Gluten Free 101: “Breakfast in Minute Casserole” (okay, so it’s more like an hour…but who’s counting when there’s cheese and ham involved?)

Disclaimer: Yes, that would be a Christmas plate you see in the photo above.  I’m not the most punctual person in the world.  (It ain’t always easy being gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and egg-free…and homeschooling…on top of just being a mom and everything else!). 😉 With the weekend coming up, I thought I would kick off […]

Getting Back to Gluten Free Basics for the month of February and a (very late) Menu Plan

  Sorry my weekly menu plan is going up so late, I was thrown off schedule this weekend by planning for the Gluten Free Super Bowl party I hosted at my house yesterday.  I wish I could say I watched some of the game, but a more pressing matter arose when my sister (who was […]

Gluten Free Super Bowl Recipe Round Up: The Good, The Bad and the Downright Sinful!

It’s that time of the year again when men across the country become infatuated with other men in tight pants who are apparently the best butt-slapping, man-wrestling, concussion-causing, chemically amped up participants in a “game” organized by a corporation league that extracts 9 billion dollars a year from the US economy. For the rest of […]

Caesar Salad Dressing: Corn-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free and Soy-Free

All Caesar’s are created equal, right?  Not so fast!  Any balanced study of history (ancient and culinary) will help you understand that there are many different ways to govern (or garnish). Some Caesars are wise rulers, yet some use too much salt.  Other Caesars couldn’t last for more than a few months, yet some couldn’t […]

Gluten Free Menu Plan – Week of January 30

Before I share this week’s menu plan, I’d like to share some fun gluten free highlights from this past week. Have you been following along with Wendy’s fun (and functional) blog series called “In My Gluten-Free Kitchen” over at Celiacs in the House?  If not, I definitely recommend you check it out.  Every Friday in […]

Wax On, Wax Off…Heidi’s Thoughts on Finding Balance

  Finding balance.  In my opinion, that is such a loaded phrase. Think about it, break it apart.  “Finding.”  This means, by definition, that you have been searching for something, a place or state of being that you have not been able to locate.  And when you arrive at your destination, it presents itself as […]

Gluten Free Menu Plan – Week of January 23

Before I share this week’s menu plan, I have quite a bit of catching up to do!  It’s been a busy week trying to finish up my “little” house painting project but somehow I managed to steal some time on Facebook and have a few things to share with you. Gluten Free Samoas First up […]

Gluten Free Menu Plan – Week of January 16 (And a Few Other Things)

Well, my “wish it were spring” spring cleaning in the kitchen earlier this week helped me realize that my house would be brighter and more “idea-inducing” if my walls were a little lighter. Makes sense, right? So in typical ADHD Hurricane Heidi fashion, the last three days have seen multiple trips to Lowe’s, two five-gallon […]
