Nut-Free Chocolate Protein Bar

Since I’ve started taking the whole losing-weight thing seriously, I’ve been trying protein bars more and while I’ve found some good ones, I haven’t been able to find any that are nut-free.  While this may not be a bad thing, it is when your nut allergy son wants one as well. *grin* So since I […]

Easy Chicken and Rice Soup

I’ve really been in the mood for chicken and rice soup, so when I found this really great Easy Chicken and Rice Soup recipe over at Two Peas and Their Pod, I just had to try it.  Now, I’m more of a quick and easy cook rather than all the little techniques, so I did […]

White Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Have you heard of pinterest? It’s an interesting site thats kind of like a bookmarking service, but you’re not the only one who can see the posts. I’ve wasted many an afternoon browsing through the various pins of others and I’ve found quick a few great ideas. One of which being the inspiration for the […]

Baked Macaroni & Cheese

I still hadn’t found a good gluten-free macaroni and cheese for the boys and I really haven’t had much luck with a cheese sauce (especially my mother in law’s recipe).  So when she was up for the day, and Ian asked for macaroni and cheese for dinner, we went to work. I wanted to make […]

Fruity Mango Bars

What are millet flakes?  Does anyone know?  I came across this recipe in the Great Gluten-Free Baking by Louise Blair and it sounds really good, except I have no idea what millet flakes are.  So here’s the recipe and once I find out, and thus try this, I’ll make sure to update. Ingredients: 1/2 cup […]

Sweet Carrot Cake

This recipe from Great Gluten-Free Baking by Louise Blair was originally called Passion Cake Squares, however I just didn’t think that name fit.  For one, the cake came out way more like a carrot cake than anything fruity.  I don’t know why, but whenever I heard “passion cake” I think more of pineapple and the […]

Apricot Toffee Rice Krispies

I love rice krispies treats and when I came across the Messy Marshmallow Krispies in Great Gluten-Free Baking by Louise Blair, I just had to add them.  They add a nice healthy component to a regular favorite that I can’t see it not being a hit. Especially since I don’t see why it wouldn’t be possible […]

Chewy Chocolate Brownies

The boys love their brownies, so I have a feeling I’ll be trying a couple of different recipes until I find one that works.  The first one is from Great Gluten-Free Baking by Louise Blair, and aside from the different flours, there’s not a whole lot that shouldn’t make this work. Ingredients: 3oz gluten-free dark […]

Coconut Cupcakes

Now that Simon has the wheat-allergy, you’re going to be seeing more gluten-free and wheat-free recipes showing up.  The more I read up on this allergy, the more restrictive I realize his diet is going to be.  Therefore, I’m turning the entire house into a wheat-free zone and that means all of us are going […]
