After the feasting last Thursday, our eating spree continued into Black Friday and then again on Saturday for lunch with my Dad & family. The risotto that I talked about here was just too good to pass up again on Saturday (yes, we went back to Marcella’s ). My body was begging to be fed [...]
When I first heard of pumpkin cornbread, I was reading Meghann’s blog and thought it was an amazing idea! I couldn’t wait to give it a try. I found the recipe that Meghann used here. Laura of Real Mom Kitchen has some great recipes – including Pumpkin Belgian Waffles that I may be trying out [...]
The week is over (or just beginning). I guess it depends on how you look at it. The busy week is over and a less busy week is starting. It was so great to spend time with family over the past few days, but it is good to get back to the routine. I am [...]
Well, a couple days late is better than never, right? The past 2-3 days have been a whirlwind here in our house. Wednesday consisted of running around in circles baking, cooking, chores, laundry and then sleeping. Thursday started with a lovely 6 mile run at the gym. Gotta get that run in to create the [...]
Can you believe it is Thanksgiving already? Where did this year go? Short week for the kids…no school Weds – Fri. Little do they know that they are hopefully getting their H1N1 vaccines on Wednesday. That will make them really, really happy.
We are hosting Thanksgiving dinner again this year. I love to [...]
As I was blogging about crackers last week, one reader asked if I would talk about gluten-free bread choices. What a great idea!

A few weeks back I was contacted by Samantha of Dr. McDougall’s Soups to see if I wanted to sample & review the soups. Of course I accepted! Samantha sent me a package out that not only contained all 7 of their soups, but a great soup bowl, placemat, napkin & napkin ring holder. I [...]

My wonderful mother-in-law, Mary, made this amazing cake for the kids last weekend. I just had to sneak some when the leftovers came home. WOW! This cake was awesome! Thanks, Mary!
The original recipe came from Kraft Foods, but Mary modified it to be gluten-free. Here are her instructions & substitutions.
One of the big things I missed when going gluten-free was pretzels. I love pretzels. Small & crunchy, warm, soft & hot. I don’t think I have met a pretzel that I didn’t like. Oh yeah, that is because they are purely carbs! HA!
There are a couple of companies that make gluten-free pretzels. [...]
