There is this joke when you are a new mom to just “put some coconut oil on it” for just about everything. Diaper rash, cut, dry skin, etc. You even hear the occasional joke of someone saying to use it for something totally irrelevant like “Didn’t get enough sleep last night? Just rub some coconut […]
With May being the official celiac awareness month, I wanted to dedicate a post to just that. Maybe I will clarify for some of you some things you never knew or some things you have forgotten. First off, celiac disease is NOT a food allergy. It isn’t something you can “outgrow”. Celiac disease is one […]
I remember the first time I tried a Flax4Life product. It was their blueberry muffin and I was extremely impressed. Incredibly flavorful, moist and the fiber in these muffins was just awesome. So, when I saw they released new products I pretty much had to try them. I mean, flax brownies? Did someone say chocolate […]
Food is all about balance. Balance means tasty treats too. I am all about treats but since my son is only 13 months old I have to come up with treats on the healthier side.

This morning I was mashing up a banana for my gluten-free son Brixton and had a bunch left over. I thought to myself, “What can I make with ¾ of a banana?” I was obviously hungry and in no mood to put in the time for banana bread so I came up with the idea […]
This morning while my son was playing with his toys, I decided to quickly make some gluten-free biscuits. I was craving them and they are nearly impossible to find at the grocery store. While making the biscuits, it occurred to me that I’ve learned some gluten-free tips and tricks along the way that I take […]
As you know, I am constantly developing recipes and finding new ways to make my favorite dishes; and I’m always on the look-out for healthier gluten-free alternatives. I came across a healthier gluten-free sweetener called ZenSweet and had to take a moment to tell you about it. First of all, it measures and tastes just […]
I have been raising my nearly one year old son, Brixton, on a gluten-free diet since he was born. Though I am still nursing him, I have been focusing on a grain-free or even a more paleo friendly approach. Meaning, I have been avoiding grains and even legumes up to now. He is a terrific […]
A creative alternative to mashed potatoes! I think we can all agree that mashed potatoes are pretty good. Children love them and adults love them.
