Hallie’s Grain Free Almond Pecan Cookies

AlmondPecan

I remember perusing through Hallie Klecker’s first cookbook, The Pure Kitchen, last October while I was enjoying a little gluten free girl time with a few of my fellow bloggers in Oceanside, California.  I literally couldn’t put the book down – the gorgeous photography made my mouth water relentlessly.  I mean really, who knew that […]

Baking without Dairy and Eggs, Corn-Free, Vegan Vanilla Pudding and a Giveaway!

vegan vanilla pudding Allyson Kramer

I am delighted to have my friend Allyson Kramer of Manifest Vegan guest post here today.  While I am not vegan myself, we are a dairy free family and I also have a child with an egg allergy.  Dairy free substitutes are actually quite easy to navigate when cooking and baking, but eggs are a […]

Crispy Seasoned Chicken

Chicken Rub Recipe

We eat a lot of chicken in our house and I’m always looking for new flavorful ways to prepare it because lets face it, plain chicken won’t send your brood running to the table for dinner!  The inspiration for this recipe comes from the dynamic duo behind Paleo Parents and the brilliant kid-friendly cookbook, Eat […]

Green Bean “Fries”

Green Beans Fries_1

I learned a very valuable parenting lesson a couple years ago when I conducted a little McCarrot Fry experiment on my kids.  The big takeaway was this: brand names and packaging are very powerful weapons in a parents’ war on picky kids.  In my particular case, my 4 year old, Luke, is the picky eater […]

Steak Salad_1

Disclosure: Cappello’s and TX Bar Organics provided free pasta and beef products for me to review and also for this giveaway.  However, this is not a compensated post and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own. I’ve never been shy about sharing my struggle to commit to the gluten free diet after my celiac […]

Southwest Grilled Cheese and Bologna Sandwich for National Grilled Cheese Month

Udi's Southwest Grilled Cheese and Bologna Sandwich

There’s nothing like the call of National Grilled Cheese Month to bring a gluten free blogger out of semi-retirement (a.k.a. Little League baseball season)! I was recently challenged to come up with a grilled cheese sandwich recipe featuring Udi’s gluten free bread and Horizon Organic cheese, and I just couldn’t resist. I know what you’re […]

Find Me Gluten Free App, Grain-Free BMT “Sandwiches” and a Menu Plan

Grain-Free BMT

Guess what?  I woke up this morning to the news that I’ve been nominated in the “Personality of the Year” category for the first annual Foggy Awards, sponsored by Find Me Gluten Free! What exactly is a “Foggy” Award? The FOGGY (free of gluten) awards are given to those that shine light on the Celiac […]

All About Gluten Free Waffles

Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake Waffles

There is a great book out there called Men Are Like Waffles–Women Are Like Spaghetti: Understanding and Delighting in Your Differences (which admittedly I have not read but my husband says is hilarious).  Apparently, the book tells us what we already know: that men view most choices and conflicts in terms of “waffle buckets” and […]

Gluten Free St. Patrick’s Day Fun and a Recipe for Shamrock Smoothies

Healthy St Patricks Day Recipes for Kids

  St. Patrick’s Day has always been a fun holiday for me, everything from pinching the poor hapless soul who doesn’t wear green (or orange!) to chugging more than my fair share of green beer back in college. Funny, I can’t seem to recall partaking in any other tradition for St. Patty’s day. Must have […]

All about Gluten Free (Boxed) Cereals

Gluten Free 101

  Nothing brings back fond memories of 1980’s childhood quite like that morning American staple known as “breakfast cereal.”  I’m not sure at what point we co-opted the term “cereal” to basically convey a mostly sugar-laced, artificially colored bowl of glutonium, but the word has found its way into the American lexicon…so be it. The […]
