  • 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 ...
  • 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 and Vegan Oreo Cookies (and cupcakes)

    This recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free Oreo Cookies has been sitting here for a few weeks, alas, the end of Summer was so full for us and the first few weeks of school have been the same. My days consist of running kids to and from school, playing Lego when they are home, studying anatomy and physiology whenever I can, and running a whole foods kitchen! It’s a fabulous life, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Now back to these cookies – the perfect after ...
  • Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Egg-Free Chocolate Cake

    August is birthday month around here (and it doesn’t seem to slow down too much until the end of October). Now that both of my parents and my sister are gluten-free and dairy-free (and feeling fabulous of course), I’ve been busy baking birthday cakes and cupcakes for my entire family. One of my go-to gluten-free flours is teff flour. It’s an amazing gluten-free grain jam-packed with nutritional goodness. And it pairs perfectly with chocolate, so naturally I grabbed for it when I ...
  • We Planted A Garden!

    Callum and Liv have taken an interest in planting and watering flowers so I decided to involve them in this year’s gardening adventures. Please let me begin by telling you three things: I am no expert gardener – I plant it, and if it grows we eat it! Our garden is teeny tiny. We had no plan. Just fun! I do love taking my garden gloves off and getting my hands right into the earth. There's something restorative about it.  And I love watching my kids get dirty in the ...
  • The Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo

    We just got back from a fantastic weekend in Chicago, Illinois.  We went to the Gluten Free and Allergen Free Expo and it was so fantastic.  I am so glad we took the kids, it was such a great gluten free adventure for all of us. Friday night we went to a pasta dinner at a restaurant called Maggiano's.  Gluten free pasta at an Italian restaurant!  It was such a treat.  We were lucky to share a table with Amy (from Simply Sugar and Gluten Free) and her husband Joe, as well as Brittany ...
  • 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 ...
  • Gluten-Free Gingerbread House

    Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Egg-Free Gingerbread House And it tastes (and looks) darn good!  If I do say so myself. It was definitely a big project, but Callum and I had a lot of fun creating our first ever gingerbread house! I used my recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free gingerbread cookies and it worked perfectly. The hardest part was finding a dairy-free frosting recipe to glue it all together. I asked my friend Heidi from Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom and she sent ...
  • Sweet Potato & Caramelized Onion Spread

    Have you eaten a rainbow today? I stumbled across the Today I Ate a Rainbow kit at my friend Kim's blog, Your Green Baby .  She reviewed the kit and loved it so I knew I had to check it out for myself. It’s one of the coolest kid-friendly products I’ve ever come across. I love it and so does Callum. Livvie, our two year old isn’t quite ready to use the chart but at least she’s getting a rainbow of fruits and vegetables, and hearing lots of talk of rainbows! Callum loves ...
