Weekly Menu Plan – Week of July 18

weeklymenuplan-small

I have quite a busy week ahead of me, my little one is getting ready to turn 4 (sniff) at the end of this month and I have some gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, refined sugar-free (and synthetic dye-free) Batman cupcakes to try and figure out how to make! Where’s that magic wand when I need it?? […]

Weekly Menu Plan – Week of July 11

Before I get to my menu plan for the week, I want to share some rather exciting news from Sam’s appointment with his pediatric GI on Friday. We got the first “real” evidence that everything we’ve been doing over the past 5 months (since going to see Dr. Vikki Petersen and the amazing team at […]

Weekly Menu Plan – Week of July 4th

weeklymenuplan-small

I was so busy prepping for our gluten free 4th of July party yesterday, I forgot to post my menu plan!  Well, better later than never, I say! We had a wonderful time and nothing feels better than knowing all the food at the party is 100% gluten free…no risk for cross contamination and everyone […]

Weekly Menu Plan – Week of June 27

weeklymenuplan-small

I am so happy that last week is finally over, I’m just not used to being THAT busy anymore!  Typically, we are much more laid back with our schedule, I don’t put my boys in too many activities, simply because the commute can interfere with making dinner (not to mention all the snacks that are […]

The BEST Mayo-Free Chicken Salad

Chicken Salad13*

At least that’s what both of my sisters said last week when I had them sample it. I first whipped up this interesting little gem of a recipe back in February, when we had just begun the modified elimination diet before going to see Dr. Vikki Petersen.  I think the hardest foods to give up […]

Homemade BBQ Sauce (corn-free)

Homemade BBQ Sauce

Photo Credit (I forgot to take a picture last week, but will update with my own photo soon) Growing up, I loved the summer time, and not for the reason you may be thinking (no school!).  I loved the hot and humid Ohio summer months for the beautiful green grass and booming maple trees that […]

Weekly Menu Plan – Week of June 13 (and a Thank You)

weeklymenuplan-small

  Like my new menu plan badge?  My very talented friend Alexa from Lexie’s Kitchen designed it for me (thanks Lexie)!  If you haven’t yet “met” Alexa, you really should stop by her blog, especially if you are on a gluten free/casein free diet.  I have made several of Lexie’s recipes over the past year […]

Dairy-Free Basil Pesto

Dairy-Free Basil Pesto

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pesto!  Pesto screams summer to me, or better yet, my fantasy of sitting at a seaside cafe in Genoa, Italy at sunset, holding my handsome husband’s hand while a light, salt kissed breeze strokes my face as I sip on a glass of Italy’s finest vino and […]

Weekly Menu Plan, Rattlesnake Huntin’ (and a Giveaway!)

Rattlesnake Sign

I just love the first week of summer vacation, don’t you? No more of the hectic morning rush out the door to get to school and no more packing gluten free, allergen free lunchboxes!  Instead, I’m now quietly sipping green smoothies on the patio, listening to the birds chirp their little songs and tending to […]

MKplayclay-brochure-0909

If you are the mother of a gluten free and/or food allergic child, then you know how important it is to have a safe play dough for your kiddos (if you are brand new to the gluten free lifestyle, please note that Play-Doh™ is NOT gluten free and neither is Crayola Dough). Why does that […]
