Send Me Gluten Free

to your favorite board for easy reference
We received our sendmeglutenfree.com box this month and I found a few of my old favorites and a few new ones.

Do you spy what I spy?….

Yes!  That is a GF Mom Certified recipe card with a coupon.  I was especially excited to be able to participate in the September box. 


I love the idea of getting new gfree products in the mail each month.  It is a great way to try out something new and I have to tell you the granola came in handy when I needed breakfast on the go last week.

Stress No More! Gfree Meal Planning



I have a big treat for you today.  Do you ever wonder what to cook for supper? or you look in the fridge and realize your missing an ingredient for dinner?  What about when you need to stop at the store on your way home from work so you can make a gfree meal for your family?

As a busy mom with 3 little girls and a full time job, I know who you feel.  I understand the stress and also hate the idea of one more stop in my already busy day.  This is why we plan our weekly meals and align our shopping list.

I use EverNote to make my list, that way when I get to the store if I forget to print it out it is still on my phone.  When making your grocery list check your pantry, cabinets and fridge to see what you already have. This will save you money. Then only list the items need for your recipes.  I like to make a large supper and have the girls eat the leftovers for lunch the next day.  I also pick up some lunch meat for filling in lunches, when supper was so good everyone ate seconds and thirds. (It will happen) Watch our VIP video below for the full details and download the resources.

Here is a menu plan for the next 2 weeks:
Friday 9/5 - pizza
Sat 9/6 - buffalo chicken wraps/ BLTs
Sun 9/7 - orange chicken and rice
Mon 9/8 - hamburger and fries
Tues 9/9 - hotdogs and mac n cheese
Wed 9/10 - chicken nuggets and veggies/fries
Thur 9/11 - chicken tacos
Fri 9/12 - Pizza
Sat 9/13 - spaghetti and meatballs
Sun 9/14 - chicken legs and greens
Mon 9/15 - hotdogs and pasta salad
Tues 9/16 - chicken bites
Wed 9/17 - grilled chicken risotto

Birthday Love


Happy Birthday to the Great Men in my life!

Today we celebrate my husband's birthday. Next week will be my dad and grandpa's birthdays.  This year we were blessed to be able to celebrate them together.  They each got one candle, as not to burn the house down.  I made my husband's favorite german chocolate cake (gfree of course) and we mixed up a batch of homemade vanilla ice cream with coconut milk and honey(yes gfree, dairy free, and sugar free.. how do you like them apples)

Today I mixed up a batch of gluten free oatmeal cookies and substituted coconut oil for the butter to make them dairy free.  Again a hubby favorite.  Grab the recipe here.

Happy Birthday to you all too!

Mellow Mushroom with GF Mom Certified


While in Raleigh during August we got to experience our first Mellow Mushroom Pizza.  WOW!  The atmosphere was relaxing.  We choose to sit on the patio and enjoy the cool southern summer weather, as it had just finished raining.  It was a perfect way to end a full day of a gluten free expo.  Mellow Mushroom has a full gluten free menu and use a special blend made by Smart Flour Foods (More about that here).  

Now for the details. I order the Omission and it did not fail.  I sat back and waited after we ordered our House Special and Kosmic Karma.  The pizza arrived and disappeared.  The house special is our favorite.  The toppings were fresh and full of flavor.  I even ate the olives.  The crust did not fail us.  We are a hugh fan of Smart Flour's pizza crust and Mellow Mushroom did an awesome job of topping it with full on flavor. 



This is the House Special


This is the Kosmic Karma


It did not fail, I finished it all and we even order just a pepperoni to take back to the hotel with us.

Go visit Mellow Mushroom

A Peppa Pig Birthday


to your favorite board for easy reference

Birthday parties in general can be stressful, add in the food allergy aspect and anxiety can boil over.  One of the classes I teach around the country is BYOC (bring your own cupcake). Here is a link to our top 5 tips when hosting or attending a gluten free birthday party. 

This year Lillie turned two and she is absolutely in love with Peppa Pig.  We hung up our decorations a few days in advance and it made me smile every time she would point and say a character's name like Rebecca Rabbit or Cynthia Cat.  You can download your own Peppa Pig birthday pack here. I printed off a few of the sheets at home and then went to our local office store to print the cupcake toppers on card stock.  

Here are some great ideas for decorating for your Peppa Pig Party on Pinterest.

We used a simple vanilla cupcake recipe and chocolate frosting.
