The new Kinnikinnick breads are SUPER SOFT and REGULAR LOAF SIZE - check out how the Kinnikinnick loaf (pictured right) towers over another brand of gluten free bread. Kinnikinnick Soft Products don’t require (more…)
This recipe is full of nutrients that are important to anyone living gluten-free. Tuna is a great source of iodine and iron, and avacado provides fiber, potassium, vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid. The tomato is full of Vitamins A and C, the onions add sulfur, and the cilantro contains Vitamin K and gives the salad it’s zesty taste. I hope you enjoy!
Kevin and I had initially planned to go to Calaway Park, but it ended up raining all weekend so we decided to stay home and organize the house! Sounds much better than going to a theme park, right? *rolls eyes*
It’s amazing how much stuff a person can accumulate over the years, isn’t it? I was surprised to learn that we have 11 boxes of Christmas things – lights, decorations, stockings, etc. That’s more than we have boxes of books, or clothes! There’s something wrong with this picture, no?
Come Sunday afternoon, we had made two trips to the goodwill center, organized the basement, our offices and the garage, and were absolutely drop-dead starving! Kevin kept himself busy sorting through a box of old photos while I prepared a big salad for the two of us. We met in the living room just off the kitchen, sat on the floor with the dogs, and (more…)
This Examiner was fortunate enough to receive a box of Dr. Schar’s newest product, Honeygrams, to try and review. One of my favorite snacks as a kid was graham crackers topped with peanut butter and I am happy to report that these graham crackers taste better than the wheat-based version of my youth.
Dr. Schar has created a graham cracker that has the perfect amount of (more…)
Since I have this brand new bag of blanched almond flour that Honeyville sent me burning a hole in my pantry, I decided to try one of the savory recipes from Elana Amsterdam’s book. My kids love Cheddar Bunnies and Goldfish snack crackers, so I made these cheddar cheese crackers, hoping they’d be something we could all enjoy. I’d never attempted homemade crackers before, and I was pleasantly surprised by how easy they were.
For the cheddar cheese crackers, you’ll need:
2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
¼ tsp sea salt
½ baking soda
1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons coconut oil (original recipe calles for grapeseed oil) (more…)
On the surface, “restricting” and “self-care” sound like polar opposites and I know this is such a core issue that so many of us experience in the gluten-free community. Generally we think of restrictions as a way of saying “no”, of controlling and denying. I’m sure everyone knows or has seen someone take even concepts about healthy eating and eating the “right foods”, and push them too far. Yet for people with food allergies, Celiac, gluten sensitivity, etc., food restrictions can really be a way of simply living more fully, or taking better care of health. Chances are if you’re on this blog, you know where I’m coming from.
I hate the idea of “dieting”—the regimented set of rules that are about contorting and what you do until you lose enough weight so that you can (more…)
There are hundreds of gluten-free products poised to hit store shelves this year, and if you are a gluten-free foodie like me, then you want to try them all without breaking the bank. Not all gluten-free foods are created equally, so we are fortunate there are companies out there ready to deliver gluten-free sample boxes right to your doorstep.
These companies offer monthly, quarterly, and yearly subscription services that save you money and time by taking the guess work out of buying and trying new (more…)
(My monster fudgesicle – gluten and dairy free! Happy Summer)
I’m always up for making things at home (beef jerky, granola bars, ice tea, etc.). I know there is convenience in buying many of these things, but I rather enjoy making things at home. One it’s a challenge for me, two I know exactly what is going into my food. I love making gallons of ice tea at home because I can control the amount of sugar (or honey, or agave) that goes into my tea. It is truly amazing how much can be found in a gallon of store-bought ice tea.
We don’t buy much ice cream at the store and I don’t ever make it only because I do not have an ice cream maker. Oh, how I wish I had one. Instead I make pops. We bought two packages of Monster Popsicle Molds (I found mine at Marshall’s/T.J. Maxx) which can be purchased from (more…)
I get given boxes of chocolates by my mother-in-law occasionally, but they always have wheat in. Added to that the amount of dairy in chocolates is enough to cause me trouble. I used to squeeze all the chocolates in a mixed box to find the ones that were firm (fortunately husband loves soft-centred chocolates) but mostly now I have just given up buying chocolates.
We have had about three hot days this summer, and thoughts turn to ice-cream. I keep coming across people posting about chocolate sorbet. This seemed a great way of having two types of treats at once.
This sorbet is very intense, and one small scoop is enough for me. It would be great with raspberries or other (more…)
