Growing up...

Two posts.. in ONE week?? Whatever has happened to me?!?!? LOL! Ok so I've been slacking! This one isn't even about food!!!  It's about one of the loves of my life... and how she is growing up too fast!!

Seriously? Can they just STOP growing up on me? They get smelly & mouthy & ..... le sigh. Oh well, suck it up, Mom! Enjoy it while it lasts, huh? At any rate, my baby girl, Kaelyn turned 5 the beginning of June and in August she will join the ranks if school-going children everywhere. I'm gonna have a hard few weeks until I realize I enjoy the quiet LOL! We've started slowly grabbing school clothes one suit at a time and I'm letting her pick and she has done well.

Gluten-Free Cornbread Recipe

My husband loves cornbread with his chili. I prefer crackers, Well a wheat free girl only has so many options. I'm not ready to try my hand at crackers yet so I opted for a GF cornbread...

Gluten-Free Homemade Twin Bars

I found this recipe here @ "The Sweet Details" (CHECK OUT THIS BLOG!!!! Drooooollll!!!) and wanted to make it for father's day, so I adapted it to GF and slightly larger for the size pan I used.... I apparently also can't read because I just realized that I used sweetened condensed milk, but hey, it worked so I'm leaving it! LOL!

Please ignore his wheat laden Oreo Frosting topped
Confetti Cupcake that The Princess wanted to make him also....
FOCUS On the yummy wheat free "twix "bar!!

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Cupcakes

I am finally getting the hang of this!!! I wanted carrot cake! I LOVE CARROT CAKE! But I wasn't crazy about some of the ingredients I found in the GF recipes online... mainly xanthan gum that I am staying away from on the principle that it's expensive and I can't pronounce it... and coconut??? Uhm.. ew? I also don;t like raisins in my carrot cake and George doesn't like nuts in his breads/brownies/cakes so this is also without those but walnuts are traditionally added (3/4-1c).

Hopefully you remember (and have tried!) the last post about gluten-free waffles that I raved over. I made them again and they came out just as yummy! I really liked the texture so I based the flours for this recipe on that one.

And in the mornin.. I'm making (gluten-free) WAFFLES!!!

Yes, I know.. Donkey..Shrek. Everytime waffles are mentioned in this house... EVERY TIME.. someone yells out that quote, and now I am tagging them gluten-free because I found the PERFECT recipe in the Complete Gluten-Free Diet and Nutrition Guide that I borrowed from the library.

Gluten-Free Waffles!
What a break from the gluten free cereals I've been having!!
