Wheat Free?


We’re thinking that our youngest (now 9 months) may have a wheat intolerance/allergy/something….

We’re investing in Mum Mums for this kid, but tired of buying cases from amazon.com

Any snack ideas for a kiddo at this age who is having issues with wheat?


I’ve yet to try this, but since it’s not realllly a treat, I’ll just post it :

1 Tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper

Mix together all ingredients and store in airtight container.
Use within 6 months for best flavor.

Yield: 2 2/3 tablespoons (2 tbsp + 2 tsp)

Thanks to Good Eats ‘n Sweet Treats!

I apologize for not giving my (our) verdict on some recipes! Things have just been super crazy!

Next week will be the return of Treats To Try! You can grab the button and get ready!

I tried Little Birdie Secrets’ granola and it was SUPER yummy! One of the better homemade granola recipes I’ve had! (How can you screw up granola? I don’t know, I’m picky!) My toddler loved it too, all that really matters, right?? :)We did all the “normal” granola things – on yogurt, on oatmeal, on applesauce (who’s idea was that?!) 🙂 But the best was just eating it straight up 🙂

I tried these mini cheeseburgers on a whim one night…SO good! They made a ton and we ate them all. Again, toddler approved! Hubby LOVED them! I normally don’t like to eat beefy things after I ‘slave’ over it, but I put away quite a few of these myself. I remember at the time there were things I wanted to change, but, now, I don’t remember. They’ll be appearing on the menu soon and I’ll be sure to make note of changes 🙂



I apologize for the lack of activity over here! I’m hoping in the next week to be back to the schedule I wrote out a few months back (with some tweaks!)

But for starters, look what my friend, Cara, made for me!!!


That’s right! I have an official button now! I’m giddy! This way, everyone can join in on the Trying Treats fun (which, will obviously be on Tuesdays now!) I’m going to see if I can figure out how to get a Mr. Linky up so we can all join in!

Thanks for your patience!

OH Also – if you have a foodie blog and I don’t have it listed on my blog roll and you’d like to be on there, let me know!

I posted on our freezer meal swaps on Once A Month Mom. This blog has QUICKLY become one of my favorite blogs! Peek around and I think you’ll agree!

Slight Break


We’re working on finding a new place to live. I plan on posting our most recent Freezer Meal Swap Recipes ASAP. Once we get plans finalized, I’ll be back on task 🙂

So a month or so ago, I made a chocolate cake and the recipe directed me to put flour in the cake pan. Thankfully, it was just for us to eat. I never would have taken it anywhere. It looked moldy and old!! I was bound and dertermined to never have that happen again! I found this great tip here: When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead-no white mess on the outside of the cake.
