Homemade Gluten Free Brazilian Cheese Rolls
Oh my gosh.  GLUTEN FREE BRAZILIAN CHEESE ROLLS.         I LOVE these things, and holy cow, I’m glad I discovered them.  I actually had never had one BEFORE going gluten free, so I couldn’t tell you exactly how they compare, but I can tell you that compared to the store bought gf cheese rolls, they are wonderful.  And they don’t cost $10 for a dozen.  Score! 😀 I wish I was exaggerating when I say that I […]

Pan Roasted Sunflower Seeds - so tasty! 1 comment
I’ve been eating a lot of nuts and seeds lately, and to keep it more healthy, I’ve been buying them raw.  I love a good raw almond in a salad, although I’m not yet in love with them by themselves.  The same goes for sunflower seeds.  The other day, I decided I wanted some roasted seeds, but of course, I didn’t want to buy any and get all that sodium and who knows what kind of preservatives in my body […]

I’ve decided that instead of doing one all-day massive freezer cooking section, I’ll break it down into an hour at a time.  While I love the idea of an all day marathon, it just isn’t realistic for me right now. Whadya think:  If I do one of these each week over the summer, I should have a good amount of meals/snacks ready when school and work starts again, right?  Unless, of course, we eat all the delicious, convenient meals along […]

Here in my neck of the woods, this winter has been fairly mild.  We’ve had a few big snowstorms, but there haven’t been a whole lot of them.  My heart goes out to those who have been shoveling themselves out of snow for weeks straight without relief.  Seriously, I’ve been miserable here with the gray skies and the cold, but man, I haven’t had to deal with what a lot of you have.   That said, oh my gosh, it’s […]

So, I kinda slacked off on posting my goals for 2013.  I shan’t make that mistake again.  I’m gonna get so specific on all my goals you’re gonna be sick of hearing about them.  I’m even making a list of recipes I have a goal of trying!  Ha ha ha, yep, that’s how I roll.  I cannot wait to try these recipes in 2014:     Parsnips, Bacon and Carrot Medley – one of my goals for 2014 is to try a […]

I still feel fairly new to the whole gluten free living thing, and so I’m constantly finding new recipes to try.  Here are some of my favorites I tried in 2013…thank goodness for the internet!  I hope you find some good ones that you’ll enjoy trying and eating!       Paleo Chicken Fingers – These didn’t turn out as crisp as they look in the picture, but man oh man we loved the taste and have made them multiple […]

If you have a garden and you grow zucchini, then you’re probably in the midst of craziness!  I absolutely LOVE growing zucchini, because it makes me feel like I’m an accomplished gardener, with all the produce I get.  Of course, if I’m honest with myself, well…let’s not go there.  I’m gonna pretend I’m accomplished and leave it at that.   There is always the question of, “what now?”  that occurs when we start harvesting those zucchini.  I am prepared this […]

It’s been an eventful week, and this one will be eventful as well.  I’m sending my daughter off today to a summer camp, and I’ve never had her gone for more than overnight before…yep, I’m a full blown emotional mom! 😉   I’m also scheduled to take a BIG leap of faith – LITERALLY!  Wednesday, weather permitting, I will be going hang gliding!!  I’m ridiculously afraid of heights, but it’s been a goal of mine for a year now, and […]
