    Gluten Free Unicorn Cheesecake

    Unicorn Cheesecake?! Yup! That’s what I said! I’ve been making this cheesecake for 10 years now and I couldn’t rave about this recipe more than I do. I initially found it in a magazine that’s now called Gluten Free Living. I absolutely LOVE this gluten free cheesecake recipe and have tweaked it over time to be the perfect dessert for my household. My daughter has been on a unicorn (unitorn) kick for almost a year and a half now, and upon seeing a fun unicorn dipping creation on Pinterest, my children asked to make it. I was in the mood for cheesecake though so we went with that and it…

    Delicious Gluten Free Brownies

    Delicious Gluten Free Brownies Yes, it’s true…these are gluten free and they’re damn delicious! I promise you! I’ve not had a single wheat infested eating friend think these are gluten free! They’re such a moist, chocolatey and decadent little treat that is ready in less than an hour! I stumbled upon this originally non-gluten free gem of a recipe on All Recipes and absolutely LOVE this platform for finding new recipes! You can’t go wrong with Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Brownies when in a crunch, but these seriously are crazy easy and I don’t feel nearly as dirty after eating them. They’re obviously not the healthiest treat…but totally okay since…

    Celiac Disease Diagnosis

    The Day My Life Changed I remember getting my celiac disease diagnosis on Wednesday, February 27th, 2008. What is Celiac Disease?….and how the hell do I even manage such a diagnosis? I was overwhelmed and slightly depressed by it all, if I’m being honest. The relief I felt having answers to all of my pain, medical issues, and constant exhaustion, is indescribable. Especially being one in which my medication was a diet change and not an actual mediation, but I was so angry. WHY?! In retrospect, I was angry becausde I didn’t know. I had no idea what to expect or how I’d function with such diet restrictions. Nobody taught…

    What is Celiac Disease?

    What is Celiac Disease? What is Celiac Disease? It’s an autoimmune disorder in which the body is unable to process gluten (a protein found in wheat, barley and rye). Consuming gluten as someone with Celiac Disease, the body begins to attack the small intestine. This attack leads to damage of the villi, which are small fingerlike projections that line the small intestine, and are meant to promote nutrient absorption. When these villi get damaged, nutrients are unable to be absorbed properly into the body. Think of it this way, no matter how healthy your diet is, you’re malnourished. Is it Hereditary? Celiac Disease is hereditary and there is a 1…

    Gluten Free Monster Cookies I have a wonderful friend that always makes cookies for everyone at Christmas time, and she wanted to make sure I wasn’t excluded being that I’m gluten free. It’s hard to believe it has already been 10 years, but she took it upon herself to try out a few different cookie recipes, and I am to this day in love with this recipe of Gluten Free Monster Cookies!

This recipe has served it’s purpose in my life – primarily while nursing! Oh…

    Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

    Gluten Free Sugar Cookies It’s no secret the gluten free life leaves you with many positive and negative side effects. As a positive, there are countless nutritional benefits, mostly being that you’re often cooking more from scratch and using less processed foods. But it’s a total pain in the ass until you figure out how to navigate this new world. A flour substitution is not that easy – the results are almost never the same, and it costs money to figure all of this out. Gluten Free Sugar Cookies is my way of testing each new Gluten Free Flour I try. What is a better test than an item made…
