Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Bars

* Affiliate links included. When I began my gluten-free journey last year, I mourned the loss of cookies, cake, and bread. My wonderful son surprised me with the yummiest treat ever — gluten-free chocolate chip cookie bars. Friends who tried them could not tell the difference between regular homemade chocolate chip cookies and the gluten-free version. The only difference between the two is the type of flour used — unfortunately there are no calorie or fat differences. What’s Caleb’s secret? King {Read More}

Better for You Banana Bread

When my husband and I decided to give our diet a complete overhaul, I had to start being creative with finding recipes that were not only healthy, but tasted good.

Not only are my kiddos in love, we are having it again for dinner this week. Stacy’s recipe calls for serrano peppers in the sauce, which I left out the first time.  I was {Read More}

Spiritual Antihistamines

It had been a while since I’d had any gluten.  (It’s amazing how quickly one can forget the terrible times I’d endured.)  As I reached for the golden glazed bit of sweet heaven I told myself, “It’s just a little bit.  Surely it won’t be that bad.  I probably won’t even notice I’ve eaten it!” My prediction held true until bedtime.  I took stock of my health and figured it would be safe to snitch another.  Surely if I was {Read More}
