Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Pumpkin Muffin Mix

It’s the time of year for pumpkin everything.  Having food allergies and Celiac make it hard to partake in the pumpkin goodness.  One thing that I have found that is safe for us is Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix.  It’s even nightshade free!

All you need to add to this mix is sunflower oil, eggs and water.  It makes a light cake-like bread or muffin that even the the gluten eaters enjoy.  I hope you enjoy this pumpkin treat.


Apple Crisp (Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Nut-free, Nightshade-free)

It is apple season, well apple season is almost over.  I love making apple crisp. It is a recipe I think of when I think fall.  I love to eat it warm, even though I know that many like it cold.

This is a recipe I made many times before we were gluten-free and changing the recipe may have made it even better.  Plus, I get to use my favorite kitchen utensil, the pastry cutter.

Enjoy this lovely fall treat.
