Gluten Free Easy Peanut Chicken Stir-Fry

 I am always looking for fast, easy  and healthy dinners that everyone will enjoy.  It’s a trial by error process because it always seems that someone complains about either the entire meal or at least a portion of it (usually a certain vegetable that I’m determined we are all going to like one of these […]

Gluten Free Banana Cake

  I know I make a lot of banana “things”.  It’s just that our family likes bananas, but not when they get too ripe.  (Personally I prefer mine a little green, almost chalky to taste, but I digress).  So we end up having a lot of left over bananas that I hate to waste.  Hence, banana bread, […]

Amazing Everyday Sandwich Bread

  Here is one recipe that needs no changes!  A fantastic everyday sandwich bread that has become a staple in our house.  So far, (and we are only 3 1/2 months into gluten free living) I would highly recommend getting the cookbook Nourishing Meals by Alissa Segersten and Tom Malterre, MS, CN.  Check out this […]

Gluten Free Pumpkin Cake Bars

I adapted the recipe from The Frugal Antics of a Harried Housewife blog http://frugalanticsrecipes.com/2013/01/gluten-free-pumpkin-brownies/ The Harried Housewife’s turned out more “brownie like” while I think mine were more “cake […]

YUMMY! Raw Meal Protein Shake

Just made myself a Raw Meal Vanilla Organic Protein Shake….yum yum!  Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Non GMO Verified.  The shake itself may look a little dubious, however it tastes amazing….you’ve got to try it. http://www.gardenoflife.com/Products-for-Life/Foundational-Nutrition/RAW-Meal.aspx

Gluten Free Waffles

  Homemade waffles, pancakes and crepes have always been a nice morning treat in our house.  Since our daughter’s diagnosis with Celiac’s Disease breakfast just hasn’t quite been the same.  I have made (and thrown out) a number of pancake or waffle batches.  As I stated in an earlier post I am still continually trying […]
