Confession here: I’m not good at budget grocery shopping. However, I do want to be a good steward with our money and our income is variable, so I’ve decided that I need to get some help =)
Help for me has come in the form of a grocery shopping coach – Patti Laurens. I had...

One of our favorite, favorite restaurants back in Birmingham was a local Thai restaurant called Surin. Unfortunately, finding gluten free Thai fare (or any GF Asian food at all) can be difficult. That’s not going to stop me from eating Thai food though! By no means!
Over the past few years, I’ve tried my hand...

With our Monkey Bread recipe, you'll have the perfect breakfast for any special occasion. Sweet balls of dough are doused in butter and cinnamon sugar, then baked to make a delightful pull-apart bread.
Here is a waffle recipe that will get your mouth watering. You can use gluten free Bisquick to whip the batter up in just a minute or two. The resulting waffles are decadent and yummy with any topping you add.

While this recipe uses a box mix, you'll be altering it a little to make sure your cupcakes come out perfectly. You can make any color combination you want, to support your chosen teams.

Enjoy this yummy recipe that is based on Honey Chicken. If you love Chinese food, you'll love making your own gluten free versions at home. It does take a while to make this recipe, but it is well worth your time.

I got an email this week from a reader who wanted gluten free snack ideas, so I thought I’d share our current favorites =) I really wish we weren’t driving today because I could get some hilarious pictures of the kids digging into any three of these options. Maybe later =)
1. Raw Jicama with...

A good mug cake recipe is simple to whip up and great for those last minute sweet cravings. We often double this and make two cakes since it's hard to share. It really is a delightful dessert.
There’s often a lot of confusion about starting a gluten free diet. Most people, when they’re interested in eating gluten free, look up “gluten”, find out that’s it’s contained in wheat, and they figure all they need to do is avoid wheat in their diet. Then they hear that gluten might be in other grains...

It will be no surprise to anyone reading this that being a gluten free guest in someone else’s home could easily be compared to a minefield. This minefield extends beyond the food to the relationship between the host and guest. A recent article in the New York Times addresses many of the relational issues that...

Somehow I managed to forget, until now, to tell you what we can eat on a Primal Diet. Most of what follows this paragraph is excerpted from and based on the notes that John and I made while planning this experiment (on an incredibly long drive through the desert). All of our notes came from...

Today is day 10 on our 30 day Primal Diet experiment, and I’m feeling great. What surprising about that is the fact that I haven’t had anything to eat all day long. It’s currently 2:45 pm and all I’ve had today is some coffee and a couple liters of water. (We’re in south Texas and...

Today’s guest post is from Court Tuttle. Court discovered that gluten was causing a lot of problems in his life – like insomnia, muscle weakness, and erratic energy levels – because it was affecting how his body produced hormones. He mentioned this briefly in his last post about his success on a gluten free diet,...

I’ll admit this up front: When I first heard of gluten free soap, my reaction was, “What… really? Do we really need gluten free soap? Soap?” I mean, I’m usually the first person in the room to suggest a gluten free diet for someone suffering from IBS, stomach problems or any sort of chronic illness...

A chocolate mug cake recipe is awesome, but this ginger flavored twist is even better. For those who prefer a less sweet version of the traditional cake, ginger offers a more sophisticated taste experience.

Here is the first meal update for our 30-Day Primal Experiment. We won’t overwhelm you with daily meal updates, but we’ll keep track of what we’re eating and send it out every few days. I’m also planning to post the recipe for anything that I make that we love.
If you’ve been wondering what to...

It’s interesting to me when I look back at the past several years of how Mary and I have eaten. We went completely gluten free in 2003, and we basically ate whatever we wanted so long as it didn’t have gluten. It was essentially the Standard American Diet minus the gluten.
Then in 2006, we...

I just read your post making my own gluten free bread mix. I’m a little confused. You say that we can put the 2.5 c of flour mix in a qt size bag. Then you say we add the xanthum gum, sugar and yeast to the flour. So, my question is how does...

Today’s guest post is from Court Tuttle, whom John and I met through a business coaching group a few years ago. Court found the gluten free diet through a somewhat unconventional path and we are happy to get to share his story with you.
For almost a decade of my life, my energy levels were...

The first Bake Gluten Free Challenge ended on May 7th and it was a resounding success! I had so much fun reading the entries and looking at the photos that I’ve compiled a bunch of them here for you to read too.
Sahra White is the winner of the Bake Gluten Free Challenge and she’ll...

Making a doughnut recipe at home is the best way to get the freshest desserts possible. These doughnuts are fried, so they may not be the healthiest option, but they are well worth the extra fat.
