Funny Oranges

gelatin-oranges9

After I got the Breville Citrus Press and started making fresh squeezed orange juice each morning, I found myself knee deep in orange peels.  Instead of throwing them all away, I wondered if I could use some of them for a fun lunchbox treat.  I remembered seeing a recipe for Gelatin Oranges on Disney’s Family […]

Homemade Limeade Concentrate

I love Limeade, especially during the hot summer months.  I find it to be even more refreshing than Lemonade or water for that matter.   While I have been learning to reach for water first, or even sparkling water with a spritz of freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice (no added sweetener), I still enjoy […]

Steamed Artichokes with a Lemon Butter Dipping Sauce

So, a couple of weeks ago I got a recipe in my email inbox from another one of my favorite new blogs, “Snack Girl.” I LOVE Lisa’s blog and encourage you to check it out! It is not a gluten-free blog, but many of her recipes are easily adaptable to be gluten-free. She also does […]

Meatballs (Gluten-Free, Corn-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free and Soy-Free)

Maybe I should have called them “Eggless Meatball Wonders,” or “Guiltless Meatballs,” because there are several nutritious ingredients cleverly hidden inside, and you cannot even tell! Ever since I started experimenting with “flax eggs,” I have become increasingly impressed with the results in most of my experiments.  So much so, I have found myself buried […]

Rainbow Chard Sauteed with Mushooms

Rainbow Chard

Some time ago, I made a conscious decision to further transform how I eat and to expose my children to more naturally gluten-free foods, like fresh vegetables. It’s amazing how a naturally gluten-free diet is so much easier on your pocketbook! Fruits and veggies have always been a part of our diet, but probably not […]

Easter Cupcakes

Easter Cupcakes

Yesterday, Luke and I made cupcakes for his class Easter party so we thought we would show you our handiwork! I use the Better Crocker GF Cake Mixes because they are easy and predictable when I am short on time.  I hope to start working on finding some good scratch recipes over the coming months […]

“Tricky” Chocolate Pudding

I blame this recipe for my youngest child’s O.B.S.E.S.S.I.O.N. with chocolate! Luke was my smallest baby, at 7 lbs. 13 ounces and 21″ long. That may not seem “small” for a newborn, especially one that was born 2 weeks early, but Sam was 9 lbs. and 23-inches long! Sam never lost an ounce after he […]

Soothing Lettuce Wraps, P.F. Chang’s Style (gluten-free, corn-free, dairy-free, egg-free and soy-free)

PF Changs Style Gluten Free Lettuce Wraps

  Has anyone been to P.F. Chang’s yet to try their new gluten-free menu?  I haven’t been yet, it’s a little tough during the school week but will be going soon! Sam and I are going to have a mommy/son “date” on Friday (no school) and go to P.F. Chang’s for lunch (then to see […]

Homemade Gluten-Free, Allergen-Friendly Chewy Bagels

Gluten Free bagels that are naturally corn-free, dairy/casein-free, soy-free and can easily be made egg-free! This is one of those things that most people probably don’t think they will ever have to make in their lives, and why would you?  Bagels are are very easy to obtain.  Well, unless you are gluten-free or suffer from […]

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Did anyone else happen to see the Dr. Oz show yesterday?  Dr. Oz had a segment titled “Three Dangerous Food Toxins,” where he highlighted the levels of Mercury, Bisphenol-A (or BPA) and pesticides in our foods.  The show cited a recent study that estimates, “90% of us have measurable levels of BPA in our blood […]
