Paleo Ghost Cookies

We needed some Halloween treats, so we made up a batch of The Food Lover's Primal Palate CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES but left out the chips, formed them into ghost shapes, and added two Enjoy Life chocolate chips as eyes.

Adorable aren't they?

Carrot Cake Muffins - Sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free

We found a recipe for gluten-free carrot cake on a diabetic website, it uses stevia and raisins as its only sweetener. We were skeptical but it turned out REALLY good! We made it into 24 muffins and we loved them. Little Chef ate THREE of them!
 We used this recipe HERE. Perfect for breakfast or a snack on the go!

Fall Goodies

Summer is over. :-(
But....that does mean we are back in the kitchen! :-)

We used a few of Elana's Pantry's recipes to whip up some Fall goodies! (In her recipes we use coconut syrup in place of agave syrup and coconut oil in place of grapeseed oil.)

First we made her Vanilla Cupcakes but added in some pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, we didn't get a photo of these those but they were really good!

Than we took her Ginger Cookies and turned them into Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookies. We replaced the ginger with pumpkin pie spice and were amazing! SO soft and chewy. 

Then we took her Chocolate Cupcake recipe, doubled it, added dark chocolate chips, walnuts, and made a wonderful cake. We made a frosting out of coconut cream, stevia, and 100% strawberry preserves. So rich!

 To make up for these treats we ate a really light dinner, well if you consider bacon light...heh. BLT wraps!

Our new cupcake book came today!

It is awesome!

It's Elana's Pantry's new book, which you can buy HERE.

I'll admit I hadn't planned on buying it as I get most of the recipes we need online, but I'm a huge fan of her blog and wanted to show my support so I went ahead and ordered a copy and that ended up being a wonderful decision because the kids went nuts over it! "We can make every single one in here? A whole book of cupcakes that are safe for us?! Whohooo!" They poured over the pages, looked at all the photos, and tried to decide which one to make first. The recipes are very easy and perfect for little chefs. They finally made up their minds to make the strawberry cupcakes with strawberry frosting, and they were amazing!

So light and fluffy and sweet!
I let the kids frost their own...

Which Little Chef took advantage of....not much cupcake under all that frosting!

The kids asked if we could make a different cupcake every week until we've tried every recipe in the book...sounds like a good idea to me! :-)

I love this photo because you can see Little Chef going nuts on a cupcake in the back ground. lol

He was not content with one and decided to frost another....and another. He ended up eating three of them and half a bowl of frosting I think!

Thank you Elana!

Meet Mr. Happy Hoppy

He's grain-free, gluten-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, and dairy-free but still as cute as a button! 

How we did it:

*We made a double batch of The Spunky Coconut's Vanilla Bean Cake 
and baked it into two cake rounds.

*After it cooled we cut one cake into ears and a bow tie, but the bow tie did't fit on our platter so we had to eat it as samples!(Her bean cake is perfect for shaped cakes as it holds up so well.)

* Then we made a batch of whipped coconut cream and frosted the cake. We then covered it in shredded, unsweetened coconut flakes, and used all-fruit jelly for the ears. We put on a strawberry nose and mouth, applesauce and dark chocolate for the eyes, and rice noodles for the whiskers!

How to have a Gluten-Free Awareness Event at your school!

This is going to be long but I wanted to include all the details so that other moms could see how easy, yet helpful, it is to do a little gluten-free event at a school where your gluten-free child attends. (I think I use the word "fun" a million and one times below...but that's because it was really so much FUN!)

As most of you know both my son's are sensitive to gluten.  Recently they have both been telling me that their friends at school have been asking a lot of questions at lunch time about why they can't eat wheat. Brother Chef was really upset about this because, as he put it, “I get so tired of saying the same thing over and over.”
 So I thought it would be beneficial to have a Gluten-Free Awareness Event for both their classes.

I just called my son's teachers and told them what I had in mind and asked if they thought it would be something the students would like. They loved the idea and we set up the date and times. 

Right around the same time I was trying to decide what one would do at a Gluten-Free School Event I saw a twitter post about a new book by Stephanie Skolmoski, called  "The Celiac Kid", and it sounded like the perfect book for our event! So I contacted her and she sent us a copy of her book to read and bookmarks!

I didn’t just want to read a book though and decided that letting the children taste some gluten-free cookies would be fun. My first thought was to make them but our school has a “No Homemade Treats” policy so that wasn’t an option. So I decided to contact some companies that offer gluten-free cookies and ask them if they would like to send samples for the event.


I ended up with SEVEN different kinds of cookies from three different companies!!! 

So I had the cookies and bookmarks, and then decided to see if I could think of any other items to add. I thought it would be neat to include some activity sheets and at first was unable to find anything at all. 

I finally stumbled upon a word search that listed different allergies. 

I also came across a coloring sheet.

And little Chef is obsessed with mazes, loves them so much, so Daddy Chef made this maze to include.

Brother Chef's special education teacher made copies of all of the activity sheets at school.

I also decided to contact a local pizza restaurant because they offer a gluten-free curst. They were so wonderful and provided gift certificates to give to each child!

And I had a few boxes of little activity packs that I added, they had tiny coloring books and crayons in them. Not related to gluten-free of course, I just had them on hand and had been needing to use them up so I thought they would be fun.

I ended up with such a wonderful variety of items that I decided to make individual Gluten-Free Goodie Bags!

All the Junior Chefs spent the weekend before the event helping me assemble the bag. We decided to put everything in brown lunch sacks and glued our label on them.

We had fun filling each bag, though it was hard to keep from eating all the samples! 

Want to know exactly what went in each bag?!

Again, I want to thank everyone that sent in items for this event!!

Below is a list of each item, each one links to the review we did when the items came in so make sure you click on each one so you can check out all the details.

Gluten-Free Goodie Bags:

I also wrote a little letter for parents, the teacher's put them in the students' "take home" folders.

Dear Parent,
Today your child attended a Gluten-Free Awareness Event! They learned what Celiac Disease is and how gluten affects the children that have gluten allergies or sensitivities. They were read “The Celiac Kid", talked about what life without gluten is like for celiac children, and were given gluten-free goodie bags.

If you would like more information about Celiac Disease ask your doctor, you can also find more information at www.celiac.com

If you are interested in buying gluten-free items you can find many products locally,

*insert local stores that carry GF products*

Or find products online at: www.glutenfree.com

A huge thank you goes out to our sponsors for donating items for this event!

Feel free to ask your child how they liked tasting a gluten-free cookie and what they think would be the hardest or easiest part of being a gluten-free kid!


Now it was time to go speak at the school! 

The first classroom I spoke at was Brother Chef’s special education room; there was a variety of ages in attendance, mostly younger children. The teacher introduced me as Brother Chef’s mom and told them I was there to talk about allergies. They were very attentive and curious. I started out by asking if anyone knew what the word “allergy” meant. They pondered this for a few seconds and finally one child said “Is it germs?” I told him that was a good answer and that they were very similar because germs make you sick and that if you have an allergy to something it causes a reaction, which can make you sick.
Then I asked if anyone could think of things that people could be allergic to. They needed a few prompts but eventually came up with animals, pollen, bees, and peanuts. I explained that some people can also be allergic or sensitive to foods such as wheat, eggs, dairy, corn or soy.  I told them that now I was going to read them a book about a kid who can’t eat wheat/gluten.
There was not a single peep while I read the story; they were totally engrossed in the book! The book gives many details about life as a child who can’t eat certain foods.  The boy in the book talks about how he handles eating at school, birthday parties, and explains s a little about the medical aspect as well. 

When I was done with the book they all started talking exciting at once.
“That boy has his own bag of food at school…just like Brother Chef!”
“I want to read a food label!”
“That boy is really smart, I like him.”
We talked about all these issues and Brother Chef was the center of attention while all the kids asked him a lot of questions about why he can or can’t eat certain foods.  He had a big smile on his face the whole time so I knew he was enjoying educating his friends about dietary limitations. 

Then I told the kids that some wonderful companies had sent them gluten-free cookies to try, they were so excited! Brother Chef and his friend passed out the goodie bags to the children and the teachers. (Don’t forget to make bags for the staff!) The kids loved the cookies and said they tasted just fine to them! They were pretty happy with the other items in the bag too, a few of the children started working on the little worksheets right away.  We talked more about foods and allergies while they ate and then it was time for me to go speak to Brother Chef’s regular classroom! 

This class was 4th grade so the book I was reading was a little under their reading level but because Brother Chef is in the class and they see him eating different foods the subject matter was relevant to them.  I opened again by asking what they knew about allergies and quite a few of the children listed the most common allergies. Some of the children knew names of medicines that would cause them to have an allergic reaction.  I read the book to them and it went ok, I could tell it didn’t hold their attention 100%, there was a lot of whispers and fidgeting but when I was done they had a lot of questions. They asked Brother Chef what foods he missed the most, when did he first know he couldn’t eat some foods, and what would happen if he ate a lot of the foods that he is sensitive to. Then Brother Chef passed out the goodie bags to them and that really got them involved! Everyone started comparing and trading their cookies. And then they found the coupons for a free pizza and they went nuts, a few of the children ran up to me wanting to know exactly where the pizza place was and what type of pizza could they get.  

And then something happened that brought tears to my eyes.  Brother Chef was sitting next to me and another student came up to him and proudly handed him one of his cookies.  I was a bit confused and said “Oh, that’s your cookie. You don’t have to give it back to Brother Chef.” The boy looked at me with a huge smile and said “But I want to give it to him. I like to share but he never takes my food when I offer and it makes me sad that he can’t but now I have something that I can give him!”
I think my heart melted a little at that point. :-)

Then it was time to go to Little Chef’s class! The age range for this room was 4-6 years old and they were so adorable.  I loved their answers to my questions so much! I explained what an allergy was and then asked if they could think of something that one could be allergic to.
“A bike?”
They sure kept a smile on my face!

I read the book and they were so adorable, they kept scooting closer and closer to me as the book got more interesting, by the end they were almost perched on my feet! 

 There were lots of cute comments during the story.
When the book listed a few items that contain gluten, including play-dough one boy yelled “So, if I was a Celiac, I couldn’t eat play-dough?”
When we got to the part about what the gluten does inside the body of someone with Celiac’s disease one girl said ““Well that isn’t very nice.”
They really enjoyed the story and asked a lot of questions about Will, the boy in the book. They liked his cape and said he sounded fun. 

After the book reading Little Chef passed out the goodie bags to all the students and the staff, he was so proud of those bags! 

I was a little worried about the cookies because toddlers can be so picky but they loved them! The teacher had suggested to them that they could eat one and take the rest home but…that didn’t happen as the kids kept tearing the bags open and eating all the cookies!
After everyone was done the teacher called each one up to the board so they could put their name on either “Yes” or “No” in answer to “Did you like your gluten-free cookies?”  and I was shocked that all but one said “Yes!!” 

Again,  this day was SO MUCH FUN and the kids really learned a few things and the boys were SO PROUD AND HAPPY! 

I would encourage all of you to also plan such an event at your child's school!
If you have any questions just ask away!

Review: Nana's Cookie Company

We were so excited when Nana's Cookies said they would send us some samples for our Gluten-Free Awareness Event! (Which is this Monday - Woot!) Sister Chef was the most thrilled because they are her favorite gluten-free cookie. She prefers soft cookies and Nana's are really soft, moist, and chewy! AND...they are only sweetened with natural fruit juice, so they are the perfect cookies for her!

When the box came in and Little Chef saw all the flavors he started yelling "Can I try them all? Can I try them all? We thought he meant "Can I try one of all the flavors?" So we absentmindedly said yes....and turned around when we heard him squealing and found him trying to gather up every single cookie in his arms!

We sure know why he wanted to claim them all, they are delicious. The Gluten Free cookies are free of ingredients that cause many food allergies, including corn, soy, dairy, eggs, casein and wheat! And as mentioned, no refined sugars!

It was hard to put them away to save for our event...we wanted to put them away in our tummies!
We did let the Junior Chefs taste one of each flavor, as promised!

Gluten Free Lemon Dreams:
These were Sister Chef's favorite, she asked right away if we could buy a couple boxes to keep on hand for lunches and snack. "They are so soft, yet sweet but not too sweet and I love the lemony taste! I bet they would be awesome with some homemade ice cream. They remind me of lemonade or lemon drops."

Chocolate Munch:
These were Little Chef's favorite, he's all about the chocolate! "They are soft! I like the way they feel in my teeth and they don't stick. The chocolate is so, so good! I want these everyday, for forever and ever! How do they make them so soft? Can we ask them? I bet if I smile really nice they will tell me..."

Berry Vanilla:
These were Brother Chef's favorite. He said "They are so smooth and great with almond milk. They don't stick in my throat. They would be good on a picnic."

Next time you are at the store look for these or you can buy them ONLINE!
Don't forget to check out their website HERE!

Thank you Nana's Cookies, we can't wait to share these with the school children!

Local Review: Rafferty's Pizza

When I found out that a local pizza cafe, Rafferty's Pizza, was now offering gluten-free pizza, I was really excited! It's very, very rare that we get to eat out and when we do there are not that many options...finding gluten-free, wholesome foods at restaurants is not always easy.

I contacted Rafferty's Pizza and asked them if they would like to participate in our Gluten-Free Awareness School Event and was thrilled when they said they would provide us with gift certificates and menus for our goodies bags!! What a special treat that will be for all the school children at the event!

Little Chef and I stopped by the cafe today to pick up the items and while we were there they treated us to lunch so we got to test out the gluten-free pizza, which was so much fun for Little Chef because he's currently obsessed with all things Leprechaun!

Before we even got out of the car Little Chef saw a leprechaun on the sign and he started yelling "Let's eat there so I can find his gold!!!" As soon as we walked in we were greeted by.....a leprechaun!

Little Chef eyed the pot in his hands for a long time before finally saying "I don't think his gold is in there, all I see are menus. He's trying to trick me!"

The manager and staff were very courteous and polite. I was impressed with their knowledge of what gluten-free options they offered. They really took time to make sure we were happy with out order and did not rush Little Chef when he couldn't quite decided what toppings he wanted on his food - there were so many choices!

They offer a size small, gluten-free crust which is 10 inches and you can either choose your own toppings or order one of their specialty pizzas. I was also told that you can order the pizza unbaked so that you can take it home to cook or for $5 you can also buy just the gluten-free crust so you can take it home to make your own pizza. Wonderful options!

They have a large selection of fresh toppings for their pizzas and salads. Little Chef loves salad so he was happy when he found out that he could also build his own salad. He ordered his own salad and pizza and we were just about to head back to our table when he saw the cookie display. Uh oh. He asked if he could have one but I told him they had gluten in them. He made a face but I reminded him that we had our own gluten-free cookies in my purse and he was happy again. We found a booth in the corner and sat down to wait. Little Chef decided to wander around a bit looking for gold. He looked inside plants and under tables but had no luck. He even looked in the bathrooms. lol (Which were really clean by the way.) The whole restaurant was really tidy and comfortable. Soft music was playing and the other guests were talking quietly so I think it would be a safe place to bring Brother Chef without causing him to have a sensory overload, so we'll have to bring him some time soon.  Little Chef also checked out the game corner and had fun driving a race car.

He came back to the table when his salad arrived. It was massive and the vegetables were really fresh and crisp. (There is nothing I hate more than soggy tomatoes but these were in tip top condition.)

He was very content with his salad and kept telling me how good it was! In fact, when the pizza came he didn't even look up, just said with a mouthful "I'll eat the pizza when I'm done with this yummy salad!"

The pizza looked and smelled amazing! It's been a long, long time since I've had pizza that wasn't made by my own hands so I was drooling in seconds. The first bite was pretty heavenly! The crust held together perfectly and had a satisfying crunch to it. The sauce was wonderful and there was a good amount of toppings. I was hooked but what did Little Chef think?

He said "I like it! I like the salad better but I like this too." He ate that huge salad and three pieces of pizza so I'd say he enjoyed it quite a bit.

All in all it was a great experience. The service was amazing. The food very tasty and the ingredients were of highest quality. The dishes, facilities, and restaurant were very clean and the atmosphere relaxing. We will definitely be back as I think it's the perfect family friendly place to eat. In fact Little Chef asked me "Can we bring everyone back soon? And we can all pick our own salads!"

Before we left he walked up to the leprechaun, stared at it some more, and finally started taking all the menus out so he would check to make sure the leprechaun hadn't hidden his gold under the menus! :-)

Thank you Rafferty's Pizza for supporting our gluten-free awareness event and for the amazing gluten-free lunch! Our only advice would be to consider offering some gluten-free cookies so that children who order the gluten-free pizza can have a dessert too.

Readers: If you would like to try their delicious pizza they have 5 locations in Minnesota: Brainerd, Nisswa, Crosslake and Grand Rapids. Check out their WEBSITE for more information.

*OVER* Review & Giveaway: Tropical Traditions!

So many readers were interested in learning more about Tropical Traditions Organic Palm Shortening that I decided to host a review & giveaway of the product!  

What is Palm Shortening? "Palm shortening is derived from palm oil.. In its natural state, palm oil is a mixture of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, with most of the unsaturated fat being monounsaturated fat. Palm shortening is palm oil that has some of its unsaturated fats removed, giving it a very firm texture, and high melting point. The melting point of our Organic Palm Shortening is 97 degrees F., making it very shelf stable. It is NOT hydrogenised, and contains NO trans fats! It is great for deep-fat frying and baking, and is not prone to rancidity. Since it has been separated from some of the unsaturated portion of the oil, it is colorless and odorless, and will not affect the taste of foods like Virgin Palm Oil does."

When the shortening arrived I had no idea what to do with it...because I had never, not once, used shortening before! I had always thought of it as such an unhealthy oil that I had never tried it. My mind was having trouble understanding that this shortening was a healthy option!  So, I tried to think of what I could use it for for and some memories popped into my head of when I was a child and my mother would bake. I remember greasing the pans for her with shortening. I got excited because I have been trying to find a more natural replacement for Pam.

I opened the container while we were making dinner and it looked just like shortening, very white and no odor to it. I smeared it all over the griddle and was satisfied with how well it worked, nothing stuck and the oil did not affect the flavor of the food. I am happy I can use it to grease all my pans now!

I had just cut up some potatoes for Jojos as was about to pop them in the oven when I thought "Hmmm, "real" Jojos are deep fried not baked, which I don't want to do, but I wonder how they would turn out if I coated them in a little of this shortening?" So I did. I melted about 1/4 of oil, added herbs and spices, and tossed that with the potatoes. When they came out of the oven they looked amazing! Normally our baked Jojos are a little dry but these were fluffy, crispy, and moist! The kids went nuts over them and begged me to make them like that every time.

Review: Mary's Gone Crackers - Love Cookies

Are you getting as excited as we are about our upcoming Gluten-Free Awareness Event?!

Today we got a box in from Mary's Gone Crackers, they sent us three different kinds of cookies for our event, and we were blown away by these cookies! The taste, the flavors, the ingredients....my goodness we could write a whole book about the amazing ingredients!!

The first thing we noticed was that they use coconut sugar, as opposed to cane sugar! This was wonderful news for Sister Chef because cane sugar, and all High Glycemic foods, really affect her. We switched over to coconut sugar ourselves a few months back and have been amazed with what a great sweetener it is. Sister Chef was excited to see store bought cookies that she could go nuts on and not worry about her blood sugar levels. Other revolutionary ingredients they use are; palm fruit oil, tapioca syrup, coconut oil, prune extract, chia seeds, quinoa flakes, ramon seed flour, yellow split pea flour, and ginger root puree! These are cookies that you will feel 100% good about giving to your child.

They are also organic, kosher, non-gmo, wheat-free, gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, no hydrogenated oils, no trans-fat, Made in the USA, and infused with love! How can you go wrong with that....you can't!

Little Chef was a tad overjoyed when he saw all the cookies and tired to dive into them without opening the packs first...he said he didn't have time to waste so was just going to gnaw his way though to the cookies!

After he calmed down we let the kids each taste a cookie before putting them away, in a hard to find place!!, to save for the event.

Junior Chefs' Opinions!
  Sister Chef: "I tried the Ginger Snap and thought it was really good, had the right amount of spice. I think it would be good if you had a tummy ache. I love that there is no cane sugar, so I could eat more than one and not be worried...if I wanted. These didn't have that "gritty" taste that lots of other gluten-free cookies have." 
Brother Chef: "I had the Double Chocolate. I liked the chocolate chips. I could have one in my lunch everyday and be happy. I bet my friends at school will like them too."
 Little Chef: "I ate the No Oatmeal Raisin! I think it's a trick because it taste like oatmeal but you can't see the oatmeal! The raisins are so soft and yummy but there is no oatmeal so you can't say it's an oatmeal cookie you have to say it's a NO OATMEAL cookie! It was good and tricky. Was it invisible oatmeal?" (Hah, he was a little obsessed with the no oatmeal title.)
Daddy Chef: Daddy Chef was so impressed with these cookies that he asked for his approval to be noted too! :-)

Next time you are at the store looks for these on the shelves or you can order them online at Amazon.
We can't wait to share these with the children at the boy's school!
