That Girl Video

Have you seen this video yet? Gluten Free Fun shared it yesterday.

Has anyone ever called you a picky eater because of Celiac Disease? This girl tells her story in such a simple and emotional way.

As people with Celiac Disease or Gluten sensitivity we aren't picky eaters, we wouldn't eat this way if we had a choice, we have to eat this way - it is our only option to stay healthy!

What a great way to educate others - good job Candice Bonaduce!

The twins are here

We are so happy to announce the arrival of our twins! Henry and Hannah arrived safely Monday via c-section. We are home and trying to get used to life.

My blogging will be slowed down over the next couple of weeks. As you can imagine keeping up with the feeding schedule of twins is a full time job. We are also receiving a number of meals, hopefully Gluten Free, from friends and family so I won't be doing much cooking.

Happy Gluten Free eating!

Chicken Spaghetti

For dinner I wanted to try something different.  I found a slow cooker recipe that called for Velveeta cheese and needed to find something to do with the other 8 oz.  After some research I came up with Chicken Spaghetti!

What You Need
3 Chicken breasts
1 box GF Cream of Mushroom soup
8 oz Velveeta cheese
1 can of Rotel (I used mild)
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper

Gluten Free Pasta

How to Make It
Boil the chicken and chop when done.  It took about 30 minutes to cook.  Start the water to cook the pasta. In a skillet mix together all ingredients but pasta.  Cook the pasta and drain.  By the time the pasta is ready the sauce will be good to go!

You can also bake this dish to make a casserole.  I didn't have any fresh veggies in the house but adding onion and green peppers would be tasty.

Good Ole Pumpkin Pie

There are some things in life that are just good.  Pumpkin Pie is one of those things.  Fall means apples, pumpkins and cookies in our house.  For Halloween I decided to make pumpkin pie to reward us for all our hard work of Trick-or-Treating!

I used the fabulous Libby's Famous Pumpkin Pie recipe.   Libby's Pumpkin is 100% pumpkin and clearly labeled Gluten Free!   The Gluten Free modification I made was to use Whole Foods frozen Gluten Free pie crust.  I also toned down the spices some because we like a stronger pumpkin flavor.

It came out perfect!  We enjoyed ours with some cool whip.
