Back in the Swing of G-Free Parenting

Sorry, it’s been awhile!  Bryan, Logan, Mia, and I are doing great!  We went to dinner tonight at our local Perko’s with my Mom and Dad and I told Bryan, “Don’t order fries.”  As always, a big issue because the fries are not in a designated fryer.  Bryan and my Dad, who were going to Read more…

Halloween is quickly approaching and it is important to take the time to determine which candies are gluten free.  We tend to give out gluten-free candies at our house as there are so many great ones from which to choose.  My favorite gluten-free candy has always been Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so we always offer Read more…

Thinking Inside the LunchBox

Being a G-Free parent requires a fair amount of creativity, especially when it comes to packing a sack lunch.  Sure, we could send our kids off with the same old G-Free PB everyday, but with a little bit of extra effort, we can make them the envy of the lunchroom.  Here are a few ideas Read more…

Cruisin' GF

Jennifer & her ENTIRE family just went on an Alaskan Princess cruise, which included her Celiac Mom, Brother & Son Logan. The cruise was wonderful…well, let me re-phrase that…it was great, but the first two days were really, really rough.  We went on a cruise to Alaska .  It was beautiful, the ship was wonderful, Read more…

Everybody’s Doing It…..

Hey y’all, eating gluten free is definitely having a “moment”!  In just the last two weeks, I’ve read about two different celebrities eschewing gluten.   The first article I read was about Gwyneth Paltrow’s upcoming cookbook.  Apparently, she’s into eating healthy and one of the only things she tries to avoid entirely is gluten, because she Read more…

Easy G-Free Fix…Eat Ethnic!

When my son was first diagnosed with celiac disease a few months ago, I kept trying to find decent replacements for many of his favorite foods.  We tried multiple brands of tapioca hamburger buns with moderate success.  We suffered through more than a few not-so-tasty gluten free pastas, made of rice, corn, quinoa, and millet.  Read more…

Two Problems …Solved

Who knew I would end up being a full-time baker…well not really, but I feel like it.  We’ve made sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, 2 different types of granola bars and bread.  I guess it doesn’t really sound that bad, and don’t get me wrong, I like to cook and bake, but I think I’m Read more…

How Do You Catch That?

So last weekend, I’m hanging out playing Legos with the boys.  Ethan starts to whine that he’s tired.  Ayden, his four year old brother, retorts that he’s tired because he ate a Pop Tart at Grandma’s house.  This, of course, piques my interest, so I start asking about one hundred questions on where, when, how Read more…

United Front…So I Thought

We went out to dinner for the first time the other night since finding out that Logan is CD.  We just went to our local Perko’s to get something quick and affordable with the kids and my parents.    I have to say that Perko’s, especially our waitress, was great with understanding about cross contamination and Read more…
