Atlanta Here we come!

to your favorite board for easy reference

We are headed South again this weekend!  Yeah!  I love my Southern friends and family. I am super excited to be a featured Author at the GFAF Expo in Atlanta this Saturday.  Doors open at 10 am Saturday and I will be smiling and dancing till 4 pm.  

Make sure to stop by and get your cookbook signed and pre-purchase your own Kid Approved cookbook.  Just asked to have it signed and I will personalize it just for you! 

I wanted to share with you my tips for having a successful day at the expo

1. Wear flats or tennis shoes

2. Wear deodorant, not perfume or cologne

3. Bring some cash or debit card

4. Bring an extra reusable grocery bag for samples

5. Bring a pen for making notes

6. Bring you camera or smart phone to snap quick shot of your fans

7. Make sure to grab coupons from your favorite brands

8. Bring a water bottle

9. Bring your appetite for snacking

10. Bring your smile and patience, the expo is sold out and will be packed

11. Sunday is family day, no strollers on Saturday

12. Stop by the author area to talk to your favorites (like me) to get extra tips

Here is a ticket savings just for you!

Crispy Honey Mustard Chicken

Sometime you just need simple and taste food. With a girl allergic to eggs, I can not just dredge and coat like grandma did.  We have a solution. This recipe is dairy free, gluten free and egg free because everyone needs chicken strips. 

to your favorite board for easy reference

1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup grape seed oil
1 tbs mustard
1tsp oregano dried
9 chicken tender strips
Vans Panko bread crumbs (these are egg free too)


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Line your baking sheet with silpat mat or parchment paper. 

Combine lemon juice, honey, oil, mustard and oregano in sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk until smooth and well combined.  Cool slightly.  Dredge chicken tenders through honey mustard sauce, then through Vans panko. Place on baking sheet.  

Bake at 450 degrees for 30 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.

Serve with a seasoned batch of potato wedges and honey mustard.

Drumroll…. Kid Approved is live on #Kickstarter!

to your favorite board for easy reference

Kid Approved was the dream of my husbands, made with my girls in mind. This cookbook is a collection of kid favorite recipes from pretzel wrapped hotdogs to chocolate cake and everything in-between.  These two-hundred pages are packed full, beginning with dessert because every child wants dessert first to snacks, breakfast, menu plans, shopping lists and birthday party solutions.

This kickstarter will help fund the first ever Kid Approved, Mom Certified gluten free cookbook!  I am excited to bring this new gluten free cookbook to real life. 

Kid Approved by Best Selling Author, Blogger, Tiffany Hinton...AKA…GF Mom Certified.
Kid Approved by Best Selling Author, Blogger, Tiffany Hinton...AKA…GF Mom Certified.
Kid Approved is not just gluten free; it is also dairy free, peanut free, and soy free.  Many of the recipes are also corn free. The book is being designed to allow a child with food allergies to eat food like everyone else, that tastes like they remember. We pride ourselves at GF Mom Certified with making safe food with all the original flavors and perfect textures.  We do not compromise taste just to make safe recipes. We start with safety and finish with tasty. As a parent I know that bringing healthy food to the table every night can be a challenge.  Kid Approved is the solution, your allergy solution.
I started GF Mom Certified for my girls. As a mom with three little girls with severe food allergies and being gluten and dairy free myself, I know firsthand the fear and anxiety a mom faces when trying to feed her children. Food is ingrained in our culture for rewards, celebrations and comfort. The idea of not being able to share with others broke my heart. I wanted my girls to grow up eating the food of my childhood. I love our old family favorites like my grandmother's chocolate pie or Grandma Pecola's sweet potato pie.  GF Mom Certified launched after my first daughter was diagnosed with galactosemia at three days old and we needed to keep her alive. I had to learn to prepare food she would eat without dairy and without gluten, after a severe reaction at eighteen months old. I experienced a mother's gut-renching fear. I converted my blog and launched our website to provide gluten and dairy free kitchen solutions to others. These solutions came to be known as "Mom Certified" and "Kid Approved". Our first cookbook was published in April 2012.
Kid Approved will be our 9th cookbook and absolute largest to date with nearly 200 pages.  I am so excited to be able to share it with you and many other Mom's & Kids who otherwise may not be able to receive it without this Kickstarter.

… And the Winner Is

If you have paid the least bit of attention the in the last few months, you have read or seen Tracy (AKA Nutrimom - Food Allergy Liaison) having some social media fun. The result was a Muffin bake off sponsored by The Real GF Jules.  Here is the whole twitter craziness. (look for details under #Charlotte #GFAFEvent)

These winning muffins even flew all the way to Charlotte.  I have to say the staff at O'Hare and US Airways were extremely nice to the muffin tops and they made it all the way down south with out even a crumb being loss.

The competition - Brownie Muffins recipe here

This is the famous Nutrimom - Food Allergy Liaison

These muffins were Kid Approved even before they made the flight.

My little Huckleberry Josi

The recipe of the winning Breakfast muffin is here for you to give a try.

1/2 cup almond milk or coconut milk

1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup GF Jules Flour
