Gluten-Free Stuffed Baked Apples

Gluten-Free Stuffed Baked Apples

Sooo, I spoke too soon.  Little Miss has spent the last two days with large welts on her torso, face, hands and feet.  If you remember when this happened before (I did not post a picture – it was heart-breaking), this time was not as bad, and well controlled by antihistamines.  I recall this happened directly…

I haven’t looked back and completed a “best of” post in a long time.  It is interesting, I admit, how even five posts representing this past year can get memories flowing.  For a few years we struggled with my daughter’s food intolerances, and trying new baking techniques…

A Beatrix Potter Tea Party

A Beatrix Potter Tea Party

This year my husband and I decided it was time to bring our two kids home and I would teach them myself.  As a trained high school teacher, I felt pretty confident about the curriculum we would follow and that I could present it well.  AND because I know my kids so well, it is…

A Backyard Camping Party

A Fishing & Camping Backyard Party

Continuing in the campfire theme from the previous four posts, I thought I would share our son’s birthday fishing and camping backyard party from last summer.  My son (now 11) loves to camp and fish, make fires in our backyard pit, and can eat and eat and eat and eat anything sweet.  Therefore, his 10th…
