Are you sensitive to the Gluten in your Make-Up?

makeup

After being diagnosed with Celiac disease over six months ago, I have gone through a transition in the way I eat, and live, which I have blogged about here over the past couple of months.  However, I have not yet explored the world of gluten-free cosmetics.   As I have been exploring food options I have seen references to gluten-free cosmetics, but decided that I would explore that option later. Just eating gluten-free has been enough for me to digest (pun intended).  Now that I am comfortable ...

Gluten-Free Hershey’s Christmas Mice Recipe

Gluten-Free Hershey's Christmas Mice

Over the past ten years I have made the Hershey’s Kisses Mice recipe at Christmas several times. It is like conducting an art project. Each of these little morsels ends up having a different personality; it all depends upon the size and shape of the almonds for the ears, the way the Maraschino cherry stem curves or sticks up straight and how long the stem is, how the cherry and the Hershey's Kiss come together after the cherry has been dipped, how large you make the red gel eyes and where they ...

However, this year, I added a Pumpkin Roll, and it was truly scrumptious. (that reminds me of a song from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) Anyway, the Pumpkin ...

My first Gluten-Free Thanksgiving

thanksgiving

It is my favorite time of the year!  This is the time of the year to be especially thankful for what we have, and to the extent we can, to spend time with the people we love, and like, most in the world.    Thanksgiving!!   Did it come up too fast on you?  It has for me. However, I am happy it is here, and I am looking forward to spending time with my family. I am one of four children.  When my siblings and I were young, we were encouraged to each choose something to contribute to the ...

Gluten-Free: For the Love of Betty Crocker

Betty Crocker Gluten-Free

Betty Crocker® has come out with a few new gluten-free products which I just have to rave about (even though I am not getting paid to do so.) However, if anyone from Betty Crocker® reads this, they are welcome to send some free samples our way. This past week we celebrated my son’s tenth birthday. We had the birthday party at our local gym which has a kid’s facility with a large play room, bounce house, various games like Foosball and basketball, a large climbing structure with slides, and a ...
