Weekly Menu Plan–September 23, 2013

The only thing that keeps coming to mind as I sit down to write this post is, “Wake me up when September Ends.”  Perhaps that’s because I slept the weekend away?  I slept 9 hours on Saturday night, still felt the need to lie down yesterday afternoon and was in bed before 10 PM last [...]

My #GFF – Gluten-Free Friend

When I began the gluten-free diet over seven years ago, I was the only one I knew who ate gluten-free other than a co-worker that worked with my husband Aaron.  My friends didn’t really know what “gluten-free” meant and they sure didn’t seem interested in following the gluten-free diet.  Things have sure come a long [...]

Review: Tastefully Simple Brownie Mix

I am a firm believer in chocolate therapy.  There isn’t much that chocolate can’t fix, right?  The kids have been back-to-school for close to a month now, so I knew that a batch of brownies would be the perfect way to perk them up. It was right about the time that the kids started school [...]

Gluten-Free Mondays

Everyone seems to dread Mondays.  It’s back to work or school and the hectic schedules that keep us on our toes.  My Monday morning started at 5:00 AM, when I got up for a 4 mile run.  I ran errands until 1:00 PM, but I found some pretty rockin’ deals to make my Monday pretty [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–September 8, 2013

I ran around all day thinking that it was “National Banana Nut Bread Day”, only to find out I was wrong.  It is “National Date Nut Bread Day”.  Doh!  I planned to share several different recipes for gluten-free banana nut bread, ranging from simple to more complex.  After thinking about it I decided not to [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–September 3, 2013

Welcome to September!  I woke up this morning to much cooler temperatures and lower humidity.  This means that running is about to get easier.  That invisible, thick layer of air will disappear and it will no longer seem as if swimming and running have merged into the same sport.  Cooler temperatures also mean fall is [...]

Udi’s Gluten-Free On-the-Go

Traveling when you are following the gluten-free diet can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be.  I truly believe the key to success is planning.  If you fail to plan, you basically plan to fail.  Udi’s Gluten-Free helps make planning to travel gluten-free easy since most of their products don’t require refrigeration and [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–August 26, 2013

School has started and we are in the last week of summer.  Labor Day weekend is upon us, though the temps feel more like mid-July than they do heading into September.  I am getting busier in the evenings with personal training clients (YAY!), so menu planning and keeping my calendar organized is becoming an absolute [...]

Pillsbury Gluten-Free Pie Crust = Beef Pot Pie

This post is sponsored by Pillsbury.  All opinions are my own.

Many people think fruit or dessert pie when they hear “pie dough”.  Why not a savory or dinner pie?  My Mom’s Beef Pot Pie is out of this world and one of my favorite childhood dishes. 

Pillsbury’s new Gluten-Free Pie Dough is [...]

Friday night in our house are often “Make Your Own Pizza” night.  In the past I have used a gluten-free packaged mix or gluten-free frozen crust as the base, but now that Pillsbury is offering a refrigerated gluten-free pizza dough, I have been [...]
