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...

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.

To solve this problem I decided to make a card that explained what my kids can and can’t eat, and made it...

Do you ever get dinner all ready and then realize it’s missing something? Gotta hate it when that happens and you’ve got company coming for dinner! That’s when I whip out this last-minute fruit salad. (And I mean last minute. I’ve made it in under a minute, whew!)

My favorite yogurt flavor with this salad is Lemon, yum! And of course it is to-die-for-good...

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.

Who doesn’t love Banana Bread? I know it is a favorite at my house. And not just for a snack. We like to make what we call the “Ultimate Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich” by putting peanut butter and bananas between two slices of banana bread. Divine! Or just peanut butter on the banana bread is a terrific sandwich when packing for a picnic. The banana bread stays so soft and moist, it...

A great way to make breakfast on the go is to make pancake-breakfast-sandwiches.  I often make a triple batch of pancakes from Irresistibly Gluten Free (page 30) and assemble the sandwiches and put them in individual baggies and freeze them. Then the kids can grab one on those mornings they are in a hurry and just warm them in the microwave.

Here is a solution. Use the Cream Soup Mix recipe from Irresistibly Gluten Free (page 14) and leave out the instant dry milk. Then when you are ready to make soup use:

 

2 tablespoons Cream Soup Mix

1 cup milk substitute (like rice milk or soy milk)

and follow the cooking directions in the recipe.
