  • (What’s The Story) Morning Glory Muffins

    Liv and I baked side by side for the first time this weekend. Prior to this, I've mixed flour at the counter and she's mixed flour and water at her little red table.  We've both been completely happy this way. But Saturday I asked her if she wanted to bake with me - she was thrilled.  Livvie will be 2 at the end of October.  She's more than ready! And she did a great job. There were only a few accidents along the way. It was so much fun and so cute!  It took me back to Callum's ...
  • Raising Gluten-Free Kids

      Raising gluten-free kids is a lot easier than you might think. My husband was diagnosed with Celiac Disease six years ago, so we’re pretty used to living gluten-free. In fact, I’d say we’re almost pro. We’ve learned how to eat out, travel, and wade through the gluten-eous world we live in.

  • Summer Holidays With Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Kids (Kale Chips too)

    We tend to do a lot of travelling in the Summer.  Usually just short road trips, but being gluten-free and dairy-free still requires planning on short travels. We recently spent a lot of our week away at the beach and it was so much fun!  The kiddies loved being by the water, playing in the sand, and swimming the days away. I decided to share some of my traveling tips with you - it's not easy traveling with allergy kids and adults.  Makes for some serious planning and ...
  • Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, & Egg-Free Almond Butter Oat Cookies

    Callum has recently discovered Sesame Street - thanks to Feist's lovely Number Four song.  Tonight we were watching a clip on youtube with Cookie Monster.  When it was over we were both craving cookies!  It was just after supper so I went ahead and whipped these babies up without him knowing - it was a little too late for baking with a preschooler. When Callum got out of the bath (thank you Daddy for being the #1 bath time dude) he ran down the stairs in the bare buff and said, "Mommy, ...
  • My Assistant – isn’t he gorgeous?

    Livvie's FIRST birthday is coming up so I am busy busy busy prepping for her party.  She's on a GF diet like her daddy so I've been making GF cupcakes with much success.  I will post on the cupcakes post-party. But for now, here's a picture of my little man helping me make her cupcakes.  I LOVE baking with Callum.  It slows me down, and it's much messier, but it is one of my favourite things to do with him. He loves to muck around!
