On Valentine’s Day we express our love or appreciation to those we care about by exchanging cards and candy. This year I wanted to take it one step further. I wanted my family to know just how much I love them and what I appreciate most about them.

Each of us has a special gift or talent within us that when cultivated and allowed to blossom will make our homes a lovely place. The Valentine’s Day award is in recognition of the good ways we have used our talents over the past year.

The Festivities:

To eat-
Strawberry and milk smoothies with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate covered strawberries.

The Awards-
Courageous Compassion Award:
My oldest son earns the award for Courageous Compassion. He has the ability to make others, pharm adult and youth alike, for sale feel accepted. He has the courage to include everyone in his play at school bringing children of all aptitude together. Moreover, find he can sense when someone is hurting emotionally and help bring a smile to their sad face.

The Heart of Valor Award:
Our daughter earns the Heart of Valor award. She can recognize a need and willingly steps in to help. She is full of passion. She reminds us to view the mundane as a grand fairytale full of adventure. She teaches us to love everyone and even homework can be a delight.

The Radiant Heart Award: Our youngest earns the Radiant Heart award. He is warm and cuddly just like a giant teddy bear. He bares a gentle kindness. He is aware of other’s feelings and calmly goes about to give them comfort. If you say you are in pain he is there to rub your back. If you are sick or sad he will offer a hug.

The After Awards Party-
Watch the Wizard of OZ

I have a friend who’s son is allergic to practically everything from eggs, cheap milk, nuts, wheat, and corn. It is quite overwhelming trying to find gluten, egg, and corn-free products much less shop on a limited budget.   I started my youngest on a gluten free regimen a little over a year ago. While he is not strictly gluten free and is able to consume small quantities of wheat, I understand her heartache. To a newcomer most gluten free recipes  resemble an advanced chemistry experiment.

The prices for whole grain flours are insanely high and hard to find in many areas. The few gluten free recipes I did know of contained corn starch and xanthan gum (an agent that acts like gluten that contains corn). I have yet to find a viable bread recipe because the xanthan gum is pretty much a crucial ingredient. However, muffins, pancakes, and cookies seem to do well without it. This recipe for banana nut muffins originally includes xanthan gum. The muffins came out so light and fluffy without the xanthan gum so I omitted it from the ingredients list below.

I love that the flour mixture consists of only three items: potato starch (not corn), tapioca starch, and brown rice flour. I think a little bit of almond flour subbed in for the flour mixture would give the muffins a nice flavor.

Now for the eggs. I subbed in two tablespoons flaxseed meal mixed with four tablespoons water. Set aside a few minutes to set. Then I added an additional heaping tablespoon of baking powder. I did a happy dance of joy and emailed a copy to my friend.

Source: adapted from Gluten Free Baking Classics by Annalise Roberts

Yield: 12 muffins

2 cups GF Flour Mix*
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 packed cup very ripe chopped banana (about 2 medium bananas)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup canola oil

Preheat oven to 350 F. Position rack in center of oven. Grease muffin pan with cooking spray.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, and cinnamon in large mixing bowl. Add bananas and walnuts; stir to coat evenly.

Combine milk and oil in small bowl; remove 1 tablespoon of combined liquid and discard it. Beat in eggs. Add liquids to banana mixture and stir until just blended.

Fill muffin pans 2/3 full. Bake 18-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan and serve immediately or cool on a rack.

I have a friend who’s son is allergic to practically everything from eggs, viagra 100mg milk, price nuts, wheat, and corn. It is quite overwhelming trying to find gluten, egg, and corn-free products much less shop on a limited budget.   I started my youngest on a gluten free regimen a little over a year ago. While he is not strictly gluten free and is able to consume small quantities of wheat, I understand her heartache. To a newcomer most gluten free recipes  resemble an advanced chemistry experiment.

The prices for whole grain flours are insanely high and hard to find in many areas. The few gluten free recipes I did know of contained corn starch and xanthan gum (an agent that acts like gluten that contains corn). I have yet to find a viable bread recipe because the xanthan gum is pretty much a crucial ingredient. However, muffins, pancakes, and cookies seem to do well without it. This recipe for banana nut muffins originally includes xanthan gum. The muffins came out so light and fluffy without the xanthan gum so I omitted it from the ingredients list below.

I love that the flour mixture consists of only three items: potato starch (not corn), tapioca starch, and brown rice flour. I think a little bit of almond flour subbed in for the flour mixture would give the muffins a nice flavor.

Now for the eggs. I subbed in two tablespoons flaxseed meal mixed with four tablespoons water. Set aside a few minutes to set. Then I added an additional heaping tablespoon of baking powder. I did a happy dance of joy and emailed a copy to my friend.

I bought a package of chicken breasts on sale at the supermarket. It was one of those loss leader type of purchases. The item was not on my shopping list and therefore not on the week’s menu. However, online come Thursday night garlic cheddar chicken sounded so much better than leftovers.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken is best served right out of the oven. The butter creates this savory crunchy salty texture to the breading. Pair with steamed broccoli or a salad.

4 cloves garlic, minced
3 heaping tablespoons Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/8 teaspoon dried parsley
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – sliced thin lengthwise to make four fillets

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Melt the butter in a cast iron skillet, or oven proof pan,  over medium-low heat. Cook the garlic until tender and fragrant, about a minute or two (do not burn).

In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and salt.

Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter flipping to coat each side. Lay chicken in pan in a single layer. Top with cheese and panko mixture.

Bake 20-25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

Serve immediately.

On Valentine’s Day we express our love or appreciation to those we care about by exchanging cards and candy. This year I wanted to take it one step further. I wanted my family to know just how much I love them and what I appreciate most about them.

Each of us has a special gift or talent within us that when cultivated and allowed to blossom will make our homes a lovely place. The Valentine’s Day award is in recognition of the good ways we have used our talents over the past year.

The Festivities:

To eat-
Strawberry and milk smoothies with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate covered strawberries.

The Awards-
Courageous Compassion Award:
My oldest son earns the award for Courageous Compassion. He has the ability to make others, pharm adult and youth alike, for sale feel accepted. He has the courage to include everyone in his play at school bringing children of all aptitude together. Moreover, find he can sense when someone is hurting emotionally and help bring a smile to their sad face.

The Heart of Valor Award:
Our daughter earns the Heart of Valor award. She can recognize a need and willingly steps in to help. She is full of passion. She reminds us to view the mundane as a grand fairytale full of adventure. She teaches us to love everyone and even homework can be a delight.

The Radiant Heart Award: Our youngest earns the Radiant Heart award. He is warm and cuddly just like a giant teddy bear. He bares a gentle kindness. He is aware of other’s feelings and calmly goes about to give them comfort. If you say you are in pain he is there to rub your back. If you are sick or sad he will offer a hug.

The After Awards Party-
Watch the Wizard of OZ

I have a friend who’s son is allergic to practically everything from eggs, cheap milk, nuts, wheat, and corn. It is quite overwhelming trying to find gluten, egg, and corn-free products much less shop on a limited budget.   I started my youngest on a gluten free regimen a little over a year ago. While he is not strictly gluten free and is able to consume small quantities of wheat, I understand her heartache. To a newcomer most gluten free recipes  resemble an advanced chemistry experiment.

The prices for whole grain flours are insanely high and hard to find in many areas. The few gluten free recipes I did know of contained corn starch and xanthan gum (an agent that acts like gluten that contains corn). I have yet to find a viable bread recipe because the xanthan gum is pretty much a crucial ingredient. However, muffins, pancakes, and cookies seem to do well without it. This recipe for banana nut muffins originally includes xanthan gum. The muffins came out so light and fluffy without the xanthan gum so I omitted it from the ingredients list below.

I love that the flour mixture consists of only three items: potato starch (not corn), tapioca starch, and brown rice flour. I think a little bit of almond flour subbed in for the flour mixture would give the muffins a nice flavor.

Now for the eggs. I subbed in two tablespoons flaxseed meal mixed with four tablespoons water. Set aside a few minutes to set. Then I added an additional heaping tablespoon of baking powder. I did a happy dance of joy and emailed a copy to my friend.

Source: adapted from Gluten Free Baking Classics by Annalise Roberts

Yield: 12 muffins

2 cups GF Flour Mix*
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 packed cup very ripe chopped banana (about 2 medium bananas)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup canola oil

Preheat oven to 350 F. Position rack in center of oven. Grease muffin pan with cooking spray.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, and cinnamon in large mixing bowl. Add bananas and walnuts; stir to coat evenly.

Combine milk and oil in small bowl; remove 1 tablespoon of combined liquid and discard it. Beat in eggs. Add liquids to banana mixture and stir until just blended.

Fill muffin pans 2/3 full. Bake 18-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan and serve immediately or cool on a rack.

*GF Flour Mix
2 cups brown rice flour
2/3 cup potato starch
1/3 cup tapioca starch

On Valentine’s Day we express our love or appreciation to those we care about by exchanging cards and candy. This year I wanted to take it one step further. I wanted my family to know just how much I love them and what I appreciate most about them.

Each of us has a special gift or talent within us that when cultivated and allowed to blossom will make our homes a lovely place. The Valentine’s Day award is in recognition of the good ways we have used our talents over the past year.

The Festivities:

To eat-
Strawberry and milk smoothies with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate covered strawberries.

The Awards-
Courageous Compassion Award:
My oldest son earns the award for Courageous Compassion. He has the ability to make others, pharm adult and youth alike, for sale feel accepted. He has the courage to include everyone in his play at school bringing children of all aptitude together. Moreover, find he can sense when someone is hurting emotionally and help bring a smile to their sad face.

The Heart of Valor Award:
Our daughter earns the Heart of Valor award. She can recognize a need and willingly steps in to help. She is full of passion. She reminds us to view the mundane as a grand fairytale full of adventure. She teaches us to love everyone and even homework can be a delight.

The Radiant Heart Award: Our youngest earns the Radiant Heart award. He is warm and cuddly just like a giant teddy bear. He bares a gentle kindness. He is aware of other’s feelings and calmly goes about to give them comfort. If you say you are in pain he is there to rub your back. If you are sick or sad he will offer a hug.

The After Awards Party-
Watch the Wizard of OZ

I have a friend who’s son is allergic to practically everything from eggs, cheap milk, nuts, wheat, and corn. It is quite overwhelming trying to find gluten, egg, and corn-free products much less shop on a limited budget.   I started my youngest on a gluten free regimen a little over a year ago. While he is not strictly gluten free and is able to consume small quantities of wheat, I understand her heartache. To a newcomer most gluten free recipes  resemble an advanced chemistry experiment.

The prices for whole grain flours are insanely high and hard to find in many areas. The few gluten free recipes I did know of contained corn starch and xanthan gum (an agent that acts like gluten that contains corn). I have yet to find a viable bread recipe because the xanthan gum is pretty much a crucial ingredient. However, muffins, pancakes, and cookies seem to do well without it. This recipe for banana nut muffins originally includes xanthan gum. The muffins came out so light and fluffy without the xanthan gum so I omitted it from the ingredients list below.

I love that the flour mixture consists of only three items: potato starch (not corn), tapioca starch, and brown rice flour. I think a little bit of almond flour subbed in for the flour mixture would give the muffins a nice flavor.

Now for the eggs. I subbed in two tablespoons flaxseed meal mixed with four tablespoons water. Set aside a few minutes to set. Then I added an additional heaping tablespoon of baking powder. I did a happy dance of joy and emailed a copy to my friend.

Yield: 12 muffins

2 cups GF Flour Mix*
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 packed cup very ripe chopped banana (about 2 medium bananas)

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup canola oil

Preheat oven to 350 F. Position rack in center of oven. Grease muffin pan with cooking spray.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, and cinnamon in large mixing bowl. Add bananas and walnuts; stir to coat evenly.

Combine milk and oil in small bowl; remove 1 tablespoon of combined liquid and discard it. Beat in eggs. Add liquids to banana mixture and stir until just blended.

Fill muffin pans 2/3 full. Bake 18-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan and serve immediately or cool on a rack.

I have a friend who’s son is allergic to practically everything from eggs, viagra 100mg milk, price nuts, wheat, and corn. It is quite overwhelming trying to find gluten, egg, and corn-free products much less shop on a limited budget.   I started my youngest on a gluten free regimen a little over a year ago. While he is not strictly gluten free and is able to consume small quantities of wheat, I understand her heartache. To a newcomer most gluten free recipes  resemble an advanced chemistry experiment.

The prices for whole grain flours are insanely high and hard to find in many areas. The few gluten free recipes I did know of contained corn starch and xanthan gum (an agent that acts like gluten that contains corn). I have yet to find a viable bread recipe because the xanthan gum is pretty much a crucial ingredient. However, muffins, pancakes, and cookies seem to do well without it. This recipe for banana nut muffins originally includes xanthan gum. The muffins came out so light and fluffy without the xanthan gum so I omitted it from the ingredients list below.

I love that the flour mixture consists of only three items: potato starch (not corn), tapioca starch, and brown rice flour. I think a little bit of almond flour subbed in for the flour mixture would give the muffins a nice flavor.

Now for the eggs. I subbed in two tablespoons flaxseed meal mixed with four tablespoons water. Set aside a few minutes to set. Then I added an additional heaping tablespoon of baking powder. I did a happy dance of joy and emailed a copy to my friend.

I bought a package of chicken breasts on sale at the supermarket. It was one of those loss leader type of purchases. The item was not on my shopping list and therefore not on the week’s menu. However, online come Thursday night garlic cheddar chicken sounded so much better than leftovers.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken is best served right out of the oven. The butter creates this savory crunchy salty texture to the breading. Pair with steamed broccoli or a salad.

Source: adapted from Allrecipes
serves 4

3 tablespoons butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 heaping tablespoons Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/8 teaspoon dried parsley
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – sliced thin lengthwise to make four fillets

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Melt the butter in a cast iron skillet, or oven proof pan,  over medium-low heat. Cook the garlic until tender and fragrant, about a minute or two (do not burn).

In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and salt.

Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter flipping to coat each side. Lay chicken in pan in a single layer. Top with cheese and panko mixture.

Bake 20-25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

Serve immediately.

I have a friend who’s son is allergic to practically everything from eggs, pill abortion milk, hospital nuts, cheap wheat, and corn. It is quite overwhelming trying to find gluten, egg, and corn-free products much less shop on a limited budget.   I started feeding my youngest gluten free foods a little over a year ago.

1/2 cup canola oil

Preheat oven to 350 F. Position rack in center of oven. Grease muffin pan with cooking spray.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, and cinnamon in large mixing bowl. Add bananas and walnuts; stir to coat evenly.

Combine milk and oil in small bowl; remove 1 tablespoon of combined liquid and discard it. Beat in eggs. Add liquids to banana mixture and stir until just blended.

I have a friend who’s son is allergic to practically everything from eggs, viagra 100mg milk, price nuts, wheat, and corn. It is quite overwhelming trying to find gluten, egg, and corn-free products much less shop on a limited budget.   I started my youngest on a gluten free regimen a little over a year ago. While he is not strictly gluten free and is able to consume small quantities of wheat, I understand her heartache. To a newcomer most gluten free recipes  resemble an advanced chemistry experiment.

The prices for whole grain flours are insanely high and hard to find in many areas. The few gluten free recipes I did know of contained corn starch and xanthan gum (an agent that acts like gluten that contains corn). I have yet to find a viable bread recipe because the xanthan gum is pretty much a crucial ingredient. However, muffins, pancakes, and cookies seem to do well without it. This recipe for banana nut muffins originally includes xanthan gum. The muffins came out so light and fluffy without the xanthan gum so I omitted it from the ingredients list below.

I love that the flour mixture consists of only three items: potato starch (not corn), tapioca starch, and brown rice flour. I think a little bit of almond flour subbed in for the flour mixture would give the muffins a nice flavor.

Now for the eggs. I subbed in two tablespoons flaxseed meal mixed with four tablespoons water. Set aside a few minutes to set. Then I added an additional heaping tablespoon of baking powder. I did a happy dance of joy and emailed a copy to my friend.

I bought a package of chicken breasts on sale at the supermarket. It was one of those loss leader type of purchases. The item was not on my shopping list and therefore not on the week’s menu. However, online come Thursday night garlic cheddar chicken sounded so much better than leftovers.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken is best served right out of the oven. The butter creates this savory crunchy salty texture to the breading. Pair with steamed broccoli or a salad.

Cheesy toast is a flashback to my summer camp days when I was a youth. Each summer I spent two weeks hiking, clinic swatting bugs, cialis 40mg sleeping under a mosquito net, pills and taking cold showers at the Girl Scout camp near my home. I learned first aid, how to respect the American flag, that people actually drink pineapple juice and where all the unsold boxes of Girl Scout cookies go- in the cafeteria closets of camps throughout the country to be served during Girl Scout camps as a special treat (yum). At each meal there was a spread of silver pitchers filled with juices, milk, and water. We ate a real smorgasbord.

Sometimes I serve cheesy toast at dinner with a salad. I will add a sprinkling of garlic powder with the butter for a garlic version. The kids have converted me to eating non classified breakfast foods for breakfast, mainly leftovers. Cheesy toast is a warm and comforting choice on those mornings we are running late and need to grab something to take with us.

Melt the butter in a cast iron skillet, or oven proof pan,  over medium-low heat. Cook the garlic until tender and fragrant, about a minute or two (do not burn).

In a shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and salt.

Dip each chicken breast in the garlic butter flipping to coat each side. Lay chicken in pan in a single layer. Top with cheese and panko mixture.

Bake 20-25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
While on holiday in Florida we visited the Greek shops on the sponge docks of Tarpon Springs. We stuffed ourselves with Gyros and salad at Yianni’s and then walked off enough room for a tasty treat down the street at Hellas. If you are in the area looking for authentic Greek food then Hellas restaurant and bakery is the place to go. The chocolate baklava cheesecake was sensational. It was so rich it took three of us to finish it off.

This week when I was trying to come up with a salad to serve at my son’s Blue and Gold Banquet for Cub Scouts I decided on my Americanized version of a Greek salad with lettuce. Here

I have a friend who’s son is allergic to practically everything from eggs, here milk, nuts, wheat, and corn. It is quite overwhelming trying to find gluten, egg, and corn-free products much less shop on a limited budget.   I started my youngest on a gluten free regimen a little over a year ago. While he is not strictly gluten free and is able to consume small quantities of wheat, I understand her heartache. To a newcomer most gluten free recipes  resemble an advanced chemistry experiment.

The prices for whole grain flours are insanely high and hard to find in many areas. The few gluten free recipes I did know of contained corn starch and xanthan gum (an agent that acts like gluten that contains corn). I have yet to find a viable bread recipe because the xanthan gum is pretty much a crucial ingredient. However, muffins, pancakes, and cookies seem to do well without it. This recipe for banana nut muffins originally includes xanthan gum. The muffins came out so light and fluffy without the xanthan gum so I omitted it from the ingredients list below.

I love that the flour mixture consists of only three items: potato starch (not corn), tapioca starch, and brown rice flour. I think a little bit of almond flour subbed in for the flour mixture would give the muffins a nice flavor.

Now for the eggs. I subbed in two tablespoons flaxseed meal mixed with four tablespoons water. Set aside a few minutes to set. Then I added an additional heaping tablespoon of baking powder. I did a happy dance of joy and emailed a copy to my friend.

Cheesy toast is a flashback to my summer camp days when I was a youth. Each summer I spent two weeks hiking, price swatting bugs, ampoule sleeping under a mosquito net, and taking cold showers at the Girl Scout camp near my home. I learned first aid, how to respect the American flag, that people actually drink pineapple juice and where all the unsold boxes of Girl Scout cookies go- in the cafeteria closets of camps throughout the country to be served during Girl Scout camps as a special treat (yum). At each meal there was a spread of silver pitchers filled with juices, milk, and water. We ate a real smorgasbord.

Sometimes I serve cheesy toast at dinner with a salad. I will add a sprinkling of garlic powder with the butter for a garlic version. The kids have converted me to eating non classified breakfast foods for breakfast, mainly leftovers. Cheesy toast is a warm and comforting choice on those mornings we are running late and need to grab something to take with us.
