I love to enjoy this almond milk with cereal, in smoothies, and in hot rooibos tea. I try to avoid drinking it by the glass, because it will usually be gone in a day if I do that.
Ok, I will admit. I’m a gadget girl. My kitchen is fairly well stocked but I don’t have everything. A few years ago, a good friend said I had to have a crock pot. I remember fighting it…until I used it. Bought one a week later.
I’m doing my best to not feel the need for a dehydrator or the speedy ice pop maker. Wish me luck in holding out. This post is about which of those gadgets I have bought over the past few years that have really made an impact in my role as “Mom” and why. Each item has a link to Amazon if you want to review or buy. Enjoy!
1) The Salad Chopper
I went to Costco this week and came home with more than intended (surprise). My fridge was loaded with organic chicken strips, edamame beans, shrimp cocktail, guacamole and strawberries. I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner when it occurred to me that all of those ingredients would be really good in a salad; a chopped salad.
When the kids were around 4 and 2, I used to make them a chopped Read More »

To take a load off of your plate for the upcoming Thanksgiving preparation, here is a game plan for a quick and easy side-dish that will absolutely delight the palates of your family and friends.
Guess what I was doing the other day? Browsing Twitter! Imagine that? I was instantly drawn to these Easy Cinnamon Muffins that Jo-Lynne shared. I knew that Jon would love them, so I pre-heated my oven and got down to work.
Jo-Lynne’s recipe is not gluten-free, so I converted it to be gluten-free using Gluten-Free Bisquick. Since the GF Bisquick already has leavening & salt in it, I omitted the baking powder & salt in her recipe. Hindsight says that this may have not been the wisest choice, but the end result was fantastic, so I am not too worried about it. Adding the Read More »
Tacos! Drive thru beef and chicken, crunchy or soft may be our most familiar tacos – staples of a fast food diet. But if you’ve never had a fish taco, I content that you’ve never enjoyed the best taco of all.
From South America, across Arizona and up to Alaska, fish tacos are routinely on restaurant menus, even at airports and most home cooks have their very own favorite versions.
Fish tacos, in all their regional variations are a culinary sensation.One you shouldn’t miss out on just because you don’t frequent these locales. They are incredibly easy to make at home.
Gluten-free tortillas are easy to find in local groceries.
This makes constructing a perfectly delicious gluten-free fish taco pretty darned easy in under 30 minutes.
The best fish tacos I have eaten are made with Alaskan halibut or mahi-mahi. Spicy coleslaw and fusion mayonnaise (spicy, often citrus flavored mayo) are the icing on the cake, when it comes to dressing up a fish taco.
Here’s a recipe for my version of gluten-free fish tacos, just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Add a side of homemade guacamole and pico de gallo and be prepared to enjoy. Viva tacos de Read More »
Do you ever wonder where you can buy gluten-free grains and flours for a discount? Check out your local ethnic markets for terrific prices and variety.
One of the most frustrating aspects of being on a gluten-free diet is the cost of food. Whether you are buying a prepared food or a bag of flour, the prices seem to be higher than “regular” food.
Next time you drive past an ethnic market or grocery store, stop in and see what they have to offer. Asian markets offer various rice flours. Middle Eastern and Indian markets provide a wide variety of bean flours and alternative grains. Read More »
The following questions and answers were developed by the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center at Harvard Medical School:
Q. What is it like for a person you see who is newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease?
A. The gluten-free diet requires more preparation, taking food with you when you travel, making sure that you are safe in dining-out situations or when you are visiting with family or friends. So for some, it is very simple and straight forward and they are already experimenting with new grains like amaranth, buckwheat, millet, sorghum, and teff. But some people are Read More »
