One Minute Instant Pot No-Fail Noodles

I like cooking and am glad it’s part of my job, but I don’t want to be a slave to my kitchen, and I’m guessing neither do you. That is another reason I love my Instant Pot.  It makes my life a lot easier.  Especially when it comes to making gluten-free noodles. I don’t like…

Should I Be Cooking Fresh Meals All the Time if I’m a SAHM?

Once a girlfriend who has twice as many kids as I wondered how often I cooked fresh meals, and was really relieved when I said I try cook less often but make bigger meals to have leftovers for the week.  As a SAHM, sometimes people think (or we pressure ourselves) that we as moms ought…

Meal Planning During my month of no shopping: Week one, Post 2 This is what I made for supper the other day: IP Noodles, roasted (frozen) broccoli and oven baked, breaded chicken.  My kids had fun helping me make the gluten-free chicken breading.

Gluten-Free DIY Panko Replacement

Guys, this may be one of the few times you can be truly glad you’re gluten-free…because homemade panko got way easier than the Pioneer woman’s bread-drying and hand-grating method (love her…just not that much work.) All you need is a few cups of plain rice cereal like Chex (Great Value works just fine) and a…

Instant Pot Ham and Bean Soup

I bought my Instant Pot  in Nov. 2016…I have used it about every day, multiple times a day, and can’t imagine my gluten-free life without it!!  It reduces my stress levels involving food prep significantly, especially since my diet has had to evolve so greatly.(But if you do not have an IP, don’t worry, a…

Goals, Gluten-Free Living and My first YouTube Video

I recently posted about productivity and goals.  I set an achievable goal for myself for January, but I was a little doubtful of my ability. I feel mostly confident in the creative world…except when it comes to technology. I challenged myself to learn some basic video-editing on Shotcut. Well, my geek hubby keeps elbowing me…

Amy’s Favorite GF, Egg-Free Waffles Recipe

This recipe was inspired by an Allrecipes Pumpkin Waffle recipe; however I have an intolerance to egg and found the original recipe’s batter way too dry, so I customized it to my diet and tastes.  I like to make a double batch of this and use 3/4 of the waffles to prep some of my…

My Favorite Gluten-Free Flour Blend Recipe

I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time paying $8 for a GF cup-for-cup flour blend.  In fact, I’ve never bought even a bag of that stuff, on principle.  Doesn’t seem right to capitalize that much on others’ health-related need for GF flours.  But enough of my rant–let me tell you what…
