Gluten-Free “Nilla” Wafers

nilla-wafers

I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome of this recipe! I had been playing around with various gluten-free recipes for copycat Nilla Wafers, but was never all that impressed with the results. I had actually given up trying for a while until Sam’s teacher sent home the Friday Fun Snack recipe of the week. The […]

GoPicnic Ready To Eat Meals Product Review and Giveaway!!

Giveaways are intoxicatingly fun for me, especially when they are products that I absolutely love and that have made my family’s gluten-free life easier and infinitely better. It is difficult for me to rave about a gluten-free product on my blog and leave it at that. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a […]

Surf Sweets Organic and Natural Candy Review

A while back, I received a complimentary sampling of Surf Sweets Organic and Natural Gummy Candy and Jelly Beans to review on my blog. I have to admit, I received these back in December and I am embarrassed that I am just NOW reviewing them at the end of January! I am a big “out […]

The Great Organic Uncured Hot Dog by Applegate Farms

I got so excited when I found these the other day at Whole Foods! Grass-Fed Beef Hot Dogs by Applegate Farms! And they were only $4.99! And they are really really good! I cannot recall exactly but I think these actually cost a little bit less than the Nathan’s Famous (now gluten-free) hot dogs that […]

I am so UNBELIEVABLY excited about this!!! A while back I had the opportunity to try out blue dominoes Safe Art Activity Dough which is not only gluten-free, but is also free of the top 8 allergens, including wheat and soy! We loved the play dough, especially Sam, who built a whole battle scene with […]

Flourless Flax Seed Pancakes

Creamer_coconut_opening

My buddy Mary did it again!  Mary emailed me a link to a recipe she found on Recipezaar for Flourless Flax Seed Pancakes, very intriguing as they are naturally gluten-free and super healthy (with the heavy cream substitution of course)! So, in order to make these, I needed a few ingredients.  The recipe calls for […]

Corn-Free, Gelatin-Free Homemade Marshmallows!

Kraft Marshmallows

This is (almost) the end of a 4 year frustration of mine! I have been stumped over how to make marshmallows without gelatin (beef or fish) or agar. While my family and I can have regular store bought marshmallows, several years ago, I wanted to make these for an old playmate of Sam’s who was […]

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. […]

Speake Family Christmas

Here is a clip from a local (Albuquerque, NM) family’s holiday light display, The  Speake Family Christmas. We went to see it tonight and all Luke could say was,  “O.H. M.Y. G.O.S.H…,  O.H. M.Y. G.O.S.H!…” To hear a 2 year old scream out “Oh my gosh” is hysterical. All Mike and I could say was, […]
