My Top 10 Favorite Gluten-Free Food for a Year recipes:

I have been mean­ing to high­light sev­er­al of these recipes for quite a while now — but was final­ly prompt­ed into action by one of my good friends ((and for­mer col­lege room­mate)) to throw a few recipes out to all the peeps who live a gluten-free life. One of the rea­sons I haven’t said much about gluten up to this point is because I don’t want to be incor­rect­ly per­ceived as “jump­ing on the GF band­wag­on” because it is “hot” right now. I cer­tain­ly don’t want peo­ple to think I want to steal some traf­fic because of the buzz sur­round­ing gluten.  Con­tin­ue read­ing

Taco Bowl Night! ((and the very best seasoning blend for taco meat))

Fri­day night. Those sim­ple words illic­it hap­py thoughts, free­dom from the sched­ules and respon­si­bil­i­ties of the week & a time to slow down and enjoy some of the things that have been rushed for too long. At least that’s what Fri­day Nights mean in our home! I can’t think of a bet­ter way to cel­e­brate all the things Fri­day night offers, than to have Taco Bowl Night!

This Hobo Dinner just may change your life!

 The first time I had a Hobo Din­ner was when I was 12. Mom, Dad, Mike & I were camp­ing in the sum­mer in CO. Once the tent was sent up, the camp­fire wood was gath­ered and the camp­fire was built, mom and I start­ed the meal prep. I remem­ber wash­ing my hands with water from our jug, mak­ing sure not to waste it! If some­thing dropped on the ground, I would do a quick rinse and try to make sure it became part of my brother’s meal ((haha­ha))!

Shock and Awe, people!

There is an unwrit­ten list of foods we par­ents have — PLEASE tell me I am not the only one… You know, a list of the untouch­ables. The “Untouch­able Veg­eta­bles”. “Those” veg­gies that I wouldn’t even dare to put on my kid­dos plates, the ones that illic­it the gag and cot­ton mouth. At the very top of my list is ASAPARAGUS. Now, I per­son­al­ly like aspara­gus or else I would NEVER buy it. (hah)

But, I have a dream, it’s a lit­tle dream — but a dream. A dream that I can make one meal and we all eat in peace, young and old, boy and girl, mom and dad. That the col­or of food isn’t what mat­ters, but that each col­or and shape is giv­en equal oppor­tu­ni­ty to be eat­en and … even enjoyed. That the din­ner table can be a place where tears and dis­con­tent do not show their ugly faces. Rather, din­ner is filled with laugh­ter and joy and even peace.
