Awesome Fall Meal

I frequently browse other gluten-free blogs looking for dinner ideas for my family. My family is difficult to cook for b/c not only are they picky, but Jon and I can’t have gluten. I can’t eat onions, but those are easily omitted from recipes or subbed with garlic. They typically won’t eat casseroles; there are [...]

Pumpkin Spice Latte

This drink is right up my alley. I love all things pumpkin, so when my sister mentioned the pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, I was all over it. The benefit to Starbucks is that all of the syrups are GF. The only thing (other than the food) that are worrisome for those who have to [...]

Head Buried in the Sand

Where have I been the last whoknowshowmanyyears that spaghetti squash has been around? Why has this veggie never been introduced to me? I bought my first spaghetti squash about a month ago and followed the directions on the sticker on it for baking. When it was done, I thought I had done something wrong b/c [...]

Best Gluten-Free Pizza Crust…EVER!

OH.MY.GOD! I really could say that 100 times. I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but, I can’t. I checked out a bunch of books from the library a few weeks back and one of them was Cooking Free by Carol Fenster, PH.D. I have been meaning to make this for a week [...]

Menu Plan Monday ~ Week of October 5, 2008 – October 11, 2008.

This week things really pick up for us. Hockey season has started and even though they don’t have the teams picked yet, they are heavy into evaluations. Right now Jon has at least 2 evaluations this week (Monday & Tuesday nights) and Hannah has ice skating on Wednesday night. Looks like I better break out [...]

Backfired or Not?

My plan to sneak fruit into food has been detected by my oh-so-clever son, Jon. Last night after I was done cleaning up dinner from Hannah and I, Jon comes home and announces that he is hungry. I told him that I would make him some GF Pancakes; that way I could make and freeze [...]

Spur of the Moment

So when I look back at my menu plan for this week, I see that last night was supposed to be homemade pizza (oops…I went out to Red Robin with a friend) and tonight was supposed to be Breakfast for Dinner. When this happens I typically just move what was supposed to be for dinner [...]

Getting To Know You

I thought this might be fun to post here on my blog. I get these in my email every now and then. I have modified it slightly, so the numbers may be off. Still lots of fun!

Welcome to the 2008 edition of getting to know your Friends. The theory is that you will learn [...]

A Nutrition Victory!

Often when I make dinner I find myself making alternate side dishes because my kids (or husband ) won’t eat one of the sides I have made. I love my veggies and eat a wide variety of them. The kids (and Aaron) do eat a nice variety (broccoli, green beans, corn, peas, carrots, salad and [...]

Sunshine Burgers

Wow. Sunshine Burgers ROCK! Have you tried these yet? They really make me feel “sunny”! They are veggie burgers that are soy & gluten-free. They are made from sunflower seeds, brown rice, carrots, herbs and sea salt. I bought the original and the Garden Herb yesterday at Whole Foods . They were $3.69/box. There are [...]
