How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

We’re having a heatwave here in southern California right now. It’s been over 100 degrees this week. It wasn’t this hot **all summer**, but now in the middle of September – BOOM! My body knows it’s not even close to fall (or is it? who knows), but my mind says it’s time for fall things…

10 Gluten-Free Snacks for Kids

I don’t know about you, but I don’t make dinner every night. That came out wrong It’s just that when I think of “dinner” I think of something that takes a while to cook, like Lasagna or even Chicken Nuggets. I only make things like that a couple times a week. The other nights we eat leftovers…

Jujube Fruit Dairy Free Ice Cream

If you follow me on InstGood (AKA Instagram), then you know that we’ve been getting lots of local organic jujube fruit here in Southern California. The number one comment I get when I post pictures of jujubes is, “I had no idea it wasn’t just candy!” I don’t know how it’s possible, but I had actually never…

patio & dining room before & after

Knowing how much I LOVE seeing inside people’s houses (come on, tell me you don’t try to sneak a peak when you’re out for a walk and it gets dark…) I thought I would share mine with you. I’m pretty crazy about this place, and I’ve been slowly making it feel like home since we…

Natural Food Coloring for Frosting

I can’t believe that Ashley is 10 years old. It seems like a big deal kind of birthday. I remember feeling that way when Zoe turned ten. But Ashley’s birthday has always been a source of dread for me, because she had complications the day she was born, and we didn’t know if she was…

Salmon Cakes

Last week was hotter than it’s been, and I try not to use the oven as much when it’s really hot outside. So I made the kids healthy dairy-free ice cream for breakfast every day, with half the dates, and added protein powder. Actually the ice cream for breakfast theme has continued into this week…

Shortbread Gluten-Free Cereal

You may remember the scones I packed last year, on our road-trip to California. I quickly realized that they were great crumbled with almond milk, and that the kids preferred them that way. Just as Zoe loves “mac-n-cheese,” despite the fact that she’s never actually had “the real thing,” my kids are drawn to cereal,…

Our Gluten-Free Getaway in Montreal

Last week Andy and I had a gluten-free getaway to Montreal. We haven’t done something like that, just the two of us, since before Zoe was born (12 years ago)! Andy’s parents live just 2 and a half hours from Montreal on Lake George, New York. So, on Wednesday the 9th we left our girls with their…
