SCRUPMTIOUS SIDES! Macaroni and Cheese

WHAT?! MACARONI AND CHEESE?! YES! Of course! It wouldn’t be the holidays without this luscious, creamy, pasta-y, cheesy goodness we all know and love. In fact, a bad macaroni and cheese has been known to ruin an otherwise delicious family dinner (same thing with mashed potatoes, but that’s for another post). Thankfully, this macaroni and…

SCRUPMTIOUS SIDES! Pumpkin Cornbread

Now, I know I said I would keep Scrumptious Sides to 5 ingredients or less, but I had to make an exception for this. It’s practically impossible to come up with a delicious, gluten-free, allergen-friendly cornbread recipe with just 5 ingredients. Too many substitutions. It might be possible, but I have yet to come up…

COOKIE CORNER! Double Chocolate Crinkles

Alright, my first cookie recipe! I love making these cookies because everyone loves chocolate and everyone loves sugar, so the fact that they’re basically a chocolate ball rolled in powdered sugar makes them practically irresistible. One quick note about these cookies is that they are an oil-based cookie, so they are automatically dairy free. In…

Dunkin Donuts Already Started Selling Pumpkin Spice Lattes…

And you know what that means!!!! The holidays are fast approaching! YAY! Now, I know some of you are already stressed out because I know I am. We’ve already started making plans with family and friends for Thanksgiving and Christmas and it’s only August. And as November gets closer, we all know the stress is…

Spinach Dip (Always A Crowd Pleaser)

You know how each family has their own little food traditions that everyone follows, NO MATTER WHAT? Yeah? Well, ours is spinach dip. And it’s not just any type of spinach dip. You can’t buy this spinach dip in the store. No. You have to make it. Well, not you specifically. Just any family member…

Egg Drop Soup (A Fond Memory)

Fall is almost here and I’m SOUP-er excited for soup season. Nothing feels better than sitting outside with a warm bowl of soup, watching the leaves turn. So, in order to celebrate, I’m going to try to share some of my favorite soup recipes that can be enjoyed throughout the following months. Starting with this…

My Favorite Waffle Recipe (GF, DF, & NF)

When I found out I had developed wheat, oat, and rice allergies, I was super devastated. I loved all the breakfast foods from pancakes, to waffles, to my favorite, french toast. Learning that I had to give all of that up brought my spirit to a dark place. It’s been a while now since I’ve…

Who Puts Breadcrumbs in Turkey Burgers?!

*This post/ list stems from many personal experiences. The title of this post comes from my latest encounter. Seriously, I was so offended that I just couldn’t let this one slip between my fingers. I guess you could say that this was the last straw that FINALLY broke the camel’s back.* Dear Friends, If you…

A Quick Review: Black Bean Pasta

  It’s weird. It tastes chewy. BUT, it cooks like regular pasta. Remember to always salt the water. Unlike gluten-full pasta, you’ll never make too much of this just because it is impossible to do so. The thickness and length of the noodles are so small, an entire bag could just feed a family of…

My Journey Into The World Of GF Pizza (Recipe Included)

I miss pizza. Actually, I missED pizza because I feel like I’ve found the best recipe for me. After weeks of experimenting with different gluten-free crust options out there, I finally created the most satisfying one! Let me start from the beginning. First thing I did was look up gluten free pizza. This didn’t do…

Snacking on Goat Cheese & G.F. Crackers (Recipe)

So this all started out with a leisurely trip to the farmer’s market… Which was a huge mistake on my behalf because there’s no such thing as a leisurely trip to the farmer’s market with me. The farmer’s market to me is like shopping at Target to almost every female (and every shopping enthusiastic male)…
