The Hiatus (I take a lot of those)

Wow.  Where to even begin?  I feel like I say that often.  Probably because it’s always such a long time in between my posts.  It’s been 5 months since I last posted about my latest conundrum. To be or not to be…. a stay at home mom. That was the difficult question.  Now that I…

My Daily Dose if Autism

The gluten free test kitchen has been losing speed lately. I’m finding it all very tough to keep up with. Carter already doesn’t eat a wide variety of foods so I’ve been finding it difficult and stressful to find gluten free foods that he would not only try but actually eat as well. I’m also…

My Daily Dose of Autism

Yesterday I achieved gluten free success! I made some waffles for Carter and he actually ate them.  He happily ate them and wanted more. I made a big batch for the rest of the week. All we gotta do is freeze them and pop them in the toaster when ready. Yesss! I decided to make…

I found a recipe for ingredients I had on hand and changed it…

On the agenda: Gluten Free/Dairy Free Pizza Gluten Free/Dairy Free “Cheez Its” Watermelon Ice Pops Okay, so the gluten free kitchen didn’t open up until lunch time.  Carter ate frozen waffles for breakfast (not gluten free).  I’m really just…

My Daily Dose of Autism

Picky, picky! Carter is turning in to an even pickier eater than he was before.  I’ve always felt that I had my “go-to” foods for Carter, just in case he didn’t eat what I cooked for dinner.  Well, now my “go-to” foods are a no go.  Carter is literally turning his nose up at them.…
