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)

meatballs18

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 […]

Gluten-Free Powdered Donuts/Doughnuts

Gluten-Free Powdered Donuts

Whether you spell it Donut or Doughnut, they both represent the same thing. Whether you are a Dunkin’ Donuts type of donut person or a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts type of doughnut person, it doesn’t matter because if you are gluten-free like me, you cannot have either! Back in December, I had to figure how to […]

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 […]

Gluten-Free Eggplant Parmesan

Gluten-Free Eggplant Parmesan

I found a great recipe the other day for Eggplant Parmesan so I thought I would share it.  Before going gluten-free, I always liked the Eggplant Parmesan at the Olive Garden, thinly sliced and crispy, topped with marinara, shredded mozzarella and fresh grated Parmesan… yummy. I don’t know about you, but I have never had […]
