Gluten-free cookie dough..say what?!

I'm allergic to wheat, I'm allergic to dairy, I'm allergic to soy...actually I'm NOT allergic to any of these food categories, but many people are.

The folks at Cheerios were an Allrecipes product sponsor for the month of November, and I was one Allstar who was tasked with creating a recipe. This particular recipe was to be designated as Gluten-free. Not knowing anything about celiacs or gluten intolerance, I had a crash course in foods safe for those who are following a gluten-free diet.

This is my life (non-food post)

Tonight I had a long soul cleansing time of crying. I knew today would be an extremely busy day, and I didn't know how or if anything would turn out as planned.

Bacon meets Brussel Sprouts

The other day while at the commissary, I went a bit crazy. I had walked in with a challenge of "buy a vegetable you can't stand" - well these fellows were at the top of my list. I'm still not comprehending how they went from the produce bin into my basket onto the conveyor belt where I actually paid a cashier for these gross bits of green aka Brussel sprouts *shudders* Regardless, I now had Brussel sprouts to cook AND eat!

Oodles of Noodles

My life is busy, and I'm sure many readers can echo the same sentiment. The last thing I want to do at 2040 hours (8:40 pm for my non-military time readers) is cook dinner.  I do *LOVE* cooking, but not at that hour!  What to do?  Well in my case I turned to a Smithfield recipe.

Product testing -video!

I was recently asked if I would be interested in product testing a garlic peeler.  I naturally said yes as I have never used one, electing to often use my garlic press which peels the garlic in one step.  
There are often recipes which call for sliced garlic, which renders using a garlic press useless.  In a case where peeled garlic is a must, it would be a handy gadget to own. 
This video is a first for me, so I hope you enjoy!


Pros: Silicone; cleans easily; bright color makes it easy to find; 
Cons: If the garlic is too small it will fall through (this video didn't show it, but yes I experienced this -different video!) Sometimes the garlic doesn't peel on the first try.

Rating: 4 stars

Toss the Blue Box!

August has been a busier month than usual.  I had not one product sponsor I was working with, but I eagerly volunteered to work with Barilla Pronto Pasta!  What's not to love about pasta?!  It is a good, healthy carb and who doesn't love the cheesy goodness that often accompanies pasta, especially when it's Macaroni and Cheese!!!
