Watergate Salad

Watergate salad with spoon

Don’t be fooled by the looks of this dish. It is not pretty one bit. But that’s okay because it tastes so so good. Watergate salad is a staple in our family. On my dad’s side of the family, my grandma makes this for all of family meals as a side “salad”. Only it’s not so much a salad. It’s full of marshmallows, pudding mix, pineapple, and Cool Whip. Sounds healthy right? I mean really, it’s […]


Caramel Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake Bars with Pecan Crust {Gluten-Free}

Gluten Free Caramel Apple Cinnamon Cheese Cake Bars with Pecan Crust

  Oh boy am I ready for Fall. Why you ask? I absolutely love love love the flavors of Fall! Cinnamon, pumpkin, caramel, apple. All equally delicious and fabulous in my book! So I started off my fall baking by using a good chunk of the fall flavors all in one recipe. (Don’t worry pumpkin, you’re next!) Gluten-free caramel apple cinnamon cheesecake bars. They didn’t turn out exactly how I had originally envisioned (But really, do […]


Crustless Mini Quiches {gluten-free}

Gluten Free Mini Quiche

At my first family party after I found out I had celiac’s disease, I quickly realized what I was going to miss the most.. my Aunt Sheila’s mini quiches. She has made these little beauties ever since I can remember for all of our family get togethers. I decided then and there that her mini quiches needed to be my next gluten free project. With just a few quick changes, I was able to make […]


Indian Bridal Sugar Cookies

Indian Bridal Sugar Cookies

How in the world do I keep getting in these long stretches of not blogging? Definitely not okay people! I promise I’m going to strive to be a better, more regular blogger. Although I do realize I’ve said that the last five posts (but who’s counting?)… So we’ll see. But baking and blogging really does make me a happier person. I love looking back at my old posts and seeing what I’ve made and the […]


Baked Oatmeal Cups


  Yes, I still exist, I promise. I’ve been cooking/baking the past few weeks and have selfishly been depriving you of what I’ve been making. There have indeed been pictures on Facebook. But they’re the ones from my cell phone when it’s 11pm at night and the lighting is so atrocious that my food looks yellow. Not blog worthy. (Even though I plan on posting the picture from my cell phone anyways.. don’t judge). Then I […]


In a nutshell: Gluten-Free at the United Center


If you know me at all, then you’ll see that this post is very fitting as it involves hockey, food, and beer. That’s right people.. we’re talking about eating gluten free at a Blackhawks game. I love going to Blackhawks games at the United Center so when I was diagnosed with Celiac disease I was a little bummed. There’s nothing better than watching hockey with a nice cold beer in your hand while chowing down on a Sweet Baby […]
