Baked pumpkin seeds

Don’t throw them out! The pumpkin innards might be ooky and gooky but it’s worth digging through them for the seeds. And since you are making a family activity of the carving, why not teach the kids about a healthy treat? We used a cookie sheet with paper towels for the collection of the seeds, […]

Gluten free Gooey Delight

This is something that I created by accident. I admit it. Those things happen and sometimes they taste amazing! Mix all ingredients below in bowl: 1 bag Brookes Naturals Brownie mix 2 egg whites (instead of the 3 eggs on the bag) 1 C applesauce (instead of the three eggs on the bag) 3/4C melted […]

Gluten free treat bars

You know I love easy recipes! Here’s one of my favorites for celiacs and non-Celiacs will love them too. 1 16 oz container Marshmallow fluff (I prefer this brand as it’s food coloring free) 1.5C Coconut oil 10oz (half a family size box) Cheerios (your choice of flavor) I use the original flavor because the […]

Gluten Free Trader Joes

The staple gluten free items available at Trader Joe’s are endless and cost effective. If you are lucky enough to have access to one near your home or while traveling, you will find consistency in their offerings.  While on our current trip to Chicago, I was able to score a room at the Homewood suites. […]

Gluten free meals, fast

I’m convinced that if my life were in TV it would be a timed cooking show. You know… here’s eight random ingredients, two hungry kids and thirty minutes until bedtime… now go! That’s why it’s always a good idea for me to have gluten free corn dogs, chicken nuggets and frozen burgers on hand. I’d […]

Kale chips

Kale is one of the more polarizing things in life. Like cold weather, lipstick and exercise, you either love it or hate it. Being in the healthier phase of my life, sans kool aid and little Debbie cakes, I have turned to all things green. Matcha, green juice, celery, zucchini, avocados and kale seem to […]

Gluten Free Oatmeal Drops

Getting my kids to eat something nutritious in the morning is more of a challenge every day. Most breakfast foods are not naturally allergy friendly. We have four of the top eight allergens in our family (and three more that are less common, although just as difficult to work around). This recipe is super simple […]

Gluten Free Banana Bread

I’m detoxing from sweets after a long winter break but I still needed a little treat with a healthy edge. Besides I had four over ripe bananas that were going to be round filed, so why not bake them up?. I ordered one of Brooke’s Naturals Banana Bread mixes in my recent Green Bean Indiana […]

Grandmas Cherry Torte, Gluten free

Through the years, grandmas cherry torte was a constant at holiday meals. For years we have tried to immolate it and somehow it just doesn’t taste the same. Maybe it’s just the love she put into making them for the enjoyment of the family that made them better. That was a lot of love. This […]

FREE Donut holes: from gluten, dairy, rice and yeast that is.

This has been a tricky one for me. My kids are really picky when it comes to donuts. Honestly, I don’t know if I can ever win them over with a yeast free donut. I can’t blame them. I’m a light and fluffy kinda donut girl myself. After three batches, I added and removed a […]
