gluten free pizzelles

For Christmas this year I received a Pizzelles maker.  I was beyond excited because I have wanted one of these for years.  Pizzelles are by far one of my favorite “cookies” in the world.  I can remember being little and my Grandma Lu would always make these for the holidays. (more…)

Girl Scout Cookies…

For decades, the Girl Scouts of America has maintained a tradition of selling cookies as their annual fundraising drive. For a few months during the year, Girl Scouts across the country can be found manning tables in front of churches, supermarkets and town halls, surrounded by boxes of wonderful cookies.

Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs. Do-di-dos, Lemonades and...Thin Mints…

So delicious. *Happy face*

So full of gluten. *Sad face*

Well, the Girl Scouts have turned that frown upside down by introducing their first gluten-free Girl Scout Cookie. And it's (more…)

I brew a pot of tea every morning before I do anything else.

December 17th, 2013 by CC Bonaduce

Healthy-Holiday-Survival-Guide

Despite the snow covered trees, glittering lights, smoke from the chimneys and the overall sense of Holiday spirit that store fronts and houses display, for people living gluten-free there is usually a little bit of gluten-free gloom that hangs over the Holiday season. Don’t get me wrong, we are far from gluten-free grinches, but we cannot deny the nagging sense of anxiety that takes over when considering all of the ways that gluten can complicate even the simplest of Holiday celebrations. Your work may host a Holiday party, you may be staying with extended family members during the Holiday season, there may be a slew of dinner party invitations in your inboxes (or mailboxes if you are classic like that). Don’t let the Holidays overwhelm you! This Gluten-Free Holiday Survival Guide should help make the Holiday season gluten-free and stress-free. (more…)

Traditional Passover Food Find

March 26th, 2013 by Candice Rose Clifford

Yesterday was the start of Passover. Although I am a catholic girl, and quite honestly know next to nothing about this Jewish holiday, I do know one thing. This is the time of year where you can often find matzo stocked on the shelves of supermarkets.
