Easy Halloween Treats

I’m a couple days late posting this, the past week has been a little busy. Oh well, maybe these will be helpful for next year…? If you have kids, I’m sure you understand just how busy it can be, and making treats can be time consuming.  This year I scoured Pinterest for some easy treats…

Gluten Free Fried Chicken

A little while ago, we were running late and thought we would save the time and effort, and get chicken at the local grocery store. It was delicious as always, but my second oldest couldn’t have it. It is not gluten free because of the batter. I did cave and let her have the chicken…

Halloween Chocolate Bark

Nothing is more fun than cooking, baking and making things for an occasion. With a little over a week a way, I have started planning my Halloween party for the little ones. Thinking up treats and decorations, games and such…so much fun! This Halloween Chocolate Bark is so simple, anyone could make this, and it…

Gluten Free Powdered Donuts

Its really no fun when we go through the Tim Horton’s drive thru and the only thing gluten free to eat, is their yogurt…without the granola!  So the other day, we got some donuts and of course, our second child couldn’t have any. Maybe to some it seems unfair that we would still get them,…

Caramel Apples

These were so fun to make. I just love having the kiddos in the kitchen with me, their enthusiasm is so inspiring! I thought about making the candy apples, but figured with my kids the caramel would be enjoyed more.  I took the easy road and used the caramel candies. I want to mention this…

Marinara Chicken and Pasta

There is a great difference in making a pasta dish with marinara verse spaghetti sauce. It is a thinner sauce and only requires that the pasta is coated not dripping to get the flavour.  I really only discovered the use of marinara sauce a year ago, which is hard to believe, I know! We didn’t eat…

Gluten Free Cinnamon Buns

While these cinnamon buns don’t taste like the regular ones that I grew up on, they are enjoyed just as much.  I used the same dough recipe as in the Gluten Free Cinnamon Bun Pull Aparts. I like this basic dough recipe, it can be used for so many different things. A couple things worth…

Easy Chicken and Rice Casserole

First of all, this can be made in the slow cooker or in the oven, both are delicious! Today I whipped this up using the leftover chicken I had in the fridge and cooked it in the slow cooker. I am not usually this on the ball, quite often I will be found making supper…

Pumpkin Pie Bites

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I just had to share one more pumpkin recipe.  First time making this one, not hard just more time consuming. Pumpkin pie bites are basically the same as a pumpkin pie, just mini size as you can see. I wasn’t sure if they would be a big hit, simply because of all…

Pumpkin Cake Roll

I have been wanting to make a cake roll for quite some time. I wouldn’t say this recipe is quick and easy but the results are so worth your time and effort! I am going to share the basic recipe and then the different variations. The original recipe is for the jelly roll, and then…

Gluten Free White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Today I fiddled around with some ingredients, to make these gluten free cookies for my daughter. I put in all her favourite ingredients. These cookies have three different kinds of goodies; white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and Reese’s Pieces candies.  Personally I would replace the butterscotch chips with peanut butter chips , as butterscotch and peanut butter…

Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins

If you like pumpkin, you have got to give these a taste…and aren’t they so pretty? These muffins are just the perfect thing for this time of year! This pumpkin muffin is moist and fluffy topped with a cream cheese swirl. The recipe calls for pumpkin spice but that is not something I use or…
