So simple! My kids love these! These are my emergency snack for my daughter if we are going somewhere that will have desserts that I know she won't be able to have.
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup semisweet morsals OR enough hersheys kisses for each cookie 16-20 depending how large of a cookie you make.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.. Stir together 1st 5 ingredients in med. bowl until well blended. Stir in choc. chips, if using them instead of the hershey's on top.
Drop dough on cookie sheet 2 inches apart. I round them out.
Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned. If using the kiss on top, remove pan from oven place kiss on top push down just slightly and it will mold there. Not too hard or the choc. will melt. Let cool. ENJOY!!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
2 cups sugar
1 (16 oz.) can pureed pumpkin I used FRESH pureed pumpkin
1 1/2 cups oil
3 cups flour -gluten free
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 package chocolate chips
I added 3/4 teaspoon xanthum gum and 1 teaspoon vanilla
Gluten free flour mix comes from the Book Gluten Free Baking I use it as my staple...it is the best I have found so far...you make it with 2 cups brown rice flour, 1/3 cup tapioca flour and 2/3 cup potato starch (use stone ground for all) I use Bob's Red Mill and it works fine.
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, and oil until smooth. Add in dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake 16-20 minutes at 400 degrees. Makes 24-30 muffins.

They are peanut butter bars and very simple to make.
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup Karo syrup
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 cup dry powdered milk
Mix all ingredients together and put in an 8x8 pan in the fridge. Cut and enjoy. We haven't tried this yet, but you could also roll them into balls and dip them in chocolate. I am thinking this will be fun for the holidays and put some sprinkles on them!

Ok, for the recipe: And by the way, I don't measure my ingredients very often, so you just need to go by taste.
For the tomato sauce:
Several diced tomatoes
Mix all together and if possible set in fridge for a few hours.
Cook noodles according to package directions, drain, rinse well. Put into a large serving bowl. Pour tomato mixture on noodles add chopped black olives and feta cheese. Toss, serve and enjoy!

I love bread! This has been a huge stuggle for me since my daughter was diagnosed with Celiacs. I have yet to find a good gluten free bread. They are so expensive to buy and be terrible to go to waste. I have found that Whole Foods Sandwich bread is ok for french toast, or toast, or grilled cheese, but to just make a big, juicy sandwich with meat, cheese and lettuce that is soft and moist, I have yet to find. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Kinnikinnick claims that they have a moist and soft bread. Has anyone tried it?

My daughter is the only one we know in our family who has Celiac's. She is only 8 years old. Still a kid. What kid doesn't like rice crispy treats. So yummy, so simple!
Recipe: Gluten Free Rice Cereal (You can't use Kellogg's because it contains malt flavoring)
1 bag of marshmellows
1 stick of butter
Optional add ins: sprinkles, mini m&m's, chocolate chips, peanut butter, etc...

I was just showing EB this video (here) of Elizabeth Hasselbeck talking about her diagnosis and living with Celiac's Disease. It is always encouraging for EB to hear that other people live with this too. The exciting thing is that there is more and more awareness of Celiacs now. Lots of yummy things you can make that are gluten free! I am definately going to check out this new book.
We are in the middle of a kitchen renovation, but as soon as we are finished, I plan to post lots of my yummy recipes that we eat!

I am so excited! I just have learned that Betty Crocker is coming out with some gluten free mixes. I am hoping the price point is good too! Can't wait to taste them! You can check it out
here. I have found some really terrific recipes for cookies, cakes and brownies, but you just can't beat the quick mixes when you don't have the time to make it from scratch.
