Join The Lil Chef and Myself on our "Food Adventures"! There will be recreations of "Old Classics", exploration of new Allergy Free products (as they come out), the making of my many food cravings, and testing of recipes. We are ALWAYS trying to raise awareness of food allergies & intolerances one post at a time. This page Gluten Free, Wheat Free, mostly Allergy Free, hopefully, one day Yeast Free, NO red meat, Dairy, and Lactose Free.
I can't believe how fast time is going! I feel like we just moved, we've been in the new house for 5 months already! Well, so far so good. Thanksgiving turned out really well and I'm hoping Christmas will be even better. I don't have alot of money to do gifts this year but being here in a new place definitely feels like a Christmas present. I'm really happy to bring in the New Year here as well.
This is what happens when Mommy is tired... we have GF 7up cake with lemon & lime zest in it that my mommy made and LF ice cream for an after school snack.
(This is random) Ok, so I feel this is how your plate should look on Sundays for "Sunday Dinner" which I don't do lol! I was able to pretend like I made Sunday Dinner with the help of the leftovers from Thursday!
Alright! the December Menu is up!! decorated by me and The Lil Chef! I rolled over the food that I was supposed to make in November and never got around to. I doubt if I make all of this because I am cooking for Christmas and New Year's.
I am really excited about the Salted Caramel Popcorn though! The Lil Chef is really looking forward to the Chicken and Broccoli stir fry again.
We'll see how much of this I get around to. (I know I'm far in advance with this but I definitely want to make myself some lamb for my 35th Bday in January!!!)

I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
