Want the traditional Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie flavor without the milk, gluten and soy? Check out these cookies!
Lauren from Oatmeal With a Fork came up with these highly addictive, nearly identical, thin mint style cookies. What is even more awesome…they are grain free too! Yep! Don’t get freaked out by her choice of flour…I promise…you CAN NOT taste anything but super, delicious thin mint cookie flavor!

Her recipe is perfect as is and requires no adjusting, so head on over to her blog to get the recipe!
I’m a sucker for soups. I love cooking them. Most soups require some pre-cooking the meat, or chopping vegetables or both. Most of the time I enjoy that. Sometimes I just want to open cans and dump them in a big pot. That is what today’s recipe is (mostly) like-fast, easy and tasty. This recipe makes a large batch. So I froze the leftovers in individual serving sizes to take out for lunch at a later time. Make some gluten free pasta, like penne or rotini, and serve the soup over that if you wish. It’s good either way, but … Continue reading

Who doesn’t love a chocolaty cookie? This cookie reminds me of Lucy’s cookies. It’s more a dry and crunchy cookie than an ooey-goey one. Yet somehow they are highly addictive. And perfect for dunking in coconut milk (or whatever you drink). This recipe was adapted from Erin McKenna’s Babycakes cookbook. Also shared at Allergy Free Wednesday. Gluten Free Wednesday. Crunchy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies From: Adapted from Babycakes Cookbook Ingredients: 1 cup oil 1/4 cup xylitol 1/2 cup coconut sugar 1/2 tsp. liquid stevia 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 T. vanilla 1 tsp. salt 1 … Continue reading
I had a great restaurant experience not too long ago. We went to Sweet Tomatoes. For those unfamiliar, this restaurant has a large salad bar, soup bar, baked potato bar, bread bar, fruit bar and dessert bar. Even better, they have gluten free and vegan (milk and egg free) dishes and they are clearly labeled. Could I eat EVERYTHING? No, but I ate plenty. I didn’t even have to skimp and just have one or two things. The salad bar had 3 pre-made gluten free and vegan salads. And of course, I could have built my own if I wished. … Continue reading
Broiling fruit sounds crazy, I know. But with a grapefruit it is wonderful. I receive a lot of free health magazines from this cute little shop I hit up once in a while. I saw an “advertisement” in one about broiling grapefruit. I finally got around to trying it. I like grapefruit just cut open and scooped out. I never even put sugar on it. But for people who maybe don’t like the sourness of grapefruit, this is the way to go. Broiling the grapefruit makes it warm, extra juicy, and far less “sour.” It does not even take that … Continue reading
100,000! That’s a number worth celebrating! 200. That’s pretty big too! Say what? What does this have to do with finger gelatin? Nothing really. Not Irish and not Catholic, not prone to drinking and partying…I’m still celebrating St. Patty’s Day……with some green food. After all, St. Patrick (born A.D. 373) was one of the most prolific evangelists of all time with planting over 200 churches and baptizing 100,000 people. Prior to those achievements, he was kidnapped by pirates at age 16 and taken as a slave to Ireland. He later escaped only to return to his captors at age 30 … Continue reading

You can find the original recipe and article here. That article goes into much more depth. It’s worth a read. Serve these turkey burgers on a bun of choice. Or top with salsa and eat … Continue reading

One of my local news channels used to have a segment called Deal or Dud. They would investigate and review products and let the consumer know whether it was worth buying or not. Well, cookbooks can definitely fall into a deal or dud category. And I love using the library to scout out cookbooks before deciding if I should buy them or not.
