Gluten-Free in Monterey Bay, CA

Our Little Surprise

Hey there! Is anyone still there? Well, I am still here, too. Just had a big surprise come into our lives. That’s why I have been gone for a couple of years. You see this surprise took/takes a lot of work, care, time and effort. But he is oh-so-worth it. Oops! Did I give it […]

Lillian Reviews My Pumpkin Muffins

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins

Lillian is awesome! Lillian from Lillian’s Test Kitchen. Just have to say that. Seriously! She makes grain-free, dairy-free, cane sugar-free, and soy-free recipes for the first time on camera. She also went to my dream school. And, she’s a fellow actress. OK, I haven’t done anything for over a decade, but I am still one […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, No Bake Cookies

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, No Bake Cookies

When I was a teenager, I had a step-mother. (Technically, she is my ex-step-mother, now, but we don’t need to get into that.) Anyway, we had the typical teenager/step-mother relationship. In other words, not the best. There were many reasons for this that I also won’t get into here. But, the cool thing is she […]

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins

Chipotle Burrito Bowl

Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah! Sorry, but that’s how I feel. No particular reason other than I am overwhelmed (as is just about every other person on this planet), and I really just want to sit and watch TV for about a week. Do you ever get days like that? I don’t even HAVE TV anymore. […]

Gluten-Free “Breaded” Fish, Tartar Sauce, and a Giveaway

"Breaded" Fish and Tarter Sauce

I have a confession to make. I eat pretty darn healthy most of the time, but I have a weakness. Tartar Sauce. I really, really, like tarter sauce. I could dip just about anything in it. The best tartar sauce is the one you get when you go out for fish and chips. You know […]

Gluten-Free Chocolate Macaron with Salty Peanut Butter Filling

Macarons! Have you had them? You should. They are fabulous. As of just a couple of weeks ago, I had never had these little French cookies. Then, something wonderful happened. My SIL gave me a fabulous birthday present. Well, gave really isn’t the right word. It’s more like she “shared” with me. But who could […]
