About Me

My photo
I am mom to a 15 year old boy and identical twin 6 year old boys. I am the wife of a wonderful man. I have had celiac disease for 15 years. Those things define me in that order, everything else falls in line! I homeschool because the public school system was just letting my smart child slip through not learning a thing, on the honor roll no less. While I eat a completely gluten free diet I don't keep a gluten free household. No reason to make the kids suffer with me! I am writing a gluten free cookbook (slowly!) because I can't stand all the gluten free recipes out there that use five hundred flours, and I want to eat normal food like non-celiacs do. Just like I used to, I use one all purpose flour that ROCKS, The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour. No, I do not get paid to say that ;) Every recipe on my blog can also be made with regular flour, use it just like I use my gf flour!

Yummy gluten free snack at home

I realized a few years ago that I just love plain old white rice. I know, I'm weird. I recently started taking leftover white rice and throwing it in the microwave with a slice of american cheese on it, and was amazed at how good the creamy rice that comes out is! I bought some velveeta cheese slices and tried it melted on some rice, and omg am I in love. It's the perfect lunch for me on those days when Big Kid needs a cooked lunch (two grilled cheese sandwiches not asked for at the same time!), and when the twins need EVERYTHING I try to eat. I make plenty of cheesy rice and they eat it with me, and we're all happy!

I wonder what else will turn out amazing with some velveeta melted on it... hmmmmm

  1. That sounds like a good idea! Thanks for sharing it. :) My daughter has celiac sprue, and sometimes it is hard to come up with quick lunch ideas. She likes rice, but I wouldn't have thought to put the cheese on it.

    Sometimes, we eat warm white rice with milk and sugar on it.

    Hope you are having a good week!
