Gluten Free | Carrot Cake | Dairy Free Cream Cheese

Really yummy gluten-free carrot cake!                       The cake started to lean to the side after sitting at room temperature. If you want to do a “layer” type cake as seen here, I suggest you keep the cake refrigerated at all times.  You can also do a sheet cake or cupcakes to avoid this problem. Tofutti brand cream cheese contains soy but would yield a firmer cream cheese frosting that may be less likely to cause the layers to slide.

Here comes Peter Cottontail…

Sweets for your little Easter sweetie… One tactic I have taken with Sammy’s Easter basket is to focus on toys, books and movies more than candy.  We are very fortunate although that are now many great companies offering gluten, dairy and dye-free candy options.

Autism affects you too…not just the 1 in 42 boys diagnosed

When I saw this newly released statistic I cried….not only for the children but for the 1 in 42 mothers, who just like me five short years ago, received the news that their child has autism. I remember feeling like I was free falling into a deep black hole.  You can read more about that day here: Sammy and the day of his autism diagnosis.  I knew very little about autism at the time but I knew for sure our lives would never be the same. I now know that what seemed like at the time a devastating turn of events, took us on a journey that...

Got gas?

Got gas?

They say the average person passes gas 14 to 23 times a day. How they figured this out is a mystery to me and actually quite funny if you imagine how they actually conducted this study. During my gluten and dairy eating days, I could have probably tripled or quadrupled that figure.  After changing my diet, I can actually say that I very rarely passed gas…believe it or not.  When people ask me to share my most embarrassing moments, I first ask if they want the stories that are flatulence related or otherwise. Almost all my embarrassing moments...

Cabbage Three Ways | Gluten-Free | Part One

I am obsessed with cabbage these days. I am not sure why as it has never been one of my favorite foods. Maybe my body is currently in need of something it offers nutritionally. Check this article out to read about all the nutritional benefits of cabbage: Dr. Mercola on the “cabbage advantage.”   I’ve prepared cabbage almost every way possible lately…cabbage slaw, cabbage soup and even stuffed cabbage rolls. Above you can see one of my versions of cabbage slaw. I love my food to be colorful and have great eye appeal...
