Buckeyes and Baking

Phew…..Ohio State skated by. I was a little worried at halftime today. We really didn’t sit and watch the game start to finish, but it was on when I was eating out for lunch and we saw the halftime score before heading home. So, I started my baking and watching the game. My baking must [...]

Marinated Spicy Pork Chops

Tonight for dinner we had Marinated Spicy Pork Chops with baked potatoes, steamed green beans, salad and toasted GF French Rolls with butter from Trader Joe’s. YUM! The pork chops came out wonderfully on the grill. Boy, I am going to miss grilling come winter time! The GF French Rolls from Trader Joe’s weren’t bad. [...]

I Come Bearing Treats

I had some errands to run today and while they weren’t super close to Whole Foods & Trader Joe’s, I decided to make them part of my trip. With the cost of gas, I don’t go to those stores as much as I used to. They are about 15 – 20 minutes away and that [...]

Celiac, Celiac, all around.

Just a quick note here…..Jon comes home from school today and tells me that in his advisory class (home room in the “old” days), his teacher has Celiac and is gluten-free, as is another girl in the class!! OMG! Talk about a small world! Both he and I wonder if they put the 2 kids [...]

Mooooommmmm…come on….not the broccoli slaw!!!!

This is the phrase I hear from my son, Jon, yesterday morning after packing his lunch for school. Every morning he comes down from showering, asks me to make him breakfast and what I packed him for lunch. Usually it is the same type of thing….sandwich on GF bread, chips, applesauce, yogurt, drink, dessert (if [...]

Chicken Tenders & Kit Kat Bars

No, I didn’t eat them together. Last week I had planned on making Chicken Tenders, but they got bumped from the menu for Sushi instead. So, tonight was Chicken Tender night. I made the best dessert that I found on the forum at www.celiac.com and slightly modified it. It ended up tasting just like a [...]

The Non-Traditional Labor Day Meal

When you think of Memorial Day, Fourth of July or Labor Day meals, you probably think of some kind of food cooked on the grill. Burgers, brats, ribs, chicken, kebobs, something along those lines. We have done a lot of that over the summer, so I opted for Breakfast for Dinner for our Labor Day [...]

Mexican Pizzas & Rice

Mexican Pizzas are a quick go-to dinner for me. I end up making these on nights when we have lots going on…meetings at school, hockey practice, swimming lessons, etc. I can get these ready in a matter of 30 minutes or less (not counting the rice, you can make this earlier and reheat). I usually [...]
