happy_halloween_1024x768

Are you ready for Halloween?  My boys sure are biting at the bit (okay, their mom is too).  Before your little beggar dives into his or her loot bag tomorrow, make sure you’re armed with the 2011 Gluten and Allergen Free Halloween Candy Lists! Looking for Halloween recipe ideas?  Be sure to scroll to the […]

Heidi’s Favorite Trail Mix

Trail Mix

I’ve never been a huge fan of trail mixes, especially those of the store-bought variety because there’s usually too many things going on in them that don’t appeal to my taste buds. Nor do I care for protein bars.  I know a lot of folks like them (my boys love LÄRABARS) and they are very […]

Raw Sweet Potato Chips

Raw Sweet Potato Chips

I know what you are probably thinking, “Raw sweet potato chips, Heidi?  Did your oven break?” Notice I didn’t say raw sweet potato slices.  Although, those are quite tasty too!  Allergic to carrots?  Cut raw sweet potatoes in the shape of carrot sticks and dunk in your favorite veggie dip, you just might be surprised. […]

Homemade Beef Jerky, a Giveaway Winner…and a Revolution

Homemade Gluten-Free Allergy-Friendly Beef Jerky

Homemade Gluten-Free, Allergy-Friendly Beef Jerky.  Easy to make, challenging to photograph (in an appealing fashion anyway)! I love beef jerky, but all too often the prepackaged variety contains wheat so therefore it is off limits to me and my brood.  I’m actually kinda thankful for that because it is not only easy to make, but […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free “Toll House” Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I realize you might be wondering why the heck I am posting a chocolate chip cookie recipe this close to Thanksgiving. Most people close to me in my “real” life are most likely thinking, “Oh, there goes Heidi again, off on an ADD tangent…does she NOT REALIZE what today’s date it is?  Where’s the $&@#! […]

Gluten Free Halloween

Gluten Free Halloween Punch

I pretty much flarped on Halloween this year and haven’t done nearly as much as I typically like to.  I think I have had a serious case of “spooky block,” not having artificial colorings to fall back on, LOL!  That’s okay though, I will just look back at this as my “deprogramming” year. It’s funny, […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free “Hostess” Cupcakes

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Hostess Cupcakes

Homemade Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free”Hostess” Cupcakes, why did it take me so long to try this?  I guess I forgot that “Fresh, Wholesome Hostess and Kids Go Together!” Did you notice the part about being fresh and wholesome?  I won’t comment on the “wholesome” aspects because I think we can all agree that we know that statement […]

Amy’s Kitchen Gluten Free Burrito Review

1008_new_burritos

I made an impromptu stop at my favorite local co-op today (La Montanita on Rio Grande Blvd. for my fellow ABQ. peeps) and I hit the jackpot!  I have been looking EVERYWHERE for Amy’s new gluten-free burritos and today was the big day!  I only found the non-dairy version, but that was just fine by […]

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 […]

Mini Pops Popped Sorghum Review (and Giveaway)!

MiniPops

I am SO EXCITED about this review and giveaway that I can hardly stand it!! To all my corn-free friends out there (especially the itty-bitty’s), it’s time to throw a popcorn Mini Pop party! What the heck is a “Mini Pop” you ask?  Well, Mini Pops are an itty bitty corn-free version of popcorn made […]
