Cranberry Almond Coconut Snack Mix (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

I know there is some debate on whether Cheerios is really Gluten Free or not.  Since I have not been diagnosed with Celiac’s disease and only have a sensitivity to gluten, I decide that Cheerios are okay for me. The Wee One loves this snack mix.  While it was cooling on the baking sheet, he would randomly walk into the kitchen, take a handful of the mix, pop the snack mix into his mouth, and then walk out. I added some pumpkin seeds to my snack mix.  Yum! Happy eating, Traci Continue reading Cranberry Almond Coconut Snack Mix (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas While on a Road Trip

Today I’m going to share two gluten free breakfast ideas on this blog and then two more on My Food Journey for a total of four ideas. Since going gluten free, it’s difficult for me to find breakfast foods that are gluten free even though some hotels offer free breakfast.  Typically those free breakfasts have waffles, cereals, and pastries with limited amounts of fruit.  Sometimes there is yogurt provided also. I’m primarily gluten free and dairy free/ lactose free so that makes it more difficult.  (I do eat some dairy.) All of these are for road trips not when you … Continue reading Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas While on a Road Trip

Happy Birthday, Wee One!

It’s throwback Thursday. Today is the Wee One’s 12th birthday! When I was pregnant with the Wee One, the third trimester was just awful.  I had a lot of  preterm labor scares.  I went to the hospital 3 times prior to his actual birth because of false labor.  Once was by ambulance. I had been traveling between buildings that school year.  Right before leaving the middle school, I started having Braxton Hicks contractions.  I drank a bottle of water while driving between the buildings.  The contractions would not let up so once I got to the other building I mentioned … Continue reading Happy Birthday, Wee One!

Random Photos From Our Thanksgiving Trip – The Way Back Home

I’m not including the these photos in the Universal/ Disney blog post series. Sometimes the trip back and forth to your destination can create some of the best memories.  That is certainly true for our trip in November. We left for our trip 10 minutes after I arrived home that Friday.  We watched the sunset […]

My Goals for June

I’m going to be gone most of the month.  First I’m visiting my friend that I met when we did the Walt Disney World College Program.  I have never been to upstate New York so this should be fun.  Okay I’ve been to Niagara Falls, New York but that was only for the night.  On our way up there, we ended up driving through a little bit of upstate New York. Then during the days, I’m home I’ve got a lot of my plate.  Dance rehearsal practice, dance recital, Kung Fu practice, dental appointments, and Vacation Bible School. After all … Continue reading My Goals for June

5 of My Favorite Gluten Free Snacks

   Larabars These are a snack that I have loved for a long time not just since I went gluten free.  When my father-in-law was trying to watch his sugar, I introduced him to these bars.  When I tried them myself, I fell in love with them. I do have a recipe for homemade coconut cream Larabars. 2.  LiveGFree Pretzels These are part of the Aldi gluten free line of products.  These taste just like regular pretzel sticks.  Yum! At $1.89 a bag at my local Aldi, that’s not bad for a gluten free snack. I also like Aldi for … Continue reading 5 of My Favorite Gluten Free Snacks

Freezer Slow Cooker Kits – March 27, 2017

This weekend, I did some spring cleaning in my chest freezer.  I cleaned it out.  Then I made some freezer slow cooker kits. What are freezer slow cooker kits?  The kits are ready to go into the slow cooker.  You may or may not need to add some extra ingredients to the slow cooker. I ended up making 11 different kits this weekend.  My goal is to use 2 of them each week for the next 5 weeks.  During the 6th week, I will use the remaining freezer kit. During those 6 weeks, I’ll plan for 2 to 3 additional … Continue reading Freezer Slow Cooker Kits – March 27, 2017

Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes (Gluten Free)

This weekend was the Wee One’s first Boy Scout camp out.  His camp out was located 20 minutes from our house so it was not that far away.  He’s always been our homebody.  When he was in Cub Scouts, he would be the first one in the tent when there was any hint of darkness.  He would not emerge from his tent until it was daylight outside.
