Tomato-Free Marinara Sauce

pickled beets

This is such a cool recipe! I have not made it in a few years, in fact I forgot about until I made a post and referenced a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EE). Sam used to have a playmate with EE and I got the opportunity to play around with different combinations of foods that […]

Crunchy Flax Cereal Bars

Crunchy Flax Bar2

I found this recipe on Recipezaar and with a few gluten-free tweaks, made a yummy new breakfast bar! 1 1/4 cups honey (I used 1 cup Agave Nectar but might reduce next time to 3/4 cup) 1 cup Peanut Butter (I used Natural Jif and added 1/4 cup whole flax seeds to it… this is […]

Gluten-Free Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Granola Bars1

Sam has been wanting some chewy granola bars similar to the store-bought Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars that his friends eat. I found the following recipe on a website called Make and Takes. Very cool website by the way! In case you are new to my blog, I should explain what I do for recipes. […]

Sour Cream Fudge Cupcakes

Chocolate Muffin2

I know, I know… it’s January 5th and everyone is dieting, trying to eat healthier and going through sugar detox from the holiday season. But what if you could have your “cake and eat it too?” Sorry, couldn’t resist that one! I was going through my recipes that have been piling up and this one […]

Gluten Free Power Sticks Breakfast Bars

Power Sticks1

I love these quick and easy breakfast bars. I have been making these for about 10 years, ever since I found the recipe when I went to Weight Watchers years ago to lose those unwanted Freshman 15 I gained when I went to college. Only 4 ingredients that you can easily modify to meet your […]

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Body Scrub

Scrub1

This time last year when the stock market was cratering and we were tightening our belts, I really began to think about what true gift giving was about. In years past, for me it was all about the “stuff;” the toys, the gift cards, the jewelry, the power tools, etc. As with many things in […]

Homemade Gluten Free “Nestle Crunch” Candy Bars

Rice Dream Crunch4

I got the idea for this the day I was working on my GF Rice Crispies post and dipping my Buckeyes in chocolate at the same time. A light bulb went off… I wonder how it would work out to make my own GF “Nestle Crunch” candy bar with chocolate and the Erewhon Crispy Brown […]

Winter Oreos: Gluten-Free, Dairy/Casein-Free & Egg-Free

Gluten Free Winter Oreos

While at the grocery store the other day, Sam spied the Winter Oreos on display. While I was hoping he didn’t notice, the bright red cream put him in a trance! So he said, “Mom, you need to make these. So and so in my class brought them to school in their lunch and they […]

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Sugar/Waffle Cones

Cones3

I had a crazy “adventure” this week! I say crazy because it is December and I needed a gluten free sugar cone and quick! I found out on Monday that Sam’s kindergarten class was going to be making a snack for their winter celebration. The snack was going to be a Christmas tree made out […]

Peppermint Bark

peppermint-bark11

GF Dad here. I’m sure you’ve all figured out by now that everyone in our home is effectively banished from Mom’s kitchen during the holidays.  There are some good reasons for this.  For starters, the rest of us are boys, which means we make big messes, don’t measure ingredients very well, and always want to run […]
