  • Chocolate Dipped Power Balls

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this year I really wanted to create something that both my kiddies and my husband would love. We’re pretty big fans of chocolate around here. Granted, the kids like theirs a little lighter than Pete and I (thank goodness Enjoy Life makes chocolate they like). Pete and I are good with the really dark stuff. We buy a raw ...
  • Vanilla Apple Cider Waffles

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. When I was a little girl I loved Eggo Waffles. Can you blame me? My favorite part about eating them was making sure every little square was covered in syrup. Perhaps that’s where my love of all things sweet was born. When we switched to a gluten-free diet, we generally avoided store-bought waffles as they’re pretty void of nutrition, and you know how I like my foods to be full ...
  • 7 Tips for Enjoying a Kid-Friendly Gluten-Free Christmas

      We’ve been a gluten-free family for 4 years now, but to be honest, it’s hard to remember what life was like before we changed our eating habits. I am so grateful for the road we’ve been travelling - even when it was bumpy and I didn’t know where our next turn would take us. We’re all so much healthier and happier. My family and I don’t miss out on a thing this time of year, or any other time of year, for that matter. Here are some tips I’ve learned over the years ...
  • Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Cookies

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Fall is all about pumpkin recipes, don’t you agree? I think it’s how we mourn the beauty of Summer and all of her juicy berry recipes. I can live with pumpkin, in fact I’ve really grown to love it over the last few years. I used to turn my nose up at it for some reason. I was much happier with apple pie, who really needed pumpkin pie? That was until I tasted my friend ...
  • Raspberry Cream Parfaits

      I’m taking a break from Zucchini recipes (I have one more in store for you).  These Raspberry Cream Parfaits can be made with any berry – I think wild blueberries would be fabulous. You could also use frozen berries.  What’s nice about frozen berries is the natural syrup that comes when the berries melt.  It makes the parfaits look even prettier. This means you can make these parfaits any time! We’re in peach season here and I can imagine peach parfaits would ...
  • Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf

      Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. As I mentioned in my last post, zucchini is popping up everywhere! I do enjoy raw zucchini, but I'm not a fan of cooked, roasted, or steamed zucchini. I find it gets a mushy consistency and I just don’t like it. So what’s a girl to do with all of this local and organic zucchini? Bake Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf of course! This recipe was born out of my childr...
  • Single Serving Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

     Thanks for the visit!  Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter so you can get your copy of my new e-book 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Why oh why would someone want a single serving cupcake recipe? I can think of a few reasons: 1.  When you get that sudden urge for chocolate. 2. When you get that sudden urge for something sweet. 3.  When you totally forgot that your son has a birthday party in two hours and you need to send a cupcake! 4. Single mug ...
  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

    Cookies are my absolute favorite treat.  It’s so easy to whip up a batch of cookies, and nothing pleases tummies more! I love watching cookies disappear from my cooling rack - cute little hands sneaking in for another taste.  I also love taking cookies to a friend when we’re going for a visit – it’s a simple, but heartfelt gesture. I have to admit, I’ve been keeping these delicious Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies from you for quite some time (almost a year).  Please ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Fudgeeo Cupcakes

    As kids gets older, they become more sensitive about their differences, in this case, their food intolerance(s). They just want to eat what everyone else is eating! Especially when it comes to birthday parties and other social gatherings. Not too much to ask, is it?  Unfortunately this can get a little tricky. In order to make my kids feel a little better about being the only one eating a gluten-free cupcake at a birthday party, I’ve decided to get a little more creative. If ...
  • Gluten-Free One Bite Brownies

      I’m all for indulgences, but these days I like my indulgences to be a little bit healthier.  And I love it when my kids consider my healthier treats to be tasty too. These One Bite Brownies are just that!  Healthier and yummy. So what makes these One Bite Brownies healthier? I used whole grain teff flour - high in protein and calcium. I used heart-healthy coconut oil - are you using it yet? I used coconut sugar instead of refined cane sugar - a little easier on ...
