Chorizo con Queso Dip with Food Should Taste Good Blue Corn Chips and Honeydew Margaritas -

This post is sponsored by Food Should Taste Good™, maker of wholesome chips and snacks.  Time feels like it’s speeding by faster than I can keep up!  Before we know it, Cinco de Mayo will be upon us and it’s one of my favorite celebrations of the year.  Though I have some tried-and-true favorite recipes I love to serve, it’s fun to whip up something new every year too.  One thing I love about having friends over for Cinco de Mayo is that it’s always a festive menu boasting big flavors but … CONTINUE READING

Southwestern Sub Sandwich

Southwestern Sub Sandwich. Smoked turkey, pepper jack cheese, chipotle mayo and a load of tasty veggies! -

This post is sponsored as part of Boulder Locavore’s ongoing partnership with Udi’s Gluten-Free, exploring gluten-free recipes, health and wellness.  I find my food inspiration often follows me home from my travels.  The southwest always gets me excited about big flavors, spicy sauces and fresh ingredients.  It becomes a theme in our household until I settle back into a usual groove. I’m not a huge sandwich eater but when there is a good one, I think there is nothing better.  … CONTINUE READING

Star Wars Death Star Waffles -

I’m super excited to share today’s post with you!  One of my family’s absolute favorite gift websites, ThinkGeek, asked if I would be interested in reviewing their Star Wars Death Star Waffle Maker and Dragon Cake Pan.  Of course I said yes, and had I not I’m sure my children would have held me hostage until I acquiesced. Unless you are living under a rock with no wifi you know the latest Star Wars movie The Force Awakens is available as of today for purchase.  We attended the movie in the … CONTINUE READING

Singapore Street Noodles

Singapore Street Noodles. Spicy, full of chicken, pork and shrimp and naturally gluten-free. -

I had the pleasure of living in Singapore as well as traveling there many times on business.  I fell head over heels in love with the food.  When I was living there, Singapore was divided equally between Chinese, Indian and Malaysian cultures all of which blended into a rich and exciting food scene. Despite all of the noodle dishes I grew to love, Singapore Street Noodles was NOT one of them! There were many noodle dishes that became my regulars.  We’d have them for breakfast in spicy … CONTINUE READING

Homemade Corn Tortilla Chips and Pico de Gallo

Homemade Tortilla Chips and Pico de Gallo -

I’ve been traveling over the past few weeks, with a portion of that in New Mexico.  I tend to eat chips and salsa often when there partially because they are naturally gluten-free.  Partially because they are just so darn good! Each time I travel there it reminds me how easy it is to make tortilla chips at home as well as pico de gallo; a fresh salsa that’s very popular and so easy to make.  Both of these things have seemed so easy to make that doing a blog post about them seems silly.  At the … CONTINUE READING

Gluten-Free Funfetti Minecraft Cake

Pillsbury Gluten-Free Funfetti Minecraft Cake -

This post sponsored by the J.M. Smucker Company, sharing exciting gluten-free cake mixes and frostings from Pillsbury! We’ve just exited birthday season in my house.  Both of my kids have birthdays within a week of each other, and like me they are gluten-free (and have been for a decade).  When learning they needed to maintain a gluten-free diet I vowed I would make special birthday cakes for them every year so they’d never feel left out. Over the years I’ve purchased special cake pans … CONTINUE READING
