Perfect (&gluten free) Meatballs!

I've been quite busy lately. Big changes are coming to my little corner of the internet! These changes are, for the moment, mostly behind-the-scenes. There have been some pretty big changes in my life recently, and they are greatly influencing the direction this website will be taking in the (very) near future. Positive and authentic changes, I Continue reading the story "Perfect (&gluten free) Meatballs!"

Easy Icing for sandwich cookies, using coconut oil

1

20131217-155800.jpg This is my favorite go-to icing to make cookie sandwiches. It's gluten free, and can easily be made milk free as well, by using plain soymilk or almond milk in lieu of the milk. I use coconut oil in place of what is often used - shortening. Coconut oil is fantastic as a substitute, but if you cannot find Continue reading the story "Easy Icing for sandwich cookies, using coconut oil"

Thanksgiving Italian Soup – Allergy friendly

A leftover - based soup! I make some form of this soup multiple times each year. It's a great way to use leftover turkey (or chicken) in a way that is pretty distinct from the typical "Thanksgiving Day leftovers" taste. I love throwing it all in a slow cooker, but it works just as well in a pot simmering on the stovetop. Its fantastic when Continue reading the story "Thanksgiving Italian Soup – Allergy friendly"

Memories of my grandmothers, and potato casserole

I am obsessed with retro vintage sewing patterns. Obsessed. It is a relatively recent addition to the long list of my obsessions - and I blame this one squarely on the hard-working shoulders of my grandmothers. Every time I press my sewing machine into use (which is almost daily now), they both cross my mind. My obsession Continue reading the story "Memories of my grandmothers, and potato casserole"

Bacon-wrapped chicken & chokes

20131102-211257.jpg I LOVE fair food. With a passion. Unfortunately, most fair food is not gluten free. Recently while on a girls' trip to a fair, we discovered these tiny little yummy pieces of fair food perfection - and gluten free to boot! **NOTE: most fair food, even if gf naturally, is fried in the same oil as gluten-loaded chicken sticks Continue reading the story "Bacon-wrapped chicken & chokes"

Roasted Garlic Potatoes With Bacon

I love roasted potatoes! Garlic is an obsession for me. And I love bacon, of course. So when my son recently suggested adding bacon to my side dish staple of roasted garlic red potatoes, I was all over that. He helped with the prep as well, sweet boy. I love hearing his creative ideas and working together to turn them into reality! Continue reading the story "Roasted Garlic Potatoes With Bacon"

Cheesy Tuna Casserole like Mom used to make…

...only different. This is a very cheesy, very mushroomy tuna casserole. But first, the backstory. I kind of lucked out in the mom department. And I'm kind of kicking myself for not thinking of posting this recipe and story for Mother's Day. Why do I always get the best ideas after the fact? Mom and I, either Continue reading the story "Cheesy Tuna Casserole like Mom used to make…"

It was just last month that, thanks to some rave reviews by one of my fave bloggers over at Gracefully Gluten Free, I tried PF Chang's GF Lettuce Wraps. They were fantastic, so this weekend I decided to try to replicate them. This isn't an exact copy; I'm not sure that I could if I tried. Continue reading the story "Beef Lettuce Wraps"

My inspiration for this recipe came as I was sitting in my living room watching tv. No joke. This weekend, I was watching a show about Kevin Bacon and his family tree. I also happened to be wishing I had some guacamole. I know. See where this is going, don't you? Thinking about how cool the last name Continue reading the story "Bacon Guacamole"

Vidalia onions are in season! Also, if you're a regular reader, you realize that I love mushrooms. I decided to pair these two ingredients for a little bite size spring snack, incorporating almond flour and cream cheese. Because, well, I am a sucker for bite size elegant little snacks. I admit it! I've made similar mini Continue reading the story "Gluten Free Vidalia & Shiitake Petite Tarts"
