Gluten-Free Mozzarella Cheese Sticks and a YES! Winner

Gluten Free Cheese Sticks

Gluten-free mozzarella cheese sticks, who’da thunk it? YES! Heck, even in my former gluten-life, I could not make a cheese stick.  I could make a mean hollow tube of fried bread crumbs mind you, but somehow, the cheese always managed to escape! Has this ever happened to you?  You roll your cheese stick in bread […]

Gluten Free Pizza Rolls and Toasted Ravioli

Gluten Free Toasted Ravioli

Okay, here it is!  This is so exciting for me, I never imagined being able to enjoy toasted ravioli again.  Not only is the toasted ravioli in the above photo gluten-free, but it is also allergy-friendly too! This post is now linked to a great series that the lovely Jenn (a chemist!) over at Jenn […]

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 […]

Summer of Easy Gourmet Entertaining with Chavrie Goat Cheese

Chavrie

I love goat cheese.  Its creamy texture and tangy mouth-feel is the perfect complement for a variety of appetizers, grilled meats, salads and desserts.  Goat cheese pairs perfectly with beets, raspberries and strawberries.  In fact, this has been one of my favorite ways to enjoy Chavrie® goat cheese this summer (I am in my infancy […]

Homemade Gelatin-Free “Jello” Oranges and Fruit Cups

Gelatin-Free-Jello11-300x199

My youngest son loves “jelly” cups (a.k.a. Jello/Gelatin), but when we started a synthetic dye-free challenge a few months ago, out went the Jello brand gelatin cups!  I tried a product by the NutraDrink company called Natural Jel Desserts back in May (see my “Funny Oranges post”) and while I was initially impressed with the […]

Funny Oranges

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 […]

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 […]

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 “Dude Food” (a.k.a. Concession Stand Nachos)

I realize that the Super Bowl is long gone by now, but gluten-free “dude food” is always in demand since apparently there is a game of “something” on every single day of the year (I actually caught my husband watching Ping Pong the other day).  Sports are a way of life around here… so much […]

Gluten-Free Chex Mix

gluten-free-chex-mix

I realize this is probably a no-brainer, but it actually just dawned on me not too long ago when Sam needed some Chex Mix for his “Friday Fun Snack,” that I could make my own gluten-free version!  So just in case it has not occurred to someone else, I thought I would post the recipe […]
