Homemade Ketchup (Corn-Free)

Corn-Free-Ketchup

I’m not sure if it’s ketchup, catsup, or any other bizarre spelling, but if you are the parent of a child under the age of 10, then you always make sure that you NEVER run out of this key ingredient.  My kids put this stuff on everything, even foods that just don’t seem to make […]

book-goodmorning1

If you’re like my family and cannot have gluten, dairy, eggs or refined sugar then you know how challenging breakfast can be!  For the past few months we’ve been enjoying green smoothies and homemade breakfast sausage…7 days a week…and we were in need of a little change up, at least on the weekends.  So, when […]

  photo credit I returned home (a day early) from the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo in Chicago and I think I’m going to need a week to fully recover from all the fun and free food samples!  Seriously, I gained 5 pounds…in 3 1/2 days!! I will be sharing more of my trip over […]

It’s going to be another crazy week for me as I prepare to leave for Chicago on Thursday to attend the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo. This will be the first time that I’ve left my brood since embarking on “Operation Leaky Gut” and I have to admit that I’m a little nervous as to […]

Raw Sweet Potato Chips

Raw Sweet Potato Chips

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 […]

I recently received a complimentary copy of my sweet friend Elana Amsterdam’s new cookbook, Gluten-Free Cupcakes: 50 Irresistible Recipes Made with Almond and Coconut Flour.  So while my boys were spending the weekend with their grandparents, I broke out the eggs and went to town! I decided to try the Lime Cupcakes, and OMG!  They […]

mealplanmonday_v2

I did pretty good following my first menu plan last week, I made almost everything I had planned on.  The surprising thing to me was how much less money I spent on groceries having a plan to follow, I think I easily saved a couple hundred dollars!  If saving that kind of money weren’t motivation […]
