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 […]

Gluten Free Gingerbread House

Gingerbread House1

The year Sam was born I started one of our own Christmas traditions, building an annual Gingerbread House! I used to buy one of the kits at the store and each year we had a lot of fun putting them together then taking pictures for our scrapbook. When I was the lone celiac in the […]

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Pot Roast2

This is a fairly straight forward “recipe,” it is really just something I throw together. Use your favorite cut of beef for pot roast. I usually use a Top Round or Bottom Round, the less tender of a cut, the better. Buy more than you think you will need, because it is even better the […]

Gingerbread

Wilton Cake Release

I love gingerbread, especially when it is warm and topped with Cool Whip!I found this recipe on Recipezaar and made a little adjustment to make it gluten-free. I think this is a recipe that can easily be made dairy-free too, at the bottom of this post I will offer some dairy-free baking substitutes. Gingerbread Cream […]

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 […]

Roasted Butternut Squash with Herbes de Provence

Butternut Squash

I got this recipe from someone very near and dear to my heart. An amazing woman who was like a second mom to me growing up during those crazy teenage years and on into college, when my own family moved to New Mexico and I stayed behind in Ohio to finish my degree at Ohio […]

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 […]

"Worms for Brains"

Worms for Brains2

Found this cute idea in the Taste of Home Halloween Edition. I made my spaghetti with Tinkyada GF Fusilli noodles. The boys had fun with it and ate the spaghetti but scrapped the orange bell pepper…figures!
