Gluten Free Goldfish Tutorial_17

I cannot think of another processed food that has become more embedded in the minds of children than Pepperidge Farms’ Goldfish Crackers.  While they are not only just naturally entertaining in design (brilliant marketing if you ask me), they are the perfect size for kindergarten age fingers to expertly handle while they learn to count, […]

Printable Post   As a mom to two children with multiple dietary restrictions, I can think of few things more mind numbing than coming up with creative and healthy boxed lunches (that my kids will eat) 5 days a week, so I thought I would begin a list of links to recipes that I make […]

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 […]

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 […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free “Hostess” Cupcakes

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Hostess Cupcakes

Homemade Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free”Hostess” Cupcakes, why did it take me so long to try this?  I guess I forgot that “Fresh, Wholesome Hostess and Kids Go Together!” Did you notice the part about being fresh and wholesome?  I won’t comment on the “wholesome” aspects because I think we can all agree that we know that statement […]

Lunchbox Fun: Inside Out Sandwiches & Homemade “Panera Bread” Tomato Soup

LunchboxFunInsideOutSandwiches

The inspiration for this nifty little concoction came from the Taste of Home Magazine.  I thought this would be a great introduction to the joys of sandwiches for my kiddos, who are meat-sandwich adverse.  I really don’t get it, but they will only eat a nut butter & jelly sandwich.  Deli meats must be cubed […]

Dill Dip with Raw Veggies

Gluten Free Dill Dip1

The past two days have been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me as I’ve been preparing to set Luke up with a safe environment at preschool.  Preschool is a dietary-restricted parent’s worst nightmare!  Gluten and food allergens are EVERYWHERE and not just in the popular processed kid fare department (have I told […]
