“Go Away Flu” chicken and rice (and heart-shaped carrot) soup






On Monday evening, my little gluten-girl woke up complaining of just not feeling well.  She’d been a bit feverish that day, and had been coughing off and on.  She’s asthmatic, and fairly susceptible to respiratory infections; I gave her some Tylenol and after staying up an extra hour (to make sure she was feeling better), … Continue reading »

Gluten-Free Cheesecake – Pecan Crust






My homemade cheesecakes have always had crushed graham-cracker crusts.  When a fellow gluten-free gal asked if there was any chance I could make her a GF birthday cheesecake, I embraced the challenge!  Because I’m cheap, I didn’t want to purcahse GF graham crackers.  (For starters, the best I’ve found come from a bakery in Colorado … Continue reading »

Gluten-Free Cheese Crackers






I like to make homemade crackers.  I liked to make them before we went gluten-free.  I even took a cracker making course, once.  This, coupled with my obsession for Cheez-Its (and the disappointing fact that there really is not a good GF Cheez-It substitute on the market that *I* have found) led me to begin … Continue reading »

Breakfasts: First week of May, 2011






(Yes, that’s a homemade gluten-free waffle with pure maple syrup and a hefty pat of butter…no, it’s not on THIS week’s menu, but I wanted to show it off anyway).
