Cinnamon rolls - 2018 goals

2018 Goals – Breakfast

One of my 2018 goals is to make more special breakfasts for my family.  Another is to perfect a cinnamon roll recipe.  Today I accomplished both.

I made cinnamon rolls for breakfast on our day off of school.  It still isn’t a finalized recipe, but they tasted good.

I also went for a 5 mile walk/run because “run a 10K” is also on my 2018 goal list.

What goals are you working toward today?


Happy National Waffle Day!

Today is National Waffle Day!

So of course I made waffles.

I usually use Gluten-free Bisquick but it has potato starch in it and I wanted a waffle tonight.

It has been on my list of 100 goals for a few years, yes years, to perfect making waffles and pancakes from scratch. I seem to fail every time.

Tonight I tried again.

They were ok. Not crispy and definitely not a “I would make those again.”

Back to the drawing board and still on the list of 100.

Happy Waffle Day!

Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts

I love Katz doughnuts.

Gluten free, Dairy free, Nut Free, Soy Protein free, and Nightshade free in one yummy doughnut that I did not have to make.

I recently took them on a weekend get away with family to enjoy with my coffee in the morning.  Traveling can be hard when you are avoiding multiple food allergens. I have found that Katz doughnuts have become my go-to breakfast when traveling.


Homemade Unicorn Smoothies…Dairy Free!

Everyone has been abuzz about the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino.  Of course it’s a little scary to get drinks there when you are dairy allergic so…. here is what we did.

For the Pink portion:

  1. 1 cup of ice
  2. 1 cup of strawberries
  3. 1/4 cup mango nectar
  4. 1/4 cup SoDelicious coffee creamer (Plain)

Blend in mixer.

For the Blue/Purple portion:

  1. 1/2 cup blue berries
  2. 1/2 cup SoDelicious coffee creamer (Plain)

Blend in mixer

Fill glass half full of Pink then drizzle Blue down the sides of the glass.  Add some more pink and then top with CocoWhip and sprinkles.

Yum! -SB

My favorite Doughnuts

IMG_9245Sweets for breakfast are so indulgent.  It is nice to have something that feels like a treat some mornings.  We had tried some gluten free doughnuts but had not found a readily available one.  We of course love the Erin McKenna doughnuts while at Disney World, and the Silly Yak Bakery when in Madison.  Finally we have doughnuts to eat for breakfast Katz Gluten Free are the best doughnuts we have had since going gluten free.  We have loved every variety we have tried and one day I will order the creme filled ones.  I am afraid they will become my kryptonite.

Katz doughnuts are dairy free and gluten free.  They are also nut free and potato free.  We find them at a few local grocery stores (except those amazing looking filled ones) and our favorite health food store carries them.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do – Susan B.
