How to Make Gluten Free Chicken Parmigiana

I suppose someone somewhere can cook up a gluten free version of any food, but I am certainly NOT that person. Since our family went gluten free about three years ago, there are certain things I pine for and miss oh, so terribly. We can’t just go to a restaurant […]

The Beginning of the End

Four years ago, my whole family (parents, siblings, nieces and nephews) took two giant passenger vans down to San Antonio for the Thanksgiving holiday.

It was a long trip (we got stuck in Austin traffic for a really long time), but we did a lot of fun stuff and all of […]

Overhauling the Lunch Box, One Juice Pouch At A Time #giveaway

I went to Shiftcon at the end of September, and was inspired (all over again) to make small changes to improve my family’s health and limit our mark on the environment.

One of the things I knew I needed(wanted) to change was our dependence on traditional juice pouches. I pack my […]

Moon Dip with Hormel Chili #HormelChiliNation

My family loves chili. Who doesn’t? When I make it for my kids and husband, I keep it simple so I know everyone will eat it. But when I’m looking for appetizers for a party, I use the most convenient, most stress-less recipes I know.

My mom recently told me about […]

An old favorite made gluten free. #giveaway

Project 365; Week 39

As far as weeks go, this one was pretty slow. Sept. 21 I hadn’t run in, like, two months or some nonsense. So I ran. And I haven’t run since. Sigh. It felt good, though. Sept. 22 Vet appointment with two dogs and one toddler. It was a riot. […]
