  • Gingerbread Cupcakes

    I am so excited to be hosting the final week of Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free’s Gluten-Free Holiday event!  This week we’re focusing on gluten-free holiday desserts AND I’m giving away two fabulous cookbooks! First I must share my recipe for this week's Gluten-Free Holiday Desserts!  I've been saving this extra-special recipe since last Christmas! Who says you can't eat cupcakes at Christmas? My kids LOVE cupcakes. Last year I stumbled across a Martha Stewart recipe for ...
  • Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (Or Zombie Eyeball Cupcakes)

    Cupcakes are a regular occurrence at our house.  Between birthday parties and school parties, it seems I'm making them every couple of weeks. It's okay though, because I’ve found a few ways to make sure my kids are eating healthier cupcakes. It’s pretty easy to healthify a recipe! Here’s how I did it: I used quinoa flour to add some protein (we make our cupcakes nut-free for the sake of other kids). I limited the amount of starch. I used coconut oil and full-fat coconut ...
  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Zucchini Pancakes

      I don’t know about you, but everywhere I turn I am finding garden-fresh zucchinis! So what’s a girl to do? Put zucchini in everything! I’m considering grating and freezing a bunch for future recipes: muffins, soups, and now pancakes! Can you imagine how easy it would be to break off a chunk of frozen grated zucchini and throw it in a recipe? My kids love pancakes. They would happily eat them every morning for breakfast. My almost five-year old (gulp) is starting ...
  • Dairy-Free Strawberry Ice Cream

    One of my favorite brands of ice cream used to be Häagen Dazs.  Strawberry ice cream?  Yes please! But we’ve been living dairy-free for over a year now and I have to tell you, ice cream tastes even better without the dairy! Maybe it’s because I know it won’t give us a tummy ache.  Or maybe it’s because homemade ice cream can’t be beat! And don’t worry, homemade ice cream is much easier than you think. So move on over Häagen Dazs. Dairy-Free Strawberry Ice ...
  • Gluten-Free & Vegan Pancakes

Make sure you follow Kim on Twitter where you'll find her tweeting great nutrition tips ...
  • Easy Gluten-Free Living: The Preschooler Version (and Vanilla Cupcakes)

    Living with gluten-free preschoolers is a lot easier than you might think. Callum, our almost five-year-old, has been living gluten-free and dairy-free for a year and a half. His two-year-old sister has never had gluten. Callum’s diagnosis was probably the hardest part. I knew how to live with a gluten-free husband, but I wasn’t sure where to begin with gluten-free kids. The first decision we made was a tough one. We decided to become a gluten-free family. No gluten in our house, ...
  • Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies (With A Twist)

    One cannot have enough cookie recipes. Sometimes I’m in the mood for double chocolate chip cookies and sometimes I’m in the mood for peanut butter cookies. This time though, I had a hankering for classic chocolate chip cookies. We’ve redefined the word classic in our house. We take classic and twist it four times. Once to make it gluten-free, a second time to make it dairy-free, a third time to make it egg-free, and a fourth time to make it a little bit healthier. I jumped ...
  • Chocolate Cereal Bars

    Craving chocolate, but it’s breakfast time? I’ve got just the thing for you. Personally, I like my chocolate to be dark. The darker the better. I think it’s because of the little chocolate buzz I get. Oh, and it helps to know that dark chocolate is a brain food! These chocolate cereal bars are an easy, nutritious, and incredibly satisfying nut-free snack for your little ones who are headed to school. But they’re also great for you when you need a chocolate fix but want ...
  • Frosted Sugar Cookies

    We made sugar cookies this week and it was oh so fun. I love baking with my kids and sugar cookies are perfect because the kids can get so involved: mixing, measuring, pouring, rolling out the dough, playing with cookie cutters, and then decorating. It’s the perfect afternoon activity. And then we get a sweet reward at the end! We used this recipe as our base, I made a few modifications (outlined in the updated recipe below) so I could make them egg-free and refined sugar-free. I ...
  • Gluten-Free Salt Dough Ornaments

    Working with salt dough is so much fun for kids, and it’s a great way to get them using the rolling pin and cookie cutters.  It gives them confidence and builds their kitchen skills!  It definitely takes the play-dough experience to the next level. I made these last year with the kids, but we used spelt flour because Callum and I were still eating gluten at the time.  We used the ornaments to decorate our own tree, but we also used them to give to our friends and family as gifts or ...
