Healthy Meals For Toddlers

Healthy Meals For Toddlers

Since moving to Texas, we’ve lived something closer to the traditional American family lifestyle than we ever have. Gabriel often works away from home during the day, and I’m home with the kids. I suddenly find myself making lunches specifically for my children. Well, when you use only gluten-free recipes, lunch is a little more complicated than slapping some peanut butter on bread. Of course we still made things like toddler cookies to snack on, but I admit that I succumbed {Read More}

Gluten Free Hamburger Bun Recipe

Do you love hamburgers, but have a hard time finding gluten-free recipes to fill your needs? Well, let me help you out. I admit, I’ve never been a bun girl. I know, here I am, not a food allergy in sight, and I eat my hamburger a la paleo (and that was before paleo was even cool!).   Then I married my husband. Food allergies galore, and he loves hamburgers. On the bun. I like to think I’m more empathetic {Read More}

Gluten-Free Pancake Mix Recipe

I use to whip up all of my gluten-free recipes from scratch. Every time. I scoffed at the idea of making mixes to “save time”. I mean really, I already have my cheapest gluten-free flour ready to go, so how much time does it really save? Ten seconds?  Now I scoff at myself for thinking that. Now I realize that even if they only save ten seconds, Tend seconds is a lot of time when there’s a toddler clinging to {Read More}

How To Be Happy – Even When You’re Dirt Poor

how to be happy when you're dirt poor

Two years ago, I stood in the kitchen trying not to cry. A conversation with my husband had been the last straw. It wasn’t mean, it wasn’t ugly. He’d simply suggested that we needed that we needed to spend less money. How many more notches can the belt be tightened before it breaks? I wondered. Beyond that, I was tired. Tired of not being able to afford anything. Tired of trying to make ends meet. Tired of the crummy toys {Read More}

Easy Homemade Barbecue Sauce

easy homemade barbecue sauce

Why is it so hard to find barbecue sauce that doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup listed in the ingredient? It’s kind of funny, because it’s one of those naturally gluten free recipes, but we still can’t have it. As much as we love barbecue sauce, that’s one ingredient we don’t tolerate on our table. This easy homemade barbecue sauce recipe not only nixes the HFCS, it’s super easy to make. Can I be honest with you though? It’s not {Read More}

Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcake

While you’re here, don’t forget to check out all of our gluten-free recipes! Garrett has fallen in love with a little book called The Pokey Little Puppy where five little puppies keep digging holes under the fence and escaping. As a result, they aren’t allowed to have dessert after dinner. All except for the pokey little puppy, who finally gets home after everyone else is asleep and – you guessed it – eats up all the strawberry shortcake. I don’t {Read More}

Remember when you were a kid, and use to play outside in the summer sun for hours at a time? Remember how bad those sunburns were when you forgot to wear your sunblock? Or maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who tan. I’m not! And boy do those sunburns hurt! Now that I’m an adult, I don’t seem to burn as easily anymore, but my kids – now that’s a different story altogether. I try (really, really try) to {Read More}
