5 Minute Meatless Nachos

Nachos are my favorite after school snack and I made this nacho snack in less than 5 minutes.

Taco Seasoning

There are lots of gluten free taco seasoning blends in the store, so I never really thought about making my own.  That is, until one day when we ran out.  And I had a huge craving for tacos.

Jareth and Fezzik... and Flourless Oatmeal Cookies

It snowed Thursday.  And not a good snow.  This was icky and wet and not enough to cancel school. As far as snow goes, it was pointless

We don't have sidewalks in our neighborhood and I'm pretty sure that our street is the last one in the state to get plowed so I had to trudge up hill, through the snow, to the school bus stop.  And then, in the afternoon, I had to slog down the hill, through the slush (because they still hadn't plowed) to get back home. 

It really made me miss summer...
And Veronica.

So I thought I would do a little summer reminiscing and I was looking through photos of me and Veronica and it got me thinking.
I don't think I ever introduced Jareth and Fezzik.

Barbeque Pulled Chicken and How to Poach Chicken

Barbeque pulled chicken on brown rice
with a side of sauteed spinach and mushrooms.

Insanely easy.  Exceptionally yummy.

Baked Brown Rice

I have a secret.
I don't have a rice cooker. 

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only non-gluten eating person in the civilized world that doesn't use a rice cooker.  Oh sure, I've thought about getting one. I've read all about them. Ma and I even went shopping for one.  But we decided it was something we could continue to live without.  At least for while.  I'm sure some day we'll get one and wonder how we ever survived without it.  But ignorance is bliss and for now, I'm blissfully ignorant!

25 Gluten Free Snacks

  Lists.  I like them!

When I first found out I had to give up gluten, I felt like all I did was think about food. I'm hungry, what can I eat?  Can I eat this? Or that?   Ugh!  I don't want to think about food all the time.  I got better things to think about!  Things like what's going to happen on the next episode of Phineas and Ferb!

Cold Comfort, Hot & Sour

Jinkies!  I can't believe it's been months since I've written anything!  I bet you thought I was hibernating with Veronica. Nope. I've just been kind of busy... and a little lazy.  And now I'm sick.
