packing gluten free, allergen free lunchboxes!  Instead, I’m now quietly sipping green smoothies on the patio, listening to the birds chirp their little songs and tending to […]

Mama K’s Aromatic (and gluten free!) Play Clay, A Review and Giveaway

MKplayclay-brochure-0909

If you are the mother of a gluten free and/or food allergic child, then you know how important it is to have a safe play dough for your kiddos (if you are brand new to the gluten free lifestyle, please note that Play-Doh™ is NOT gluten free and neither is Crayola Dough). Why does that […]

Homemade Ketchup (Corn-Free)

Corn-Free-Ketchup

I’m not sure if it’s ketchup, catsup, or any other bizarre spelling, but if you are the parent of a child under the age of 10, then you always make sure that you NEVER run out of this key ingredient.  My kids put this stuff on everything, even foods that just don’t seem to make […]

Tips For Getting Your Kids To Embrace Whole Foods

easyglutenfreeliving-150px

Photo Credit If getting your kiddos to eat their fruits and veggies makes wrestling a wild hog to the ground look easy by comparison, trust me, you are not alone!  I have learned many things since I ventured into the great unknown called parenthood, but nothing more than food, nutrition and society’s inherent and deep […]
