These Blueberry Oatmeal Popsicles are gluten free, soy free, peanut free, tree nut free
and has a dairy free and Vegan option.
Summer is a time to enjoy cooler treats but with that comes high calorie low nutrition treats...
Unless its a fruit based popsicle made from cooked oatmeal blueberry and a little maple syrup
to sweeten things.
Have you ever heard of black rice? This Black Rice Vegetable Stir Fry is naturally gluten free,
vegan and loaded with tons of nutrients and antioxidants.
Black rice is one of those things I always wanted to try. It has a deep rich color, bursting
with flavor along with the perfect chewy texture, any good rice should have. I've been looking
quality black rice for a long time. Since all rice isnaturally gluten free, I had high hopes that
Mr. N would tolerate this without problems. And he did. In fact, he loved it so much he
ended up having too much of a good thing (fiber) if you get what I'm sayin' ;-)
These raw gluten free Vegan Raspberry Oat Blueberry Bars are a natural red white and blue that are festive enough for a holiday or any day for breakfast or snack.
Raspberries and summer are just one of those things that seem to go hand in hand. I fondly remember being invited over to my neighbor's house to go raspberry picking as a child. If you didn't already know, I grew up in the country on 4 acres of land. My parents just happen to live in the middle of no where so they could keep their big pets i.g. horses. And then, because there was soo much land, why not get a donkey, a rabbit, a handful of dogs, some cats and adopt some kids too?

(This post was scheduled to for last week but was delayed due to technical difficulties with my wireless router. I have been able to keep up with social media thanks to my smart phone but most of my pictures were held hostage on my computer with no internet. So without further ado…)
Food allergy awareness week is over but I wanted to share some more thoughts and feelings regarding food allergies in general. I usually only post things that are positive and encouraging. But let's be honest. Food allergies can be downright depressing and very upsetting. Another great word is UNFAIR. Certain times it becomes overbearing and I can't help but cry and feel sorry for my sons.
Since it's Food Allergy Awareness week, I'd like to introduce you to some of the other lovely bloggers that cater to allergen friendly recipes.
While I've never actually met any of them in real life, I feel like I have gotten to know them through their own blogs. We all are managing different food allergies but share the same goal: creating safe foods that look and taste great.
Hey, wait just a minute! Don't just pfffft at these "boring" hamburger buns. They'd be anything BUT boring. These is a big, HUGE deal people. Food allergies can be horrible to deal with because so many simple things become complicated. For instance, these simple gluten free hamburger buns took almost a year to develop, yet any one who isn't allergic to wheat or eggs could simply walk into a grocery store pick some up. They wouldn't need to read labels or call the manufacturer and ask about cross-contamination. With so many more people being diagnosed with food allergies each year, we all need something simple. I've worked to make these buns as simple as possible, including that no mixer is required to make these.
Did you know that food allergy awareness week is all this week? It's time to speak up and educate others about food allergies. Millions of Americans (including children) are managing various allergies to food. The numbers only grow each year with more and more children being diagnosed. Parents are constantly worrying about their children's safety.
Perfect for breakfast or any time. These Lemon Blackberry Muffins are gluten free, egg free, dairy free, soy free, peanut free and tree nut free. If you have an allergy to oat, simply enjoy without the topping.
A long time ago (6 years) in a galaxy far, far away (Milwaukee)…. My son was born!

This Cilantro Lime Rice with Pulled Pork is a simple easy dinner. The whole meal is also naturally gluten free, egg free, dairy free, soy free and peanut free. The pork was made in the crockpot and rice in a steamer making it an easy dinner for us.
These Gluten Free Star Wars Mint Jedi Krispies are super easy and can be made in no time at all. I should know. :-) I had a very busy fun Spring break at home. My in-laws came and stayed with us for a whole week to celebrate Sir turning 6 years old!! I hope you all and a wonderful Spring Break and Easter. Did you go any where or do anything special?
