Glazed Doughnuts

I made these doughnuts a few weeks ago for Sam’s Flag Ceremony at school. His class was in charge of the ceremony and his teacher was going to buy doughnuts for the class to have as a treat afterward. Mind you, this was during the same period of time as the “Magic Wand” Friday Fun […]

“Tricky” Chocolate Pudding

I blame this recipe for my youngest child’s O.B.S.E.S.S.I.O.N. with chocolate! Luke was my smallest baby, at 7 lbs. 13 ounces and 21″ long. That may not seem “small” for a newborn, especially one that was born 2 weeks early, but Sam was 9 lbs. and 23-inches long! Sam never lost an ounce after he […]

Gluten-Free Powdered Donuts/Doughnuts

Gluten-Free Powdered Donuts

Whether you spell it Donut or Doughnut, they both represent the same thing. Whether you are a Dunkin’ Donuts type of donut person or a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts type of doughnut person, it doesn’t matter because if you are gluten-free like me, you cannot have either! Back in December, I had to figure how to […]

Soothing Lettuce Wraps, P.F. Chang’s Style (gluten-free, corn-free, dairy-free, egg-free and soy-free)

PF Changs Style Gluten Free Lettuce Wraps

  Has anyone been to P.F. Chang’s yet to try their new gluten-free menu?  I haven’t been yet, it’s a little tough during the school week but will be going soon! Sam and I are going to have a mommy/son “date” on Friday (no school) and go to P.F. Chang’s for lunch (then to see […]

Gluten-Free Chex Mix

gluten-free-chex-mix

I realize this is probably a no-brainer, but it actually just dawned on me not too long ago when Sam needed some Chex Mix for his “Friday Fun Snack,” that I could make my own gluten-free version!  So just in case it has not occurred to someone else, I thought I would post the recipe […]

Homemade Gluten-Free, Allergen-Friendly Chewy Bagels

Gluten Free bagels that are naturally corn-free, dairy/casein-free, soy-free and can easily be made egg-free! This is one of those things that most people probably don’t think they will ever have to make in their lives, and why would you?  Bagels are are very easy to obtain.  Well, unless you are gluten-free or suffer from […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s funny how things have a way of coming full circle. As a small kid, Valentine’s Day is all about the candy attached to cute little “notes” and stuffed into a decorated box at school. As you grow older, Valentine’s Day becomes this “high pressure” day to express your feelings to the one you love… […]

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 […]

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Did anyone else happen to see the Dr. Oz show yesterday?  Dr. Oz had a segment titled “Three Dangerous Food Toxins,” where he highlighted the levels of Mercury, Bisphenol-A (or BPA) and pesticides in our foods.  The show cited a recent study that estimates, “90% of us have measurable levels of BPA in our blood […]

Gluten-Free Condensed Cream of Celery Soup

GF-Condensed-Cream-of-Celery121-300x200

Okay, there is an upside to this recipe and a downside. I will start with the downside.  You will need celery juice. You could buy it (just make sure it is GF) or if you are anything like me, you can dig out the gift your husband gave you a few years ago for Christmas…during  […]
