One bite of a S’more and the whole thing breaks into pieces! Am I right? Chocolate and gooey marshmallow oozing all over your hands. If you are a mother I don’t have to explain this to you. You have experienced first hand how messy S’mores can be. Well, now we gluten-free mothers have an advantage.

We have found that making the Graham Cracker recipe in Irresistibly...

Finding a decent lunch to take to work can be a pain. I find myself envying my co-workers who can just pop a frozen entree into the microwave and enjoy a meal in minutes.

So I decided to try making my own gluten-free entrees. The trick was finding a container that could go in the freezer and the microwave, and then the trash. I decided to try paper bowls, and was happy to find...

Have you suffered a failed attempt at preparing gluten-free pasta? It can be a challenge to get it al-dente. More often it goes mushy right? Or it sticks together and you get hard spots. I’ve been there.

After hearing the frustrations of some of my facebook friends I thought I’d do a little post sharing some of the tricks I’ve found that work well when boiling...

Lately I’ve been running into more and more situations where other people are involved in feeding my gluten free kids. Just the other day I sent two of my sons to different Boy Scout camps. Trying to communicate the complexities of this diet left me concerned.

Well, this year my boys did a project I found very interesting. They ran some experiments to see if they could get gluten-free bread to stay moist beyond two days.

I’m no mathematician. Dividing and multiplying fractions makes me feel like I’ve lost 1/2 my mind! So just to prove to all of my past math teachers that I will NEVER use math in real life, I’ve made a couple cheat sheets I use when cooking.

I keep these “Cooking Measures” charts on my fridge and refer to them often. Anyone who does a lot of cooking...

Here is a favorite little trick I do to make easy meals that are under $10 each. It all starts with a Jennie-O Blue Ribbon Oven Roasted Shaving Turkey Breast which I buy at Sam’s Club.

It is a pre-cooked, gluten-free turkey roast I usually find near the spiral-cut hams and sliced cheeses.

I have had a few people email and ask me if there is a way to make UNflour without corn. Cornstarch is a key ingredient, so I was not sure how it would work.

Then I got a call from a dear friend last week who found she is allergic to both gluten and corn. She said she was “starving” and I believe her. So I tried making a couple of recipes from Irresistibly Gluten...

I was only 21 years old when I received the life-changing news. That day, I found out I would never eat another sandwich, cookie, or a piece of pizza again. Can you believe I was actually relieved?

I was exhausted from trying to figure out what was making me so sick. My doctor diagnosed me with celiac disease, a condition where my own body attacks...
