Enjoy Life Foods New Crunchy Cookies, A Review and Giveaway!

Crunchy Cookie Family Shot

I was the recent recipient of 4 complimentary packages of Enjoy Life Foods New Crunchy Cookies and while I did not personally sample them (I avoid all grains and cane sugar), my guys had a lot of fun “working” on my behalf…it’s a tough job, ya know! I really like Enjoy Life Foods, they are […]

Canyon Bakehouse Gluten Free Hamburger Buns (and a Giveaway!)

Canyon Bakehouse Buns*

Isn’t that a pretty hamburger bun? And yes, it’s as soft and moist as you might be imaging it to be. While I couldn’t eat any of the buns from the complimentary package I recently received from Canyon Bakehouse for this review, I know how moist and fluffy they are because I was able to […]

Five Star Marinade, Review and Giveaway!

FiveStarNaturalMarinadeBanner

This year is quickly becoming my year of all things marinades, rubs, sauces and dressings.  Growing up, we relied on salt and condensed soup “gravy” to add flavor and moisture to our meats and veggies (which were often dry and/or mushy and therefore required something to help them go down).  Sadly, I was fine with […]

Ethel’s Edibles Gluten Free Desserts

Ethel's Edibles

I recently received two beautifully wrapped (and complimentary) packages of gluten free Blondies and Pecan Dandys from Ethel’s Edibles to sample and review. Ethel’s Edibles is a gluten free bakery in Michigan, founded by Jill Bommarito and inspired by her grandmother, Ethel (hence the name of the bakery). Unfortunately, we could not personally try the […]

A Gluten Free Beer Showdown

Gluten Free Beer Review

Six years ago, when I was diagnosed with celiac disease, I admit that the thought of never enjoying a cold, refreshing beer again did not affect me nearly as much as I imagine it would affect the gluten free guys out there.  Still, there was something about being told that I could NEVER have something […]

Rattlesnake Sign

I just love the first week of summer vacation, don’t you? No more of the hectic morning rush out the door to get to school and no more packing gluten free, allergen free lunchboxes!  Instead, I’m now quietly sipping green smoothies on the patio, listening to the birds chirp their little songs and tending to […]

I am very excited to share today’s product review with you!  While we were perusing the vendor fair at the GFAF Expo in Chicago, my friend Wendy of Celiacs in the House and I stopped by the GlutenTox Home booth and had a great conversation with Catherine Torgler, PhD of Biomedal Diagnostics, the developer of […]

Good Morning! Breakfasts without Gluten, Sugar, Eggs or Dairy (with a Giveaway)

book-goodmorning1

If you’re like my family and cannot have gluten, dairy, eggs or refined sugar then you know how challenging breakfast can be!  For the past few months we’ve been enjoying green smoothies and homemade breakfast sausage…7 days a week…and we were in need of a little change up, at least on the weekends.  So, when […]

MenuSign

  photo credit I returned home (a day early) from the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo in Chicago and I think I’m going to need a week to fully recover from all the fun and free food samples!  Seriously, I gained 5 pounds…in 3 1/2 days!! I will be sharing more of my trip over […]

I decided to try the Lime Cupcakes, and OMG!  They […]
