Back in June I was given the opportunity to sample and review some products from Gimbal's Fine Candies. I had never heard of them before, but since I love trying new gluten free products, I definitely was excited to see what Gimbal's was all about.
This year was the first year that we planted a garden. Although it didn't do as well as I had hoped, we still got a good amount of produce out of it. Two of our veggies thrived big time though, our one cucumber plant and two kale plants. This was awesome since Steven is apparently obsessed with cukes (we literally were picking up to 7 or 8 a week for a couple weeks!) and I love kale. However, I discovered that I had no idea what to do with all the kale besides make salads.
Having a child with a food allergy is hard enough, but what about when it comes to bringing food to school? Not very many schools offer allergy-friendly lunch options, and even if your school does have options, can you trust that there is no cross-contamination? Packing a lunch doesn't have to be a challenge, especially when there are many great nutritious gluten free options out there.
I typically only bake when I get a mad craving for something. Which in this case, I was dying to get my hands on a cinnamon roll. And at the mere mention of it, my husband decided he really needed one too. Not wanting the both of us to turn into ravaging cinnamon-roll craving monsters, I broke down and decided to make some.
When I started Lazy Gluten Free in the summer of 2012, I honestly had no idea what to expect. I was super nervous about sharing my life in such a public space and I was scared about what people would think. I remember shaking as I was about to publish my first post, simply because of nerves.
Summer is always a crazy busy time for us which means that I need recipes that are going to help me get dinner on the table quickly. Not only that, but I look for food that's going to taste good and will make enough for leftovers (I love leftovers for lunch). My husband just got a new job that will require him to bring lunch to work now too, so let the leftover wars begin.
My sister was over the other night for dinner, which doesn't happen as often as it used to. As I was making this dish, and explaining it to Mel, she asked "You seriously haven't made this before?". I honestly had no good answer, I mean, it has 'Lazy' in the name, so why hadn't I made it? Regardless, I have made it now, and it was so lazy and delicious that I plan to make it again.
