Back to Bento

Well the kiddos are back to school now after Christmas Break. So now is the back to bento for Big Momma. I know my kiddo is looking forward to her bentos and her new styling blue purse like lunch bag,  thanks Grammy!  Today’s bento is leftover GF Dijon chicken and rice. One thing about bento […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Our latest thing with all the rhubarb growing like mad in the garden is to try to use it whenever possible.  I have trained my kiddo not to pick just one ripe one, but wait for a bunch to be ripe and pick a bunch then we will cook with it.  So the other day […]

Little Lovin’ Bento

I made todays bento for my kiddo with some of the stash I had because I really need to go shopping and there was no left-overs from dinner and the creative juices were hiding this morning from lack of sleep. So she will still be happy because it is GF Lasagna, made with the rice […]

3 Tier Barbie MMF Cake

My  oldest baby is turning 16! I don’t know how much longer I can call her my baby, LOL. To me she is always and forever my baby girl. Oh sniff sniff… So with her big Sweet 16 party on the horizon I checked into local bakeries to see how much for a super cool […]

Cute Kitty and Puppy Cupcakes

My kiddo wanted something special to bring to school for her birthday and since she is my last kiddo I will basically make whatever if possible. I try to make something cool cause I am blessed to be a stay home momma that LOVES to bake and add some type of crafty edge and I […]

Homemade Cereal Breakfast Bar Gluten Free Too!

My little one is on a gluten free diet . We believe she is better gluten free, as we think she might have a “intolerance”. We think this due to the fact if she eats say spaghetti and meatballs (both containing gluten from the wheat) and garlic bread, she gets tummy pains. We notice this at […]

Bunny Veggie Frittata Bento

I love to make Frittatas, because they use up the leftovers and no one ever complains! In fact my kiddo said this was the best dinner ever and wanted seconds.  Luckily I had made a big one so we all had seconds and I had some left over again from dinner for her bento today. […]

Best GF Tempura

So I was wanting tempura last night like there was no tomorrow and the mix I had was not GF due to the wheat flour. I did not feel like making 2 separate kinds of tempura mix so I decided I would just go for it and make my own batter GF version. If you […]

Gluten Free Tofu (Vegetarian) Pierogies

 Once in a while I get a bug to make traditional perogies by hand. The store bought ones will only tide me over for so long.  Plus with my little one having a gluten sensitivity I feel bad for her because she loved them so much. There are so many GF recipes for pasta so […]

Best Fresh Green Bean Recipe (blanching & Freezing)

The garden is now producing beans also my neighbor kindly gave me some of his, I guess he has a ton coming in (I’m jealous).  So I blanched some along with the zucchini I had and used my seal a meal device, then put them in the freezer for winter, the rest I saved for […]
