Paired with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, these beer-infused cakes are a delicious treat!

{Gluten-Free}Beer Infused Strawberry Shortcake

It is strawberry season here….yes, I said strawberry season. While everyone up north is freezing, down here in South Florida we are just beginning to harvest. U-pick farms will open soon and there will be an abundance of sweet, ripe strawberries.

You may be wondering…

Why would you put beer in a Strawberry Shortcake?

Normally, I wouldn’t, but awhile back I was in the midst of taste testing gluten-free beers for the 8 Gluten-Free Beers to Celebrate Oktoberfest post and I came across New Planet’s Blonde Ale. I had already planned to use one of the beers for a recipe, and had been thinking brownies, but the crisp sweet taste of the Blonde Ale made me think dessert and I wanted to use it. I remembered I had a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Vanilla Cupcake mix sitting in the pantry and a thought of genius struck me. Why not use the beer to make the cupcakes? No one is paying me for this idea (though if they wanted to I would not refuse!), it was just a light bulb moment. I originally tried out these cupcakes in October, but I wanted to wait until strawberries were in season to share!

Easy Gluten-Free Meal Planning with Prep Dish

Easy Gluten-Free Meal Planning with Prep DishAll opinions are my own, I received a free trial week through the Prep Dish website.

The Dinner Time Battle

I don’t know about you, but my number one enemy in getting myself organized is the kitchen. It is not that I don’t like to cook, but no matter what I have tried, I just can’t seem to get the everyday meal planning together. Sure we will eat one or two good meals at the beginning of the week (these are the fantastic ones like Arroz con Pollo that you see on this blog), but by the end of the week dishes are piled up and my husband is telling me (after we eat hot dogs and rice for the 3rd night),

It is like I’m living at a college frat house.

Not exactly what you want to hear from your husband.

Delicious cookie bars filled with peanut butter, oats and chocolate. There is something for everyone!

The Busy Mom's Easy {Gluten-Free} Monster Cookie Bars

Can’t forget about the cookies!

This holiday season has me running around like a chicken with my head cut off. It is my daughters first “real” Christmas. Technically it was last Christmas since she was born on the 23rd, but we were in the hospital, so it doesn’t really count. There is so much excitement surrounding her first Christmas. Taking pictures and buying presents, I almost forgot about making out favorite holiday cookie. Monster cookies are awesome and I needed a cookie for our cookie exchange. They have something in them for everyone- peanut butter, m&ms, oatmeal, chocolate chips. I knew they would be perfect.

Gluten-Free Goodness!

I don’t know about you, but I love getting gifts. It does not have to be a big gift. Little gifts are fine too. When I was teaching, I loved getting all kinds of different gifts during the holidays. Student’s would bring ornaments and all kinds of little things. It was so much fun.

Now that I am out of the teaching game I don’t get as many gifts for Christmas, just a few from my family, but that doesn’t mean I love them any less. Below I have given you just a few things that are on my wish list that I am sure anyone, gluten-free or not, would love! All the items below are not only gluten-free, but are also safe for those with Celiac!

A Gluten-Free Christmas, Fun and Festive Banana Bread

Baked in a ceramic mini loaf pan, these gluten-free banana breads are perfect for everyone on your gift list!

Fun and Festive Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Nothing says Christmas like fresh baked banana bread!

Before going gluten-free, every Christmas I would bake tons of mini banana breads and pass them out as little gifts. Everyone goes bananas for banana bread! This simple recipe was inspired by a recipe of a good friend (I don’t know where she got it, but it’s really good!). Miss Jane is quite the expert when it comes to banana bread.

I couldn’t let becoming gluten-free ruin my Christmas tradition. I had to make the recipe gluten-free. Turns out it was not that hard and no one can tell that it is gluten-free. I get requests for this recipe all the time. You are going to love it!

Macaroons with a Purpose, Miami is Kind Bakery

Delicious macaroons in a variety of fun flavors, all for a cause!

Miami Is Kind Macaroons Title

Baking with purpose.

There is a new gluten-free baking company in town. When I was contacted by Miami is Kind, I was very excited. There are not a lot of gluten-free bakeries in Miami, and macaroons are delicious! Once I learned more about the bakery, my excitement grew. Founder Silvia Planas-Prats is out to do more than provide the world with delicious, gluten-free macaroons. She is out to create a social revolution by providing opportunities for young adults with autism and other disabilities to hold gainful employment.

Silvia is originally from Spain and relocated to Miami to find better opportunities for her son, who has autism. After fighting her way through the education system to give him the best opportunities available, she realized that once he left the education system, there were little to no opportunities for him. She has set out to change that.

Aguadito de Pavo, Peruvian Turkey and Veggie Soup

The perfect use for leftover turkey and vegetables. This “throw it all in the pot” soup is full of flavor, with just a bit of spice.

Peruvian Turkey and Vegetable Soup

Peruvian Roots.

Growing up my husband’s family owned a bakery in Peru. Located in Lima, they sold more than just bread and pastries, they also sold meals, like Arroz con Pollo, and around the holidays, turkeys. Turkey is traditionally the main protein at a Christmas feast in Peru. My husband raves about his mom’s roasted turkey, but what he speaks about more is the soup that they would have the day after Christmas, using up all the turkey leftovers. Aguadito de Pavo brings about fond memories in our house. This Thanksgiving we had a lot of leftover turkey, and we knew that this was the perfect soup to make with it and we didn’t have to make any adjustments to make it gluten-free, which is always a plus!
