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!

Happy Independence Day!!

We're reading The Story of America's Birthday, to familiarize the twins with the holiday in general.  It's hard to explain religious freedom to four year olds, it was easier to tell them that the colonists didn't like the King of England so they started a new country. Was that the wrong thing to say? LOL!

Our July 4th projects are mostly planned to start in July, since we took a week off for summer vacation. The twins wanted to make a flag, so this is what we came up with! They cut blue and red paper up, then drew their version of a flag - just the box and the stripes. Then they glued the pieces on, and put white star stickers in the blue box. They loved the project, and were very proud when they were done. They couldn't bear to see the Octonauts go so we still have Kwazii, Peso, Pinto and Captain Barnacles on the red white and blue bulletin boards! I think today we might make fireworks with glue and glitter on white paper :)
