Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies

Gingerbread cookies and holidays are pretty synonymous. You can use this recipe to make gingerbread men but I prefer to “cheat” on this one. Making small 1 inch balls and flattening them with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar is way easier, and the extra sugar on top gives a nice sweet layer!Continue reading “Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies”

Betty Crocker makes a fabulous gluten free cake mix which I love to “fancy up” depending on the season! Why struggle with mixing different flours when youContinue reading “Pumpkin Spice Cupcake Heaven”

Looking fabulous

Growing up I was a tomboy. I loved baseball, lived for fishing with my dad, and loved being outdoors. My mom tried her hardest to introduce me to Barbie dolls and all things pink! Granted, I did have a strawberry shortcake bedspread on my canopy bed, but I loved my He-Man figures more than myContinue reading “Looking fabulous”

Bottoms up!

Or two. Maybe three.   During my BCD (before celiac disease) days, I never gave much thoughtContinue reading “Bottoms up!”
