As you may know, Oz the Great and Powerful has made a cinematic comeback with the help of the dashing James Franco. In the strangest of ways, this movie’s plot relates directly to the gluten-free diet. This version of the classic Wizard of Oz does not include Dorothy or Toto, but it does include three types of witches and one great man that will learn how to defeat the evil that exists. Meet the characters of Oz the Great and Powerful:
Since I received the world’s greatest fettuccine noodles in the mail (thank you Cappello’s Gluten-Free), I was determined to make nothing but the classiest sauce to go with them. But, the problem is…I’m not a classy cook. I’m a “that’s too many steps, I’ll probably mess something up” type of cook, which is why this recipe for Pesto Cream Sauce screamed, “I’M YOUR PERFECT MATCH!” during the search my mother and I conducted.
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.

This Examiner has been eating and enjoying Jones Dairy Farm meat products for a number of years, so when I was asked to review their products it was a no brainer.
Since I am always on the lookout for a sweet snack that is free of gluten, dairy, and soy, I was happy to receive samples of KURDelights. So many gluten-free bars/snacks contain soy protein and/or dairy, or they are very high in sugar and carbs and low in protein and fiber, which is not the case with KURDelights.
These bite-sized snacks contain just enough sweetness to satisfy my sweet tooth and they come in three flavors: Brownie, Coconut Cream, and Dark Chocolate Mint. My favorite flavor is the coconut cream followed by brownie and then dark chocolate mint. These healthy snacks are: Read More »

I have dubbed this my no-oat granola. I missed that detail when I first started adapting this recipe and was sure Better Homes and Gardens had forgotten to list the oats in the ingredient list. Alas, it was intentional and I’m loving it! This granola with a little homemade almond milk is my new go-to breakfast, snack, and occasional dinner.
I love casseroles. They are quick, easy and versatile. They can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner and offer an easy clean up.
What you will need:
EVOO (Extra virgin olive oil) for sautéing
½ bag frozen green beans (optional)
½ lb-1 lb ground turkey sausage
1 onion, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
12 eggs, beaten together Read More »
WOW! That is the first word that comes to mind when I think about the new SOFT Breads and Buns from Kinnikinnick. Why? Let me share the many reasons why I am a fan:
The other day I was out with some friends at our local climbing gym. After a few attempts to reach the top, I was feeling worn out and super-duper hungry. Luckily, when I opened the snack fridge, I happened to find these Gluten-Free Energy Bars. I tried the ALMOND BUTTER flavor, which is made with organic almonds and honey, and other healthy ingredients like pumpkin seed oil, flaxseed oil, and dried whole food powders from organic carrots, bell peppers, apples, tomatoes, spinach, and more. It was like nothing I had ever tasted….and definitely, VERY TASTY indeed!
The next week I contacted Perfect Foods Bar company and they sent me Read More »
