Crazy For Cornbread

I like corn. Well except for the year and a half that I had braces. Corn mocked me during that time. But this post is not about corn on the cob nor my childhood orthodontic woes… This post is on my super-fantastic-tasty-scrumptious-delectable Cornbread!! I recently rediscovered cooking with cast iron. “Rediscovered’ might be a stretch…

Deep Fried Deliciousness

I have a confession to make: I used to be a half price appetizer kind of girl. Downright shocking, isn’t it? I fondly recall many an evening spent with friends, family, and my future hubby dining out. Our local Houlihan’s would have 1/2 price apps on Tuesdays from 5 to 7 p.m.; Chi Chi’s was…

Waffle a la Mounds Bar

Sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you don’t. I personally always feel like a nut in a less “literal” sense, but happen to prefer Mounds Bars… When I was initially diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I had bought boxes and boxes of frozen gluten free waffles. Blueberry, apple and cinnamon, flax…you name it, I bought…

It’s The Great Pumpkin (Pancake)!

Linus, “I’ve learned there are three things you don’t discuss with people: religion, politics and the Great Pumpkin.”  (From the classic movie, It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown) Summer just hasn’t been kind to me.  The heat and humidity have wreaked havoc on my curly hair.  Imagine having the grease up the door frame just…

I Heart Quesadillas (and Bacon)

I am a weird eater. Even B.C. (before celiac), I had “food issues”. For example, at the tender age of 18, I suddenly decided to stop eating any meat, chicken, or fish. However, I COULDN’T give up bacon. So, I told myself that bacon came from the “Bacon Tree”. This is my twisted way of…

Thanks For Feeding The Celiac

In taking a brief pause from the back to school mayhem, I (happily) realized we attended two tremendous gluten-free friendly picnics this Summer.  I admit it, my expectations “food-wise” are fairly low when it comes to friends and family members “accommodating” my disease.  That sounds harsh, but I totally don’t mean it in a bad…

Peanut Butter & Honey “Truffles”

Have I mentioned that I LOVE peanut butter?!  From kindergarten through the twelfth grade I ate a peanut butter sandwich every single day at school (over 2,000 PB sandwiches consumed!). Recently, I discovered an amazing site which pays homage to one of my favorite delicacies.  I truly think the Peanut Butter Boy is my long…

One Ugly “Calzone”

Let it show for the record that I in no way hold Chebe Gluten Free Bread responsible for the debacle I have created in my oven. Let me set the scenario for you all…  Hubby has just walked in the door at 6:30 p.m. from usual gridlock commute from hell.  He’s hungry.  He does not…

Guac Totally Rocks!

I have a special place in my heart for avocados… When I was first diagnosed three years ago with Celiac Disease, I had no idea what the heck was safe to eat. I made the usual newbie mistakes, thinking “wheat free” labels meant gluten free (and totally glutening myself in the process). I was terrified…

Curse You Gluten Free Bloggers!!!

Ok, I don’t mean this literally. Please don’t shun me from the blogging community. But, c’mon people, do you really have to post such luscious, tasty recipes of gluten free goodness? Let me explain. In less than two weeks, I will be going on vacation (and attending a podcast expo) with my hubby in Las…
