Chocolate Fudge

Fudge

Okay, this is nothing spectacular, fudge is fudge right? Well, I just wanted to offer some suggestions for those who may want to make this recipe (or one like it) but haven’t because of the dairy. I made this batch with dairy but I think there is a nifty way around it for dairy free […]

A Review of Gluten Free Energy Bars: Boomi Bars and Prana Bars by Divine Foods

SuperCharger and Nutrition

Gluten Free Dad, here.  Since my skills in the kitchen pretty much end with “turn the oven on to 425,” I’ve been handed some product reviews to complete.  I approach this with some trepidation, because I remember what most gluten-free substitutes tasted like 5 years ago.  Things have come along way since then, and I […]

Gluten Free Rice “Krispie” Treats

Erewhon_gf_main

I don’t about you, but ever since going gluten-free, Rice Crispy Treats have just not been the same since Kellogg’s Rice Krispies “left the pantry.” While there are some really good GF Rice cereals out there, the famous marshmallow treat of my past just wasn’t the same, “something” seemed to be missing. I presume it […]

04-barry-parsons

Had ya didn’t I?  Yeah…no. I wouldn’t of fallen for it either!   For more on the real creator (Barry Parsons) of this beautiful gingerbread “manor” click here. The cold, hard reality: we are close kin of the Griswolds!! This is an update from my first post on making your own Gluten Free Gingerbread House. […]

Cinnamon Candied Apples

Candy Apples2

Growing up we always drove from Ohio to Centre, Alabama to visit my mom’s side of the family for Christmas. My grandmother made some southern specialties that I grew to love over the years (it was hard letting go of my “Yankee” roots!). Besides my grandmother’s Cornbread Dressing and Candied Yams, there were her Cinnamon […]

Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies

GF_Images_Box_Devils

I am so excited about this! I cannot believe how much these GF Thin Mints taste like the Girl Scouts Thin Mints (well, at least from what I remember!). For the Cookie Wafer: 1 pkg. of Betty Crocker’s GF Devil’s Food Cake Mix 1/4 cup Butter, melted (I used Smart Balance and I am sure […]

The Great Brussels Sprouts Caper…

Brussels Sprouts1

Perhaps a better title would have been: How to Get Your Kids to Eat their Brussels Sprouts…or not. I don’t know about you, but I hate Brussels Sprouts! Growing up, my mom used to boil them. I can’t imagine a worse preparation for this vegetable. I think it just enhanced the naturally bitter flavor and […]

Taco Burgers

Taco Burger1

One of my favorite little fast food places to eat at before going gluten-free was a local place called Bob’s Burgers. Bob’s is famous around here for their taco burgers which are simply a hamburger patty in a corn taco shell (with a bit of hot green chile of course!).  I do not know why […]

Gluten Free Chow Mein Noodles, Take 1

Okay, so this is a work in progress but I wanted to show that it is possible, I just need to find the right noodle! Sam’s school does a neat little thing every Friday called Friday Fun. On Fridays, they make/cook a snack and at the end of the year the kids will have a […]

Homemade “Nutri-Grain” Bars

Nutrigrain3

I used to love Nutri-Grain bars, pre-celiac. I miss having something easy to grab for breakfast in the morning, that I actually like. I have tried all the GF cereal bars and while they are okay, they are not the same. I found this recipe and WOW! They taste just like I remember Nutri-Grain bars […]
