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.
I love to garden. For the past few years I have not grown tomatoes. I found it really hard to have a vegetable garden without tomatoes. So this year I planted a few plants and have been giving the tomatoes to friends.
I try to take a turn through the garden multiple times a day and enjoy taking my morning coffee or an afternoon snack out to enjoy while watching the pollinators buzz around.
These little sugar cookies are so wonderful and they are good coated with sparkling sugar or without the crunchy coating. These are definitely one of those “people will never know” food allergy friendly treats.
You know the sadness that takes over you in the line at Starbucks as you look at all the pastries in the case knowing you can’t eat any of it…. That feeling must be why I’m always trying recipes for things I see in that case at Starbucks. Or in this case those little bags by the register at Starbucks.
I have to admit I was intimidated by this recipe. The resting and refrigerating make me think this recipe is too fussy to make, but it is pretty easy.
I do find it is best to let the eggs come to room temperature. And I melt the Earth Balance in the microwave and let it sit until it is room temp.
The batter is really thick. But there are so few ingredients I like to hand stir this recipe instead of use my mixer.
I use a small disher to fill the molds, and usually have enough to make two pans worth.
I hope these will make it easier to stand in line at Starbucks. Enjoy! -SB
It’s the end of the school year and it seems like everyday we need a snack to of with the days theme. Today is movie day so that means popcorn. We air pop our popcorn. Today we melted two tablespoons of coconut oil in the microwave to drizzle over the top and then added LOTS of colored sugar sprinkles. Let’s hope movie day is as festive as the popcorn.
