Pizza Planet Week

This week we started our movie related activities before watching the actual movie. We’ve had difficulties getting some of our children to eat vegetables lately, but I don’t want to put pressure or stress around food, especially healthy food. So this week we decided to eat pizza every night. Who doesn’t love pizza?!?! I’m sure putting…

You don’t Know What You’ve Been Missing

Oh Boy! I didn’t realize what I’d been missing! And my children had no idea because 2 of the 4 had never had it, and the other two were too young to remember the last time they had popcorn. For a few months now Ella had been reacting to something, but we had no idea what. We…

Dietary Sadness

Due to autoimmune issues our family is gluten-free, corn-free, xanthan gum free, and as of this week, dairy free. It sucks. A lot. Don’t get me wrong, most days are good, but some days I just wish I could walk in somewhere, grab something off the shelf and feed my children. Some days I just…

Pizza Night!

Tonight was Pizza Night! Last week we had pizza night too! Last month we had 3 pizza nights! We love Pizza! Pizza! Having a family with Celiac Disease and two little that can’t eat anything with corn in it makes pizza crust tricky. We’ve been experimenting and have found a very passable home made version that…

Two Uses for Ripe Bananas

When I’m happy, I bake. Despite the fires ravaging so much of our province right now, I’m happy. Albertans are rallying together helping each other out and making sure no one’s left behind. It’s amazing and humbling to watch! The past couple days I’ve been cooking up a storm, though I only have pictures of…

Raspberry Marshmallow Fluff

Yesterday I had left over egg whites and I promised I’d make something with them today. And it was AH-mazing!! Three egg whites weren’t enough for pavlova, I didn’t want to make a cake to go with my all time favourite frosting (boiled frosting), I made a million meringues recently. I wanted something different. Google didn’t…

Butterscotch Pudding for Mature Taste Buds

The butterscotch sauce I had left over from yesterday begged to be used! No, really. It jumped out of the fridge and said, “Eat me! Eat me now!” What could I do? I wasn’t about to disappoint poor butterscotch sauce now was I? Of course not! So how do you turn that runny sauce into…

Not Quite as Bad for You as Other PB Pies

Have you ever had a frozen peanut butter pie, with chocolate and caramel sauce? No? Well, you’ve been missing out! Actually so have I. I haven’t had one in roughly 7 years 😦 I know! It’s horrible! So tonight I decided I wanted one. But I didn’t want to use cool whip (or any other…

Easy Gluten-free Pancakes

Have you ever rolled out of bed, poured a bowl of cereal, taken a bite, only to discover your milk’s gone sour? In related news, today we had pancakes for breakfast! Yay! Some people think gluten-free pancakes are scary, but really all you do is use gluten-free flour instead of wheat flour. Works so well, even…

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometimes I just need a cookie. Really. Really. Badly. Sometimes it must have chocolate. This is the best cookie recipe ever! Doesn’t that look delicious?!?! So yummy and soft with just the perfect amount of sweetness! I could spend paragraph after paragraph talking about them, but I know you just want the recipe, so here it…
