The Death Star Pinata

Death Star 3

Whew…I think I have made a passable (at least to a group of 5 and 6 year olds) Death Star Pinata for Sam and his buddy Garrett’s upcoming Star Wars birthday party. This is what I used as a guide: Overall, this was pretty easy.  Especially using what was originally a soccer ball pinata.  It […]

Old Fashioned Raspberry Bars

Raspberries

Yesterday, my family and I went off an a new adventure, we went raspberry pickin’!!  There is a great raspberry farm in a quaint little village near us, in Corrales, NM, called Heidi’s Raspberry Farm.  We all piled up and went on the hunt.  Eight pints later (and probably at least as much in Luke’s […]

Colorations Gluten-Free Play Dough & Disposable Art Gloves

Settling in to Kindergarten

There is so much to consider when sending a GF child to school!  Everyday seems to be a new experience and I realize I have yet ANOTHER GF supply that I either need to make or buy! I have posted a recipe for GF Play Dough in the past and while it is great dough, […]

Gluten Free Snack Box for School

Gluten Free Snack Box for School

Just thought I would show the snack box that I make for each of my boys to take and keep at school. This saves lunch box space and they always have a “backup plan” should another child, etc. bring in an unplanned treat for the class that is not GF. Sam and Luke will always […]

Gluten Free “Goldfish” Crackers

I am so excited to share this with you all, so I am going to make a second post today!!  This is not my recipe, I will never take credit for something I did not create. This recipe is from a cookbook by Roben Ryberg.  She is the founder and former owner of Miss Roben’s […]

Gluten-Free Play Dough Recipe

Back to School & GF Play Dough

I just received a phone call from Sam’s new kindergarten teacher.  A very nice lady who has never heard of Celiac Disease.  As I explained CD to her and sited Play Doh as an example of cross-contamination, her only comment was, “I don’t know what I would do if I can’t have Play Doh in […]

Gluten Free "Spaghetti O’s"

Gluten Free "Spaghetti O's"

In my pursuit of easing Sam’s transition into the GF lifestyle, I have, as an occasional treat; tried to make replications of some of his favorites like the boxed macaroni and cheese, pizza, Happy Meals and now Spaghetti O’s. The mac and cheese, pizza and Happy Meals have been relatively simple to recreate.  Spaghetti O’s […]

“Mommy McGriddle” Breakfast Sandwich

"Mommy McGriddle" Breakfast Sandwich

I have a great little breakfast sandwich that my kids love, it’s a GF spin on the McDonald’s McGriddles Breakfast Sandwiches. Use your favorite GF Pancake Mix (we always use Pamela’s Pancake and Baking mix at our house) to make your pancakes.  Tip: I like to quadruple the batch each time I make pancakes, then, […]

Ian’s Wafflewich

Ian's Wafflewich

While I was at my local Whole Foods the other day, I noticed a new GF food to try, Ian’s Maple Sausage and Egg Wafflewich. I go into trying a new (to me) GF product skeptical but with an open mind. I will try anything to see if I can “discover” some new gluten-free godsend, […]

Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake

Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake

Back in the spring I decided to take a cake decorating class at a local cake supply store.  I will admit that the idea of going into a room filled with gluten laden cakes freaked me out; but I was a mom on a mission.  Armed with vinyl gloves and sitting at my own table […]
